That’s right, no Nicolas Cage or Angelina Jolie. This film was my inspiration to becoming a filmmaker. H.B. “Toby” Halicki owned a junkyard and decided he wanted to make the greatest car chase film ever made. He used his own money and wrote, produced, directed, distributed and starred in the cult classic Gone In 60 Seconds. Halicki even did a lot of stunt driving in the film that boasts a 45 minute chase scene in which dozens of vehicles are destroyed as a result of the police trying to stop Halicki in his 1973 Yellow Mach I Mustang “Eleanor”. That flashy ’67 Shelby from the 2000 remake…

That flashy ‘67 Shelby from the 2000 remake can stick it. Fun fact, that’s not even a REAL Shelby Mustang in the remake! If you’re into REAL classic muscle cars and 70s B-Grade cinema, look no further than the original Gone in 60 Seconds.

Yes I am aware that I’ve listed Part 7 and not the first movie. This was one of the first horror films I viewed. As a 4 year old that was watching Alfred Hitchcock Presents and Tales From the Crypt, it was inevitable that I would stumble across the slasher film genre. Luckily, Kane Hodder’s portrayal of hockey masked Jason Voorhees welcomed me in with open zombie arms. This film was brutal and held no punches with its story and violence.

When I later found out that the script went through several alterations and the R-rated released film was nothing like the X-rated original cut, I felt robbed but I can still look back and say, yeah, that’s my favorite slasher film.

3rd Rocky

To hell with Gone With the Wind and Casablanca. I’m going out on a limb and saying that this is the greatest average joe’s love story in existence. The feeble minded Rocky falling in love with shy and quiet Adrian makes for a timeless romance that manages to grab its audience while revolving around a brutal boxing match pitting the most unlikely underdog against the undisputed champion of the world. The sequels are okay but this here is gold!
