Field of Dreams review

The film is about a vision that Ray Kinsella (Kevin Costner) needs to produce. I thoroughly enjoyed the flicks cinematography and screenplay. The only concern I have was Costner’s dry performance (I guess he and Keanu are similar) and the main reason how Terence Mann (James Earl Jones) got invited. Amy Madigan did justice to her character Annie Kinsella, she was funny, smart and logical. Ray Liotta played it straight as well becoming Joe Jackson. The pacing of the story was good, actors portrayed their characters well and the theme is just universal. Some thought provoking lines: Dr. Archibald Graham – “You know we just don't recognize the most significant moments of our lives while they're happening. Back then I thought, well, there'll be other days. I didn't realize that that was ...

Build it and they will come!!

"All his life Ray Kinsella was searching for his dreams, then one day his dreams came searching for him." That was the tag line in the preview I saw for Field of Dreams in the spring of 1989.
I remember thinking 'that looks interesting'. I had no idea that what seemed like an 'interesting' little film would end up being one of my all-time favorites. Field of Dreams is an amazing illogical, fantastic journey that never seems to be going where you think it is. Rather than get distracted in trying to figure out what is going to happen (like I often do upon first viewing), Field of Dreams is one film where I was just content to sit back in wonder waiting to find out where Ray Kinsella (Kevin Costner) and I were being led to. The film wastes no time with set up and supposition. "If you build ...

Good movie, but really slow

"Ray" (Kevin Costner) is an Iowan corn farmer who has regrets -- the biggest of which is fixing his relationship with his estranged father (Dwier Brown).

One day, "Ray" is in his cornfield, with his wife (Amy Madigan) and daughter (Gaby Hoffmann, in her motion picture debut) sitting on the deck of their home, he hears a voice come from out of nowhere say to him "if you build it, he will come."

After some thought on what the voice meant, he begins to believe that he has to tear down part of his cornfield and build a regulation baseball field. This causes what can only be described as the ghost of disgraced baseball legend "'Shoeless' Joe Jackson" (Ray Liotta), as well as other deceased players to come play on that field.

He then goes on a journey that takes him across the count...

Review - Field of Dreams (1989)

After a voice told Ray Kinsella (Kevin Costner) to “build it and he will come,” he decided he better. As the voice continues to beckon him, he tries to figure out what he’s supposed to do in “Field of Dreams.”

Here’s an interesting one to talk about. I want to say that it’s “timeless,” but it probably will seem dated a little further down the road. The music is particularly specific from the time it was made, and the factual accuracies are hard to ignore. Then again, I guess time periods have nothing to do with whether a movie is “timeless” or not, but I guess we’ll see.

I really enjoyed this movie. It has a lot of heart and, even though I’m not a fan of baseball, I grew a new love for the game. The acting is really great, especially from Gaby Hoffman (as Karin Kinsella), who at age...

If you build it...

A movie that has been appreciated more over time, Field of Dreams tells the Capra-like tale of Ray Kinsella, who hears a mysterious voice to build a baseball field so the banned Shoeless Joe Jackson can return and play (along with the other members of the Black Sox Scandal). Subsequent interactions include tracking down a reclusive writer and young ball player looking for his chance to play. While baseball serves as the visual, deep down it serves as a metaphor between fathers and sons, the one game that has bonded them for decades. Ray spends time in the film trying to prove he's not his father but his regret at their failed relationship is what pulls at him more. Ray's building of the field symbolizes the ways he tries to make amends with his deceased father, and it results in an em...
