With the Coronavirus meaning we are not out and about as much at the moment, we thought we would update our list of favourite driving films for all of you to enjoy. For added fun, try getting your friends to watch at the same time so you can discuss them too and treat it like a virtual film club!
If you are a lover of all things car related then you need to check these films out:
The Fast and the Furious
This is a classic movie and has something in it for everyone. A great (looking) cast, fantastic fast cars and loads of high-speed racing. There are now 8 movies in total, plus one spin-off , and we definitely recommend watching them all. We hear a movie marathon coming on.
The Fast and the Furious is available to rent on Youtube.
Baby Driver roared onto our screens in 2017 and has solidifed itself as a thrilling heist film featuring one of the greatest getaway driving scenes in film history. Helmed by Edgar Wright and with a medley of A-listers and the soundtrack to boot, Baby Driver is definitely not one to miss if you enjoy high-octane action.
Baby Driver is available to rent on Youtube.
This is not only great for driving fans but also Ryan Gosling fans. This is an action packed movie and a great example of when a book to film adaptation works. The classic cars in this movie won’t disappoint any car lover and, without giving too much away, the chase scene is enthralling and will leave you on the edge of your seat.
Drive is available to rent on Youtube.
Jason Statham is simply fantastic in these movies. Just like The Fast and the Furious, Transporter has been made into a series of movies and there are now 4 in total, all equally as good as each other! He is an expert driver who gets paid to transport cargo, but of course the road is far from smooth.
The Transporter is available to rent on Youtube.
This cute little movie is perfect for the whole family. This is basically The Fast and the Furious, but in animation style and Pixar have got it spot on if you ask us. It is a charming colourful movie. There is also a sequel for those that loved the first as much as we did!
Cars is available to rent on Yotube.
The Italian Job
A car classic. This flashy film won’t fail to impress it is packed with action, drama, romance and classic cars. There is also a recent remake of it but we definitely recommend the original. “PUT YOUR FOOT DOWN!” and get this movie on.
The Italian Job is available to rent on Youtube.
Dude, where’s my car?
Ok, this one is just for fun. If you just want some lighthearted teenage humour, then this is the one to watch. It’s silly from start to finish and Ashton Kutcher and Seann William Scott are comedy gold.
Dude, where’s my car? is available to rent on Youtube.
We hope these recommendations can provide some entertainment whilst we are all practicing social-distancing, so happy watching from all of us at Shiply!
