Alright, I know now that the Jap-car age has died out, the movies have become cliche’, but the fact is as a movie buff, every movie in it’s own way has delivered. The first was ground breaking, especially after that God-awful Stallone movie. It delivered on every level. Soon after the genre started to fade, but the second came out, Diesel-less, and it slumped hard, but lets face it, on a rainy Saturday you are not going to say “No”, deny it or not. The third came out, otherwise known as “Tokyo Drift” which had none of the original cast, and a different storyline, but to me, held itself stronger than the second film, and introduced us to a key player that we didn’t realize “Han”. To be honest, the third added a new level to the story, and to be honest was entertaining on it’s own. Han we soon find out at the end of the third movie used to be with Diesel’s character before the first movie, thus tying it all in. Still, at this point a fan, next comes the 4th installment and almost all the players are intact. In itself a solid movie, removing the cringe worthy Michelle Rodriguez, who died in the movie. The fourth was a movie that held it’s own, and progressed the story nicely, and is in my opinion the 2nd best in the series. Fast forward to today, and the gang is on the run and after one last score, but has pulled together the remaining characters of the film short of Tokyo Drift, which is in actuality the last installment. So we have Diesel, Rock, Walker, and the gang from 1,2, 3 and 4, easy way of figuring it out….Han is from the final installment, but this one takes place before Tokyo Drift where Han dies. So think of Tokyo Drift as part 6. Is it perfect? No. But for God sakes use your imagination and just realize they didn’t think the series would go this far, and simply jumped the track and came back. Bottom line, this series is your dirty little secret that you watch on USA when nothing else is going on….I will be there opening weekend, not just for the beer at the movie tavern, but for the mindless action that will make me drool out of the side of my mouth.
Continuing thoughts from the mind of Snowman….
-Christian: Well, I have been and always will be a fan of Christian. He has a great work ethic, good mic skills, he’s quick in the ring, and a solid all around performer. He’s not on Edge’s level, but he is up there. My question is what does the man have to do to win the World title??? He’s done everything required in my mind. You give it to Swagger and Khali, but not Christian? Is it because he went to TNA? I don’t blame him, TNA was rising at the time, and he couldn’t buy a win on WWE tv at the time. Shit, X-Pac ditched you Vince, went to WCW, and came back with no penalty. So what is it that is keeping him from the big gold belt?! But hey, why waste time on Christian when you can give it to an undeserving jackass, am I right?
-Mid-Card Titles: I am sure good ole’ Pat Patterson is thrilled with how much the IC title has been shit on. What was once the belt that meant you were the best WRESTLER in the world now means, “we have no plans for you right now, but hold this to seem important til we figure something out” and of course it’s WCW counterpart the US title which means the exact same thing just on the red brand. They are place holders and nothing more. And the tag titles, there are no tag teams anymore, why have the tag titles??? I am so fed up with 3 important belts in the history of WRESTLING be shit on.
-Raw from Britain: WTF WAS THAT?! Seriously, that was possibly the worst wrestling show I have seen since the Russo days of WCW. Nothing flowed, everything ran too long, it felt very thrown together like the last days of WCW. R-Truth will never get over. He will always be known as Mr Bojangles, rapping and dancing for the crowd. Sorry, it didn’t work in WWF in the attitude era, or in TNA, and it’s not working here. My opinion on Sin Cara stands after this match, while he didn’t botch the entrance, perhaps a bigger trampoline this time, he looked uncomfortable. And finally WTF does CM Punk have to do to actually win??? He’s this generations Jake the Snake and you are wasting him. GRRRRRR!
