Short version. - :thumbs2:


If you want to see a very good movie for adults -- and by this I mean not about cartoon characters -- you should seek out Ford versus Ferrari. It's an entertaining and surprisingly well made movie.

I have enjoyed a superhero movie or three, but this is the best film I've seen in a long while. Admittedly, I am a race fan so that may bias me, but it's probably the best racing movie since 1971's Le Mans with Steve McQueen and it's much more entertaining. Your spouse, he or she, might even enjoy it.

It's a touch sad if you know the story of the 1966 race and what followed, but it's handled smarty.

Christian Bale deserves an award or two for this one.
I was talking to a friend this evening about this movie - it is on my watch list. A couple days ago, another friend [big time car guy and race fan] posted that he was watching the 2013 movie Rush. I had never seen it before, so I watched it last night. I thought it was excellent. It really captivated my attention.
