Can't believe it took reading that "Fast and Furiousa" comment for me to finally make the Mad Max connection.

I'd only watch that if George Miller directed the film. No other action director working in Hollywood today is fit to lace his boots after the glory that is Fury Road.

Eh, James Wan did a damn good job. Not as good as Miller, no, but more than good enough.

Is the plan to continue alternating words in the franchise's title?

  • Fast 5
  • Furious 6
  • Furious 7
  • Fast 8

There are other words in the title, y'know. When are we going to get The 9? Or Ampersand 10? The (The Second One) 11?

They should have called the movie The Furious 8.

The Fast 8 The Furious. It's about cannibalism.

[up][up]

I like to think that the F&F producers (Furious 7) have already matched Tarantino (The Hateful 8) and... Sandler (The Ridiculous 6).

[up][up] Brilliant.

AT the very least, I'm glad that the director for this movie is someone with an experience of directing a driving movie (The Italian Job remake).

I...actually want to see this now.

I'd heard rumours about Helen Mirren getting the villain role a long time ago, but I down for Theron if she's the main villain (which it sounds like she is). I don't this these movies have done a female main villain before.

You know what, I actually want this one to keep 6th and 7th movie's ridiculousness.

Furious 7 was the best superhero movie Universal Studios ever created. evil grin

Seriously, from Fast Five onwards, it would not be this franchise if it wasn't a bizarrely seamless merger of high-octane action thriller, big guys driving cars fast, and heartwarming sincerity uncharacteristic of modern filmmaking.

Nothing happens ironically in this franchise. When Dom hugs his family, gives a speech about the importance of togetherness, and then jumps a car off the Eiffel Tower to land on a space shuttle and stop a cryogenically frozen Soviety spy from bombing America, the franchise looks you straight in the eyes without the slightest hint of a self-aware shrug and goes, "Yeah. We just did that. You want to make something of it?"

Things I Want to See in Future Fast and Furious films #1:

Someone crashing a a fucking A-10 Warthog with a car.

It would be sinful as hell, but holy shit I would wet myself.

Random thought.

Furious 7 was titled in Japan as "Wild Speed: Sky Mission", which I thought was ball-bustingly awesome.

I wonder what kind of awesome alternate title 8th will get? I don't know, Wild Speed: Infinity Breakthrough? tongue

This movie needs to have Dom ramp a car off a space station. I propose Mir.

  • INTERVIEWER: So what was it like working on the film?
  • VIN DIESEL: It was a bit tricky getting all the information we needed. NASA is no longer accepting my calls after I kept asking them questions about satellite jumping angles and tire traction on the alloys they use.

Save space for 10. Unless they decide to go with time travel for that one.

  • INTERVIEWER: Fans have been wondering if you've talked much about time travel.
  • VIN DIESEL: Well, we were going to make a movie about a car that starts shooting through time when you drive it really fast but then we got a Cease-and-Desist Order from Universal Pictures. Apparently that already exists.

EDIT: ...oh, wait, the Fast and Furious franchise is also Universal. They could do the most awesome crossover ever.

[up][up]I wouldn't go quite that far. [lol]

I would love to see a scene where either a villain or hero crew is driving away from pursuers, and then they drive off the road...and they jump out of the car, open up their wingsuit, and glide away.
