Fast & Phooey
Movie: ‘The Fate of the Furious’
The first movie I reviewed for The Lakeville Journal was “Fast & Furious” — the oddly titled fourth installment of the Fast and the Furious franchise — in 2009. The Compass editor at the time knew I had a degree in cinema and was expecting something along the lines of Andrew Sarris or Pauline Kael. Instead she got a minor league Joe Bob Briggs.
I set the bar nice and low with that first review by becoming the first and only Journal movie reviewer to complain of insufficient nudity. And I’ve been shoving that bar lower ever since.
