movie: Moneyball

We watched Moneyball this weekend. Here’s a quick description from IMDB: “Oakland A's general manager Billy Beane's successful attempt to put together a baseball club on a budget by employing computer-generated analysis to acquire new players.”

I had mixed feelings about this movie. The acting is really good from Brad Pitt to Jonah Hill (who actually plays a different character this time) to Philip Seymour Hoffman. On the other hand, the story moves pretty slowly.
For example, there are meetings where a bunch of old men talk about which baseball players they want to trade. Not very exciting. Also, there is a lot of tobacco spitting, which is disgusting, even when it comes from Brad Pitt.
Overall, the movie was okay. It wasn’t exactly my cup of tea, so , you know, I guess I’m probably biased from the beginning. Moneyball gets a B-.
