I rented Dust to Glory last week and was very impressed with how engaging Dana Brown's presentation is for all 137 minutes. Great stuff.



I give it two thumbs, a knee and a couple of elbows.

I tried fast-forwarding through most of it to find parts I enjoyed, but overall I thought it was pretty lame. Reminded me of network olympic coverage that skips the action to show "up close and personal" anecdotal filler. "Mario could be anyplace in the world, but he's here at my race!!!!!!!!!!!!" There were short stretches of interesting footage, including the Corona babes, and some film of the scenery was impressive, but I'm just glad I didn't pay to see it in a theatre - I would've walked out.



It was interesting to see how absolutely wacko some of the spectators were - running in front of the racers and standing on the outside of corners, and it certainly showed some of the danger involved - the competitors are definitely gutsy - but I was disappointed.



Just my opinion, obviously, but it demonstrated how difficult it must be to fill 2 hours of screen time with anything that's consistently interesting.

Loved "On Any Sunday" - especially the humor like the beginning on how people learned to ride and even the corny gasoline lighting of the desert bike; maybe I just liked the characters like Mert, Malcolm, etc. Just good unpretentious fun. Great mix of riding and mischief.



Couldn't even finish "Dust to Glory". Got tired of hearing how tough the race and the riders/drivers were. Of course they're tough and they're incredible, but saying it over and over again for two hours (or at least the first hour I could watch) got pretty repetitive. Just my opinion - not a movie that will be remembered at all.

It's "The Beatles," not "The Beetles."

I'll have to rent a copy. Haven't paid much attention to the Baja for awhile, Saw some coverage on MSNBC (I think) which was very poor. Too little action and too much yakking it up with riders/drivers. The Dakar much better now since it's moved to OLN and with the Red Bull team of Americano riders/Robby Gorden featured with an

American presenter (the crazy guy from Speed-don't know his name) a big improvement from the British review from earilier years so I prefer watching it to Baja.

Never could get all weepy about On any Sunday

For my money their is only one motorcycle movie worthy of the name:Little Fauss and Big Halsey.

Really gets down to what motorcycling used to be about before the influx of all these Harly riders who think their s*it doesn't stink because they ride a fifties MC.
