    there’s been so many words written about this movie that my review has been sitting, waiting to be written on my bedside table for days. I’m not sure where to start describing how much this movie means to me. just like Frances, my bedside table is a mess of the fragments of modern city living— old ticket stubs, a soda can, polaroid photos, and a dimmed light bulb. this film itself is just like those fragments; messy and bursting with…

    a couple weeks ago, I walked on a beach. the sky was gray, and the sand was virtually the same color, almost like they completely swirled together and merged as I walked farther and farther. it felt like the ending point of the universe. that feeling of wind against my body, the light splashes of waves, and the dull yet oddly vibrant sky, runs through me when watching this movie. it’s very slow at times, but feels like the only…

    Some of the best action in the franchise but god the characters are so lame in this one!! Paul Walker doesn’t know to act at all BUT he has a lot of charm and is very fun to watch.

But still, the cars went vroom vroom so I give movie like.

    but how was the cinematographer able to hold his breath for so long while filming this?
