I had a new found (to me) car chase scene I posted a few days ago, and it got me thinking....always an activity fraught with peril.
What's your favorite "car" movie?
I'm NOT a big fan of car movies loaded up with CGI, and impossible stunts, like the "The Fast and The Furious" series, and some of the stuff done in the remake of "Gone In 60 Seconds", so I won't include those.
And movies with great chase scenes, like "Bullitt", and "Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior", are great movies, but aren't what I'd call "Car Movies", where the cars are a big part of the entire story.
This narrows the selections down considerably, and the few that I know about, and like, would be as follows:
"Grand Prix" starring James Garner and others
"Le Mans" starring Steve McQueen
"Rush" starring Chris Hemsworth
"Truth in 24" starring "People You've Never Heard Of"
Now there are many other movies out there that the cars play a fairly big part in, but by my narrow-minded definition, aren't quite in the same category as the 4 movies above.
Some of those are:
"Heart Like a Wheel" starring Bonnie Bedelia
"Cars" by Pixar
The original "Gone In 60 Seconds"
"The Big Wheel" starring Mickey Rooney
"To Please A Lady" starring Clark Gable
And many, many more.
So which are your favorites and stinkers?
