Here are the MotorMouthRadio-Approved Motorcycle (Culture) Movies:

  1. Easy Rider (1968): This one seems to rise to the top of the heap on most lists. This all-time classic biker buddy flick is light on action but high on existentialism. More of a psychedelic drug plot than a rough and tumble stereotypical biker film, this one turns out real bad for the stars and gave me a respect for shotguns.
  2. Hells Angels Forever (1966): With a cast of H.A. club members & music from Jerry Garcia, Johnny Paycheck & Bo Diddley, this movie is the “true story of an American phenomenon”.
  3. It’s a Revolution, Mother (1969) originally titled “Biker Babylon” There’s footage from an anti-Vietnam peace rally in Washington D.C., and a free concert held somewhere in Florida, but the real reason to watch this flick is the coverage the 1% club The Aliens from NJ are featured in. If you like Panhead choppers & gritty clubhouse conversation this is the one for you.
  4. Electra Glide in Blue (1973): Bored with traffic duty a bike cop gets re-assigned to the Homicide Division. Along with Robert Blake, Peter Cetera (bassist & lead singer of the Rock/Blues/Jazz band Chicago), plays Bob Zemko. A character named “the Beard” is played by an actor whose real name is Bob Zemko. Cops in the movie ride 1970 Harley Davidson Electra Glides…hence the title. Blake didn’t like the title and instead preferred “Chopper Coppers”. Fans of this popular garbage barge ride will be in 7th heaven after watching the road footage found within.

Here are the MotorMouthRadio-Approved Car (Culture) Movies (UPDATED 10/10/18):

  1. Two-Lane Blacktop (1971) - This is the A#1 car movie on this gearheads list. The 55 Chevy used for road shots is a true ground pounding, noisy & visceral big block powered machine backed by a "Rock Crusher" M22 4-speed and although it's not mentioned in anything I've read, the car probably had the hot rear end of the day for strength, an Olds 3rd member. The main characters are all brooding, dark sorts which does nothing to overshadow the true star of the movie. More... Movie Trailer here.
  2. American Graffiti (1973) - This is a story about the last night of fun for a pair of college bound Californians. Although not made to be car-centric, this movie has become one of the go-to movies for people who dig car movies. MMR says, this movie plays like a Disney film next to Two Lane with the saving grace being that the cars Do overshadow the clean cut stars in many instances.
  3. Gumball Rally (1976) - A cross country race made by a myriad of entrants in a wide variety of cars, this movie combines a comedic slant with some real at-speed road racing.
  4. Bullitt (1968) - Essentially a cop movie where the main character happens to use his personal car in pursuit of the bad guys, Bullitt is known for it's ten minute fifty three second chase scene which made this movie legendary....especially if you're not a fan of Dodge Chargers.
  5. Gone in 60 Seconds (1974) - NOT the remake.
