John Candy was only 43 when he died of a heart attack in 1994 on the set of a truly terrible movie called Wagons East!. I was young, but I remember his death being met with something like unsurprised shock. Candy had, after all, been quite overweight for years; he also drank and smoked. I can think of many actors,…
Well, isn’t this some good and happy Monday news!
There is often no stranger advertising partnership between a comic book movie and a car manufacturer. Not just because the thought of superheroes who can run at superhuman speeds or fly being used to shill a car is weird, but because it often means a completely insane comic tie-in to go with it. And they’re often…
If you’ve ever tried to ride out a nuclear blast hiding in a refrigerator, and found it’s less suited to that task than you were led to believe, you know what I’m about to tell you: movies aren’t real. As unreal as they are, they sure do work hard to seem real, which is probably why these certain car-related things…
More car and heist movies are never a bad thing—usually they involve exciting chase scenes. And now it looks like Netflix will add its own feature to the mix.
I’ve never understood why automakers put their pie-in-the-sky concept cars that real people can’t buy in movies and TV shows (unless they’re set in the future, like I, Robot or something), but Mercedes is doing just that with the upcoming Justice League movie.
You know those really awkward moments in movies where you, as the viewer, actually feel embarrassed that you’re watching them? Moments that make you cringe so hard that you feel like you’re about to turn yourself inside out? Well, Overdrive as a whole felt that way: a cringey, cheap and flat discount version of Redline
You guys are familiar with the “Everything Wrong With” film critiques that CinemaSins puts out, correct? They are typically on point and bring up thoughtful criticism about the films they review. But here’s the thing about the review on The Fate of the Furious: they completely missed the point of the movie.
Earlier this year, the eighth installment of the greatest franchise ever created hit theaters. The Fate of the Furious was fast-paced, grandiose and filled with explosions. Scott Eastwood was in it. He’s in this new movie, too, called Overdrive, which also has cars and explosions but, strangely, seems to have nothing…
The red 2006 Subaru WRX only makes a brief but memorable appearance in the opening act of this summer’s hit heist movie Baby Driver, but it would appear it made quite the impact considering the price one of the stunt cars just sold for on eBay.
Choosing the best motorsport movie is a tough decision as there are so many good ones. Everything from documentaries, like Truth in 24 to biographies on Colin McCrae to movies like Rush. I’ve seen most of them but I keep coming back to The Evolution of Rally: 50 Years of Sideways.
When Terminator 2: Judgment Day was released, it was a blockbuster to end all other blockbusters—the most expensive movie of all time that actually lived up to its price tag. It was the kind of movie that, if it was made today, would have been the subject of thousands upon thousands of bullshit internet articles that…
So far, 2017 hasn’t given us much to look at, unless you enjoy watching protracted dumpster fires. So, of course, the logical thing to do is to look back. Ten years, to be exact, which brings us to 2007 and the birth one of the greatest terrible car movies ever made: Redline.
Baby Driver was one of the biggest hits of the summer box office, and now the company that modified the 2006 Subaru WRX that plays the star car for the opening of the movie is looking to sell it off to somebody who needs a car to jam out in while robbing banks.
I’ve watched the first Fast and Furious movie enough times now to basically know it line-for-line. And so the next logical step for this level of fandom is to recast the movie to include myself and my coworkers.
Hey, so last night I went to a screening of Atomic Blonde—the stylishly brutal action-packed flick set in 1989 Berlin right before the fall of the wall, in which Charlize Theron plays a ruthless, savage, kickass spy—and there were some really good cars.
Cars 2 was not a classic film. It was unfocused and a bit too dependent on plot rather than characters. But it was a solid film. It had great action set pieces and ‘blink and you’ll miss it’ humor. And it doesn’t deserve the death by omission it is currently enduring.
Christopher Nolan’s relentless World War II drama Dunkirk is in theaters this weekend, telling a fictional story of the very real British defeat against Nazi Germany in France and subsequent retreat from Europe at the start of the war. Here’s the history behind what you see, and what you don’t see in Dunkirk.
