I don't know, "RUSH" set the bar pretty high for racing movies....

It is a rare young person that loves this stuff.

I was rare in my time in some ways.

The history here is huge In Motorsport terms.
Really stoked to see more history on the subject before I see the movie.

Does the dog narrate the movie like the trailer?

I'll go see Racing in the Rain.

The Damon Bale movie? I think the chances of it being a legitimately decent racing movie are about 5%. Damon does Bourne movies really well.

Racing movies? When I watch MotoGP 18 times a year, I'm not going to pay $10 to see someone who doesn't race impersonate a racer.

IDK, talking dogs in movies (or narrating, in this case?) are a little too Disney for my taste.

I don’t remember Asta having any lines in the “Thin Man” movies, and he did alright!

The original Thin Man is one of my faves. The dialog in that movie is terrific.

The scene from The Shadow of the Thin Man when they get a police escort across the then new Bay Bridge is still a classic. Even with sirens blaring the old cop on the bike leading is still getting passed by cars in the other lanes...
