Excerpt: Moneyball is the second film from director Bennett Miller (who also directed Capote and most recently Foxcatcher). Miller specializes in bringing stories to the public that most people would not know about otherwise.
Excerpt: Casey Beane: "Just enjoy the show". Moneyball is about Billy Beane, the general manager of the Oakland A's and the guy who assembles the team, who has an epiphany: all of baseball's conventional wisdom is wrong.
Excerpt: The general Manager of the Oakland A's Billy Beane tries to set up a good team after the team has lost their three best players. Problem is: The A's are low on money. For this task he hires a man, who thinks that he can find a team on a modest budget, with only using computer statistics...
Brad Pitt and Jonah Hill hit this one out of the park!

Excerpt: I’m not a baseball expert; I’m just a fan of several major league teams like the Yankees. I don’t have to be an expert at baseball to know that Moneyball is a really good movie, even an excellent one as a matter of fact. Blu-ray.com’s Summary: “It's October, 2001.
Excerpt: This was a blind buy for me around Black Friday for $8. This is a great movie for diehard A's fans, a good movie for diehard baseball fans, a yawner for everybody else. It is about sabermatics (bringing math equations into baseball).
Excerpt: Had this movie in my collection a while and finally got around to watching it today. One of the best films i have seen on the profession of baseball yet. Kudos to both Brad Pitt and Jonah Hill for stellar acting jobs here.
Nice film but does suffer from over-sharpening in quite a few scenes.

Excerpt: Great film but I'm very surprised by the reviewer failing to mention the obvious over-sharpening that is apparent in many of the shots. In general the picture quality is superb but in some shots the sharpening is very obvious and detracts from the scene.
Excerpt: Zeer goede film. Typisch dat de beste sportfilms vaak de films zijn die niet echt over sport gaan. Dat het allemaal nog echt gebeurd is ook, maakt het alleen nog maar beter. Op basis van statistieken en ingewikkelde modellen stelt Pitt een succesvol honkbalteam samen.
