The hubs and I grew up watching the Fast and Furious movies (and I looooved She's All That), so you can imagine how heartbreaking it was for us when Paul Walker passed away in 2013. The Fast and the Furious came out when we were in middle school and at the time, the group I hung out with were all guys who were really into cars but couldn't actually drive. The movie was ultra cheesy, yes, but over the years that's what made the franchise so great and so quotable. Each movie, the plot would only get crazier and they would bring in some really ridiculous characters. Except for 2 Fast 2 Furious. That's the movie we do not speak of.
I feel like a lot of people don't really get it and I got a lot of looks when people asked how my weekend went earlier this week and I was raving about how amazing Furious 7 is. I didn't even get to tell them that we drove by the Toretto house and Toretto's market on Sunday. I know Furious 7 is not exactly Oscars material, but it was so enjoyable and these movies will always hold a special place in my heart.
I'm not sobbing uncontrollably, I just got some dust in my eyes...
If you haven't seen the new movie yet, bring tissues, because the theater napkins are noisy and sandpaper-y.
