Fast and the Furious

[ #7718 ]
Just saw this courtesy the TiVo. The Director is proof that anyone can get a job in Hollywood. What crap. What utter utter crap.

I blame the director for: shooting a script with crap dialogue full of cliches, attempting to cover up bad acting and dialogue with hammy music, unabashed directorial cliches (ooh, the wobbly footage of a fast car's wheel, that hasn't been done before!), and ghastly editing (never take two seconds to tell a story when you can take ten!).

I wish DVDs came with the soundtrack and dialogue on separate tracks, so I could do a Phantom Edit of bad movies to make them less bad. As it is, I'll screw the continuity of the music if I take out five fat seconds in the middle of a ten second musical wank.

    At least the casting directory knows what the director should really be doing . . .

    On a related note, I keep wondering if the `From the director of Charlie's Angels' blurb on the Miami Vice 2k Fox show (I'm too lazy to look up the real name; hip cops with fast cars, you know the one; all that's missing is Jan Hammer and flamingoes . . .) is indended as a warning.

    Flamingoes? Flamingos? Flamingi? Flamingen?
