That is were I learned about it as well and why I was interested in seeing the full movie.

Rather famously, the part was written for like a 50 year-old guy. Then that actress came in, auditioned for it, did well enough for them to agree to cast her, and she was adamant that absolutely nothing get rewritten to account for it.my favorite character is still mccoy, who the movie goes to incredible lengths to avoid having to have anyone say is a lesbian. instead we just get the most euphemistic use of "soldier" i've ever heard in my life
McCoy fuckin owns.Rather famously, the part was written for like a 50 year-old guy. Then that actress came in, auditioned for it, did well enough for them to agree to cast her, and she was adamant that absolutely nothing get rewritten to account for it.
The same thing also happened with Lenny from Legion.
Honestly he reminded me of Ward from Iron Fist. The second you see him, you go "Ah yes, I have seen this character before in thousands of other movies and tv shows, and therefore know exactly what purpose he serves and what to expect because archetypes like this are are useful storytelling shorthand."Rick Moranis as a sleazy manager who is also... sort of a bad-ass?
In the last few weeks, I too powered through all of the F&F movies. I loved pretty much all of them? If I'm ranking them against each other, I would go:Been watching some Fast & Furious movies with the new one coming out:
The Fast and the Furious is a perfectly fine Point Break. Paul Walker gives off strong young Keanu vibes, and Vin Diesel is still identifiably human. It is an aggressively 2001 movie.
2 Fast 2 Furious is a movie that seems like it knows what the series will become, but still doesn't quite have the magic of Fast 5. Instead of Point Break its Miami Vice. An observation from the Blank Check podcast, but this movie really holds up the furious end of the title, as everyone seems unjustifiably angry all the time.
Fast 5 is still the best. A masterpiece.
Han’s resurrection and its explanation is totally perfunctory. (don’t care; it’s fine, barely remember who these people are or how they relate to each other)
No idea who that guy was… sorry…

3 = 5 > 1 > 7 > 2 > 6 = 8 > 4 > H&S
Solid ranking. Can't really begrudge anyone for their rankings either. Totally get why people would put 3 low, don't think anyone has to apologize or explain that one; it just hit really well for me.My rankings go 5 > 6 > 1 > 7 > H&S >2 > 8 > 3 > 4.
I love the tradition for a stretch in there of him totally breaking the 4th wall and apparently being aware of how he's fated to die and going "eh, I don't think I'm going back to Japan yet. Gonna hang out for at least another movie, make it also have to be a prequel."I love Han, but one thing that stood out to me rewatching 5 & 6 is that he really doesn't do anything. Which is part of what makes him great; he's essentially playing the Brad Pitt role in the Ocean's 11 movies; he just needs to stand around eating chips and looking cool.
