Mad Max

It’s been copied in films, music videos and video games and will forever go down in history as one of the best car chases ever filmed. Mad Max came out in 1979 and brought with it an automotive rawness that has yet to be duplicated in any other road movie. The films opening chase sequence is nothing short of sublime and was filmed entirely at speed by director George Miller. The cars were Australian built Holden Monaro’s set in a post-apocalyptic wasteland. The stunts were outrageous and the adrenaline that shot off the screen to this day still gives all that view it goosebumps. This is the opening chase scene from Mad Max, and it is, simply put, awesome…

Do the DRIVE-In!

Drive In Movie

A few weeks ago my Wife and I had a wonderful thought. You see I’d heard that there was a drive-in movie theater not far from my home and since I hadn’t been to one since the late 1970’s, I figured “What the hell” and we decided to go. We took our 1992 Chevrolet Caprice wagon, a behemoth of a machine that for some unknown reason, I love to death. The movie was Despicable Me 2 and the parking lot was packed solid. Minivans, pick-up’s, wagons and the odd-sedan covered the lot. There were folding chairs, pop-corn and kids laying on truck roofs with blankets. People were talking, eating and having a jolly old time and for a moment, I felt like I was 7-years old again. The drive-in movie is becoming a lost commodity here in the United States. They take up a lot of room, don’t make much money and at days end, the outcome of the profits is largely dependent upon the weather. However if you have one near you, just go. The experience was wonderful, the laughter contagious and for low-low price of $7, you too can feel like a kid again.

RUSH Ron Howard

Ron Howard’s upcoming film “RUSH” tells the true story of the famous Formula 1 battle between drivers James Hunt and the brilliant Niki Lauda.

Both drivers were outstanding with two completely different styles of driving, and if the film is anything like the trailer below, we’re all in for one helluva thrill ride!

The Chase

It’s a known fact that some of the worst movies in existence feature some of the best car chases ever created. Films like Bullitt, Vanishing Point, The Wraith and To Live and Die In L.A. are terrible from a script standpoint. However add in a good car chase, and BOOM! Instant classic. The following is a montage of some of the best chases ever recorded on film and I’ve got to say that the way it was put together is pretty damn impressive.
