There can be only one!!! Sid and James tackle the 1986 classic Highlander, the story of an immortal, caught in a centuries-long struggle to claim a prize by beheading other immortals. And he drives a Porsche 356 Speedster. A discussion ensues on the virtues and not-virtues of the 356 and we take a look at the other cars of Highlander. We also feel …
 
David Michod's The Rover is a bleak, Australian post-apocalypse story. Sound familiar? It's definitely not Mad Max. Michod's anarchic landscape lacks hope... or even a real hero. The movie is a slog, depressing and gritty from start to finish. It's kind of character piece you would expect from a film that was chosen to be screened at Cannes. James …
 
This is the movie we've been waiting for. This is a story so crazy we're surprised it took this long to become a movie. This is Ford V Ferrari. Joining James and Sid is racecar driver Aditya "Deech" Madhaven as we talk about the incredible story of Carroll Shelby and Ken Miles. Ford V Ferrari is a rare example of a car movie that is so good that it…
 
It's our Halloween episode! It's become traditional at Reels and Wheels to pick a horror movie with a car or two in it to discuss on Halloween and this year it's the movie that gave us the modern definition of zombies - the original Night of the Living Dead (and it's 1990 remake)! Joining Sid and James is their good friend and zombie expert, Derek …
 
Want to cry? Want to be sad? Have we got the movie for you! The Art of Racing in the Rain is a sad movie based on Garth Stein's really sad book of the same name. It chronicles all the sad stuff that happens to Denny, a racecar driver, through the eyes of his dog, Enzo. It does a great job of showing the blue collar side of car racing. And it does a…
 
Breaking the sound barrier. Going to space. The story didn't require a ton of embellishing to make a great movie. These pilots had the right stuff and speed was their life - from the planes they flew to the horses they rode to the cars they drove. Our good friends Josh Horowitz and Brett Stillo from the 5 Minutes of Trouble and 5 Minutes of Banzai …
 
Fans of the original Transformers toys/cartoons finally got the movie they wanted in Bumblebee - the first Transformers movie to diverge from the Michael Bay explosion-fest to bring us back to the 1980's. Sid and James are joined by The Salty Seaman, Gabriel Owens, host of the Military Bulls**t podcast in this co-branded episode. Bumblebee kind of …
 
Did you know that a young, often shirtless Tommy Lee Jones starred in a 1986 heist movie with Linda Hamilton where they had to steal a Knight Rider-esque concept car? Neither did we! Thanks to our friend and guest from Plaid Dad Blog, Christian Lee for turning us on to this obscure movie that's so packed with 1980's tropes you'll automatically grow…
 
In this mini-episode, James and Sid do something different - reviewing the trailers for two upcoming movies, Ford vs. Ferrari and The Art of Racing in the Rain. Ford vs. Ferrari is basically covers everything James and Sid always argue about and The Art of Racing in the Rain is about a dog. Both are exciting in their own way. @ReelsandWheels - iTun…
 
Ask anybody to name the greatest cars in TV history and the list is often topped by the General Lee. Controversy over confederate imagery aside, the Duke boys and their 1968 Dodge Charger somehow struck a chord with car lovers everywhere. The first episode of The Dukes of Hazzard is a lot more adult-oriented because the show runners had no idea it …
 
Some background on this episode - Last time we had Steve Lehto on the podcast (for Tucker: The Man and his Dream), we started talking about the Chrysler Turbine Car. It was Steve who told us it actually was center stage in an obscure movie, so... Steve Lehto of Lehtoslaw.com joins us once again to discuss The Lively Set! This 1964 movie is almost a…
 
An episode of Reels and Wheels about Star Trek? Thanks to the classic gangster episode from season 2, absolutely! James and Sid let out their inner Trekkie and geek out for the Cadillac V-12 that Captain Kirk attempts to drive. A Piece of the Action represents everything good and bad about the original Star Trek. The episode was hokey, but it made …
 
This is our first episode covering a movie from the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and joining us for the occasion is one of our favorite guests, Ed Carden - a resident MCU expert and member of the Pushers comedy troupe! Ant Man and the Wasp shows a light-hearted, fun side of the MCU and we like it because it takes playing with Matchbox Cars to a whole…
 
It's a movie about the guy making the movie that references his other movies. H.B. Halicki gave us the classic movie "Gone in 60 Seconds." That gave him enough movie to film himself crashing cars over and over again and show off his collectibles while a flimsy "plot" happened around him. The Junkman - It's a bad movie, but it's still kind of fun to…
 
