The hit movie Moneyball has been out since 2011, but former Oakland Athletics pitcher Mark Mulder had never seen it before. On Wednesday night, he decided to change that.

To make the experience better, he tweeted out his thoughts as he watched it for the first time.

It all apparently started because Mulder's former Oakland teammate Tim Hudson didn't believe he had never watched the movie:

Mulder explained why he hadn't seen the movie before last night:

After explaining himself, it was time to watch the film based on his former team.

He had a complaint about Moneyball almost immediately:

His tweets weren't all negative, however. Mulder did give Moneyball a good review: 

Mulder went 81-42 with a 3.92 ERA in five seasons with the A's, and he was named to two American League All-Star teams during that span.
