I preface this by saying that I am a Yankee fan, and so I was predisposed to want to love the video. And the storytelling aspect of it is excellent. Despite that, I find this video almost unwatchable. My critique is of the filmmaking. MLB productions seems to think that there's a law against showing an entire baseball hit in a single shot, from ball hitting the bat to its landing. So a typical home run will look like this: 1) ball hits bat; 2) quick cut to pitcher; 3) quick cut to dugout reaction; 4) quick cut to crowd screaming; 5) quick cut to hitter watching it; 6) quick cut to ball just as it hits the seats. It seems like every single play in the entire video is cut this way -- even on strikeouts the path of the ball from pitchers hand to home plate on a is typically cut to into several smaller shots, so it's impossible to follow the path of the ball to the plate. By game 2 of the series, I found myself mentally screaming at the director to hold the shot, so I could actually see where the ball traveled as it came out of the pitcher's hand or off the bat. If you want to see highlights of the games themselves, I don't know where you turn, because you certainly don't get it here.
MLB productions has been using this style of filmmaking for a long time -- certainly going back to the late 1990s videos, and judging from the reviews here, I guess that's a popular way of doing it. But since I hadn't watched a World Series video in many years (yes, since the Yankees last won), I was hoping the style might have changed. I was very disappointed to find that, if anything, it was even worse than before.
Overall I give this three stars, because the pictures are beautiful, and the storytelling, narration, use of interviews, etc are indeed very good. I might try consuming it while listening to the sound only. But I just can't watch it without getting infuriated, because in a highlight video I want to see the BASEBALL, not the constant cuts of a director with no attention span.
