Ranking the Fast & Furious Movies

I am VERY late to looking at this whole series. I never felt a strong emotional connection to the flicks so I kinda missed about half of them? I am finally catching up and enjoying them though. They are dumb but in a very earnest way that makes them very sweet and easy to watch.
