Movie Reviews

Not bad, just not so satisfying
I. Chiang | Silicon Valley, CA, USA | 01/25/2007
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Since it is in the series of Modern Marvels, I expect, at the beginning, to see the technology building the ball parks. It is, however, not what contents in this film. The main theme is the evolution of the ball parks from 19th century to the present. Of course, it is good to know why a ball park shapes like that, why is it situated at the outskirt of the city, and why it moves back to the heart of the city. Through the film, I just feel it misses something, perhaps many. For example, memorable moments, HOFers or teams with that park are worthy of mentioning.

Like many DVD's of the THC, I always feel the running time is too short and I just grab the surface. This film is no exception. Every time when I begin to feel interested in what they mention, it just finishes and jumps to another. I'd like to see this topic addressed again in another DVD.

"If you a a baseball fan and a history geek then you'll really like this. Growing up in the here and now I can appreciate all the stories my dad told me about watching the Dodgers "Where They Belong" in Brooklyn. It also helps understand how much baseball has grown over the last century. But with all the business that's involved now, to me it's still a game to love."
