I spent this past weekend dusting off "Ronin." It used to be that if I wanted to see some "fine drivin'" I'd play this disc over and over. Now I find myself suddenly beholden to that "Johnny-come-lately" disc, the Fast and the Furious. I realize that the type of driver featured in Ronin is sooooo much more talented than the "rice-boy" stereotype seen in the Fast and the Furious. I also realize that the cars are so much more....how you say...SOPHISTICATED in Ronin. Ronin is by far a better picture with quality actors and actresses and an actual coherent plot to follow. It's a much more interesting film in that sense, no?. So how come I can't stop watching the Fast and the Furious?. Jeez, I can't stop groaning at the waaay bad acting (I'm sorry, but Paul Walker just doesn't cut it) and paper thin plot yet here I am watching this film for the umpteenth time. Maybe it's the music, maybe the it's cars, maybe it's the women........ Michael.
