Didn't see a thread about this movie. It looks fantastic from this trailer.

Fuck, a movie about Senna? I knew nothing about him before I watched a documentary on him, but fuck did he dominate F1 racing.
Here is the trailer embedded. It looks very awesome!
Anything F1 related and especially with Hunt/Lauda is awesome. Looking forward to this.
AS for the movie the racing scenes look really unsatisfying. Like it's Chris Hemsworth in half a car behind a green screen and half second shots clipped together. Car/racing scenes should be long-shots with real cars, but that's just me.
They did film this with real cars at the ring, some pictures surfaced a year or two ago. Here's a video of them filming the crash http://www.gtspirit.com/2012/04/11/v...-nordschleife/
Also, second trailer which I think is much better than the first.

Derp, my computer cut off the F1 part of the title, I came in here thinking this was going to be about the band. I know nothing about F1 racing but this looks pretty interesting.
Surprised no one posted anything about this when it came out. I liked it quite a bit. I absolutely hated Daniel Brühl in Inglorious Basterds, in fact, that whole arc really..but he was pretty damn good in this.
Yeah i really liked the acting in this movie and def thought of an oscar worthy performance by Brühl.
But the jewish lead Hollywood would never award an oscar to a german actor portraying an austrian, you know.
I really liked this film.
The recreation of the 70's look and feel was done so well. The color treatment did a lot. Good acting by both leads.
Also it was good that they showed both in a good light and told both men's stories. So you could follow both and feel for them.
Just watched this. Great movie, probably one of the better ones this year. I'd put it above Captain Phillips. Howard with another solid win.
Fucking awesome movie.
It's amazing to see Lauda still at races hanging in the pits. The guys life is F1, and he's on the level of Senna for respect in the F1 world.
I saw the previews for this when it was in theaters, and thought I had absolutely no desire to see it. Well, after watching it, i can say just how terribly wrong that opinion was. This was a fantastic movie, and you're doing yourself a disservice if you don't watch it, regardless of how you feel about racing.
I give it about a B.
I felt like the problems with the film were that the 2 main characters were so unlikable that you really need stronger dialogue for them, and a better paced underlying story.
The movie was just over too quick, and Howard barely allows the audience to even feel the rivalry between them. I feel like a Director of his caliber should have done a better job overall.
But these are not written characters but real racers. Dunno about the dialog in the racing world its less smacktalk and more see whos right on the track.
The scene about the reporter dude getting his (deserved) beating shows these guys were less talk more do it and think about it later types.
Also Lauda reportedly stated their rivalry was on the track only and they actually got along well outside the racing scene, and that part was made up to better carry the rivalry through the 2 hour movie.
I read the above statement, and think do people really believe that? Are they so uneducated about production that they actually think they are watching a word for word re enactment of real life events?But these are not written characters but real racers. Dunno about the dialog in the racing world its less smacktalk and more see whos right on the track.
It's a movie, and at the end of the day it still abides to all laws of good storytelling.
A movie about two men that competed in one of the most dangerous sports on earth, and yet the movie was very dull most of the time. That alone is a failure in communication.
There are many examples of well put together movies based off true events. The excuse of it's based on reality, so they have to make it as real as possible while shunning storytelling completely doesn't fly in my book.
i learned since that 1976 accident he's always wearing a paid sponsor cap to hide the scars, to this day, that spot is worth 1.2m euros, i'm pretty sure it's parmalot (the milk company) but could be something different, who knows damn gerries and their messed up companies. also i forgot how big crazy sponsors were for this stuff, wife used to work for marlboro for 6 years, they treated employees great, if it wasn't for the fact that they were based in white power virgina, it wouldnt be so bad.
lauda is also a pimp, he divorced that wife in the movie and later married a girl half his age (34, she was flight attendant) and she gave him a kidney and twins.

Can't believe i totally missed this when it came out. Watched this at a friend's house, knew nothing about wtf it was about. Fucking great movie all around.
I have discussed this movie with friends since watching it, and I think that the biggest reason I liked it so much was because I expected not to like it and had zero intention to even watch it. If that makes sense. I still think it was a great movie, but I wonder if I had been really excited to see it if I'd have been so enthusiastic afterward.
Yeah F1 crashes are pretty crazy.
Movie was incredible, only thing i questioned was if Hunt beat the shit out of the reporter
Did this incident happen in real life? It did not happen, as depicted in the movie, but…
“It could have happened,” said a friend of Hunt, who died 20 years ago and isn’t around to speak for himself. The friend made the comment at the recent Italian Grand Prix. “That was something James would have done.” Hunt’s son Tom concurs that it was possible, “That’s the way dad was.”
Lauda said he had no direct knowledge of the incident.
I read somewhere that before they made it big and were driving in the lower racing series in the UK. They actually shared a flat in London.
You can see though why that would be left out of the movie as it would be a further complication to the story. Show their different characters, focus on the rivalry on the track, yet sitting down to watch TV together that night.
fantastic movie. the cgi fire kinda sucked but other than that amazing. i know it was low budget so i give that a break. solid 4/5 possibly 5/5. i don't do half stars.
For how low budget it was, incredibly well done and didn't feel at all like it was.
Finally got around to seeing it. Definitely met my expectations. I feel like had I never started watching Top Gear, I would never have gained an appreciation for F1.
A few more things of this quality and Senna, and maybe F1 will start to gain some traction in the US?
Movie was entertaining but the rivalry felt superficial and unconvincing.
Left side is Highend GT cars. VERY fast vehicles. Right side is F1...
Chiming in with another "fantastic movie" comment. At no point did I think that the racing looked bad or even movie-like. It was extremely well done. The acting was also extremely good. I'm not sure if the pacing and overall story start/end points were perfect, it felt like something was a bit off there, but it didn't really detract from the movie significantly. I thoroughly enjoyed watching it from start to finish.
Agree with pretty much everything. Skipped it in the theaters because it didn't look that interesting in previews, so maybe my expectation level helped. But very surprised this isn't nominated for more. Highly enjoyable.

Oh and sorta fuck Tuco too.
Got this movie from the redbox and I'm really glad I did, I really enjoyed this. Was well done all around.
Does the fact that I'm trying to do it do it for you?

got a blu ray gift of this and watched it, wow. i'm totally not a car guy, never watched a formula or grand prix or anything like that race in my life, have watched a few top gear episodes but mostly for the laugh bits and skip the car porn stuff.
this movie blew me away, would probably have been shit in anyone else's hands but Ron Howard really did a great job along with the entire cast. Gonna pass along the bluray and hope more people see it, I definitely get the hate people have towards the Oscars now, Rush really got screwed.
nah not a big surprise, it was from my brother in law for whom I download and share all new Top Gear UK releases, he's a big car nut and thinks I am too since i have a nice car and just nod my head and smile vacantly when he starts talking about engines and porsches, meanwhile I am thinking about how I will defeat the next boss in dark souls
same thing happens in my family with basketball, i love wearing basketball shirts because of the colors and feel of the fabric, but everyone just assumes i love watching it all the time. i don't really know shit except michael jordan and lebron james, but I sort of have gotten good at faking it
