Can You Name All The Cars In The Grand Budapest Hotel Trailer?

This Wes Anderson film seems the most Wes Anderson of all, and is full of the usual suspects (Murray, Wilson, Goldblum) as well as a new face (Ralph Fiennes). It'll be fantastic, I'm sure, but can you name all the cars and tanks that show up in the trailer? » 10/17/13 11:46am 10/17/13 11:46am

The Love Bug Is A Way Better Car Movie Than You Probably Remember

I'm pretty sure nobody's going to be shocked that I picked The Love Bug as my favorite car movie. But I think what might be surprising is why. I picked the movie not because it's about a sentient '63 VW Beetle — it's really not about that. Fundamentally, The Love Bug is a movie about people who love cars, and love to… » 9/11/13 2:30pm 9/11/13 2:30pm

How The Back To The Future Films Made Me A Car Enthusiast

Why The Blues Brothers Is The Greatest American Car Movie

While I love the zen simplicity of Le Mans and the pure vehicular ballet of Ronin, the car film I most enjoy watching is The Blues Brothers. How does the worst era of American cars produce the best American car movie to date? Through destruction, of course. » 9/09/13 2:33pm 9/09/13 2:33pm

Start Your Weekend With This Amazing Traffic Jam From La Weekend

This is from the 1967 Jean-Luc Godard (not the face-palming Enterprise captain) movie La Week-End. I saw it years ago and I know it's a masterpiece of French New Wave cinema, but all I remember is how many amazing cars it has. » 8/09/13 5:45pm 8/09/13 5:45pm

They Wrecked 130 Cars To Make Getaway

I've already mentioned that Ethan Hawke's new film Getaway is basically every car movie made in the last five years. What I didn't know was that this basically means they've destroyed as many cars as those films in the process of making it. That's 130 demolitions to be exact. » 8/09/13 4:30pm 8/09/13 4:30pm

Getaway Is Every Car Movie Made In The Last Five Years Combined

This Is The Greatest '80s TV Show You Didn't Know Existed

Unbeknownst to me, there was a TV show in the '80s called Matt Houston. It's basically a low-rent Magnum P.I. but only much, much better. It also curiously mimics my life. » 6/05/13 12:39pm 6/05/13 12:39pm

The Dark Knight's Lucius Fox Is America's Worst CEO

Christopher Nolan's Batman movies aren't just great action films, they're awesome movies for gearheads.
