Rank the Films: Fast and Furious

As any regular reader of feeling fuzzier will know, lists are pretty darn nifty. We have a profound appreciation for straight-up lists. This is the thinking behind Rank the Films, a regular feature that pulls apart the pros and cons of a series of films, ranking them in order of bad to good. 

With Fast and Furious 6 hitting screens across Australia on June 6th, in this instalment of Rank the Films we decided to take a look at the rest of the franchise (from The Fast and the Furious [2001] to Fast Five [2011] and rank them in order from worst to best.

Kirk, Spock, Uhura and co. are back in action and this time their facing off against menacing villain John Harrison (Benedict Cumberbatch). This is Star Trek Into Darkness and it's life, but not as we know it.

The 10 Highest Grossing Films of 2013

Just some of the cinematic
heavy-weights hitting the silver screen
this year

As you may or may not have heard, a certain Marvel film hit cinema screens across the world in the last few weeks, kick-starting the 2013 blockbuster season. In just its first weekend, Iron Man 3 made nearly $200 million, effectively making back its entire budget in the space of just a few days. All this talk of money got me thinking; is Iron Man 3 set to make more than the gigantic $1.5 billion that The Avengers took this time last year?

So, with so many big releases set to hit the big screen across the next few months and beyond, I saw this as a great opportunity to hazard a guess at which 10 films would be making the most money in 2013.
