    Anyone see the movie Rush ? I thought it was well done. Even the wife enjoyed it. And of course,it does have Olivia Wilde in it ;-)
    I would rate it a solid 8/10.

  3. I agree! It was very well done and amazingly my girlfriend actually really liked it too! I think it was because of the fact that they really made it about more than just the racing!

    Oh, that's the Ron Howard movie about F1 racing? I heard they took some liberties with the facts and there was a lot of CG added but I'd still like to see it. Is it already available through Netflix?

    It does have a few deviations from the actual timeline of events, but it is still a very compelling movie. I went to see it with a couple of friends with no interest in cars and we were all pretty happy with the experience.

    The only CG was the stands and crowds. It was all shot at one racetrack in GB with original F1 cars and driven by current owners.
    All car footage was in-car/on-car. If you read the interviews with Ron Howard and the screenwriter you'll see they were forthright about what was a compromise and how true to the events they were. Niki was happy with it...
    Just hope I never have to have a vacuum cleaner stuck down my lungs......

    Bought the Blueray yesterday and watched it last night. WOW! Well done. Great on big screen w/surround.

    You should check out the movie 1 too, goes into the fight for Drivers Safety from the late 60's through Sena's death. I saw it on "Fios On Demand" totally worth checking out.

    I saw the sneak preview of Rush and it was good. Senna movie was excellent. Snake and Mongoose was ok. Need for Speed was entertaining.
