Favorite Baseball Movie
Verified purchase
I love this movie. If I turn on the MLB Network and this is on I always end up watching it. And I have the DVD, too. I think the acting is well done and we're treated to James Earl Jones and the great Burt Lancaster. Both were outstanding. Costner and Madigan are perfect in their roles. Aside from the fact that Ray Liotta batted from the wrong side of the plate as Shoeless Joe Jackson, it was a great movie. It's sad to think that the real Shoeless Joe was banned for life from baseball after the Black Sox Scandal. Evidence of his participation was circumstantial at best and many baseball pundits question his participation based on the excellent stats he had during the series. He batted .345. In any event, baseball missed out on a great ballplayer. Check him out. Thirteen seasons and a lifetime average of .356. Considered by many baseball historians as one of the best hitters ever. He was thirty-two years old when he was banned but that last season, in his thirties, he batted .382.

But I digress. This movie was excellent. "If you build it, he will come" (not "they" will come.) Who is the he? Ray Kinsella has no idea and yet he follows the voice and embarks on a journey in his VW bus (I have the diecast model of it). Every part of this movie is beautifully done and it's one of those movies that when it ends you're sad to say goodbye to the characters. Word of advice: have a hankie or tissues on hand for the ending. And I'm talking to the male viewers.

Feel Good Movie
Verified purchase
It's been 30 years since I've seen this and I ordered this 4k. The sound is 4* and the picture quality is 4* out of 4*.
It was a pleasure to sit back and watch this unfold. First thoughts, damn I wish I could dream like that. The second thought was I do every time I watch films like this.

Terrible on Paper, Works Great as Nouveau Classic
Verified purchase
This movie by all rights ought to be a ham-fest.

The ground is littered with films that ask us to feel one way, and instead we feel the opposite. During a poorly-made scene which asks us to feel tension, we might laugh (Untouchables, I'm looking at you.)

But look out, here comes Field of Dreams. When Field of Dreams asks me to get goosebumps, I do! And when Field of Dreams asks me to get teary-eyed, I do!

A great re-watch.

A story of redemption
Verified purchase
Field of Dreams is a story about redemption. It’s redemption for the White Sox team that was banned for throwing the 1919 World Series and more. Most importantly it’s about Kevin Costner’s father who he believed never accomplished anything. One of the twists of the story is that it includes James Earl Jones as a famous writer and activist from the 1960s who was also an avid baseball fan. Cosnter goes looking for Jones and they add some humor along the way. The story is uplifting and you don’t need to like baseball to enjoy it.

A deep dive into the heart and soul of baseball...
Verified purchase
This is a truly great movie. This was probably the fourth or fifth time I watched this movie and I think it had a much greater impact this time as I think I really felt the deep meaning and got the true message of the plot. Without giving it away, let me
Just say it is the best ode to babseball that I know of and not just to the game, but to the magical link that baseball provides between generations and how it such a major part of the fabric of our country. I’d give it 6 stars if I could.

Outstanding 4K Transfer
Verified purchase
I know this film well, having purchased it on DVD and Blu-Ray. This transfer is a notable improvement in both Video and Audio, which is quite an accomplishment since the Blu-Ray edition was excellent.,

Surprisingly disappointing
Verified purchase
Nothing to say about the movie. This film is just fantastic. This said, the 4K aspect of this Blu-ray is nowhere to be seen (literally). The image is very graining (yes, I know, is an old movie filmed on celluloid but I have seen older movies with a much better transfer quality). One would think is an old VHS. The audio -DTS x- is OK though there are not really scenes where you can hear the wow! factor of it. If you like the movie no problem having this disk but don’t expect it to be the one you choose to show your new home theater to family and friends

This is an uplifting film where Costner's character is selected obscurely by the almighty to perform some tasks on behalf of some deceased early 20th century ball players. Ultimately by doing so at great risk he gets his reward.

One of Costner's finest performances and James Earl Jones is outstanding in support. Good character development and the rest of the supporting cast is good too. More of a human interest story without much special effects. Moves along well and dammit, you feel good when it's over. Then you have to love the main character's driving an old Vw bus from Iowa to Boston, then to Minnesota and back without breaking down ;-)
