If you live your life a quarter-mile at a time, then you'll want to travel a few of them for Dendy Coorparoo's latest movie festival. In the kind of film frenzy we could all use right now, the eastside picture palace will be screening seven flicks from the Fast & Furious franchise over four days.
From Thursday, August 20–Sunday, August 23, prepare to rev up your excitement — with the movie that started it all, plus the high-octane cinema spectacle's fourth, fifth, sixth, seventh and eighth instalments, and its recent spinoff as well. If you've mixed up the franchise's many titles featuring the words 'fast' and/or 'furious', here's what you're in for: 2001's The Fast and the Furious (aka Point Break with vehicles), 2009's Fast & Furious (now with more heists and spying), 2011's Fast Five (the one where The Rock joins the fun), 2013's Fast & Furious 6 (featuring a back-from-the-dead favourite), 2015's Furious 7 (otherwise known as "hey, let's throw Jason Statham into the mix as well"), 2017's The Fate of the Furious (with added Charlize Theron) and 2019's Fast & Furious: Hobbs & Shaw (aka the movie that was always going to eventuate).
Bringing your family, whether they're related by blood or they're the friends you consider as close as kin, seems like a fitting thing to do. You'll have to buy your tickets separately per film, though — so it's up to you whether you strap in for just a movie or two, or ride out the whole thing.
Dendy Coorparoo's Fast & Furious Fest runs from Thursday, August 20–Sunday, August 23.
