Hobbs & Shaw was dumb, but it had a fun surprise role:

Headline: were getting a sequel! Article: no one is working on a sequel. Don't ever change, fark.

Apparently, Subby forgot that actors, directors, producers and movie studios like money.

Do we need another one of those?

Why is this even news?  (i know, fark.com, etc)

meh, if people want to see the movies and they make money, who cares.
I think I stopped at F&F 3..  I did want to see the Hobbs one, looked fun, but havent gotten around to it yet.

Why not? It was a loud dumb fun movie. Everyone in it &/or watching it seemed to be enjoying themselves.

This ^, you know exactly what you are going to get. The franchise also makes bucket loads of cash so you know they are not going to stop any time soon. Even if we are a world away from tricked out Civics and a lorry full of TV's and VCR's.

You know what? F*ck it, but just get rid of Kevin Hart, I know they think his cameos are HILARIOUS! but they really just annoy.

You stopped right before they started getting fun! (okay, maybe still skip 4... 5 is where they become ludicrous [pun intended] )

Bslim: Do we need another one of those?


As much as we need another MCU movie or Star Wars/Trek, etc. film.

Like others have said these are just dumb, loud, funny, exciting films.  In the first film the bad guy is stealing DVD players.  In the latest one they using driving (?) to prevent a sub from launching an attack (!).

Same here.  I wasn't too crazy about the franchise but I did catch Hobbes and Shaw.

Exactly what it says on the tin.  Loud, fun, dumb action movie. Great to turn your brain off and watch dudes punch each other, wild stunts and explosions.

Great!  The 1st one was fantastically entertaining.

What a "Fast and Furious" spinoff might look like.

Fast and Furious is the only series that consistently delivers exactly what it says it's going to do.  Stupid, brainless, action, car scenes, and dialogue about family.

IIRC that movie was directed by Justin Lin, who did a bunch of the F/F movies.  His Star Trek movie made less than his F/F movies.

Statham is going to be 60 by the time they get around to production.

I think Fast 5 is the peak.  It's insanely stupid, but insanely fun.  The problem with the subsequent films is that, while still fun, they feel the need to keep one upping the previous one.  So we're getting to a point of diminishing returns.

More importantly, it's a well made loud dumb action movie.

I am not one to forgive poor writing, bad pacing, bad acting, annoying camerawork. A movie must be well made regardless of genre. I hate the argument "just unplug your brain" to cover for filmmakers' inadequacy. I haven't seen a Michael Bay move since The Rock that wasn't crap. (I haven't seen them all, so YMMV)

Hobbes & Shaw was well made and is delightful. Bring on the sequel.

"I'm what you call a Champaign problem". Sweet Jesus, really?

We watched this movie on a fastboat from Denpasar, Bali to Gili Trawangan Island with the family, all subtitled, no sound, and now this terrible movie is an annual family watching event during our celebration of Festivus.

Convenient how you stopped watching right before Gisele died.

Hmm.
