Torque

Viewing date: 5/31/2012

Starring:

Ice Cube, some guy that sort of looks like David Arquette, Jaime Pressley

Summary:

Biker Cary Ford is framed by an old rival and biker gang leader for the murder of another gang member who happens to be the brother of Trey (Ice Cube), leader of the most feared biker gang in the country. Ford is now on the run trying to clear his name from the murder with Trey and his gang looking for his blood.

Rules:

  • Wheelies
  • Sliding bike under things
  • Airborne vehicles
  • Motorcycle puns
  • Dragging knees around corners
  • Ice Cube sneering

Quotes:

“What is it about driving cars that makes you guys such assholes?”

“No two sprockets are the same”…  “Like a fingerprint…”

“I live my life a quarter mile at a time.”

“Every major road to LA has been blocked.”

“Fuck the Po-lice.” (Ice Cube)

Viewer quotes:

“She snuck up on him.  On a motorcycle!”

“This director is no Spike Jonze.”

What we learned:

  • Motorcycles only make noise when they’re right next you.
  • Police base opinions on one person’s eyewitness testimony and put the suspect on the most wanted list based on no other evidence.
  • Motorcycles can go even faster when doing wheelies.
  • Nothing provokes a fight faster than riding your bike quickly past someone.
  • Bikers and car drivers hate each other.
  • There IS a black biker gang (called the reapers), although the “good” biker gangs are multi-racial.
  • Ice Cube is a shit actor that sneers a lot.
  • Ice Cube portrays Ice Cube very well.
