    Fast Five

    ★★★★

    Listening to a few podcasts after watching this, and I'm in awe at how much of Fast Five was shot practically. We aren't quite in Mad Max: Fury Road territory, but there are two car set pieces in this movie - an early heist involving a train and the bonkers finale - that I've legitimately never seen in cinema before.

    TROS feels more like a cynical obligation than a labor of love befitting of the culmination of the greatest entertainment franchise in movie history. Scenes are unloaded on the audience like a machine gun's clip, like a parent speed-reading through the last chapter of their bedtime story so their kid will finally…
