    GREAT FLICK. i think it just showed what a quad can be. i mean seriously, u cant make a movie about a high dependant quad, they cant do anything, it doesnt inspire anybody. no offense.

    Agreed from the small part I saw of it.

    WTH I happen to know a high quad who is the most intelligent guy I have ever encountered. He accomplishes great feats......with his MIND. Far more inspirational to me than tossing a velcroed ball around a court.

    How narrow-minded

    Yes you can.

    Rory O'Shea Was Here.

    Great Film and story. Not contrived or with forced and manufactured sympathy. Not a "feel good" story about tough strong quads living the good life, but funny, sad, touching, and sometimes brutal, glimpse into lives of 2 tough kick ass crips who just have to deal....

    You don't need Crips to shout out how great and independent they are, to "prove" their strength and worth....

    Many simply live it and reveal their strength in quiet but undeniably powerful ways.

    But did they win a shiny trophy at the end of the movie?

    Murderball is a good thing because it got a lot of people to come out and play rugby that wouldn't have otherwise.

    I am wondering: is this need of yours to put down and disparage anybody who doesn't fit into your deluded view of "the super quad" something pathological? Or is it just plain old fashioned rudeness?

    Just a question from somebody who "can't do anything"....

    No, actually Rory dies at the end.

    I was up late one night recently and saw a movie with Wesley Snipes, Helen Hunt and other pretty good actors about life in a rehab facility. It was pretty interesting eventhough I feel a little uncomfortable when movies show a bit too much about our lives to AB people. In one scene he is making love to his girlfriend and the bag leaks and he pisses all over the bed. Yikes. Still an interesting, emotional movie to me.
