HOW LAZY CAN HOLLYWOOD GET? FOR THIS 4th ENTRY in ONE of the LAMEST "FRANCHISES" STILL GOING, THEY DIDN'T EVEN BOTHER to COME UP WITH a SUBTITLE -- INSTEAD, THEY REPLACED the WORD "AND" with an AMPERSAND, THUS "CLEVERLY" AVOIDING ADMITTING THAT the "SERIES" WAS FOUR FILMS IN and FAST RUNNING OUT of GAS .

FURTHER EXHIBITING THEIR LACK OF ORIGINALITY, THEY'VE ALSO BROUGHT BACK SEVERAL of the FIRST FILM's CAST, INCLUDING LIKELY WORST ACTOR REPEAT OFFENDER http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0004874/awards - VIN DIESEL .

THE ONE POSITIVE: THE CAR STUNTS in the TRAILER for http://www.razzies.com/forum/forum_topics.asp?FID=348 - FAST & FURIOUS  ARE SPECTACULAR....and AT the SAME TIME, SPECTACULARLY OVER-the-TOP.

11-YEAR-OLD BOYS (and THEIR MENTAL EQUALS) LOVED IT! 

OKAY, FORUM POSTERS, TIME to REV YOUR RAZZIE® ENGINES, DUST OFF YOUR HOKIEST CAR-RACING CLICHE'S, and TAKE OFF...

DIESEL: "Don't take those RAZZIE® Forum folks' comments so literally -- It was just a figure of speech when they said you were the human equivalent of a hood ornament..."

Well, it seems they're going with what made the franchise so popular, so they're bringing back the cast of the first one, then tie the events that lead to The Fast & The Furious: Tokyo Drift.

Still, considering Justin Lin directed the last one, and it was just a howler in every sense of the word (I wanted to pound the bad guy as much as I wanna pound every character on The Suite Life of Zack & Cody, he was just so annoying; it lacked the humor of 2 Fast 2 Furious), consider it an epic fail.

Adventureland will be the best of the week. I haven't seen pussy-prowlin' Ryan Reynolds for quite some time.

The problem I had with the last two movies was that they didn't have Vin Diesel and Paul Walker together. Now they're back together in this movie, so that's a plus... 

But the fact that they called it Fast & Furious (which sounds like the first film) really takes it down a notch. What's wrong with calling it Fast and the Furious 4? What a ***load of f**k! lol Angry Video Game Nerd reference for the win!

You're all overlooking the entire dropping the word "the"... TWICE... This is clearly a major change!

Actually, for them to remove the words "The" and change the and to an ampersand is a fairly interesting marketing move on their part, since it sounds so much like the first movie. They want to evoke memories of the first film with the title, and kind of try to avoid the other two.

While I still think the movie is going to most likely suck, and pander to the ADD crowd, I think their choice in a name is actually fairly good marketing...

At least the title isn't as dumb as "2 Fast, 2 Furious" (or "Blood & Chocolate" for that matter). But once this movie is out on DVD, I expect it will be confused with the first movie more than once, since most of the fans of the series also dropped the "the's" when they talked about the original movie. From what I hear, this is actually "Fast and Furious 2 1/2", since it's what "2F, 2F" should have been if the producers were able to keep the original cast together. It seems that all though Christopher Nolan rebooting the Batman movie series was one of the greatest things to come out of H-Wood, at least for that series, leave it to H-Wood to take a good idea and ruin it by applying it to every other dead movie series that should remain dead. Granted, the stunts look insanely good, but not enough for my $10. I declare this a rental.

I actually thought the third film was the best, seeing how it deals much more with plot, and there were some fantastic car chases, including the final showdown. And they were well shot.

RESPONSE from Head RAZZberry: Seriously, moviewizeguy, are there even 12 films you don't like? http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0463985/ - TOKYO DRIFT not only bombed at the box office ( http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=fastandthefurious3.htm - grossing only about 49% of what http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=2fast2furious.htm - FF2 did) it also got about http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/fast_and_the_furious_tokyo_drift/ - 65% negative reviews at RT  -- Meaning, once again, you are all but alone in praising a movie that the overwhelming majority of movie-goers and critics considered mediocre at best...

