CHICK FLICK WORTH WATCHING!

CHICK FLICK WORTH WATCHING! - 01/03/10 10:39 PM

My wife is always trying to drag me to some sensitive relationship based movie and I was very surprised to find one that I finally liked, It's Complicated.

Staring, Meryl Streep,Alec Baldwin and Steve Martin. If you have to go to one any time soon and have a choice, I highly recommend it <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/kewl.gif" alt="" />

We just watched Julie and Julia, and it was nice, too. Another Streep movie. Damn that woman is good. I used to watch Julia Child and she nailed that one of a kind voice.

No offense but I hope i don't have to validate your opinion!

Just wanted to let everyone know that there's a halfway decent chick flick out there if they were forced to go <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/scared.gif" alt="" />

It appears there may be two. Knowledge is key, specially if you're given the option to pick your torture <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/zombie.gif" alt="" />

It sure would help if they served beer at the theater <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/cheers.gif" alt="" />

69442, you just have to get comfortable with your female side. It may have to do with your choice of cars. The 67 was much better looking...

Ah now there's a subject I'd much rather talk (debate) about, you ever own one?

Some do. In Texas they have the Alamo Drafthouse, at least one in Austin and one in Houston that I know of. It's great, they serve you beer & food right in the theater. Decent beer selection included Sierra Nevada Pale Ale, Guinness, etc. My homebrew club went to the Houston location a few times.

Here in VA there's the Arlington Cinema Drafthouse. Seattle has the Central Cinema. Problem with these two is they don't show the most current movies. The one here has movies that came out 6-12 months ago and IIRC the one in Seattle showed stuff way older. Alamo in Houston always had at least some new releases.

There is a place in ashville, NC that you can have dinner while watching a movie.. Alcohol is served also. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/cheers.gif" alt="" />

69', car loveliness is in the eye of the beholder. I had a buddy who had a brand new '67 as a graduation present, and I got to drive it, and always lusted after that car. I was the driver in the drag races, and that baby would get it. Best handling of the muscle cars by far. I just never got into the big butted later models as GM made everybody work off the same base body as the Chevelle. I drove a Hurst later on, and while very nice, just not the same ride.

Probably my all time fave Olds was the 57 2dr Rocket 88 my father had, red on red, and it would kick the butt of any 57 Chebby, including a Power Pack 327.

Now, back to the movie...

We're in intermission at the drivein talk'n about our rides! Funny you mentioned your fathers 57 rocket being red on red, so was mine .... loved that car! Your right, loveliness is in the eye of the beholder because I thought most pre 1968 cars were a big box on wheels! And, chevy's were like a$$holes, everyone had one! My buddy had a 67 442 which went straight ok but didn't handle like mine. My 69 came with stiffer springs and huge frt and rear sway bars.

There was a $20 HD suspension option on the 67 that was the same package. Funny, I never went to the concession stand at the drive in. Always too busy doin' sumpin else, I guess, and there was a cooler in the trunk. Yeah, everybody and his brother had a Chevelle Super Sport 396. Funny, the fastest chebby in my town was a 66 chebbytwo with a 327/375hp, at least until Chigger Bates got the 302 Camaro d motor, and even he couldn't beat the Fairlane with the "390", which turned out to be a Monday car that got a 427 by mistake. Great times...

We're way off topic but what the hell it's my dumb post anyway!

I didn't say anything about concessions, I said intermission. Besides all the smart people brought what they needed and only left to use the restroom.

So, do you know what 442 really stands for? You'd be surprised how many 442 owners don't even know......

Re: CHICK FLICK WORTH WATCHING! - 01/05/10 11:40 PM

yup.

In the first year, with the 330 v8, it meant 4bbl carb, 4spd tranny, and dual exhausts. After that, it meant 400ci, 4bbl, and dual exhausts.

Re: CHICK FLICK WORTH WATCHING! - 01/05/10 11:46 PM

I wrecked a pretty cherry 442 my freshman year of high school. No license, no insurance and drunk as hell I managed to convince this guy to let me drive his vintage Oldsmobile. The owner of the vehicle was with me when we wrecked so he didn't want any cops involved..... <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/kewl.gif" alt="" />

Re: CHICK FLICK WORTH WATCHING! - 01/05/10 11:59 PM

You are correct, 1964 - 1965! But it changed again in 67 when they offered the downgraded 2bbl carb and then again in 69 when they offered the rare 455 engine!

kinda lost it's true meaning after a while but I still like the car.

Re: CHICK FLICK WORTH WATCHING! - 01/06/10 12:06 AM

Ya, wrapped mine around a tele pole my junior year of high school! No alcohol involved just way too fast for my inept abilities at the time.
Impact was at the drivers door going backwards which banana'd the car opening the passenger door as it spun in the air 180 degrees and out I went!
Oh, forgot to mention ..... not wearing seat belt. Now you know why I speak of the car in a past tense.

Well in HS it was four people in the front, four in the rear and two in the truck for drive in movie night <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/lol.gif" alt="" />

Re: CHICK FLICK WORTH WATCHING! - 01/06/10 01:07 AM

Yea he was pissed but very nervous as well. To this day I don't know why exactly he was so scared to have any police involvement. Both sides had severe body damage and I bent a rear axle. I bought him a new set of tires and never heard from him again. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif" alt="" />

I would have killed me. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif" alt="" />

Weird, he must have had something to hide. By the way, what year 442 was it?
Posted By: cmonty72

Re: CHICK FLICK WORTH WATCHING! - 01/06/10 01:35 AM

I think it was about mid to late sixties. The biggest boxiest one with twin headlights on each side and huge quarter panels. The trunk was huge on those things too. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/mrt.gif" alt="" />

Re: CHICK FLICK WORTH WATCHING! - 01/06/10 01:55 AM

Sounds like a 66 or 67, they were huge tankers <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/lol.gif" alt="" />

So, did he ever repair the car or was it too badly damaged?

that wasn't techincally a 442. It was called the Turnpike Cruiser, 400, 2bbl, and a 2.92 rear end, a travelling salesman's special.

Re: CHICK FLICK WORTH WATCHING! - 01/06/10 02:17 AM

I believe I have actually seen a unrestored 67 442 w/2bbl that had the orig build sheet in it's window at a show once. It was a very stripped down post body with a bench seat and no carpet, just rubber matting. Can't remember if it was a stick or auto though.

This movie sucked. The only part I liked was the random shots of the Porsche 911. Im glad it was only $1.06 to rent it at the Red Box machine at The Great Wal-Mart. The funny thing is that the RedBox machine is blue to match the store.

Our Redbox's are red, but now they charge $1.25 plus tax. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif" alt="" />

Whatsamatter, Margie, not into chickflicks and 442's? I just watched some foreign indy chick flick about beekeeping, and thought about you...

Re: CHICK FLICK WORTH WATCHING! - 06/08/10 03:26 AM

Nothin' wrong with 442's; one of the neighbors had one as a project when I was a kid; used to hang out over there all the time. His son was a nice kid too. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif" alt="" /> I see his Dad still has it, last time I was in Spokane. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/kewl.gif" alt="" />

I see my ol' biker neighbor just rolled out his big yella Ranchero for the summer.

5 months from last post, almost to the day. I remember reading here that it was a chick flick worth watching. My wife wanted a chick flick and I picked this one because of here.
