Not So Fast I'm Furious
So I recently watched the fourth and latest installment of the Fast and the Furious franchise (note it was on HBO I wouldn’t waste money renting that bullshit) entitled Fast and Furious. I’ll admit that I’m not proud of it but I have to watch the good and the bad. Now I didn’t mind the first one but how many times can these Hollywood writers re-invent the same crap? This franchise always consists of people, mainly guys, who live life on the edge by racing. They pop massive boners when they talk about their fancy ass cars, which in reality take you from Point A to Point B like every other car. Furthermore, these characters are always so tough and speak in their own car jargon confusing the general audience. If you’ve seen any of these movies you know what I’m talking about. For example, Douche Bag 1: “What you got rockin’ under that hood?” Douche Bag 2: “You don’t even know bro. I’m blastin' a V6 engine upgrade with twin NOS tanks and blah blah blah. This shit is gonna take me through the finish line!” Yea it’s then going to take you right through a fucking wall. You can get the same effect driving a Toyota these days and pay half the price. I’m just asking for a little diversity. I'm not knocking the people in real life who are into this stuff that's fine. I'm just poking fun at these Hollywood morons who get paid to make this crap.
