  • Brad Pitt is Angry

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Brad Pitt is angry and thought provoking
    Cons: Pacing is off

    Summary: I'm not a huge fan of baseball nor do I follow it. However, I played little league so I know the rules and the definition of the statistical categories. So, the whole concept of using statistical analysis to build a team intrigued me enough to watch ... read more

    Pros: Some interesting moments, OK performances
    Cons: Story and approach don't make for an especially interesting sports movie

    Summary: Brad Pitt plays a former ‘coulda been a contender’ baseball player turned GM of the Oakland Athletics baseball team, who in addition to having the worst name for a baseball team I’ve heard, are much lower-budgeted than their more ... read more

  • Entertaining but very dubious triumph-of-impersonal-rationality movie

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Dorsey, Hill, Pitt
    Cons: pacing and fundamental dishonesty of the story

    Summary: If baseball ever was “America’s pastime,” that was in the past by 2001 when those “Damn’ Yankees” won again and then hired free agent Jason Giambi away from the ever cash-strapped Oakland A’s. A’s ... read more

    Pros: Excellent cast and performances

    Mar 23, 2012 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: - Great performances from all involved
    - Well-written
    - Relatable and poignant
    Cons: - For some viewers, there may not be enough actual baseball scenes

    Summary: There are a lot of sports movies that deal with underdogs rising up and succeeding against all odds. But what 'Moneyball' brings to the table is so much more. While it may be a 'baseball movie', its main themes and messages can be applied to sports fans ... read more

  • FANS VS STATS

    Mar 20, 2012 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Fascinating look at baseball.
    Cons: None.

    Summary: I've often been amazed at the salaries of professional athletes. I mean it's great that they have the abilities that they do and can perform unlike anyone else out there. But to be paid millions of dollars to basically play a game? I'm more concerned ... read more

  • Many Attend, Few Understand

    Feb 17, 2012 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Interesting, (mostly) true story, competent acting.
    Cons: Not enough baseball.

    Summary: The problem with true stories is that they often deserve better endings than they get.  When those stories get made into movies starring Brad Pitt, or a like high-wattage movie star, they almost always end up getting better endings.  Sometimes, ... read more

    Pros: charming Brad Pitt; likable cast and story
    Cons: too long; not that compelling

    Summary: Mildly entertaining. Pleasant viewing. Sensitive characters and thoughtfully-developed, leisurely-paced story at two hours and thirteen minutes long. 2011’s Moneyball is a love song crooned to the game of baseball, even if its main character ... read more
