Another week, another film I haven't seen :)

(Apparently I'd seen 2Fast somewhere before, but completely forgot until I got to the rat scene)

Edit: @danryckert You ain't seen Bad Boys 2?!

Loading Video...

Surprised Dan didn't see the NOS machine in the Paul Walker foot chase - seems like the sort of thing he'd spot.

I actually though the Letty murder was going to be an FBI setup to lure Toretto out but apparently not.

Also, I might have seen this - I definitely remembered them driving into the tunnels both times and the prison bus (though thought it was in Fast 5) but absolutely nothing else :/. Toretto/O'Conner's Cop-Cop/Not-Cop bit was pretty good though, as was their "Essence of Face Twisting"-esque fight.

I wouldn't worry about the FBI guy with the weird face though - he was just auditioning for Mass Effect: Andromeda :p

If anyone feels like watching this twice, you can also checkout the Rifftrax for this movie which is pretty good:

Anyone have a video player that works for this sort of stuff? I am struggling to find anything other than just doing it myself across multiple outputs.

Tokyo Drift was such a blast that in gonna watch this one as well!

Like @ravage484 asked: anyone have any suggestions on how to synchronize things without having to manually keep a trigger finger on two different windows? It's especially problematic when I want to go to the bathroom and I have to stop both and resynch both.

I like this movie a lot. GPS is the future.

We get to talk about "not a cop," "I'm a cop" again. :) :)

For the people having problems, why don't you just download the audio and use your phone or table to play their commentary?

The actual worst movie in the franchise that I've seen. I'll stand by 2Fast as not the worst movie and would even say it is better than 1 other movie...

Can't wait until I get home to watch/listen. Fast & Furious might have a dumb name, but it's the most underrated of the series. I get why people think it's too serious, but it brings a gravitas to these characters​ and their relationships that the subsequent movies all exploit to the fullest. Fast Five is nothing without this movie laying the groundwork.

Besides which, I'm a sucker for a good murder mystery.

Am I a cop?

I'm enjoying this commentary track but this is the only movie in the franchise I've seen only one time until today and I'm easily remembering why now. Zzz...

Man, that CG in the tunnel was soooooo bad, it almost looked like an actual video game cutscene.

Also, with all the talk of Vin Diesel being fucking buff and huge as hell, it still baffles me to this day that a person like that is actually a huge nerd.

I use Auto Mouse Click, it's super easy to use and works really well, you just need to have it capture the screen coordinates for both pause buttons and then just make an action that quickly clicks on those spots and you're good.

These are SO GOOD.

I feel like it would be a travesty if you didn't sit down with @danryckert and watch Bad Boys 1 and 2. He would love those movies, I know I do.

@humanity: You could start up VLC and use the Open Multiple Files option to have the film as video, and GBEast as audio. This will require some fannying around with the Track Synchronisation, and because it replaces the film's audiotrack you'll lose the music, effects, and dialogue the guys riff on, but you will only have one pause button to worry about.

Personally I figure that the synch doesn't need to be perfect, but if I notice the audio is terribly behind/ahead, I'll just pause one of the media players for a sec.

Loving this series probably more than I should, already getting sad that there will only be 8, hopefully they do this with another series but I can't think of any that would be as good

I jumped straight from the first to this one a couple years ago, and I honestly feel that it's the right path to go with (you miss some Tej and Roman backstory, but ah well). But then again, I thought Tokyo Drift didn't live up to the Giant Bomb hype.

Anyway, Film and 40s has always been awesome, and having one each week is spoiling me so much.

Statuesque (adjective):

(especially of a woman) attractively tall and dignified.

I'd say Dan actually nailed the definition here.

This is why for now I am locked in to watching these movies once I sit down. I have no answer. When it gets out of synch I lose it too.

Not the best in the series, but this is definitely the entry that I've seen the most. There's just something about it that makes it perfect background noise for half-watching while doing something else.

This is the only Fast and Furious movie I haven't watched all the way through, and I own it! I've fallen asleep or just lost interest every time I've tried. Maybe a 40 will help me stick with it.
