It will probably be me but I don't know when yet. I know all the reasons to hate this series and I really lost interest after Paul Walker passed away but, I like movies, I like cars, therefore I like car movies. I started collecting F&F memorabilia early on.

I've got a couple of posters I forget which movies but they are like 30' x 14' they are in 8 sections. Who knows what I'll ever do with them. On Thursday night I went to my local theater to see if they were giving out any promo stuff but they weren't. The manager Lilly, said she would save me one of the extra movie posters which was nice of her.

I'm not totally sure Lilly was a girl though.

I like the movie franchise also. I know it’s totally unrealistic but I was 19 when I saw the first one in the theatre. They’ve got racing and cars and action so for me it’s good entertainment. And seems it’s kinda mopar based so perfect for me. I grew up watching dukes of hazard reruns and Smokey and the bandit on Sunday afternoons on TV. So any car movie will do it for me. I doubt plan on seeing F9 in the theatre. I’ll wait for blue ray and watch it on my 70” tv in the basement probably at 2am cause I don’t sleep well….
Anybody else ever seen the 70’s move hi-riders? I watched that movie as a kid and it inspired me to have my charger jacked up as I do now… so wish I could have been around in the 70’s. I’m an ‘83 model so I missed out.

That movie franchise got waaaay too ridiculous after the..... well after the first movie. The '70 charger is the only reason to watch that movie. It's reputation is built up nicely with mystery and wonder. And of course it gets destroyed as it seems that's just what happens to chargers in hollywood.
As for the rest of the series, they're just too far-fetched. I suppose I can handle the second one because of the Challenger and Yenko Camaro.
I'll wait for 9 to show up on TV someday.

Nope. Didn't even make it halfway through the first one. Lowest common denominator movies.

I will probably be one of the last to see it. However, I am shallow...are there any chicks in it?

I like a good mystery but the biggest mystery to me is how a stiff and wooden "actor" like Vin Diesel could have reached this level of success. The lumber aisle at Home Depot had more expressive 2x4s than that guy.
To me, what makes an action movie great is when the stunts are just outrageous enough to be possible.....maybe.
This series has some of the stupidest and most ludicrous stunts ever put on film. It really does. One had them dragging a 20 ton safe with 2 rear wheel drive Chargers. Another had a sports car crashing through windows of a skyscraper, through the air and into another skyscraper....twice.
They had one sequence on an airport runway that lasted 20 minutes....Have you ever seen a 132 mile long airport runway? Me neither.
They have fight scenes less believable than the ones in the Rocky movies.
The acting shows about as much depth as a Lifetime movie.
#4 seemed to have the most heart and the most realistic and believable plot......AND the least amount of CGI bullshit.

I'm proud to say that I've never seen one.
I watched the 1st one after it had been out for a good while. Just not into so much fake stuff. I know there's a lot of CG scenes in movies these days but when it's done right and looks real, I'm ok with it but a Charger standing on it's butt on the street ain't real to me. I've 'hopped' a couple of cars to where the front end came off the ground several inches and it would have made a good pic but even that kind of stuff isn't really real either. I'd be more than happy to watch Vanishing Point for the 5th or 6th time but watching The Crass and the Curious once was more than enough for me.

These movies are not recommended for people that don't like ; Chargers, action, and hot chicks.
