The Ten Coolest Cars in Movie History

8 July 2015 12:53 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Interview | See recent The Hollywood Interview news »

By Alex Simon

Cars have been a staple of motion pictures since the earliest Keystone Kops two-reel comedies a century ago, usually providing fodder for chase scenes and general mayhem. Whether they’re breaking land-speed records, flying through the air defying laws of aerodynamics, or driven by intrepid heroes pursuing bad guys, cars and movies go together like…well, like movies and popcorn.Like movies and tickets. Like cars and tickets. Wait…let’s just get on with the list, shall we?

Here are the ten coolest cars in movie history, in no particular order:

1. Rendezvous: 1976 Mercedes-Benz 450Sel 6.9

Director Claude Lelouch mounted a camera on his 1976 Mercedes and tore through the early morning streets of Paris at breakneck speeds, cheating only slightly in post-production by overdubbing the sound of a Ferrari 275 Gtb engine with that of his Benz’s.

Cinema's Hidden Pearls -- Part II

Cinema’s Hidden Pearls – Part II

By Alex Simon

One of nature’s rarest items, a pearl is produced within the soft tissue (specifically the mantle) of a living shelled mollusk. Just like the shell of a clam, a pearl is composed of calcium carbonate in minute crystalline form, which has been deposited in concentric layers. Truly flawless pearls are infrequently produced in nature, and as a result, the pearl has become a metaphor for something rare, fine, admirable and valuable.

Hidden pearls exist in the world of movies, as well: films that, in spite of being brilliantly crafted and executed, never got the audience they deserved beyond a cult following.

Here are a few more of our favorite hidden pearls in the world of film:

1. Massacre at Central High (1976)

Dutch director, and former cameraman for the legendary Russ Meyer, Rene Daalder was hired by producers to direct an exploitation »

Mad Men season 7 episode 14 review: Person To Person

18 May 2015 10:47 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Mad Men has left the building, and done so with a characteristic blend of tragedy and comedy. Here's our series finale review...

This review contains spoilers.

7.14 Person To Person

Perhaps unusually for a drama so well-versed in existential despair, Mad Men has long had an impeccable sense of humour. That rich history should have been preparation for just how funny the series finale would be, but even this late in the game it seems the show is still capable of taking me by surprise.

Yes, Person To Person dealt with dying, grief and the ultimate disintegration of Don’s psyche, but that’s an average day on Mad Men. It was also a riot. When I wasn’t in emotional pieces over that “Birdie…” “I know” phone call or Sally helping Bobby to make dinner, or Leonard’s monologue, I was in bits over the gags.

It started by teasing »
