My husband and I have begun our quest to watch all of the Fast and Furious movies in reverse order. After watching Fast 10 in theaters (and having many questions) we watched the 9th movie in hopes to gain some context. Now for those of you who have seen all of the Fast and Furious movies I can feel you laughing at me. And you would be correct to do so. So much happens in these movies and yet nothing happens in these movies so no context was gained. No questions were answered but so so many arose.
Now it has been a while since I have watched any of these movies willingly and honestly I stopped with 5 because that’s really when they stopped being good. I saw 6 in theaters and firmly remember hating it. That said as I journey back through, I’m glad I stopped when I did.
Like I said going back through time with these movies has raised more questions then answers, some of those questions include;
Who is little B’s mom?
When did Dom have time to fuck somebody else?
When the Fuck did Giselle “die”?
When did Han “die”?
Why did it take 9 movies to get to Jacob existing and any backstory for Dom?
When did we abandon the laws of physics?
Perhaps I will get some answers in Fast 8 and 7…probably not but one could hope. I am also trying to pinpoint the exact moment these movies went from fun action adventures, to absolutely batshit crazy. We will be doing the next one this weekend so stay tuned I guess…
