Fast and Furious: Tokyo Drift

This film has virtually no plotline, is simple, shallow, and at times down right insulting but it works.The story centers on a rebellious young ten who is cast out of his mother’s house and forced to live with his father in Tokyo. The father of course has no clue how to raise his own flesh and blood. The result is more car racing, the very reason his mother kicked him out in the first place. The film is filled with stereotypes and plot holes. One such stereotype is the black teen-agers who talks in slang and dons a backwards baseball cap. One of the plot holes is why do so many people in Japan speak English. WHO CARES!! The film works. One goes the cinema to escape not expect realism. If you want reality watch a documentary. If you want to be entertained see third movie. It is the third film in the franchise with at least six films in the series created so far. Fast and Furious 6 is on a few hours after this movie on Cinemax today. Fast cars and hot women are usually the centerpiece of film like this. There is really only one woman at the heart of this film and she of course is the heart of this film. Who gets the girl and wins the race in the end. Take a wild guess. This film is fun and it works it kept me entertained for 104 minutes. Grade A

A note from an editor!

Hi Matthew,

Thank you for the time and effort you put into this piece, especially on a Saturday morning. I can tell you definitely took good notes of everything that was going on during the event!

We still have some work to do before this piece is ready to print. Your piece has a lot of information, but it doesn’t sound like a news article. What was the point of his speech/presentation? Why was he addressing this audience? What is Vanguard? What does the company do – who does it serve? You spend a lot of time narrating (for example, how he was injured), but did not report on the purpose of the event. You can maybe mention his appearance/joking about it in a sentence or two, but do not take several paragraphs to do so. Also, I like how you mentioned where the name “Vanguard” comes from.

There are a lot of spelling errors in this piece – make sure you proof read each sentence carefully.

I know I am getting back to you a little later I hoped, and I’m sorry about that! But if you have time tonight, please go through my suggestions and try to rework your piece. You can send me what you have tonight/tomorrow morning. Please bring a copy of it to the meeting tomorrow and we will discuss it further from there.

Once again, thanks for your hard work and promptness! Remember this is a learning process, and we are all part of the Waltonian team!

Talk to you soon!
