to tell the difference between shooting stars and satellites
I’m writing a modern version of Romeo and Juliet for english class and I’m making them dumb teenagers like they should be and I thought tumblr might appreciate some excerpts from my planning document
Oh yeah and romeo’s going to be sulking about rosaline friendzoning him at the start
I’m really trying to emphasise the ‘stupid kids’ thing here
this is perfect

I confirm this is all legit.
Reasons why you should watch the Fast & Furious movies!
It’s NOT just “fast cars” and “scantily-clad girls”
If you want more in-depth view of diversity and strong female character presence in this franchise, check out my two posts below:
And make sure to go watch the movies! GO!
And watch all the behind the scenes, watch how they make the movies, listen to the director/writer commentaries!
BONUS! Even the directors are diverse in race
- Rob Cohen - white - Fast 1
- John Singleton - african american - Fast 2
- Justin Lin - asian - Fast 3,4,5,6
- James Wan - asian - Fast 7
This franchise is proof that action films can just as easily give great representation and focus on character relationships!
Take this quote from Justin Lin, director of Fast 3,4,5,6
"We can go around the world and do these crazy stunts and scope and everything but ultimately it’s to service the journey home"
Or the quote from Chris Morgan, writer of Fast 3,4,5,6,7
"The overriding theme of this franchise has always been about family - when it really comes down to is the people around you, and it is the place that you call home"
And even despite the tragic passing of founding member Paul Walker, the cast and crew behind the franchise is determined to continue the films not only in his honor because of his passion for the franchise but also because they know how important representation and diversity is for future generations - as actor Tyrese Gibson puts it:
“There’s no way [Paul] would want the franchise to shut down because the movie is successful for a reason. If you all could just show up and look at somebody in the movie that you identify with then the global impact of the movie must continue on behalf of the franchise”
MY GENUINE AND DEEP LOVE FOR THE FAST AND FURIOUS FRANCHISE, LET ME SHOW YOU IT.
listen pals, fuck all that “gentle reminder you would have been beautiful a fuckton of years ago” noise. your physical appearance is absolutely irrelevant and meaningless in the eyes of the great skeleton lord, who only sees beauty in the bones hidden beneath your putrid flesh. stay frosty
