The only thing I didn't like about the movie was the complete lack of coverage on the ALDS series against Minnesota. This is probably because I'm from Minnesota and that was one of the most memorable series' of all-time for me, but it was a pretty incredible series. coming down to the last out in game 5 (5 game series).

Also, I didn't like all the insinuation that Scott Hatteberg and Chad Bradford played such huge roles in their success. but Tejada, Chavez, and Dye get no love for their offense. and, somehow, Zito-Hudson-Mulder is not even mentioned..


but, good movie, nonetheless.


The on-field action was boring. I didn't want more; I wanted less. They spent way too long on the A's winning streak as if it was the equivalent of winning the world series. Sabermetricians don't care about winning streaks.

The book didn't give much credit to zito-hudson-mulder or Dye. It railed about how horrible Tejada was. So the movie stayed true in that respect. Chavez did get a lot of props in the book as I recall.

Senna - 8/10

I was too young to remember anything from the beginning of his career, but I remember a lot of stuff from 89/90 on, particularly his win in Brazil with only the sixth gear in the last few laps, Nigel Mansell going off track in Japan to give Senna the championship, and watching his last race in Imola.

I loved the footages of the pre-races meeting, but I felt some things in the film were inaccurate and try to make his story "better".

Cowboys and Aliens 5/10
Of course the story and ending were stupid but I had hoped for it to not take itself so seriously and maybe be a little more camp. But it wasn't. Harrison Ford just scowled the entire movie. Not worth it.

X-Men First Class 8/10
Cool movie. Pleasantly surprised.

Captain America 7/10
Not as good as x-men but also pleasantly surprised by this one. Action was good.

I saw Paranormal Activity 3. if you grow a sack to hold your bejeezus in, It probably won't scare them out. relatively entertaining. you prolly won't hate it, but it's nothing to write home about either.

If you don't want straight horror, but short shocks and suspense, try "Play Misty for Me".

The Silence of the Lambs is a great movie. You should really see it if you haven't before.

And which Dawn of the Dead? Romero's one from the 70s or the more recent one? Both are pretty good, but I like Romero's a bit more.

I also recently watched John Carpenter's The Thing for the first time in years. That's another good horror movie that delves into human paranoia and fear, would recommend it (and it's nothing that would scare you).
