I'm going tomorrow with the wife and my two kids.  I can't wait.  We're booked for the 3:20 IMAX show and we're back row center. 

I didn't do the 6:30 show cause I would probably be sleeping in my chair before the movie was over.  I figured the 3:20 show gave me a fighting chance to stay awake thorough the whole show.

BRING IT ON!!!!!!!!!

Went to the 3:30pm IMAX show this afternoon. Wow. This really was a tribute to Ken Miles and well deserved. IMAX is a must - the sounds and rumbling vibrations, especially the last 40 minutes at Lemans, are visceral. If only they pumped in the smells of burnt fuel and rubber. I originally didn't like the choice of Damon as Shelby, but he played him well. Bales was fantastic as Miles.

Went to 3:40 showing today on road trip in Vancouver, BC today.  Great family friendly movie!  Loved it, and even though there are sure to be some disputes over Hollywood interpretation it is great entertainment.  Long overdue.

Went to the first showing today.  Besides many details and typical Hollywood fluffed up exaggerations it was a really good movie! IMAX definately the place to see it. Got my heart pounding and got me pumped up! Kinda like watching Rocky then exiting the theater thinking you could fight anybody🤣🤣
Going to see it again Sunday!!

Oye! Don't go punching hanging sides of beef unless you want a broken hand and dislocated shoulder! Don't ask me how I know.

Best to sit in the car in the garage at night and just make car engine noises? Losing your license at a Social Security age and being older then the Judge (who you coached in Little League) is kind of a "life changing experience". Definitely not roll model imagery. Expensive too.

I suppose humiliating as well when the Judge asks you to apologize to the arresting officer and promise not to hit anyone anymore too?

You know you meet some interesting people at those Probation Officer monthly meetings. :(

Saw it last night at the only 4k IMAX in New England in Reading Mass. Entertaining for sure and more importantly to me I hope it sparks interest in these cars and the Shelby American story amongst the youngsters who see it.
