(500) Films of Empire - Day 225

260 - Field Of Dreams - 3 stars
What was most admirable about this film was its efficiency.
Quick five minute voiceover to introduce the main character Ray Kinsella and his backstory then boom, straight away... "If you build it, he will come".
No 15 minute 'building a baseball field' montage with cheesy 80's music, its just done.
Then ghostly baseball players turn up to use the field.
Is any explanation ever offered as to why this is happening? No. You'll just have to buy into it or not.
A heart-warming film with daddy issues that might not ever make my top ten list but I certainly wouldn't switch it off if it ever came on the TV.
Was also nice to actually see James Earl Jones in a film rather than just hear his voice!

Days remaining - 140 Films remaining - 170
