Here's how I look at it:

They are movies. About cars. Many, many cool cars. I'll even make allowances for the ricers. We do not have enough movies about cars. We can never have enough movies about cars. These movies are not meant to be taken intellectually. In fact, most movies are not meant to be taken intellectually. Those who have to pundit about how stupid movies are, usually are not as intelligent as they'd like to believe themselves to be.

As such, I say bring on Fast and Furious 6 through 209. I want NOS on jet cars, spaceships and quantum warp probes.

/I also want a quality remake of "Vanishing Point"

I'd rather see Hollywood fixated on muscle-car movies than another string of torture-porn flicks.

MyKingdomForYourHorse: The studio knows these movies are garbage, but people still watch em anyway. They captured a demographic with the first one and just keep putting film after film out knowing those then 18 year olds now, now thirty year olds, will keep going back time and time again.
At first to live vicariously and emulate the films, now to try and relive some sad sense of youth.

They are like horror movies. The plot is borderline irrelevant; it just needs some action, some car chase scenes, some explosions, and someone yelling "NOS!!!!" every once in a while.
They will keep churning these out until there is no money to be made. Fast and furious (the 2010 one) made $350 million on an $85 million budget, Fast 5 made $650 million on a $125 million budget. Hollywood doesn't care about quality/awards...they care about money. So if they create another $150 million movie and earn another $500 million...there is gonna be fast 8, fast 9, and fast 15...
