Private entities should not be allowed to commandeer public places for any reason.

You have an interesting position there. I have, at times, been pissed off by private entities commandeering public places as well. Usually the city or county gets paid.
On another note, how can they be making a seventh installment of that series? Who pays to watch that crap?

It is somewhat amazing that the Fast & Furious series has had as many movies as something like Star Wars or Star Trek.

The same people that buy Tapout shirts, Bud Light, and Nickelback albums.

I'll be plenty happy if they go right into Bond series territory as far as the number count goes, so long as the quality keeps up or improves.

That said, the end for Toretto and Friends has to be coming soon.  I never understood why more series didn't try to continue on with an all-new lineup of characters*.  Like 24, for instance - as cool as Jack Bauer was, I found myself wondering towards the end why they didn't just focus on a completely different situation with a completely different protagonist.  Or Call of Duty - seems like at some point, they could have gotten off of the military kick and focused on police units or something.

/*excepting obvious reasons like audience backlash with unfamiliar elements.

Tony Jaa is apparently making his American movie debut in this film which is the only reason I'd want to see it, but I'm worried I won't be able to follow the plot without seeing the previous six.

As long as they don't close down 24 and I can still get to/from work, who cares?

Honestly, 4-6 are just about a self-contained story, so you could start there and not miss a whole bunch.  If you absolutely need the complete picture, then check out 1 and 3, as well.  Just Wikipedia 2 - that's not worth your time.

I saw FF6 this summer. They probably dropped a few inside jokes but I didn't have any trouble following it.

Basically it's just about a bunch of street racers who are also secret agents and experts in every martial art there is and engineering geniuses and top-notch hikers and firearms experts and pilots.

kids - farking teenagers eat that shiat up.

I can't believe I watched the first 2...They're up to 7 now?

FFS, I remember when Jaws sequels became a running joke and how many of those were there?   3?  maybe 4?   I looked it up.  The answer is 4.  There were 4 Jaws movies and nobody remembers the last one and everyone laughs when you mention the 3rd one.

I remember when car chases used to mean something.

There are those that have seen 5 and 6 and can honestly say that outside of some rare cheesy 1 liners, these movies are very fun action movies that are worth the bang for the buck.

And then there are the peer pressure driven clowns that assume they suck because it's cool to hate on shiat you don't want to watch on your ipad while drinking your soy Latte.

When I posted about it a couple months ago I said there wasn't enough helium in the universe to suspend disbelief, but it was still fun. The best part was the action sequence at the end, which included an airport runway that had to be 50 miles long.

Yeah the runway was long, but it was still fun...and I'll be damned if that tank chase was damn good stunt work.

What will they be doing this time? Driving a winding 20-mile road up pikes peak at 180 mph for 2 1/2 hours?

I honestly got bored part way through the fifth one.  But, then again, I'm not big on car movies or completely mindless action movies most of the time.  Hey, if enough people enjoy the movies then good for them, I'm just not one of them.

/friend is really into them though
//the way he goes off on them it's like they're his bible
/have resisted the urge to kill friend so far

I shouldn't have called them crap - I should have called them action driving movies staring Vin Diesel and let people draw their own conclusions.

No one has mentioned it, but 8 has been green-lit already.

/enjoys the hell out of these movies
