  1. On the surface, Field of Dreams is about the loss of American innocence and the attempt to find healing

    and wholeness: Kevin Costner plays a baby boomer who, like many of that era, fell out of favour with his

    father through the course of the turbulent 60s. Costner marries a fellow 60s student traveller and finds

    himself in a sort of self-imposed exile as a farmer in rural Iowa. One day, as he is in his corn field, he hears

    a voice that tells him to Build it and he will come. Costner eventually intuits that this mysterious voice and

    instruction is connected to he and his father’s never having resolved their growing apart. Costner then

    determines that what he is supposed to do is build a baseball field in his corn field and his father’s favourite

    player, Shoeless Joe Jackson, will appear. On the surface, Jackson, a member of the White Sox team that

    threw a world series, represents the tie and bond between father and son and serves as a source of the

    re-discovery of what is elemental and good about America as supposedly manifested in baseball. Here,

    however, is where the cryptocracy of Hollywood uses subtle symbolic archetypal imagery to affect a more

    sinister processing of the Societal Mind. The set-up begins with a loss of innocence, a Fall, where the son

    is alienated from the Father. Shoeless Joe Jackson, describe in the movie as the most elegant and dazzling

    player, is essentially Lucifer, a favoured angel that falls and eventually causes a rupture between God and

    Mankind. In Hollywood gnostic — kaballistic — masonic manipulation, however, Shoeless Joe is unjustly

    condemned. After Costner builds his field and Shoeless Joe arrives, played by Roy Liotta, he tells Costner

    there are more players coming, since he represents only one player of a team of nine. This number is roughly

    one third of a baseball team, one third being the percentage of angels in Heaven that fell with Lucifer

    according to the Holy tradition of the Church. The townspeople consider Costner crazy since only he and

    his family can see the players out on the field, indicating the fact that the others have not yet been initiated.

    At this point, Costner receives another message which takes him in a search for a J.D. Salingeresque figure

    who wrote brillant, mind-expanding novels in the 60s but has since fallen silent. This character is played

    by James Earl Jones which provides an alchemical element of black and white to the set-up. Here, Jones

    would seem to be the magus who will provide the alchemical initiation for the New Age. Once back home,

    as foretold by the original voice and Jones’ character toward the end, masses of people turn off the highway

    running by Costner’s rural farm to see the Black Sox play again. Build it and he will come sounds like a

    recipe for building the political spiritual order necessary for the appearance of the fallen and their human agent

    as prophesied in Daniel and Revelation. The Hollywood cryptocracy has once again produced a coded

    movie that at its core slanders the Truth of the Gospel of Christ by a subtle means of pyschological processing

    whereby people open themselves up to this false New Age and its promises.

  2. Oh, Come On! A guy who builds a ballpark in a corn field because voices told him to should be locked up, not celebrated! Especially if he builds it for ghosts to play on. Come on! That’s so stupid. And then at the end where everybody’s coming from miles around to watch a game they can’t even see? That makes no sense at all! And I don’t like movies that make Christians look like jerks.

    Why couldn’t Kevin Costner just make Bull Durham 2? That would have been much better.

    Bull Durham was a good movie.

  3. It’s a Costner movie so don’t expect great acting

    Stupid plot. Kill crops for a stupid baseball field. Think of the families or starving children in some stupid African country those crops would have fed.

    Who cares about some ghost that wants to play baseball. Waste of time. If u like Feel Good moveis that don’t make sense and lose any sense of reality and have and hour or 2 to waste, see this film now!

    Stupid movie

  4. This movie was so stupid, I was mad at myself for wasting 2 hours of my life, that I can’t get back, oh this movie is just so bad, I can’t fit all the horrible things about it. Field Of Dreams just is every bad cliche of every bad film all rolled up onto one pitifully cliched film. AWFUL, I think this is right up there as one of the worst filsm of all time, but unlike the other worst films of all time, which most have some camp value, thsi just plain stinks.

  5. Allright I’ve read almost every review about this movie, and I must say I’m certainly surprised about how many good reviews it got. I practically fell asleep during this movie, thats how dumb and boring it was! This is one of those movies you watch that starts out slow, but like a fool you just keep watching hoping it will get better. Well I must say it did not get better it only got worse. The reason I even gave it two stars is because it had Kevin Costner in it. If your looking for a good movie you can look elsewhere. It was certainly a waste of my time. Of course thats my opinion. Like I said there were alot of people that gave this movie 5 stars.
