Initial D rocks!

Watch Initial D last night. FF was right. It rocks! Totally.

Present for the movie last night was JH, YH, Munic & Sis, Jade, C & Boyfriend. And of course, me, myself and I. FF and E put us aeroplane due to their other commitments.

As I was saying, Initial D rocks. It has the Jap anime formula perfected. First, it start with 15 minutes of sheer comedy. The business of Japanese anime is a very cruel world, more cruel than the world you see in the comics itself. There are so many Jap comics produced everyday in Japan. If you fail to capture your audience is your first 15 minutes, you have failed. So many manga authors choose to use intense comedy to secure their readers. Others use sex and violence but obviously we can't get that in Singapore.

BTW, for the uninitiated, Initial D was adapted from a hit Japanese comic book.

Sorry I digressed. Initial D rocks. Period.

Except maybe the racing scenes could be a bit better. Ok, now we period.

I thought the whole movie, including the racing scenes rock! Maybe except Jay Chou's acting and the rather abrupt ending.

Maximus> I think UNLEASHED has finished showing here... I think...

Jayaxe> Brother, when you talk about Jay Chou negatively, you display great courage. For definitely many girls will react with violent anger.

Ningx> Because it rocks!!! Wahaha.

Gab> I love the drifting car scenes... Heard the anime is even better..

Oh yeah, it rocks! If you like racing-type movies, it rocks a lot. Yeah, the Japanese comic, and the anime, were the source of this, but one definite advantage of the movies is that you can see the cars racing in live action. The racing scenes are pretty fun to watch, like you said it could have been a little better, but overall it's a good movie.
