‘F9: The Fast Saga’ Is Undoubtedly the Worst ‘Fast and Furious’ Movie I’ve Seen

I’ve been waiting for months for F9: The Fast Saga so I could see the continuation of the story and so that I could determine for myself how bad or good this movie would be. Unfortunately, it’s just as bad as everyone says, if not worse.

F9: The Fast Saga does something no other Fast and the Furious movie has done, try to take itself seriously.

Yes, there were some emotional storylines in some of the films and The Fate of the Furious had a lot of drama but it never lost grasp of what was really important; fast and furious action scenes. This movie only has one exhilarating action scene, the first one, and then from there it turns into a long sappy film that deals with Dom having to reckon with his past in the form of his brother, John Cena a.k.a Jakob.

Why did they have to make John Cena his brother again? Why couldn’t he have been just another villain because that unrealistic connection between Dom and Jakob absolutely RUINED the movie!

The heavy amount of sentimental flashbacks completely took away from the flow of the story, Han is back but why, the characters have officially become superheroes in cars because they are freaking indestructible (even dead characters are returning to save the day), and don’t even get me started on the shoot-a-car-into-space mission.

By the end of this movie I wasn’t even smiling anymore, it was that bad. The humor fell flat and became annoying as it tried to gloss over what was clearly ludicrous (no pun intended) on the screen. The emotional context between Dom and Jakob was next-level bad. And the secret-weapon-that-will-destroy-the-world-plotline was just…uninteresting.

The Fast and the Furious films have now crossed a threshold where they need to stop making movies or they’ll only make the story worse and worse. Unfortunately, it’s already been announced that there will be two more movies and considering F9 made $700 million worldwide during a global pandemic! Yeah, this ridiculousness is nowhere close to over.

I’m giving F9: The Fast Saga 1.5 out of 5 stars (the .5 is for a really well-written Star Wars joke in the film that actually was kind of perfect) and 67 out of 100.

(muttering to myself: “And just when I started to like these movies…”)

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a spectacular day.

‘Bumblebee’ Is SOOOO Cute!

Four years ago Transformers: The Last Knight came out and despite making $600 million it was very clear, the franchise felt dead. Transformers: Age of Extinction had its narrative problems but it was still quite fun to watch wit its various action scenes that were AWESOME (specifically in IMAX.) The Last Knight had some decent action scenes but even that alone couldn’t save this movie, a film that I have barely managed to see twice all the way through.

The very next year, Bumblebee entered theaters during Christmas and the film ultimately saved the franchise.

Bumblebee, starring Hailee Steinfeld and John Cena, could’ve been a disaster! A prequel Transformers movie set in the 80s’? Uh-oh. And yet, screenwriter Christina Hodson delivered a heartfelt origin story of the yellow bug-named Transformer that has warmed my heart all three times that I have seen it.

The ‘Fast and Furious 9’ Trailer Has Arrived

Fast and Furious 9 is coming to a theater near you every soon. Here’s the the nearly four-minute-long trailer to help get you pumped for the next step in the saga.

No, this isn’t the greatest trailer I’ve ever seen but it foreshadows another dumbly fun film to watch on the cusp of summer filled with explosions, action, and cool music to help amp up the already adrenaline-packed experience.

And if you’re a fan of the franchise that ending will probably have you pretty excited. Continue reading The ‘Fast and Furious 9’ Trailer Has Arrived

‘Fast and Furious 9’ Gets Its First Teaser Poster

I’ll let you know, I’m not a fan of the Fast and Furious franchise. The first film that I legitimately enjoyed (and watched twice because I liked it so much) was The Fate of the Furious which came out three years ago. Now the next film in the adrenaline-filled saga has returned and for once, I’m actually rather excited like everyone else who loves these movies. So, with no further delay, here’s the official teaser poster which arrives undoubtedly on the cusp of a teaser trailer about to premiere probably sometime later this week or early next week.

I have to say, this poster has me excited. I didn’t get a chance to see the spin-off film last year, Hobbs and Shaw, a movie that I was really thrilled to eventually feast my eyes on. I’m so intrigued in seeing the trailer and gaining an idea of where the story has gone next.

Let’s do this!

Here is the Full Cast List of James Gunn’s Reimagining of ‘Suicide Squad’

When I watched Suicide Squad for the first time last year I was immediately struck with the blaring similarities between this anti-hero team and the Guardians of the Galaxy. Like The Guardians of the Galaxy, the Suicide Squad was a bunch of misfits who were tasked with saving the world, but unlike Guardians of the Galaxy, which was helmed by James Gunn’s genius, Suicide Squad was a hot mess of a storyline laced with potential.

When Disney briefly released James Gunn after several inappropriate tweets were unearthed from Gunn’s past Warner Bros. quickly jumped on the opportunity for James Gunn to take over the Suicide Squad sequel. On Friday, James Gunn revealed the new and improved cast for what is now being called The Suicide Squad and of course, I’m here to share the list with you. Enjoy!
