98 Rotten Tomatoes is a good indicator.

It's a heck of a ride from go to whoa....definitely a must-see.

Max has kinda a back-seat role to Charlize Theron's but she's much prettier, anyway.  It's worth it just to see her 'robotic' arm...it'll have you wondering if she cut off one 'for the cause'...

We saw it at the theatre at Highpoint....just a couple of miles from where Max's original Falcon was built at Duhig-Ford's Niddrie garage. ...

But Kid Rock was better...

Saw them Tonight [Sunday] with 100,000 or so others in Melbourne [Etihad Stadium].

Kid Rock was the 'support'...but I preferred them to JBJ.... the accoustics were crap - certainly didn't help...and JBJ's mixer should have been shot...but maybe it was more the stadium than him...

Terry named this 'Sabrina' .... bit of a play on words, I expect.

2007 SAAB 9-3 Aero Cabriolet.

Price was too good to refuse, being 70k AUD off the '07 listed price.

Quaintly...although SAAB is Swedish....this one's German...and the Engine was made in Port Melbourne [Australia] just a 'couple of miles down the road' from me.

Fitted with a Hirsch performance chip the 2.8l V6 Turbo Intercooled produces 202kw [276 hp] at 5670 rpm - or 90% of the 400 nm of tor...

Terry and I just saw it today...and it's brilliant....

As some of you might know...both myself and Terry work as Officials in Formula One .... and I started as a Communicator in 1976 ....around the time the movie was set.

I didn't get 'my hands on' [or even see an F1 in the flesh] until 1980 ... but certainly some of the names mentioned were still around then...and the first time I would have met Lauda was in '84 at Calder [in Melbourne].

It's an excellent movie ...

Ya gotta love Tarantino...

There was one bit that HAS TO BE the funniest piece of film I have seen in YEARS....

I know he loves paying homage to all those old B Movies..... but this time there was a bit of 'Blazing Saddles'-style.

Will it be another 'cult classic' like Pulp Fiction?

Possibly...

 

BTW... don't spoil it for anyone.  Anything resembling a 'spoiler' will be removed...
