    Default "Rush" -- My Movie Review

    I know Ron Howard's film "Rush" has been in theaters for awhile and most of you here who were interested have already seen it, but here is my review anyway. You should know I rarely go to the movies. I think the last film I saw in a movie theater was "The Social Network" about 3 years ago. But I was interested enough in the subject matter of F1 racing to see Rush.

    I really enjoyed the film, particularly the racing sequences, and the car set-up in the Lauda camp. The personal story of James Hunt as a playboy was less intersting to me, although he certainly had a different beautiful girlfriend every week, and the story of Niki's marriage was just kind of a side light. The rivalry between them on track seemed real, but the personal relationship was not realistic from what I have read. Since I didn't know the exact history, the fact that Niki raced in F1 just 42 days after being in that horrific fire is absolutely amazing, and his determination is a highlight of the film. His treatment at the hospital after the firey crash are hard to watch, but realistic.

    All in all, a film well worth seeing for racers and racing fans.

    2004 Honda S2000 AP2 6-MT - track day car
    2006 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution IX MR 6-MT - when I need a backseat, 4-doors, or a real trunk, and still want to haul ass . . .

    OK, so since you ask in a condescending way, I was a big film buff when I was younger. I went to the movies all the time from when I was a little kid until my mid-40s. Then I enrolled in night Law School, which takes 4 years, including 2 summer sessions. I was working 40 hours a week at my job, commuting to night law school and attending classes 4 nights a week, and the only time I had to study, was on the weekend. I worked very hard at law school and my graduation ranking was 3rd in a class of 408. So going to the movies just had to go out of my life, and I never got back into it.

    Not condescending at all buddy! You should take the son out more often! Although if you're critical then usually most movies these days are just ass.
