Can I just say…FINALLY!!!! FINALLY a movie about the band we’ve been begging to hear more of and learn all about. Rush! RUSH!!! You know, that Canadian band that sang that song that I recognize! That high pitch voice, those complicated drum beats! You’ve got it right trailer, it goes Beatles, Rolling Stones, then RUSH! That’s not hyperbole at all. That’s less hyperbole than the opposite of the billions of people who were clamoring for a Rush movie! You couldn’t be more accurate with how amazing and important and influential Rush is. Thank God you aren’t letting your love for the band cloud your documentary and you are just making a truthful, honest film about the best band that ever lived on the history of Earth, RUSH!!! It’s true that they were incredibly seminal, just listen to the guys from Pantera and Dream Theater go on about how much they influenced them. And you know important Dream Theater!
You’ve even got Gene Simmons saying, “What kind of band is Rush? It’s Rush” and some non-Dave Grohl guy from Foo Fighters saying, “Chicks don’t really dig it.” WOW!!! You’re really selling me! I hate chicks! It true, nobody ins music should be in it for the chicks.
YEAH!!! Check out all those guys rocking out to Rush in their tooks! That’s Canadian for winter hat. I’m getting the lingo down because I LOVE RUSH!
Wait, they are going to respectfully talk about how the bandmembers entered each others live in high school in this documentary?? WOOOO!!! RUUSH! Can I say it again? FINALLY! And thank God they’re cutting off these songs I sort of know, that way it keeps me wanting more so by the time this movie actually comes out I’ll be running to the theater to see it!
Look at Getty Lee, who apparently is the lead singer of Rush. Scrawny looking with that weird long goatee and those tiny glasses, he’s a rock God! Of course he is! SIng more about Tom Sawyer! YEAH!!!!! RUUUSH!!!!
One of the non-Getty lee from Rush said, “they made fun of us relentlessly.” NO!!! How dare they make fun of a bunch of Canadian high school kids who are more into high pitch vocals and complicated rythems than chicks! You know what you guys should do? You should make a movie about yourselves saying you are the third best rock band of all time. That’ll show ‘em. Oh, you did! RUSH!!!! FINALLY!!!!!
Thank God they didn’t write Three Legends in quotes in this trailer. That wouldn’t be accurate at all. Because those three guys, Getty Lee (who is apparently a guy) and those other two dudes, really are legends! Legends of…RUSH!
By the way, Banger Films production company, if you are looking for more AWESOME seminal bands to do documentaries about I have some ideas!!!
