Most Popular Movie Cars Top 10 List

Cars are rarely the star of the show, but there are always cars that steal the spotlight and take the glory for themselves. Here are 10 of the most popular cars on TV and in movies, cars that are legends in their own right:

Aston Martin DB5 This 1964 car was featured in the James Bond movie “Goldfinger”, and it was the car that made headlines as the perfect James Bond car. Since that day and up until just a few years ago, James Bond only ever drove the Aston Martin a top car thanks to its 282 HP engine, 4 liter, 6-cylinder engine, bulletproof glass, machine guns, and radar (the last three dont come with the regular car).

DeLorean DMC-12 — Marty McFly and Doc Brown drove through time in this 1981 car, and you will find that its definitely a car that belongs on this list. Its engine is a hybrid that uses nuclear and electric power, the doors are gull-wings, the car actually runs on trash and can fly! The manual transmission had 5 speeds, the car ran in rear-wheel drive, and it was the first car with a flux capacitor.

Ferrari 250 GT This 1961 car was featured in the movie “Ferris Buellers Day Off”, and the cherry red exterior, Cameron-sized tonneau compartment, and wire grille definitely sets it apart from the rest. The car had 280 HP, a 12 cylinder engine of 3.0 liters, a four-speed manual transmission, and rear wheel drive.

Cadillac Ambulance “Ghostbusters” made this 1959 car famous, even though it didnt have the most prominent role in the movie. The car has 325 HP, a 6.4 liter V8 engine, and rear wheel drive. Dont forget the sleek tail fins, the sires and flashing lights, as well as the ladder attached to the side!

Mini Cooper S The movie “Italian Job” made this little 2003 car famous, especially when it showed the drivers plowing through the ample hallways of a palatial mansion. The little cars were central to the plot of the movie, and their 163 HP, 1.6 liter 4-cylinder supercharged engine and front wheel drive made them a car worthy to be driven by the thieves not to mention the fact that they were 200 pounds lighter than the regular model.

GMC Vandura G-Series G-1500 — “The A Team” was a TV show that was incredibly popular in the 1980s, and this 1983 van was the car that made it possible for them to be the crack commando unit they were. The van had a V8 engine that could run up to 350 HP, as well as a fully automatic Ruger rifle loaded with 5.56×45 mm rounds. The black, red, and grey paint is still a signature in the world of cars.

Ferrari 308 GTS The man with the moustache Tom Selleck made Magnum P.I. a show that thrilled generations, and his sleek car was just as memorable as his chest hair and short shorts. This car had an engine with 255 HP, and the TV show rocketed this car to fame overnight.

Volkswagen 1200 Beetle Herbie the Beetle in “Love Bug” was a 1964 model of this car, and the little car that would piss oil on you as soon as race became a sensation. The car is made by the chief designer of Porsche, and the powerful little car is as practical as it is reliable.

Ford Lincoln Futura Adam West is one of TVs most famous Batman actors, and his Batmobile was the 1955 model of this car. The car is modeled after a mako shark and a manta ray, and its sleek looks are peerless.

Pontiac Trans Am K.I.T.T. was the 1982 car that could talk to his driver David Hasselhoff in his young days and the car was built for power. It could go from 0 to 60 in .2 seconds, and its 8-speed manual transmission was supercharged for maximum power.

Digitalization Of Entertainment

Consumers have moved rapidly to adopting digital formats for consuming entertainment-related content. The most obvious example of this is music and video downloads, with Apple’s iTunes and YouTube as leading examples. Apple has sold more than one billion songs via its iTunes music store and it continues to demonstrate a spectacular rate of growth. Over 30,000,000 individuals have purchased an iPod portable music device, and tens of millions of other consumers use one of dozens of other portable devices to listen to music. Other platforms for listening to music are equally successful, and in the case of Microsoft’s Windows Media Player even more dominant with over 90,000,000 systems running the software globally. Real Networks Rhapsody, and Yahoo! Music represent other major entrants in this space. In addition to those companies selling licensed music downloads for a fee, peer-to-peer networks such as Limewire and Morpheus claim to have tens of millions of users sharing music and other files on a continual basis.

As consumers have become comfortable purchasing (and stealing) music online, they are now beginning to download other digital forms of entertainment, including music videos, short-subject films, television shows, and even full-length Hollywood pictures. Traditional media companies have recognized the opportunity to establish new revenue streams and leverage old assets by enabling consumers to download television programming for a fee, and the adoption rate appears to match the early days of music downloading. The increasing penetration of broadband connections (over 50 million homes in the US), advances in software that enables high-quality downloads, and content companies recognizing an enormous opportunity to distribute directly and inexpensively to consumers has created a tidal shift in the number of digital media assets available for download to computers, handheld devices, and even cell phones.

