Default Midnight Movie

At TDIFest 2004 we had a midnight movie session on Saturday where the new and old Italian Job was screened. We were wondering what kind of interest there would be for a repeat of this and if there were any suggestions for movies/themes. It wouldn't actually start at midnight, but probably when people started arriving back from the Victory Brewery tour.

Automotive related would be the #1 item and VW or Diesel #2. Someone mentioned to me the 24 hours of Lemans with the Audi TDI, but I think that might be a little too long....

We can show the RallyVW crew doing Pikes Peak, but I'm looking for some other suggestions and general interest at this point in this. Strange that we've got more suggestions from people than those actually interested enough to click Yes on the above poll...

With enough beer would it really matter?

I was actually thinking Transporter 2 also. The A8 is pretty sweet.

If only someone had DVD's of like 5th gear. Amazing show and pretty funny. The episode where they try and get 40 mpg's in the A8 with the v8 diesel was great.

I have the Top Gear DVD: Revved up.
I havent seen it in a long time but I remember is a funny and silly topgear production, they were doing silly tricks with rediculous cars. exotics, trucks, superminis etc. Check this link, they describe every scene:Virgin Megastore and here is the AMAZON UK listing with reviews.

If you dont buy Topgear magazine at barnes and nobles or Borders every month you need a doctor :P
I have the original PAL version and made a NTSC version by changing the IFO properties (which means it will not work in Sony DVD players circa 2004).
I have a very good LG Divx/DVD player that plays all formats too.t is originally in PAL.

I definatly recommend watching something fun and not watching something cheesy just because it has VAG cars in it. But if thats what people want then I guess we need to watch I ROBOT which has the AUDI Lemans concept car. (seriously they released a concept car that had the same exterior) but of course watching Irobot would be rediculous. Transporter 2 was ok for the kind of movie it is but lets face it the A8 got little screen time, I would rather watch Ronin (although the Irish chick in that movie has the worst taste in clothing)

I nominate Top Gear DVD's AND/OR Divx eppisodes of their BRITISH broadcast because
1-I dont think that many of us have watched them on this forum. Sorry but unless you are downloading videos and movies "illegaly" or are such a fan of Top Gear that you ordered the DVD's or have BBC british satelite broadcast. I could be wrong, things may have changed but I am confident the Discovery Channel broadcast is tailored for the U.S. market and they do not sell their DVD's here.

If you havent read Topgear Magazine or watched TopGear T.V. I highly recommend it.
But be fowarned it will put a crack in your romance with VW when you realize that Brits view the Golf the way we view the Camry, the anchors of the show and audience choosing in a 'show of hands vote' the Focus Type R over the Golf R32(TV show, they said the R32 is a more safe and conservative choice!), showing a R32 4motion system not hugging the track and keeping sideways on the track's curve like an Audi does(TV) and the survey they did on top 100 cars putting the Bora in 50th place and the Golf in 70th place and Skoda and Seat beating them both (from Dec 2003 magazine).
