Excerpt: I'm just going to go ahead and commandeer this spot for a brief hat-tip to Paul Walker. I've always liked the guy. What he may have lacked in acting chops and technique, he made up for in earnestness. In his films, he always struck me as genuine and as obituaries spill out following his death, he apparently lived his off-screen life in similar fashion.
Excerpt: I doubt many people who saw the original The Fast and the Furious back in 2001 would’ve thought it’d still be going strong after some 13 years. There’s even a 7 th film in the works. To say that the original is a guilty pleasure is a bit of an understatement. The writing was hardly existent, the acting was nothing to write home about and the plot was paper-thin.
