Things I Learned From Movie X: Torque

Here's the link to my latest Things I Learned From Movie X column at, in which I offer up some thoughts on Torque, a barely remembered attempt to do for illegal motor bike racing what The Fast and The Furious did for illegal car racing.

I've been hearing about Torque for ages, mainly from the guys on the Battleship Pretension podcast, who have repeatedly mentioned it as a particularly awesome terrible film. They are not wrong. It's about as stupid a film as I have ever seen and I loved every minute of it.

If you have LoveFilm, it's available to stream for free and is well worth the investment of 82 paltry minutes as long as you are willing to embrace how thoroughly stupid it is.
