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 thing.
So... how about the movie itself? Good? Bad? Unrealistic? Is it okay that the racing is unrealistic? Should we just relax and enjoy this movie for what it is?

On this episode, James and Sid tackle Battle Truck. It's a movie about a TRUCK that's (get this...) equipped for BATTLE.
This post apocalyptic Max Mad/The Road Warrior wannabe actually had it's US release one month before The Road Warrior. It's got everything that made Mad Max successful - an ambitious director with a vision, a cool truck and a, um, villain. Only difference is that Battle Truck is terrible.
Well, James enjoyed it. Sid likens it to the Negan storyline of Walking Dead TV show, but without the zombies. Which is bad.
But hey, the truck is cool so there's that.
