Embarrassing... Fast and the Furious Trilogy...

Okay - I'm a little embarrassed to admit this, but I'm thinking about picking this up for Blue Ray. The problem is, I like the first one a lot (and have it on DVD) but didn't like the second one too much. At least there was more than one good car in it, opposed to the one in the first. I haven't seen the third one, and it seems like the reviews are quite the mixed bag. I'm on the fence... I didn't like the second one so much because there just seemed to be too much CGI and it just seemed too campy, to me. It sounds like the third one may be similar, in the way of CGI, and it doesn't sound like the cast is much good either.

Please send me your opinions on whether-or-not to get this trilogy. I'm thinking I might just wait to see if the first movie will be available separately in the future. It looks like I'm going to really like the fourth movie, so I'm looking forward to that and would rather wait for the first movie to come out separately and get the fourth (if I do indeed like it) rather than spend $60 on the trilogy for only one good movie out of the bunch.

What do ya'll think? Did you like Tokyo Drift and how would you liken it to the first and second movies?

Thanks

I have all three. I think they are good. But you got to realize that all of them are movies and not realistic. For good entertainment and good looking cars i liked them. I cant wait to see the new one in two weeks.

Fast and the Furious Tokyo drift was dumb, it made no sense, and it wasnt like the other 2.

First one was good. I liked it and it's the only one of the three I would buy.

The second was ok but not worth buying imo. Just rent it.

The third was trash. It was on TV a couple days ago and it's not even worth the $1 to rent.

Based on the previews, the forth will be just as good or even better then the first one. Can't wait to see it.

60 dollars for the fast and the furious trilogy!!!:confused006 8:


Pass!

I would wait for the fourth to come out and I am sure it will be cheaper to either 1, buy the whole set, or 2, buy each one individually...I like the series, as long as you don't focus on the cars too much, and just watch the storyline. They are good movies in my opinion. But considering three of them are old, I wouldn't pay 40 for the trilogy unless it had the new movie in it as well.

My assessment was about the same as yours. I haven't seen the third one yet but was just hoping for some more opinions. I'm not trying to waste money. I gotta' save for my car!!!

What's her name.... Vanessa Minillo? I was just praying she could finish her lines. It seemed like just talking required so much mental effort on her part. Give me Michelle Rodriguez any day of the week.

I was suprised my wife like the first one (not the second and we haven't seen the third). She actually wants to see it on our anniversary; there must not be anything else out there that's good, LOL!

I like em all, I agree the 2cd is the weekest, but I still liked it. Of course I use to own a Evo. I am a big Paul Walker fan, so I am looking forward to the 4th one. I like Tokyo Drift alot, I have it on HDDVD ( I know I got that one wrong lol ) and I think it is really good eye candy. Car movies are always cool IMO, there isn't many out there, so I guess it doesn't suffer by comparison. I would get em, I already did. BTW that maro in the 2cd one is sweet!

If the whole movie wasn't boring enough,

while the third movie was complete rubbish (as was the entire series so far), the cars and colors and action looks good on Blu Ray... the cinematography was excellent and the Blu Ray format makes for some good definition during the racing scenes.

so far, the best cars were in the second one, the best story line was in the first one and the best cinematography was in the 3rd one... if I was going to do it, I'd wait for the 4th one to come out on Blu Ray and see if they offer a full set.

Like how a big ole' HEMI can do a wheel stand without doing a burnout on the street?... Or how that car has like ten gears (I mean it's like they show Turetto shift like ten times)?

WOW... I admit I bought it yesterday, but told the wifey I was going to return it (hoping she'd let it go). However, after your spoiler, I might return it and wait after all, LOL. YIKES

I've read the Blue Ray was pretty good, definition-wise. That's kinda' what pulled me in. However, is it necessary to see rice in Hi-Def?... Umm... I might just wait to see if they do singles after all. Coming from car-guys, I'm thinking it's going back...

Thats just how much grip that car gets, those tires were pretty impressive. As for the gear changing ... the car probably has a high/low selector with a close ratio 5 speed. So 1L-2L-3L-4L-5L-1H-2H-3H-4H-5H. Yeah, thats it. 5speed+high/low.
