Fans with moral fortitude knew to boycott 2017’s The Fate of the Furious over the repulsive development that crime lord Deckard Shaw was actually invited to a cookout after becoming a good guy in a convoluted twist – because, of course, there was a free seat at the table because Shaw had killed team member… Continue reading Hobbs & Shaw

Baywatch

It’s always bugged me that “private investigators” who are strictly licensed to gather intel on missing persons or conduct surveillance on cheating spouses, in the movies at least, get involved in murder investigations which is the sole jurisdiction of law enforcement.
