    The World's Fastest Indian

    Yeah, yeah... I'm probably the last person on the planet to watch that movie, but I finally saw it this afternoon. It was one of the best movies I've ever seen. If you've never seen it, get off your dead ass and find a copy.

    Anthony Hopkins does an incredible job playing 63 year old Burt Munro, a New Zealander, who in 1962 set the world land speed record at the Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah on a 1921 Indian Scout that he had owned since it was brand new... a record that still stands for the 600cc class. There was a good bit of embellishment from what I remember about Burt Munro, but damn the movie was good nonetheless.

    Just everything about that movie was great. First thing I did after it went off was a search through the TIVO directory to set it up to record it the next time it comes on, which is in about 45 minutes. I think I'm gonna watch it again.

    I've heard several people say it's a great movie.
    Oh I used to be disgusted
    and now I try to be amused.

    It is an excellent movie.
    If at first you don't succeed then skydiving may not be for you.
