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.

I like the girl in Tokoyo Drift, not much of a fan of drifting though.

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.
