My problem when writing a movie review is that I don't know the names of any actors. The only guy I actually knew the name of in this movie was Harrison Ford, and I will get to him in a second. But Chadwick Boseman, the actor who played Jackie Robinson, was just awesome in this movie, which I felt was everything I have ever heard or knew about the most important thing to ever happen to the sport I love, Baseball.

Chadwick Boseman has done some TV and movies, it seems, but I just looked at his resume and nothing he did appears to have been on my radar. I won't make that mistake again. I looked like Jackie and sounded like him. I remember Jackie through the 60s and early 70s being a fighter for civil rights and being a man and Boseman was everything I thought a young Robinson had to be in the movie. The restraint, the anger, the love for Rae - all that was powerful.

Then there is Harrison Ford as Rickey. Great presence and everything I thought Rickey should have been.

As far as I am concerned this is now the best baseball movie of all time and that is from a guy who has seen Pride of the Yankees more times than I can count as well as Field of Dreams and Eight Men out many times as well.

oh, and if you think it is too heavy, there are plenty of funny moments and plenty of other good performances. Worth going soon.



We'll be back right after order has been restored here in the Omni Center.

Why are there no clear dishwashers? Glad they went out on such a good note. Pornography Box = Computer Nice to hear Salma Hayek and Julianne Moore get new accents. It makes me so sad to see The Office fumbling and stumbling toward their finale.
