Movie Review – Ford v Ferrari

Movie Review - Ford v FerrariIt’s not often that a movie gets perfect marks on writing, acting, and directing, but — pardon the pun — Ford v Ferrari hits on all cylinders.

No one could ask for better chemistry between the two A-list movie stars Matt Damon and Christian Bale. Every scene they had, both together and apart, was perfect.

The writers Jez Butterworth and John-Henry Butterworth worked together on The Edge of Tomorrow — another great movie — and they’re joined by Jason Keller. I hope these three get together for a few more projects because they nailed this one.

Director James Mangold added another great job to his resume, along with Logan, Knight and Day, (a sleeper of a fun movie with Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz) Kate & Leopold, and Girl, Interrupted. Mangold turns out some quality work on a regular basis. I hope he stays busy because we need more quality in theaters these days.

Finally, editors never get the credit they deserve, but this is a 2 1/2 hour movie that doesn’t feel nearly that long. Andrew Buckland, Michael McCusker, and Dirk Westervelt should be on the short list for best editing come Oscar season. (And we managed to find plenty of good Peetimes for the RunPee app.)

Movie Review – Edge of Tomorrow (Live. Die. Repeat.)

Movie Review – Logan

Grade: A+

About The Peetimes: This is a long movie and deservedly has 5 Peetimes.

I think the 3rd and 5th Peetimes are best.

There are no extra scenes during, or after, the end credits of Ford v Ferrari. (What we mean by Anything Extra)

  1. This is a great movie. If you have D-Box in your area, I recommend sitting in them. You feel every movement in the race scenes and you can feel the shifting of every gear that is made. On a scale of 1 to 10, I give it a 9.

      1. I have a San Diego 4-D experience here in Northern San Diego. It would probably cost a lot to Uber there, but I got two free tickets for the screening rooms during Comic Con.

        Maybe I should use that for the last SW Skywalker movie. Never seen a 4-D showing. :- )
