Anyone seen MoneyBall. When it came out I liked it. Recently I revisited and man does it hold up, especially now with analytics taking over all sports.

One of my all time favorite sports movies, even though there's almost no sports in the entire film.

But man, do those scenes with the daughter draaaaaaaag. I've re-watched it about 3 times and forward through those parts every time, and it's about a half hour shorter, which is perfect.

Michael Lewis, who wrote the book it's based on, is one of my favorite writers. He also wrote The Blind Side and The Big Short, both excellent films and books. I really enjoyed Moneyball despite not being a baseball fan. I do like baseball movies because they tend to boil baseball down to the bits where something interesting happens. That someone could make a good movie about baseball statistics is mind boggling. Adam McCay is a genius.
