Today we are going to be talking about the genre of movies that I affectionately like to call “The Big Dumb Action Movie,” with the latest installment of The Fast and the Furious franchise, Furious 7.
And, hopefully, we’re going to be looking at Furious 7 in a way that's valuable not only if you’re a big action movie writer, but also if you are a writer in any other genre: if you are writing a thriller, if you are writing a comedy, if you are writing a drama, if you are writing an independent film or even if you are writing an art film.
So what’s the thing that ties all these different kinds of movies together? And what does all this have to do with "Feeding The Genre Monster?" Find out by listening to my podcast about exactly that.
