Michael:

with me. With me.

Anthony:

I said that would be a first.

Michael:

Okay, here you go. All right. So I want you to guess some things and one of them I want you to guess is the oh wait a second. Do I not have it on here? The fuck? I totally fucked. Well, it's okay. I on the fly. I can I can make this happen. Haha. My my notes are incomplete.

Anthony:

No, of course.

Michael:

It's okay. But it's okay. It's okay. Okay, what do you think they spent to make this movie?

Anthony:

Okay, so last one. It was I believe he said, like, up to 250 million. It's like 190 to 250. Yeah, this one has a sub in it in more cars. And he's got assume it keeps going up. But I don't know if it went up too much. Because that's a lot of money for the last one. Um, so this one I'll say 260. That's what I guess. Last one. I'll do it for this one.

Michael:

You are a cheater. You're a cheater? cheater. Pumpkin Eater.

Anthony:

What was it?

Michael:

I'm not cheating pumpkin eater it. There's a range and could you get based on what you said? If I said that there's a range and I said you're a cheater. What do you think the range was? 250 to 260.

Anthony:

I don't know.

Michael:

You told me that. Up to 270 because what's right enough? Is 260 so there's the cheater. Damn,

Anthony:

I just explained why I picked that. I just explained why I picked that number. That's about the range for this movie. I can't at this point. I did not cheat. I think. Stinky dickhole

Michael:

that's your seat you're getting to be you're just so passive aggressive. What's your? What do you think? What do you think of made in the box office then?

Anthony:

I really have no idea. I'm gonna I don't know if this one crossed a billion. But I'll say it did. Because I can't I don't know if I could drop off that much. I don't know. Let's say 1.1 billion.

Michael:

You are light again. It's 1.236 1,236,000,000. Okay, this is a billion dollar franchise

Anthony:

it is but for the most part, some drop off because the Paul Walker thing. That's a big part of what drove the

Michael:

last I gave you that. So I guess you know, whatever. Okay, so knowing all this, what do you think the critics thought of this movie?

Anthony:

I don't know. Because after the score they gave seven. I'm fucking shocked that they liked that one so much.

Michael:

I'm shocked that you didn't. There you go.

Anthony:

Oh, let's see. I guess it's lower. But I don't know how much. I was 73 lower than your score. 73%

Michael:

it's lower than that. Actually, it's 67 or 67. But if you were giving it a score and your scale, you probably give a 10 probably anyways, probably out of 100% I'm saying like, you know, like, but anyways. And knowing what the knowing what the critics thought of this. What do you think the audience thought of it? Um, I know Pardon me? Ah, fuck, I fucked that up. My notes backwards.

Anthony:

Damn, dude.

Michael:

I just told you the audience. The I'm gonna just tell you. The critics are actually 70 What did you say the critics? What would you say the critics were? Three. It's 72 Oh, there you go. And I fucking ruined it. And told you the audience. scored it at 67 though. Okay, I fuckin told you that. I'm sorry, man. But, but weirdly, the audience is low to me. Yeah. Oh, oh,

Anthony:

well, you know, I don't I wonder if there's a Paul Walker effect from that some people because he's not in it. Well, I mean,

Michael:

I'm, I'm with you on this one. Is that's why I gave the last one such a high rating is because it was good. And I think it might the series might have reached its zenith based on the movies we have after it. Like we've watched them all, at least I have. And it's kind of the peak of the seven was in my opinion, but hey, what do I know? So I'm gonna give you some. Okay, let

Anthony:

me What are you doing now?

Michael:

Let me see. I'm just making sure I didn't fuck up the radio, the reviews and put them out of order too. Oh, God, please. So, the good review the good review why Rob McDonald of the Seattle Times. Said as I drive home in a car that seems sadly non badass. I wondered how long this unlikely irresistible franchise might last? Probably as long as it wants to. That's what they thought of that. And then this guy has a great name. You'll like this bill. Goody. Koontz. Good accounts. Bill. Goody Coots. Yeah, goody. And Koontz put together giggity giggity giggity of the Arizona Giga couth of The Arizona Republic. The movie is the third cheeseburger the fourth beer, the fifth Ice Ice Cream Sandwich. It's gluttony which is kind of enjoyable when you're in the middle of committing it, but leaves you feeling sluggish and remorseful later. I thought that was a good review. That would have been I mean, it really is a great view.

Anthony:

That would have been my review of seven. If I could put it into words.

Michael:

Well, you obviously aren't a good reviewer then a movies you kind of suck.

Anthony:

Yes, you suck.

Michael:

So there you go. Okay. So now we're getting a portion where we're going to give you some synopsis and tell you stuff. Are you ready for this?

Anthony:

I'm ready.

Michael:

Are you gonna want to read first?

Anthony:

I'll read first. When you go for buddy. Okay, thank you. Alright, so uh, after defeating decherd Shah and mosaica Conde DOM and Letty are on their honeymoon in Havana when Dom's cousin Fernando gets in trouble owing money to local racer Ronaldo censing Ronaldo is a loan shark Dom challenges into a race pitting Fernando's piece of shit car as Adam Sandler Sandler would say, against Renata, a rock sweet ride and wagering his own 1961 Chevy Impala after narrowly winning the race and destroying Fernando's car in the process Dom lets Ronaldo keep his car just because he wants the respect. That's enough. And then he leaves his cousin with his own car is all about respect.

Michael:

So, anyways, so yeah, man, it's pretty cool. Um, so we, like I said, the, this franchise gets away from the street racing. This is kind of a street racing thing. But it's not like the other ones. I mean, it has some similarities. But it seems more for a purpose than just for the just racing sake. You know, like, there's a stakes involved and family and response specs. It's more than that we haven't seen we haven't seen this kind of race since the first one. The very first one and the third. That's more important. Yeah. Yeah. That's like an ode to Paul Walker there I think. And yeah, they mentioned him in the when they're doing this too. They have the fuckin where he puts that soda can turbo on the car and I talked about how Buster used to do this. Yeah. So you get the the poor man's turbo trick the Buster used to play. Yeah, yeah. So anyways, yeah, so yeah, it seems like he's all over. his fingerprints are all over that whole thing. makes you want to go to Havana though, doesn't it? At the time when this was shot he could.

Anthony:

Makes me my Cuban sandwich. What was that makes me want a Cuban sandwich. Fuck you.

Michael:

I want one from where you live to. Oh, yes. Those are mine. Have you gone back there?

Anthony:

We got it again. Yes.

Michael:

Oh, okay. Good. Good. Good.

Anthony:

Right after you guys. So

Michael:

JC we ended up getting it. us. It was there.

Anthony:

We did get it while you were there.

Michael:

You got a dip show. You could have got me another one. While I was there. You didn't ask. I need the fifth. I need that fifth cheeseburger. Whatever that fucker was saying and

Anthony:

this ice cream. Third cheeseburger fourth beer fifth Ice Cream Sandwich.

Michael:

Yeah, I need that. So now you remember my lines. Go fuck yourself. Somebody's got to. Ah, yeah, um, I do like it. We in this scene. And these scenes we hear the pitbulls patented call out before he starts rapping or whatever. Yeah. I don't know if anybody knows what that is. If you don't know it, pit bull. If he's in a song, you'll know he's coming because he'll do this little yellow thing. So if you have never noticed before, you should notice now every time you hear it's pretty strange, but it's kind of cool at the same time. Now the race is kind of ridiculous. I don't think there's any way Dom with his superpowers could have beat this guy with that piece of junk. There's just no way.

Anthony:

No, that should have exploded five blocks back. But again, Dom is the best writer in the world.

