Ford V. Ferrari

AVAILABLE NOW!

RATED PG

153 MINUTES



Based on a true story, an eccentric, determined team of American engineers and designers, led by automotive visionary Carroll Shelby and his British driver, Ken Miles, are dispatched by Henry Ford II with the mission of building from scratch an entirely new race car with the potential to finally defeat the perennially dominant Ferrari at the 1966 Le Mans World Championship.
Starring Christian Bale and Matt Damon.



REVIEW:
I can see why this one is an Oscar winner.
What a great film! It's a great story. It has wonderful actors playing these roles that actually happened, and showing those who didn't live through it, how it all went down.
I'm so glad I watched this one. I didn't think it was going to be that great, like whoopie, it's about racing. But actually, it's the history of the Mustang GT. What a piece of machinery it is too! The history behind it was so intriguing!
The hubby walked into the movie about halfway through and sat down. He stayed for the rest of it and got sucked right in. He was cheering right along with me during the races.
Yeah, a great movie, and frankly one you can watch with your kids if they are over say 7 years old. They could probably get into all the car stuff if they're boys, especially.
FYI; I think the car should've been named after Ken Miles. He was the real star behind it all anyway.


5/5

The Invisible Man

AVAILABLE TODAY! RATED R 125 MINUTES AMAZON What you can't see can hurt you. Trapped in a violent, controlling relationship with a wealthy scientist, Cecilia (Elisabeth Moss) escapes in the dead of night and disappears into hiding. But when her abusive ex suddenly dies, Cecilia suspects his death was a hoax. As a series of eerie coincidences turns lethal, threatening the lives of those she loves, Cecilia's sanity begins to unravel while she desperately tries to prove she is being hunted by someone nobody can see.  REVIEW: I sorta hated the beginning. Starts outs so dark that you can't really make anything out. Hard to know what's going on if you can't see. It doesn't take long to get light though. Thankfully. Man, does the story ever pick up after that. I don't remember much about the original but this one is intense. Right to the very last second too. Sydney is badass and shows it throughout. Can you imagine what it would

#Win 1917 (US/CDN)

AVAILABLE MARCH 24! RATED R 119 minutes AMAZON April 1917, the Western Front. Two British soldiers are sent to deliver an urgent message to an isolated regiment. If the message is not received in time the regiment will walk into a trap and be massacred. To get to the regiment they will need to cross through enemy territory. Time is of the essence and the journey will be fraught with danger. Starring Colin Firth. REVIEW: So it wasn't the best war movie I've ever seen, but it was still good. The cinematography is amazing! So rich and with so much detail. The story is just okay though. Two soliders sent to stop the front lines from walking into a trap. Not that interesting and often predictable. A few yelling at the screen moments happened, not gonna lie. How it was all brought together, mixed with a tug on the emotional heart strings is what is makes it good. Watched it with the hubby. He was engaged throughout, so that was good. He's n
