It started as a mediocre response to the controversy and excitement over illegal street racing and turned into Mission Impossible with cars.

There's nothing that isn't awesome about that.

Went from tits, ass and cars to tits, ass, cars and superpowers.

You have got my attention gentlemen, what it's the most awesome/ridiculous modern F&F movie?

They can't go into space quite yet.

First they have to race the molemen people who hate the idea of Familia and think Corona tastes like piss water.

Then they have to team up with black Jesus when the devil is organizing a race to destroy the world and God agrees to it.

Then comes the space movie. Where a race of aliens come to steal all of the Corona.

Not on my neighborhood. Not with my Familia
I think you would do the space movie before you get started with the biblical epic.

Start with 4

Edit: 3 is chronologically seperate and 4 helps bridge the gap between the old and the new. 4,5 and 6 also somewhat function as a trillogy.

5 is where everything starts to come together as its basically the Fastvengers bringing together a whole bunch of supporting characters you have previously liked together into one superteam. Its also The Rocks first fast film.

Edit cool stunt spoilers

Fast 4
The Street race through LA and run drugs through some mining tunnels into mexico.

Fast 5
They drive Supercars off of a moving train and jump 1 off a cliff (and survive), then they tear up Rio by dragging a giant bank vault througg the city behind 2 Muscle Cars

Fast 6.
They crash a jumbo jet as its taking off, Vin Diesel jumps across a huge gap on a highway to catch someone midair and prevent them falling to their deaths

Fast 7
They Parachute a convoy of cars onto a mountain road at full speed, recreate Uncharted 2's opening but on a buss and jump a supercar between 3 skyscrapers at about 50 stories up, then they outrun a helicopter in LA as it shoots up the town

Fast 8 from the trailer
The Vilans use tech to create a Zombie hoard of computer controlled driverless cars, They outrun a submarine on an Ice Shelf. The Rock redirects a torpedo with his hands while still attatched to a moving veichle. Dom recreates Keanu's classic shoot gun into the sky scene from point break.

After space they can then do an interdimensional Race War that was set up because Dom welcomes God into the family and God wants to see Dom race the best drivers from the multi-verse because he's bored. The rub though is that the losers universe will be erased and Dom's universe is actually one of the worst universes in a driving power level scale. We will get to see aliens and alternate universe chargers and mustangs. It'll be the best thing ever especially when they meet up with Universe 8 Han and he joins their team. Also the Tokyo Drift 48 year old teenager becomes relevant again.

This is literally almost Fast Nein.

First they should go to Dubai and jump a car from one fucking skyscraper to another fucking skyscraper, and then jump from the second fucking skyscraper to a third fucking skyscraper!

I'm not high, I'm just a fucking genius!

What if they made a Fast Furious where Dom got cancer, and they had to shrink their cars down like Innerspace and drive them inside Dom to the cancer which they beat up.

Attach borrowing screws to the front and it'll become Fast and Furious Tokyo Dig Dug.

Disney will buy Universal for F&F and Jurassic Park and we'll get the Star Wars X Fast & Furious crossover trilogy we'll all have been waiting for.

No, that will jump the shark.

The movie jumped the shark after the fourth one when Dominic became Batman and could smell nitrometh and perfectly recreate the crash that supposedly killed Letty. Only reason I watched the previous one was out of respect for Walker who I liked as an actor. Otherwise Statham literally had become the Terminator. Ludacris who was a garage owner in Miami becomes some tech genius who can hack drones etc. Ridiculous.

I gotta admit, it's an interesting evolution for a franchise. Car flick, car stunt flick, batshit crazy over-the-top ridiculously impossible car stunt flick. There are no limits for the future.

Imbued with the Speed Force, Dom drives back in time to save Han, but ends up changing the future for the worse.

The Fast and the Furious: Flashpoint


I keep thinking about time travel too, but all I get is an image of them in their cars, which are strapped onto the backs of dinosaurs.

Oh god yes. They need to do an orbital reentry in a car. I don't want them to go to the moon or the space station; they just need to do an orbital reentry.

I'm planning to rewatch 1-7 before the 8th releases in the US on the 14th.

Do I make an OT and challenge GAF to do the same?

How many times do they gotta say it? "I had a life before I met you." Ludacris used to be Batman, but we were only introduced to him in his retirement phase in Miami.

I actually did that for the past seven weeks. Giant Bomb put up some commentary tracks; two guys of the New York crew had never watched the movies. They loved it.

They should make a Fast Furious where they're all older now with kids, so, the family's gotta buy gifts for Christmas and they're trying to find parking spots in the world's biggest parking garage complex, during the busiest shopping day of the holiday season.

But, little do they know that DARPA finds out about their plans and decides to test their newest prototype self-driving car against them in this perfect trial environment. The parking mega-garage is put on lockdown with the family inside; one-by-one, they keep roaming but that parking spot is occupied by this same self-driving machine god every time. Ruthless epitome of last-minute shopping spreeficiency, pure electric mall stealth, you think that spot's empty but no the automated future is here to take away their drift forever. Over the course of 2-and-a-half furious hours, they see with their own eyes, their kids will never know what it's like to drift. How can you steer when you are not in control?

One-by-one they run out of gas inside this parking lot, one-by-one they gotta get out of their supercar fossils and face this newborn demon on the wheels God gave them (feet), they thought they could get there faster on pistons but no, that's when they realize they left Dom at home. They Skype him but the video-feed isn't working?

DARPA uploaded Dom into their self-driving network. On the mall roof he rolls up to the family with the window down and they see Dom's not there. The car is empty, except it's Dom. Zoom in on the front wheel and the ground starts quaking, gravel shaking, that rim keeps spinning and spinning and spinning and it almost seems like it's going to stop but cut, credits.

Maybe Dom gets kidnapped and experimented on in a secret research facility.

When he comes out he's like Death Proof but also a Transformer that can turn into cars and can't die in a crash.

FASTMAGEDDON. NASA asks Dom to assemble a team to redirect an asteroid headed for earth with NOS.

Bonus. Dom is left behind on the asteroid but launches off the asteroid in his Charger headed for Earth using NOS to boost him into re entry. Dom survives reentry in his Charger but doesnt have a parachute. Han now piloting the space shuttle matches falling velocity with Dom's charger. Dom jumps out of the car since it falls faster then a human. Letty grabs a parachute and jumps out of the space shuttle and catches Dom mid air (Point Break style) and everyone lands safely.
