2 Fast 2 Forever #302 – Fast X: Fourth Gear
We’re keeping the Fast X hype train going by crossing over with X is for Show, featuring Nico, Kevo, and TK! After our brief intro, this episode is the audio version of the most recent episode of their video series, which you can watch in its entirety on YouTube. After taking a trip down memory lane to reminisce about Spy Racers, we dive into Fast X to get TK’s take on moving from the early films to the most recent installment, whether sacrificing character in favor of tropes is good or bad, and whether or not audiences should “allow” this bifurcation of a story into two movies? We compare F&F characters to Batman and X-Files character, compare Dom’s relation to his family to video game mechanics, and explore Brian Tyler’s score and how he incorporated Swan Lake.
