Supplemental Reading: Fast and Furious



It’s 2009. Every movie around us is dark, gritty, serious with heroes facing real problems and true conflict. Justin Lin is back to rework a movie franchise that didn’t know where it was going. His vision? Drop. The. “The”s. That’s right. The FFCU is back and it’s more streamlined than ever. Forget Sean Boswell, we’re going back to AMERICA this time around cause a whole lot of characters we haven’t seen in near a decade are coming back with a vengeance. Remember Brian O’Conner? How could you? But Dom’s back with his crew and it’s all fun in the sun until SOMEONE GETS MURDERED. We can’t reveal who because that’s kind of the driving force (ha) of the entire movie but odds are it isn’t Brian O’Conner, because WE FORGOT HE EXISTED. Are these random caps doing anything for you? No? Well BUCKLE UP, CHUCKLE HUTS, cause it’s to get FAST and FURIOUS up in this MOVIE HOUSE slash PODCAST.

Supplemental Reading: The Fast and the Furious



In 2001, famed director Robert Cohen had a plan. A man, a plan, a ten second car: The Fast and the Furious. And while the title may sound like a dramatic soap opera that your mom or dad might watch in the late afternoon, there’s nothing soap about this thrilling, high octane seed of one of America’s most successful franchises of all time. It’s dramatic, but it’s all on the pavement, cause that’s where the races happen.

John and Henry might be a little too detail oriented for this first installment, but just the series they’re reviewing, they’re going to get better with each episode, and faster, and more high-octane.

But all-in-all, the first of the Fast/Furious series is kind of mediocre with no real ending and it’s kind of shocking to know that this movie has seven sequels.

John and Henry dive deep back into Hawkins to unlock the deepest mystery of all for the second season of Stranger Things.

Will the season end up being a good? Or will it fall into the disgrace of being a bad? Listen and find out, Dear Listeners. Listen and find out.
