Update: Fast & Furious 6

I can't even begin to tell you how perfectly rounded this screenplay is: from the opening scenes to the finishing, the film just doesn't leave anything out. If you are serious about film criticism and interpretation, this would be a great film to practice on because all the tools and techniques are classic, that's why they work so well. And the film wants us to know it's doing it because the dumbest character in the film, Roman, points it out to us so we don't miss it! There are so many other films being referenced in F & F 6, I literally couldn't keep track of them all, so stay alert!
If you haven't been to the theater this month, I really feel sorry for you. If someone asked me, "What should I go see, Iron Man 3, Star Trek Into Darkness or Fast and Furious 6?" I wouldn't be able to answer them. I went to the theater tonight to see Now You See Me, which you know I have been really looking forward to, and I got the times mixed up, so saw Fast and Furious 6; it was awesome. Fabulous film. If someone asked me to teach a class on screenwriting, F & F 6 is the example I would use. I am sorry I haven't posted this week, I had several posts all nearly done, but none of them actually done,.... it's a common story in my life; sorry. One does not need to have seen any other of the Fast and Furious films to see this one, but it would certainly help; I have seen a couple of them, but I have not seen Tokyo Drift and I feel like I am missing out on something because of that, but don't let that stop you from seeing it. You know I despise Obama and his administration, however, when there are difficult times, that is when art is at its greatest, because that is when art's mission is most important, and Hollywood is not disappointing us.
