Nerdlocker Movie Review: Ford v Ferrari

“My proudest moments are beating Ferrari for the World Championship in 1965, and working with Ford to win Le Mans in 1966 and 1967.” -Carroll Shelby What does it mean to go fast?

First Official Trailer for Neill Blomkamp’s Elysium

If any of you are like me, and I know some of you are, you were completely blown away by Neill Blomkamp’s feature film debut, District 9.  It was the breakthrough sci-fi action hit of 2009!
