The MFF podcast is back, and this week we’re talking about 2 Fast 2 Furious. My favorite film of the Fast & Furious franchise is 2 Fast 2 Furious, and I know  I am in the minority of people who believe this movie could even place in the top three. It isn’t the hipster (Tokyo Drift), obvious (Fast Five), or off the wall pick (Fast & Furious). I’m not saying it is the best film of the franchise, because Fast Five obviously deserves the acclaim. It is my favorite because it is the underdog second film that gave the world the Brian O’Conner/Roman Pearce friendship, and introduced Ludacris’ Tej character. 2 Fast 2 Furious focuses on car culture and the type of “family” that Dominic Toretto could only dream of. I love how everything feels lived in and instead of talking about “family” it shows us fantastic examples of brotherhood and friendship. For instance, I love how Roman is introduced to the world. He is on house arrest and uses his driving skills to win demolition derbies in some backwoods area. When Brian approaches him in an effort to recruit him for an undercover mission they engage in a pretty great fight where they exchange some seemingly dumb dialogue (You still fight like shit!) that actually does a solid job establishing a history between them.

If you are a fan of the podcast, make sure to send in some random listener questions so we can do our best to not answer them correctly. We thank you for listening, and hope you enjoy the episode!
