What is your favorite movie of all time. Include a clip if you can. You can have two if one is car related and one is not.

My favorite car movie is the original "Cannon Ball Run"

And my favorite uncar related movie is "Independence Day"

I don't have an absolute total favorite, because I like too many damned movies. But the following are way up there-

The Big Lebowski
Uncle Buck
Bad Santa
Thunderbolt and Lightfoot
Old School
The Seven Ups (best car chase ever put on film, bar none.)

But my newest and probably my favorite has to be "The Friends of Eddie Coyle".
I am not exaggerating, it is an absolute MUST SEE if you are from the Boston area, hell, anyplace in New England, and haven't seen it yet. Probably one of the best, most gritty, realistic, and gray crime films ever made, it's like the anti-Godfather/Scarface. There is no protagonist, the whole movie's premise is basically like "not fah nuthin, but it is whut it is"...hahaha

They filmed it all around Boston and it came out in 1973. Ton of cool old footage, they even filmed in Rowe Quarry which used to be near my house on the Malden/Revere line. There's a lot of cool old vintage 60s/70s iron in there too, a Road Runner, 69 Camaro, a bunch of 71-73 Chevrolets (full size of course), some Fords, a LeSabre, and some other randomness. They didn't even use fake license plates.

Robert Mitchum (the main character) absolutely NAILS the accent as well, most people either don't even try and just get a couple of words right, or do it authentically but go WAY overboard like Ben Affleck and company. This guy does it old school style, sort of diluted but omnipresent. "Numbah foah, Bobby Orr..." Oh yeah, there is also vintage Bruins footage in there of a real game where they filmed some scenes in the Garden. I was expecting him to ask for a glass of tonic.
Laughing Peter Boyle is in it too and some other actors that aren't around anymore.

The movie just came out on DVD in June from the Criterion Collection and I bought it instantly because I'd never seen it and had heard about it for ages, the VHS was taken out of print probably 15-20 years ago and it never came out again. It was one of the top movies on all those "Movies you want released on DVD" petitions.

Here's a classic "bitch out" scene from it, priceless!

I'd recommend against trying to watch the whole movie online or clicking on any possible spoilers, it will ruin it for you. Buy the DVD online and have it shipped, it's cheaper.

Dirty Work - Norm McDonald and Arty Lang. VERY bad acting, but I laugh out loud every time I see it, the humor kills me, even if the acting sucks.


1996 Impala SS - 45K original miles - 5.3 LS swap - Brand new Bilsteins...WHAT A DIFFERENCE!

I have several in different categories; Good ole violence and show no mercy to the bad guy: Walking Tall (true story), Death Wish, & Dirty Harry.

On the lighter side: Planes, Trains & Airplanes, & Uncle Buck.

My alltime favorite movie, that I could watch everyday, The Godfather.

Car Related, Steve McQueen and Bullitt.

And finally for a feel good movie, It's a Wonderful Life.

Here is the chase from "The Seven Ups". I don't recommend watching it if you think it will spoil the movie (if you plan on watching it), whatever just watch it!

This is a good chase too, this movie used to be on TV all the time but I haven't seen it in ages:

With out a second thought Ronin.

I love that movie too. I like the older car chases better though because the stunts were more realistic.

I gotta buy Ronin though I haven't seen it in at least a year or two
