FASTER on the BIG SCREEN



SCREENINGS AT SANTA CRUZ¹S RIO THEATRE MAY 26, 29TH AND 30TH



MOTO GP LEGEND WAYNE RAINEY

WILL MAKE SPECIAL APPEARANCE ON MAY 29TH

FOR Q&A WITH DIRECTOR MARK NEALE





FASTER will screen in Santa Cruz, California on Wednesday, May 26th at 8pm,

Saturday, May 29th at 2pm and 8pm, and on Sunday, May 30th at 2pm and 6pm,

at the Rio Theatre, 1205 Soquel Avenue, Santa Cruz, CA 95062. Tickets are

$7 at the door. The event information number is (831) 423-8209.



Racing legend Wayne Rainey will make a special appearance at the 8 pm

screening on Saturday, May 29th, and will do an audience Q&A with director

Mark Neale. Prominently featured in FASTER for his incomparable

contributions to the sport of motorcycle racing, Rainey was the top World

Championship 500cc Grand Prix rider of the early 1990s, winning three

consecutive World Championships riding for Yamaha. In addition to his

accomplishments on the world championship level, Rainey was also a star of

AMA Superbike racing during the 1980s, winning that title in 1983 with

Kawasaki and again with Honda in 1987. Rainey's career as a motorcycle racer

came to an abrupt end in September 1993 when he crashed while leading the

Italian Grand Prix and suffered paralyzing spinal injuries. He returned to

the world championship circuit as a team owner and manager, and currently

races in a specially-designed go-kart. (Source: American Motorcyclist

Association).



On display in the lobby of the Rio Theatre will be race bikes including Mike

Judkin¹s Yamaha R6, a replica Repsol Honda NSR GPmachine, with thanks to

Charles Gallant, Pascal Picotti¹s vintage Buell race bike, with thanks to

Santa Cruz Harley, and a Moto Italia Ducati.

It's an independent film, documentary style. So I think it's safe it will be better than Torque. Watch the trailer at fasterthemovie.com


Gotta admit torch (mispelled on purpose) was pretty bad. I rented it last weekend and would have rathered pulled my own teeth than see that flick again. I did manage to watch the entire thing tho-kind of like watching a trin wreck...:p

I may give it a shot.
I couldn't watch more than 1/3 of torque. Waste of $4 and 30 minutes.

Yeah I could host a screening party if people like. Got lotsa room and the system for it :D

Across the street for DS is the Outback and they have a private back room with a big screen that they will happily host us in. Should seat around 50. Also, we have the 03 Moto GP in review and On Any Sunday in stock, no wait, just come and buy them !! :)

I saw Faster at the motorcycle show. It was the coolest motorcycle documentry I have ever seen. It follows the 2002 MotoGP season, has quite a bit on the Rossi/Biaggi rivalry, shows old footage like Rainey and Schwantz. Just listening to the racers talk is worth the money (if you can decipher what they are saying!). When I went, half the crowd were WMRRA folks and there were tons of oohs, aahs and Whoas! :eek:

My wife was in Vegas so it was a week of me renting anything and everything I felt too it would be too cruel to force her to watch. Dorque was on the list (of course). Now.. I wish I'd spared myself (my next-door neighbor came over, he has some interesting commentary as a non-rider). Ah well, just about anything woudl be better but from what I've heard Torque is a pretty slick film.

I ordered mine last week, blocked out 4 weeks on my callendar and I'm counting down...

Funny thing about the DVD version, if you selected the Directors audio track instead of the film's audio it was bearable, dare I say interesting (from a movie production and writing standpoint that is). The womenz were pretty hot.. and that first sceen on the road (despite the obvious hollywoodiszation of it - was the best part). You're lucky you turned it off after 30 min.. depite what you might image it went downhill from there!
:eek:
