A Fast Moustache ReWatch | The Fast Saga

The cinemas are open again, which means the new films that we've been waiting a long time to see are finally starting to arrive. One of those is the latest Fast  movie, something I hadn't originally planned to see, but then I figured it's another movie to enjoy on the big screen. Which got me thinking, why not binge the entire franchise before I do. Some of those movies I haven't watched in years. I kinda stole this idea from a journalist with The Guardian; Tim Jonze . He watched all eight of the Fast & Furious movies in 24 hours, and was changed by it. You can find his article here , it makes for a hilarious read. I'm not quite as crazy he is, I did it in about three days.  This all begins - surprisingly enough - where it all started, with The Fast and the Furious . I was in high school when this came out, so obviously I thought it was great; cool cars and lots of fast driving. What's not for a teenager to like? Although, even back then I wasn't cool e

Fast & Furious 9 | Average Guy Movie Review

Old enemies emerge from the shadows forcing the team back into high-octane battle. This time, however, the family will be tested like never before, because the one threatening the world used to be part of that family. Justin Lin returns to the franchise that put him on the map, to helm yet another physics-defying action fest. This time  the team face a challenge that hits all too close to home. All families have history, and Dom's is coming back to haunt him, giving us a glimpse at one of the major turning points in his life. One which explains why he holds his family so dear. But between all the new and returning characters, and the intertwining/rejigged plotlines that they bring with them, it's all starting to get a bit jumbled. The timeline is a mess. It doesn't help that the majority  of the new developments - most of which continue the pattern of trying to fix or alter what has gone before - go almost entirely unexplained. Simply put, they've tried to do too much,

Fast & Furious 9 | Moustache Trailer Reaction

The first trailer for Fast & Furious 9 has landed, and as you'd expect it looks more insane than the last instalment... if that's possible. If you haven't seen the trailer, check it out below.  It all starts with Dom (Vin Diesel) and Letty (Michelle Rodriguez) living on a farm, having traded their fast cars for the quiet life in order to raise little Brian. But trouble is always around the corner, and once again Dom will have to put his crew of super secret agent drivers back together, to face a new foe, and an old one too. Get ready for a lot of conversations about "family". This is where the issues begin with this trailer. I'm not talking about the ludicrous nature of Fast & Furious and the way it plays fast and loose with the laws of physics. No, I'm referring to the fact that it's loaded with spoilers. We're introduced to Jacob (John Cena) - the movie's big bad - who Roman (Tyrese) describes as a "master thief

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2: Average Guy Movie Review

The adventures of Groot and co. continue in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, and lets face it, everyone is desperate to see Baby Groot in action. After saving the galaxy from Ronan the Accuser the Guardians are working as mercenaries, offering their services to the highest bidder. When one of the team (shall we say) liberates a precious item from one of their clients it triggers a chain of events that not only lead to Peter Quill (Chris Pratt) meeting his father, Ego (Kurt Russell) but to the Guardians having to save the galaxy once again. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 has been described as a continuation of the team's story rather than a sequel and that's pretty accurate.  As with all sequels, James Gunn is able to expand the universe, he  stated in an interview that most of the unanswered questions from the first movie would be answered in Vol. 2. The story picks up three months after the first Guardians movie with one of the most entertaining opening credits sequenc
