    The original Gone In 60 Seconds is a bloody good car chase.

    Brap, brap, old chap.

    Philadelphia Story - 9/10

    Never tire of this film. Cary Grant, James Stewart and Katherine Hepburn all on top form with a script that fizzes with brilliant wordplay and innuendo. They don't make em like this any more.

    What a load of bollocks.

    Blues Brother was utter trash. All car piles. No real driving.

    Ronin and Bullitt come close. But not near enough the level of Driver.

    It's all about Smokey & the Bandit.  You're kidding yourself if you think otherwise.

    Are we talking about THE Driver or Drive with Ryan Gosselin?

    Driver of course.

    Drive is a good film but its not about the car chases.

    Remember that training/intro level in the first Driver game? That tough as nails first level? Practically a carbon copy from a scene in Driver where Ryan O'Neal shows his skills of to some thieves and he literally makes one of them wet his pants.

    The Vanishing (1988) 8/10

    I’d read great things about The Vanishing, and it seemed best to see the Dutch–French original, rather than the U.S. remake, so I tracked down the Dvd.

    Given the films age, the picture quality is good. The story moves along at a pace that keeps the viewer glued, always wanting to know what’s next, and where’s it all leading to. I found the film great at that level. Then comes the ending, and I felt let down. The ending didn’t hit me that way I had hoped for.

    -

    I Google'd :

    'I like the fact that this movie keeps the mystery alive all the way through the end and kind of lets the audience debate among themselves what might be possible explanations. Of course we put little clues in there as to possible explanations, I suppose, but we never really settle on one or the other. So the movie becomes more of a point of debate…

    The movie and the story is really about characters who are confronted with this huge mystery and they're sort of grasping at straws looking for some kind of explanation and ultimately realize that maybe it's beyond our understanding, that there isn't an explanation. Like death itself. The movie's really a meditation on characters pondering their own existence in a way. So it's appropriate in my mind that the story not have any clean…explanation.'

    - Director Brad Anderson (director of the U.S. remake)

    All good films with good car chase sequences.

    What you don't understand is that Driver took the car chase and made it a central element of the film. It's practically a character itself. All the car related sequences are just extensions of Ryan O'Neal's character. No other film has anything like it.

    I've not seen Driver. Will check it out.

    The Resident Evil films. I'm one of the reasons they keep making them.

    My friend is a big Evil Dead fan and he hated the new one. And I mean he was proper angry about it.

    Personally I can't wait to see it. But I'll have to, I don't get to go to the cinema these days. Kids.

    Film of the year? Are you talking about Drive?

    I'm talking about Driver. A film that had a strong influence on Drive yes but totally different films really.

    That got me interested as well.


    I don't even mind most modern movies being a disappointment - good, I'm busy enough catching up with the old ones.

    Think thats the problem the film is going to have. Treading on 'holy grail' means that its not going to live up expectations or its going to be instantly dismissed (ala promethous).

    It's not but it's heavily influenced by the 1978 film. Very similar atmosphere and story.

    Once upon a time in the West - 1968

    Up until recently I had only catched parts of it on TV. Now I've watched the whole movie and it's brilliant.

    9/10

    I've seen Drive plenty of times. It was my FOTY when it came out. The Driver starring Ryan O'Neal came out in 1978.

    The Resident Evil films. I'm one of the reasons they keep making them.
