Moneyball

MoneyBall

MoneyBall starting Brad Pitt is a movie that many missed.

Recommended by many of our friends and partners it made for an ideal home movie.

The film has several arcs and patterns – the classic sport/baseball story, the characters and their journey from abyss to passion, mathematics and the rise of the “nerd” and many more.

It’s beautifully made an holds the tension well.

You care about the players and the leads.

You see behind the romance to the numbers.

It will make you think.

The idea that most of the market doesn’t understand the game and undervalues what’s important – is something we can all get I believe and makes the movie worth watching for that alone.

Do yourself a favour and get hold of this today.. and settle in for a proper movie.

A movie that doesn’t rely on sci-fi cgi.. (though we love that)

If you’ve seen Baseball before.. all the better..

if not maybe you’ll want to..

Moneyball is an American 2011 biographical sports drama film directed by Bennett Miller from a screenplay by Steven Zaillian and Aaron Sorkin. The film is based on Michael Lewis’s 2003 nonfiction book of the same name, an account of the Oakland Athletics baseball team’s 2002 season and their general manager Billy Beane’s attempts to assemble a competitive team. In the film, Beane (Brad Pitt) and assistant GM Peter Brand (Jonah Hill), faced with the franchise’s unfavorable financial situation, take a sophisticated sabermetric approach towards scouting and analyzing players, acquiring “submarine” pitcher Chad Bradford (Casey Bond) and former catcher Scott Hatteberg (Chris Pratt), and winning 20 consecutive games, an American League record.
Columbia Pictures bought the rights to Lewis’s book in 2004.[4] After a number of years in development, the film was featured at the 2011 Toronto International Film Festival[5] and was released on September 23, 2011 to a box-office success and positive reviews. The film was nominated for six Academy Awards including Best Actor and Best Picture.

The Book of Eli is a 2010 American post-apocalyptic action film directed by the Hughes brothers, written by Gary Whitta, and starring Denzel Washington, Gary Oldman, Mila Kunis, Ray Stevenson and Jennifer Beals.

The movie came out and left many people blown away.

The vision of the future is very stark, and probably closer to one truth than many would like to consider. It clearly draws on several films from the past – mad max, many from the world of Asian cinema, and yet it has a very unique feel.

Denzel Washington remains in our view a real master of his craft and someone who we know is getting better and better.

For the would be film maker it highlights several key points.

The mind is more important than the reality.

A lot of the story of Book of Eli comes from the audience, the soundtrack, the look of the film, the editing and the production.

This is a movie that we urge you to watch (just don’t be in a scared mood before you do), and several of the key points will make you jump and raise your tension. Notice how they do this.

Also how “known” elements in a new context open up a whole new perception.
