  • Furious 7

    Furious 7 2015

    ★★★ Watched 09 May, 2015 3

    Not sure how to appraise this because it did exactly what it set out to do and I had fun throughout but also felt like taking a nap during any of the "plot" stuff. The ridiculous hospital opening with Statham, any antics carried about by The Rock, and that utterly fucking bonkers wrench fight are the clear highlights.

However, there's something none of…

    "I just wanna feel that we both wanna, like, be in love. I want it so...bad."

    Have you ever felt like you're drifting aimlessly through life? Have you ever longed for someone to love, a longing that runs so deep you can hardly contain your emotions when you're alone in your bed in the middle of the night? Have you ever felt like everyone's abandoned you? Have you ever felt like none of it means anything? Have you ever felt…
