MONEYBALL

v

Moneyball shows another side of baseball, but still makes it enjoyable.

It's more behind the scene with the drama of winning and losing plus the chance of losing your job if you make a bad decision.

The film is well acted from all bases and I don't have a single negative thing to say.

Brad Pitt delivers the kind of performance I liked, making it all look real and effortless.

You can call this one a peanut and popcorn show for sure.

Baseball is traditionally a game of numbers, both statistically and financially.

But what happens when you don't have the money for top players?

Then it's time to think outside the batter's box; and that's exactly what general manager Billy Beane did in 2001 when he hired an economics major to help him win.

Moneyball (based on a true story) takes you behind the scenes of America's great pastime, where the game is REALLY played.

Well made, well done and batters up!

The baseball movie, Moneyball starring Brad Pitt is based on the true story of the Oakland A's 2002 season.

The film follows general manager Billy Beane, who has very little money to hire players, so he has to throw out some of baseball's most fundamental assumptions and start thinking differently about people being undervalued and get some new ideas about who's worth what.

I thought the picture was one of the most detailed and realistic takes on the game to hit the big screen.
