Monday Movie Meme



Feature Presentation...

MONDAY MOVIE MEME

This week Molly and Andy at the Bumbles Blog ask about our favorite car chase scenes, so here goes with my list:

  • Bullitt (1968) - First film that came to mind when the words car chase were mentioned.
  • $ (1971) - From what I remember, there's a great, ridiculously long chase at the end where a car is after Warren Beatty, who's unfortunately on foot. For an even longer, more leisurely chase, I might have chosen Duel.
  • Used Cars (1980) - Brilliant film all the way through, where there's a fight going on atop the chasing cars.
  • Matrix Reloaded (2003) - A car chase from the Wachowski Brothers, that makes up what for what it lacks in subtlety, with utter non-subtlety.
  • Grindhouse (2007) - the Death Proof segment.

Aggh! Used Cars - we own that movie - shocked that Andy didn't come up with that one. I personally hated it which may be why he didn't bring it up ;0) Looking forward to seeing Grindhouse.

First one I thought of was "Bullitt", too! And I totally spaced on "Used Cars." Awesome pick.

You know I've never seen any of those movies? More to add to my "to watch" pile.

Thanks for the comments. I'd definitely add "Bullitt" and "Used Cars" to your "to watch" pile, boliyou, whereas Matrix Reloaded you can probably quite happily live without (unless you really like car chases).
