Sometimes Hollywood makes a movie SPECIFICALLY for you....

Iíd watch this just for the cars it has to showcase (Ferraris and Cobras!).  But Christian Bale as Ken Miles is icing on an already delicious looking cake.

All that eye candy!
I'm not a "Ford Guy" but the Cobra is a whole 'nother animal. 
I'll be watching this.

The trailer came out a while ago and I was immediately attracted to this movie. I was born in Indianapolis and my family loves racing. I lived in Florida until I was 9 and the Ferrari Killer was something I was told about when I was young. I am looking forward to this movie quite a bit.

I already watched the documentary The 24 Hour War, and enjoyed it.

This looks like fun. I like Matt Damon, and it looks like they've jazzed things up to make the movie interesting but reasonably correct. I wonder how much screen time they devote to Carroll Shelby... that man had a history of achievements and antics that could take up a whole series of movies :)

Crashes in the movie will most certainly be more Ďdramaticí than real life.

Not that racing in the 60ís didnít provide some genuinely dramatic moments....but Hollywood canít seem to resist flipping a crashing car twice more in mid air than needed.
