"If you build it, he will come." That's the ethereal message that inspires Iowa farmer Ray Kinsella (Kevin Costner) to construct a baseball diamond in the middle of his cornfield. At first, "he" seems to be the ghost of disgraced ballplayer Shoeless Joe Jackson (Ray Liotta), who materializes on the ballfield and plays a few games with the awestruck Ray. But as the weeks go by, Ray receives several other messages from a disembodied voice, one of which is "Ease his pain." He realizes that his ballfield has been divinely ordained to give a second chance to people who have sacrificed certain valuable aspects of their lives. One of these folks is Salingeresque writer Terence Mann (James Earl Jones), whom Ray kidnaps and takes to a ball game and then to his farm. Another is Doc Graham (Burt Lancaster), a beloved general practitioner who gave up a burgeoning baseball career in favor of medicine. The final "second-chancer" turns out to be much closer to Ray. That "magical" field in Dyersville, Iowa still draws thousands of baseball-happy tourists each year.~Hal Erickson

I am a movie buff, and I have a library of movies beginning with VHF tapes and DVDS.This particular movie is one of my many favorites, so naturally I had to purchase it on BLUE RAY to replace the VHF one (I didn’t get rid of the older version).
I would recommend this to a friend
Rating 5 out of 5 stars with 1 review
In 4K. Makes it worth it just for that.
I always did love this movie. It's never looked better. The Steel Book artwork on the front and back make it worth it all its own. The film in 4K will naturally show off the graininess of the 35mm filmstock but the movie really pops in that format. The sound is also quite good, or it just might be because the late James Horner's soundtrack is so haunting a piece.
Always wanted to own this , and when I saw it was being released on 4K and the SteelBook, I figured it was about time. The 4K looks great and they did a wonderful job on the transfer. This never looked better!
Movie is alright.
HDR is always a great picture on an OLED panel.
DTSX was disappointedly weak with mostly front stage channels active & was really low. Played on an Oppo through a 11.2 (7.2.4)
Over priced for an old title.
Great classic 1980s film. We moved to Iowa and the day the cable set up was installed this was the first movie to pop on TV. I decided to buy this version. Great movie about the human dimension of life.
I cry every time I watch this movie and I’ve seen it at least 20 times! I love how it looks on 4K and I absolutely love this collectible steel book that it comes in. Some of my fondest childhood memories include going to my dad’s baseball games and then his Fastpitch softball games when he was done playing baseball and then when he was done playing softball he would always make time to go out in the front yard and have a catch with me when he got home from work. This movie means so much to me!
Even though this movie is over 30 years now the film technicians did a GREAT job producing this in 4K Ultra HD. The colors are vivid, the nighttime scenes are beyond compare. The musical score is simple but so effective. It'a a great movie that has stood the test of time. And it looks, and sounds better than ever!
