Field of Dreams Reviews
"If you build it... he will come"
A one-of-a kind film that is both magical and heartwarming. As feel good movies go, this is easily the best one I've ever seen. It's not really even close. It's got such an innocent and feel good ending. For many movies this can be a disaster if not done properly. Field of Dreams does it right and it turns out very rewarding. This is one of the most satisfying movies I have ever seen. From beginning to end it is really a joy to watch.
As both a huge fan of baseball and movies, I was asking myself the same question as the baseball players in the movie; "Is this Heaven?" And yes, yes it is. This is pure and simple the greatest baseball related movie ever made. Maybe the best sports related movie ever made. It's really hard to describe just how much I love this movie.
The subtle performances of the cast go a long way in further exploring the deepness of this movie. Kevin Costner gives one of his better performances. Amy Madigan is really good also as the wife. She has a scene at a PTA meeting that is really funny. James Earle Jones gives a good performance. Then there's Ray Liotta as the one and only "Shoeless" Joe Jackson.
Now, if your a baseball fan, you've undoubtedly heard of "Shoeless" Joe and the Blacksox Scandal of 1919. A great double feature would be this and Eight Men Out. Eight Men Out is a great movie about the 1919 World Series and what really went on with "Shoeless" Joe and the seven other players who were kicked out of the league for throwing the series.
This movie is a must watch and I believe most people will not be disappointed when they are done watching this truly remarkable film.
Shoeless Joe Jackson: Ty Cobb wanted to play, but none of us could stand the son-of-a-bitch when we were alive, so we told him to stick it!
Even so, I simply loved the movie. It was inspiring and moving.
What I really like about this movie is the just the magic behind the message. A reminder to make a real attempt to note the most signifgant and amazing moments in our life and to not be afraid to embrace and live out our dreams.
Kevin Cosner heads the movie and puts on an amazing performance like always. The movie naturally will come as a greater flick for those who love or have an appreciation for baseball and the role it's played in American Society.
For those who dislike baseball it's still worth a watch but may not be defined as the classic as others see it as.
Regardless, it's worth a watch, and in my opinion is good enough to back up the reason of why it's been a favorite of many for the past two decades.
"Field of Dreams" is a one of a kind movie about baseball, reminiscing, and enjoying life for the better things of it instead of the obvious. Whether you like baseball or not, if you like movies that have a lot of meaning to them, I definitely recommend getting "Field of Dreams." It features a great performance from Kevin Costner, Ray Liotta, James Earl Jones, and everybody else that was in the movie. "Field of Dreams" is definitely one of the best movies ever made. NOTE: That was my Amazon review from the year 2001. Awesome, classic movie right here.
