Product Description

One of the best directors of IMAX films, Stephen Low (Titanica) has always been a race fan. After obtaining permission from CART, a governing body of Indy car racing and Newman/Haas racing (a Championship team co-owned by Paul Newman), Low found his stars for Super Speedway: the racing Andrettis, father Mario and son Michael. Mounting cameras fore and aft on the Andrettis' cars, IMAX offers a better vantage point than an ESPN camera, at a superior grade of clarity. Add to that the excellent sound and you can "feel" the bumps on the asphalt as the cars zoom in and out of corners. The large format can turn a pit stop into a dramatic 12 seconds as we see the driver's eyes dart away from his cockpit for a few brief seconds. We watch Michael Andretti on oval tracks and exciting road courses going over hills and sharp turns. There's even a spin--probably staged--from an angle we've never seen before.

Although true race conditions were impossible (the camera is just too bulky), Low sneakily edits his film to stretch the imagination. On race day, several Indy cars drove alongside the camera car hours before the main event, passing and drafting each other with crowds whizzing past them. When edited with footage of the race, it feels like the real thing. Low takes a few off-beat choices in setting up his story. The first image is the biggest chicken you've ever seen. The last shot is a '50s car (lovingly restored during the film) racing through perfect golden foliage on an autumn day. It gives his movie of modern technology a wonderful sense of nostalgia. --Doug Thomas

3.0 out of 5 stars Box Set?? I Think Not ! Feb. 13 2010
Format:DVD
When I was purchasing this item, I thought it was a box set ( as it shows in the picture ). But it is a single case with 2 discs ( the first 2 movies on one disc and the 3rd movie on another disc ). As for the movies, they are not Elvis's best ones of course. But if you love Elvis as much as I do, you'll want them just for the fact of adding them to the collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Elvis Triple Feature July 23 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
For us "old" Elvis fans, this is a delightful trio of movies. Although the story lines aren't spectacular, it is enough just to watch Elvis and listen to his songs.

i should mention that i'm not really a racing fan.nevertheless,i picked
this documentary up fairly cheap,and i thought it might be interesting
and thrilling.and to be fair,it was-to a point.the scenes with the
closeups of the car racing as it's being tested are quite exciting.the
cameras are right on the car,so you can't get any closer unless you're
actually behind the wheel.theses scenes really show you how skilled the
drivers are and how dangerous the sport can be.and hearing the roar of
engines was something.you really get an idea of how powerful they
are.but for me,there were'nt enough of those moments. a lot of the time
is spent showing how a car(at least one car)is manufactured.i knew
before hand that there were would be some focus on this aspect.i just
thought they devoted too much time to it.f you're into that sort of
thing of thing,you will probably enjoy theses scenes.but for me,i'm not
really into that sort of thing,so i found those scenes dry.there is a
making of feature,which is almost as long as the documentary
itself.this is not something that would interest me,so i did not watch
it.however,if you're a racing fan,or you're just interested in the
behind the scenes of the documentary,you might like the making
of.overall,for me,i was kinda disappointed.i don't think the
documentary is terrible by any stretch,but it did not live up to my
expectations.i'd have to give Super Speedway a 2/5.

5.0 out of 5 stars Let's Not Forget Grand Prix!! July 25 2007
Format:DVD
Clearly, Super Speedway is a well-crafted documentary and belongs in every CART/F1 fan's DVD library. Very cheap price for the extraordinary images and sounds that few have captured before.

But let's not forget the 40th anniversary issue of John Frankenheimer's "Grand Prix". This is the first time it has been digitally re-mastered and made available on DVD, and the picture quality and sound is stunning! Frankenheimer was the FIRST to mount bulky 70mm Panavision cameras directly to F1 cars while the actors themselves drove the cars. For sure, the character development / love stories sort of get in the way, but for the true race fan, it doesn't get any better than Grand Prix (incl. LeMans and Bullit). The last climatic race at Monza is simply incredible, and is the FINEST race footage ever filmed. There are special features that should really be seen FIRST before watching the movie, these include "the making of" as well as interviews with actors who were in the film, and pro drivers like Sir Sterling Moss, Dan Gurney, and Sir Brabham. These are RECENT interviews; not old re-hashed stuff.

So it is my humble opinion that you also get the "Grand Prix" DVD where it all began, as well as "Super Speedway".

5.0 out of 5 stars A must for any CART fan! Dec 15 2003
Format:DVD
This is a very engaging film, narrated by the great Mario Andretti. The sound is incredible--almost like being at a race--and the visuals are breathtaking. I'm sorry I never had a chance to see this on an IMAX screen, but the DVD is the next best thing I'm sure.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply Amazing! Sept. 15 2003
By A Customer
Format:DVD
This DVD is a must have for your home theater. I bought it on the recommendations here on the website and was not disappointed. The clarity is amazing. I am using an Optoma H56 projector onto a 92" Da-Lite screen and it is one of the sharpest programs I have ever seen. Nearly HD. The sound is even more mind boggling. The music and the sound effects are great.

4.0 out of 5 stars Incredible footage... Aug. 2 2003
By A Customer
Format:DVD
This is an incredible DVD. The images are absolutely the cleanest. As clean as you can get on an HDTV without an actual HDTV signal - almost 3D. The racing and testing footage was spectacular. I have an Hitachi 65" HDTV(WS) but the DTS and 16:9 function would not work on this DVD - each time I selected 16:9 WS and DTS it would lockup the DVD. I watched it in 4:3 fullframe in the 16:9 std mode on the TV and the audio in DD 5.1 EX with no problem. That is the beauty of Hitachi WS televisions. They will take a fullscreen 1.33:1 and expand the image without distortion in the 16:9 std mode - although I prefer movies in WS. Do not use the 4:3 expanded mode - it creates distortion. I have no idea why the 16:9 WS function would not work along with the DTS audio and I tried it several times. I am returning it for another. I know there is nothing wrong with my system because we watched Cheryl Crow - Rockin the Globe in DTS before watching SuperSpeedway and the Eagles Hell Freezes Over in DTS after that - it must be the DVD disk. If you like racing - it gives an incredible feel - at times "almost" as if you were actually driving...
