Can you drift?

Zen Buddhism can be applied to just about anything, whether it be painting or commiting arson. Thus, it came as no surprise that it would be applied to street racing. Little did I anticipate, however, the profound effect this would have on my own ability to play Rallisport 2 after learning the valuable life lesson taught in Fast and the Furious Tokyo Drift. Little did I understand that "you just have to feel it". Once I learned this seemingly simple principle, it all came into perspective. Right from the beginning of this movie when the football player's girl friend offers herself as the prize of the race I knew I was in for a treat. I was not dissapointed. The racing was good, the cars were cool and it took place in Japan, all be it, there weren't very many real japanese people in it and most of the japanese culture was not very accurate but I wasn't about to let that ruin the experience. It is true that the movie did drag a little in the middle when the actors started talking but a montage was just the thing to get us charged again. And a surprise ending where the hero races the bad guy to settle their differences was just the ticket. Don't miss it.
I also saw Nacho Libre. It was pretty funny but it was about half an hour too long. And, I never really found the sound of farts that funny either.

How far can Vin Diesel fall before someone saves him, and a cameo in the movie that caused him to demand over $20 a film, then he shunned them only to find out they didn't need him anyway doesn't count.

Just remember: "if your not out of control, your not in control!" (Radio taught me that)
