Three great films about racing cars, strife and violent emotions
The creation of the great racing simulator “Gran Turismo” happened because it was no longer enough to see it on TV or on the race track to get close to the thrill of cars burning tires and spinning. A film has now been released with an “inspiring” and true story to try and spread the enthusiasm for video games and capture the classic emotion of motoring cinema.
Automotive films are very diverse, and the proof of this is that there is a whole subgenre around racing and high competition. Sports drama and many adult films that gets bright and adrenaline when done right. As is the case with these three classics, ancient and modern, which can be seen on various streaming platforms.
‘Days of Thunder’ (“Day of Thunder”, 1990)
Address: Tony Scott. DistributionCast: Tom Cruise, Robert Duvall, Nicole Kidman, Randy Quaid, Michael Rooker.
Class model fun we hope Gran Turismo gets close to that if all goes well. Gasoline rushing through blood vessels, elemental rivalry and buddies, a crazy romance and plenty of high-rev laps to convey to us the excitement of the racetracks that inspire such devotion in the southern United States.
Tom Cruise once again shakes hands with director Tony Scott at its most purely crafty, replicating Top Gun in many ways. A little behind in many cases, improving in some, such as the chemistry in the romance (the actual tension between Cruise and Nicole Kidman helps). Be that as it may, there is no doubt that the film knows how to present and became benchmark of the racing genre.

Address: Ron Howard. DistributionCast: Chris Hemsworth, Daniel Brühl, Alexandra Maria Lara, Olivia Wilde, Natalie Dormer.
Against all odds, we’ve seen Ron Howard, the deadliest specialist in what’s known as parenting cinema, make one of his best films in this formidable sports biopic that follows the real-life rivalry between Niki Lauda and James Hunt. Some even claim that it can be director’s best filmAlthough it helps that the bar is not crazy.
Of course, this does not change the fact that the film is very effective and knows exactly what he has to offer. The rivalry is well developed, the characters are properly explained through opposite personalities and actions, and the two actors do a more than remarkable job in their characterizations. And he told the race well in such a way that the carburetor finishes off emotions.

‘Le Mans’ 66′ (“Ford v Ferrari”, 2019)
AddressStory by: James Mangold. DistributionCast: Matt Damon, Christian Bale, Jon Bernthal, Katrina Balfe, Noah Jupe.
More passion on the race track, embodied in one of its best expressions in the form of a menacing adult film that is rarely seen on billboards. James Mangold signs one of his finest works as a master and completes a parenting film with a racing story that brings together complex personalities, economic and creative tensions, and one one of the best and most demanding tracks in history.
Matt Damon and Christian Bale (the closest he’s come to playing a normal person lately) are amazing. wonderfully told story. Both the business side and the mechanics are worked out with great skill, without losing entertainment. He knows how to use humor and in the final stage you have shots of excited people telling you how the race is going so you don’t get lost. Copy.