Michael:

I mean, the first thing he does is he started tearing the car apart to make it lighter.

Unknown:

Making it lighter baby. Take off everything except for the steering wheel.

Michael:

Yeah, which you know, technically Wouldn't that just because the weight but it would I would add drag though. I thought but what do I know? The drag is also a problem. Just as bad as wait. Well, you obviously know racist and drag racing on. Do you

Anthony:

see what I did there? Well,

Michael:

I watched Yeah, I did watch the movie. The Well no, I didn't watch all these previous movies. Let's put that way. Yes, I watch. I watch. I know. My brain I tell you sometimes I get that fog. Days of Thunder taught me a lot about racing and everything I know. Isn't that movie. And you gotta be shaped like a bullet. And he wasn't shaped like a bullet.

Anthony:

That's all I'm saying. He was shaped more like a US shotgun shell.

Michael:

Yeah, and he did give he did give a new meaning to racing till the wheels fall off on this. Yeah,

Anthony:

of course he has to jump.

Michael:

literally put that like

Anthony:

sprained shoulder or anything.

Michael:

No, that's bad. So he ditched that car awesome. Let's you know that's that's that's what we know to be the hallmark of this series is that you can get away with shit. Yeah, pay for it. Everything well, mostly we'll we'll talk about later he paid a little bit in this one first thing. I'm gonna go on and read the next one. Are you ready?

Anthony:

I hold on. Okay, yeah, I'm ready. What did you have to do that made you have to want to psych myself saying

Michael:

that the fuck with me? Yeah, pretty much. Oh, yeah. Okay, psych yourself up, tickle your own feet. It works for me. The next day and elusive cyber terrorist named cipher. coerces Dom into working for her by showing him an unseen photo or video on her phone. Shortly afterwards, Luke Hobbs recruits DOM and his team, comprising Letty, Rowan Pierce, Tez, Parker and Ramsey to help him retrieve an EMP device from a military outpost in Berlin. During the getaway, Dom goes rogue, forcing Hobbs off the road and stealing the vite the device for cipher, Hobbs gets arrested and locked up in the same high security prison which Olds don't shop after. After decades and decades and Hobbs both escaped the prison intelligence operative Mr. Nobody and his protege, Eric Reisner dubbed little nobody by Ted recruits decherd and Hobbs to help the team find DOM and capture cipher. decherd revealed that cipher had hired his brother Oh, and to steal the night shade device, and mosey Gioconda, Gioconda to steal God's eye Ramsey's software program. The team tracks DOM and cipher to their place of moments before the ladder to attack the base causing injuries to the team and stealing gods. I obviously got the God's eye back. Yeah. Yeah,

Anthony:

so so it didn't throw. Remember? Yeah,

Michael:

I know. I know. Okay, I didn't. I've watched this movie. But I don't know what they use it for. I like you know, stupid. God's eyes a dumb idea. It's to find Waldo Batman idea. That's what it is. Yeah, true. I find Waldo. What do you think about how the What do you think about Charlie's Terran in this movie? Me and your cipher.

Anthony:

She she's, I don't like her. I like her in the role, but I don't like that.

Michael:

But that's I mean,

Anthony:

yes, cipher. You're like,

Michael:

she's evil.

Anthony:

She is fucking evil. personified. Damn. Yeah,

Michael:

she truly is pretty bad. I that's no remorse kind of person.

Anthony:

You just say that?

Unknown:

Yeah. Yeah, he she, she doesn't care. She's gonna do whatever she wants to get what she wants. But she is what Ronda Rousey was in seven, but with acting skills,

Anthony:

stone cold.

Michael:

Killer with a with, but but didn't look wooden. Right. So right. Um, but I do think what they do to us here is when she tells us all this, they tell us the whole plot of this movie. right up front other than the reason, right? Yeah, yeah, we know everything except for the one little detail. So we know everything that's going to happen in this movie other than the outrageous stunts and the reason we're doing it. That's kind of crazy. If you ask me.

Anthony:

Why don't we usually know that? I don't know. I just don't we know that in all of them. This is your mission? No, this is your mission.

Michael:

We did. We didn't know like they were going to play. We didn't know that the they'd had to defeat Gioconda and Shah at the end of seven when it started. We just thought they were running from Sean. And the first thing we learned wasn't that it actually dripped to us. Oh, no, Mr. Nobody has an agenda. And then this and then that looks like this one. It's like she captures it tells him Hey, you're doing this or, and then all of a sudden, the whole thing is laid out. Like that's it. Like you say know what's going on? You don't know why.

Anthony:

And you don't know how it's gonna go down. So yeah.

Unknown:

That's all whatever. Hey, don't don't be mean to me. Why are you being mean to me?

Anthony:

Because I feel like it.

Michael:

That's not nice. You're not I'm the one you're the one who deserves to be beat the shit down. That's all I'm saying. I'm still emotionally scarred by you. So,

Anthony:

Buster.

Michael:

Do you think and I just want to ask do you think this movie was inspired by the song? It came in like a wrecking ball? Or by watching Miley? Miley. Yeah, Hannah Montana. I was about to say

Anthony:

it very well. Could have been

Michael:

came in like a wrecking ball. Very bear. Yeah, that's that was because that scene was pretty, pretty cool. I have to say, but that's what you expect from this franchise. That type of that type of thing. You know, it was it was pretty good. I liked it. As one of my favorites. I don't know. If you enjoyed it doesn't sound like you particularly have thoughts on it.

Anthony:

I will hold my thoughts. Is it that bad? Are you trying to pester you I will hold my thoughts right now. For that, keep going. Okay. Okay, whatever. What else? Now, here's

Michael:

my thing. How is Dom doing 200 miles an hour and a Dodge Charger app makes that means that Dodge Charger is a supercar.

Anthony:

Yes. It is.

Unknown:

Put in the red.

Anthony:

That's all he put in the red shirt.

Michael:

Oh, you could put that in fantasy time. It ain't going that fast. That's the key.

Anthony:

He's got all this

Michael:

shit, but he was not

Anthony:

he's got a lot of shit at his disposal. When he does these missions and these heists, okay? He can put whatever the fuck he wants in that car make it go fast.

Michael:

True. He's got unlimited resources because he always has an unlimited resource partner. That's how that works. That's how it works. That's just how it works. The but it wasn't cool how he wrecked Hobbs. They had a whole bromance going and, and all that. And then all of a sudden, it's like, What what? Why

Anthony:

was that necessary to run him off the road? He got you a pardon. I don't know. Well, right out loud.

Michael:

Yeah, you could have waited till later. And then like done a little thing you were you just say, Hey, man, I'm taking this and threatened to shoot him if he doesn't give it to you. He could have done that could have done that. Although, maybe Dom didn't really want to threaten life. And he knew that if he wrecked him, it'd be easier and he knew he'd survive it because

Anthony:

they survive everything.

Michael:

Except for gunshots. You know, that's it. You can flip your car. So know that Dom's got shot in the shoulder. Um, was shot, he'd survived.

Anthony:

Oh, he pulled that ball out himself. He didn't care. Now.

Michael:

Something that happened in this movie that spawned its own spin off was Hobbs and Shaw right in the prison. Yeah, they make the best frenemies because I guess they would adlib all their lines. And that's why Yeah. And they thought their chemistry was so good. Because, you know, the rock would say his stupid shit that he just made up on the set. And so they thought it was so good. They want to make a movie out of it. That's why that happened. It's crazy. If you asked me like, and it's not a bad movie. I watched it. But I have thoughts we're gonna give them. Alright. That's our next one we're doing but I have thoughts on it. I'm just gonna tell you. It's sometimes when you take a piece of something that you love a lot. Like, if there were a movie just about Han, that wasn't tokyo drift. That was actually good. Yeah. Would we love that? I don't know. Do we only do we need Han just to make this cooler? Because to me, it has if we had harmed by himself, would it be as cool? You know what I mean? I don't know. And that's why I think the Hobbs and Shaw thing I think it's good, but I don't know. Okay. I think we need I think we need more wifebeaters and burning stairs, you think so for it to balance out.

Anthony:

So do you think that like, um, did had had Hobbs and Shaw just been its own movie? outside of the Fast and Furious Rome? You would have liked it more? I think without a tie in or anything.

Michael:

I think I'd like to just as much okay. But I don't know that I would have wanted to watch it as much. I think it'd been more throwaway. Okay, like I because it's not a part of something but it's a problem. It's I it feels different when you watch it. It feels different than all of these movies. That's all we'll say. It feels different. Okay, so I don't know what to say beyond that. I got it's like, I don't know how to put it it actually Hey, it's more like a Marvel movie to these you know, compared to these

Anthony:

that's the first time maybe ever that you actually said something that made sense so I get you I'll go with it.

Michael:

All right, there you go. You made some now I do like the prison escape scene Do you like yeah, where they both get to the end there and they get to the thing and they get out mister nobody just kind of predicting it. Well, I like it

Anthony:

I like just the beginning of it when they're shit talking back and forth between each other and all sudden the gates open like Yeah,

Michael:

well

Anthony:

all this shit man if this gate if this door all right now and then all sudden.

Michael:

And they and the thing is is what's the first thing to do not fight each other. They go to escape. What the fuck, you know, you know at that point, is that weird how Hobbs goes into I'ma escape prisoner mode. Rather than no law enforcement. No,

Anthony:

Hobbes wasn't doing that. He was going out. He was no he was going after shot to keep him from escaping. You need to watch that.

Michael:

I thought he was trying to escape. Oh, he went whatever. Huh? Oh, yeah, yeah. Yeah, we

Anthony:

have already turned down a chance to get out of there. He said he was gonna do it the right way. He was not trying to fucking escape.

Michael:

Oh, that's true cuz he already was asked he was offered.

Anthony:

Sorry, man. It's going after Sean keep Shah from escaping. God. Yeah. My opinions and only even understand what's going on.

Michael:

Oh, yeah. Hey, hey, now does it really matter? Kinda yeah tea and crumpets eaten Sunnah you tea and crumpets eating some bad pitch I love that line

Anthony:

maker

Michael:

oh there's so much you know they get out of there so the when when they get out of there I think it's just so crazy how many of them are so super now like like I said like Tez is now we've we've we now know he can fight like a badass yeah and now not only he goes from number the second movie just being a guy who owns a shop with cars and parties in the back to now he's super spy tech guy. Yeah it's like it's gone to another level like I don't even know I don't even know how how we got there. I don't know. I know there's been some years but

Anthony:

there has and that's what I think I think you just keep seeming You seem to be under the assumption that in between big world saving jobs, they're just sitting on the beach sipping mai Tai's and they're not doing anything else.

Michael:

They should be fucking fucking a why shouldn't they?

Anthony:

They're rich. They can do what they want. They're millionaires. So yeah, they're gonna study martial arts actually gonna fuckin do everything that they did the matrix. They're gonna learn all the shit that we

Michael:

did see what he does. And this movie, because doesn't he go up to that atm? And they're like, Hey, man, why don't you share some of that with me? Yeah, but then

Anthony:

he's doing other stuff though.

Michael:

Like, you think? Yeah, I think he's evolving. Like, like Rome, on his jet, or whatever. Wherever he's doing these days. Wherever he's at. Yeah. I doubt that dude's evolving. He's not evolving for Allen ROMs evolving. Yeah, he's not evolving.

Anthony:

tengiz doing all this cuz he's still trying to get Ramsay.

Michael:

Yeah. Well, yeah. He called dip. He called Dibs. Call call dibs. call dibs. He called called Dibs. Oh, man. So the complicated part is when the one site when they show up to Mr. Nobody's facility. Yeah, that was some shit. Yeah, that you know, in fashion and that he? Yeah. And then she kisses Dom right in front of me like she doesn't God give no fucks at all. No, give no fuck. That was that was I just like, I like that. And they still gods. I walk the fuck out. That's pretty much what they want. Yeah, it makes me wonder how secret Mr. Nobody is I guess he's not secret from her. You know? Like, I guess she can find anybody cipher. My thing is, why did she need Gods if she can find that base? What the fuck? You know? I guess don't make it easier. Is that all? You know, whatever. It's

Anthony:

not that she still wants it. Because then she has all the power. She just doesn't want somebody else to have that power. That's why she wants all this. Yeah, she wants to be in control of the world. Yeah, she is the doctor evil of this movie franchise.

Michael:

Now, I believe at this point, because we get a scene where Dom learns that shot Shaw's brother was only working for cipher. And I think at this point, you know before we know what happens the rest of the movie is where Dom makes a choice to help Shah after realizing his he was only avenging family. I think that's what it is. Like I think I even even the original thing that he did to try and kill Dom I think Dom still respects Shaw for his principles that way like I think he doesn't general family. So about I just think it I think once he talked to cipher, you know, on that jet and found out a little more information. I think it changed it even further. And that's why what happens in this movie happens. Are you ready to go? Are you ready to say the next thing?

Anthony:

Hell yeah. I'm gonna do it furiously. Make it happen. Alright, so Roman, though. What? Got what? Go ahead.

Michael:

I said oh, but don't do it too faded. Don't do it too faded Lee though. I don't know. Go ahead. Shut up. That's a bad line.

Anthony:

That was so sad. Oh, God. All right. So now at this point, well, Roman brings up the idea that they call Brian in to help them on why don betrayed the team. But ledi rejects the ideas. They made a promise not to bring him in Mia into any more dangerous activities for the sake of the children, which we'll get to in a second. But when Dom questions ciphers motives, she reveals that she is held hostage Dom's ex lover Alaina nevus and their son of whose existence Dom was unaware, Elena tells Dom that she wanted him to decide the child's first name had already given him the middle name, Marcos. There we go. So I touched on this. We got a, we talked, we didn't discuss this during the episode when we talked about seven. And I know, yes, they had to do their storyline for Brian no longer to be part of the team because of the children and staying home. But I still and I get that you had to you had to, you know, you had to change the story. So because Paul Walker was no longer with us. But at the same time, I'm still like that that's gonna be your story because she's having another child. So the first child that just wasn't important enough to keep Britain at risk your life. But now two kids Okay, now it's now it's a big deal. Now. I can't go out anymore.

Michael:

Yeah. I mean, that's, that's what you did mention that. I mean, I get it

Anthony:

fuck off to his son then. Like, yeah, I agree.

Michael:

Later, hopefully his son doesn't know later.

Anthony:

One. not that important. That's okay, too. Okay. Just come on.

Michael:

I will. I agree. But I think in this section, we, I think it's poorly report reason for motivation. After knowing when they already have one. I think they could have said something else. Like they could have said this last time he came so close that to dying, that I don't think we could risk it any more. You know, he already has the one. They could have worded it differently and gave him a different, you know, yeah, saying, you know, what, we saw how dangerous it was. And I think really, this is it. This we're done, you know, that type of thing. You know, like, not Oh, now he has another one. That's the reason, right? That's, that's not a good at all. But there is a big reveal here. It's things are made pretty clear for us. And we know why he's there. And what video he saw and what pictures he saw. Yes. Because he wasn't aware of the kid had no idea. And yeah, but he didn't know about the kid. Actually, I don't think he knew about the kid prior to seeing when we saw it on the thing. I think he only saw laina before you think so. And then with the picture. Yeah. And then yeah. Then the kid was revealed to us at the same time. He learned it. Yeah. Yeah, that's, that was a big reveal, man. Dom having a kid and you wonder how Letty feels about that. Dom. You are the Father.

