Fate of the Furious - F. Gary Gray - What the actual fuck? How is this franchise still something I enjoy? When did it become something I enjoy? What else compare to it? Brilliantly dumb, but shot and edited and just gone the fuck for on a level beyond reproach. Parody-proof, post-faux-macho-posturing-ouroboros for our times. Count me in for number nine.
Mindhunter season 1 - David Fincher - I tend to think of Fincher as a craftsman more than an auteur - that is a supremely talented professional with the chops to dress and cut his pictures with crisp and arresting visuals and rhythms, but whose choice of project makes all the difference in whether or not I'll be tuning in. That said, his fascination with killers and sociopaths has made up the bulk of his best products from the high pulp of Se7en to the procedural punch miracle that is Zodiac. Serial killers are not generally something I'm interested in, but I was on board for this angle on the subject matter and holy shit, Cameron Britton's turn as Ed Kemper is Emmy-worthy.
