AwardsWatch Podcast #183: ‘Fast X’ review, revisiting and ranking the ‘Fast and the Furious’ franchise, plus the first ‘Killers of the Flower Moon’ trailer
On episode 183 of The AwardsWatch Podcast, AW Executive Editor Ryan McQuade is joined by Editor-In-Chief Erik Anderson and AW contributors Zach Laws and Catherine Gonzales to review Fast X and discuss the Fast and the Furious franchise as a whole.
Before the gang gets behind the wheel of their Fast conversation, a big trailer dropped this past week for Martin Scorsese’s Killers of the Flower Moon, which will be released in theaters later in October. To put it mildly, it’s one of the best trailers of the year, and in light of the film’s premiere at the Cannes Film Festival, there was a lot to discuss.
Moving on, the team got to dive deep into the latest entry in the Vin Diesel led action packed extravaganzas, Fast X. The franchise hits the home stretch, as this film alongside the eleventh and twelfth installment look to close out the long running story for Dom and his family, and there is plenty to talk about including, a fantastic new bad guy, tons of cameos, moments of absolute nonsense, and insane, over the top set pieces. Ryan, Erik, Zach and Catherine break it all down as well as give out their rankings for the franchise as a whole, say who their favorite and least favorite characters are, what is the dumbest moment in this franchise, and more.
