    Halfway through this movie right now, and it's great so far. Just had to jump on and tell you all to look for the early 60's Imperial!

    Here's a hint, if you're "Stuck__'_"

    That's the next one for us to see. We have one of those theaters where you can sit in the recliner and they bring you food. We saw "Glass" last Tuesday.

    The movie is amazing, and the cars are just icing on an awesome cake of a story! I'm watching it on Kodi at home.

    I really enjoyed the last gig dr. played in the movie before they headed for home. It looked like he was enjoying himself.

    It's a true story. All people we not treated like "people" based solely on the color of their skin. You apparently need a weekly beating.

    The Outsider (2018) is also a movie you shouldn't miss, when you have an appreciation for early 60s Imperials.

    You don't say! Gosh I've never seen any of the 10,000 previous time-travel movies and documentaries in pop culture that repeat this same theme.

    What really sucks is crippling new generations to believe everyone hates them.

    So au contraire my friend, I'm so far past the point of needing indoctrination that I recognize the harm it does and how it's used as a tool to keep hate alive.

    Someday you'll get there. I'm confident.

    You're clearly not picking up what I'm putting down.

    The movie was well done.
    The cars in the movie are gorgeous.
    The acting was on-point.

    But please, tell me more about how callused you are, having to watch such horrific movies. While you're working on that, I'll still be talking to people who were on the receiving end of the hate- people who have actually endured something crippling.

    As long as there are still people out there spreading hate over the subject matter, movies like this will continue to be applauded by people like me, even though that's not the main focus of the movie.

    Seen the movie, and noticed the 63 imperial first when the players agents handed them the keys to the Cadillac. I saw it again in another scene when they arrived at a hotel, and were walking over to a diner. The Imp was parked in the background.
    With the exception of a few scenes I thought that could have been left out, it was a pretty good movie all in all.

    I can't think of any scenes in the movie that weren't relevant to character development.
    The scene I was referring to was when they were eating outside of Stuckey's. It's behind the Doc, blurry in the background, but I could make out the Imperial logo and headlight shape.

    The era of this movie takes place is before my time, but learning this is supposed to be based on a true story, I'm quite sure both parties had to make adjustments to their preconceived opinions each had toward one another, beginning with their initial meeting and throughout the tour destinations.
    When I first saw the Imperial, it was parked in front of the 2 Cadillac's just as they were preparing to start the tour. The 2nd time was by a restaurant, and as you mentioned, it was slightly blurred and in the background. I thought the music agents were going to meet them at the restaurant, or something, but the Imp was just there for the scene as a period correct car.

    Tremendous movie - I've seen it twice!

    I did see a few cars that were out of time. A '64 Falcon in 1962???? What? A lot like Hidden Figures. Excellent film, but when the cop pulls them over in a '64 Ford - and it was supposed to be October '61???? My wife gets mad at me as most people won't notice. But, there are those of us who do. What are the Prop Masters thinking????
