Fast and Furious 6 Review

Hi Y’all

It has been a busy few weeks for us here so we haven’t been able to post as much as we’d like to. So over the next few days we’re gonna be making up for it, starting with this, our review of Fast and Furious 6! (which came in the post yesterday).

Now as a massive super car fan the ‘Fast’ films are right up my street, my sister however doesn’t quite agree. Me and my Dad have been attempting to get her into F1 for some time now and i think we’re just about starting to get through, with a little help from films such as these ūüėČ

My poor delusioned sister, I will never like F1. And in my opinion, the best thing about these films is the music. The music is kick ass.

Well then apparently that is my sister’s review of the film . . . the music is ‘kick-ass’.

The explosions are pretty cool too. I like when stuff blows up. Hence why I like Death Race. Lots of explosions and people dying in imaginative ways :). He he he . . . . 

Wow a very in depth analysis there . . . music and explosions. Fast and Furious 6 is so much more then that. Beautiful cars, amazing chase sequences, brilliant actors, and yes explosions . . . oh and a TANK!!!

You know, one of my friends boyfriend did the paint work on one of the cars in the film. And Vin Diesel does have a lovely deep voice.  And why are we listening to Doctor Who music while we write this? Not that I mind . . .

Wow¬†fascinating¬†bit of trivia there, would be better if you knew which car. But i do have to agree Vin Diesels voice is something to behold. Anyway what is your opinion of the film sister dearest? (and do you need a reason to listen to Doctor Who music?!? It’s awesome!)

It’s one of the show cars in the gathering bit. From the hour or so that I have seen of the film (Thanks for waiting for us to get back before starting -_-) it’s action packed and fast moving. The cars are pretty sweet and the music rocks. So all in all, I’d watch it again. Tokyo Drift is still my favorite of this series though. The music is epic in that one, and drifting is awesome.

Firstly if we had waited for you to get back you wouldn’t have been able to watch CSI:NY. Secondly is that the sound of you starting to like cars?? (‘sweet’???). Anyway I really enjoyed this film, one of the best in the series with plenty to build on in Fast 7. Like I said before beautiful looking and sounding cars, some amazing sequences through the middle of London and the runway scene was simply epic. Although I believe someone worked out that the runway would need to be about 34 miles long for that sequence to take place!! Oh and a British bad guy! Like so many films at the moment, i don’t know what it is with casting us brits as the baddies but we do do a fantastic job of it ūüėȬ†

Yeah, I’m gunna have to watch the whole film aren’t I? *Sigh* I’ll just power through.¬†

We could have a ‘Fast’ marathon!!!!!!!!!

Although would we watch them in the order they were released or chronologically? Because Tokyo Drift technically comes after Fast 6 chronologically.

Oh sweet lord no . . . . *Backs away* Bye everyone!! HD *Runs out of room*

Well thats one way of getting her to leave the room! But a ‘Fast’ marathon sounds pretty good to me, wonder if my Dad will watch them with me . . . . . . . .

BYE! CD

Disney Pixar

Hi Folks,

So it has been a few days since our last post and I have been trying to think about what I could blog about, and then I remembered a something I retweeted a little while ago about Pixar.

Copyright Pixar

Now I am a huge Disney/Pixar fan with I think the only two films I haven’t seen (yet)¬†being the most recent ones (Brave and Monsters University). Although I have grown up with these films and Toy Story was a massive part of my childhood I have always appreciated that the films are not actually made for children. They are made because the writers want to make them and want to make them for themselves. So they still appeal to the generation that has grown up with the films as well as the generation that was already¬†grown up when they came out and now the generation that is watching them all for the first time. This universal appeal is part of what makes Pixar films so popular.¬†You can¬†also¬†see evidence of the¬†dedicated team of people that put them together with tons of love and care within the quality of the films and the storylines they choose to portray. They are able to show both the childish entertainment that keeps the younger audience amused and the maturity to tackle adult issues. For example Toy Story 3 struck rather deep with me and my family in particular as it was released at a time when I was in exactly the same position as Andy, all grown up and about to leave home to go to university (or college). So not only did this film have all the fantastic elements that I remembered from the first two when I was a child but it also felt as though it had grown up with me and faced the same issues that I did, and this is the magic that makes Pixar films so fantastic.

Anyway this has rather gotten off the original point I was going to make! 

What I had discovered on Twitter was a link to a blog that had come up with The Grand Pixar Theory! Which describes how all of the films are intertwined and puts them into a timeline (which is not necessarily the order in which they were released). Now I have on occasion noticed similarities between some of the films, talking animals, inanimate objects coming to life etc, as well as the occasional direct reference of one film in another. But this theory encompasses everything and puts it all into the timeline of some sort of parallel universe, starting with Brave and (currently) ending with Monsters Inc.

I can honestly say it is one of the most amazing theories I have ever read and if this is actually what Pixar has planned then they must all be geniuses, equally if it is not true it is still a genius theory that has been constructed from these wonderful films.

Definitely recommended reading, even if you are not a huge Pixar fan!

The blog I originally read is here:-

But after just doing a bit of research I have discovered a website that has been put together explaining the theory in a shorter, simpler manner, with very nice graphics ;). This can be found here:-

Have fun reading and remember nothing has been confirmed it’s all just speculation for now!

Till next time
