Movie Review of Fast and Furious 4

Fast and Furious 4 - 5.5/10
Directed by Justin Lin
Cast - Vin Diesel, Paul Walker,Michelle Rodriguez,Jordana Brewster

Plot Summary
Brian O'Conner, now working for the FBI in LA, teams up with Dominic Toretto to bring down a heroin importer by infiltrating his operation.

I am not a car enthusiast(cos I rather drink than drive) and I do not know much about cars and all that shit.But what I do enjoy is a good car chase movie.Classic Car chase movies like French Connection(Gene Hackman),Bullit(The Great Steve Mcqueen) and Vanishing Point were a real treat to watch.Even the later movies like the Bourne series and a few others were great.
Now I have watched all four movies of the Fast and Furious franchise and I got to admit,I enjoyed the first and the current one the best.Fast and Furious 4 has all the right ingredients for a good car chase and action movie.Vin Diesel is back and I do like this fella.He cant act for shit though but he is a good action movie star.Just like my all time favourite action movie hero of the 80's and 90's...Arnold Schwarzenegger.I recently watched the Riddick Chronicles and I enjoyed it as well.Babylon AD was just so so and The Pacifier was shit.But whatever it is Vin Diesel returns alongside with Paul Walker and the stupid woman who can't keep her big fucking mouth shut,Michelle Rodriguez.Why do u ask,on why I am berating her for her big fucking mouth.Its not because she talks alot in this movie...Its because recently she said(whined) in a televised interview,about why she doesn't get any satisfying roles and all the upcoming movies she has done in 2009,she will die.All this because she is not a white woman(or some shit like that).
Its fucking bad enough she is whining about how limited her roles are just because she is a woman...For Fuck's Sake!!! You are a Hollywood actress,You are well known,You can act(sometimes) and You were in LOST(Series)!!!There are lots of unknown female actresses who have a much better acting talent than you who would love to have at least half of whatever your roles,you have done.AND WHY THE FLYING FUCK WOULD YOU TELL OUT SPOILERS THAT YOU ARE GONNA FUCKING DIE IN EVERY UPCOMING 2009 MOVIE YOU ARE IN????why the fuck would you do something like that for? what did we....the audience,the movie fanatics do to you???It's stupid shits like this that pisses me off.Fuck you Cunt! I really hope you die for real in all the 2010 movies,you are gonna act in.

The camera works for FF4 was not bad actually.Alot of really good tight shots were use for the car chase scenes and editing was ok too.My favourite scene would be the chase in the tunnel.Justin Lin direction was not bad as well.I would say he did a pretty decent job for FF3 and FF4 as well.There's nothing much going on for the acting department since the whole movies concentrates on the cars.As some of my car enthusiast friends told me,there weren't much Asian cars this time,more on American muscle cars.Which I don't give a fuck about..cause like I mentioned earlier,I rather Drink than Drive.

Worth watching on a weekday...and that's about it.Watch it on a weekend only if you are really that bored.

Movie Review of Fanboys

Fanboys - 4.5/10
Directed by Kye Newman
Cast - Sam Huntington,Chris Marquette,Dan Fogler,Jay Baruchel

Plot Summary
"Star Wars" fans travel to Skywalker Ranch to steal an early copy of "Episode I: The Phantom Menace".

After watching the trailer,I really wanted to watch this movie.Well I am a Star Wars fan and this is a movie about Star Wars fans.From the trailer,there are lots of cameo appearances and all the parts did look funny.Unfortunately,the movie itself isn't good.All the funny parts are in the trailer and thats about it.
There are scenes which would make you feel nostalgic and all and especially when they do the classic Star Wars lines.Even the scene where you have the Star Wars fanboys go against the Star Trek fanboys.
The acting isn't really good.Some of the actors just dont look the part and does not convince me as being funny.
The direction is pretty bad and so is the cinematography.The biggest dissappointment is the editing.I feel the editing is what made the movie look very flat and mediocre.
All in all,I wouldnt recommend anyone to watch this movie at the cinema on a weekend.
Watch in on a weekday or just wait for the dvd so you can rent it out.
