Is it really good (Tokyo Drift)?  The weird mix of scenes shot in Tokyo and scenes shot on some sound stage from the previews kinda turned me off.  That and the weird fonts used for the Japanese signs in the movie.  The first one was kinda fun and I didn't make it through the second one.


Objectively, no, it's probably not really good--but I really enjoy it. :)

And re: Tokyo vs sound stage, for me it's as authentic as it needs to be, for a movie like this. I.e., a combination of: I had fairly low expectations for authenticity going on; and, it isn't really obviously false for someone who's been to Tokyo only a handful of times (me). That combination was enough for me to enjoy the movie's version of Tokyo as a background (and, obviously, the movie itself).
