2. Gone in 60 seconds - Elanor!!!
3. Back to the future series
4. Italian Job
5. Cars, Cars 2
6. Torque (somehow liked the movie)
7. Bad Boys 1 & 2 (I know, not a real car movie, but the chase scenes in it are awesome! esp. in the 2nd one!)
8. Need for Speed (did not live up to expectation, but still a good car movie)
9. Death Race series
10. Transporter Series

the list is endless!!!

My favorites are, apart from most of the movies mentioned above:

1. Rush. Came out earlier this year, portrays the Hunt-Lauda face-off in a brilliant manner. My fav scene is the one when Lauda takes the peasants car to its limits to impress his would-be wife.

2. World's fastest Indian. Amazing performance by Anthony Hopkins, and one of the best bike movies I have ever seen. I'm not sure if Bajaj intentionally copied the title for P220 ad.

Yes yes! How could I forget Rush! What a brilliant movie. It is without a doubt, one of those must watch movies for driving enthusiasts like us!

I used to like the Mel Gibson movie "Mad Max" in college days. Ronin definitely and Italian Job were lovely. Thanks to many new names in the forum, looking forward to watch them.

Nice movie - Drive. It's not outstanding as online reviews (including Rotten Tomato ratings) would have you believe, but still worth a watch. Ryan Gosling is a good actor.

Only 50 bucks on YouTube for HD.

Car Dogs = 3 / 5 stars. Watched it only because it's set in a car dealership. Gives some insights about the competitive sales environment, politics, tricks played on customers etc. More of a regular drama that's interesting to us only due to the dealership environment.

Watched Baby driver a few days back. The car driving, especially the Subarus in the first few driving sequences, is excellent.

Default Re: The Foreign (non-English) Movies thread (no spoilers please)

My post is about favorite Hollywood movies with iconic cars in them. This is my list:

1. Risky Business - Porsche 928
2. Bullitt - Ford Mustang GT Fastback
3. Ferriss Bueller's Day Off - Ferrari 250 GT California
4. Italian Job - Mini Cooper S
5. All Herbie Movies
6. John Wick - Ford Mustang

The movies themselves may not be of much artistic quality, it's the cars which are almost characters in their own way.
