  •    Have to agree Cosworth on Driven,not only
       one of the worse car movies ever made,but
       one of the worse movies ever made.

       Winning with Paul Newman is fairly good
       with some excellent race footage.

       Still waiting for a Wizard review of Grand Prix :yahoo:

  • I haven't got round to watching it yet  :( I cheated and watched the first 15 minutes or so which made it worse and now I REALLY want to watch it.

    The trouble I have is finding a couple of hours on my own!  ::)

  • The bad news is she can't drive so I have to accompany her on every shopping trip  :'( oh my god, my life's such a mess!  ::)

    The funny thing is, she suggested watching a film at the weekend. I suggest what about Grand Prix that you bought me for Christmas?  :)
    You've watched it she replies
    WHAT!?  :o I watched 15 minutes of it before you dragged me away to do some odd job.  >:(
    Oh, well we don't want to watch that now, what else is there.

    So I made her watch Snakes on a Plane - bad film but she hates snakes - so it's not all bad.  :D

  • If you're like me Rom and you like Futurerama and the Simpsons Rom then you must love comedy films.

    Seen any good ones lately?

  • Mate I own the entire series of Futurama, all available episodes of Family Guy, all available episodes of Scrubs and several other comedies, but I actually have more espionage thrillers than comedy.......

  • Thunder Road is my all-time favorite movie. It's the most true to life moonshine running movie ever made. It's Appalachian settings remind me of where I grew up. I've got it on both tape and dvd. Besides the cars, its got Keely Smith :D.

    A bit of trivia about the film. Robert Mitchum's younger brother in the film is played by his real life son, James Mitchum. He was a last minute choice. Mitchum wanted Elvis to play the part, and Elvis wanted to do it. Mitchum just could never come to terms with Elvis's long time manager, Colonel Tom Parker.

    One of the best car records of all time is Robert Mitchum's "The Ballad of Thunder Road." Oddly, his version isn't used in the film. They use Keely Smith's much slower version.

    Ronin has some great car stuff, too. It was director John Frankenheimer's final film. He did a pretty good car film earlier in his life - Grand Prix.

  • Mad Max.  You gotta love the vehicles in that movie: cobbled-together bits of this and that, heavily armored, jump tanks stuck on wherever they'll fit, and helter-skelter chase scenes with lots of shooting and parts flying off and.. and...

    Mel in black leather.

    Yeah.

  • The Ford GT camera car that was used in making the film, and towed not only Montand and Bedford, but also Antonio Sabato, was driven by former WDC Phil Hill. Hill also played driver Tim Randolph.

    Voice over artist Paul Frees was best know for another voice he did. So if Izo Yamura sometimes sounds like Rocky & Bullwinkle's nemesis Boris Badenov, now you know why.

  • I'ts not a car movie but I was impressed with a film called Hell Drivers made in the 50's and shown a few years ago on TV. Cowboy truckers working against the clock have a rough and accident prone life but the driving seqences are first class considering the vehicles and the era in which it was made. I think it is a British made film.

    Has anyone else seen it?
