Hours Paul Walker
The recent, tragic death of "Fast and Furious" franchise anchor Paul Walker has given us all time to take stock of the actor's dramatic strengths and weaknesses. He was, after all, a handsome fellow whose life was over way too fast and furiously, and he was capable of great range when he wanted to flex certain muscles that weren't just in his chest (you can read our rundown of his five best performances here). It's a shame, then, that "Hours," a nifty little independent thriller that Walker starred in, is coming out after his death. It is easily one of the most assured, nuanced performances the star had given; it is also one of his last.

But his passing does leave a question mark hovering over one of the biggest franchises in the world right now, and key part of Universal's slate.
