Today being July 15, 2014, the Major League All Star Game is being played. Which makes me think of All Star Baseball Movies like Field of Dreams. I love the review of April 3, 2011 by BDS206 which is below. She captures the essence of the movie perfectly. Where ever you are BDS206 my thanks for a well done review of a deserving movie. I gave the movie Five Stars. Any chance in the meantime you would consider adding another star? I know you will be fair. I am comparing Field of Dreams to other baseball movies and this comes to the top of the list. As a side note, 29 KCLS patrons are waiting in line for one of five copies in the system. That shows me that Field of Dreams is still well remembered!

Very well done movie. A pleasure to watch. I would recommend this movie for all to see. No fast forwarding on this one. No falling asleep on this DVD!!!!!

An Iowa corn farmer, hearing voices, interprets them as a command to build a baseball diamond in his fields; he does, and the Chicago Black Sox come.

"If you build it, he will come." is the quote most remembered about this film. Well I say "If you watch it, you will cheer." Kevin Costner did 5 sports themed movies. This is my most favorite, and I was an extra in one of the others, For Love of the Game.

My 10-year-old boy is a baseball lover. He loves the movie so much and is pursuing his baseball dream at the same time.

Every human breed dreams for a chance at anything in life, in this case at a lost chances in baseball, family reconciliation, healing old wounds & making past wrongs,,,, RIGHT.

Love of baseball is the central theme, but the movie is not about baseball. It is about being true to one's nature. It is about second chances, and ultimately is about redemption. I highly recommend this movie, it would be great for a family movie night.

Field of Dreams is a whimsical fable - many people don't "get" this movie so be prepared for something a bit different.
