'Le Mans 1966', in the UK, changed for the US as they wouldn't understand that title.

Apparently for people in the US, the Le Mans title would not have been as effective as the Ford v Ferrari, as least that was the decision of the distributors

I just saw the trailer for this film. It made me emotional. I cant wait to see it.

Also, I can acknowledge that I am a child... I AM OVER THE MOON EXCITED FOR MULAN!!! (Even though they do not have famous songs the movie is known for.)

The story of LSL.(lowrey)the painter a strange film but watchable.If you have a spare 90 minutes,a typical time period british movie. Oh and timothy spalls weight loss you will see what i mean.

This explains so much, I was thinking they were different films. Then I came across the "Le Mans 1955" animation short, about the accident that killed 80+ people, and thought I must have gotten it mixed up with that.

"Harriet" A film about a real life superhero - Harriet Tubman, who escaped from Slavery. Then, living in Philadedelphia as a free woman took great risks to cross the Mason-Dixon Line to come back with runaway slaves.

Helps explain the "Race Issues" in USA. Trump and his Trumpeters will hate it.

Missed it on first release, but your post reminded me to check the second run cinema. I enjoyed it, a very important story to tell, though it was a bit TV movie in production terms.

The Irishman. Story about the mob and Jimmy Hoffa. This was my 2nd attempt to watch the movie. It is 3 1/2 hrs long. Firstt time around I kept getting distracted and couldn’t follow the plot. Last night I made sure there was no distractions. Very good movie. :thumbsup:

There's as much chance of me watching another Adam Sandler movie as watching another one with Will Ferrell.
