    I heard a lot of people say/write : "A B-movie but Kevin Bacon makes it worth the effort."

    Nope.

    Got bored after the tedious setup. Started watching at double the speed to make it go somewhere. Was not engrossed in the characters ... "I wanna know what happens !"

    Skipped to 6 times the speed during the end.

    But yeah ... Kevin's still the man. Just wish he'd spend his time with better material to work with.

    ★★★★

    True story of the manager of the Oakland Athlethics baseball team who decides to use statistics to form a new team for a small budget and take on the big guys with tons of money.
    I, like many Europeans, have zero interest in baseball as it takes way too long, sounds overly complicated and looks silly. However this movie makes a dull sport look exciting and suspenseful. Brad Pitt and Philip Seymour Hoffman are great as usual, but the big surprise is comedian Jonah Hill who doesn't get played out of his scenes with these men. Interesting.

    ★★★★

    Spectaculary good first part of one of Stephen King's best books. I might be biased as this was the first King novel I ever read (think I was 15 at the time) and the previous attempt didn't fully work for me.

    This one does.

    Already looking forward to chapter 2.
