No doubt I will and I'm not a Baseball fan either, far from it. Like you I have nothing against it I just don't have much interest in it. Probably because in France where I grew up Baseball doesn't mean much. Ever since I watched the trailer a while ago I wanted to see it. If I'm not mistaken it had a somewhat limited run in theaters, but I'll buy the Bu-ray next week. Anything that involves Philip Seymour Hoffman is also worth watching imo.
Regarding the Social Network references above, it's funny cause I still haven't seen it, and I really don't want to, yet I'm a fan of Fincher. It was on TV some days ago so I saw a few scenes, I hate the characters, I have no sympathy for Eisenberg, I'm almost certain I will never enjoy that movie. Do I need to mention that I profoundly hate facebook too? And yes I know it's not 'a movie about facebook'... I just don't care about these people, whether it's in real life or in a movie... Anyways... Back to Moneyball, I'm also curious to see Hill's performance, apparently excellent as well. Up until now I was putting him in the same category as another Seth Rogen, sort of. From what I've read about the movie, I'm glad I was wrong.
