Random Movie Mention: “GAME 6” (2005)

Y’all Know I’m Always Game For A Good Baseball Movie.

GAME 6

…Starring…

MICHAEL KEATON

GRIFFIN DUNNE

…And…

ROBERT DOWNEY JR.

…However…

…Is A Bit Different From What I’m Used To.

And That’s Not Necessarily A Bad Thing.

I Do So Enjoy It When Someone Shakes-Up The Mold Of What One Might Be Expecting…

…Delivering Something Quirky…

…Something Off-Beat…

…Something Pretty Damned Original.

MICHAEL KEATON

…Is A Playwright.

His Latest Show Is Just Opening On BROADWAY…

…And It Just So Happens To Be Opening The Week Of The 1986 WORLD SERIES!

The 1986 WORLD SERIES Was A Hard-Fought Battle Between…

The NEW YORK METS

…And…

The BOSTON RED SOX

…And The Events of This Film Take Place The Day/Night Of…

…Yep…

GAME 6

…Which Was The Pivotal Game Of The Entire Series!

KEATON‘s Character “NICKY ROGAN” Is A Die-Hard Fan Of The RED SOX

…And He’s Obsessing A Bit.

The RED SOX Appear To Be On The Brink Of Finally Winning The WORLD SERIES For The First Time Since 1918…

…But “NICKY” Can’t Help But Feel Something Horrid Is Going To Happen…

…Both To His RED SOX And His New Play.

He Expects His SOX To Lose.

He Expects His Play To Be Lampooned And Fail.

He’s Just Not A Positive Thinker, To Say The Least.

We Already Know The SOX Would Go On To Lose GAME 6 Of The WORLD SERIES…

(and eventually the 7TH Game, also)

…But What’s Going To Happen With His Play???

I Suppose You’re Just Going To Have To Watch The Flick To Find Out!!!

😉

While…

GAME 6

…Is Not My Favorite Baseball-Themed Flick…

…It Really Was A Joy To Kick-It-Back And Watch It.

As I Said Before…

…It’s Quirky…

…It’s Off-Beat…

…And It’s Pretty Damned Original.

For Fans Of Flicks That Try To Turn A Classic Subject/Theme Into Something NEW…

…I Can Easily Recommend This Little Number.

Having Always Been A Major League Fan Of…

MICHAEL KEATON

(still my favorite BATMAN ever)

…I Went Into This Flick Not Knowing What To Think/Expect, But I Was Hopeful.

Once It Was Over…

…I Gave It A Day…

…Then I Watched It Again.

The Repeat Viewing Only Confirmed To Me What I’d Originally Thought.

I LIKED IT…

…And…

…I’D WATCH IT AGAIN!!!

.Period.

What More Could I Ask For, Ya Know?!?

The Flick Did What It Was Supposed To Do.

That’s Good Enough For ME.

Is That Good Enough For YOU, Also?!?

I Should Hope So!!!
