Typical '100 favorite films' lists aren't cutting it anymore. It feels too narrow, too uptight. Here's a new list, in…
Get the Fifth Gear.
Former cop Brian O'Conner partners with ex-con Dom Toretto on the opposite side of the law. Since Brian and Mia Toretto broke Dom out of custody, they've blown across many borders to elude authorities. Now backed into a corner in Rio de Janeiro, they must pull one last job in order to gain their freedom.
A beautiful, inspiring poem of a film. Some say it is not as good as CITIZEN KANE. To that I say CITIZEN KANE does not feature the word "funderwear."

Now this is podracing!
I've seen marriage referred to as a ball and chain, but I've never seen having a baby with your best friend's sister depicted as a safe and chain. This is as close as such a heteronormative franchise is going to get to marrying off its main characters. Paul Walker ♥ Vin Diesel
The fifth instalment in The Fast and the Furious franchise, Fast Five is an intensely gripping, thoroughly engaging & relentlessly entertaining sequel that not just brings several upgrades in all departments of filmmaking but by replacing the street racing formula with elements of a heist thriller, it ends up resurrecting this derailed franchise in style and heralds the series' heading into a new direction.
Set in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, the story of Fast Five follows Dominic Toretto, Brian O'Conner & Mia as they plan a massive heist to steal $100 million in cash from a ruthless drug lord & corrupt businessman and enlist the help of former allies to pull off the job which would buy them their freedom. But at the…
Part 5 of One Last Ride
"The most important thing in life will always be the people in this room, right here, right now."
I find it so incredibly difficult to believe that Fast Five was released almost four years ago. I still remember the day vividly: it was a Friday, my group of friends and I had just gotten out of school for the weekend, and we had been planning on seeing Fast Five for weeks, it seemed.
We walked the two mile distance from our high school to the local theater, stopping halfway to buy some snacks (that we hid in our backpacks once we got to the theater) from a local Dollar…
As unapologetically cheesy and joyously entertaining as the last time I watched it. I still can't believe the fifth instalment in a poor franchise could turn out as good as this.
just when it looked like the Fast franchise was over – the grim and morose-filled Fast & Furious nose-diving almost all of the charm lin promised with Tokyo Drift – Fast Five came along, turning the earnestness + charisma up to eleven and choosing to delve even deeper into the melodramatic, mythological rabbit hole of a series that’s existence is still bewildering to this very day.
where there was once a series of underground racing/crime films that concentrated too much on melodrama and dated coolness with little-to-no self-awareness, occasionally veering into the vehicle-based lunacy we all loved, Fast Five was a total reinvigoration - establishing the Fast movies as this weirdly superb action-franchise hybrid. appropriating the globetrotting pleasures of Mission Impossible,…
More of a conventional heist film, lacking a lot of the dopey charm of the earliest entries. Still, OK.
"Doesn't matter how far apart we are. The bonds we've made will remain strong. Everyone's hearts is connected to the people they know and trust. It's those bonds that let us all search for our purpose in life. As long it's a purpose that you believe in, there will always be someone who could help you fulfill it. You, me, and everyone else, there are no barriers. Our hearts are one."

Cooles Setting und ein brachiales Finale. Zwei Stunden beste Unterhaltung mit richtig gut inszenierter Action.
The fast and the furious franchise hasn't really been a series I consider good. Up until fast five I was surprised that it wasn't all that boring and had some decent characters in the film. It's still average but Fast Five to me is a step up from the franchise even if it fails at some parts to take itself seriously.
only fast&furious movie I've ever seen and I've seen it twice.
"Oceans Eleven, with axe body spray." -Paul Scheer
If we can consider Fast & Furious the definite article-less sequel the series needed, then it seems that perhaps third times a charm. This is the first time a sequel in this series has felt like it had higher stakes than the original movie (and too be clear, the stakes don’t seem that high in the first film). Finally, after 5 films I have made it to one that I genuinely enjoy. I mean, I make it no secret that I love the Rock, and while he’s kinda not the character I’m used to seeing from him, he still added a lot to the movie for me. Also, Vin Diesel is now at peak Diesel, and he’s bringing a great kind…
I feel bad for the cleanup crew.
