42 was much better than I was expecting it to be. Harrison Ford really sunk into his character and the movie never felt to reverent to the man and gave time and focus to those around him. It also revealed a world that's hard to imagine even though it was only a handful of decades before. So maybe it wasn't completely a baseball movie but what it did have to portray was much more important.
The film about the man who crashed the color barrier in baseball is now out to own. While it wasn't an instant classic this was a great movie about the legendary Jackie Robinson. It's rare that a baseball player's actions off the field are more important than those on. Robinson was truly a man who was bigger than the game itself.
|2. Evil Dead|
This remake of the horror classic is now out to own. While not picking up the cult status of the original three films this was received mostly positively. It can't be easy to take something almost everyone loves and make it your own while also pleasing everyone else.
|3. Regular Show|
Seasons one and two are now available on Blu-Ray. This show came onto my radar about the same time as Chowder and Adventure Time and quickly got lumped into the same over-hyped modern cartoon category in my head. Luckily Regular Show is much better than that and should be checked out and tried like a fine wine or new sandwich shop.
