Have you heard? Fast & Furious 7 is making the big bucks in the box office! It's the most popular movie in the past couple of weeks and, based on our humble assessment, it's a definite must-watch, even if you're not a fan of things that go vroom.
FF7 is the culmination of the Fast & Furious movies, and is proving to be a great closing salvo to a franchise that has been captivating both grease monkeys and casual drivers since 2001. If you're going to ask us though, we believe the franchise's success is rooted on how awesome the first movie, The Fast and the Furious, was. (You wouldn't waste your time making sequels if it wasn't, right?)
And yes, we'll definitely watch it again for old time's sake.

But we're feeling a tad lazy about scouring our collection of dusty old, totally non-pirated DVDs so maybe this will suffice (for now): An 8-bit version of The Fast and the Furious! Made by CineFix (the same guys behind the 8-bit Avengers video), it retells the story of the movie in old school glory the batang '90s in us approves of.
To give you an idea, here are a few GIF-fied scenes:
Epic fist fights
Epic car races
Epic car chases
More epic car races
Epic plot twists
And most important of all, epic car customizations
We know you want it so, here's the whole video:
