  1. I don’t know why, but Tokyo Drift is probably my favorite, next to Fast and Furious 6.

    • Tokyo Drift is a strangely charming movie. And it doesn’t deserve our praise, but it gets it.

  2. My Netflix recommendation is Christopher Nolan’s ‘Following.’ Also, I wasn’t a huge fan of the spliced-in audio. It didn’t really add anything for me and was distracting.

    • Personally, I liked the audio a lot, especially later in the episode when they were talking about the office and stuff.

    • Still working out the kinds, Sam. We might do fewer next week so you only hear audio when it helps and we’re talking about something confusing.

  3. My favorite is Fast 5. It was such a surprising hit for the fanchise, and that final scene…

  4. The Fast and The Furious (1st one) is best for me. Last movies lost what they had in beggining, there is no tunning and such a racing, now is crime, robbing and etc important, bull***t! That isn’t the lovely F&F..but I can’t say, I still love them.

    • I think that was for the best, though. They could never replicate the first movie, so they had to do something different. Otherwise, the movies would be way too stale.
