Haunting. Uplifting. Somber. Film needs more like this....

The emotional core of this film is driven by the haunting and score of James Horner, by the sincerity of Costner as Ray Kinsella, and the startling clarity of the story Alden Robinson crafts onto screen -- A man that himself has no inkling of belief in the likes of "the voice", of ghosts or the supernatural. Which you wouldn't know it to watch this film that renders itself timeless even as of 2018, only 19 years later.

Featuring great supporting performances by Amy Madigan, Ray Liotta, James Earl Jones and the late Burt Lancaster as 'Doc "Moonlight" Graham '. Quite simply Phil Alden Robinson's best picture to date, and perhaps in any career to come!

We follow Ray Kinsella (Costner) as he takes a leap of faith in the aftermath of a series of existential crisis of his own imagination, to first build a baseball diamond on his rich farmland. But the journey only begins there... To this we are taken on a road trip down memory lane (metaphorically and physically) in his search for answers. Why did the voice choose him?

This call to action builds and eventually culminates in one of the most emotional and crushingly heartbreaking pay-offs in movie history. Sons and fathers. Fathers and sons. That is the underpinning of what this movie is really about. Family. Regret. Passing (death) and the path to redemption all set against America's greatest passtime; Baseball.

Full of quaint and funny moments, it is two parts drama, one part comedy and a helping of adventure to connect it all. Look for a stellar performance by James Earl Jones and a speech that should have your hair standing on end, whether you like the sport or not!

Field of Dreams

Short and Simple Review by WubsTheFadger

The acting throughout the film is great. Kevin Costner does a great job at portraying a man in need of answers. James Earl Jones also does a fantastic job. His character is likable and his end scene put a childlike smile on my face. Ray Liotta gives a great performance as well. Amy Madigan, who plays Costner's wife, does a good job but can be annoying at times. Even though this movie is old, it still holds up in regards to the acting.

The Iowa landscape is beautiful. The corn fields and baseball fields are amazing to look at.

The story is heartfelt, enjoyable, and well paced. Towards the end, I felt a sort of childlike happiness and joy that only a few films have given me. The ending is very emotional and touching. The film does leave some unanswered questions though. Most notably: Where did the "voice" come from? And what is beyond the corn field?

Pros: Great performances by Kevin Costner, James Earl Jones, and Ray Liotta, amazing scenery, heartfelt and touching story, and a very emotional ending

Cons: Amy Madigan's character is sometimes annoying and some unanswered plot questions

Overall Rating: 8.5

P.S. This film is an American classic. It has baseball, family, and childlike innocence and joy. It is a must watch for baseball and heartfelt movie fans.

I"d better be getting home . Alicia will think i have a girlfriend!"

Everybody at one time comes this close to their dreams and figure they will have another chance or another day to capture that dream. But that day may never come.This movie hits me personally on all levels. My love of baseball. My love of history and most importantly my love of family. Vividly photographed in rural Iowa accompanied by a beautiful music score Ray Kinsella (Kevin Costner) hears a voice that inspires him to build a baseball field removing some valuable acreage to the confusion of neighboring farmers. Ray who claims that her never did anything so spontaneous in his entire life, follows the voice of "If you build it he will come."Ray Constructs a ball field explaining to his young daughter Karin (Gabby Hoffman)about the 1919 White Sox scandal and the plight of their star player "Shoeless" Joe Jackson. Wife Annie (Amy Madigan) goes along with her husband on this construction. Time goes by then a visit from "Shoeless Joe Jackson (Ray Liotta) in full 1919 White Sox attire. A book Banning meeting awakens the idea of Ray to travel to Boston to find Terence Mann, popular fictitious writer, (James Earl Jones). Ray with a bit of trouble takes Mr. Mann to a Red Sox game. A name appears on the scoreboard. Ray takes off for Minnesota with Terence Mann in tow in search of Archie "Moonlight" Graham played by well renown actor Burt Lancaster. As I stated earlier My love of History with all the old time ball players coming to life surrounded by a cornfield hearing Doc Graham recounting his one chance in the majors many decades ago. Doc Graham tags along as a youth in the form of (James Whaley). When everyone arrives back at the farm The bank threatens to foreclose on the farm if Ray signs the papers from his brother-in-law Mark, (Timothy Busfield). More miracles to follow in this love of baseball and family. I personally enjoyed Terence Mann's moving speech about the people will come to see the game. One of my favorite scenes is the night game showing the old time players throwing the ball around to lazy ragtime music only James Horner could provide. I understand why this movie didn't win an Academy Award. You have to have the love of baseball to truly appreciate this movie.In this fast paced short attention spanned environment newer generations find baseball a bit slow and boring. To me Baseball is like a fine glass of vintage to be savored on a warm summer night. Not rushed or spoiled. Another thing to mention about this cathartic tale is the final crescendo of emotion as Ray realizes why he went through this journey. As I watch the final scene I think to myself and ponder that someday I'll travel to Iowa and that ball field among-st the corn and wait to see my Paternal grandfather enter the playing field for a catch.
