Exclamation Bikes in da Movies


A THOUSAND CLOWNS

What a movie!

Yes sir, that's my baby
No sir, I don't mean maybe
Yes sir, that's my baby now

Yes, ma'm, we've decided
No ma'm, we won't hide it
Yes, ma'm, you're invited now

By the way, by the way
When we meet the preacher I'll say

Yes sir, that's my baby
No sir, I don't mean maybe
Yes sir, that's my baby now


A sad note: this movie was a non mention for a bicycle as a character in film in the book Bike Cult by David Perry

Default

In the new Kevin James movie, Zookeeper, there is a bike race scene between Kevin James and Joe Rogan. They are racing to catch up with a girl they both are competing over. Sabotage, High Speed, Off road and on road action in this thrilling gut buster of a bike race through town.

Default I Am

I Am, 2010, a documentary directed and narrated by Tom Shadyac (who directed Ace Ventura, Bruce Almighty, Patch Adams, The Nutty Professor...).

Spurred by his own serious bicycle crash and subsequent post-concussion syndrome, Shadyac set out to find the root of what is wrong with our modern world and what we can do about it. In personal and candid interviews with the likes of Desmond Tutu, Howard Zinn, Noam Chomsky, Lynn Taggart and others, he presents a view that, despite all the problems faced by humanity, there is much right with humanity, that human empathy has a physical basis, and that cooperation and democracy are hard-wired into our DNA (and that of other organisms...including yogurt culture).

It was especially fun seeing it in the revamped Kiggins Theater in downtown Vancouver with an enthusiastic crowd including sponsor Occupy Vancouver.

Downside: only a little bike footage (but he did get back into riding).

Lightbulb A truly inspiring movie...

Trevor McKinney (Haley Joel Osment) frequently is seen on a bike (also nearly getting creamed by the reporter who brought his story out). He even uses it in defending his friend against the bullies who are beating him up... And in its own way inspired the "What Have YOU Done Today?" thread.



Pay it Forward.

Thumbs up Ridley Scott and his bicycles...

Apparently his first attempt at filming was titled "Boy & Bicycle"



And one of his more recognizable works had bikes in it too...



Blade Runner

Default Major Taylor's bike

Tracks of Glory.
There's a picture of one of Major Taylor's bikes displayed on a set of contemporary training rollers at the Bicycle Hall of Fame in Davis, California, in the CGOAB blog Raj's "Penny tour". I had never even thought about rollers used in that era...cool stuff!

In respect of CGOAB's copyright I'll provide the direct link instead of leaching the image: http://www.crazyguyonabike.com/doc/p...pic_id=1299863
