Christopher Cross and Dylan Schwan continue their celebration of The Fast and the Furious franchise with their review of The Fate of the Furious. Directed by F. Gary Gray, this one pits Dominic Toretto against his family, forcing them to face the one man that may finally prove to be a challenge. We talk about the notable absence of Paul Walker, the extremely dark moments, and the (incorrect) decision to introduce Scott Eastwood and give Tyrese more lines than anyone else. Also, where is the Corona?! There’s too much to talk about, plus we update our ranking of The Fast and the Furious action scenes to include two of the ones from the eighth film. Don’t forget to check out Dylan’s written review of the film, as well.
There’s so much more to discuss though. Dylan saw The Lure and David Lynch: The Art Life, Chris saw Song to Song and The Ticket, and we both discuss Your Name. Not only that, but there were three trailers that were released that demand our attention, including Kathryn Bigelow’s Detroit, Taika Waititi’s Thor: Ragnarok, and Rian Johnson’s Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi. There is no shortage of news, plus there are a bunch of blu-rays out this week including our pick of the week: Split – which you can listen to us discuss.
Next week, we’ll return with a review of Ben Wheatley’s Free Fire.
