Over Sharing on Social Media Really Needs to Stop – Furious 7 Movie

2 days ago when I was observing my News feeds and amongst other social media websites, something really began to bother me in so many ways. One that hit close to home and one that I just cannot believe. I know that the social media has boomed and has become one of the most biggest information hubs of the world, and I never knew how some people can just post anything without thinking until a couple of days ago. I just cannot believe it. It is too much. I mean enough is enough. This really pushed my buttons this time. I cannot endure that disrespectful acts from people. Just because a film just came into theaters it does not mean that you have to right away ruin it for people, and post every single darn thing. It is not cool at all.

With all due respect of the Late Paul Walker and his memory who died in 2013, November..  To all those who were close to him, his loved ones, his Fast family, the fans, I find it very disrespectful and wrong of people who are spoiling, over sharing the movie and taking parts of the movie and putting it out there, spending all that time with creating gif’s, memes, and video posts already on social media sites. This is not good to do, especially when there are such highly devoted Fans of the Furious 7 family and dishonoring Paul’s memory that way. I see people already spoiling the ending and everything and showcasing it to the world to see. It is not fair. People really need to stop that. I do not find it to be amusing at all.

Film Makers, Actors, Actresses, and everyone involved in movies work so hard, the production is hard work, very hard. Some people do not realize how much work, time, tons of money and effort is involved in making these films shine, and for them to make to our local movie theaters, then we have people who copy and use their smart phones or whatever device, to record the movie, to blab it out for everybody else is just so insensitive and down right disgraceful to those people involved in that production and directing.

There is no excuse in the book. It is never right to copy, re-produce something without written consent and permission from the intellectual owner/s of that production or whatever the case maybe. Not just in movies, but in our general life. If something is not yours and if you want it, ask for it, get written permission, do whatever you can to get things in writing before sharing somebody elses work. It is the right thing to do.

Just because it is social media, it does not mean that we have to post everything and anything we hear about, see, and do. Some things are meant to be private.

Furious 7 has not even been a week yet since the April 3rd, 2015 release and I keep seeing all these videos of the movie, and most importantly the best highlights, especially the ending part. I mean seriously? Is this a way some people want to honor and Respect Paul Walker and his cast-mates and film makers?

I saw it on Sunday April 5th, 2015 and I have not given anything away, as should be, but people do not think, people blab everything and it is not very good. Go see it in the theaters or wait to buy the movie, but don’t spoil and ruin it for everyone else who has not seen it yet. I just find that to be really terrible and thoughtless.

So enough is enough… Over Sharing needs to stop. It is really ridiculous having to spoil something for people whom have been looking forward to seeing the movie Furious 7. Instead of keeping people in suspense, and their eagerness to go to the movie theaters or the anticipation of seeing it on DVD in your own homes when the movie comes out. It ruins the fun, it ruins the curiosity. Thanks for understanding my view-point, because it is just craziness.

 

RIP Paul Walker — I Love you so much.

Furious 7 – One Last Ride – For Paul Walker – In Theater’s Now

On Friday April 3rd, 2015, Furious 7 made its premiere and movie debut in theaters where in about 3-4 days now, it made over 384 Million dollars in the Box office and more. Just over half way through the movie, an unfortunate loss happened to the Fast family, loved ones and fans all across the world, when Paul Walker died of a single vehicle crash where he was a passenger in Los Angeles on November 30, 2013, which put a strain and scar on everyone as well as a terrible shock, which the news spread within seconds, and that feeling will never go away. The production of the movie came to an abrupt halt and got post-poned until the directors and film maker of the movie decided how they will re-write and complete the movie. Paul’s brothers Cody and Caleb completed the rest of the role of Brian O’Connor.

The movie was absolutely incredibly, tastefully and wonderfully done. There was so much action. The Late Paul Walker as well as Jason Statham, Kurt Russell, Vin Diesel, Tyrese Gibson, Ludacris, Dwayne Johnson, Michelle Rodriguez, Elsa Pataky, Jordana Brewster and more were actors of the movie. They are all so carefully and excellent chosen actors for Furious 7 and the movie series. I love you all very much.

When I watched it on Sunday April 5th in the evening, the whole theatre was packed. There was not an empty seat. They had the movie playing in different auditoriums because they could not keep up and each theatre was packed. I said to myself, to honor Paul’s memory, I need to go watch it as soon as possible. I could not wait until next week, when I initially had planned to see it. I went to go watch it with friends. I had this feeling and I knew I would be a total emotionally wreck I tell you, I could not stop balling my eyes out. You could hear sniffles and cries throughout the whole theatre as was myself. So many tears were flowing down my cheeks, and the ending of the movie was a beautiful tribute to Paul Walker. Paul definitely put a huge and everlasting impact on everyone. I will not be spoiling it for anybody.

