TheErikWilliams: Top Ten list of Great Car Chase Movies

Stacks Image 10225
10) Lethal Weapon 2 (1989) - One, it starts out with a car chase. Actually, it starts in the middle of a car chase. Which means, it's awesome from the start. Later, it has a chase where a surf board pretty much decapitates someone. Yeah, pretty sweet.

9) The Hidden (1987) - Oh, what's that. An '80's B-Movie with a cool car chase? Oh, yeah. Watch out for the wheel chair!
Stacks Image 10249
8) Terminator 2 (1991) - As much as this movie pisses me off on many fronts, I still tip the cap to the semi chase.
Stacks Image 10246
7) The French Connection (1971) - You know, because it's legendary and all.
Stacks Image 10243
6) The Package (1989) - What? There's a Gene Hackman chase better than The French Connection? Why, yes, there is. Little scene and under appreciated, The Package is a great cold war thriller pitting Hackman against ruthless assassin...Tommy Lee Jones. And Gene is driving to save the world from WWIII and shit.

5) Drive (2011) - The opening is just pure awesomeness. The robbery scene later is...pure awesomeness. Yeah, I love this flick.
Stacks Image 10237
4) Death Proof (2007) - Yeah, it's pretty damn good. Even when you want to yell at the screen, "Shut the fuck up chicks!"
Stacks Image 10234
3) Road Warrior (1982) - Pretty much the whole flick.
Stacks Image 10231
2) Robocop (1987) - Okay, not really a chase. But a car does hit a dude melting from toxic waste exposure and he fucking explodes!
Stacks Image 10228
1) Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981) - Yeah, I guess it's not necessarily a chase as much as a pursuit but...fuck it. It's awesome and there are cars involved.

Notice the lacks of car chases set in Europe (Ronin, Bourne)? I love those chases. But I think the tight narrow streets and small cars allow those chases to be rather deceptive. Just sayin'.

No way Ronin has superior car chases in it. Bourne are meh but Ronin is well put together with the Audi a6 chase. Also if you like The Driver and Thief both are way better.

Max Heller's: Top Ten list of Great Car Chase Movies

Stacks Image 2364

10) The Blues Brothers (1980) - When I was a kid my dad took me to see this. At the time they set a record by wrecking 103 cars. I think Michael Bay owns the record now with 300 and something.
Stacks Image 2546

9) Smokey and the Bandit (1977) - Probably one of my absolute favorite films growing up as a kid. A ton of cars were wrecked in this one by the Bandit and the Snowman. Ya gotta respect the Hal Needham.
Stacks Image 3584

8) Mad Max (1979) - Awesome Aussie effort, filmakers are still learning how to shoot car chases from this little gem. Watch a stunt man get hits neck broken by a sliding motorcycle. Ouch!
Stacks Image 3581

7) The Road Warrior (1982) - Known around the world as Mad Max 2 it is superior to the first one in its car-nage and stunts. Watch a stunt man get his legs broken, you'll know it when you see it.
Stacks Image 3578

6) Bullitt (1968) - Steve McQueen races a 68 Mustang GT against a 68 Charger RT throughout the streets of San Francisco. Oh and Steve McQueen did some of his own driving too, which is just one of many reasons why he was more man than you are.

5) Deathproof (2007) - Kurt Russell was cool as hell even before he climbed in an old Nova and became a psycho. You have to sit through a lot of chatty chick talk but in the end its worth it. yay! Girl power!
Stacks Image 2570

4) Gone in 60 seconds (1974) - Before Nicolas Cage acted all wide eyed and crazy in the remake, this was a 70's movie made by a nutty actor/stuntman/director named HB Halicki. Lots of steel being crunched in this one…some of it unintentional.
Stacks Image 2573

3) Dirty Mary Crazy Larry (1974) - Sounds like a porn title, and it probably should be. There are a lot of nice 70's muscle cars doing what they were built for in this film. Awesome shocker of an ending too and an all time favorite of mine.
Stacks Image 3279

2) Fast and the Furious 5 (2011) - One of my new favorite car chase movies, and yes most of it is real stunts and not digital CGI crap.
Stacks Image 2605

1) Ronin (1998) - I fell in love with this 70's throwback action film when I first saw it. I still think it has two of the best car chases put to film.

Max Hellers: Top Ten Ridiculous Movie Sequel Titles

Stacks Image 4481
10) Wall Street Money Never Sleeps (2010) - Money may not sleep but Oliver Stone sleepwalked through this terrible film. Even the title was phoned in.
Stacks Image 4606
9) I still know what you did last summer (1998) - Really? Well I guess it seems like a natural title for a sequel to a terribly titled film.
Stacks Image 4603
8) Under Siege 2: Dark Territory (1995) - Oooohhhhhhhh I'm shakin in my boots fat Steven Segal. Its a Daaaaaaarrrrrk Territory spooky!
Stacks Image 4546
7) Tyler Perry's (insert movie title here) (every year) - Someone keeps buying lots of tickets to these things and justifying more cross dressing nonsense.
Stacks Image 4543
6) Friday the 13th part VIII Jason Takes Manhattan (1989) - Wow as terrible as this is, its my favorite movie in this list.
Stacks Image 4540
5) Wild Orchid 2: Two Shades of Blue (1991) - I think Zalman King held a contest and a child came up with this title.
Stacks Image 4503
4) Leprechaun Back 2 Tha Hood (2003) - This title speaks volumes of bad, yet if you simply added, Mutha Fucka, at the end it would have been the best title ever.
Stacks Image 4472
3) Breakin' 2 Electric Boogaloo (1984) - I'm torn this might belong on the list of best movie titles ever. As a point of reference I refer to all films with a 2 in them as Electric Boogalo or some variation such as: The Patriot, should have been; Braveheart 2 Redcoat Boogaloo.
Stacks Image 4478
2) City Slickers II: The Legend of Curly's Gold (1994) This belongs on so many bad lists, not just for title. I believe this was when Billy Crystal magically became that un-funny guy we all pretend to love.
Stacks Image 4475
1) The Howling 2: You're Sister is a Werewolf (1985) I believe this was inspired by 8 year old Joey McManus of Weehawken New Jersey, who's friend had a 13 year old sister with a mustache. Originally titled Dude Where's Your Sister the Werewolf.
