MovieFilm Episode 116 – Part 2!

_aaa8025e-c012-11e6-b4af-637223eab3d5But that’s not all for the MovieFilm Podcast this week! We still had more to say, so we hung around a little while longer to offer up our thoughts on the latest (greatest?) entry in Universal’s long-running Fast & Furious franchise, The Fate of the Furious, which revved its engines to the tune of a $500 million-plus global opening this past weekend — the biggest in history. So, how does Vin Diesel’s latest “family” adventure play compare to its forerunners? Does the series weather the loss of co-star Paul Walker? How soon before the Rock conquers the world? We ponder all these questions and more in a special Fate of the Furious extra episode of the MovieFilm show! Listen below, or at iTunes or Stitcher or Google Play.