I feel that I want to begin watching Fast and Furious from the beginning and make it like a marathon and watch One Last Ride – Furious 7 once again.

I had written this on Tyrese Gibson’s Facebook page on one of his photos and I said “you guys have no idea how much you all mean to me. I love you guys so much. I loved Furious 7 so much, and I want to go and see it again. It was a great movie and the ending and tribute to our Lovely Paul, was incredible and tastefully completed. I ADORE YOU GUYS SO MUCH…. My dream is to meet you all and tell you all personally how much of a great impact you all have put on me and my life. I have followed you guys since the beginning and will forever do so. I support you all 100%. RIP Paul, it will not be the same without you, but as I watch these movies, I will forever see his smile and beautiful soul shine.

Paul, keep smiling in the heavens. Your smile is contagious and beautiful. He made me feel like I knew him personally, he made me feel like he was a good friend of mine, he made me feel like I was close to him. fly your angel wings, Race and rest in paradise PW. We all love you so much. God Rest your soul. With Respect and love, your forever and one of your biggest fans, supporter  Talin Orfali

 

Furious 7 – Paul Walker’s Last Film – Going to be in Tears

Vin Diesel names his baby girl Pauline after Paul Walker – That is so sweet. I got so emotional today and I still am.

Seeing Fast and Furious 7 is going to make me ball my eyes out. I probably won’t even be able to pay attention to the movie. Paul Walker was my all time favourite actor since before the FastFurious movies came out. I felt like I knew him personally and the way he acted toward his family, friends and fans as well as his cast mates was something that was so incredible. Paul will live through me and my heart forever. I always wanted to meet him and never got the chance to. I am still heart broken when I heard of his death. I just did not want to believe. I still don’t believe it, no matter how many times I see the photos, the footage, the news everywhere and articles too.

When I first heard of his death, I never made it a big deal, I said these things happen all the time when a hoax happens or rumors start floating around, then when I saw reports from ABC, CNN, NBC, CTV, right on my facebook news feed, I said Oh my goodness, it is real, then I saw the footage of the burned Porsche and my heart just stopped, I was in utter shock as I had been checking out Facebook on my phone, I kind of wish I didn’t, but I was waiting for a message, but however I remember I was out at a Christmas party just sitting down and enjoying the people and the music at the end of November, 2013 and suddenly my fun and everything just stopped right there, and plus I remember I had a really bad knee after spraining/dislocating it just 10 days before, that is why I was just sitting down and enjoying, so on top of that, I was just crying my eyes out. I wanted to go home.

I was not in the mood after. I don’t know that is how close I felt with Paul Walker. He was truly a beautiful person who cared about everybody and he was such a sweet and lovely soul. God rest your soul Paul. It was very untimely and something your loved ones and fans were not prepared of hearing that terrible news. You were an angel on earth and you have gained and earned your wings in heaven. I love you Paul and I always will.

I will watch your last movie in memory of you, but I can guarantee that I will be crying. Thanks for the memories and the beautiful name and legacy you left behind.

2015 is here! Welcome!

Hello everyone, now that 2014 is behind us, hope everyone had a pleasant, fun and great night when ringing in 2015. Here are to new beginnings this year. I can’t believe it is the second day already. Time is already flying by. before you know it, we will be putting up our Christmas/Holiday decorations once again. I remember the days when I always wanted to go out for new years and celebrate outdoors or at a banquet hall full of people, but nowadays, I just want to spend a quiet, fun and relaxing time at home with my loved ones with good food, snacks, a few drinks, and unwinding during the holidays is all that is important. I know its fun to get dressed up and to go to parties and everything, but I just don’t feel it anymore. I’d rather be at home all cozy and warm and just relaxing.

I don’t know if you feel the same way as well. To me, new years is just another day with another year added. We should be grateful for the days we have, for the years we are on the planet, and we should be grateful for all the blessings and everything we have. That is the most important thing that people really should focus on. Some people are so into vanity, materialism, and all that stuff, however the true meaning of the holidays and as well as everyday is to count our blessings and be thankful. There are so many unfortunate things happening in our world today, and we should always look at the bigger picture as things can be worse.

Always think positive, look at life in an optimistic way, be happy, live your life. Health, happiness, and positivity is the most important things in life. everything else is secondary. As 2015 is now here, I wish everyone a blessed year ahead and beyond. Lets create more memories, good times, motivate each other, encourage each other, have each others back, and share our stories with one another.

Many blessings and good times to everyone. Best wishes to all!

Cheers to 2015!

