ON MOVIES ~ Speed Demons...



Feature Presentation...

MONDAY MOVIE MEME

Molly looked around for a weekly meme about movies and did not have any luck. So therefore she decided to start her own! Andy will play along as well - hopefully you will too. Leave a link to your blog post where you’ve shared your response or, if you don’t have a blog, share your response in the comment section at the end of this post.

This week's movie topic is all about The Chase...

Recently we found ourselves watching The Da Vinci Code (Tom Hanks' bad hair and all) on T.V. As we lamented the fact that there weren't any better viewing choices, along came a little car chase scene that we had forgotten about when we originally saw the film in the theater. Don't believe us? The French chick drives herself and Tom Hanks in a little euro car in reverse through the streets of Paris during a high speed chase and barely misses being squished by converging garbage trucks. A great car chase scene can define a movie, and sometimes even save a bad one. Neither was the case with The Da Vinci Code, but at least it gave us this week's topic. Here are some movies with our favorite chase scenes...what are yours?

Psst! Please don't tell, but it's embarrassing how much I enjoyed Smokey and the Bandit.

Am I losing my mind? I could swear I posted a comment here this morning, but it is not here. Anyway, I could have bet this week you would have asked about the top sports movies, but I was foiled again! My answers are posted, and yes this time I did link back to you! I had more time this morning...

I had to ask my husband about this since I close my eyes on the car chases. I cannot stand them! So here's his list:
1. Bullet with Steve McQueen
2. Bourne Supremacy
3. French Connection
4. 60 Seconds
5. Quantum of Solace
Number 5 was nothing but a big chase movie, in my opinion - cars, boats, planes.
Good meme post, Molly.
