Quarter Mile at a Time – Fast & Furious

I live my life a quarter-mile at a time. Nothing else matters; not the mortgage; not the store; not my team and their bullshit. For those 10 seconds or less, I’m free.” – Vin Diesel as Dominic Toretto

This is not a good film.

FAVORITE CHARACTER

A car is only as good as its driver and this franchise is always introducing new faces, here is our favorite character from the film.

NATHAN

Brian O’Conner

https://fastandfurious.fandom.com/wiki/Brian_O%27Conner?file=Brian_F4-01.png

This is also not my favorite movie, but if I had to chose one character its got to be Brian. Brian will always be my go to character in any Fast and Furious movie, and you will learn that more in the coming weeks.

STEVE

Dominic Toretto

https://fastandfurious.fandom.com/wiki/Fast_%26_Furious_(film)
My favorite character is NOT Dom, in actuality it’s nobody because I hate this movie. But since I had to choose one I stuck with a classic, I also chose Dom because Tej is not in this movie.

FAVORITE SCENES

NATHAN

The rematch the everyone was waiting for between Brian and Dom. This is the only scene I truly enjoyed in the whole movie.
Who doesn’t love a good scuffle between Brian and Dom, I sure know I do.

This is the second week in a row where I am posting something that isn’t a scene from the movie, but in my defense this is a very interesting video. I’m a sucker for anything behind the scenes, I love seeing how movies are made.

The only saving grace of this movie, this is the only scene that is even remotely cool.
This has been the third installment of “Quarter Mile at a Time”. Stay tuned as every week we take a trip through every movie in the Fast and Furious franchise.
