Sometimes, even when it comes to the hottest movies, I fall behind catching them in theaters and that includes those in a franchise. It comes down to taking in these cinematic works on DVD or TV. That was the case with the first few installments of “The Fast and the Furious” movies and then I followed up 5, 6 and 7 at home as well. I hoped to finally see the most recent addition to “F & F” on the big screen. Unfortunately, I missed it and awaited its release on DVD, planning to watch it with my best friend during one of my visits.

However, we don’t always get around to enjoying movies, getting more into fun girl talk and catching up with anything new going on. So, just a few nights ago, I finally got to see “The Fate of the Furious” (2017) when scrolling through the TV Guide grid looking for something of interest.

I haven’t written about any movies from this action-packed franchise and as the closing credits rolled, I had an idea. Why not re-watch each installment and write about them as I go? One “F & F” movie or another airs here and there on TV, yet I can’t say I’ve watched any of them a great number of times. Despite that, I feel as though no matter how many times someone sees them, the stunts continue to amaze. I’ll wonder just how they pulled off such intense action behind the wheel. But at the same time, I don’t want to lose the mystery and movie magic that goes into bringing together many incredible car stunts throughout the franchise.

I can’t wait to go through each movie again as there is so much to say about the cast, characters, best quotes, settings, plot points and car-heavy stunts. The cars used in “F & F” also give me a lot to write about, since I love so many cool rides. A recent favorite of mine is definitely the latest Dodge Challenger model. The slick one in the photo above is one I spotted at a local car show this past November. I write about various car shows on my photo / travel blog; it’s one of my top warm-weather activities. Check out more images I snapped of cool wheels on this post.

For me, each “F & F” movie has a favorite moment besides the climactic action scene. I can’t say yet which installment is #1 in my opinion. Which one is tops for you?
