Ripley's movie review

It's much funnier than the remake (although I could have done without Coward's over-the-top scenes), the stunt driving is impressive, and I really liked the way it ended. Worth watching.

Newt's movie review

That was probably the longest car commercial I've seen and definitely with some of the most spectacular driving. It was a lot fun, a lot of silly, and a whole lot of whacky unexpectedness. Kind of unexpectedly good. Check it out.
