i'm still going to see it, no matter if it'* computerized stunt scenes, or racing scenes, the storylines are still good. . I'm addicted to the first and second, but I must say.. I don't like the riced-out cars too much, except.. the Evo..

and in the first one vince'* R33 GT-R

first one was okay. each subsequent movie gets worse acting, worse plot-lines, and generally, worse cars.

at least in 2f2f, they had a couple good cars. not featured enough, though

I guess they used the imported version of the Yenko Camaro and supercharged Charger.
The movies just plain weren't good movies, weak plots and awful acting. It'* what I expect to be popular with a generation that grew up with an MTV that doesn't actually play music. That'* what the M stands for

Hahahahahaha.....oh if only it were that simplistic. Now don't get me wrong, I don't want your parents or their friends to lose their jobs at GM or Ford, but there'* so much more to it than a simple movie. Hmm...how about YEARS of corporate mismanagement? Vehicles that cannot compete internationally? Reliability issues (as compared to their Asian counterparts)? YEARS of corporate mismanagement? Oh, and I think there might have been some mismanagement in there somewhere.

Not everything in life can be reduced to 1s and 0s...

I read up about that new movie, they spent 7 million on 200 cars.....(there were dupilcates for one that would be wreaked) they had at least a dozen and a half Monte Carlos (i dont recall the year...late 60s or 70'* model i supose, and another dozen and a hlaf '68 Mustangs...GT-350s i belive (i could be wrong)...each one looed more beat up than the next...

and something funny....in the storyline, this kid has a Skyline GT-R Enging he puts in his dad'* Mustang over night so he can go drift with it....when they were shooting the movie, they had to go back to the Ford Windsor V8 ....the picture of the nissan CRAP in a Mustang is about the worst image i have seen
