Entertainment Weekly lists the top 10 movie car chases. I think they get it pretty right, but I'd swap #1 and #2 (though both are amazing). And I don't know how they left out Gumball Rally or The Italian Job (the original one). I'd certainly take those over Terminator or (gak) Charlie's Angels.
But hey, you can't complain too much about any list that includes Death Race 2000
Now, off to Netflix. Yeah, you. Go. You know you want to.