I figure this one isn't even worth a rental... I was thinking more along the lines of "If it shows up on Cable, I might watch it."

Although, I suppose the car stunts MIGHT make it worth renting...

He didn't like Watchmen. It had a seeeeex scene in it... which was part of the source material. And it was apparently all about kung fu fighting that lead up to the bad guy winning at the end.
But ultimately, you can see the appeal of a site that exists to slam bad movies has to a person who's a fan of everything H-Wood craps out.

Mall Cop: Paul Blart! That's a great idea. Can we reunite the cast from the original, or are we going to have to put in Vin Diesel in that one, too?

Umm...yes, I hated 2 Fast and 2 Furious. The sequel even got a lower RT rating than the third film, Razz, so I don't know what you're talking about. And do you really think box office equates to quality? To add onto that, the third film had no returning castmembers, and it still opened #1 in the box office in its first week, similar to that of Underworld 3. Now that's a great opening, considering those facts. I wanted to kill myself during the second, which is probably why I liked the third, because it was better than the second AND the first. If you've seen the third, which, I wasn't ever going to bother to see it in the first place, you will understand my reasoning. Like I said, unlike the first and second, it's not just about "street racing." It's something more, which is why Roger Ebert also liked the 3rd film. It surprised me.

RE-RESPONSE from Head RAZZberry: I was hardly suggesting  "box office equates to quality" (something I find it ironic that you would dare call anyone on, since you have done exactly that in post after post on this very Forum).  Instead, I was using the fact that the dismal box office on FF3 (combined with its less-than-stellar RT Rating) make it clear almost no one liked the film. No one, that is, but our own Defender of the Indefinsible, Moviewizeguy...

Your pointless bickering adds nothing to the discussion. I don't even know why you try. Are you trying to make yourself look like a dumb idiot because it sure is working. Anyway, answering your childish comments, I said sex scene because people complained about it. I didn't mind it. I didn't mind a thing I said in the "Knowing" board. I was making a point. Everyone else complained about it. A recent poll shows that the most distracting thing in the film was, in fact, the thing itself.

And once again, we go back to the "sex scene and bad guy winning equals bad movie because I wasn't able to read between the lines of what those scenes were really about, but movie with alien/angels at the end some how made me "think" equals good movie".

I'll explains this one more time, the bad guy won because he achieved world peace because he made countries look past their differences and join together to fight a common foe, the no longer human Dr. Manhattan. Comparing that to nuking Japan makes no sense. Japan was a showcase of "We are America, we have this new weapon, so we are the new superpower. Give up this war or else we will keep killing your people in the millions". In "Watchmen", it was "People of Earth need to look past our hate towards our fellow man because there is a new threat in the form of this demi-god who no longer relates to us and is now attacking us because he thinks we are inferior". But hey, the bad guy winning in the end isn't your thing, big plot twist endings are. Every forum needs a black sheep to argue with everyone just for the sake of arguing.

lol Kiddo, your subconscious hypocrisy astounds me. Am I trying to look like a dumb idiot... and am *I* childish?
By "everyone else," I assume you mean the kids at your school, because I haven't heard a single adult complain about a scene that was integral to the plot. As for the penis, again, it's distracting because of our hang-ups, and that was part of the point. He was naked in the book. They didn't even bother to go into the fact that Captain Metropolis and Hooded Justice were gay together, or that Ozymandias was gay, either. Alan Moore does a lot of stuff that is intended to make the general public uncomfortable with his work.

But seriously, last warning on the name calling.

And FYI, a lot of people in my school liked the movie, so, again, your assumptions are waaaaaay off the page.

I'll explain this one more time: I never complained about the sex scene, the dong, and the bad guys winning. And you imply that Knowing was mainly about aliens because you read a plot summary. People who actually saw the movie know this isn't the truth. It's like saying "Watchmen" is a superhero movie, or "The Crucible" is about a witches. THE MOVIE IS NOT ABOUT FREAKING ALIENS! The fact you get worked on it soooo much shows that you can't handle a single thing in movies, so why bother watching movies at all?

