Tough guys abound in motorcycle movies, making us yearn for the freedom to rev our engines and speed away. Most of us will never be able to try most of the tricks that these characters do with ease—and if you do, make sure your bike is covered, by insuring it through a website like MotorcycleInsurance [dot] com! Unless you have your own personal prop department on standby, that is.
1. TT Special 650 Triumph, ridden by Steve McQueen in “The Great Escape”
McQueen was the epitome of cool, and this movie solidified that reputation by showcasing his motorcycle skills. He performed almost all of his own stunts in the movie, and they were actually added at his suggestion. Let’s all agree that the movie is that much better for it. Could you imagine watching it without seeing McQueen jump the fence?
2. Harley Davidson Fat Boy, ridden by Arnold Schwarzenegger in “Terminator 2: Judgment Day”
He said he’d be back, but who knew he’d look this tough when he arrived? Arnie rode onto this scene on this bad boy, securing his status as one of the top action heroes of all-time.
3. Kawasaki GPz900R, ridden by Tom Cruise in “Top Gun”
Who could forget Tom racing down the road trying to keep up with a jet, or speeding away from Kelly McGillis after she called him out on his grandstanding? No matter what you may think of Tom Cruise now, you know you were a little bit envious of his cocky persona and fast machine.
4. Harley Davidson Hydra-Glide, ridden by Peter Fonda in “Easy Rider”
One of the most iconic movies ever, watching Peter Fonda and Dennis Hopper can still make us long for a time when we could hit the open road with our bikes and experience life with an amazing soundtrack guiding us along. Sure, we could try to now, but would it really be the same as it was during the 1960’s?
5. Triumph Thunderbird, ridden by Marlon Brando in “The Wild One”
Brando was the ultimate tough guy, and his attitude oozed throughout the whole movie as he led his biker gang on a crime spree throughout the entire town. Hey, if you’re going to scare the locals, why not do it in style, right?Read More
Are movie fans growing tired of fast pace action movies? My answers would be maybe. Judging from the 2010-2011, some recent fare didn’t do so well at box office and a recent summer blockbuster “The A-Team” didn’t fare much better and now comes “The Expendables” is coming and I am wondering will this be a hit. “The Losers” and “The A-Team” had the safe PG-13 rating ,but “The Expendables” has got the dreaded rated R, so kids who wanted to go can’t or won’t.
“Salt”, starring kick-butt queen Angelina Jolie did fairly good, but not great for the genre, and one can scan Cardiff cinema listings and not find much better box office outcomes. With the ”Twilight” movies, at least the first two were as boring as hell, and when they threw in a few fighting sequences guys actually went! The great movie “Inception” had plenty of action scenes and was a runaway hit. “Predators” and “Kick Ass“ were rated R and didn’t do a thing at the box office. Why are action flicks not selling? I really don’t know. I am happy that chick flicks are on the rise and becoming very successful, but for action hounds like myself and others what gives?
My theories are:
1- Male action stars are getting old: Bruce Willis, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone are all over fifty! The hottest macho men right now is Jason Statham (Transporter). He is in his late 30’s.
2- Rated R movies ain’t what they use to be. Remember in the 80’s and 90’s there was nothing like seeing evil guys with guns killed by macho good guys with bigger guns? Family movies are taking over which is a good thing, but a little kick ass action doesn’t hurt.
3- Action overkill—maybe before the summer there was a glut of manly movies and that audience was tired.
4- Film goers want more than just mindlessly repetitive violence. This is a good trend. “Inception” makes you think while seeing spectacular action.
This is all I can think of. Can you think of any reasons? I think I will like more movies like “The Expendables” and “Machete” but I doubt these movies will make any money.
Movie buffs all knew that 2011 was set to be a bumper year for the industry and so far it has not disappointed. With cinema goers eagerly anticipating the final instalment in a well loved franchise, and sequels to a number of popular hits, the film industry knew it was bringing some hot offerings to the altar of viewing this year.
So far the most popular movies of 2011 with those visiting apollo cinemas and other venues are unsurprising – with the top box office grossing titles including:
- Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 – the second instalment of the final book of JK Rowling’s wizarding saga marks the end of an era for fans of the books and films. The film was an emotional one for fans and actors alike with many a tear shed on the set an in the cinema seats as the final takes brought to a close the fantasy story of a generation. Lauded as the best of the series – the final film is well worth a watch.
- Transformers: Dark of the Moon – the popular robot/machine franchise did it again this year. Shia LeBoeuf is joined by Rosie Huntington-Whitely after the unceremonious departure of Megan Fox from the multi-million dollar line up.
- The Hangover Part II: You’d think that Alan, Doug, Phil and Stu would’ve learned their lesson in Vegas, but it seems that this is not the case as two years on from the initial stag-night-saga hit the crew head for Thailand and a who new set of pre-wedding problems. Using its own tried and tested format, the second Hangover movie is equally as hilarious as its predecessor – making it unsurprising that the romp was the third biggest box office draw for fans so far this year.
- Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides: Four films in and the Pirates of the Caribbean team is still churning out true blockbusters. In this instalment of the massively successful franchise everyone’s favourite pirate Captain Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp) is joined by starlet Penelope Cruz as they hunt for the elusive Fountain of Youth. Swashbucklingly good stuff all round.
- Fast and Furious 5: Five films in and the Fast and Furious team are still getting it right. Vin Diesel and crew play off criminals against the authorities, with much high-octane adventure as a result. No petrol heads left the cinema disappointed!
- Cars 2: In a year of sequels, it is no surprise that this Disney Pixar offering stormed the box office, with kids (and big kids!) everywhere eager to get the latest on the exploits of Lightning McQueen and friends – who this time round include the voice of veteran Brit actor Michael Caine, who takes on the role of spy svengali Finn McMissile.
- Thor: Kenneth Brannagh’s latest directorial offering takes a stroll into the world of Norse mythology to tell the story of Thor the thunder god, who finds himself send away from the heavenly kingdom of Asgard to live with the mere mortals. He soon assimilates and becomes one of their most powerful defenders – with much action resulting.
- Captain America: The latest in a long line of comic book adaptations stars Chris Evans as the patriot who volunteers as a human guinea pig after being deemed unfit for active duty and turned down by the armed forces. As a result he is turned into the ultimate fighting machine – Captain America.

So many beautifully decorated windows in the style of various films and cartoons.
