Better Than Baseball now online

Joey MCgarry just posted up his and Todd's masterstroke "Better than Baseball". Quoting Monique (Joey's sister): "Better than Baseball is a film which celebrates the human body. The obvious example is of course rollerblading. I can't even jump two inches off the ground on rollerblades. Actually, I can't even stop properly. So to me, I am astounded by what the body is able to achieve. Especially the slow motion shots. It's like bloody ballet. In contrast with the feats of these rollerbladers, they also show extremely normal, everyday actions (such as eating, drinking, sleeping, driving etc). These are necessities to us all, and the way they are placed in the film is priceless. Life's basic needs are shown here....because to these young men, rollerblading is a necessity of life....just like eating or sleeping. I also enjoy the dozens of odd and hilarious facial expressions throughout the movie. This goes along with the intentional inclusion of editing glitches to demonstrate that we are in fact only human. However, it balances nicely with the grandiose of the rest of the film."... Read More...
