Field of Dreams
If you believe the impossible, the incredible can come true.
Ray Kinsella is an Iowa farmer who hears a mysterious voice telling him to turn his cornfield into a baseball diamond. He does, but the voice's directions don't stop -- even after the spirits of deceased ballplayers turn up to play.
"If you build it, he will come".
There are movies that have an effect on you no matter what sort of mood you're in. Phil Alden Robinson's "Field Of Dreams" has had me in tears every time I've watched it. Unfairly described as a Baseball film, it's so much more than that.
Kevin Costner was in the middle of his heyday back in 1989 when this magical movie hit the cinemas. Magical you say? Well what would you call a film where an Iowa farmer hears voices in his cornfield and then plays Baseball with dead former legends of the game. It's a movie that shouldn't have worked, but with Robinson's tender touch giving the film more than a little…
Every Friday afternoon I will glance at the clock near me and do a quick calculation of the minutes remaining in my work day, and thus the countdown begins. Leaving work and heading home to the people I love, the television I watch and the Blu-ray collection I worship is always a terrific moment regardless of the day of the week, but man, nothing beats a Friday on the cusp of a lazy, relaxing weekend.
This particular Friday, each passing minute felt like a tiny step towards something even more special and I could barely contain my excitement. Sunday is Easter and I get to experience the amazing moment when my daughter discovers what the bunny left her, a reminder…
The moment when you realize and accept that your parent(s) aren't just authority figures or breadwinners but people who had unique hopes and dreams, some of which came true, and some of which did not, people who aren't perfect, who don't have the answer for everything, who have scars that they will carry their entire lives, that is what Field of Dreams is.
Taking a ridiculously manipulative storyline about Kevin Costner hearing voices causing him to build a baseball field for dead baseball players while questioning his own purpose yet taking it seriously, Field of Dreams works on all levels of filmmaking. It's cast, from Kevin Costner, to James Earl Jones, to Ray Liotta, and even Burt Lancaster hit all the right notes in making such a story work, it's direction and atmosphere hit the down home level of nostalgic innocence spot-on, the themes regarding regrets and second chances are strong enough to many anyone with such issues weep at what's happening on screen, and the score from the late James Horner gives the feel of what the characters are going through.
Decent movie. Fascinating cultural artifact. Hope I can find time to write a full review.
Here's the thing with Field of Dreams, it's a film that was able to interest me in baseball even though I don't care for the sport. I've got nothing against the sport, I actually would like to learn more about baseball, it's just that I've never seen a game and don't know anything about the sport. I live in Scotland, baseball is an American sport. Field of Dreams managed this because it's a lot more than just a baseball game. It's about achieving your dreams. Many people have told me how good this film is and they were right. Field of Dreams is a fantastic film. It weaves genres so fluently and makes a film that could leave viewers with…
I think this was a good movie.It was confusing for me because of the voices, the people turning into others, and his father coming to life, and more. Nothing bad about the movie that I see. I recommend this movie.
baseball is an unexplained phenomenon. i have been to three baseball games and i actually know less about baseball now than i did before. so it makes sense that baseball is a supernatural force that talks to kevin costner.
If you're the type of person who would enjoy a pointless scavenger hunt with hints whispered by ghosts that only a few of the protagonists can understand, then this is the film for you.
Otherwise still osrt of enjoyable. Great cast as well.
I finally watched 'that movie that makes men cry'. I'm so glad I did. Iowa never looked so good.
It's a Wonderful Life with baseball. Easy but accurate.
Nothing gets me like a film about fathers and sons (this video essay on film fathers made me cry, so you can imagine what the end of Field of Dreams did to me; not surprisingly, the two do overlap). On a related note, I've watched Field of Dreams, Boy, The Breakfast Club, Son of Saul and Midnight Special in the last week - safe to say it's been pretty emotional around here lately.
I'm sorry. I just found this boring.
After visiting the set I decided to rewatch this film.
I can't see anything wrong with the film the acting is fine. The sets are fine. The stories a bit cheesy. I just sort off feel meh about it. Maybe I'll watch it again. Maybe.
I can see why my dad likes this film, the characters are almost obsessed with baseball as he is.
Once again, I'm left asking how the world this movie has such high ratings. It's well directed and Kevin Costner fits the role. Those are the only positive things that I can say. As for the rest of it: silly.
I haven't watched this in a long time, and although it still holds up for the most part, the magic of the first viewing can never be re-attained.
Its a great whimsical tale told with a lot of hope, humour and heart.
Complete list. :-(
