I agree, and it's handled in a strange way to.I've got more to say on the F&F series especially in response to your comments, but I'll have to catch them after I catch some zzzzzzzs first. I will say I may be eating crow when it comes to which is my favourite. Fast Fives kinda rocking my world right now.
@Aaron T. Rex: "Up from the 36th chambers" It's all about the training. Which of the chambers is your favorite? Personally I am all about the hitting of the bell.
@Aaron King: I think you do need to see at least the third one.
There are two major things wrong with this movie.
1. It is a duller than dull. I mean, I just watched this movie and I couldn't recount anything that happened in the film. There isn't a single memorable action scene or moment in the entire film.
2. The cg effects work, especially during the tunnel sequences, is horrendous
Now, I didn't hate this movie as much as I did when I saw it in the theater, but I do think it is easily the worst film in the series. The whole revenge thing with Dom's character simply doesn't work, as it is in no way interesting. Dom is already an uninteresting character in the first place, but give him a one track mind, and he becomes nothing more than a robot. I give this movie props for cementing the series cred by bringing everyone back, but that's about all that I give to this movie.
Too be honest, I also disagree with you on Death Proof and Skyfall..............I was just trying to be nice
@Phips: Wow, you'e been dropping some serious bombs on Letterboxd. Fast & Furious at 3? You'se got to be kidding me. I'm about an hour through the rewatch (I saw it in the theater and hated it), so let's talk once I get that review up.
I'll definitely hook you up. I was working on four this afternoon, but the power kept going out and I got tired of waiting for it to come back on. I'll finish four up tonight, and maybe five to.
Pretty much everything that you wrote in your review is either the opposite of the way that I feel or a non-issue to me. There was a time when I didn't like this movie, but I have warmed…
Beautiful final paragraph my friend.
I don't agree with you on The Untouchables or Garden State, but it is still good to have you back.
I can dig it. They even allude to that in the movie, what with calling the main dude cowboy and such. The villains are also very westernesque.
