"This is an old one but a good one. Plus I love Kevin Costner. Great actor I watch anything he’s in. Great movie"
"An incredible film about unfulfilled desires, topped off by a great ending. This is a film that everyone must see. What a swan song for Burt Lancaster! RIP Burt Lancaster and Ray Liotta."
"Happy #baseball Season! In this charming #sports #fantasy, Kevin Costner plays a baseball-loving farmer, Ray, who never reconciled with his father following a fight they had when Ray was a teenager. He begins hearing a voice telling him, "If you build it, he will come." This, combined with a vision of disgraced White Sox player "Shoeless" Joe Jackson (a native of my hometown, btw) leads him to believe that Jackson will appear if he builds a baseball field. It's a hard sell to his wife, Annie, but she agrees, and he does it, declaring, "I have just built something completely illogical." After a time, Shoeless Joe does appear, disoriented, at first, by his own ghostly presence. Joe is followed by his disgraced former teammates, and, later, other players from the game's past. As the voice sends Ray to recruit a controversial and influential, but discouraged, fictitious former author (portrayed by the great James Earl Jones), Ray is forced to analyze his relationship with his father. This is an uplifting film that tells us to believe in the impossible, especially when it's calling to us, and to cherish our relationships. I enjoyed it a lot, which is why I was disappointed when it screeched to a halt, seemingly from nowhere, with almost no descending action. I give it 2 hot dogs and 2 beers (that's 4) out of 5."
