As WFMU DJ Tom Scharpling recently noted, what happened to the “Fast and the Furious” franchise? Wasn’t this series once about a pair of cops who were trying to stop people from driving their cars too fast?
How did it gradually become a movie about a bunch of spies who are trying to take down international terrorists who also happen to be street racers, apparently? And when did “The Fast and the Furious 5″ come out? It feels like it was just three weeks ago? Shouldn’t we get a little breather before Vin Diesel’s eerie, circumcised head is shoved down our throats again?
At any rate, please enjoy all of the vroom, vroom, crash, crash, homoeroticism of “The Fast and the Furious 6″ and I’ll try to figure out why a street racer would want to steal something as bulky and slow as a tank.
