5.0 out of 5 stars Resolved--Buy It, Show It To Your Kids July 15, 2009
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Riveting July 15, 2009
"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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Earns an A in My Gradebook September 12, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The graphics in this documentary are lively. Two very interesting, diverse pairs of debaters are followed, which creates human interest in the documentary. One of these pairs, black students from an urban school, pose the valid question of whether the contemporary debate technique of "spreading," which arose in response to timed debate portions, is elitist because it allows students time to present many arguments, which in turn necessitates much research by debaters (whose after-school time may be consumed by paid employment)as well as access to on-line databases that poorer school districts may not provide for their students.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Documentary on High School Debate August 7, 2009
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Could have been great... January 6, 2011
This was an alright documentary... well made and somewhat entertaining; but nothing beyond that.

Initially seeing how debate works and getting to witness some events is very interesting, but the novelty wore off pretty quick for me and the kids chronicled just couldn't sustain my interest like I would have hoped. Of course it doesn't help that for most of the movie they are speaking at an ungodly speed to the point where most of the time you can't understand what they're saying. There are bright spots here for sure, and moments of clarity that I really enjoyed; but as a whole film I simply 'liked it', and couldn't bring myself to enjoy it any more than a three star rating would suggest. Resolved, if you are looking for a great film about speech and debate go with 'Rocket Science' instead, even though it's a fictional film it has way more heart.
