My review : The problem with quite a lot of biopics is how they fall under the same arc of failure, failure and success, and though its usually how we reach that arc, its the predictability that chains Moneyball down to the ground. Everything surrounding that problem though is perfect, the performances provide so much depth to each of these characters, and though some prove shallow, they’re relatively interesting and fresh nontheless. What makes Moneyball so perplexing to me is that these heavy mathematical scenes have become the most captivating and mesmerizing scenes in the film, that truly blow my mind, and i’m in bias as I hate nothing more then the arts of mathematics. There is a double bias though as these scenes make usage of one of my favorite post rock songs and band of all time This Will Destroy You, whom have become the perfect choice for this film. I think there is a lot to love, a lot to adore even, despite its vastly predictable plotting and unsurprisingly standard type characterization. 80/100
