Target and Best Buy have their exclusives


I have not seen it but 90% of Bales movies are good so maybe there won't be a big risk for a blind buy.


I can't find any links for the offical artwork for the standard Blu and 4k releases since it seems like temp artwork at Walmart and Best Buy.

I had the disadvantage of knowing too much about this story (including the race and the fate of the characters) before watching and didn't enjoy this as much as I might have if I had known nothing/very little. But it IS a really well-made movie.

That sucks. I am in the cold and don't know who wins but if it is set in the U.S. probably the answer is obvious.

No spoilers.

Same here but I enjoyed it.

Spoiler:
The conversation with the Porsche guys was so off the real time line. Shelby heard of Miles because of his work at Porsche. Otherwise, I could let everything else go.

No spoilers.
Let's just say that neither manufacturer's Le Mans record will never come close to the one manufacturer that won it so many times; I doubt anyone will beat it.

The foreign release title for the movie is Le Mans '66, so I'm going to guess it's not set in the U.S.

It does as well as Europe. It’s really a great movie and well worth a watch.

Considering it is technically a Disney title, not surprising, as that is always an issue with Amazon and Disney.

I can't imagine physical disc sales are much of a profit center for them. Probably close to break even when you consider having to receive in, store, and ship out every disc for a low price.

That has been the case for the last several years.

I assume these are the artwork for the standard editions

The UHD looks great on this. I'll pick up the 4K disc when it comes out. Amazon may lose sales, but I'll more than likely purchase from them since I only buy discs when they're on sale. Day 1 purchases are long gone for me, nothing really holds my interest like that anymore. And I already have the digital that I got on sale.

One of my favorites of 2019.I did not know any of the story besides knowing the name Carroll Shelby and Le Mans was a 24 hour race.
Plan on buying the Target
exclusive when it goes on sale or Target has a movie deal.

Re: Ford vs Ferrari Bale Damon Feb 11, 2020

I do wish the Matt and Christian conversation extra wasn’t an iTunes exclusive. Bet it’s good. Anyone know how long? Looking forward to that 60 min making of though. I wonder if Vudu’s extra for this is truncated like the one for The Martian. Don’t know by they would do that. Think only 25 min of more than hour, I believe of making-of....

The doc is called Bringing the Rivalry to Life is very good. It’s a full hour. 3 other docs bring the total extras run time to about 2 hours.

Well right now it’s a Vudu exclusive, so it may pop up when it goes full MA.

What’s a Vudu exclusive? The Damon/Bale conversation is iTunes exclusive. Not Vudu. It’s not listed there anyway.

Never mind, I thought Vudu had this movie as a digital exclusive. But I do see it on iTunes as well. And it does have the Bale/Damon conversation, it’s 14 minutes long.
