    Just saw Moneyball. Loved it.

  • Moneyball = TOTAL BORE

  • bdj

    In spite of a great supporting cast, Pitt owns this movie. Hoffman’s crusty old baseball manager is pitch-perfect, and a wide-eyed, insecure Hill continues to be one of today’s most likable of young actors.

    Pitt — who has always been a great actor — rips through the dialogue in one of the easiest, funniest and most natural performances of the year. He’s electrifying and — if you’ll allow one last bit of wordplay — Pitt and this movie knock it out of the park.

    I think movie goers really are thirsty for a good film. Brad and Moneyball rock.

    Moneyball: 6 things people are talking about From Brad Pitt’s award-worthy performance to the absence of sports cliches, here’s what you need to know about this weekend’s big baseball movieBest Opinion: Orlando Sentinel, Entertainment Weekly, NY Times…
    Just in time for Major League Baseball’s playoffs, Moneyball, this weekend’s drama about the 2002 Oakland Athletics, is generating tons of baseball-related buzz. Brad Pitt plays Billy Beane, a onetime New York Mets draft pick who becomes general manager of the A’s. Frustrated that his cash-strapped club can’t compete with the deep pockets of teams like the Yankees, Beane buys into the notion that statistical analysis could be used to field a winning team of little-known and undervalued players. Oscar-winner Aaron Sorkin (The Social Network) adapted the script from Michael Lewis’ best-selling book, and the film is already being hailed as “an absolute triumph of culturally relevant filmmaking.” Here, six things everybody’s talking about:

    1. Brad Pitt hits it out of the park
    This may be Pitt’s “smartest, subtlest performance ever,” says Roger Moore at the Orlando Sentinel. He’s tasked with playing a “caring but absent dad,” a “ruthless” boss, and a “thin-skinned ex-jock” — and pulls it all off with aplomb. It’s a textured performance, says Owen Gleiberman at Entertainment Weekly, revealing Pitt in “classic, game-on movie-star mode,” but layered with a “deep river of self-doubt.” Indeed, “it’s hard to imagine anyone but Mr. Pitt in the role,” says Manohla Dargis at The New York Times.

    2. And Jonah Hill delivers a winning performance
    Hill’s turn as an Ivy League number-cruncher who develops a new way to mathematically evaluate players is “understated and fascinating,” says Roger Ebert. He exercises “comedy muscles we haven’t seen him use on screen before,” says Alonso Duralde at The Wrap. The “manic-nebbish energy” he employs in films like Superbad is toned way down — to great effect.

    3. This film will appeal to sports-averse audiences
    “I don’t care about sports,” says Duralde. Yet “I was riveted by Moneyball.” This isn’t so much a movie about baseball as it is “a tale of bold visionaries.” The lessons about defying the conventions of business could apply to any field, from politics to entertainment. But that’s not to say it’s not a worthy addition to the sports film canon. It’s the best baseball movie since Bull Durham, ventures Gleiberman. Actually, says Michael Phillips at the Chicago Tribune. It’s the “best sports movie in a long time, period.”

    4. It (thankfully) avoids sports movie cliches
    The most inspirational baseball movies have the underdog knock a monster hit into the lights during the film’s most climactic game, showering the stands with sparks like fireworks, says Phillips. Moneyball “is not that film. It’s better than that film.” Under a lesser director, the Cinderella story could have been “rendered dull or sappy.” Thankfully, agrees Ebert, it’s not a film that focuses on Big Games, instead turning to the “terse, brainy dialogue” and fascinating game of numbers to provide its most exciting moments.

    5. Of course, it’s still not perfect
    Audiences may be annoyed that they don’t ever see an edgier side to Beane, especially since his ballplaying dreams were crushed so spectacularly at a young age, says Phillips. And the sentimental ending could frustrate sports movie fans used to a “certain kind of wow” moment in the final act. But while the film lacks the “flair” audiences come to expect from high-quality sports films, says Scott Tobias at The A.V. Club, its intelligence more than makes up for it.

    6. Moneyball is an Oscar frontrunner
    “If I had to predict right now,” says Jeffrey Wells at Hollywood Elsewhere, Moneyball would be at the top of the list of Best Picture contenders. The film’s screenwriters, director Bennett Miller, and Jonah Hill will all likely find themselves in the mix as well, says Sean O’Connell at Hollywood News. And don’t forget the leading man: “Moneyball punches Brad Pitt’s ticket into this year’s Best Actor Oscar race.”

    Baby Jane is going to be upset when she realizes that McGreedy bid 3 times what the painting was worth. Ole girl will have to go into her Friends reserves. However, hopefully her PR bulldog will spin it to make her look charitable and not the cheapskate she really is.

    “Moneyball” review
    By John M. Guilfoil

    First thought: This is my new favorite baseball movie not named “Sandlot.”

    But by the time five minutes had passed, I was delving deeper into my childhood evil dog and PF Flyers pastimes than anyone every should have.
    Directed by: Bennett Miller

    Written by: Stan Chervin, Steve Zaillian, and Aaron Sorkin, based on “Moneyball: The Art of Winning an Unfair Game’’ by Michael Lewis

    Starring: Brad Pitt, Jonah Hill, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Kerris Dorsey

    Rated: PG-13

    “Moneyball” is a masterpiece, but in every imaginable way it is the anti- “Sandlot.”

