List of movies with choppers in them...

Post by Prof » Sun Aug 14, 2011 1:16 pm

List from Panhead Marty...

I've all these flicks, they range from the very good to the unwatchable, a lot of them are VERY hard to get hold off, have them mostly on long out of print VHS but can copy to DVD. They're listed roughly in order of release. Still collecting can't get hold of fairly well known titles like The Devil's Angels, etc. I've cut off at the mid-70s, not really interested in anything past this, the bikes ain't as cool to start with...

The Wild One (not much you can say about this one, classic, prefer Lee Marvins character)
The Wild Angels (The movie that kicked off the biker series of the late '60s early '70s, great bikes, cool music but way to many party and rumble scenes, which was the big down fall of a lot of the films that followed)
Hells Angels On Wheels (super cool chops, great riding scenes, terrible music! Mostly remembered for Jack Nicholson, features the Oakland Angels)
Born Losers (first appearance of the Billy Jack character, not bad)
Wild Rebels (ultra low budget, shocking with minimal bike scenes)
The Glory Stompers (Dennis Hoppers first bike flick, not great, suffers from WAY to many rumbles, quite hard to get hold of)
She Devils On Wheels (hilarious trash, first of the chick/bike flicks)
Hells Belles (another chick/bike flick, the poster for this is probably better known the movie, was used for the recent Grindhouse release)
The Savage 7 (minor classic of the era, great music Cream/Iron Butterfly, great cast of biker regulars and some neat machines, not easy to come by either, a favourite of mine)
The Hellcats (another chick/bike clunker)
Mini-Skirt Mob (one of the better chick ones, bikes are pretty boring though and its got one of the worst title songs ever! Hilarious!)
Run, Angel, Run (what can be said, absolute classic with the great William Smith in one of his best roles, great choppers, good music, have the ultra rare soundtrack LP for this one. Just let down by the usual cliches)
Easy Rider (say no more)
Sinner's Blood (ultra sleazy obscurity even for the genre, low low budget and not much else!)
Hells Angels '69 (another minor classic of the genre, great bikes, great riding scenes, Sonny Barger and the boys have big roles in this one)
Satan's Sadists (trash classic, scummiest bikers ever on screen!)
The Cycle Savages (minimal bikes, but good when they're on screen. Bruce Dern plays a good part here but not enough bikes)
Rebel Rousers (some pretty good choppers here, movie isn't the best though. This was dug up after Nicholson hit the big time with Easy Rider)
CC & Company (brilliant bikes and some good riding scenes which started to play a bigger part in the films afer Easy Rider)
Hells luvl'y Devils (low budget trash with to much scrapping and not enough riding, same director as Satan's Sadists. This film was cobbled together with something else to make a bike film and it shows) The Losers (another William Smith classic, chopped dirt bikes take on the whole Vietnamese army! Dumb but fun)
Angels Die Hard (a personal favourite, serious choppers including Gary Littlejohns famous trike in loads of bike riding scenes set to a GREAT soundtrack, got the LP for this one too, cast is full of regulars, sure the movie is cheap but its way up top for the riding scenes and bikes)
Angel Unchained (not bad but pretty tame and has annoying dune buggie riding bad guys, bikes are good when featured)
The Wind Splitter (Only two bikes in this obscure Texan based hippie era film, but the lead actors is a wicked long chop and has some good riding scenes)
Outlaw Riders (low budget biker heist obscurity)
The Peace Killers (bikers vs Hippies, not bad film, bikes are pretty standard)
Wild Riders (bikes disappear not long into this trashy sleaze)
The Jesus Trip (another obscure little classic, sort of a religious western/biker)
The Hard Ride (a personal favourite, heaps of riding scenes, including a seriously extended chop which is my favourite movie bike! Brilliant soundtrack LP too! Only problem here is the usual crap fight scenes)
Bury Me An Angel (this is considered one of the better ones, i'm not a huge fan, pretty boring but heaps of cool riding scenes. Same people made Angels Die Hard which is for me is the better film for bikers. Not easy to come by this one. Probably the best of the chick films)
The Pink Angels (a gay biker film! Hells Angels In Heels! Seriously, though its really only suggested and its more of a comedy, its not actually that bad, though the bikes are gay!)
Chrome And Hot Leather (Marines including Marvin Gaye! take on William Smiths gang, hes the best thing about this, though the riding scenes are ok)
Werewolves on Wheels (weird horror/biker hybrid is actually one of the better films in the genre. Realistic looking bikers, great bikes and brilliantly shot riding scenes, the werewolf makeup is funny though!)
Angels Hard As They Come (another dead set classic, great, great bikes and actually a decent film)
The Brute Corps (ultra rare and obscure, bikers on cool chops get dispatched at the start of this one, only in it maximum of five minutes!)
JC (i actually like his one, cool chops and some decent riding scenes. Pretty rare, not like the usual bike flick at all)
Angels Wild Women (more trash from the Satans Sadists/Hells luvl'y Devils crew. Last of the chick ones)
The Dirt Gang (bikers on dirt bikes, not good!)
The Loners (good little movie, with Dean Stockwell, pretty rare)
Hex (real oddity, set in early 1900's with bikers turning up at witches house)
The No Mercy Man (Also called Trained to Kill, returned Nam vet takes on Biker gang, not bad)
The Black Six (low budget biker/blaxploitation cross over,
Black Angels apparently better but can't get a hold of it)
Teenager (very very rare little film about a director shooting a bike movie in a small town but having the actors play the violence for real, sort of like Dennis Hoppers The Last Movie, only two Triumphs featured though)
Hollywood Man (another personal favourite and one of William Smiths best roles, basically playing himself trying to raise money to shoot another biker flick but borrowing it from the mob and running into trouble with real life bikers. This isn't strictly a biker film, but theres enough choppers here and BRILLIANT riding scenes to put it in the top five of them all. Very hard to get hold of a collectors item and the Holy Grail for biker movie fans!)
Trip With The Teacher (trashy cult fav, schoolgirls in trouble with nasty bikers)
The Northville Cemetery Massacre (despite the title its not a horror film but a very good but really low budget cult bike film, recently given a great DVD rerelease .Worth checking out)
The Great Skycopter Rescue (very late '70s disco era action movie with some cool bikes)

I think thats all the ones i have, as i said have only gone as far as the '70s, theres loads in the '80s and '90s but some of them like Death Riders even make the worst of the '60s ones look good.
