Moneyball

I’ve made a decision. This is my new favorite baseball movie. It’s just all around really good. Quickly paced, which is a feat considering they are getting through an entire baseball season in two hours. I loved the direction and editing in this one. The way the real life action with the actors switches seamlessly with actual footage from the games is impressive and really well done. I really liked Brad Pitt and Jonah Hill portraying characters that were a little different than their normal work. They worked really well together as well. Philip Seymour Hoffman had the baseball coach thing down perfectly. Then there was Chris Pratt as Scott Hatteberg. I don’t know what it was, but he almost stole this one for me. I thought he was perfect for the role. Something else I really liked was how it took something so specific and a little confusing and made it accessible for the most part. I was still a little confused over the number thing, but I managed to catch up and figure it out. Overall though, this is a great movie to watch, whether you’re a baseball fan or not.

8.5/10
