    The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift

    ★★½

    My least favorite movie of the franchise, but they did manage to wedge it into the continuity.

    Good: Hey that's Sonny Chiba!
    Bad: Lucas Black Sean Boswell is my least favorite character in the franchise, ugh.
    Meh: The Han accident isn't quite the same, but it still works okay.

    ★★½

    The 4th film in the Franchise takes place after the events of the 1st film and the short, "The Outlaws." This is the transition movie, taking the individual movies to a superhero franchise. Not a great movie in itself but gets us to the over-the-top fun ones.

    Good: I liked the crazy heist at the beginning of the movie.
    Bad: The story is lacking and is boring between the car action.
    Meh: Jordana Brewster as Mia Toretto bugs.

    ★★★★½

    Since seeing this movie, I have never been able to hear Stealers Wheel's "Stuck in the Middle With You" without thinking of Michael Madsen and his dance as he tortured a captured policeman.

    I watched this movie knowing nothing about it one night and I was hooked. Tarantino has a gift for dialogue like none other. I love the pop culture references, the snappiness of the exchanges and yes the profanity. The soundtrack for the movie was perfect, the juxtaposition…
