I made that title up.  I have absolutely not one shred of evidence that the 5th Fast and Furious movie will be called Fast & Furious: Brazilian Speed Racer.  I do have evidence that there will be a 5th movie, though.  And for that reason I think we should all rejoice.  As will the studio: this movie was the biggest opening weekend in history for an April premiere.  Although the budget was $85 mill and they wrecked hundreds of cars over the course of filming.



Faster & Furiouser April 4, 2009


Okay, I know “furiouser” isn’t a word.  I just want to say that before I move on — I do know basic English.

Snow didn’t happen here after all.  So I hit a matinee of Fast & Furious and it was killer.  I saw The Fast and the Furious twice in theaters when it came out so obviously I liked it a lot.  That being said, if you didn’t like the original, don’t see this one…but if you did, don’t let 2 Fast 2 Furious deter you from believing that the original cast really can be in a sequel without ruining it.

All my guy friends keep saying that Tokyo Drift was by far the best of the 4 movies (all of them saw the new one with me today so they can compare it to all 3 of the others).  However, I haven’t seen it so I can’t say for sure.

There are some familiar faces: Alpa Chino (Brandon T. Jackson) from Tropic Thunder and Han Lue (Sung Kang) from Tokyo Drift being two of them.

I don’t want to give anything away so all I’m going to say is GO SEE IT.  Pay attention to all the cheesy shit they say.  Take note so you can use it in your day-to-day life for a few weeks after other people have seen it and it still has relevance.  That alone is worth the $8-10.  Click in if you want spoilers (and I mean a complete summary so real spoilers).  (more…)
