Recently watched Logan Lucky, quite a good movie honestly. Has some high dollar actors in it too, Channing Tatum, Daniel Craig, and Adam Driver. Definitely more of a redneck movie tho, but fitting since I used to live right beside Charlotte Motor Speedway. Would recommend.

EDIT : Also, if you watch NASCAR, a LOT of the scenes have drivers in it, whether they are faux Police Officers or Limo drivers... Quite fun to spot them.

I'm hard to please when it comes to movies, most bore me. I don't understand the recent appeal of super hero movies, they were all pretty boring to me.

I was really skeptical of an Adam Sandler movie but Uncut Gems was both an amazing movie and an amazing performance for Adam. Highly recommended !!

I saw that in the theater like three years ago, that was good. I think Dwight Yoakam was also in the movie ?

I thought Daniel Craig as a redneck was brilliant and a great departure from Bond. On that note, I think he is one of the best Bond's and would like to see him stick with it for a while longer.

The girl and I had been wanting to watch some of the Craig Bond's, but she found Logan Lucky and was like "It's sort of a redneck James Bond!" lol.

Ghostbusters was horrible. Birds Of Prey just looks like more pandering. I do appreciate more female leads and female heroines for our daughters to look up to... just make them good/decent movies. Kill Bill, Atomic Blonde, Mad Max Fury Road, Wonder Woman.

The movie's pretty rockin' as well.

I told my wife: "I'm sorry honey, but If Charlize Theron bangs on the door and says to run away with her, I'm outta here."

iMy wife's response? "If Charlize Thereon bangs on the door, **I'm** running away with her!"

Heh.

Supposedly there is an atomic blonde two in the works. I hope it works out better than the John Wick two, and especially John Wick three.

Thought the same as I mentioned above. And they gave it enough time to let the story unfold vs. trying to cram it all in a 2 hour time frame.

Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water.....

A 'Fast and Furious' film with an all-female cast is in the works

https://driving.ca/dodge/auto-news/n...s-in-the-works

Vin Diesel confirms a script is in development for a new spin-off starring some of the women from the franchise

Michelle Rodriguez as daredevil Letty, Vin Diesel as fugitive ex-con Dom Toretto and director Justin Lin on the set of The 'Fast and The Furious 6.'Universal Pictures

Fast 9 isnít even out yet, and already Vin Diesel is talking about making another Fast and Furious movie ó except this time, thereís a twist.

ĎIíve created a female spin-off,Ē Diesel said in a recent MTV interview. ďAnd that script comes next month, so we will see.Ē

Yes, an all-female Fast and Furious film is happening!

Diesel actually hinted at doing this a few years back, but now there are some real names attached to the production. According to Diesel, Nicole Perlman, Lindsey Beer and Geneva Robertson-Dworet are involved with the script.

If you donít know who those people are, you should. Nicole Perlman wrote the script for the fabulous Guardians of the Galaxy, and Beer was a writer for Sierra Burgess Is a Loser. Robertson-Dworet was on the team that wrote the scripts for Captain Marvel, as well as Tomb Raider.

There are plenty of female characters from the franchise that could be featured in the film. Michelle Rodriguez is an obvious one, as well as Jordana Brewster. There are also a few new faces who joined the series more recently that could make an appearance such as Charlize Theron; or Nathalie Emmanuel, who played hacker Ramsay. The cast has at this point not at all been even hinted at, though.

A female spin-off could do well for the franchise; after all, Fast and Furious is one of the only movie series where a spin-off has actually done well for itself, in particular Hobbs and Shaw.

After the ninth Fast film, rumours are there will be a 10th and likely final film, possibly split into two parts, coming in 2021.
