DrivingScene Movie Review: Rush

Posted on 19 September 2013 by Adam Kaslikowski

Rush Review

Ron Howard’s Rush isn’t out till this weekend, but we’ve grabbed an early premier so that we could tell you – our gentle and attractive readers – whether it is worth your time. Was the famed director capable of truly capturing the intense rivalry between James Hunt and Niki Lauda? Did filming with the actual 1970’s F1 cars make the movie better? Is there life-affirming nudity? We’ll get to all that…

Rush was Ron Howard’s pet project to showcase what the “golden era” of F1 was all about. Loud cars, fast parties, and spectacular crashes were all a part of the racing scene then, and are heavily featured here. Those of us who have only ever seen the perfectly manicured and polished modern version of F1 are unused to imaging racing drivers publicly drinking before a race, routinely talking smack during a press conference, or going up in balls of flames. Oh yeah, that was another huge part of F1 in those days. The cars were basically bombs on wheels, made of thin aluminum and with regard given to driver safety. This fact plays a crucial part in our story as any student of F1 history knows. We won’t ruin anything for you here if you don’t the historical story yet, but suffice to say you really didn’t want to be a driver back then.

So enough stalling – here’s the review:

It was good.

Oh, you want more? If you insist… It’s not as historical as Senna, or gives you as good of an idea of all the players and their personalities. But much like Senna, Rush revolves around the rivalry between 2 men at the top of their performance. Howard does a great job of showcasing the different styles and private lives of Lauda and Hunt, and details what drove each man to risk his life racing around in circles. It was not a great film, or even a great racing film, but a solid one worth seeing for any gearhead who wants to fill in their F1 history a bit. Also, there’s boobies and Chris Hemsworth’s naked butt in the film so whatever your proclivities you should be covered.

Go see it, you’ll enjoy it.

F1 Team Cuts Car In Half For Your Enjoyment

Posted on 02 June 2012 by Adam Kaslikowski

There have been a plethora of great automotive videos that have been released in the last few days. This one caught our eye immediately and has been on replay ever since. I’m not sure what you do with your time off, but apparently the Sauber engineers enjoy meticulously cutting their hard work in half. Over two years. Just for your viewing pleasure. Cheif Designer Matt Morris then gives us a walk-around of all the major components of the car. Enjoy (I know you will) and expect links to the other great videos we’ve been seeing in the coming days.

Review: Senna

Posted on 06 October 2011 by Adam Kaslikowski


I’m kind of in a funk right now. I’ve just walked out of the theater, and I have been deeply humbled; not only by the film, but also by Ayrton Senna himself. The man was a legend and king of F1, and a prince in Brazil. He was a ruthless competitor and a devoted humanitarian. He feuded with teammates and F1 officials but progressed the sport to the prominence it now enjoys. Clearly the man was complex, but what of the movie? Keep reading to find out…
