    Driven movie

    So how is it we haven't discussed this yet? I just now saw the trailer (last to know). So to me, the trailer looks to paint Hoffman as the hero/average man pushed into above average situation, and JZD as the anti hero villain douchebag. I am withholding any further judgement but at least it looks entertaining although it seemed a lot was fabricated with that Hollywood [make it dramatic] spin.

    It kind of reminds me of that old DB Sweeney/Charlie Sheen movie where Sweeney played and undercover cop getting close to Sheen's car theif character. Sheen's character was evil but likeable.

    It looks kinda weird to me, but maybe only because it's such stretch from the reality we know.
    Bro....do you own a DeLorean?

    Ford vs. Ferrari trailer is out on youtube. That’s the biopic we deserved, instead we get “Driven.” Everything 80s seems to be cast in a less than serious pop culture lens.

    When does it come out? I have no intent of paying to see it from what I've seen, but there are other ways and means.

    No Man's Land (1987) was an EXCELLENT era film.

    I'll reserve my judgment on Driven (2018) until I see it, but from the trailer, it looks like every other 80's nostalgia media that Hollywood has been pumping out the last couple years in that it tries too hard to be '80's and therefore grossly fails to actually convey the '80's, thus leaving the true '80's aficionado feeling like they sat through a cheap imitation.

    IMHO, the only recent '80's nostalgia effort that has any sort of actual success/merit is Turbo Kid (2015), which is definitely worth a look if you haven't seen it yet...

    Rumor has it that a sequel is in the works.
