Part 3 of ONE LAST RIDE
Woah. What was I thinking a few years back when I first saw this one? I used to hate this movie and I was completely dreading to rewatch this one, but color me surprised. No, VERY surprised. The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift is easily the best film so far in the franchise, blowing the first two out of the water. There's an actual plot with understandable motives, a much better sense of pacing, some sick car races and a somewhat memorable villain.
However, I still had some issues with it. Lucas Black might possibly be the worst actor to grace the big screen in quite some time. His acting always garners some…
The third instalment in The Fast and the Furious franchise, The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift takes its street-racing thrills to a whole different continent, brings a new freshness into the series by discarding the original cast of its predecessors while adding a few new styles, but this new vibe fizzles out soon as the plot is marred by numerous shortcomings.
Set many years after the events of the first two movies when series chronology is taken into account, The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift tells the story of a high-school teenager with a penchant for car racing who's sent to Tokyo to avoid prison time in America for his illegal street racing activities but soon discovers an…
The "Halloween III: Season of the Witch" of the Fast/Furious franchise, Justin Lin's "The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift" bears little connection to its predecessors beyond fast cars and a certain cameo. Those fast cars create energy and color, however, making the quick-paced, sometimes exhilarating experience an enjoyable, light-weight romp.
Following a teen troublemaker as he relocates from the US to Japan for one last chance living a life free of incarceration, "The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift" finds the good-hearted youngster picking fights and racing cars down Tokyo's streets. A rebel without a cause who can rarely avoid trouble no matter his best intentions, the young man finds redemption behind the wheel as his own path tangles…

Part 3 of One Last Ride
"You’re like the Justin Timberlake of Japan, right?"
When I originally saw Tokyo Drift a few years ago, Ihated it because it didn't include any of the original cast (except for…) and I also didn't dig the transition from America to Japan.
Younger me is a fucking idiot.
Not only is Tokyo Drift my favorite out of the first three installments, but it is also super cool and super entertaining.
Lucas Black is Sean “Doesn't Give a Fuck” Boswell this time around, replacing Paul Walker’s O’Conner as the lead (white) dude. The one big thing I remembered about this character, from the first time…
"No past, no future, no problems...Just the moment"
The more things change, the more they stay the same. Parodies and subverts the earlier entries while demonstrating street racing in a purer form than any other entry. It treats drifting not like the impractical stunt it is but rather as that of an ancient martial arts technique, demonstrated in a number of wordless scenes where the gesture takes precedent over language. This is the new flying guillotine. The franchise has always been about family, but the father-son display of austerity mixed with total friendship finally feels like someone is making good on the promise. You can't escape the meat-headed, big-dicked politics of the teenage years, but you can run as long as possible.
"I have money, it's trust and character I need around me. You know, who you choose to be around you lets you know who you are. One car in exchange for knowing what a man's made of? That's a price I can live with."
Drifting seems like the perfect metaphor for this movie. Drifting is a silly maneuver with no real racing applications that is used (mostly in movies) merely to look cool, but it just works. It's fun and it looks awesome. Likewise, the film itself is apparently more concerned with aesthetics than anything else, but it just works. Where 2 Fast got bogged down in bland crime thriller plotting, Tokyo Drift stays focused on character, rooting its narrative…
does my rewatch of this count if i played steely dan over like 1/3 of it
Before diving in, let me tell you guys something on what happened when I was trying to watch Tokyo Drift on my TV! After I opened my 7-movie collection inside a tire (which smelled like adrenaline goodness by the way), I put the disc into my blu-ray player and I was ready to watch it. But then, the disc went haywire and it looked like shit on my TV. So, I decided to watch it online on Putlocker (my favorite site to watch stuff online) because that's the only way I can watch Tokyo Drift.
Now, after having seeing the movie, I really do wish I can watch the film in the most shitty way possible before because Tokyo Drift…
The Karate Kid 2 of the Fast and Furious franchise with a troubled kid shipped off to Japan who gets schooled in drift racing. Works better as a car racing action vehicle then it does as a teen melodrama with some fine stuntwork and an especially thrilling finale. Tenuously related to the rest of the series, this film is still plenty enjoyable as long as you don't take it too seriously.
I unapologetically love this movie, it's one of those movies i can just pop on and it's always a good time. The story goes down so smooth and i love the characters, setting and of course the cars. I'm not a huge car guy but this movie made even me excited because Japanese cars are the sort that i like, Hans RX7 continues to be my favorite car in just about any movie. The thing that bugs me about this though is the spiral of hate this movie receives, i can understand it's not anything spectacular but overall this movie isn't bad. In fact this is my favorite movie of the F&F franchise as i think the later movies have…
Here is my rigorous intellectual analysis of The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift:
damn, drifting is so cool
teach me how to drift
this is my favorite episode of anthony bourdain
this is my LOST IN TRANSLATION
Lucas Black plays the world's oldest teenager in Tokyo Drift, the third film in the Fast & Furious franchise. Dude was 24 when this film came out and he looks it.
He plays a high schooler that gets sent to Japan to stay with his father after competing in a race and totalling a car. While there, he makes some new automobile enthusiast friends and acquaints himself with Neela, an Australian student in his class. From then on it is a classic tale of cinema: man vs drifting cars.
The movie is bombastic and ridiculous, and that's how these films should be. The plot is there only to justify the spectacular looking racing sequences. Although Black is a pretty bland protagonist and a poor substitute for Paul Walker in my opinion.
So yeah, I dug this movie for the aesthetics of it. The racing was dope, the music was dope, the cars were dope.
Got to rate this so highly because it's an all time favourite of mine. I just love this movie.
