| Waiting for the Spike Lee bio of Jackie Robinson
Everybody knows that director Spike Lee wants to make a film about Jackie Robinson, and he's probably the best man to do it. While we are waiting, here we have an honest TV movie about the early days of Robinson un pro baseball. The film shows us the two greatest athletes of the Black Men Baseball league, Josh Gibson and Satchel Paige. I think it's a bit sad to portray these men with foolish minds, always tryin' to have some fun, because I'm sure that discipline was necessary to them to be so excellent on the field. Anyway, I think this movie is entertaining, well done and it can be a good filler while we're waiting for Mr. Spike Lee epic.