Anthony:

That was our that was our moment, right there.

Michael:

Yeah, yeah. And you know, it's funny, you're you, you're talking about how there's things that you don't like and plot holes and stuff. And I actually have a note here where I feel that this franchise has to spell out so much because it's constantly shifting the narrative of the reasonings that they do things, you know, like they're constantly making up a new reason. So they've got to make changes and f9 is a no exception to this, by the way,

Anthony:

not at all.

Michael:

Thanks, we retcon the crap out of that one, too. So it's, it's it's pretty crazy. Now the middle name of the kid you know, that's her debt. Her her dead husband's? Yes, my name yet Marcos? Okay. I didn't know if he did that. Yes. I personally, would have named the kid Michael. It's a good name. It's not after me. I'm not saying I want because that's my name. I just think it is a good name. Michael's a good name. No, there's no vanity there.

Anthony:

Well see, Michael was good name for me growing up because of Michael Myers. Then I met you and it fucking ruined it. So Michael is off. I'm sorry. It's okay. But I'm just saying.

Michael:

So. Here's the thing. And this is, it's interesting that his first kid isn't with ledi. But now that he has, when is he going to retire at a beach somewhere?

Anthony:

Considering there's an F nine going to be f 10? And f 11? No.

Michael:

I know. That's a sad part. And then we get to see he hangs up on the which is interesting how early in this movie this this this happened? He hangs the crucifix Yes. Outside of the thing and and later on in the movie we learned at that we find out

Anthony:

why

Michael:

actually has Yeah, the tracker and it's so so it's interesting that this early in the movie, we get that get that scene? Because that means he had to know as soon as he had an opportunity to get something like cuz Yeah. I mean, that's crazy to get that because he hadn't met with the Shaw's mother yet. Right. No. So he I don't even know where he got it. I don't even know where he got that thing. That's a good question. You know, trying to think about where he got that crucifix. With the thank tracker in it. Maybe always has one. Last one. It says Dom? Yeah, like it was done. It was given to him by Hobbes.

Anthony:

He just I mean, that's the crucifix. It's the same one. He just had a tracker put in it. And I don't know if that was part of his whole master plan or it was just a way to be able to track it to track them. Okay, something would go bad. I

Michael:

don't know. Maybe Mr. Nobody gave him one. He says push this button and we'll find you anywhere. So there you go. So are you ready? Is it my turn right? Yeah is your turn? I'll give you the next one. Are you ready? Okay, I'm ready. I'm in New York City cipher sends Dom to retrieve a nuclear football held by the Russian Minister of Defense. Prior to the theft, Dom briefly evade cipher with the help of Ronaldo and persuades decherd and Owens mother, Magdalene to help him out cipher hacks into the electronic system of mini cars remotely controlling them via auto drive, causing them to disable the convoy so that Dom can take the football so they fumble. The team intercepts DOM and their vehicles but Dom escapes shooting and seemingly killing decherd in the process. ledi catches up to them but as ambushed and nearly killed by ciphers enforcer Connor Rhodes, before Dom stops him from killing ledi in retaliation cipher has roads execute a tight up Alayna in front of helpless helpless Dom threatening to kill his son next. Alright, there's a little bit to unpack in there.

Anthony:

There is first and foremost does with that goddamn mask on look like fucking JSON or he's in Bane had a kid.

Michael:

Pretty bad ass Really?

Anthony:

Was that?

Michael:

I don't know, man. But it's it's pretty pretty badass. I think so. That's my thoughts. My thoughts not mine. Because

Anthony:

you know what? I'm fan Dom shouldn't need a fucking Dom's superhuman. knocking him

Michael:

Yeah, he

Anthony:

doesn't wear body armor. He has fucking tank tops on all the time when he's doing all these crazy fucking right off the cliff. Backward off my ass stunts. But for this, I might want to gear up. What the hell?

Michael:

Yeah. Yeah. My one gear up. Speaking of gear it up. Um, what about the toy shop? Did you like that? Cars you'd want? Yeah, yeah. In the end, the guy wrote on the forklift. He called him planta Yak Santa's gonna bring him that car. It's why. Yeah, he wants that neon orange one, which comes in the story later, right? That's funny as shit. But, but in New York is where things get going because Dom schemes a little bit and he figures out a way to evade the eye of cipher. And give it goes as you saw Charles mother. I don't know for how long. We really don't get it.

Anthony:

They said five minutes. We don't really know. They said you have fire? We

Michael:

don't. But we don't know how long they talked. Yeah.

Anthony:

Which I thought too. That seems like I don't know. Maybe it seems like it would take more in five minutes because he got walks in there. And he's super calm, taken his time to start the discussion. Like, dude, you got five minutes.

Michael:

Dom Yeah, I got to get the looks. You know, you

Anthony:

talk about the vaapi. Dom also managed to invade every street cop in the city. How do you go fly in? Like 120? across the bridge into town Don't get so much as a fucking radar gun on you. Don't ever get speeding tickets?

Michael:

Well just say have you been down in New York City before? Yes. So, but still, how can you go 100 mile an hour anywhere in New York City.

Anthony:

That's what I want to know. Going into the city on the bridge going into this? Yeah. fuckin flying around everybody.

Michael:

There's probably cameras aren't there?

Anthony:

There should be yes. They have cameras for the tolls.

Michael:

Yeah. Hey, you know, you're gonna be flying through that toll. So that'll get you. I don't know if it's no speed, but I'm sure they definitely figure out what it gets you for it. The thing is, that's after the fact they'd be mailing that to you. So yeah, I don't know if that would work.

Anthony:

I just wonder if they at least gave him EZ Pass for his car.

Michael:

He has. He's got EZ Pass. They had to register with it for Cypher. $25. That's funny.

Anthony:

cipher Smith.

Michael:

Yeah, cipher Smith. The the plane that she's flying in, though they're doing all this hacking from there, there is no way they're pulling the bandwidth they need in a plane? Because Have you? Have you ever you know, Satellite Internet is not that it's reliable. But it's not that fast. Now, unless you have like a whole the access to the whole bandwidth because typically, the way it works is they partition it so that not any one person can get all the bandwidth. So I don't even know how they would do that. I'm gonna assume she has a workaround for that. Maybe because my gosh, because one he had to keep bouncing off of different satellites because the satellites move, you know, actually they are static orbit. So if you're moving, you have to find another one. When you move out of it's out of range. I'm assuming she flies all over the world.

Anthony:

Right. That's why I'm assuming private jets Air Force One. Those kinds Planes probably have workarounds for that, or a way to get quality bandwidth. I'm sure she does as well.

Michael:

Okay, Air Force One. I'll give Air Force One that but you're telling me some private citizen, who just happened to be a good hacker can hack into something that could probably be encoded point or bandwidth.

Anthony:

Mr. Nobody probably has it. Okay about that, Mr. Nobody? Yeah, he's as good as Air Force One. He's as private of a citizen as you can get. Because he is Mr. Nobody. She doesn't.

Michael:

She doesn't have his jet. That's all I'm saying. She doesn't have his Did you. So when we get into this, and they start to do the, to damage the convoy with the Russian Minister? Yeah. Did you like did you like the zombie car sequence?

Anthony:

The zombie car? Yes. Okay.