The Late Paul Walkers Movie — Vehicle 19

Last night I was watching a Paul Walker movie named “Vehicle 19″ and the whole movie I was so emotional looking at him, thinking to myself that we will never see him in future films again and we will never see him do more humanitarian work such as what he was doing for the victims of the Typhoon in the Philippines with The Reach Out World Wide Organization. His death has broken my heart into millions of pieces. I cannot even comprehend how his family and friends are dealing with his untimely death, the same goes for his friend who died with him in the Red Porsche in Los Angeles. When I was watching Vehicle 19 last night. There were so many similarities from the movie which really got to me even more and it was freaking me out that . Here are some of the similarities I found from the movie that were in relative as to how he died in real life. Unfortunately:

1 — He was in the car for the whole movie
2 — He had the car spray painted with the colour “RED” and He died in the Colour Red with the Porsche..
3 — The week that Paul Walker and Nelson Mandela died, the movie was filmed in South Africa in Johannesburg and toward the end of the movie there was a picture of Nelson Mandela on a building.
4 — The cars in South Africa drive on the opposite side and the steering wheel was on the right side of the car, but in the Porsche he was a passenger so he was sitting on the right side.

As I was watching this movie, It freaked me out at the end to see all the similarities and It just broke my heart to realize those things. What a waste of talent. I have not stopped thinking about this since I heard it happen. Yesterday they laid Paul Walker to rest. It has hit me really hard. My Condolences to his Friend also. 2 young men who had so much life to live ahead of them, and lives were cut short because of losing control due to speed. I do not know what logic and what sense there is for the thrill of driving fast, speeding and going for a joy ride brings. A vehicle is a weapon and if not used and driven carefully, it can do a lot of harm, it can injure, it can kill, it can do anything. In the end were responsible for our actions behind the wheel. Driving is a serious thing and it is not a right, its privilege. Once we get behind the wheel of a vehicle, truck or whatever is motorized, were not only responsible for ourselves, our passengers, but were responsible for others lives on the road as well. Senseless deaths can be prevented but some people choose to do wrong and play with other peoples lives and well being. So many people’s lives have been lost, so many families have changed forever and lives will never be the same without them  . God give their and all families that have gone through these terrible and terrifying moments and also friends strength at this difficult time.

Ways that We Can End The Cycle of Bullying

Since I was a child up until High School, I was emotionally and mentally bullied and I know what it is like to be hurt so badly, being put down, always making fun of me because I was different then everyone else and it was the most toughest times of my life. I didn’t have friends, I didn’t have what others had when they were with each other in groups when I felt left out and being an outcast 99.9% of the time. They were moments that I will never forget, no matter if I have moved on or not. It sticks with you, however I have learned to live past it and began doing positive things in life, to move forward and to stop dwelling on the past. I have been taking a lot of new approaches to this matter and I am going to begin my own social group where people come together from all walks of life and make new friends, interact with others and just figure things out, hear other peoples perspectives on social issues.

There is always a solution and some form of ways to end this terrible cycle going on. Bullying is a very serious problem and it does need to be rectified as soon as possible. It is enough of torment, disgusting behavior that needs to be addressed quickly before it escalates even further.

Now here are ways that we can all come forward to end bullying:

– Creating small, intimate, or large social groups amongst you’re community for those who want to make friends and gather together to create a lovely group of individuals who can relate to one another, creating activities, discussing issues, doing fun, interactive, communication, group work.

– In this modern day society the importance of making it a mandatory course/subject that must be taken and taught in schools and institutions, also the workforce on the prevention of bullying, cyber bullying, social media safety, communications course which should teach students/workers what not to do, what not to say to their fellow peers/colleagues.

– Teachers, Parents, Guardians, School Guidance Staff, School Principals, and as well as outside of school grounds must always be involved in securing our schools, Implementing tougher penalties, more 0 Tolerance in Schools and also the workforce of any type of bullying that should not be allowed, suspension and expulsion.

– tell a person you trust about your feelings, what you are going through and never keep it inside you. Always tell someone you can confide into. Do not wait long to tell someone. In fact tell someone right away.

– Advocate and be proactive in this issue, write to your local papers, attend meetings, start a blog, use social media as a powerful tool to send messages, hashtags globally and come up with your own ways to prevent bullying

– Read up on inspirational quotes, save them on your computer, print them out and scatter positive, happy quotes where you can see them easily, and begin the journey to a happy road ahead.

– Always surround yourself with positivity, good people, do happy things for yourself, and stay away from negativity.

We are on the right road and path to make bullying history, and to look forward to a positive, happy and bright tomorrow. So start today, you can make a difference in someone’s life. No matter how old they are. Bullying has no age as it happens to kids, teens, young adults, youth, adults, and the elderly. Lets end this cycle now.

— If you have more ways to prevent bullying, write them below in the comments section. Thank you.
