If you want to really learn the spirit of the movie, visit the ballfield in Dyersville, Iowa. I have been there twice, once when there was a cornfield on the edge of the outfield. When someone walks out of the corn when you are at the right angle, it has the same spooky look as in the movie.

One of my favorites. It has so much more going for it than just being a sports movie.

How many men get to pursue their dreams? "Field of Dreams" is one man's quest to realize his one big moment. However, unlike most sports movies, the main character (Kevin Costner) isn't a star athlete, but rather a farmer who puts his faith in a mysterious voice from above. He goes around the country trying to figure out the connection between baseball and life - until he realizes it was all within himself. For sheer originality and creativity, the film is an easy 5-stars. The movie keeps you guessing …

This ranks as one of my favorite movies of all time. You don't have to be a baseball fan to appreciate the nostalgia and warm heartedness this movie brings to the big screen - well little screen in the case of the DVD.

. . .baseball movie of all time.I saw this movie in the theatres back when it was first released (and nominated for the Academy Award). I now own it (and have for years) and re-watch it periodically.The movie succeeds on a number of levels. First, it shows great love and respect for the game of baseball -- the National Pastime. (Yes, I enjoy other sports as well -- but there is something very nearly religious about baseball -- and this shines through in the movie). Second, the cast is wonderful. …

Pros: heart-warming, Costner LOOKS good     Cons: cheesy, Costner's acting, cliches galore     I re-watched this movie the other night, and despite the fact that certain lines were so cliched that I wanted to groan out loud, I still found it to be a heart-warming film.      In other words, I am conflicted about how to rate "Field of Dreams." It is cheesy, Costner's acting is weak, the story is predictable, but there is a certain …
