Paul Walker was a real life Brian O’Connor. His Taste in cars is exactly what mine would be if i had that kind of money to spend on a personal car collection. Not much flash, no big rims or loud sound systems, just fast cars and personal favorites. Gotta love his collection of Foxbody Mustangs; the man knew what he liked, and what he liked was Saleen Mustangs. My favorite car of the Collection? The Ford Bronco.
Just when I thought I was done quietly sobbing to myself after seeing ‘Furious 7’, Wiz comes over with this haymaker of a music video and knocks me on my ass like a ton of pickles. Charlie Puth, i’m not sure who you are, but I’m putting this sadness you too! This song brings on an inferno of sadness that only a 7 movie saga with three best friends (Me, Vin, and Paul) could fuel. No matter how many more movies this franchise will make (I hope it’s 100) this will always be the definitive movie in the collection. It had “the family” all together for the last time and showed how much all the actors cared about each other in the real world, and not just on a movie set. Vin Diesel calls Paul “his brother” and I can truly believe that. That’s what makes with video truly heartbreaking. Get a fresh box a kleenex, folks.
The recently released Furious 7 isn’t just the most ridiculous entry in the fourteen-year-old Fast and Furious franchise — it’s also become by far the biggest opening weekend earner in the entire series. This weekend saw Furious 7take $384 million worldwide, with $143.6 million of that coming from the domestic audience. That makes it not only the biggest April opening weekend of all time…
To put that in perspective, that’s more than every single movie in the Twilight saga, more than Sony’s first Spider-Man movie, and far more than every single Star Warsmovie got on their first weekends. Furious 7‘s domestic launch was the biggest since 2013’s The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, the sixth biggest movie launch in US history, which raked in $158 million on its first weekend. – The Verge
Did you really think Furious 7 was going to do anything other than blow the roof off the box office? The shock isn’t in the fact that they did what they did, but that they deserved it. I saw Furious 7 last Thursday in IMAX and I haven’t stopped thinking about it since. You want Vin Diesel to slug it out with Jason Statham? You got it. You want The Rock to shoot a predator drone clean out of the sky with his bare hands? You got that. You want Vin and Paul to jump a 4 million-dollar supercar between two of the tallest buildings in the world? You got that too. Mix in some hacking, fast cars, tuxedos, mountains, white tank tops, Kurt Russel, and all the Corona you can drink and you’ve got Furious 7.
PS. Not to mention the last 5 minutes is the saddest i’ve been in a movie theater since “Armageddon”
Paul Walker, my sweet prince…..Ok, this movie looks amazing. If you don’t like Fast and Furious movies the new have a problem. What could someone possible hate about this? Fast cars, fighting, and The Rock?! Sounds like an Oscar to me.
PS – I don’t know how this gang went from street racing and beating up people to working for the government and killing people with large guns and tanks, but I like it. Talk about character arcs.
