Topic: Ford vs Ferrari (2019)

AKA Le Mans '66 (https://www.imdb.com/title/tt1950186)

Great film overall, the current wife and I enjoyed it.
I don't really like Christian Bale, but I have to say he was great in this.  His British accent was really on point.

The current 8.3 score is justified.

DRM "manages access" in the same way that Prison "manages freedom".

You do realise he's English?  Actually, I think he was born in Wales, so he must be Welsh.  With English parents.  I'm confused.

That's the second biggest X I've ever seen.

I didn't know he was from Wales, thought he was a typical American.
Still, the accent in the film was northern (Yorkshire).

If you listen to his outburst from a few years ago, his natural voice I guess, he sounded English then.

He also sounded like a crazy person.

i don't trust IMDB scores one bit anymore, they are useless.

rotten tomatoes (both critic - AND audience scores) are much more useful

Anyways, I also really enjoyed the movie, more then i though i would!

highly recommened.

I totally disagree. smile IMDb scores are a good indicator if you wait a bit and if you look at the break-down too, in this case https://www.imdb.com/title/tt1950186/ratings

But of course everyone should use what works for them.
