“Rush”

Standard

I am sooooo looking forward to the Holiday movie season – so to start it off and even though I have a free screening on Thursday of “RUSH” – I had to go see it on the 1st day of limited release…Why?..because I’ve loved Formula 1 since I was a little girl & my dad & I used to watch it together & he would tell me all about the race car drivers. This movie is every single one of those memories and having had the chance to have met Niki Lauda in the 80’s makes it super special to me.. But it’s not just a movie about car racing, it’s a story about people & their lives, about what it takes to overcome & survive incredible odds, about 2 sportsmen, who led polar opposite lives & who despite an intense rivalry that made them hate each other, were also full of respect for each other. It’s sad, funny, intense & and even though it has a few choppy moments, is a great story woven into it about a world I’m sure many don’t know to much about. For me, I can’t wait to see it again..oh and yeah.. This is for the girls ~ Chris Hemsworth is amazingly hott! I didn’t think I would ever say this..but his blue eyes are almost like Paul Newman blue eyes.. 😀 Grade: B+ #peggyatthemovies
