This is the most realistic documentary ever made about baseball in baseball history. The subject matter is unbelievable and hard to ignore. The characters are all real, which is what we should be looking for. The interviews and the different images are all incredible and from the first one to the last one, you have no idea who is who. The amount of time spent on the subject matter was amazing. As for the baseball itself, it is an amazing game and this documentary brings you inside the game to really understand it. If you are looking for something in the ballpark, this is the best documentary you can find. This is a real baseball documentary with real interviews, from the ballplayers to the major leaguers and everyone in between. It's a great film, without a doubt.

This is an amazing film. It's not something that you need to have seen in order to understand. As a former gamer, I can relate to the gamers and video game characters portrayed in the movie. It's important to note that I am not a gamer. I played games for years as a kid, and have no particular love for them. However, I have no problem with gamers who do what they do to entertain themselves. I, too, am a gamer and am not embarrassed to admit it. I have enjoyed playing video games since I was six years old. However, this movie is a huge eye opener for me. I watched it a few days ago and it was very compelling. I was overwhelmed by the amount of information the movie offered and it was extremely entertaining. As for the game, I understand it was only an hour and a half, but it still made me cry. The gameplay is flawless and believable, with all the details and dialog. The movie makers did a great job in keeping me involved. I am very curious to see what they will do next with this project.

For any supporter of the German baseball team, this documentary is a must see. The film is a wonderful look at the history of the team and the all-star game at the time, and it shows how much the players cared about their teammates. I also enjoyed the fact that the filmmakers don't just focus on the current baseball season, but also take a look at what the team was like in the past, and what they were like when they were young. I was really impressed by this film, and I hope the filmmakers continue making more films like this.

Yes it was a big documentary, but also one of the best documentaries I have seen in a long time. I felt every moment of the documentary was worth watching, from the moment it started till the moment it finished. I think this documentary did a great job at focusing on all the different points, for the various reasons that are important for anybody. Even if the "Star Wars" was not a part of this documentary, it still had a huge influence on it. I think, in a sense, it is still the perfect example of an accurate documentary on the "Star Wars" saga, even if I did not like it. It was a great work from a great director, director, writer, producer, etc. etc. It was a great job, and I have to give the credit to all involved in it. Without it, the whole thing wouldn't have been half as good. The film is a must see for anyone that loves movies or loves documentaries. Go see it. You won't regret it. Go see it now!

I am a Jets fan and so I got this movie as a way of seeing their season. I was not disappointed! I loved how everything connected and the feel of being there. I also liked how it was all so different from each other. I love the soundtrack. I loved the part when the doctor was talking to the kids about the movie. I love the storyline! It was more than just the actual game, it was like an experience, an experience that you don't get anymore. I loved the end. The movie is so powerful and I wish more people would see it. I loved it so much, it was very entertaining!

Told in a great combination of normal British accents, conversational American English, and typical US acting styles, this documentary follows three American baseball players as they go through a world tour. Their story will leave you speechless. The film does not pretend to be an original, or even great documentary, but it's a very good one. It's one of the best I've seen in the last few years. Not only is it well-made, but it's also very well-acted and contains some of the best baseball quotes I've ever heard. In my mind, I can't think of a better baseball documentary I've ever seen.

I was lucky enough to catch this documentary at a screening in Minneapolis. I was absolutely shocked to hear about the background and the personal story behind this fascinating film. This is truly a must see for all hockey fans and there are some great behind the scenes footage in the film. The movie is light hearted with the main characters being true to life. The film will definitely give you a bit of a different perspective on the game. I highly recommend watching this film if you are a hockey fan. If you are a hockey fan you will love this film.

Just got home from this documentary. There are many interesting facts about baseball's inception and inception of baseball, and I will try to get my hands on the book it was adapted from. The central topic is the origin of baseball in America. The middle-aged gentleman (Robinson) talks about the fact that it was the German who started the sport in the mid-1800s. It was really just a relatively minor thing that German immigrants brought to America. He goes on to explain how baseball was born as an American pastime. He explains that a German immigrant named Carl Neubauer, who came to America with the promise that he would bring baseball to America, actually brought a pro team to America. The movie, which is longer than the book, includes interviews with baseball legends and is narrated by Robinson. It is not a documentary and is not like "Baseball Hall of Fame." It is one man's take on the subject and his personal opinions. But the movie, which covers an astounding amount of baseball history, is a must see for baseball fans. There is no more entertaining sports movie.

I've been a fan of this documentary for about a year, but I've never been able to find the time to watch it. Finally, I was able to put it on DVD and watch it. It's a great documentary, but you have to be willing to put yourself in the shoes of the main characters to understand it. They are all really good, and this movie is really about the war in Colombia. I would recommend watching this film, but if you're in the mood for some fast food, you might want to pass. The story is about a group of American diplomats who were sent to Colombia to try to broker a peace agreement between the country's government and rebel groups. They were trying to bring peace to the country. They were doing it in a time of war. It's a very controversial subject. I would recommend it to anyone who is interested in the subject. It's not a movie about a war, and it's not a documentary about the war. It's about people who were trying to bring peace to a country that was already suffering from a civil war. I also would recommend the documentary "The Hole" to anyone interested in the subject. It's a documentary about a man who is obsessed with the war in Iraq, but he's only interested in the war in Colombia. I would recommend it to anyone who has a strong interest in the subject.

This movie is absolutely brilliant. It's a must see for anybody who is a baseball fan. I think this movie is just about the most awesome thing I've ever seen on the big screen. I would highly recommend it to anyone, especially baseball fans.

I wish that more movies could be made as it does give a unique perspective on a country and how much they are affected by global media. I was born and raised in Washington DC, but I have visited a few times as a child and have always felt like I lived in a small town with many hidden secrets. I was also a very strong supporter of the Carter administration and the modern university. It's nice to know that my daughter was not brain damaged as some of the news reports seem to say. This movie is not about the movies but about the story itself. My daughter and I will remember this movie long after we are gone.

I am a fan of the movie and the book. I am really surprised at the low score. I would like to see a real "ghostbusters" movie. I would also like to see the movie with a real ghostbusters cast and crew. I have read the book and am enjoying it as I go. I would also like to see a real "Pineapple Express" movie. I would like to see the movie with the real cast and crew. The movie is good and worth watching. I have seen many reviews here saying that it is not a movie, but what it is, it is a good movie. So the rating is not the movie, but the movie is a good movie.
