I'm very excited for this. Everyone should watch the documentary about it - The 24 Hour War

'Ford v Ferrari' - Matt Damon and Christian Bale

This is out now to buy on digital. Rent on digital and physical next week. I went ahead and just bought it because yolo Google reward points.

This movie is very good. I knew basically nothing about the story, but I assume Ford would win because they were the multi-billion dollar company underdog. Bale and Damon are good. Bale had a little bit more range to show since Shelby was more reserved.

I learned a lot, I thought the racing was fun, and I was outraged multiple times. I can't believe the ending of the race!

The movie is long at 2.5 hours, but I didn't feel like a chore to finish in one sitting. Some things could have been streamlined, but I thought the pacing was good. The only thing I wish it included more was the history of the GT40 design, they went over that way too fast. All of a sudden it was just there. I guess the driving/racing story was more important to the movie than the design.

I saw it this past sat. It was best movie ever!! Just really like how Damon and Bale bonded and their relationship. Crazy how they do a 24 hr. race and what it takes. Also really like how Shelby drove Mr. Ford, and how he interacted with Ford Co.

I didn't realize they had 3 drivers per car. We don't even see the other 2 drivers ever.

Ford Company really is the villain in this movie, not Ferrari
