All Rise...

Judge David Johnson is two minutes from gravy.

The Charge

When you're out of time, you've got nothing to lose.

The Case

When the game is close, there are few things in sports more exciting than the last two-or-so minutes in pro football. NFL Films has put together a nifty collection of some of the more pulse-pounding moments from its storied history.

Running a generous 142 minutes, Two Minutes to Glory packs in a lot of game footage—sweetened with the typical, high-class NFL Films flair—and it's all truly highlight-worthy. Really, this is like "NFL Red Zone: The Movie."

The two-minute drives are lifted from every era, giving you a hefty and varied selection of gridiron drama. All the classics are here: Joe Montana's heroics, Philadelphia's electrifying follow-up to The Miracle in the Meadowlands, David "motherf—-- -" Tyree, Peyton Manning going to work in the 2006 AFC Championship Game, and (of course,) Tom Brady's legendary body of work.

The presentation on Two Minutes to Glory is top-shelf. Thanks to their inventive angles, cinematic feel, and expansive vault of dramatic symphonic scores, NFL Films has raised the packaging and delivery of sports highlights to an art form.

The DVD: 1.78:1 anamorphic widescreen, Dolby 2.0 stereo, and a three brief bonus segments on Manning's 2006 AFC Championship drive, The Ice Bowl, and "The Sea of Hands," which I'll let you discover for yourself.

The Verdict

Not Guilty. Have I mentioned David Tyree can bite me?
