Break out the toenail polish; spring is here. And that means new shoes.
Hallelujah! No, seriously. You say “new shoes,” and I instantly start
hearing really exuberant gospel music that involves clapping and raising
of hands. Anyone else?
For pure automobile action, it’s ‘Gone,’ baby, ‘Gone.’

Compared to its 2000 big-budget remake, H.B. Halicki's Gone in 60 Seconds
is deficient in slickness, star power, performances, plotting and
humor. Yet the 1974 indie original decimates the Hollywood version as an
all-around entertainment. Why? Two simple reasons, boiled down to
numbers: some 500 vehicles wrecked and a 40-minute chase scene.
