Top Motorcycle Movies of All Time?

A list of "26 Greatest Motorcycle Moves of All Time" is provoking a bunch of comments today on Facebook.

The list includes "Top Gun," "Easy Rider" and "Wild Hog" but omits "The Motorcycle Diaries."

The original article lists some B-movies alongside some cult favorites and more mainstream films, and includes some interesting details that are worth reading. Take a look HERE.

But, I think the list needs to be updated to include "The Motorcycle Diaries" (2004) that follows two friends through the sweeping vistas of South America on motorcycles. Walter Salles is no ordinary director and the cinematography is truely gorgeous.

"Diaries" reminds me how little of the South American landscape we ever see on film in the US.

Also... what about "The World's Fastest Indian" - Anthony Hopkins?

What do you think?
