    This is how movies should be made. Not much I didn't like about it. I don't know why we didn't hear more about this one. It didn't get much press.

    grab your :popcorn: and :beer: and stfu and enjoy a good action flick.

    I think part may have been to do with the budget. the budget was smaller than the first fast and furious movie.

    Budget: $24,000,000 (estimated)
    Opening Weekend: $8,523,153 (USA) (28 November 2010) (2454 Screens)
    Gross: $23,240,020 (USA) (10 February 2011)

    I liked it. Wasn't able to catch it in theaters, but I rented it.

    Also, to 95b16coupe, if you haven't figured it out by now, he's talking about "Faster" not "Fast and Furious" or "FastFive."

    Saw it a while back and agree. It's a pretty damn good movie to just sit down and watch.

    added.

    netflix needs to get on the ball and just have everything streamable. ive actually been preferring the streaming content lately since they have a lot of stuff in HD

    With the price change (starting this month I believe) they damn well better. All I do is stream.

    It's not going to happen. as prices for the dvd's and licensing goes up, they are going to charge more for the dvd service. Blame the movie studios, not netflix.

    Then why wouldn't DVD only cost more than streaming only? As most of the bigger movies people are more likely to seek out are DVD only wouldn't it seem to be the other way around? If it costs more to have hard copies why wouldnt they put everything on streaming and push that. I don't want to wait on their DVDs anyway.

    Because Netflix has to pay more to keep a movie streaming permanently than to give you one disc at a time. Normally people can't go through more than 4 or 5 movies per month due to mailing time restrictions. It's also way it takes 28 days to get a physical disc sent out. the licensing rights are restricted to improve dvd sales.

    It's the same reason some shows have the entire series streaming and others you have to order 1 disc at a time.

    hulu needs more movies, netflix needs more streaming and tv shows. cable needs more movies and shows on demand.

    none of those provide me with 100% happiness.

    My best option is to have fast internet and know how to use a torrent.
