One Sentence: Sports movies are always so good.
Release Date: 23-Sep-2011
This story, is less than 10 years old. Anyone who knows baseball, knows this story. You can look it up right now and know what happened in the movie without even seeing it. None of that matters. This is a Baseball movie, and it captures you, even if you hate baseball.
There is a sort of magic with sports movies, you can get behind these characters and want them to win or lose. The lines are so clear, you can see everyone’s dream and you can hope with them. Moneyball does this so very well. It is an underdog story, a look at our world, and that sometimes money doesn’t always win. Brad Pitt and Jonah Hill make you believe, and they become your heroes for 2 hours. You want them to win, you hold your breath and you hope.
I think everyone would like this movie. Even those of you who hate sports. This is one of my favorite movies of the year, and I think it is well worth a full price ticket to the theater. You can also get away with renting it, if you are not dying for a baseball movie this weekend, but I would say you should see this one any way you can.