The 80's was all about exploiting our fear of the power of computers and Weird Science, another John Hughes classic, is a modern-day Frankenstein playing to our fear of keyboards, CRT monitors and phone modems. High school nerds Gary and Wyatt use a computer to create the perfect girl (and Kelly LeBrock fits that part nicely), who provides them wit…
 
Reels and Wheels celebrates Halloween by sitting down on Halloween night and talking about Quentin Tarantino's tribute to classic Grindhouse movies, Death Proof! Death Proof is a Horror/Thriller for car guys, layered with references to all the great classic car chase movies covered on this podcast, like Vanishing Point, Dirty Mary Crazy Larry, and …
 
On this episode Reels and Wheels pays tribute to the late Burt Reynolds with a great movie - White Lightning. Joining us once again is racer, writer & comic JG Pasterjak! White Lightning celebrates the ethos of running moonshine and was one the cutting edge of the "small town with corrupt sheriff" movie trope. Smuggling moonshine is how NASCAR was …
 
Diamonds are Forever! It was Sean Connery's last official James Bond movie (not counting the non-Eon Never Say Never Again) and it was an interesting mixture of classy and campy; providing a precursor to the Roger Moore era. It also had some interesting car choices - A Triumph Stag, a 1971 Mustang Mach I and a moon buggy created by legendary car cu…
 
Son, you got a panty on your head. Raising Arizona - a masterpiece of a comedy/satire from the Coen brothers is a memorable, quotable and purely enjoyable movie from a time when Nicolas Cage wasn't just a walking punchline. Kyle Phalen (who previously joined us for Rain Man) joins us to talk about the movie and gets an education on Malaise Era cars…
 
Cobra (1986) is an 80's cop movie that you can absolutely love (in theory) if you get past how reprehensible it is. Sylvester Stallone is a cop who plays by his own rules. His peers don't like the fact that he kills everyone he should be arresting, but they let it go because he "gets the job done." Joining us to talk Cobra and its iconic 1950 Mercu…
 
Wax on, wax off! The Karate Kid (1984) is a classic that still inspires people today and is still talked about - and it's a great car movie to boot. From Mrs. Larusso's Chevelle wagon to Johnny Lawrence's Avanti II to Mr. Miyagi's collection of 1940's classics, cars were almost as integral to The Karate Kid as... well, Karate. Learn a lot of intere…
 
The apocalypse happens. Jan-Michael Vincent is pretty chill about it. George Peppard suggests driving from southern California to Albany, New York in an armored all-terrain vehicle. They do that. Movie over. Improv comic and movie buff James Roach joins James and Sid to talk about Damnation Alley, a movie where NOTHING HAPPENS. Enjoy long scenes wh…
 
Remember when they did a post-apocalyptic pilot for a new Knight Rider series that never got picked up? Probably not. Knight Rider 2010 was part of a group of attempts at syndicated shows called the Action Pack. Unlike the Action Pack's successes (Hercules, Xena), it never got to be a series - but at least we got this bizarre pilot! Ed Carden of Th…
 
It's the movie that kicked off the most prolific car movie franchise ever - The Fast and the Furious. It's a wake up call to the world - the tuner community has arrived and it's time to accept it. Sid and James are joined by Kristen Lee of Jalopnik to talk about the influence this movie had on car culture and whether it was a good thing or a bad th…
 
Ok, maybe it doesn't make sense to leave an unstable prototype alone in a warehouse where anyone can reactivate it without at least taking the wheels off, but dammit KARR was awesome. The original Knight Rider gave us two episodes featuring KITT's evil prototype, the Knight Automated Roving Robot (KARR!) and each featured a different take on what w…
 
Cars 3... Is it a shameless cash grab to sell toys or an homage to the fans of the first movie? The answer is probably both. The Cars universe expands quite a bit with plenty of great new toys to sell to your kids. However, Cars 3 also goes back to the successful formula that made the first movie a hit. Sound familiar? It's taken the same path as t…
 
Sure, it's a stoner movie. But it's a stoner movie with character growth, literary significance, great dialogue and some insightful car choices. Heck, how often do we get to do an episode of Reels and Wheels where the hero car is a Toyota Camry? It was time! It was the Camry's time! Sure, it's boring and it's basic, but that's the point. If you nee…
 
