    The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift

    ★★

    Pretty weak!

    You don't need both DK *and* Han here. Sean shoulda worked for one or the other (and Uncle Kamata) directly to pay off the car, and then let the story go from there. And do some real crimes! Instead of pulling Sean in deeper for Kamata, they just hang out after school? Han sends a suicide-driver like Sean in to get money out of a sumo wrestler for one scene?

As I found out, you can't convince Scorsese that Marvel is cinema anymore than Francis Coppola could convince Frank Capra that "Apocalypse Now" isn't crap.

    ★★★★

    Dredd walks away from 150 dead civilians and drug dealers, multiple bodies mutilated, tortured, and thrown off 80-story balconies, massive property damage, psychic sexual abuse, blown-off hands, gory eye-gouges, and four cop executions.

    Chief Judge: "So, what happened in there?”

    Dredd: "Drug bust."
