    The three greatest "driving" scenes were of course from these epic movies that forever changed the way we see ourselves and the universe:

    1) The Blues Brothers
    2) Terminator 2
    and you guessed it
    3) Rambo First blood !

    I would go with:
    1. Lawrence of Arabia
    2. Godfather
    3. Barry Lyndon (not nearly my favourite Kubrick movie though but spectacular)

    I saw The Conformist several times but still prefer Fellini's Amarcord for cinematic ratings.

    I don't have time to research but here are some Good movies that flopped.
    Shawshank Redemption. The Big Lebowski. The Wizard of Oz. Citizen Kane (usually rated #1 by critics)

    All of those movies were indeed successes . . . over time. Now look at all the movies that garnered awards, flopped at the B.O., and then stayed flops.

    I get it Vin Diesel is just as good an actor as Michael Caine. Same Box Office gross.
