why, after all these years of making movies, do the writers/producers/editors/directors feel that it is still necessary to burden half the movie with a car chase scene? can we please be done with the chase scenes, or at the least prune them down to a minute a piece or something? please!!!

I prefer a good love scene any day
or a good fight  
I only like the car stuff, when the movie is actually about cars

what movie set you off Christopher?

i actually thought of this several days ago when i watched "The One" with Jet Li. it was a pretty good movie, with some really good graphics... but they still ahd to throw in an old fashioned car chase.

drives me nuts (pardon the pun)

No car chases in Moulin Rouge...

Maybe that's why.

Brotherhood Sharon? Brotherhood?

Ack.

No car chases in Stealing Beauty. AND that has Liv in it.

Methinks someone was being hyperbolic...guess you wouldn't like Gone In Sixty Seconds or The Fast and the Furious then?

heh.
