Default 'Field of Dreams' - High-Def Digest Review

David Krauss has reviewed 'Field of Dreams.' He must admit, he's just
not a fan. This Blu-ray failed to win his heart as well, with mediocre
video and audio (with the occasional highlights), and some nice
extras, all in standard definition. This one is for the fans out
there.

'Field of Dreams,' the top man-cry movie of all time.
Really? Guess I'm kinda heartless since I've never come remotely close to this the several times I've seen it.

"Field of Dreams" is in my top 5 movies ever. I love it. The ending always gives me chills.

But, my relationship with my father was never great and I have a passion for baseball. So, the ending for me is a culmination of what I would love to have the chance to do. Nothing cosmic, groundbreaking, or deep....just play catch with my dad in a moment of silence. Just enjoy each others company without all the baggage from the past.

I have this on HD-DVD so I won't be buying it again, but it's a 5 star film for me. The transfer was passable....better than the SD version....but that goes without saying. Freddy

Sorry to hear that the transfer isn't top notch the movie really deserves it, one of the classics IMO.

It helps to be dead on the inside

Just kidding, but yeah, I'm on the same boat.

It has gotten me this far

Actually, I recently confirmed that I'm not completely dead on the inside as evidenced by the water works that resulted from watching Marley and Me.

Typical Krauss review... two-and-a-half stars for Field of Dreams but I bet he gives 5 stars to Che.

Field of Dreams is one of my all-time favorites. Chokes me up every time and I've seen it at least two-dozen times. I guess the biggest reason it gets to me is because my dad abandoned my mom and the four kids and ran off with another woman when I was 6 years old. But that's just a guess.
