Disclaimer: I’m a fan of the entire Fast and the Furious series.  Every single one.  Even Tokyo Drift.  This may seem odd since I’m not a car guy nor am I into racing in any way, but in terms of mindless entertainment it’s hard to beat this franchise.  It took me far too long to see the seventh installment, but now that I have I’m prepared to give you seven reasons why this movie is beyond awesome.  You can see them all  after the break.

Geek Bets Update: Watson Owes Ryan A Coffee For Nailing Furious 7 RT Score

"Your only hope for survival is to stick this landing like Ryan did in predicting the over/under line for this movie.  Good luck."
“Your only hope for survival is to stick this landing like Ryan did in predicting the over/under line for this movie. Good luck.”

Loyal listeners of the Gabbing Geek podcast will recall back in episode 30: Future Directions, Ryan devised a game for Watson to predict an over/under Rotten Tomatoes score for three upcoming releases.  To make things interesting, they even made a coffee bet for each of the three movies and recorded them on the Geek Bets page.  Since Rotten Tomato scores can change over time as more reviews come in, Watson and Ryan agreed to count the score at 8am the Monday following the release.

The first movie is in and oh boy did Ryan nail it.  The line was set at 82% and Watson called the under.  The number as of Monday morning at 8am: 83%.  Winner: Ryan.

(Watson:  He has mentioned his accuracy several times in the last 24 hours…)
