Fine with me. Rock and Statham were far and away the best parts of F8. Throw Lin or Shane Black on top, and baby you've got a stew going

Awesome. Now i can skip this film like its tokyo drift and wait until the family comes back in 2019

Aside from its horrible lead character, Tokyo Drift is one of the best in the series. It at least integrates drag racing and drifting competitions into the story.

Bring back Han and Giselle, man. Seriously what the fuck are you doing with the series

Dunno how they can revive them. Maybe just create a spin-off focusing on Han's life. I'd watch it for sure.

You barely see Giselle die, they could def write something around it. With Han, I'm going to imagine the car morphed with him or something to sustain his life, maybe someone kept him in secret somewhere as he was recovering.

This is nothing for this franchise.

Didn't Statham's character kill a bunch of innocent people in the series?

Yes. And then F8 tried to walk that back with "He was a good soldier once upon a time..." Didn't land for me at all. Him and Hobbs had the best fight scene in the movie, but dude killed Han and terrorized them all throughout the last movie

They haven't killed the main bad guy since...F5? Maybe even 4. Like they straight up murder the main henchman to give the audience the illusion of payoff, but the main bad guy sticks around and gets redeemed. They on some Dragon Ball shit.

I think tyrese ain't faking being mad
Hmm, this actually is good context. If this is true, and a bulk of the main cast all turned down spin-offs of their own, in good faith for the rest of their main cast, then yea, this is pretty fucked up.

But ya, this is Hollywood, and if it's not in contract, it's gonna fall apart.

Han slipped out of the car into a manhole right before it blew up

I thought the last Fast and Furious movie had too much Vin Diesel. I'm okay with this :)

This is going to underperform domestically, especially since they waited a few years too many. Should do well overseas at least.

Honestly? Most FF films have too much Vin Diesel.

Yeah I could really do without his weird ass character these days. Dude just gives out a few inspirational quotes about family, gets mad, and looks serious. He doesn't feel like a real person and has no chemistry with the cast.

As I said in the other thread, I had a cool idea on how to bring back Han.

Shaw says he needs Hobbs' help to rescue someone that he once wronged during his criminal days and has now been captured by some enemy gang he crossed. They do a bunch of action shit and then, in the third act, they find the captive...Han.

Shaw explains that when he blew up Han's car, he took him hostage and intended to use him to threaten the family, but this gang he crossed (maybe they're connected to Cipher) abducted Han before he could do so and now he wants to get him back so he can make good with Dom and co.

The movie ends with them rescuing Han and sets up for F&F9.

Groot is the only character these days that he plays who isn't just him acting out fanfiction of himself. Riddick, Triple X, and yes I even saw The Last Witch Hunter, they're all the same dude.

Then why he reboot XXX?

That's just the step family. He only sees them in January lol.

That movie was shit but I liked Donnie Yen in it. Or them trying to make Nina Dobrev some type of nerd like you wouldn't get 3rd degree burns just touching her

Letty was dead too.

Was that official? Like one director never meant to have her come back and then another one changed their minds? I thought it was part of the plot. Guess they "pulled it off".

Blowing in a car and falling off a plane I think are harder to retcon.

There's no way that anyone seriously offered Tyrese and Ludacris a spin-off film since Fast 5 blew the series up worldwide.

Maybe it got mentioned somewhere in passing with the same probability of actually happening that the Ghostbusters cinematic universe had.

This series is dumber than you think it is

Sure but how many times could you pull the *GASP* "SHE/HE LIVES!!" with the series?

Who doesn't realize that Fast movies are just batshit insane now? While it is, having these "twists" were characters somehow aren't dead do not sound that good either. (Statham's brother being alive on Fast 7? was also lame as I figured he died. Sure he wasn't around much but I felt he didnt need to be around. They could have introduced Statham being at the dude's funeral or something.

As many times as they have likeable family members worth bringing back.

I think I'd rather watch a spinoff starring those two Spanish-speaking guys from Fast Five then a Luda/Tyrese solo adventure.

The old guard really needs to realize that the franchise has just outgrown them. I'm here for the family but I simply tolerate the creepy uncles who hit on girls and drink Corona.

While I guess bringing those characters back would be twists, I'm just asking for them back because they added a lot to the movies. I just want Han and Giselle back on the team, chilling out with everyone else and cracking jokes and looking cool. I want to look forward to Han eating a bag of potato chips again.

Having them back seems like a huge improvement to the dynamic of the team to me. We already know they work well. Scott Eastwood in 8 sucked ass.

What happened to them? They were hilarious