I was talking about Watchmen because HeadRazz was wondering if there was a movie you didn't like. Thus, my reference was relevant.
Looking at one discussion board does not constitute "everyone else." Furthermore, the people who were complaining about the movie clearly state that they didn't know anything about the graphic novel beforehand, and didn't expect to see R-rated material in an R-Rated movie. On that same note, the discussion to which you pointed me sheds light on another problem in American cinema, people either don't research the movis they're going to see (in terms of content). They just go to whatever has the flashiest lights, most explosions, and craziest special effects. Which is why Fast & Furious will make as much money as it will. There, back on topic even. How do ya like that?

Also, I've now read everything on that thread you linked to, and the way you characterized their discussion was way off. Most of the people liked it. There were a couple of comments about the Doc. Some people didn't like it, but it was at least 60% in favor. If you're talking about that "Poll," are you SURE it's not meant to be a joke? I'm not seeing any percentages, citacions, or any sort of data to back it up. I wouldn't be surprised if there were more penis topics than anything else, but 75%?
Anyway, the comments on that forum don't support your claims. There were a couple of comments slid in there about the sex scene being cheesy, and people giggling at the penis, and the fight scenes being over-the-top (which didn't seem over-the-top enough for you, even). Most people said they liked it, even if it weren't perfect.

I liked parts of Watchmen, but it turned out to be disappointing. I went in knowing what to expect. I did my research like 54654054 months before the movie (or at the time WB announced the greenlight). I knew it would be long and that it would be very talky, yet it was still disappointing. However, I very do appreciate that it's different from other superhero movies, straying away from the usual stereotypes of superhero movies. I liked that it was original.

Thank you for making that statement. I was just going to say what is said on the IMDb message boards is not the total combined sum of the what the movie going public thinks, it's just a fraction, just as this message board is not the entire sum of voting Razzie members, just a small amount of them (MWG not being one of them).

Oh, and as for "not handling a single thing about movies", you must have missed my background on that, so I'll repeat it. I had classes in film studies in high school, I was the president of my college's film club (where I also made short films), I read about movies in books, I studied all types of movies on Turner Classic Movies, the Sundance Channel, and The Independent Film Channel, I've written and published screenplays, and I've produced indie films. In other words, I think I would be able to "handle" movies, thank you very much.

See, I look at your list of qualifications, and I have to be impressed, even if I don't always agree with your stance on certain topics. My training in theater usually fell in front of the camera, rather then behind. Although I did do a lot of light and sound work, too.

One of these days, I'm going to have to inquire after these screen plays you talk about...

Hey, I'm just trying to explain that I'm not some dumbass off the street who goes around claiming he knows everything about movies when in reality he knows next to nothing. Most people here have watched movies that came out before 1977, and we have even worked professionally in the business, so I think we might have a much more creditable say as to what is a good movie and what is a bad one.

The way I see it, there are only so many crappy movies that can be nominated...take a look at the rest of the crap that was nominated, and ask yourself, "Was this a crappier movie then Tokyo Drift?"

In the end you'll probably have at least one or two instances where the answer is no...and all I can say, is we have a chance this year to fix that grievous error. :)

You must not have stuck around for the "twist ending" where it was revealed that almost the entire movie never actually happened, but was a possibility of what COULD happen.

....oh wait, that was that awful "Knowing"... never mind.


Edit: This is what happens when I try to make jokes only a little bit after getting up... I screw up my Nic Cage jokes... Obviously, that should say "Next" up there... but I figured I'd leave it up there in the original format, just for my own personal amusement.

Funny, seeing how that's exactly the first Fast and the Furious and ironic, because I know that you enjoy films like those sometimes. Don't blame it on me. It happens to everyone. *cough*Wanted*cough* *cough*Hancock*cough* *cough*The Matrix*cough* Oh, and let's see, this film in the series turned out to be the worst. Fast and Furious 3 turned out to be the second best. That says a lot.

And, really, don't mock me. I never intended to see the film ever, like Nacho Libre, but I watched it and I liked it. If you like these types of films, you should watch it and there was hardly any CGI in the film so you can't go "OH, and the film filled with mindless, crappy CGI effects" again nor can you go, "Oh, it also has a twist ending that makes you think!" again.

