  • Video and Audio Interviews


My Thoughts

I Need a Dodge is a Documentary that stemmed from an interview on a Spanish radio station about a car Joe Strummer from The Clash lost. The whole Documentary goes into what Joe was doing in Madrid at the time and also follows the path of what might have happen to his car.

The Documentary includes two editions, a Spanish and an English version granted I don’t know the differences as both are in Spanish with English Subtitles. We also get some music in between and a Spanish music video about that car.

Overall Its was an OK film to view as I thought it was interesting but at the same time feel like it’s a weird documentary to make on this subject. I Enjoyed the music through out and didn’t mind reading subtitles as I do this a lot anyway. The documentary doesn’t go to much into Band The Clash but mostly its about Joe Strummer in Madrid and the Hunt for his car.

With that said I give this Documentary A Right down the middle rating of 2.5 out of 5 stars. If you like Joe Strummer and are interested in this subject I say go and Pick this Up. I Like the extras, yes the interviews were cool but what this film comes with is a small bit of stuff that comes with your purchase like a booklet and some pamphlets but also a cassette tape of the interview.


Rating – 5 Star System

Note: I Know my speakers are way outdated. OPPO Blu-Ray Player is one of the best around and used in most home theaters. The Receiver is pretty good but on the line of out dated. Subwoofer is good with tons of bass but not the theater quality from a $400 Sub. Front speakers are fun with tons of power and are good for standalone’s but higher end sound (Hz) is lower quality. Overall I need to update on all speakers granted I do get decent sound out of them just the higher end falls short.


My Setup

About Masked Avenger

CEO/Webmaster of The Name Is James and I love Film ranging from Silent 20's to highly CGI Blockbusters of today. Westerns, Horror, world film, basically anything that peaks my interest I own it But Asian Films are what I Prize the most and Half of My collection Consists of Asian Films. Thanks to the Film 5 Deadly Venoms

I Hail From The US, Maryland Is where The Ninja Studies and views the Scrolls of Film That Shine on his 46" Screen. I own a sword, I can do a thousand upside down situps, and I randomly disappear in smoke when I'm not writing movie news and or reviews.
