    How does Major League (1989) rank among baseball films? I'm looking through films that expire on Thai Netflix at the end of the month and this is one of them, so wonder if it's worth watching.
    As a Cleveland sports fan, I adore that movie. "Fuck you JoBu! I do it myself!"

    It still works today. For a comedy, that's pretty tough to do.

    Remember loving Willie Mayes Hayes, so they must've shot around that pretty well.

    Major League is good, but not as good as Bull Durham. Still it's worth a viewing for the awesome cast and the fun one liners.

    Genre, actor, inflation...... gone with most of the useful stuff hidden by a paywall.

    At least the fantasy league won't be impacted.

    Didn't they try a paywall a few years ago and it failed completely?

    I dunno, but even the paywall stuff has completely removed some of the features that made boxofficemojo fun. The earnings per actor, genre and sub genre appear to all be gone.

    Update on Disney, Fox, and rep houses:

    https://www.vulture.com/2019/10/disn...its-vault.html

    Looks like the worst has happened. Disney isn't allowing Fox movies to be shown at "for profit theaters." This includes back catalog stuff like "Alien," "Fight Club," "The Fly," and "The Princess Bride."

    They just disappeared all that shit into their vaults.

    I've seen all of those movies but viewing them on the big screen would have been nice. FUCK. Plus hurting independent theaters is a dick move.

    That's a trade I'm fine with. How many of you actually went to re-watch these in theaters? Be honest. I think I saw Alien and Terminator 2 back in college.. back before it wasn't available in 37 other places.

    If you haven't seen them, then this is complete faux outrage. Conglomerate or not.

    Yeah, but whether people can see Alien in a theater or not is a lesser concern of the issue. The bigger deal is that there are enough people who do want to see these movies in a theater that it's a significant contribution to the bottom line of these independent theaters and small chains. If you take that away, it just makes it that much harder for them to compete against Regal and AMC, which are not paragons of quality or variety. That's the crux of the story, not the actual availability of the movies. I for one am not cool with anything that makes the business harder for people who actually give a shit about the movie on the screen and the experience of the audience member after they've paid for their ticket.

    Fair point. Totally whiffed on that aspect.

    Counterpoint. It's the Walmart conundrum all over again. They are shutting down small business, but creating thousands of jobs in the process.

    Well if I was ONLY thinking about availability of a film, and not taking into account the other things wrong with this Disney move, then maybe, just maybe, my post wouldn't be so myopic. Just maybe.

    Okay, but I don't understand the general concept of you thinking that if we don't personally watch the films ourselves, we can't complain about them being taken away from others, that's all. Seems like an odd way of looking at things (if it doesn't personally affect you, then it is "faux outrage" and thus... not genuine? Dismissable? I don't know. That's what I wanted to clarify.). Anyway.....

    It's Walmart but I don't see any upside. Harms small businesses and harms Disney competitors. There's a bit in the article about Disney would rather have one more screen of Frozen II whether anyone actually buys a ticket or not just because it keeps Sony or Paramount from having a screen for their movie. I don't see job creation at the big chains as a result of this either.