Michael:

I mean, unrealistic as shit,

Anthony:

it was told that it was okay. But again, you're like, so my thing with it was? How are you at the same time manually controlling? Because, I mean, they're getting cars coming out of parking lots and off of parking lots into the street. But like, how are you able to manually control each one to get them to drive where you want them to? You know what I mean? It would be like it would seem like you've got, like, that's what I'm trying to figure out how that would work. Like, how are you switching off to each car? Or is it like, you know, or is it where you're fucking

Michael:

I think it's just a basic command,

Anthony:

parachutes and your parachute theory? From Part Seven? Yeah, there's GPS tells you to follow the dot, you follow the dot and your car lands on the ground.

Michael:

You push a dot and then you and then you have a finger that can swipe all the cars and they go to the dot. That's it. There you go. You got it. Okay, what they did was they, they they tapped into the Jeep because most cars have a GPS now. They tapped in and found and then said, go to this GPS, and then I'll go to that car. Yeah. Now, so

Anthony:

you don't hold on. If you were rolling in a 1996. Toyota Camry, you're safe. Your car is unaffected. Yeah. Okay.

Michael:

Yeah. Go drive new shit. That's what the rules are. Keep it old school. Yeah, young controllable man. School drive a V dub from 1960s simple. The the the standoff with the team is pretty cool. I do like that where they shoot him with the wires and and the DOM can't be held by silly wires because his car's 3000 horsepower. So I'm sure you know what the fuck his car I mean, really? Yeah. Very much ridiculous scene.

Anthony:

This is literally like watching a gorilla get out of its cage and the zookeepers are trying

Unknown:

try it is.

Michael:

At least we get some nos in this part of the last Yeah, you know. Yeah, we do get that. And don't let he does get captured, you know, by that Connor guy. Yeah. But But let's go. And I think at that point, all she needed was the look. I guess he gave her the look. That's what must be the so she kind of knew cuz he like because that's what it seemed like. It seemed like she knew what just to look that he was not really turned. Which is what she thought all along. But everyone else was like, I don't know. See, I never thought for a second watching this movie that DOM is now bad. Right?

Anthony:

You already knew that from the desert. You never would have thought that you knew he had hit over him that obviously.

Michael:

Yeah, so it's like so. So the rest of the team act and like, Oh, well, you know, it, but they didn't know that. She showed him that shit. They had no. They had no reason. But I think ledi seeing his look at that moment was like oh, yeah, you know, he's doing this for a reason. We just don't you think it was that? You

Anthony:

don't think that was fuck me eyes?

Michael:

Well, I think at the moment I don't know she's thinking fuck me. Yeah, no. Yeah, I i've been I think I've had mixed signals from a woman before I you know, it could be fuck me eyes are saved my life. I don't know. I've seen them both.

Anthony:

Two things is that number one. I think she probably was thinking fuck me. But it was more of Oh, fuck me. Okay, but I've never gotten mixed signals. They are all signals of anger. Don't tell me they were mixed. It's one signal you

Michael:

get all the time. Oh, wow. One signal geez man here in that magazine. Very nice to Mikey day. Not being very nice to Mikey day. Now the coldest shit that happens in this movie. No. But no. No. How they do Alayna. Just

Anthony:

Yeah, yeah,

Michael:

I hated that. They can't bring that one back. They can't. They can't. They just can't. There's no fun. Like your way, Elena nevus has shown up in another part in the series now, unless they go backwards to go forward and they go to the unlock Marco story,

Anthony:

no until f 10 when they discover time travel,

Michael:

and they go back and they say, Oh, the only way to defeat this person is to bring Elena the future because she knows this person. But Dom Yeah, carry off Really? Marco never died and Marco never died. He became an evil something.

Anthony:

God is not going to carry out the the plan, whatever the heist is he has to do until he can go back and rescue off his family.

Michael:

That's right now he's got time. He's Dom the timekeeper

Anthony:

down the time cop.

Michael:

So yeah, but this was a sad part of the movie. No, we don't want to make too much lighter, but it was sad. It was sad. As messed up. Okay, are you ready for this last part? This is where we're gonna hammer this home. Are you ready to read it because this is a longer one holy, and I'm making you read it.

Anthony:

Alright, so here we go. Now, Dom infiltrates a military separatists base in Russia to use the EMP device to disable their security and to disable a nuclear submarine, which happened to be yellow, not really enabling cipher to hijack it and attempt to use its arsenal to trigger a nuclear war. There once again intercepted by the team who just keeps showing up like hemorrhoids. They are able to shut down the Soviet nuclear weapons and drive out toward the sea gate that would prevent the sub from leaving into open waters while being pursued by the separatists. Meanwhile, decherd who faked his death, teamed up with Owen, and Magdalene at magallanes behest, infiltrate ciphers plan to rescue Dom son. Once Decker reports that the child is safe, Dom turns on cipher and kills roads after saying you just left your phone off the tiger's neck before rejoining his team infuriated cipher files and fires in infrared homing missile at DOM, but he breaks away from his team and maneuvers around it causing the missile to hit the submarine instead causing explosion that destroys down his vehicle but not dumb because he is immortal. The team quickly forms vehicular blockade around shielding him from the ensuing explosion. As the submarine is destroyed. Decker reaches the front of the plane and confronts cipher who stays but jumping out of the plane with a parachute because she comes prepared with parachute on time misheard open his protege visit DOM and his team in New York City report that cipher is still at large and Athens Hobbs has to has his record cleared and is offered as DSS job back but he declines to spend more time with his daughter and coats and fucking soccer. Decker delivers down from his his son. putting his differences aside was DOM and Hobbs for the moment. Dom names his son Brian and celebrate with his friends on a rooftop because 1327 is still blown up

Michael:

the the end, but I'll tell you what, ain't that some shit? That's right there is so much so much going on there. Like when they go like Dom breaks into that fuckin facility. Yeah, the what's what's that car he's driving like he's got that EMP on there. That is

Anthony:

another offspring of some government shit, right? There

Michael:

has to be has to be, but I love Rome's car. He does bring that fucking orange asked Supercard

Anthony:

Yes, that rear wheel drive. Son of a bitch car on ice.

Michael:

Yeah, yeah. You know what the thing with Dom's car that that I realized I have on here had to be old school fuel injection or carbureted. Because if it was electric, and he shot that EMP when the fuck his own car up, you would think Yeah, he had a real superhero vibe. And like, like the Yeah, Tom had that superhero.

Anthony:

Well, yeah. Because he had to go against his family. So he has superhuman apparently.

Michael:

Yeah, I thought really the the whole submarine thing. There wasn't a lot of great stuff until after they. After it after I moved out, and they and they took it out and try to get to the wall. Once the team started racing away. I think that's when all the great action happened. I think all the shit up to that was just I, you know, was right. Okay. The I like the scene where the fucking sub launches out of the eyes. That's great. I like Tesla's moment with the tank gun. And the door gag. You know, like, I like pull him out of the thing and he's on the door. I think that's that's fuckin awesome as real fuck. Yeah. You know that that to me that those are moments I live for knees like the ones where they're pretty cool. gags it's like, Fuck yeah, you know? Fuck yeah. I love it. Yeah, I gotcha. Um, I like how we learn the Cuban connection. I like that that respect that he earned. Yes. That that guy to help him. Decker fake his death. Yeah, yeah, I like that now. Oh, and I see now a good guy. I don't know. I don't know. I mean,

Anthony:

you have no idea. I don't think a good guy. I don't think they're ever going to be good guys

Michael:

who decherd Yeah, see, you need to watch Hobbs and Shaw because they explain Yeah, I happened to him and you learn some bullshit, that clip that makes it all seem like this is for nothing. So that's all I'm saying.

