    Life, Kanin Srimaneekulroj, Published on 14/04/2017

    » As the old saying goes, "too much of a good thing is a bad thing". Fast 8: Fate Of The Furious -- the latest entry to the long-running action/racing franchise -- is an apt example of this phrase, a film that tries so hard to outdo itself the results border on the satirical.
