    Default Road Movies


    I'm trying to start a collection of road movies at home, any suggestions? Foreign movies accepted!

    I already own these ones :

    Thelma & Louise, Boys on the Side, Bagdad Cafe, U-Turn, The Mexican

    Quebec-Montreal, Le Grand Serpent du monde, Un 32 août sur Terre


  2. Default Road Movies, kind of....

    The Great Race

    Star Man

    The Sweetest Thing

    National Lampoon's Vacation

    Rain Man

    The Sure Thing

    Pontiac Moon

    I have so many films that are about QUESTS -- they're not in automobiles -- but they ARE "road" movies in a sense. I guess for some reason it is my favorite theme!

    Default Quest movies


    I do think most road movies don't actually take place on the road, as akward as it sounds. It's the general idea of a film that makes it a "road movie" or a quest movie like you said.

    Hi Everybody,
    This is my first post here and currently (June 2005) I am one of the recent members of this "family" ;)

    Here are some which I recall:

    "The Hitcher"

    "Road Kill" (or Joyride)


    (These are all suspense movies...)

    Oh and of course, "Roadtrip" (Comedy)

    I'll post more if I remember!

    Default Netflix

    I just did some checking and most, if not all, of these titles can be rented through Netflix. We are supporters of this company ever since we did an early review of their services.

    thanks for the post,

    Default David Lynch

    Two from the weird auteur David Lynch:

    - Wild at Heart

    - The Straight Story

    The first is a postmodern masterpiece, the second is one of the cutest stories ever!

    Default What about Bing and Bob???

    The "Road" Movies with Bing Crosby, Bob Hope and Dorothy Lamour. I grew up with those and still find myself humming "The Road to Morroco" every so often.

    Also the movie "Cars" really made me want to go and explore Route 66. But "Romeo and Juliet" also made me want to go and explore Verona, so I guess I'm easily led astray by the locations where movies took place.

    Default Vertigo

    I don't know if this would count as a road movie, since it
    takes place in one regional area, but Vertigo visits many
    famous locations from Big Basin State Park, SanFrancisco
    to Mission San Juan Bautista.

    The City is like another character in the movie.

    The movie has always been a favorite of mine and a big
    part of the appeal is the the way San Francisco and the
    Bay Area are featured.