Anthony:

I just mean Euler, right? They're all good and bad at the same time.

Michael:

Yeah, I think that to me the one of the best scenes on this in this thing is when the Shahs get into the plane, and decherd goes and gets the baby. Yeah, and does all that stupid shit where he's killing all those people that smile to the baby. Put the hat there it is. I mean, it shows you he's he's got a heart You know, he's not just a piece of shit. Like that's that's really what it is. He just learned that that's why Oh, and couldn't do it because I want a piece of shit. He's more of a bad guy and you learn that later on. That's what you learn. So just how it is so Dom with the after he kills the guy with the launch to save the day the cliff launch you got rock dude, his ice sliding I thought that was ridiculous. That's ridiculous. Like I said the sub launch and through the ice. But here's the thing the sub launch to the but you know, a sub the fastest they can go. And this is like in the water without breaking ice is 50 miles per hour. So I wouldn't be too scared about beating that thing. I was want like, fuckin Yeah, like,

Anthony:

when I'm watching it. I'm like, also, why can't they just drive off to the side and then go around. It's like, they just can't get off the ice. It's breaking as it's chasing them. Like, turn left. Yeah, turn right and go. Yeah, yeah, I agree. Okay. What the hell surfing on the door handle the whole door or on the door?

Michael:

Well, his his car was it went down there and he grabbed on the door. And you know, Tez pulled him out man pulled him out. And

Anthony:

if I'm like, That's what you get for taking that stupid fucking car out here.

Michael:

That's you get you get pulled on a door, Dan. But then he gets into that fucking vehicle with the rock or Hobbs and, and they take a shot from a missile. He's like, I went out of this car to like, no matter where he goes, No, that's why I said, Rome. Every one of them. He has a upped the ante for him. Let's say every one of them ups the ante for him. So it gets bigger and bigger and bigger in his eyes. Which he's that's why he's kind of saying it like we feel about it. Like, you mean I did this. And now. Now you're telling me this is what we're doing? Yeah, we're gonna do that. Yeah. Um, now, I did have a funny line here. I thought I was doing this. So Dom when he drives leads, taking that guided missile towards him. He drives towards the sub. And his muscle car. You could say that move was sublime. Did you like that? Was that a dad joke?

Anthony:

That wasn't even a dad joke. Oh, really bad. has a really bad car that was so bad. Like Tokyo Drift bad.

Michael:

Well, yeah, it is pretty bad. But this is a but the thing is, this is when they go back and they show how this all got. They go back and show us at this point. How everything happened with all that stuff. And to me that's I always liked that about these. I think this came closest to what I liked about Fast Five, for having a plot that we didn't know about that was happening behind the scenes. Yeah. And I like that. I like having things I don't know happening behind the scenes so that they're where they can make me go. Oh,

Anthony:

here's that. So now I gotta call you out. Because earlier you were like, your gripe about it was they gave us the plot right away. We already knew everything was gonna happen.

Unknown:

They now Yes. Now you're saying they did what's cool.

Michael:

But what we didn't know was that one little detail about the sun that we didn't know I told you except for one thing. And that was the wrinkle that got tossed in where they had the Shaw's and using Renault Ronaldo, whatever it is. I'm guessing he would have tried a different thing if he didn't have a kid. You know, he probably said fucker or something, you know, she's not worth all the other people. You know, I think it would have been a different movie. Without the kid being there

Anthony:

What I'm saying is Yeah, on the surface it looks like yes you know what's what's gonna happen what they have to do and they laid it out but then that's the whole thing it makes you think that but then you go back find out oh shit all this other stuff was going on? Yeah Okay

Michael:

The only thing that surprised me in this movie when I watched it was oh and Shaw that's the only one that surprised me just being his mother. Yeah him being and helping and helping and helping that surprised me that's the surprise I got it. Now after like we said like I said after the accident after the sub is blowing up. I call Dom being surrounded by the cars like him being surrounded by his power animal you know, like you have your your animal that represents you. His is the car. Yeah, the car making him truly invincible is is about is this the Mustang? The Mustang? Oh, that is a charger? I don't know.

Anthony:

I know. But I had to go with a car named after an animal. You said it was this animal. I have to go I have to pick car named after an animal.

Michael:

A jag. A Jaguar? Because it goes fast. A Pharaoh?

Anthony:

Pharaoh.

Unknown:

Yeah.

Michael:

Oh, so that bitch escapes. And so that means f nine is a reality. And obviously, we know that it's already out.

Anthony:

We've seen reality. very loose sense of the word there. Yeah, there's nothing real about Yeah, but

Michael:

f nine is awesome. What are you talking about? f you. So Roman? Yeah. So Roman tans want to get Ramsey's last name because I think she said if you can figure that out, you know, go out with him. But then he happened and ever. Hobbs record is cleared again. But he says he's retiring. Although. Yeah, he says he's retiring. But you know he can't retire because? Well, there are movies to come out.

Anthony:

Yeah, but he's not. Here. He said he's not going to be in them.

Michael:

Oh, he was in Hobbs and Shaw after this.

Anthony:

Did you read that though? He said he's not doing any more of them. He's I

Michael:

don't know that. I have to read.

Anthony:

I just read that yesterday.

Michael:

Just how long ago? You're saying yesterday?

Anthony:

Yes. That rock said he was saying yesterday and he won't be in the other ones. Look it up.

Michael:

I am looking it up. I don't believe you.

Anthony:

Okay, I made that up for no reason.

Michael:

Says he won't return for the final Fast and Furious films

Anthony:

that like I just said,

Michael:

but does that but what if there's a Hobbs and Shaw?

Anthony:

Okay, but I'm talking about the Fast and Furious. And what I said was he's not

Michael:

I don't know if

Anthony:

he'll be in Hobbs and Shafi wants because he doesn't have to work with Vin Diesel.

Michael:

Okay, um, so I'm looking here I'm looking to see if he if he's if it says anything about Hobbs and Shaw it doesn't it's just talking about the straight franchise so I don't know he probably could still be in a Hobbs and Shaw. He could but anyways, I got some things I can talk about that in our in our fact so Okay, um, but he's cleared again, Dom holding a kid doesn't look right to me. And how does it feel about that? Since it's not hers? That's and yeah, of course, the named kid Brian. She.

Anthony:

He thought she was dead and she kind of was because she had amnesia. So her life was non existent.

Michael:

Dead kids, you can't remember the previous

Anthony:

saying, I can't remember me. Fuck you. Archie was dead. You know? See, I think when he sledge hammered her tombstone that's what really jogged your memory back. That's what that in Part Seven. Yeah, that's where she should have got her memory back. That loud crash of the tombstone braking. totally kidding. That scene was still moment.

Michael:

The moment she takes a drink of a Corona so that because the sound of the corona opening and then the other sense of the taste and smell and all that, that should have done it,

Anthony:

I'm going to tell you right now, that is how they actually need to end this franchise. The last scene when he actually does retire, it's just going to be a back shot of him and lady sitting on beach chairs in front of the ocean chairs, tapping Corona bottles together. Just like in the camera.

Michael:

I thought you were gonna go another now just like in the cloud. We're gonna go another direction that where where they have a bucket of beers and everybody grabs one, and they all take a drink. And Tom says I just Jonestown you guys. poisoning.

Anthony:

Wow. Yeah, that's where

Michael:

we're all we're all done. We're all done. Yeah, that's right thought but hey, yeah, totally different direction. Are you ready for for the biggest bang?

