u forgot about the massive car chase thru LA (incl. driving in the wrong direction on freeway) from "to live and die in LA"
Real chases are the best hands down, french connections has some wild moves.
Last borne film where he was driving the nypd, holly **** , it had me jumping when he would blast into other cars, especially the part in reverse.

I get the high vote for the remake of the best car chase movie ever filmed. Sure Nic Cage had a decent movie, and the special effects were pretty funny. The NOS button "Go Baby Go" with the chopper....lol it was like watching an old tv show when they just sped up the film to make it look like the car was going fast...lol. But the best ever in the remake was the minute long jump on the bridge, I thought he was going to bring out a sandwich and eat it as he flew through the air. That GT500 was a perfect example of muscle car royalty. It was a great way to bring some sort of the prominence that the real Eleanor had in the original.
Halicki was a one stop shop. He did everything. He wrote, directed, acted, produced, and most importantly he drove the cars during the stunts. I think I read Cage drove a few times and the GT500 was his, but I could be wrong. H.B. Halicki was behind the wheel of that mustang in the original, it was an amazing scene that was over 20 minutes long and was done with one car, and pretty much in one take. Apparently he didn't have the permits to film on the roadways so he did it on a weekend when traffic was low. In the film on a freeway he gets smoked by a citizen not involved in the movie at all, and spins out of control into a guide wire for a light pole at 100 mph. It was left in the movie, most likely cause he got Eleanor running again and kept shooting. For that alone it's an amazing piece of car chase movie history. I don't know of another movie that can claim the same. The real Eleanor was brought to movie openings all over the place, Halicki organized that too because he didn't like the percentage Hollywood took to do it. He was a lot like George Lucas in that regard. I think I'm probably the only vote for the 1974 Gone in sixty seconds, but I think it might be because it was made 40 years ago, and not a lot of people have seen it. I was actually a bit surprised to see it and the original Vanishing Point in the list. It would be neat to see a comparison or vote between the oldies like Dirty Mary Crazy Larry, Two Lane Blacktop(one of my top 5) Gumball Rally, or the Canonball series, Gator,White Lightning, I could keep going...lol I guess I like the original movies because they used real cars and drivers and didn't rely on the green screen and computers too much. If you havn't seen some of those oldies I mentioned check em out you'll prolly like them.

Yeah I did. I thought it was in the vote...lol I loved his fastback! I also left out The Seven Ups, The D Driver, Mad Max and Mad Max The Road Warrior, the third one sucked...he used camels an ****. Eat my dust was pretty much the last movie Opie made (Ron Howard) b4 directing full time. Robert Mitchum starred in a real oldie in 58 caled Thunder Road they did some decent stuff with 55 chevs and cars like that the old flat head 8's lol I think there are a lot more, but I can't think of them right now.

Huge Bourne fan, so if I had to pick from the list, it would be anything with Jason Bourne.

Best fight scene, Bourne Ultimatum

Totally with you on the J.Bourne! I like all 4 even if the last one only says his name..lol I really liked the very first fight scene, in the first movie with the cops in the park. It really showcases the fact that a lot of marshal arts fighting is muscle memory. Matt Damon had such a dumbfounded look on his face when he took out the cops..lol It was like, how the frak did I do that?...lol

Anyone seen the trailer for the Need For Speed movie coming out next Friday? It's hard to believe that the first game in that series, with the same name as the movie, is 20 years old. I still have the original game floppies and box from that game kickin around somewhere...lol. I think it was 4 of those new fangled 3 1/2" floppies.

While I agree with you about Steve McQueen and the movie Bullit, I liked the Charger R/T More than the Mustang GT. I read somewhere that the movie people took the mustang and dulled it down to make look more like a car that a detective could afford in 1968. I liked that car long b4 they destroyed 100's of them to make a T.V. show. Good chase scene too, but it was only 7 minutes long. (
It is still and, IMO will always be, the benchmark for all car chase scenes to follow it!

LONG LIVE THE BULLIT!!

I love your sig dude..lol... my dad had that on a lic, plate holder on his 72 vette. the plate was .....4 fun...he bought it new and was his daily driver till he retired it's got 400,000 miles on it. The last time I was on the island it ran like new.
