As someone who was too young to really experience the 90s FMV craze first hand, this is something else.

Like...did anyone involved with this actually think this was a good, quality product?

I'm glad at least Dan agrees with me that the runway scene is the best sequence in this franchise.

I think after rewatching these films for this I've come to the conclusion that 5 is the best film start to finish, but the last 40 minutes of 6 (the tank-bridge sequence forward) are the best scenes.

And I agree with Alex, 7 is great too, but not quite on the same level of sheer absurdity. Wan does a decent job directing 7, but Lin knew exactly how to shoot these films by the time 6 was made.

I had a feeling this would be the one where Vinny got fully on board. Glad that turned out to be the case.

I love 6 and 7 almost as much, so I can't wait to re-watch those as well.

"As we screech our way through the greatest of all the drifting-focused Fast and the Furious movies." -> Isn't this the only drift-focused F&F movie? Lol.

This is both the best and the worst F&F movie. Can't wait to listen/watch later.

5 > 6 > 7 > 3 > 1 > 4 > 2

5 and 6 are very close. 3 is probably the worst objectively as a movie, but once you accept the story is pure nonsense it can be fun.

@andrew2696: At the time it came out 4 did not impress me too much, but I think in retrospect after seeing the later films it does deserve some credit for refocusing the franchise and shifting it away from street racing towards the crime stuff the later movies would pull off well. I would agree that by itself it's not that great.

I love the very last scene though where Vin Diesel is going off to prison and the rest of the crew shows up to bust him out, echoing the stupid car-heist thing they were doing in the first film.

I would disagree about watching it in 'timeline' order, I recommend watching it chronologically by release. Because *SPOILERS* knowing that Han will die makes his appearances in 4, 5, and 6 + his eventual falling in love more bittersweet.. It also just adds to the awesome stupidity of the franchise when you realize that the movie with flip-phones (Tokyo Drift) takes place after the high-tech hijinks of 6.

Anyway, I love this series, and was looking for an excuse to rewatch it before Fate of the Furious, so thanks for this audio!

I'm replaying the Mass Effect series (about halfway through ME2 atm), and I agree that Virmire is a high point of the game that stands above the other three, pre-endgame main missions (Feros/Noveria/Liara). I still got some chills when Sovereign revealed itself to be a Reaper, even though I knew the twist was coming and had played the game 3 or 4 times prior.

I think the last mission (Ilos through the end of the game) is also very good, but Virmire is very memorable and quite significant when viewed in the context of the whole series.

I've been cautiously optimistic about this game and I think I'm sold after watching this. Gameplay looks solid enough and I'm interested in the live action cutscenes.

I got into WoW recently and my endgame experience with Warlords was pretty similar to Rorie's...the garrison/follower thing felt too much like a microtransaction-esque mobile game at some point, and I play as a healer and am anxious about causing my groups to wipe in heroic dungeons/raids.

My lvl 100 is a priest so I'm currently working on leveling up a monk healer, which I think I like playing as more, and will give the endgame another shot when Legions comes out.
