Hobbs & Shaw summary: (Ultra low spoilers)

Great charisma, good looking, sexily wrapped but oh so very, very boring. The Rock and Jason are fab, but that's about it.

The airport scene was funny, as were other scenes, but I simply couldn't wait for it to end.

Good lord... Mission Impossible 2 story line mixed with Universal Soldier. Plus a bike that could be from Transformers.

zZzzZzzzz. I don't regret watching it but my GOD it would be great to have something new.

P.s. Momma rocked.

It is funny, because you have three big stars here, but I couldn't be less interested in watching it. I've seen the trailers a dozen times at the theater and it looks less and less interesting with each view.
I'm bad, and that's good. I will never be good, and that's not bad. There's no one I'd rather be than me.

Well I've never been interested in watching the films of F&F... the trailers just doesn't do it for me.

But they keep getting them done and each one of them seems to be more successfull than the last, so what the fuck do I know?

I was never interested in Hobbs and Shaw, but the trailers did make it look better than I had thought it would be. Still, wasn't interesting enough to get me to go to the theater. There's only so much mindless action bollocks I can take in one summer.
I used to indecisive, but now I'm not so sure.

Go Against the Flow.

Saw the new QT flick. Wasn't that impressed. It was fine, had some interesting parts, but never really went anywhere, then the ending happens and is totally out of character with the rest of the film. Interesting how that whole movie is put together. Dicaprio is really good in it though, or maybe is just playing himself.

Wife and I saw H&S. It was just what you'd expect, a mindlessly forgettable but fun action film. Seriously, I can't think of a thing about it that stands out.

The crazy part is he's just about the most uncharismatic black actor on the planet, compared to say Denzel or Samuel or Fishburne or Boyega.
Proud to be perma-banned 5 times on NeoGAF.
