It's more likely to just be a ball though.

 

You cannot decapitate balls, either.

Most of this is the tedious drivel 'composed' for the film. The tracks in inverted commas are the 'proper contemporary' items, and of these there's nothing later than David Bowie's Fame, from 1975.

 

More importantly though, nothing from after 1976. That is far more irritating to me, particularly when it's so easy to find an equivalent from the time or earlier.

 

But, yes, the soundtrack would have been so much better, and appropriate, with "Jeans On", Demis Roussos and The Wurzels :lol:

HSCC chairman Chris Sharples reports in the latest issue of the club magazine that he attended a preview screening and greatly enjoyed the F3 sequences at Crystal Palace and Cadwell Park, and was pleased to see all the HF3 guys who took part were given full acknowledgement in the credits.

As far as TNF is concerned, without any doubt at all, it's disembodied bollocks.

Don't forget to don some headgear, we wouldn't want you to be decapitated.

First Post! 

 

I just read the entire thread over a two day period.   Im 44, the only thing I remember from that time period is the AFX HO scale slot cars.  So thanks to the interweb, I have read a bit and youtubed a bit.  Now with some what of a working knowledge Im going to go watch the film and enjoy it for what it is.

 

With that said, in a former life I flew attack helicopters in the US Army,  and I saw the movie "Firebirds" with Nicolas Cage, not to confused with the much more realistic "Thunderbirds".  I don't think that was supposed to be a comedy, but it was.  It was because I lived in that world.  My friends that have nothing to do with any sort of aviation think that most of the movie was cool.  So take that for what its worth.  BTW, that movie should be purged from all things motion picture related. 

 

Conversely,  I am now getting into open wheel vintage racing because of "Grand Prix", 

 

I hope I made my point.

I thought the most salient point from the piece was Mark Digby's comment.....

 

For Digby good production design is about ‘detail and integrity’. With Rush authenticity is also crucial. ‘There is a whole bunch of people who know every little detail, whether it’s the technology of the cars or what the advertising was like,’ he notes. ‘It’s all there and very easy to check up on the internet.’

 

I wonder if he's seen this Forum ! :)  JohnP

I am tempted to take up that New York Times offer. You get 10 free articles and you improve your knowledge of stuff. For instance:

 

 

This article has been revised to reflect the following correction:

 

Correction: August 28, 2013

 

An earlier version of this article misidentified the style of racing in the 1971 film "Le Mans." It is endurance racing, not Formula One racing.

For all F1 fans in Toronto, Rush will be shown during the upcoming TIFF (Toronto International Film Festival) on September 8 Sunday 9:30pm or September 9 Monday 12:00pm as their North American premiere, don't miss the chance - you never know, maybe Niki Lauda will be there too (blind hope?)???   :love:

A "blind hope"? Ear ear (divide everything I say by two). On Sunday he will be doing his day job. Well, both of them: first as an impartial commentator on F1 for the German ZDF television channel and second as a big cheese in the Mercedes team. Watch him seamlessly switch hats without damaging his integrity.

 

You might tempt him with a suitable bung to turn up on the Monday, however.

 

If you are a betting man, you could probably get 1,000,000-1 for Sunday and 1,000-1 for Monday. Even on the Monday, however, you have more chance of being hit by a meteor strike. Good luck, anyway.

Nice thought, but the judges will take one look at the subject matter - F1 - and move on. Maybe 'The Dale Earnhardt Story' , no doubt in production somewhere, will do better...

I think they should post that at the top of any thread on the Racing Comments board that isn't about F1, just as a polite reminder...

Morning,

 

Well, I went to see 1 of the premiers of Rush last night.  I went with 2 friends who neither knew the 1976 season story, nor are avid motor racing fans.  The good news is they thoroughly enjoyed it.  As a swashbuckling movie of 2 heroes going toe to toe in what has to be said is a decent story with a positive spin and motor racing as the backdrop then it's really quite good.  If you are a motorsport devotee and know the 1976 season then I'll be honest, this film probably isn't for you.  For those that are purists then I seriously would advise giving this film a wide berth, they have not let facts or truth get in the way of a good story and as such there are innumerous flaws where the facts have been pushed aside for a flowing story.  Additionally, if you are the type of person who likes to see a film without silly errors (such as the CSI officials appearing as the FIA, with the latest FIA badges on their jackets) and would find them distracting (as I actually did, there are so many) then again give it a wide berth.

 

Personally I came away from the film disappointed, I felt it was a pale immitation of what actually happen in 76, but my friends thoroughly enjoyed it as a dramatic movie that was fast paced and had 2 excellent central characters.

I saw the movie last night and, for a Hollywood recreation of real events, it is no too bad. Of course liberties have been taken with the facts but overall and by the standard of some racing movies, it is not too bad. The problem is, for those of us who lived through the '76 season and know what happened, it lacks dramatic impact (though, of course, the same could be said of any movie based on real events, Howard managed to make Apollo 13 more gripping than I found this). In fact I found it a little tedious at times (having no interest in the private lives of the drivers) and the racing scenes, though well done, are surprisingly short. I wonder what the non racing enthusiast public will make of it. I well remember two girls coming out of a screening of Cameron's "Titanic" and one asking the other "was that based on a true story". I felt like telling them "the love story was true, but they made up the bit about the ship sinking". They would probably have believed it. Of course, if you know nothing of the history, you might think that Howard has pinched the plot of Frankenheimer's "Grand Prix" (driver has life threatening accident, makes amazing comeback but loses championship at final race). What the film does do is show how effective good use of replicas and CGI can be. Now, how about a film of the '58 season.

I went to a press showing some weeks ago, and it's a good movie. Purists should stop thinking it's a documentary. In fact, for a movie they've gone to great lengths to get lots of the detail right. Of course there are many tiny errors and they failed to cover up some of the real decor and props that they used, such as an F3 car hitting Lauda's wreck in plain sight, or Brands Hatch acting as the Paul Ricard straight (so Paul Ricard has hills and slopes!), but they could have done much and much worse. Most importantly, they got the feeling right. The surprising thing to me was that they created a personal rivalry between the two while in fact they were friends, and yet at the same time Hemsworth and especially Brühl both portray a very believable Hunt and Lauda. Brühl is amazing.

 

The only thing that pained me was the action scenes. In every scene, the cars were just too slow. Not as in slow-motion slow, but just plain too slow.

Yes, interesting stuff, he's clearly an exceptional actor, he's practically turned himself into Niki, but although I can't really comment without having seen the film, the protrayal of Hunt worries me a little. Early reports mostly agree that Chris Hemsworth does a good job, but it's surprising for me that they didn't make him look more like James, the hair and facial expressions just aren't right. Maybe you have to be born into the English upper-middle class to be able to portray one convincingly, at least as far as other English people are concerned.

I wouldn't have thought that that's the case - it's an actors job to portray what s/he is not. Hemsworth, of course, didn't have the benefit of spending time in the company of the person he was portraying. I think every critic I've read has singled out Bruhl's performance as outstanding. This includes critics who had no familiarity with Lauda, which is interesting - it suggests that Bruhl is a really good actor, rather than just a great mimic.
