13:32 Nope, not this song, not in this actual context.
16:13 Ooh a posh DeLorean!
23:11 Not helping my mistrust of lifts.
32:12 It’s all gone a bit Indiana Jones.
40:48 Impossible that not a single life was lost in that attack.
42:03 Did he just have this exposition presentation ready to go on the off chance someone walked in?
42:37 “It’s like a cult, with cars.”
51:07 It’s nice when they remember that Big Brian is supposed to still exist.
1:03:06 Ooh, old school racing!
1:08:08 Oh sure, now we’re in Star Wars where robots just patch you right up.
1:28:08 So much wrong with this plane boat unloading in mid-flight situation.
1:30:18 Yay Statham. We legit cheered.

1:58:59 Oh good, two helicopter crashes for the price of one. ARGH.
2:06:34 Someone had to 3D design Vin’s biceps and I’m just volunteering for that.


So annoyed at this film.

I thought it was doing okay - you know, the regular kind of stupid that you expect from this franchise. It was laughable but fully entertaining and bizarre in all the right ways. I LOVED how much fun Jason Mamoa was having in this role, he was head and shoulders above everyone else, the best thing in it.

Plenty of questions, like what was the powder Roman was throwing, how is it possible no one died from the bomb, how did the dam not smash apart, how did Dom get his car to Rio, how did the agency guy have the film footage of the submarine chase, what happened to Scott Eastwood once he jumped from the exploding truck, and on and on and on…

But it was the end that really ruined the whole thing. It wasn’t an end, it was a cliffhanger question mark all by itself, and WTF was Gal Gadot doing popping out of a submarine? We watched her die, we mourned her along with Han and oop, no, turns out she was scraped up off the runway at some point and is now going to save the day. WHAT?

It’s absolutely infuriating… and yet, I’m confident we will be ready to watch Fast 11 when it rolls around. It really is a cult with cars.