Also, you can't blame the third film for anything, if it was intended to be mindless fun. Well, you can but that just makes you look dumb. You don't attack/bash a film of something it was trying to be in the first place. That's a law (well, not really). You can say, "The movie is dumb, and mindless, and have mindless car chases throughout! The plot is predictable and the characters one dimensional!" But then again...wasn't that the point? It's the same with dance movies.

Shocked? Have you seen the film?

Translation: "Shocked? Have you seen the film? It was awesome! Who cares if the dialog, plot, and characters were all lacking?! It was entertaining, and that's I care about when it comes to movies! All it needed was a twist ending that makes you "think" it would have gone straight into my top 5 movies of all time!"

Oh, and let's see, this film in the series turned out to be the worst. Fast and Furious 3 turned out to be the second best. That says a lot.

No, not really, it only says lot about your taste in movies.

Also, you can't blame the third film for anything, if it was intended to be mindless fun. Well, you can but that just makes you look dumb. You don't attack/bash a film of something it was trying to be in the first place. That's a law (well, not really). You can say, "The movie is dumb, and mindless, and have mindless car chases throughout! The plot is predictable and the characters one dimensional!" But then again...wasn't that the point?

Well, it does help make critics jobs a whole lot easier. But in that case, you can't blame us for giving this movie a Razzie nod or win since giving mindless movies "awards" for being mindless movies is what we are all about.

Yeah, if I've seen 12 Angry Men on tv and doing something at the same time, I don't think I'd remember a single thing about that movie. I'm sure if you watch any movie while you're paying attention to something else, you wouldn't remember the movie. I don't see your point. It's called selective attention. Look it up.

See, I don't get how you want me to not go say "idiot," "retard," "dumb," and other condescending words when you, basically, want me to. It'slike you're asking for it. If you've read my previous comments, I wasn't trying to state your level of IQ, nor was I attacking you in any way so why you're attacking my tastes in movies, I don't know. It's apparant that what you're doing is (again) diverging from th topic and going on about someone's taste in movies. The purpose of people who do this is to 1) Ignore that the evidence I give out is, well...ignored and 2) you hoping people who read what I say is forgotten because you diverged from the topic, and it'll probably work, but that's not surprising.

I could care less about what happens to this movie. Give it every Razzie nominations. I won't be crying.

Too bad, since "12 Angry Men" is considered one of the greats and is among one of my favorites, but seeing as it all "boring" talking, I can understand why you wouldn't care to remember it or any of its messages about racism, fatherhood, or the justice system.

I'm the one asking for it? I'm not the one defending bad movies in a forum that's all about bashing bad movies. You claim "Tokyo Drift" is the second best of the three, that is only your opinion, yet you state it as if it's some universal fact that we were not aware of. THAT is why we question your tastes. Like HeadRazz said, are there even 12 movies out there that you don't like. We know "Watchmen" was one, now we just need 11 more.

You know, considering that there are only three movies in the series, it might be the second best, since it only has to best one of the other two... Now that a fourth has come out, who knows where it might fall...

And as far as 12 Angry Men goes, that is a great movie, and made a great stage production, too. I saw it when it was touring with George Wendt, very good play, great movie. Probably one of my favorite older movies.

If you want my opinion, which I know you won't care, I say Fast an Furious 3 was the BEST out of the series.

The fact that you have the audacity to support Mike is quite insane. First of all, he based his opinion on the Fast and the Furious films on how well he remembered the films, while, we shouldn't forget, doing something at the same time. Once more, I'll explain this again: If you watch ANY movie while doing something concurrently, I'm 99.9% sure you wouldn't remember a single thing about the film once you've finished it. Second, he can't read. We all know that by now. Third, he's ignorant. Fourth, he ignores my evidence for each subject we argue on. Example:

Me: On, RT, you can see Fast and Furious 3 has the second best rating, which shows that it's the second best in the series.

Mike: You're an idiot. You claim that Fast and Furious 3 is the second best in the series. I don't know why you question us about mocking your tastes in movies. I saw all of the Fast and Furious films while doing something at the same time...and I don't remember a thing from them.

