    Great drama, very emotional, effective through out, even if you knew nothing about the events that are being portrayed (had to Wikipedia the man midway to see what he had done). The movie is carried with brio by the two main actors. So much so that Philip Seymour Hoffman is almost invisible, in his taciturn role. We need more original dramas like this one, that are neither crass nor cynical. Just a good story, well told and perfectly delivered. 12 years 6 months ago

    I'm not a big sports movie fan, but when the writer of Sports Night is concerned, I'll make an exception. Aaron Sorkin's Moneyball, both a behind the scenes look at pro baseball and a character piece on the man who dared try to change how teams were built, is easily up to the writer's standards. I think baseball is pretty boring to watch on tv as a sporting event, but this movie gets the romanticism of it just right. We need baseball, because baseball makes for the best movies. Brad Pitt's good and all, but the real MVP award goes to Jonah Hill whose very first appearance had me rooting for him to be in the entire picture (he is). Classic Sorkin character. Moneyball's proudly going on my shelf right next to its close cousin, The Damned United. 9 years ago

    I love this movie. It is almost the opposite of the usual sport movie and has great writing. One of my favorites. 10 years 2 months ago
