5 car movies to watch this weekend
It’s Labor Day Weekend, which means a lot of us are about to have one extra day of freedom on top of our normally scheduled break. What are your plans? According to the weather forecasters, it might rain (but who knows – it IS Florida). If you can’t get your dose of fun in the sun, it’s always good to have a backup plan. That’s why we’ve created this quick list of five of our favorite car movies for you to stream this weekend!
1. Cars: In need of a family-friendly movie night? Check out Cars from Pixar. Not only will the kids love this exciting and hilarious animated film, you’ll love being able to see the different personalities given to the various makes and models of cars. Plus, there’s always a life lesson thrown in when you watch a Disney movie… so queue up the Blu-Ray player!
2. Ford v. Ferrari: If you like 20th century history and are a fan of Christian Bale or Matt Damon, this is the flick for you. Ford v Ferrari won an Academy Award for its portrayal of the Le Mans Race of 1966. The biopic not only has a dramatic storyline, but also stunning scenic shots and a healthy dose of vintage cars.
3. Any of the Fast and Furious movies: If you want something fun, light-hearted, and even laughable at some points, check out any or all of the Fast and Furious franchise. These movies are absolutely action-packed, full of celebrities and iconic cars, and have soundtracks that will make you want to start a throwback playlist on Spotify. If you start with number one, you’ll be able to spot the iconic Toyota Supra driven by Paul Walker (RIP). From there, you’ll have nine more movies to make it a marathon day if you so choose.
4. Baby Driver: It’s not what it sounds like; this action-packed and thrilling movie is all about the thrill of the getaway scene and features big stars like Ansel Elgort, Jon Bernthal, Jon Hamm, Lily James, Kevin Spacey, Jamie Foxx, and more. It also has a killer soundtrack, so make sure your surround sound is hooked up and ready to go.
5. Bumblebee: Are you a fan of Transformers? Then you’ll love this iconic coming-of-age movie about Bumblebee, a transformer in disguise as a Volkswagen Beetle. Actually, you’ll probably love it even if you’re NOT a fan of the Transformers franchise. It’s exciting, funny, and heart-warming AND set to a great soundtrack.
