In more ways than one, I didn’t quite know what to expect going into Bennett Miller’s 2011 film Moneyball. For starters, this particular movie happened to be the first I watched from the press row at a screening so I was a little nervous-in-a-good-way to check into the film knowing that I was “officially” reviewing it. On the other hand, I’m not a very big baseball fan. I enjoy going to games but I usually find the sport to be boring if I’m just watching it from my couch. So I was excited and uneasy at the same time. But as it turned out, Moneyball wound up being one of my favorite films of that year. That made this movie for an easy pick for Todd/Forgotten Films’ Big League Blogathon. Take a look at my 5 Favorite Things about the movie.
