I like Baseball, there's a wonderful soporific romanticism inside the relatively basic act of spanking a ball within an inch of destruction. Moneyball encapsulates this perfectly.
It's a basic movie, no clever riffing or special effects, just some guys talking (and fighting) about the sport they love. It feels like Rocky. It's like The Wrestler, it's like The Fighter and just like all great sporting events and struggles it wants you to kick off your shoes, put ya feet up and enjoy the show.
