Fast and the Furious 7
I’m doing these out of order I know, but I watched this one just a few weeks ago. I’ve watched all of them, and enjoyed them immensely. I know that some people hate them, because of the sheer amount of car chases, improbable escapes, and the physical impossibility of a number of the stunts. I love them for all those reasons, and more.
Sometimes I don’t want to watch a film that makes me think, or makes me want to cry, I just want to relax, shut my brain off for a bit, and watch very pretty people drive very fast cars, have intense fights, and occasionally don’t wear very much.
Some of the dialogue is predictable as is usual for this franchise, but this one, it made me cry. God that’s a sentence I never thought I would type about a Fast and the Furious movie. But the scenes towards the end, featuring Paul Walker, and the fact that See You Again was playing over the top, I was in floods, mostly obviously because of the circumstances of Paul Walker’s death.
It was a lovely tribute to the actor, and a touching way to retire his character, that was still true to how the character of Brian had been written.
I'm a thirty something woman who lives in the north of England. I have been a writer for as long as I can remember, creating stories both written and verbal since childhood. While studying at Edge Hill College, I got several poems published by a small publisher in the USA, and in Europe. I have been part of several writing groups, and done quite a few courses in a attempt to hone my writing skills further. I love reading different genres of fiction, knowing that the best way to develop my own writing, and my vocabulary is by exposing myself to the different ways that other people choose to describe things.
The most recent writing course that I've been part of, run by a published author, included a exercise in which we were challenged to read things that we would never usually even look at.
It inspired me to take up a challenge. Namely to attempt to read at least one book by every author which is stocked in my local library. I soon realised that I was being far too ambitious, especially given the fact that every library rotates their stock too often for me to keep track.
I've decided to instead attempt to read a book every day, starting with a author whose surname begins with A, and ending with a author whose surname begins with Z. It doesn't matter what the topic of the book is, or if it's fiction or non fiction, everything is useful for me at the minute.