    Where “Sandlot” was a childhood fantasy take on the purity of baseball, “Moneyball” is an adult look at the ugly business side of it.

    The 2002 Oakland Athletics made an unlikely baseball run based on the statistical likelihood of their washout players getting on base, scoring runs and ultimately winning games.

    The theory was that a small-market team with a $40 million payroll could complete and even out-duel the nine-figure salaries of the Red Sox and Yankees by picking up players no one else wanted but who had a proven statistical track record for getting on base. Sometimes that meant putting a catcher on first base and hoping for the best.

    It half-worked. I won’t ruin the entire movie for you, just in case you aren’t a diehard baseball fan.

    The movie is based on Michael Lewis’s 2003 book about the team, and it’s perfectly done with the right balance of humor, pure acting and movie-drama.

    Like any good film, the acting makes it. Brad Pitt plays A’s general manager Billy Beane alongside Jonah Hill’s portrayal of real-life assistant Peter Brand, a student of the stats philosophy, known as sabermetrics. The two play off each other like, well like Brad Pitt and whomever he’s acting next to.

    Philip Seymour Hoffman also adds something to the film, playing manager Art Howe. There is a particular poignant scene between him and Pitt after Pitt’s character trades away a star player. Definitely worth watching again.

    One of the most gripping takeaway points from “Moneyball” is that it ofers a glimpse into the way Major League Baseball treats an aging player who’s hit 35-year-old and lost a step or two. It also shows the dichotomy between the East Coast baseball powerhouses from really Atlanta all the way up to Boston and the smaller markets of nearly everywhere else.

    Director Bennett Miller does a good job crafting a sympathetic feeling for both Beane and his merry band of misfit players.

    (“Moneyball” also shoes Red Sox fans how we ended up with Kevin Youkilis, by the way.)

    The flick is a bit long at 133 minutes, but it’s good enough that you overlook the length. “Moneyball” takes everything that is romantic about baseball and makes it funny, dark and real, while keeping it romantic — like a rocky but steamy relationship. It’s a must-see.

  • hmmm

    meant having dinners

  • let us pray

    @hehehe: keep your fingers crossed. Moneyball is fighting with a Dolphin. one would think that a brad pitt film would be waaaaaaaaay ahead of a dolphin movie. with the way his pr machine paints him as american royalty… decent but not great.

  • let us pray

    @Moneyballis a Masterpiece!: “romantic baseball” is the words brad’s pr team have been using a lot for their movie. ~giggles~

  • Alice

    Only Brad Pitt can sell a baseball movie. I have a new respect for Brad as an actor. He is awesome.

  • Curious George


    Let’s hope the JA fans continue to not see Moneyball. It seems that films they support don’t do well. Look at Aniston’s BO solo..

    So they don’t see the JP movies and they are doing very well.

    Moneyball was expected to be at 2 or 3 this weekend. the fact that it now maybe at #1 is saying something.

    Let the trolls spin spin spin.. I guess they miscalculated.

  • quesiton

    why did ellen say brad is the biggest movie star in the world? i thought angie is bigger or at least the same.. agree?

  • Jones

    Moneyball delivers! Brad Pitt fully nailed the role of Billy Beane and Jonah hill did a stand-up job playing in partner in crime, Peter Brant. Great story, great cast and great performances! The sold out crowd in my neighborhood was totally engrossed in the story, applauded at the end and many remained in their seats discussing the film even after the credits were done and the lights came on. I’m definitely seeing it again! Oscar, meet Brad Pitt.

  • Go Brad!

    The ffers and jenhags are having a meltdown and im loving it!

    How ‘Moneyball’ Almost Never Happened
    Sep 23, 2011 9:42 PM EDT

    It took almost a decade, three directors, three screenwriters, and the unwavering support of Hollywood’s shiniest star, Brad Pitt, to bring “Moneyball” to the screen. Chris Lee reports on the movie’s rocky road out of development hell.

  • alexanderina

    @Cold Hard Math:

    Thanks CHM for your honest opinion of MB. I will see it tomorrow

    Nothing changes on JJ huh. Still crazy as ever.

    We are not all going to love MB, some of us may like it more than others and we should all respect that. We all have our opinions and should be able to state it without being attack for it.

    The people attacking CHM needs to take a step back. She has been on JJ from the beginning with that same username and like me and others long timers we don’t ever change our names. If we have something to say (whether positive or negative) we say it under our original names period

    Let me get the jump on the haters. When Moneyball is a certified box hit. The jenhags and the haters will say it was because of all the publicity Brad got by bringing up the sitcom actress. LOL. I don’t know if Brad will get an Oscar nomination or win a Oscar for his role in Moneyball. If it do happen I am just happy Angelina Jolie will be by his side instead of the 24 hour famewh0re from TV LAND.

    Ticky bought a $450,000 painting at that Haiti art charity auction? Well, now, isn’t a coincidence. That’s only $50,000 less than the pledge she reneged on 2 years ago. And since the auction was for charity she can write it off her taxes…again. How convenient.
