Fast & Furious: Hobbs & Shaw

Weirdly, it was somehow better than expected and also worse than expected. I was not a fan of the cyborg Idris, nor his Transformers motorbike. This isn’t a sci-fi series, and I know they sometimes push the boundaries of physics but at least it’s for the most part based in reality. This was just rubbish.

Good film, this one. I was expecting good things, what with the Rock teaming up with Stephen Merchant but it delivered. I had heard them discussing it on various promotional opportunities and they often said that you didn’t need to know anything about wrestling to enjoy the film, which I think is true and I was grateful for.

The power of The Rock

I am confident that someday in the future The Rock, who was once a professional wrestler, will run for president of the United States, and I think that he will win. I have seen with my own eyes the power of The Rock. The Rock is a uniter, not a divider. When the BOP showed Walking Tall, the turnout for every screening all weekend long was unprecedented. The Rock has an effect on women that transcends divisions of race, age, cultural background – even social class, the most impenetrable barrier in America.

Rocking around the clock

It’s not every day you open up the app store on your phone to discover that Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson has released an alarm clock app to help you wake up and set your goals. Turns out that was a really good day. The Rock Clock does exactly what it says on the tin, it’s an alarm clock which pushes you to reach a specific goal (ie. wake up early, or write that screenplay), and the alarm sounds feature the Rock’s beautiful voice giving encouragement.
