Did you enjoy our review of the original 1969 The Italian Job last week? Well, good news! We’re watching the 2003 remake this week, which is also called The Italian Job despite being mostly set in Los Angeles.
You’ve heard of Jalopnik Movie Club, right? It’s the weekly series where we argue about cars, argue about movies, and argue about cars in movies. We’re changing things up a bit, and now our movie reviews will run on Thursdays. Write in before Thursday with your take on the movie and the cars, and then we publish all of the takes and opinions in one big group review.
This past week we reviewed the groovy original movie, which I described as a Jeremy Clarkson fever dream, and it was great. This upcoming week, we’re reviewing the original The Italian Job. If you already have a formed opinion on the movie, or you plan on watching it, be sure to email in your review to justin at jalopnik dot com. I want your hot takes, like saying you like the remake better than the original (because I kind of do, too).
Here’s a good guide on what to send in:
Subject: Jalopnik Movie Club
Body: [Your Kinja username if you have one!]
[Your hot movie take!]
[A movie suggestion for a future review!]
If you missed last week’s review and want an idea of how it all works, check it out here.
Now get busy! Send in your takes! Show off your movie knowledge! Defend the movie with honor, or tear it to pieces! And then check back on Thursday for the full review!
