Fast & Furious 5

Recommended Posts

Watched Fast & Furious 5 yesterday, after falling asleep for a while, I decided to calculate how long it would take the US government to print the $100 million they were going to so much fuss to steal in the film. From what I thought I remembered they printed $2 billion a month, so these guys were trying to steal the equivilent of about 1.5 days of printing, thought it was a lot of fuss over something that took so little time to print, that sounded like so much...and gosh, arn't they're printing a lot of money.

I came home and checked my figures, I found I had made a horrible mistake. They were actually printing about $75 billion a month, so the $100 million they were trying to steal was only worth 1 hour of printing.

I then went on to reflect that the employment rate is such that in large areas in the US nearly 70% of working age adults don't have a job, and that in the collapsed Soviet Union nearly 100% of the population pretended to work...how effective was thier pretend work? Maybe 30% of someone hard working? So if the equation is that 100% of the population working at 30% = collapse, does 30% and the population working hard, and 70% with no job also equal collapse?

I'm a bit disappointed. I was looking for an in-depth critique of the film.

Well I did mention I fell asleep during the film, I think that is a pretty stinging critique.

er... it takes about a pico second to print any amount of money these days. It's just the number of zeros that vary.

In the olden days, (about 3 years ago,) it was thought that printing massive amounts of money was a stupid idea. You can just call me old fashioned.

It takes very little time to create credit balances. Printing of paper money takes as long as it takes to do a print run. very little of the created money has been printed (if any). The legitimacy of those credit balances is very much the question.

Cue Injin type "what is money" questions.

Thank goodness you explained to me it's all about credit balances and not printing money, because I was getting worried there.

Fast & Furious......, dont you just hate it when something underground gets commercialised

on a global scale :(

FORGET ANY footage you've ever seen in any Fast & Furious especially Tokyo drift.

This is the real deal :

Lamborghini Murcielago 2008 Vs SUPRA 1200 Hp

Supra VS Lambo

Osaka Touge street Drifting

700hp turbo hatch vs kawasaki z1000

P.S Cars are like printy printy... the more common a car you buy the quicker it devalues... ;)

It's an existentialist parable about the isolated nature of urban society.

With cars and tities.

its sh!t, dont waste good haed earned money paying to see it in the cinema, go and use that money and buy a nice bottle of wine (or 2) or something else that will bring you enjoyment for a moment. as this film offered non of that.

luckliy i didnt pay to see it (as such, i have a Cineworld card), other wise i would have demanded my money back.

the story is thin at best, the acting is terible, the car scenes are rubbish, and the plot is predictable. i found the trailers for the other films more gripping than the whole film
