I realized I still haven't posted movie reviews from this weekend. Of course now that I think about it, it's not a movie I've been dying to write about.
Fast & Furious
First off let's talk about the title. If you didn't know any better how would you know that The Fast and the Furious is the first movie and Fast & Furious is the fourth. I guess maybe that's the point? I'm not really sure.
First I have to say this was not my movie pick. But since we are good at alternating picks and the boy has seen his fair share of girl-y movies for me I guess I can't complain.
Part of the reason I wasn't dying to see this is due to the fact that I've never seen any of the fast & furious movies. So the fact that Paul Walker and the sister were in a fake relationship in the first movie. Well, I only knew that from the preview, and sure didn't know it wasn't a real relationship. They didn't do a very good job explaining the back story, probably because they assumed anyone who was watching the movie already knew the back story. I tried to ask questions from the boy during the show, but as you might imagine that didn't go over very well.
Not being a car person, I can't say I really cared what the cars looked like. The racing scenes were pretty good, although I liked the racing scenes in Death Race a lot better. Overall, I'd say see The Fast and the Furious first. But if you're like me and you are pretty much forced to go, well, there are a lot of worse movies you could be seeing.
P.S. I'm thinking either Scott of Lil will be going home on American Idol tonight. I guess we'll see what happens soon!