Companies such as YouTube are at the forefront of the intersection of video entertainment and the fragmentation of media due to the empowerment of the consumer. Hundreds of millions of videos are downloaded weekly from YouTube (as well as dozens of competitors), and a significant portion of those videos are not professionally produced. More importantly, new talent in various entertainment fields are being discovered through these distribution platforms and forever changing how entertainment is conceived, produced, distributed, and valued.

Auto Sound Systems are Becoming Entertainment Systems

Auto Sound Systems are Becoming Entertainment Systems

If you’ve been shopping lately for an auto sound system then I am fairly certain that you’ve come across several full entertainment systems among those in the running for your audio and entertainment dollars. Vehicles today offer everything from DVD players, individual speakers, headphones (also individually adjustable), and even dual players that will allow one different audio to be played in one section of the vehicle than another. In addition to all of these wonderful and nifty devices are many more devices that are meant to tempt, sway, and convince you to spend even more money on the auto sound system of your dreams. Some of these even offer MP3 players that connect directly to the audio system of your car, truck, or SUV.

The jury is still out for many people about the safety and sense of having a DVD player in your automobile. While this is the case, people will continue purchasing DVD players are part and parcel of their sound and entertainment systems and manufacturers will continue putting together attractive packages that offer these devices to consumers while offering incredible bargains on installation. I know that many feel that this is an unnecessary distraction to drivers. I’m one of the rare people that feels that in a day of laptops, cell phones, talk radio, fast food, Starbucks coffee, and multitasking, a DVD in the back might be one of the best features that can be added to the car in an effort to minimize distractions coming from the direction of disgruntled passengers in the rear.

I will confess that many people wonder what this has to do with an auto sound system and I can understand that question so please bare with me. One of the features that sound system manufacturers are offering is a feature that allows individual headphones for passengers in the back along with LCD monitors that rest in the back of the head rests so that passengers in the back can both see and hear the DVDs being played without causing a distraction for the driver (either by noise or by means of flashing lights).

The truth of the matter is that having the noise from a DVD player in the back is no worse of a distraction than having disgruntled children competing for your attention from the backseat or listening to audio books as you drive along. I must admit that audio books are one of my current and readily admitted addictions. The problem with those is that on occasion some of the books simply aren’t meant for young ears. I try to keep my books limited to popular stories that are suitable for children whenever my children are riding along and save the sometimes steamy and often hilarious tales of Stephanie Plum for when I’m riding alone. Another great reason to make sure you have an auto sound system that at the very least reads and understands MP3s.

The technology exists for this and I expect to see even more innovations technologically speaking in the way of auto sound systems and entertainment systems in the near and not so near future. We live in a world where technology is constantly evolving and we should see many new and wonderful features that will make our lives much more enjoyable for our daily commute.

Whether you are new to the technology of today, fighting it mightily, or happily embracing it-it isn’t showing any signs of stopping or slowing down. This means that you will eventually have to face the fact that the old ways of buying an auto sound system will soon be obsolete. I often joke that we are rapidly becoming a society that is catching up with the “Jetson’s” vision for the future. I also loudly lament my lack of a Rosie. At any rate, I am glad to see that the new technologies in auto sound systems are offering less of a one size fits all image and offering much more individual systems, even for passengers within a vehicle.

How To Play Blu-ray Movies With Xbmc

While XBMC functions very well as a standard media player application for your computer, it has been designed to be the perfect companion for your HTPC. Supporting an almost endless range of remote controls, and combined with its beautiful interface and powerful skinning engine, XBMC feels very natural to use from the couch and is the ideal solution for your home theater. The free multimedia player XBMC is much favored by Xbox owners, especially for its wide range of video and audio codec. (Click for detailed guide of Play Blu-ray Movies on XBOX 360)

However, XBMC does not naturally support original Blu-ray playback. By Blu-ray here I mean commercial blu-ray discs which are copy-protected. In fact no other than authorized BD players should be able to play commercial blu-ray discs. This is not an issue of codec; its about the copy-protections. Besides, XBMC need C/C++ open source software libraries for all of these things to fully support Blu-ray playback. However, there is not yet any C/C++ open source software out there yet capable of fully playing back Blu-ray. In order to play blu-ray with XBMC, you have to crack the BD copy protections including AACS (up to MKBv17), BD+, region code restrictions, etc. Now lets see what can be done to make XBMC play Blu-ray movies and how to enjoy Blu-ray movies from your HDTV by accessing media in your XBMC media center. Note that you must have a BD drive in the first place to support blu-ray playback.

Solution 1. Rip blu-ray to XBMC friendly HD video formats with Pavtube Ultimate Blu-ray Ripping Software.
Ripping blu-ray movie is the first solution I’d like to recommend. You rip it once and for all.

Step 4. Click Convert to start ripping blu-ray movies to XBMC. When the process is finished, you can click Open to get converted video in output destination folder.

Solution 2. Play blu-ray movie streams from ripped BDMV folders.

Just load the blu-ray disc to the app and click Full Disk Copy to full back up blu-ray movie to hard drive with menus.
