    Correct me if I'm wrong but Success=Good

    You contradicted yourself. If you're successful at something, then you must be good at it.

    Try again next time!
    I did not contradict myself, and yes you are wrong...
    Example : George W. Bush became president of the United States ... pretty successful right?
    George W. Bush was quite possibly the worst president to ever hold that position ...
    So with George W. Bush Success = Bad!

    No, what you said is that he was not good at what he did.
    If your job was acting and you weren't very good at it, then I guess that makes you a bad actor. Right you are Sean very astute.

    You'd call George W. Bush a successful president?

    You just completely supported my reply to you...COMPLETELY. Look at all those links you went and found...lots of personal opinions from lots of people! And even if you posted 10,000 links similar to those, nothing changes the fact that it still reflects a personal opinion, and does not constitute a factual statement whatsoever. And yet, you continue to reflect it as such? Why is that?

    You said he wasn't good at what he did...which was act. I don't expect you to think he's a great actor, I don't even think he was...but he was excellent at what he did in the same way others LIKE him were excellent at it throughout history. Justin Bieber (since you mentioned him first) is not a good singer in my opinion...but his showmanship and appeal to adolescent females is unquestionable...does it make him a great singer? Not at all, but he's excellent at what he does.

    I think you get my point. Perhaps in the future if you want to dump on someone in their memorial thread, you could use the tiniest amount of tact and at the very least, express your thoughts as your own opinion instead of the factual implication you came across with initially. Or don't...and continue the arguments and what not...really doesn't matter when you're the one in the hole.

    If your job is acting and you aren't very good at it...you don't get cast in films, CONSISTENTLY, where the enormity of success that is found is almost unequaled by other "B-list" actors (I'd even argue C-list). He was successful because he represented a personality and character that people enjoyed watching in the movies he was in...I made my comparisons earlier, so you can refer back to some of the silver screen legends that followed a similar path to success.

    If you simply wanted to point out that YOU felt he was a bad actor...why didn't you just say so in your first post? It'd be like me saying that McDonalds isn't good at what they do because I don't personally care for their food. Perhaps you didn't mean to word it the way you did initially...that's fine, but you still did it, and people retorted to such. Don't blame us because you made a mistake.

    Please note that your opinions of Mr. Walker is not a problem, however, it can be considered in poor taste to speak ill of someone who has just passed away. That's all.
    This.

    You bite your tongue. I don't particularly care for some of the famous people who have died over the course of the past two years, but regardless of who it was, that person was still a human being who had people that loved and cared for him or her. That's what matters.

    Two human lives were lost in what is one of the most inhumane ways possible. Children have to go on for the rest of their lives without a parent. Parents have to bury their sons. A wife and girlfriend have to bury their husband and boyfriend.

    Then they all have to pick up the pieces and move on and it sucks. I've been there. In many ways, I'm still there. You never get over grief of losing a parent no matter how they died.

    I think you get my point. Perhaps in the future if you want to dump on someone in their memorial thread, you could use the tiniest amount of tact and at the very least, express your thoughts as your own opinion instead of the factual implication you came across with initially.

    Or he could have just shut up. It's bad tact to speak ill of the dead.

    No one said he had to like Paul or Roger but jesh, use some common sense and remember that these two were men with families.

    You know what's really a shame? The world lost a person who actually put some effort into helping others...BOTH of the gentlemen who passed that day were heavily into the non-profit Reach Out Worldwide. I mean putting aside an actor who entertained us, or a race car driver who entertained fans...both of these men were also charitable heavy weights, and the world truly lost some humanity with the deaths of both of them.

    Take a look at the charity...It's actually pretty awesome, especially given the kinds of supporters it draws in. You've got people who already risk their lives as a CAREER (first responders of all types) who contribute time and money to this cause.

    I doubt he'd know common sense and tact if it walked up and pucked him in the eye.

    And Paul had recently completed EMT training and wanted to become licensed as a first responder. Finding out more about the things he did in his own time to help others, it's amazing.

    The world didn't lose some actor. They lost a remarkable human being who happened to be an actor and used his fame to help others instead of becoming a problem child public spectacle.

    Amen brother! He was a true humanitarian. Acting wasn't his 1st love, helping others and making the World a better place for those who follow us was his.

    Has anyone mentioned the story of the Iraq war veteran? The soldier was home on furlough and about to ship back out. Paul bought a $10K engagement ring for the soldier's fiancee because the soldier couldn't afford one and he wanted his to be fiancee to have one before he went back to Iraq.

    I also seem to remember several PSAs he and Vin Diesel did about street racing dangers after the first F&F movie came out. I think there are a couple of them on the DVD but I haven't watched the DVD in so long, I can't remember.

    Pretty sure his agent wouldn't announce it if he was alive and universal where they were filming wouldn't be delayed
    Like I said. I heard rumors, but if his agent confirmed it, then I guess it's true. Or he's just alive on an island with 2pac, Michael Jackson, and Amy Winehouse.

    I actually have seen all of the ones with the original cast in the theatre. They are my guilty pleasure. Not sure why but I like em. And it has nothing to do with PW dying. And it's still sad a 40 year old man is dead and his daughter lost her dad. What can I say, I have am eclectic taste in movies.

    Some attitudes in this thread make me cringe.

    You act as though the F&F franchise wasn't popular prior to Paul Walker's passing. It's grossed over 2 billion dollars world wide. More than the "Alien" film franchise. More than the American Pie franchise. More than the Die Hard franchise. More than the Indiana Jones franchise. More than the Matrix franchise. I could go on and on and on. Wether you like them or not, the movies have been wildly popular... and rank right up there with the real juggernaut franchises like Star Wars and Star Trek, The Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, Batman, James Bond, and the Pirates of the Caribbean.

    Some make me want to vomit as well. Two human beings are dead. Children lost their fathers. Families are broken up. Lives are shattered.

    Yes. I know what that's like and it sucks just the same whether your father was a famous actor who died in a car crash or a railroad engineer who died from complications due to cancer.

    And I tried the Matrix franchise. I hated them. Aliens was okay, but I got bored with it. F&F franchise is one of a handful of franchises I like and actually follow.

    Me and my brother are members at a local private race track called Atlanta Motorsports Park (he's also a corner marshall for racing events there) and this past weekend they had a Paul Walker Memorial Cruise to raise money for his charity and also had the Toys for Tots toy drive there to pull double duty. It was an awesome turn out, and we snagged some pics from their feed (we were in the cruise and they don't allow cell phones on the track itself, so no pics from me unfortunately!)
