Major League: Back to the Minors (1998) (BLU-RAY REVIEW)
DIRECTED BY: John Warren
Starring: Scott Bakula, Corbin Bernsen, Dennis Haysbert
RATED: PG/REGION O/1:85/1080P/NUMBER OF DISCS 1
AVAILABLE FROM Sony Pictures

After Roger Dorn, who owns the Minnesota Twins and the minor-league South Carolina Buzz, talks retiring minor-league player Gus Cantrell into managing the bad-news Buzz, Gus takes his underdog team toward an eventual confrontation with the powerful champs, the Twins. In addition to Dorn, the other series characters making a return are Taka Tanakia and Pedro Cerrono.

Well, not all the Major League movies can be great as Major League: Back to the Majors shows us. Despite the lower quality, however, it proves you can still sorta be solid. So our good pal Roger Dorn is now retired and running a minor league team called The Buzz. On his team, he has a few second-hand characters from the last movie like the Vood-Doo man Pedro Cerrono and the funny Taka Tanakia. He has some new funny characters but the main guy here is a new character played by Scott Bakula. It’s your typical thing you’ve come to look for here with the team struggling to get along and win all the while players have some social life troubles to go along with it. It’s funny here and you will want to finish it while watching but it terribly lacks that re-watch value that the previous two movies had.

That doesn’t mean this one doesn’t have anything to offer. It is a funny look at the minor leagues of MLB and it does get more than a few laughs out of me along the way. I liked the characters we have but I also miss the ones we don’t have, but as you know when you get into the straight to video sequels in movie franchises you are lucky if you even have a few characters there and while it might not be the ones we really want, we do have a few here. On a plus side, the Blu-ray does at least look better than part two did in HD. We don’t have any extras but we’ll just take the transfer as a win. The movie ends up being a pop-corn flick but doesn’t have much more going for it other than being a good “once over”.
