What do people think about Football Hooligan Films, like Green Street or Football Factory?
Also, what makes this genre of film appealing to you?

I bloody hate them, not only do they try and make football violence seem cool but they also give Danny Dyer money and fame

That's pretty much summed up everything I was going to say.

It would be a good idea for you to submit your thoughts on this topic first as if this is seen to be just another homework thread it will be locked.

Is this film studies or sociology homework?

Got to be film studies, isn't it? Is this what we're going to get this year? It'll make a change from women.

Counting down to a substantive post from the OP or a lock.

I don't buy Elijah Wood as a bad ass soccer player, he's too small, he'd get run over on a soccer field. I've watched them and was not impressed. Put Beckham or Christiano in a soccer movie then I'll be impressed. Europeans take their football very seriously, kind of like Americans take their football

I think I hate to admit it way too much - mostly because of a distinct dislike for all things made by Nick Love and Danny Dyer - but I actually enjoyed Football Factory. There, I said it.

I saw a film called ID when I was at uni, my housemate loved it - I thought it was rubbish.

Bloody hell, forgot about that one. It's the one with the undercover copper, right? The only reason I remember it is because the lead actor was in a truly awful sitcom at the time.

I don't mind 'em. They're a commentary on part of our society. Some are good (ID, The Firm, Cass), some are okay (Football Factory), some are awful (Green Street).

ID and The Firm are both great.

They glamorise football hooliganism as much as Trainspotting and Christiane F glamorises heroin. Not much

Well, as it looks like the OP was expecting you all to do his homework, and hasn't come back to show an interest in a discussion - the usual action.
