I saw Fast & Furious on French television a week or so ago. For those not in the know, it's the fourth and presumably final (but possibly penultimate!) movie in the Fast/Furious series. In French, it seemed non-sensical and generally ridiculous. A couple days later, I caught the second half of the movie in English. It was still non-sensical and ridiculous. If anything, comprehending the dialogue only served to increase the ridiculousness.
I also caught Alpha Dog earlier in the week. Decently acceptable fare. As much as I wanted it to end positively, I sort of knew it could only end one way since it's based on true events.
