    This past weekend, I decided to watch DVDs in my collection which are connected by a common theme~Road Trip!

    Of course, in the movies, nothing ever goes as planned. The Road Trip movies I watched were: Thelma and Louise, The Defiant Ones, Bonnie and Clyde and The Last Detail.

    Which movies about life on the open road do you like? Which ones have disturbed you?

    the Last Detail is one of my favorite movies, my favorite line is when Nicholson says"it takes a certain sadistic mentality to be a Marine" after delivering Meadows to the Portsmouth brig.

    Keroac wrote On The Road on a typewriter with a teletype roll threaded through the carriage. It was basically stream of conscience. How on earth can a screenplay be adapted? Moriarty would be pissed.

    I bought The Last Detail to round out my Hal Ashby collection. What a great surprise! What ever happened to Otis Young (Mule)? Have you seen him in anything else?

    How can one mention road trip movies without thinking of Easy Rider first?

    In my collection I also have Fandango, A Perfect World, and Field of Dreams.... Not your typical road trip fare but all are road trip/buddy movies.
