Mornin '14
Filed under: MONEYBALL

You guys ever get a chance to watch Moneyball? That's a pretty damn good movie. Yes, it's the one where Bobby Kotick has a small cameo role. Regardless of Kotick, this is one of those movies you genuinely refuse to watch because it's about something that doesn't really interest you - baseball. Well, I'm speaking for myself here and I really do know very little about baseball in real life. However, you can know fuck all about baseball and still enjoy the hell out of this movie. It's a great story, taking a more analytical approach and a rather fascinating twist on the traditional game. The book of the same name tells the tale of Oakland Athletics baseball team and its GM Billy Beane.

Unlike most of the current Hollywood crappiness, this film opens our eyes and embraces a new philosophy, enouraging different views, the views of young minds while discarding the traditions of an overblown money-propelled sport that undervalues players for a number of biased reasons. An idea that basically almost changed the entire game based on mathematics and simple logic. 

And, for the record, no; I still haven't watched Withnail & I. But if you guys promise to watch this movie, I vow to watch that one.

Sports movies not centering around the sport itself tend to be good.

Morning.

Facing the Giants. Glorious movie, I highly recommend it.

By the way, I played a bit of softball (baseball for noobs) on a sandy beach with my class a few years back, it's a very fun game. I thought it looked so boring, until I actually played it.

No. TV Shows are the biggest.
  CJ_Parker: That goes without saying. TV shows ain't just a waste…

I agree. I was pleasantly surprised by this movie. Except for the daughter bullshit, the rest was pretty good.

Brad Pitt sucks. Movies about sports suck. In other words, ain't gonna watch your stupid movie.
Vader [STAFF] Jan 09 2014, 06:55 am EST
At least you're being understanding, reasonable and open-minded about it.
Vader [STAFF] Jan 09 2014, 06:55 am EST
Also,

cocks.

Cocks are overrated.

I just watched Star Wreck V : The Pirkening and it was hilarious. Even though it was in Finnish with subtitles. It's on youtube but the quality is horrible. DVD also available to buy or on Netflix.
