    Film Ford v Ferrari Le mans 66

    So Come on, Anyone seen it? Matt Damon Christian Bale, I watched it for the first time a couple of days ago. Now I know its not a 100% Accurate, but I still thought it was a hell of a good film. I really enjoyed it

    What was your thoughts?

    Now that sounds like a great idea.

    My wife and I saw the movie and thought it was excellent. We also watched the two film/documentaries on Netflix. I came away with a whole new appreciation for Carrol Shelby. I had always thought of him as a self promoter. He was actually a very accomplished racer, until heart issues ended his career. He also put alot on the line personally to help out Ford with their race program.

    Great flick, I thought Christian Bale was great, as was the whole case. Had a real "Mad Men" fee to it as well!

    We watched it as a family, and even the 'non-car' types enjoyed the movie. I did watch the documentary things on Netflix / Amazon prior, so I knew a bit more going in. I rarely watch a movie twice, but this one might be an exception. A previous comment said it well ... The Ford vs Ford element was as interesting as the Ford vs Ferrari dynamic.

    I found the movie pretty great, too. Also, I read the book on which the movie is based afterwards, great read and you get to see where the movie was not so accurate.

    Great, thank you for reminding me of that movie. I couldn't go to the theater to see that movie. Now there's a lot of work to do and I forgot. I will definitely see it today!

    I have just got the DVD and enjoyed a Le mans "Double" evening with "Le mans 66" followed by the Steve Mcqueen "Le mans" movie.
    Several beers were also consumed while watching

    Well done, you combined the pleasant with the useful

    Just watched. Spoiler alert: totally thought Ford won the race.

    Funny to see Enzo call American cars ugly since nowadays American supercars look so European

    Loved the movie.
    I really liked the part where they kept the Italian language with subtitles in the Ferrari factory.

    Good movie but to much CGI

    I really enjoyed the movie. The story reveals the era of the 60's, chic jazz music and the classic of European machine building. This movie has everything from witty jokes to deep thoughts.
    The movie will be interesting not only to fans of cars and speed. We watched it with my wife and she liked it too
