I just got home from seeing Ford vs Ferrari/ Le Mans 66 on opening night (in the US/ Colorado). I thought I might give a review to my fellow Planet F1 counterparts and Motorsports aficionados. There are a whole lot of mistakes and or omissions of the story we all know and love (and we will argue them untill this thread is shut down!). Of course what did we expect McQueen's Le Mans 2.0, or Frankenheimers GP revisited. I think we all know those ships sailed long ago, and this movie is not them, but we know there will never be any movie's to match those two. But it is 2019, and it is a different world, to put it mildly, and all in all I must say this is a damn good movie. It is not a over done Hollywoood movie, with endless CGI, and over doing the story in all the modern "Hollywood crap" that comes out of that industry these days. It is just the story, good cinematography of what happened. and lights the fire of intrigue of what Motorsports is and was in mid 60's motorsports.

If we are looking for a good movie to further the sport we love to the next generation, this is probably as good as it will get in 2019.
