I agree the series got old when they decided to do 2 fast 2 furious without the "VIN" man, but The first one was rather enjoyable . However when the sequel (Now up to 2 sequels) is just the same plot done over and over again as the original it gets pretty annoying.

A early look at the tomatometer pretty much says what most people have said about the series itself (Including the HeadRazzy) "It is not the actors or the plot that is the star of the series, but the cars themselves". With that being said the reviews are as of right now sitting at 83% UPDATE: reviews now sitting at 63%( http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/fast_and_the_furious_3_tokyo _drift/

and from reading the reviews it only got that because of the "True Stars" of the franchise.

Perhaps the saddest (or scariest?) thing about the FAST & FURIOUS movies is that they encourage young urban audiences to emulate the driving tricks they celebrate -- Making them among the few movies that actually can be blamed for deaths and injuries...

Firstly: My cousin's boyfriend died in an accident trying to copy the first movie

Secondly: the other day some idiot "drifted" right infront of me and nearly lost control endangering not only him, but ALL those around him...

Conclusion: THESE MOVIES ONLY PROMOTE STUPIDITY!

Well, the tomatometer is now at 58% and falling...I guess the intelligent reviewers finally took a whack at it!! Sorry, IT Beast...IMHO Vin Diesel is a waste of film stock as is the whole F&F series!!  You can only watch so many car races, chases and wrecks before you're brain(if you got one)goes ***ALERT!! This is stupid and boring!***

Oh, Rosen, while I agree in principle with you're arguement, moron's will be morons.  If they don't get inspiration  from a movie like this, they'll find it elsewhere!!  For more stories of the lame and clueless check out www.darwinawards.com and see for yourself!!

It didn't do too well at the B.O. this weekend, though it finished 3rd, but this 3rd one was not a lucky charm. I even said that once, perhaps in another forum.
The Mormons were'nt really popular in the beginning, they're now becoming more popular, even in Hollywood.

I agree about "morons being morons". Remember back when they tried to blame Pro Wrestling for Lionel Tate killing his playmate? I suppose Pro wrestling also made him rob the pizza-man who delivered to him, right? Good God, let's blame everyone but the kid.

Yeah, it finished 3rd behind Nacho Libre...when you're beaten by Jack Black, you know it's a stinker!!  I can only hope this franchise has finally run out of gas!

Let us pray that this is the last of the series of atrocities... or maybe just slap everyone who buys a ticket?  Could work...

 

Here's lookin' at you, Kid.

You know what a really good car movie is? Cars... I just saw it, and thoroughly enjoyed myself. I didn't expect it to be as good as it was, it is definitely up there among my favorite animated movies ever.

 

Here's lookin' at you, Kid.

Yeah, I just took my son and daughter to see Cars as well. I have to agree with you, it was a lot better than when I originally saw the trailer for it. My Son loved it (He is 8). My daughter was a little bored by it (she is 4). The movie was aimed more at the mature kid than any of PIXAR's early stuff. I loved the gag reel at the end, when Pixar satirized their own previous films...

Well RAZZ, granted not only did I not see this automobile showcase that was centered around a overly used and lame ass story plot but, I think...

"Basic Instinct 2" has the Worst Remake or Sequel RAZZIE in the bag. You've got to admit, compared 2 this...FF3 seems like Oscar Bait!
