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?
When you see a rundown Cadillac ambulance in your neighborhood, who you gonna call? Ghostbusters... fans.
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…
One of my favorite lines in the entire Back to the Future trilogy comes in the second film when Marty and the Doc are in 1955, tailing Biff from the air in the flying DeLorean in an attempt to retrieve the sports almanac and set history straight. Marty suggests landing on Biff to cripple his car. "Marty," the Doc…
Sometimes it's just one shot, just one moment that defines a car in movie history.
Some movie cars perfectly fit the bill, automotive expressions of their characters. Then there's this crap.
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.
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.
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.
What if you combined Taken, Drive and The Transporter but added a twist of Before Sunrise and set it all in a Shelby Super Snake? You'd have Getaway, which we have the trailer for right here.
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.
Despite building what is unquestionably the ugliest C7 Corvette Stingray in the world, Transformers 4 successfully made a pretty-looking Bumblebee out of a 1967 Camaro.
Never much for the concept of subtlety, director Michael Bay has cast two of the least subtle performance cars as Autobots in the next Transformers explosionfest: a 2014 Corvette Stingray and a Bugatti Veyron.
Christopher Nolan's Batman movies aren't just great action films, they're awesome movies for gearheads. What, besides the occasional Michael Bay crapfest, has vehicles as awesome as the Tumbler or the Batpod, or even Bruce Wayne's Lamborghinis and MV Agusta motorcycle from The Dark Knight?
Why do people keep kidnapping Liam Neeson's loved ones? Seriously. Play the odds on this. Dude killed a bear and joined the A-Team to save his daughter in Taken 1 and now you're going to try and kidnap his wife? Bad move guy who looks like Anthony Hopkins but probably isn't.
Ferrari Classiche announced this past week they are in the process of returning a Ferrari 275 GTB/4 once owned by Steve McQueen back to factory condition. McQueen famously took delivery of the car while he was in San Francisco filming Bullitt.
It's no secret famed Rat Packer Dean Martin is still about as cool as it gets, so it only makes sense he would choose a vehicle as cool and unique as a 1962 Ghia L6.4 as a mode of transportation.
If you want it, Kenny Powers' custom 2005 Dodge Ram from the third season of Eastbound and Down is up for grabs for the low, low price of $15,000. Strangely, it didn't sell on eBay last week, so it could still be yours.
