Movie Review: Need For Speed

 

Title: Need For Speed
Year of Release: 2014
Starring: Aaron Paul, Imogen Poots, Dominic Cooper, Rami Malek
Length: 2h 12 min

 

Favourite character: Julia


Crush: Finn
Least favourite character: Dino
Favourite line: Racers should race, cops should eat donuts

 

Mini-Review: For someone who knows nothing about racing, I really enjoyed this movie. This was a rewatch for me, but I’ve been wanting to rewatch it for a while, ever since seeing Dominic Cooper in Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again. For a movie based off a video game, it was well-written (in my opinion, but than that can mean nothing so…). I liked it, but it’s not in my favourites.

Description's last paragraph cracked me up
How to Be Successful without Hurting Men's Feelings - Sarah Cooper

"…And, when all else fails, a set of wearable mustaches is included to allow women to seem more man-like. This will cancel out any need to change their leadership style. In fact, it may even lead to a quick promotion!"

Ghost Hawk - Susan Cooper

Susan Cooper can do no wrong, and Miles Standish was a jerk.

 

This book wasn't much like my much-beloved Dark Is Rising sequence (seriously, go read that!), but that's a good thing.

 

Instead, she gives us a gripping historical fiction about a native american boy named Little Hawk who grew up just as the Plymouth Colony was being founded.

 

Not a spoiler: this book doesn't turn out like your typical Kindergarten Thanksgiving pageant.

 

Anyway, I loved this book. It was much more "Hawk" than "Ghost", in that I was expecting some sort of spooky story, and it wasn't spooky, just touching.

 

Hawk and his counterpart John Wakeley lead interesting lives. It's a mark of good fiction that I could totally imagine myself born into either characters' circumstance and making their choices.

 

It was interesting reading this book after Salman Rushdie's Satanic Verses. Obvs there is nothing in common, but Rushdie's main thesis was about watching groups or ideologies and how they behave when they are oppressed, and how they behave when they are majorities.

 

I remember being in Kindergarten or First Grade and having the teacher trying really hard to define the word "irony" and talk about how the Pilgrims, who were so persecuted in England (and Holland!) for their religion were so intolerant of others' beliefs. I don't think I understood it then. I sure do now. In fact this book kinda depressed me. Also, my favorite holiday is Thanksgiving, and I think having read this book is going to put a damper on my enthusiasm for celebrating future Thanksgivings.

 

Highly recommended.

A Dandelion for Tulip - R. Cooper

4.25

 

 

Re read Jan 19 in preparation for Clematis’ story.

 

I love both David and Tulip even when they are driving me nuts by going around and around. I understand why both are wary but I wish they would talk it out and listen to each other. David’s loneliness and belief that no one wants him is hard to read at times. I liked that David questioned people perceptions and he was pushing the boundaries in his studies. Seeing Bertie and Arthur again, Bertie was as hilarious as always.

I also loved the secondary characters and especially David’s relationship with Flor. I hope we get to see more of him in Clematis’ book.