Hey, look! It's a new movie that is supposed to be like "The Fast & The Furious" but in France! Let's watch it and talk about it on Reels and Wheels! ...and that's where things went downhill. Overdrive (2017) sucks. The dialogue is terrible, the plot makes no sense, and whoever wrote it clearly wasn't really a car person. But we watched it. We suff…
 
How do you bring NASCAR to a mainstream audience in movie form? Tom Cruise, I guess. I mean, it beats Stroker Ace. Days of Thunder was actually the last of an era - the last time producers Jerry Bruckheimer and Don Simpson got to do a high budget action movie before the studio got too mad at them to do it again. There is a lot to love, though - the…
 
Sid and James are joined by their good friends Josh Horowitz and Brett Stillo of the "5 Minutes of Banzai" podcast for a quintessential cult classic - The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension! If you're a Reels and Wheels listener, you probably remember Josh and Brett from the Big Trouble in Little China episode and their "5 Minut…
 
It was the car of the future! In the late 1940's, a charismatic man named Preston Tucker got America excited about his innovative, futuristic car design... Sid and James welcome Steve Lehto, attorney, author and automotive journalist to talk about Tucker: The Man and His Dream, Francis Ford Coppola's surprisingly accurate portrayal of a man who sol…
 
Phantasm is a brilliant horror movie that bends reality and deals with heavy situations of confronting mortality and loss. It's also got a kick-ass 1971 HemiCuda that went on to become a mainstay vehicle of the Phantasm movie series. For this episode, James and Sid are honored to be joined by one of the stars of the Phantasm series, Reggie Banniste…
 
Could this be the greatest movie ever? At Reels and Wheels, we don't need to spend a lot of time extolling the virtues of Evil Dead 2 - Sam Raimi's brilliant directing and visuals, Bruce Campbell's amazing physical acting skill - it speaks for itself. We're just here to talk about a special 1973 Oldsmobile Delta 88. Alan Vannucchi - comedian and ho…
 
In 1991, Ridley Scott took a break from directing stuff like Alien and Blade Runner and allowed himself to be convinced to helm Thelma and Louise - and that was history. Joining Sid and James is a great friend and hilarious comedian, Holly Owens. Thelma and Louise is an iconic feminist road movie. It's a slice of life on film that is beautifully sh…
 
If you were anywhere near childhood in the 1980's, KITT was probably your hero and Knight Rider was probably the greatest TV show EVER. At least, that's how Sid & James felt then and still feel today. Christian Lee of PlaidDadPlog.com and DadSews.com joins Sid and James to talk about Knight of the Phoenix, the pilot that began KITT's illustrious TV…
 
GoldenEye was a turning point for the James Bond Franchise - both in terms of actors and cars! After years of delay, Pierce Brosnan was finally able to step into the roll he was born to play in a movie that represents a generational shift in the franchise. GoldenEye also marks the first of a three-movie deal with BMW to provide the trademark James …
 
Ok, we admit it. This is a super fun movie. Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby features Will Ferrell in full Will Ferrell mode. In retrospect, the guy is extremely funny. What really knocks this movie out of the park is an excellent supporting cast, most of whom are playing against type. Joining Sid and James to talk about this movie and t…
 
A touch of creativity and the help of a good writer COULD HAVE produced a noteworthy sequel to one of the greatest car movies of all time, Smokey and the Bandit. Instead, everybody failed. Our hero Hal Needham failed to produce anything more than a week retread of the previous movie, our stars (with the exception of Jerry Reed) failed to show much …
 
Edgar Wright has created a masterpiece. This kick-ass car movie isn't just set to music... it's part of the music. Baby Driver goes a step beyond when it comes to car chase choreography and it's a car movie with great characters and plenty of fun easter eggs. Ed Carden of The Pushers (owners of The Push Comedy Theater) once again joins James and Si…
 
The Love Bug... Cute Disney movie? Yes. Awesome racing movie? Even more so, yes! Sid and James are joined by Jason Torchinsky of Jalopnik to talk about the movie that started the Herbie franchise, the awesome cars that played supporting roles, and the surprisingly great racing scenes of The Love Bug. Not only is Jason a writer for Jalopnik, but he'…
 
YES IT'S A CAR MOVIE! Sorry. We've already had that question a few times before people even knew we were recording this episode. Comedian/Member of Plan B Improv and friend of the show CB Wilkins joins James and Sid to talk about Spaceballs! In this epic Mel Brooks comedy, the Star Wars universe is parodied so well that George Lucas himself blessed…
