Movie Reviews

Resolved--Buy It, Show It To Your Kids
Paul S. White | Los Angeles, CA USA | 07/15/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This documentary is fun, educational, and provides great inspiration for any kid. It showed at the L.A. Film Festival and generated amazing buzz. Everyone I talked to loved it. Of course cable picked it up. Now, not surprisingly, it gets two Emmy nominations. I thought New York Doll was amazing. Resolved--Wow! One Potato Productions scores again. As a lawyer, I recommend this to any aspiring law student (or otherwise) who plans on a career where he or she will have to think and speak on his or her feet. As a partent, I recommend this to everyone who wants to teach their kids about hard work, commitment, and being engaged in life. The fact that a U.S. Supreme Court Justice participated and appeared in this production speaks volumes about the important lessons that can be learned from this film. Kudos to Whitely and One Potato."

""Resolved" is riveting from beginning to end. I appreciated the educational benefits such as learning about the complexity of high school debate and what "spread" is. I was totally caught up in the lives of Sam Iola, Matt Andrews, Richard Funches and Louis Blackwell, all high school debaters with very different backgrounds. I liked the way this documentary weaved a story of hard work, triumph, and failure. It absolutely deserves the two Emmy nominations. I think teenagers would especially enjoy this film."
Great Documentary on High School Debate
William J. Swafford | 08/07/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a great expose on the state of high school debate as it is currently experienced. However, although it is really aimed at the classroom, the product I purchased is limited to private viewing so now I will have to purchase the E-DVD from the company."
