What’s going on all – the Somethings are on vacation, but that doesn’t mean you get to be…
What it does mean is that we are diving into the bin of episodes you’ve never heard and popping out with something cool. The only reason I’m mentioning it is that this episode was recorded quite a bit ago. If you are wondering why we’re not social distancing – there’s your reason.
That said – it is going to drive by you at 1.21ghz – we are talking about the things in movies that are the unsung heroes.. the vehicles the heroes drive. From big muscle cars to tricked out sci-fi contraptions, we are about to talk about cars that get you from place A to place B in style or are so cool the whole movie is about them.
Get in, because we got smokeys on our tail!
Ok, here we go!
When you think about the great stars of film, certain names will appear depending what your ‘era’ is.
For those who love big action, big country, big ramblin’ adventures through the raucous movies of the 70’s and 80’s, the name Burt Reynolds is sure to be one of the names that pops up. Whether he was driving a truck on a route that they say can’t be done or making a long bomb down the field, Reynolds was a cinema great in an era when action movies were just finding their footing.
As we’re sure you are aware, last month the world lost Burt Reynolds, and there is a Bandit sized hole left by the former mayor of Steelport.
So hang out with us while we talk about some of our favorite memories of Burt.
We made it to number four, and now to give you the episode that more or less was the concept of this whole damn podcast. Listen as James & Rob talk about Vin Diesel more than two heterosexual men should.
HALF-EPISODE – Part 1
HALF-EPISODE – Part 2
So here’s a new feature that we’re going to try and remember to do as we continue along episodes. BONUS STUFF!
Here’s the pics of Rob’s 4 Horsemen designs:
Hatton’s 7 Deadly Cars:
Lastly – when you get to the end of the episode, the song/sound you are hearing is a montage of gear shifts from the films. I’ve included the video here in case you want to see just how much of these films are made up of people’s feet on pedals.