Anthony:

biggest bang? I've

Michael:

got a big banger.

Anthony:

I got a big banger.

Michael:

Okay, I got it.

Unknown:

Oh, that hurt. Ouch. All right. All right. Go I bang

Anthony:

my big banger that I really enjoyed was Miley Cyrus. The Wrecking Ball wrecking ball. told you I was gonna hold my comments. I like that. That was good. It was over the top but not over the top and a completely unbelievable way. So I like those scenes where it's crazy, but that's something that could have happened. Like believable, crazy believable.

Michael:

Yes. like jumping from building to building. Yeah, I got it.

Anthony:

Shut up.

Michael:

Alright, so let me hit mine. Boom. So, so I, I Well, I know it can't go that fast. The sub. I like the launch of the sub out of the ice. It is a great scene and it's on the cover of the movie for a reason. You know, it just looks great. It has a great look to it. And you can't go wrong anytime you see something like that happening. So I'm down with that. I'm down with that. So are we going six pack? I'm ready. Six Pack. All right. I'm gonna mommy go first. I'll do that well, since you went first. So my first one is Dom being held by wires like a wild beast. Trying to get away the car wire those wires as tension wires on DOM. That's one of my favorite scenes. Because he's like a caged beast and him and his 3000 horsepower car probably snapped them all and make it all happen. So there you go. Okay. We What do you think of that? And think that's whatever.

Anthony:

That's what you like. That's fine.

Michael:

You have no comments. Okay. Whatever.

Anthony:

No, it's fine. It was fine.

Michael:

Okay. Are you? Are you ready for your first one?

Anthony:

I'm ready. Jason, stay them. Saving Dom son. That whole scene was awesome. Keeps checking on the baby, talking to the baby. Where's that smile? There it is. And then going about killing everybody. That was awesome. You took mine? Well, I'm sorry, mine.

Unknown:

Here's the thing. That's mine.

Anthony:

We talked before about I'm sick of Rome's comic relief, because most times it's not that funny. That was some great comic relief in that movie.

Michael:

Yeah. Yeah. Right. There was. That was great. That was excellent. All right, I'll pick something different. That was my second one. So I'll pick something different. I will. Alright, I'm gonna go with busters, turbo can. And the rate basically, that whole race and the flaming car, and I was all inspired by you know, Brian's way of making a car go faster. I thought that was a I thought that was a fun scene to it. Before we knew what this movie was about. It was kind of light hearted and you didn't know where you're going. And it was kind of cool.

Anthony:

Yeah. You know, what, if that's what one can could do? match if they put a six pack in. Whoa. All right.

Michael:

I see what you did there. And this is what it sounded like. Dad jokes. Are you ready for I'm ready. Are you ready for your next one?

Anthony:

The soccer chant.

Unknown:

Oh,

Michael:

the mayority

Anthony:

that and then the faces on the opposing team watching it. That was awesome.

Michael:

Hey. Well in half that you you got to watch Hobbs and Shaw. So yeah, that is I love that. That was great. That you got to love that. I love that. That is you know if you I wish that's something we would have done back in the day cuz that probably is intimidating to see. Oh, yeah. Well, that two together chatting stuff at you probably would be

Anthony:

especially with a coach that size standing there with him.

Michael:

Yeah, yeah. Um, I'm gonna go with my last one. Are you ready? Ready? I'm gonna go with the zombie cars. Well, I think it's unrealistic. I think it's a really fun shot. To see them flying out of car parks in downtown. Yeah, and shit. I think it's a really cool looking scene. Even if it's unrealistic. It was kind of like the the vault being dragon real.

Anthony:

Don't go back to that. Don't go back to that.

Michael:

I'm just saying you cool. Looking scenes, but the bodies are real though. The bodies are real. There are dead bodies everywhere. We just don't see those scenes. Totally. We just don't see the bodies, man. Like you're telling me. There should be someone dedicated that

Anthony:

Yeah, tell me in New York City you have all those ghost cars driving around crashing into each other. Nobody's gonna get hurt or killed whatever.

Michael:

Oh, yeah. Or be in them. Like when they fly out of those car parks. There's there's probably 1000 people dead from that stunt at least at least at least. So are you ready for the generics?

Anthony:

No, I got one more six pack. You went first. Remember?

Michael:

Oh, let me hit it. Did I?

Anthony:

Yeah. You dumped Oh, yeah,

Michael:

I did. Are you ready? Okay, let me hit it. Let me

Anthony:

take a concerts. Taylor Swift. You gotta be shitting me Get it? Oh.

Michael:

taytay Ah, I love it. I love it. Yeah. All about that.

Anthony:

All mine were funny moments. Because this had some great funny moments.

Michael:

It did. It did. Obviously to me the I think you and I if we were to pick, the best scene in the movie would be shot in the baby based on our out when it comes to the funny, I would say. Yeah. The most poignant scene in the movie is probably Elena dying. Yes. I'm gonna hit the generic. Are you ready for it?

Anthony:

I'm ready. All right, my going first.

Unknown:

Yeah. Okay.

Anthony:

My generic moment is Charlie's Theron and dreads. It did not work.

Unknown:

Ah,

Michael:

see, to me the Buddha's bizarreness of that. made it work for me. Like was totally not who she is.

Anthony:

I'm sorry. dye your hair green or something neon. But the dreads did not work. For me. I wonder

Michael:

if it was her idea, though.

Anthony:

I don't know.

Michael:

Because if it's her I did that. I don't think she knows her own self image. Probably better than you shouldn't own

Anthony:

that idea that it did not work. Just saying.

Michael:

Okay, okay. I'm with you there. I'm gonna go with mine. Alright, now my generic moment isn't generic because of how bad it is. As much as how sad it is. Elena dying for me was a generic moment because we lost a character that I think could have been good for the series. Like I think she was a good actress. I'd rather had her than Michelle Rodriguez in there. Elena was tacky, or whatever her name is. She's awesome. I think she's a better actress. Yeah, she is. So

Anthony:

our actress so and also we have killed off two of the best looking females in the entire series with her and Galaga Oh,

Michael:

yeah. True. Delgado. I mean, there's another she could always come back. Remember, she just flew off the thing so we don't really know. That could be you know how it is in this movie, man. She can be back. Yeah, know how it is. Okay, so, are you ready for facts, man?

Anthony:

Give me some facts. I got a long one. Next, Ramsey's got a dy.

Michael:

dx is pretty hot. They're killing all the pretty girls Ramsey's next. Ramsey's next and me is not even in there anymore. Hardly. So, yeah, I mean, she was in this last one, but he has retired. Who knows? Gone? Yeah, I wonder. Yeah, well, she was but she was in F nine. Yeah, so isn't f nine. Well, cuz Brian had a baby thoroughly. But she was. Yeah, that's just the babies that all the babies which are three to actually probably name babies by now. Alright, so let's get this on the road. So, for the facts, I got this one. This is going to be the the saga of Dwayne Johnson and Vin Diesel. So I'll go over that stuff. So before filming ended. of this movie, Dwayne Johnson posted an infamous message on Instagram confirming that the production had endured its share of onset frictions. This is my final week of shooting Fast and Furious eight. There's no other franchise that gets my blood boiling more than this one and incredible hard working crew. Universal has been great partners as well. My female co stars are always amazing, and I love them. My male co stars however, are a different story. Some conduct themselves as stand up men and true professionals while others don't. The ones that don't are too chickenshit to do anything about it. Anyway, candy asses when you watch this movie next April and it seems like I'm not acting in some of the scenes and my blood is legit boiling. You're right. Bottom line is it'll play great for the movie and fits this Hobbs character that's embedded in my DNA extremely well. The producers enemy is happy about this part. final week on fast eight, and I'll finish strong. Iceman Cometh. f8 zero tolerance for candy asses. That's what he said on his thing. Yep, that's, that's that's your dad's Yeah, the post came after costar, an executive producer Vin Diesel reportedly canceled some of Johnson's plan seems at the last minute. at the last minute on several occasions. Diesel had also reportedly refused to show up on set as he was scheduled, leaving hundreds of cast crew and extras waiting on set for him. for more than six hours diesel confronted Johnson in a secret meeting one day after Dwayne's message was posted online. Johnson later told The Hollywood Reporter that he hit the meeting cleared up a few things he confirmed that he and diesel did not shoot scenes together because of a fundamental difference in philosophies on how we approach filmmaking and collaborating, but that he was grateful for the clarity. Although he did not provide details It was later revealed that the announcement of Johnson spin off movie Fast and Furious presents Hobbs and Shaw was one of the main reasons for diesel's behavior as it would split up the franchise and delay f nine the fast saga. Johnson stated that he would probably pass on fast nine but wish diesel well all the best and all the best and the I harbor no ill the ill will there just because of the clarity we have actually, you can erase that last part about no ill will. We'll just keep it with the clarity. That's what he says. So he obviously does not like Vin Diesel and has nothing to do with him. So there you go. So if you al like him and then this is the first major Hollywood blockbuster filmed in Cuba since the 1950s. The Fast toy shop, a vehicle Griot garage created for the production and featured in a scene of the fate and furious contained well over $17 million worth of vehicles. That's how much was in that room. It's why the fade it features a rip saw luxury tank courtesy of the US Department of Defense. That was an actual real vehicle. It has the fate of furious trailer debut ranks as the biggest ever with more than 139 million online views in 24 hours. So that's pretty big. This is the first movie in the franchise to include two Oscar winners. There are two Oscar winners in this movie. Do you know who they are? Ah.

Anthony:

I think now,

Michael:

it's hard. There's only Charlie's Terran Oh, yes. Or what's the monster? Something like? Helen Mirren?

Anthony:

Yes, yes. Da,

Michael:

okay. Okay, now here's a funny fact for you. The character played by Scott Eastwood is never named. Eastwood's father Clint Eastwood is famous for playing the man with no name. The room there you go. Lucas black was set to reprise his character from the Fast and the Furious tokyo drift. But unfortunately, his schedule for his TV series NCIS New Orleans prevented him from doing this. So you know that he comes back? That got canceled. It got canceled the that's why he has free schedule. I guess that Luke Hobbs performs the haka, a traditional Midori, Midori chant which is similar, with the dancing performance performed by Maui and molana love that was voiced by Johnson. The haka has has its roots throughout Polynesian culture all the way to Hawaii. The one Hobbs dances with his girls soccer team is a Midori and there are variants throughout the islands in the Pacific. So there's that. In one argument between Hobbs and Shaw, Dwayne Johnson decided to ad lib and come up with a line about knocking shark's teeth so far down his throat it's gonna have to need to stick a toothbrush up

Anthony:

is asked just to brush

Michael:

that's the breath. Jason stay them was so amused by the ad lib that he broke character and started laughing and that's the tape that was used in the film. That's awesome. There you go. Sir. That is so let's get straight to his mother burger.

Anthony:

Are you ready to wait that says that like So originally? That wasn't supposed to be the okay. We kind of get each other moment

Michael:

he may Yeah, he made that line up on the spot

Anthony:

that's what I'm saying. So there wasn't supposed to be any like smiles between them or anything or was it going to be at a different Oh,

Michael:

not at all it's supposed to be a serious it's supposed to be a serious serious I'm gonna kill you. I'm gonna kill you serious on serious type of thing.

Anthony:

That's funny because I love that instead.

Michael:

I know because the rock is the shit and Vin Diesel probably blue is this movie will not do as much if the F 10 will probably be a go start going downhill. Yeah. I mean, money wise I'm talking about money is obviously still big, big shit. Still maybe they can do six 700 million during a pandemic is doing pretty good. Are you ready to rate this motherfucker right?

Anthony:

yes all right. Yes yes okay so with this movie Part Seven fell apart for me losses transmission a couple blocks back it was for different reasons just kind of disjointed and didn't work all together this one fucking worked this had even though it did have the ridiculous bullshit stones that you know you're gonna have in them had some good stuff in there whether or not the rocks not acting in some of the parts because he's pissed off. I don't know. I'm gonna tell you what, this one I enjoyed quite a bit. And I think a big part of it was the added comedy in it here and they're really rounded out for me. And I hate that I without having Paul Walker in it. That you know, I wish seven had been better. But this movie overall like this was a good watch. I actually enjoyed this one. So this one I give 17 cans.

Michael:

Wow. For you, that's praise.

Anthony:

I know. I told her I was good. Six was good. And part of it part of the reason I give this as high as I do is because of how down I was on seven. I you know to enjoy this one as much as I did. I'm like, Well shit, but I think Yeah, about where it's gonna peak though. Like you said,

Michael:

I'm sorry, someone piston your Wheaties. I thought the peak last the last movie. Anyways. So for me at this point, there is a formula for these movies. It's not a bad one. I enjoy it. They're entertaining all the way through. And it just feels comfortable. It's like a cardigan, you know, like, little Tay would sing me a song. And I'd wear that nice cardigan and be all comfortable and warm.

Anthony:

It's like your face.

Michael:

It has lots of action. Yeah, yeah. Favorite. The one I do you reuse your favorite condom? Because it was your favorite when you use it? Or do you get a new one? Good question. Well, anyways, lots of really my mom, you rarely we're

Anthony:

No, I'm not making it better.

Michael:

Whatever, this movie has lots of action and a good plot, if not predictable. I don't think it is the best in the series, in my opinion. So I am not as high on it as Anthony I give it 16.5 cans.

Anthony:

Okay, it's still with us a rating 16.75 16.75.

Michael:

So that's not bad. You know, we've got basically two more of these to do. And when we do, just going to say that we're going to do what they call is a wrap up show where we'll let you know, in order what we think the best are based on our composite scores. We're also going to give you guys some we're gonna do some like, I don't know, awards, kind of like you know, the best this the best that and we'll make some things happen. And I think it'll be very entertaining. To go back and look at that and see what we thought was the best and the worst. I mean, I don't know if it gets worse than Michelle Rodriguez is acting in the first movie. But then Ronda Rousey said, Hold my beer. Yeah. I don't know. I think I smell skanks. Oh, gosh, anyways, oh, yeah, we're gonna do some fun things. So

Anthony:

yeah, Ronda Rousey said hold my beer. But then Tokyo Drift said I'm already holding the keg.

Unknown:

So

Michael:

don't forget your your knee. The one who fucked up the whole franchise. Don't forget me. Yeah. Um, hey, Tokyo Drift is so relevant to every movie in this by the way one day.

Anthony:

I know. One thing I think also, which I forgot to mention Part Part Two with my writing that I think we do need to make special mention. Charlene their own was an awesome asshole. villain in this to have

Michael:

really bad

Anthony:

and also to have a female villain. It's not the most common thing in action movies either.

Michael:

So that was awesome. I should have made her a six pack.

Anthony:

She did it.

Michael:

I should have made her a six pack

Anthony:

so well. She was great in that her and Helen Mirren are two of my favorite characters. And that

Michael:

Helen Mirren asked to be in this franchise but but her when she when they kill Elena, how cold she is about it. Yeah, like, just yeah, She's good. She's just good. So, um, do you have things you want to tell the people?

Anthony:
