    The Fate of the Furious

    ★★★★½

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Here we go, the most recently released one, as of this writing.

    The good: Dwayne Johnson was back on form, after a subdued showing in Furious 7. Back to being over-the-top, and I loved every minute of it. The same goes for Kurt Russel's "Mr. Nobody" character.

    The better: A shoot-out involving a baby in a car carrier, listening to Alvin & the Chipmunks. This should be horrific, instead it's fun and adorable and in this film, why the hell not?…

    I know, it's been a few days since I watched the last one, but it's been busy. So, today, I finally used a bit of Google Play credit and rented Furious 7.

    So far, this one has been my favorite. The addition of Jason Statham and Kurt Russell (one I knew about because of the mid-credit scene in 6, the other was a complete surprise until the opening credit) really got me psyched, and the amount of ludicrous, over-the-top crap…

    The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift

    ★★★

    When I started watching this, I reached out to one of the friends that recommended the series to me, asking if this wasn't, in fact, the one they recommended that I skip. This is when I was given an important bit of information, a way to process the film that I hadn't thought of. In a nutshell, ignore the main character. Sean is not likable. Not at all. I didn't care about his journey. I wish he hadn't made it…

    ★★★

    Not a favorite like the original, but it didn't suck. It seemed a bit without focus on the front half, but the back half was fun. Five post-credit scenes was a bit... excessive as well. Not going to rush to see it in the theater again, but I'm definitely jumping on it when it comes out on blu ray.
