Fast Five

More Pinto than Porsche.

Watch Video

Quick Question.

Following you saying the original Italian Job was a good car movie.

What's your opinion on the remake?

I thought people hated Speed Racer

also near the end did I see two girls make out?

They really should have put the breaks on this series, it ran out of gas after the second one.

I suddenly want to go play the Riddick games again...

That's all Vin does for me these days...Oh, and he makes me want to play D&D, too.

Question, when does this movie take place in the universe? I mean, Han's clearly in it and supposedly died in Tokyo Drift, so does that mean this took place before Tokyo Drift?

Other than that, Fast and the Furious has always been more about the cars they show than anything else. It's an opportunity for car nuts to go "OMG a Nissan Skyline r34!" The movies have and always will be subpar, but I am impressive with the cars they manage get and destroy for these movies.

I was eleven in 2002.

Second Hulk movie? ONLY HULK MOVIE!

you go tho a list of car movies without listing 'its a mad mad mad mad mad world'? for shame

I mean sure its not a car movie in a classic sense but pretty much the whole movie is an extended car chase at lowerspeeds

Don't worry Bob Cars 2 can in no way be as bad as this, even if it ends up being the worst thing Pixar makes.

The statham joke at the end make me crack up.

You think Fast 5 will be better than Cars 2?
I mean, I'm horrified they're even making a Cars 2, but damn.

I like most of these films (except for Tokyo Drift) so I will take this as a recommendation by you :D

EDIT: I'm happy to throw myself in as douchebag rather than casually dismiss a lot of other people as douchebags because they like a movie I don't like. It feels a little scummy and elitest :D

Also, Wow I was only 10 in 2002

Wow, wow, wow, wow, wow, wow, wow, wow, wow, wow, wow, wow, wow, wow...*I can keep this up all day*...
Don't shit on Cars 2. It's Pixar, ffs.

... and by Speed racer you mean the Anime not the movie right?
RIGHT?

I thought the second was good, but when I rented Tokyo Drift... well I gave up on the series... even though 4 was suppose to be really good. I guess I just grew out of them...

Also, you mention The Italian Job, one of my favorites. I actually got that movie after watching the remake. So my question simply is what did you think of the remake? and BTW, I hope to God you were joking about Speed Racer...

Why do you have such a low expectation for Cars 2? Cars 1 wasn't bad, it was just the least-good Pixar film, if that makes sense.

I can't stop laughing at the "Family, loyality, car, car etc" Also wow you mention Speed Racer (by all mean I liked the film even when it's cheesy) as the better car film than Fast Five.

I came so close to having to sit through this last night with friends. Glad to know I didn't miss anything, not that I needed you to tell me that Bob. I'm sad to say that I know we would have walked out of that movie and I would have been pointing out some of the awful things about it and my friends would have blown me off and just said, "That was great!". Cause those are the kinds of friends I have.

Speed Racer is a much better movie than any of the "Fast" movies. It's not going to win any awards, but I can't remember the last time I had as much fun watching a movie as I did seeing Speed Racer.

I thought you'd like this a little bit because of the T&A, So I guess that sucked in this then.

Fast 5 is basically a Bromance movie for people who found the 'plots' of The Transporter movies too hard to follow.

I loved the "Avengers for douchebags" line.

Glad to see someone else like Death Proof and Speed Racer.

"I'm not the target audience, but that won't stop me from passing judgment on this film or anyone who might like it?"

Oh, Bob. You so silly.

I'm speechless. Come on FF III, FF IV, FF V. At least Rocky started as a great movie before sinking. Now for the Rio de Janeiro part... Well sufice to say when I see this movie I'll have an opinion about that part. But you can not expect much from FF, eh?

Lol, so that's where the Jesus fish comes from!

This review was kind of like Yahtzee reviewing a Wii title: what's the point?
I mean the dumping on it was funny as hell, yes, but the review itself is kind of a forgone conclusion. Of course Bob is going to hate this movie. Of course I MYSELF am going to hate it (if I ever go to see it, which I wont). Why not take the time to review something that wont necessarily be so obvious to everyone? There has to be other stuff out right now...

Oh, Bob. You so silly.

I'm an 11 year old time traveler :p

"Family"

"Loyalty"

"Honor"

"Cars"

"Cars"

"Cars"

"Import Cars"

"Caaaaaaaaaaaaaars"

I laughed my ass off at that.

The funny thing about Brazil is the gangsters really rules the country.

God I LOVE the original Italian Job, especially the scene in which they use a bicycle to take out a whole city´s electricity, it may have been a state´s electricity or just the electricity of a few houses but just the fact that it was done by throwing a bicycle makes it uber awesome.

I was a bit surprised by the Cars 2 bit near the end. I thought Bob worshiped Pixar?

In what universe is a Cars sequel a good idea? It was easily Pixar's weakest movie, and there's nothing in what you hear of the plot that looks like a good idea. The fear is in grinding down a decent movie the way Dreamworks did with Shrek (3&4 should never have happened...).

I love your little one-frame reviews that you insert into these. What better endorsement for Torque could there possibly be than "One word: Bike-fu"?

At least I got one must-watch movie out of this!

That's all Vin does for me these days...Oh, and he makes me want to play D&D, too.

His best performance will always be as the Iron Giant. That's how I going to remember good ol' Vin.

This series is objectively pretty bad. But, I've seen a few of them, and honestly enjoyed them. Then again, I'm into cars, and can overlook quite a lot of bad acting, cliched story, and stereotypical characters if there's sufficient car porn. I'm sure this one won't be any different. I can definitely wait until it's out on DVD, though...

It's a real pity Vin Diesel's career didn't take of like it should have; you know, after Saving Private Ryan, The Iron Giant and Pitch Black...

I would love to see him in a Zack Snyder flick or something along those lines.
