I'm marathonning all 8 Fast & Furious films today, in story order. This is my "Los Bandoleros" open thread

The Fast and the Furious Thread:

2 Fast 2 Furious & "Turbo-Charged Prelude" Thread:


Time for our second short film! The Vin Diesel-directed half-hour short "Los Bandoleros"! Down the rabbit hole we go...

Note: this is the only F&F film I've never seen before. Also, we're doing this in story order, so: The Fast and the Furious, Turbo-Charged Prelude, 2 Fast 2 Furious, Los Bandoleros, Fast & Furious, Fast 5, Fast & Furious 6, The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift (STORY order as opposed to release order - I know Tokyo Drift came out third but the events take place after 4, 5, and 6. Can't say any more without serious spoilers)

In the surprise of the century, the very very beginning of Los Bandoleros is 100% indistinguishable from the very beginning of Tony Award-winning musical In the Heights. This is funny, but I am not kidding.

Um...anti Iraq-war poetry? I'm now ready for anything

Just FYI I think this whole movie is in Spanish. I'm watching a foreign language film. I feel cultured as FUCK


OH SHIT IT'S HAAAAAAAAAAAN! Hey, Han. We love you.

Apparently "Dear God" in Mexican is "Hola, Señor". I lol'd

From now on I'm ordering my beers "Ice cold. Frosty, like a wedding dress."

"It ain't that hard to track you down, all I gotta do is follow the smell of skanks." - Michelle Rodriguez. Man, Letty likes to talk about skanks. Less animal noises this time around though


Oh damn. This is a hell of a scene https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fgf2c6…

Aaaaaand that's how Los Bandoleros ends. Blue balls. The bluest of balls. But I have to say, definitely worth the watch. Certainly one of the more quality films in the series. No action though, which is disappointing. Although at some point they had to slow down the arms race because there's only so much bigger you can go, right?
