Hello, and welcome to the return of the Top 10 lists through Shaun Talks Movies media! Each week, I'll be trying to bring you a brand new list of film-centric fun based on a movie hitting theaters that week.
To kick things off, I'm taking my inspiration from a little movie called Monster Trucks. I can't quite say I'm excited about the prospects of the film itself, but it definitely jogged my idea for creating a list about picture cars. A "picture car" is any vehicle you see on-screen in a film. I've gone through the list of every movie I've seen and have pulled the ten most iconic in my own mind and have created the following list. A quick reminder: I can only use films I have personally seen for these lists, so if you don't see your favorite choice, there's a chance I haven't seen the film. Let me know in the comments below!
In the future, I'll do my best to give each list a little write-up here and there, but for time crunches this week, I'm simply bringing you the list. Enjoy!
10. The Dude's Car
The Big Lebowski (1998)
9. Stuntman Mike's Charger
Death Proof (2007)
Who Framed Roger Rabbit (1988)
7. Frankenstein's Car
Death Race 2000 (1975)
6. V8 Interceptor
Mad Max (1979)
4. The Truck
Animal House (1978)
The Blues Brothers (1980)
Back to the Future (1985)
I want to round things out with some fan contributions! Over on the Facebook Group page, I asked the members for their opinions on the best picture cars, and here's some of the results. If you'd like to vote on the weekly top ten lists, be sure to get yourself added to that group! But once again, here's a brief glimpse at the eclectic range of films mentioned on that group post. I took the liberty of removing the films already mentioned on my own list. I'll find more interesting ways to present the information should I get more concise responses in the future:
Batman: The Movie | Batman | Bullitt | Chitty Chitty Bang Bang | Christine | Cruel Intentions
Dumb & Dumber | Elvira: Mistress of the Dark | Ferris Bueller's Day Off | Goldfinger
Gone in Sixty Seconds | Il Sorprasso | Jurassic Park | Psycho | Smokey and the Bandit
The Muppet Movie | Transformers: The Movie | Vanishing Point
Thank you once again to all those who responded, and be sure to keep an eye out next week for another Top 10 list! Again, I'll hopefully be able to do a little more with the list next week, but this will have to suffice for now.
