The most underrated car movies
Car movies are a genre unto themselves. They have been around since the early days of cinema, and there are entire sub-genres dedicated to them. But which ones are the best? The most popular car movies tend to be the ones that are the most overblown and spectacle-filled, but there are plenty of underrated car movies out there that are worth your time. Here are a few of the most underrated car movies that you may have missed.
The first on our list is The Love Bug (1968). This movie is about a Volkswagen Beetle that comes to life and develops a personality of its own. It’s a classic Disney film that has some great racing scenes and is just overall a lot of fun. It’s one of those rare family films that can be enjoyed by all ages.
Next on our list is Two-Lane Blacktop (1971). This movie is about two drag racers (played by James Taylor and Dennis Wilson of The Beach Boys) who travel across the country in their ’55 Chevy to races. It’s a very stripped down movie, but it’s also one of the most realistic portrayals of drag racing ever put on film.
Another underrated car movie is Vanishing Point (1971). This movie is about a man who makes a bet that he can cross the country in under 15 hours in his Dodge Challenger. What follows is an epic journey that includes some of the most jaw-dropping driving scenes ever put on film. If you’re a fan of high-octane action, this is one car movie you shouldn’t miss.

The most influential car movies
Cars have been around for over a century now, and they’ve been a staple in pop culture just as long. It’s no surprise, then, that there have been plenty of car movies made throughout the years. From early classics like ‘The Italian Job’ to more recent hits like ‘The Fast and the Furious’ franchise, car movies have had a major impact on popular culture. But which ones are the most influential? Here’s a look at some of the most influential car movies of all time.
‘The Italian Job’ (1969)
One of the earliest and most influential car movies, ‘The Italian Job’ is a heist classic starring Michael Caine. The movie features an action-packed chase scene that has gone down in history as one of the best car chase scenes ever filmed.
Another early classic, ‘Bullitt’ is renowned for its iconic car chase scene between a Dodge Charger and a Ford Mustang. The scene is widely considered to be one of the best ever filmed, and it helped to set the standard for all future car chases in movies.
‘The Fast and the Furious’ franchise (2001-present)
A more recent entry on this list, ‘The Fast and the Furious’ franchise has had a major impact on popular culture. The franchise has popularized street racing and helped to make cars cool again for a new generation. With eight movies released so far and more in development, there’s no sign of the franchise slowing down any time soon.
The most forgettable car movies
There are plenty of great car movies, but for every “Fast and the Furious,” there’s a “Gone in 60 Seconds.” For every “Cars,” there’s a “Wheels.” From “Herbie: Fully Loaded” to ” Driven,” car movies have been a extends beyond just good driving and excellent cinematography.
But what makes a great car movie? Is it the cars themselves? The driving? The stunts? The story? Or is it something else entirely? Join us as we explore the most forgettable car movies ever made.
The most controversial car movies
Car movies are a controversial genre. Some people love them, some people hate them. But there’s no doubt that they’re popular.
For every Fast and Furious movie, there’s a movie like Cars that tries to appeal to a more family-friendly audience. And for every classic like Bullitt, there’s a new entry into the genre like The Fate of the Furious.
So how many car movies are there? That’s a harder question to answer than you might think. There are the obvious ones, like Smokey and the Bandit and The Italian Job. But what about movies where cars are a key part of the plot, but not the focus? For example, is Mad Max: Fury Road a car movie? It’s certainly about cars, but it’s also about so much more.
The answer is that it’s hard to say how many car movies there are. But what we can say is that there are enough car movies to fill up an entire list of the most controversial ones.

1. Bullitt (1968) – The mother of all car chase scenes features a 1968 Ford Mustang GT390 driven by Steve McQueen chasing a 1968 Dodge Charger R/T 440 through the streets of San Francisco.

3. Smokey and the Bandit (1977) – Burt Reynolds stars as the title character, an outlaw trucker who is hired to transported Coors beer from Texas to Georgia.
