RUSH comes out this weekend. If you like good cinema go see it. Rotten Tomatoes is giving it an 89% score right now. Ignore the fact that the movie is about racing drivers if you're not a racing fan it won't matter. The critics that are loving it aren't the ones who are also racing fans. Ron Howard directed the movie and one of the critics is calling it his best work.
Here's a list of Ron Howard's work that "isn't as good as RUSH"
Frost/Nixon (Academy Award winning film), Cinderella Man, A Beautiful Mind, Apollo 13, Backdraft, and obviously a whole lot more.
