This week’s theme seemed so random at first but once I started thinking about cars, and movies where cars sort of play almost like separate characters themselves, I realised there are so many great movies I should mention. So here is a list of movies which highlight cars in a way that showcases them as more valuable than their simple practical functions.
Each of the cars in the movie have a female name which might sound like something a crazy person would do but in this context, having names makes the cars more valuable. And with a very strong cast, during Nicholas Cage’s glory days, Gone in Sixty Seconds delivers such a great car-heist movie that you’ll remember the name Eleanor forever.
For some reason those little Mini Coopers always remind me of The Italian Job. The cars themselves look ridiculous, yet the fact how they were utilized is so badass that you will actually contemplate on buying a Mini Cooper for yourself. I recommend not driving around in the house with it but I mean having the option by owning a Mini Cooper would be so amazing, right!?
A very simple idea of a cop car being stolen by kids turns into a very great movie which deserves more praise than it has gotten. Cop Car is an interesting film that does very little but says quite a lot, and in the middle of it all is a car, a car which causes a lot of trouble.
Sure, I could name the first movie just as well but I thought I’d praise Chapter Two a little here on the blog as well. You see, this movie starts with a very long opening scene where John Wick goes to take back his car. It’s a brutal opening, filled with amazing things, and right there is a car which will look completely different by the time John Wick is done with it… but remember, he loves his car a lot, despite the things he does to it.