Me: Oh, gee, you probably didn't remember a thing because YOU DID SOMETHING AT THE SAME TIME. I'm sure IF I have done the same to 12 Angry Men that I wouldn't have remembered a single thing in it too.

Mike: Oh, you idiot. You didn't like 12 Angry Men, one of the best films ever made.

Me: Can you read? I said "IF."

Mike: Oh, retard. Can you read?

Me: Why are you repeating me?

Mike: Why are you repeating me?

ETC.

Ah, good, there's some hope for you yet. And I said I only watched the "F&F" movies on cable while doing something else because that's all they are good for, something to keep you from sitting around in silence.

I made the comment based on how you phrased the sentance "It was the second best of the series, that says alot." You didn't mentioned anything about its RT rating being the reason why it's considered the second best, which was why I wrote it off as just your opinion.

And he's not quick to jump to the side of someone who defending bad movies in a forum that's all about bashing bad movies.

Surprising? Of course it would be a Box Office hit, it's tailor made for teenage viewing. We never claimed it was going to bomb, just that it would suck. The only thing less surprising are the all the reports of teenagers being pulled over by cops for trying to street race and mimick the stunts that are in the movie, which happens every year when a "F&F" movie comes out. There's another reason to bash these movies besides their poor quality, they encourage the youth of the nation to do stupid things.

So it doesn't matter that you put words in our mouths? I'm not claiming that you're stupid, just that your taste in movies is subpar and you lack the "logic" not to post good reviews for bad movies here. You're like a Satanist posting on a Catholic message board, trying to convince everyone that the Devil is not evil, just misunderstood -- and then you wonder why everyone disagrees with what you have to say.

PS: As for "F&F", as the Movie Preview Critic (a man who knows the history of movies well past the 70s, and can tell a good one from a bad one) says: "Just because a movie is a hit, that doesn't mean it isn't sh*t".

No, it really kind of does. No one likes to argue with someone who acts like a spoiled child and starts throwing out insults. It's a cue for people to stop paying attention to your argument, and get angry and go on the offense or defense. It's a shoddy tool for an argument, and whatever you say after that tends to go unnoticed.

The very argument we (actual Razzie voters) are making is that "Fast & Furious" is nothing more than a "turn off your brain and watch the pretty colors" flick that was created with making money as its sole intention. It doesn't deserve anyone's $10 to see it in theaters along with a bunch of annoying and loud teenagers. Studio Heads are jumping for joy now that the movie did what it was made for, making teenagers throw down their parents' money to see hack actors drive cars in the most dangerous ways possible. Sadly, this means there will no doubt be yet another "F&F" sequel and maybe a spin-off around the corner. But hey, MWG said he didn't care if we razz this movie, so let's write it up for Worst Sequel and Worst Teenage Viewership Bait nods.

I actually saw the movie, and the only thing this movie really does to advance the art of movies, is provide some fairly spectacular car stunts. But other then that, there isn't much going for the movie. Your description of the film as a "Turn off your brain" film is sadly, spot on. (Not surprising really)

Next time, I will have to hope for a free ticket before I go to the surefire stinker...

The scary thing is this movie proves that Vin Disel is the true selling point of series. The sequels without him did okay at best, but this movie blew them away now that he is back. Go figure. I guess teenagers have spoken, now that Disney has made Dwanye Jonhson their little b*tch, Disel is now the top action hero.

Hey, the game may be one, but it's still worth the fight. The way I see it, we need to bilk a good 1,300 joke titles to match the idiocy that they're trying to get out of this series.

Ah! So, are you proposing a second round of the game, then?

We can always have the sequel:

F&F: Vin Diesel Nukes A Fridge (with a bikini clad Jordana Brewster inside of it), AKA "The Teething Ring".

No sequel to the Pacifier. PLEASE! Whatever you do, at least let that Vin Diesel property DIE...

Originally one of my choices for Worst Picture, I don't mind if it only gets nominated for Worst Prequel, Sequel, Remake, or Rip-Off. Many of my classmates liked Tokyo Drift, so I'm unsure what they thought of this one, but I believe they didn't mind this prequel.

It's a movie series aimed directly (if not, entirely) to teenagers, so I wouldn't be at all surprised that your classmates liked it.
