I could be writing about the dysfunction of Washington right now. I could be writing about the most hated man in Washington. I could be writing about birther meme posted by a friend. But...
|Ron Howard..no really it's him.|
I approached the movie with a little trepidation. First I was concerned that it could easily become a "sports" movie about a famous rivalry in racing. I was also concerned when this movie advertised itself as "the best movie of Ron Howard's career." Any time you have an advertising campaign resting solely on an A-list director's name, I feel I should worry. Well, it's not the best film of his career. I think Apollo 13 is his best work. It is also heads and shoulders, actually from the knees up, better than How the Grinch Stole Christmas.
|The real James Hunt and Niki Lauda|
It is a solid, good movie. It is great storytelling and the more I think about the movie the better I like it. Rush is R rated for brief nudity, strong language and some graphic visual effects. I don't know that I will buy the DVD simply because it is not one of those movies you would necessarily watch again and again, but it would be well worth the money. Go see it.
