Best baseball movies...

Postby johnsamo » Mon Jul 24, 2006 8:54 pm

(1) Field of Dreams - Dudes with father/son issues weep at the end of this one... Those who don't usually weep anyway.

(2) Pride of the Yankees - Great recreation of Gehrig's goodbye speech

(3) Bull Durham - Hilarious and the only movie about the minor leagues

(4) Major League - funny... a lot of great lines

(5) Bad New Bears (both) - best little league movie(s) The original is better overall but the other is worth watching for Billy Bob Thorton's performance

(6) For the Love of the game - real under-rated IMO

(7) The Natural - great ending

(8) The rookie - good acting all around, true story

(9) The Big Lebowski - no baseball, but it's my avatar so I use it. Maybe the funniest dialogue of all time. Bombed at the box office but a cult following now, conventions, midnight sold out show, gotta watch if you've never seen it. Gotta watch again if you have seen it.

I'd say The Natural, Field of Dreams and Bull Durham are by far my favs...

I used to love field of dreams but I've seen it way too many times. I've seen major league as many if not more times yet i still can't get enough of that movie. Bob Uecker really makes that movie watchable over and over again in my opinion. The Natural is high on my list too.
