  2. I never professed to be a movie critic but I know what I like and have always enjoyed the old B movies for what they were, a time when the cars, girls and the occasional monster made for cheap cheesy entertainment, sorry but this short missed the mark with this old fart. HRP

    Production quality? What production quality?
    That's 15 minutes of my life I'll definitely have to try to make up somewhere else.
    Thanks a LOT, Ryan.
    I was on the edge of my seat the whole time.
    ...cuz I had to pee.
  6. Cute.:D........Loved both hot rods. It always amazes me though that someone can make a "hot rod" movie and refer to a Model A Coupe as a Roadster. I mean if this were an intentional faux pas written in for the little guy, why didn't the owner correct him instead of repeating it.? Fun to watch, hard to take very seriously. To your credit, Ryan, you did warn us.:)

    weak at best. you would think at the very least they would have cleared the modern cars out of the background shots. and found a 40 without tilt wheel.....

    I kinda liked it, a little more effort would've made it more fun to watch!
    I give the guy credit for trying.

    And the new fangled light switches behind the kid eating breakfast, D'oh!
  12. Just doesn't hold a candle to the old black & white B movies, the hot rods in this movie is what inspires many of us to this day.

    As the old saying goes, when this movie was made I was just a twinkle in my daddy's eye! :D and it's stood up to the test of time. HRP

  13. I liked it. But I also like, fart'en, whoppy cushions, boobies, and put'en baseball cards in my spokes.:rolleyes: I'd give it 2 thumbs up. Cos that's all I've got.:confused:

    Yeah, after seeing that in the opening scene, you pretty much knew what you were in for!
    Good intentions, just a little sloppy with the execution. Gotta give the guy credit for trying something in that style.

    I just thought of something nice to say...........
    The twins actually had the beginnings of acting chops.

    That's all I've got that's "nice". :eek:
