Just saw 2fast/2furious.....

I just watched 2fast and 2furious on cable between coats of paint.
I have 1 thing to say...
Pathetic.


THis was the worst movie I've ever seen. Not only was it pathetic because it was just a stupid concept for a movie, it was pathetic because it wasn't interesting in any way at all.
It just sucked on all levels of sucking. I've never seen a movie that was so half assed. The smokey and the Bandit Movies glorified street racing and making the police look like morons, but this took (bad acting) and glorification of street racing to a new level of idiocy.....

The only thing I thought was good about the movie was that the old muscle cars were given respect and blew away the little Matchbox Look-alike "street racers" driven by the lead actors, stupid 1 and stupid 2...
THis movie was a complete waste of sitting on the sofa for an hour and a half and farting waiting for paint to dry, I could have managed my time better.......

I think I'm gonna buy a de-humidifier and a fan and place them under my hood. Make it so when I press the gas it shoots a cloud up from my hood!!

That way I can look just like "Stupid 1" rolling up to the race in his skyline!!

Manute...not sure if anything is worse than XXX...but this has to be VERY close!!

Even the trailer sucked and they're usually geared to trick you into going.

If the Fonzie guy wouldn't have backed down to the Chicken callout situation, the movie would have been over then. BUt Like the Puss that he is, he swerved, if he would have hit the Skyline, he would have kept on going and the Skyline would have been ummm.. destroyed....

At least Canonball run was funny and really nice cars, this movie was a waste of a few million dollars that someone could have given to me, that I could have turned into a great MOvie about why these kinds of movies are just not doing anything for anyone, including the actors" I use that term lightly here" because it was just plain *****ty....
The car racing in Slapshot was better... yeah I said Slapshot, when the Hanson's are "playing cars" on the hotel bed before their first game... that was more interesting and the acting was leagues above what was in 2f2f........

You know, It's sad to see a movie like that inspire teenagers (young drivers!) to new heights of self humiliation socially. THese charactors are so ridiculous in this movie in the way they act, but the scary part about it is, Kids Emulate them and actually think they can act like that in real life.
My 16 year old Daughters Boyfriend "Steve" a really nice kid, thought the movie was good.... so, I kicked him out of my house for the evening with a suggestion, go rent Cannonball run, Bullit, Smokey and the Bandit, any old James Bond movie, Car wash, and Corvette Summer (with luke Skywalker. He found all of those movies and watched them over a 3 day (night) peroid and was transformed from a Flegeling Ricer to a real auto afficionato ( spelled that wrong).. he still likes some of the cars that are rice, but has a new appreciation for " heavy duty cars" like old Plymouth's and Chevy's and fords and even Studebakers...

Is it just me or is there a huge amount of neon underlit cars since the likes of 2 stupid 2 fast came out? I was convinced I was being tailed by the cops for several miles last night - turned out to be some dork with neon fender bulbs sitting on my arse. Time was when a cop would pull anyone who had a blue light on the front or rear of their vehicle. These people need a vicious truncheoning to sort their ideas out.

Mad Max II . Now there was a road film. I searched long and hard to find an Oz Ford Falcon after that movie. The only thing that bugged me about it was that in a world where the fuel had all but run out the antagonists drove round and round and round the oil refinery. In reality Australians would have simply laid seige until the defenders beer ran out and they were forced to negotiate.

The "special effects" in the movie made it even worse. It looked cartoonish.

I try to get my boys involved in workin on the car , they want nothing to do with it, thier attitude is, why build a car when you can just go buy one?? Besides they dont wanna get their hands or those designer rags that they wear dirty. Them and thier friends think muscle cars are old pieces of crap.
It drives me friggin nuts!

I try to get them to watch the real car movies;

Bullit
Vanishing Point
Mad Max
Cannonball Run
Dirty Mary ,Crazy Larry
LeMans

But hey those are bad too, Wheres the special effects???

Oh well whatta ya gonna do
