Moneyball (2011)

blu-ray.com
19 August 2013
  • Conclusion: Moneyball represents exceptional filmmaking. It tells a story of hope, of characters who choose to search outside the box in a world that sees the box as gospel, as the end-all, be-all source of knowledge and truth that might not always be right, but the represents the only way to progress towards success. It's a movie that shows that money can buy a lot of things, but it can't always buy smarts and loyalty, both encapsulated in Billy Beane's character arc.

Moneyball Blu-ray Review

  • Excerpt: The Film The sports genre is riddled with underdog stories. We get attached to the players, cheer for them from the sidelines, and (typically) they overcome the odds. In some ways, Moneyball is the typical cinematic Cinderella story. However, the difference here is that the film is focused on the action off the field and behind the scenes. And that's just one of the reasons that it's so darn interesting.

Moneyball Review

12 January 2012
  • Excerpt: Moneyball is the example of how sports movies should be made. It strays from the game it portrays, using it as a book-end, and when needed, a beautiful visual metaphor. Cinematographer Wally Pfister wastes no chance to portray the game with the utmost glamor and visual acuity. Baseball under the lens of a film camera has never looked better.

  • Excerpt: There's really no reason Moneyball should have been a good movie. It's an adaptation of a nonfiction book about an obscure economics practice called sabremetrics, the story of a baseball team that was only moderately successful, even a starring role from Brad Pitt, an actor who usually turns into a bland husk of himself when playing an everyman.

22 September 2011
  • Excerpt: For baseball traditionalists, the principles described in Michael Lewis’ great book Moneyball were an apostasy comparable to the Atkins’ diet, a rejection of decades of received wisdom. In detailing how Oakland A’s general manager Billy Beane fielded a competitive small-market team with less than a third of the New York Yankees’ payroll, Lewis notes a top-down shift in team-building philosophy.
