Dolby Cinema & a theater that was only about 25% full.


Glad I read this. Dolby Cinema is basically Dolby Vision (Dolby’s version of HDR) + Atmos sound. I have both at home (not big $ either) so if they were playing this in the Dolby Cinema theater, that means the 4k disc will be Dolby Vision and Atmos. Damn good news, can’t wait to see it on disc in a couple of months. Glad so many + reviews here. Thanks.

I look forward to finally getting my media room done one of these days.
Movies like this & Rush are a definite to break it in.

This was a $6k panel when it came out. Steal at this price. Best LED panel ever made imo, no burn in risk. Dolby Vision.

Atmos can be done pretty inexpensive also. Speakers/subs there are always steals. Only thing that is painful ($)is the AVR to run it. AVS Forum will have the deals. I bought most of my stuff way under cost.

I just couldn’t deal with the morons and their phones in the theater any longer and did mine in April (it’s a 15X13 bedroom). It was 2 years straight of going to the theater on the regular with phone interruptions every single film. I would have liked to go see this film and Joker, and Ad Astra in the theater but the picture quality and sound is now better at home. Just couldn’t take discourteous people any longer. Some films people would bring in their pizzas, appetizers, and when all that was done it was phone time. Straight ADD. Why anyone wants to pay $17 or whatever for the brand new film, another $20 on snacks, gasoline to get there, your free time, etc, then spend all that money and surf your phone, it just escapes me. Good news is the films hit disc now in 90 days. I rent the 4k discs for $2.79 delivered to the mail box. Praise God.

I have a dedicated, tiered media room. Probably going to do a projector on a 100" or so screen.
It's currently being used as storage for my in-laws as the unpack their house since moving here from CA.

Watched this with my wife and youngest son Friday night.

My father in law was a diesel mechanic and loved cars. We figure he is shaking hands with the greats like Carol Shelby.

I found the history to be good, and Christian Bales acting to be great.

My wife, who has zero interest in car racing, and I watched it on DVD last night and we both thought it was excellent. Too bad this movie didn't win the Oscar.

While my daughter is "into" cars, she's not really. She likes the fast ones but knows very little other than they are fast and look cool. My wife, no interest whatsoever. Both thoroughly enjoyed this great movie. Actually the only movie recently that none of us grabbed our phones to fiddle around on while watching.

It has been a while since I saw a movie that I thoroughly enjoyed. Bale, as always, didn't disappoint on this one.

My wife thoroughly enjoyed both Rush and Ford v Ferrari. She's more recently gotten in to F1, since we've attended a couple races in Austin.
I was actually surprised that it was her that encouraged us to see the latter in the theater (didn't take much to convince me).

My coworker's wife, on the other hand, was beyond bored with Ford v Ferrari.

Finally got a chance to watch it, DVR'd from HBO, thought it was well done and that the actors caught the essence of Miles and Carroll as well.

I know it's "Ford vs Ferrari" and the battle of two manufacturing companies, score to settle, or perhaps the iconic rise of Carroll Shelby, but it also clearly was a story of Ken Miles, his crazy life, obsessive personality, and amazing talent....

In the end Carroll should have told Ford to have the other cars slow down and let Ken catch them and then cross the line, assuring Kens win, and the photo of all three cars together.

Kept it on the DVR, will watch it again...

As to having another actor play Shelby, remember it's set in 1964-66, he was 43 years old at the time of the story....

I really enjoyed the movie. It brought back a lot of memories from my youth and interest in sports car racing. I thought Damon did a nice job. You really have to separate actors life choices from their acting ability. Tom Cruise can HALO jump for realism for a movie and still be a strange person. Bale did a great job.

Good all-around flick for most viewers; I had a hard time hearing, then seeing Damon trying to pull-off Shelby's Texas accent/twang. Besides that, they didn't over-act or come off as trying too hard.

Caitriona Balfe can more than hold her own on the screen, I see her as a brunette Charlize Theron; watching Outlander she can give that range of emotion without having to utter a line.

With NASCAR stepping on its dick with the Wallace/Garage issue, perhaps the American auto racing interests can shift back to international competitions, would like to see the endurance races return to their prior prominence: Sebring, LeMans, Spa, Brno, etc.. There was a time when ABC's Wide, Wide World of Sports would feature all these races.
