    Racing to log this before I see it again tonight but I was lucky enough to get into a guild screening a couple weeks ago.

    I love shop talk movies and I love seeing real vehicles move on film so this was extremely enjoyable for me to see in IMAX. I don't think this will be everyone's cup of tea as it were, but I think a lot of it, even most of it, is incredibly re-watchable, which I think may help its chances for awards.
