Cool movie
Cool is the the Movie.

Ultra-cool is the Cartoon series - you can catch it weekdays 7:30 pm on Animax.

I downloaded the movie simply to compare with the Cartoon. From what I understood the cartoon series attained cult status in Japan and has completed more than four seasons .. from the "First Stage" to "Fourth Stage".

Here's the wikipedia entry : Initial D - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

And here is the IMDB Review on the Cartoon: a 9/10 rating !!

"Initial D" (1998)

Talking bmwfilms

They don't make 'em like they used to--Oldies such as Cannonball Run etc. Still have the videos of them though.

BMW have closed the bmwfilms.com and taken off 'The Hire' series. Bu..uut I did download all the movies... muahahahah!



In one of them, they describe how the movie was made and about the stunts (besides the virtues of BMW.) Excellent stuff. And the Madonna one is really funny when she gets her crotch wet... (not telling you how) hehehe!

They are great!! I too have all of them & they are absolutely amazing, especially "The Star" featuring Madonna, Jason Statham & the real star of the film, the E39 M5!

Ari Vatanen on Pikes Peak is much better. It's called "Climb Dance".

didnt the 11x03 fifth gear say this was a fake. the guy used some old merc and just taped the sound of the ferrari over it? still he was pretty fast, though the low mounted camera makes it seem 'faster'

That has long been a suspicion but has not been confirmed. And in any case when this film was released in the 70's, French authorities had arrested the director of the movie but they could never come up with the details regarding the driver of the car & what car was used.

The Director has revealed the car, it was a Mercedes S Class, in the movie the sound of a Ferrari has been dubbed.

A Red S-Class? The colour combo seems unlikely. And where was this revelation, any links?

Lelouche admitted in later interviews it was his own 450 SEL that was used. Not sure if it was red, though I think it was. Here's a pic:

my favs are the BMW movies and Randezvous. As much as it might be fake, some of the driving is pretty intense. In mainstream cinema, Ronin & Taxi 1 (Sammy Nasser) [ if thats how its spelt].

Default The Italian job (1969) - The original

Star cast:

Lamborghini Miura
Jag E types
Aston martin DB4 volante
Tons of Fiats (the baddies drove in convoys of Fiat Dino coupes)
Heaps of Alfa Romeos
1964 Bedford Val 14 coach (always wanted to see one in person)

And offcourse the 1968 Austin Mini coopers S....(i want one of these real bad..)

The first movie my late grandfather ever took me to as a 6 year old...(20 years back....)

Saw it again last night after ages...very nostalgic..too many emotions...

With the opening song - "on days like these" by Matt Munro - love it!!!!

Anyone who hasn't watched this...GO GET IT...makes all other car movies look like a joke!!!!
