    Amen...how true that speech is...as for the films, love'em dearly. but for
    different reasons..i guess IF I had to make a choice..it'll be the natural.


    two of my fave scenes..were when hobbs snapped outta that slump
    in chicago, by driving the ball into that massive clock....

    the other is only a scene men could understand...when the Knights were
    losing big time...the third sacker takes a hard grounder to the nuts..and
    hits the ground...the looks of everyone is so wild...my then wife, can't
    exactly understand how painful that is....jeez...ouch....


    as for other films...lots of good ones..as well as really BAD ones.

    Another for the Natural... easily. Like FOD too, and have been to the site, but the Natural takes it.

    Field of Dreams is the best baseball movie ever, IMO.

    The novel version of "The Natural" is fantastic, because the ending is completely different than that of the movie. As far as the movies go, Field of Dreams is better.

    I enjoy Field of Dreams, sentimentality and all. It's written and plays like an extended Twilight Zone episode; Rod Serling wrote in the same style...and I don't mind the nostalgia, political, and fantasy factors. James Horner's music was perfect as well.

    The Natural felt somewhat disjointed; a compelling, but strange adaptation of Malamud's book which simply didn't resonate the way I would have liked.

    Both are fantastic films. Last summer I took my father and my son (13) to the FOD movie site. We had the place to ourselfs. Played catch, hit BP, ran the bases and took photos. On the plan ride out we watched the movie, and my dad cried. Then drove to a cubbies game for the weekend. One of the greatest trips of our lives. Go do it!

    Field of Dreams, just because it was one of the few movies that surpassed the book, as Captain said. The Natural (the literature version) was better than both FOD's and the movie The Natural. But the movie FOD, was better than Shoeless Joe and The Natural (movie version).

    Wow, that confused me just typing it.

    I enjoyed both movies very much but the movie Field of Dreams is very different than the book Shoeless Joe Comes To Iowa......

    Field of Dreams is the one movie that I felt was better than the book. It's been a long time since I have seen The Natural, so I'll pick FOD.

    Thanks!

    Wait....

    You meant that as a put-down, didn't you??? :grouchy

    Though I do agree with what you were implying. It does strike me as odd that out of all the men in the world...heck, even just all the male actors in the world...they couldn't have found ONE who could actually throw?

    The Natural by a wide margin for me. As I said in the other thread, The Natural is my all-time favorite movie ever. I love the scene when Hobbs hits the homerun into the lights to win the penate and all the other lights explode, and sparks fall by his feet as he rounds the bases. Love everything about the movie.

    I like Field of Dreams, but personally I think it gets overated by alot of people.
