Fast and Furious Spyracers Super Cut

Supplemental Reading: Fast and Furious: Spyracers Super Cut



From January 24, 2020 to March 20, 2020, Zero Credit(s) dedicated one segment per episode to the Netflix Original Series Fast and Furious: Spyracers. With the advent of a season two and three (?!) of the aforementioned show, Henry and John made the executive decision to never cover a show in this manner again, choosing instead to do one dedicated episode per season from here on out. That being said, it only made sense to collect all of the coverage of the first season in one episode. This decision was made before realizing that this would make said episode over three hours long… So buckle up and prepare to get Frosty, folks, this is a three hour super cut of Spyracers content that no one asked for, but is certainly a thing that exists now. Right here, on Zero Credit(s).


Sometimes it's best to not mess with a hurricane...

Supplemental Reading: The Hurricane Heist



In 2018, Fast and Furious Rob Cohen directed a film called The Hurricane Heist. Set erroneously in Gulfport, Alabama, the 1 hour and 42 minute action-packed romp through weather and betrayal oozes out of the screen and into your eyes with an overall feeling of “well, this might as well happen.” Henry and John stumbled across this title quite by accident and decided to watch it based solely on the font choice for the title and the lie that it takes place in Mississippi. Thanks Netflix description writer. If you’ve watched this movie and want to hear us voice our opinions on this film, please listen by all means. For everyone else who hasn’t seen the film yet, maybe go watch it, maybe do something better with the next hour or so of your life. This is an unprecedented Supplemental Reading in more ways than one and if that’s enough to get you to listen, then great. We’ve got it all here on Zero Credit(s), and that includes admitting that sometimes, we made a mistake. Sorry.


Episode 199.Supplemental Reading: Fast Five 2



In 2011, a man had a dream. A dream to create the best action/car/heist movie of all time set in Brazil, using an already established franchise and characters people already knew. Unfortunately, Hannah Barbara would not give up the rights to Speed Buggy, so Justin Lin had to fall back to The Fast and Furious Franchise instead. For fun, he brought along Chris Morgan, writer of the previous film, for a lark and knocked the entire movie out of the park. It’s all here.

Then, in 2018, two men thrown through time found a chance to rewatch that move again for the first time. They were supposed to be fixing the time stream, but…, well, who’s to say what they were and weren’t supposed to do. The instructions were unclear. All this talk of mattresses got confusing. But here were are. In 2018. Again. What a ride.

Supplemental Reading: Bloodshot



Valiant comics may not be as well known as your run of the mill DC or Marvel comics, but they still exist and with Marvel being over and DC being…DC, Valiant Entertainment is in a prime position to take over the superhero space with their particular brand of superhero. To kick things off we have Bloodshot, starring Vin Diesel, Eiza Gonzalez, Guy Pearce, and Winston from New Girls. Will this origin story turned action adventure thriller be good enough to launch an entire cinematic universe? Well, that’s for us to decide.

**THIS IS A SUPPLEMENTAL READING, MEANING WE TALK ABOUT THE MOVIE IN SUCH A MANNER THAT IT WOULD BE BEST IF YOU, DEAR LISTENER, HAVE SEEN THE MOVIE WE’RE TALKING ABOUT BEFORE LISTENING TO THIS EPISODE**

 


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.

This is a formal warning that this episodes contains spoilers for the hit Netflix series Stranger Things, specifically in relation to the second season of the aforementioned show in its entirety. It is recommended that if you, Party B, have not watched the entirety of the second season of the aforementioned show, hereby referred to as Strangy Tings, then you, Party B, should not download or listen to this episode of Zero Credit(s) Supplemental Reading: Stranger Things 2. With that covered, the description reads as follows:

John and Henry dive deep back into Hawkins to unlock the deepest mystery of all for the second season of Stranger Things. Namely, they wonder if the second season was “good” or “bad.” With a second season, there’s more room for bad decisions, poor characterization, and straight failure from those time-honored (this is their first show) Duffer Brothers. 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.
