On Friday’s episode of weekly podcast Meet the Movie Press, Mashable entertainment editor Josh Dickey told his old pal Jeff Sneider that he had finally come up with a solution for his conflicted feelings about how to cover Furious 7. He would write two, separate standalone reviews: one good, one bad.
Those items have now been posted, without cross-link winks. Beyond readers who see tweets like the one below, or pay close attention to permalinks, there is no real threat to the integrity of Dickey’s pseudo-scientific experiment.
Post-Furious 7 preview screening, Dickey realized there was no point in simply panning the latest dashboard bro’ installment. Thanks to the franchise’s built-in appeal, each film’s ever-earlier “summer movie” release date and the stamp of the late Paul Walker, this thing is going to gargantuan. Domestically, internationally, Web-tastically.
So instead, Dickey will keep a close eye on each side of his Dr. Jaguar and Mr. Honda take, to note which one gets more social media action, comments and so on.
