I've checked the 6 Reading Cinemas in Victoria(via the web) and none of them list Initial D at all.

I have watched this movie today, this is a VERY VERY impressive live action movie. Action is good, preformances are great (all but one)....If i dare say.. the best live-action adaption of a manga/anime to date. Very Happy

wait... how bout the ONLY good live action adaptation to date.. lol..

Only let down... Jay Chous acting... his cantonese Razz ...worst i've seen in a movie. Wink

This makes me want to see it even more. Only 1 day to go through before I see it and I'll be able to get my rusty Arcade Stage card a workout. Smile

You're probably right since the Reading Cinemas and Galaxy World are both on the same level. Smile

EDIT: I just went to see Initial D today(Saturday) and the cinema was packed. I thought the movie was great, the races were good and the cars were like fan-service in car form for me. The FC and the EVO IV were really nice to look at =P~.

The only problems I had with the movie was the exclusion of the FD (My favourite car) and the plot/story changes. For my friend who hasn't seen the Initial D anime, the movie was "awesome" as he said himself but for my other friends and me who have seen the anime, the movie was confusing at first. The biggest problem I had wasn't about the movie itself butthe people in the cinema. They laughed as loud as possible at the most ridiculously unfunny things.

I also agree that Jay Chou can't act, he was so boring to watch during the him and Natsuki scenes.

I forgot to mention that the movie made Team Emperor look so tacky. I don't know if the truck was meant to make them look "proffesional" or not but it just made them look like they were from a circus.

Is it wrong that I found the aerial shots of the consecutive hairpins in Akina(Haruna) better than pr0n? Embarassed

That trucked reminded me of something out of GTO. But i guess, they went for the 'truckie' look for TE.

They did over do Bunta's character.. much more perverted and over the top Laughing

i guess after all being a HK film, the humour would be more directed towards the chinese type of humour.

Yeah, I don't remember Bunta being perverted at all in the anime but in my opinion it was funny.

I'm chinese Razz

The people who were annoying me with their laughs sounded like they were faking or exaggerating. Everyone clapping at the end was pretty cool though, it reminded me of how popular Initial D really is.

Shocked Holy ****. What ****ing big rock have I been hiding under to miss the screening!! Embarassed
Have mercy!
EDIT: less than 24 hours later... I'v seen it. phew. Cool no need to worry.
Not bad IMO. Bunta makes me laugh. Yeah, but maybe Keisuke would have made it a better movie. we'll never know.

Speaking of the three car race. Did the Evo crashing remind anyone of the Evo crashing in Legend of Speed?

Prolly cause Jay doesn't speak regular Canto, he speaks a really... slurry sort. I dunno if it's just a regional thing (he's from Taiwan) or just his pronounciation... his singing is even 'worse', but in the case of his music I prefer it- much less harsh sounding then regular Canto.

Or maybe it's just cause I'm a huge Jay fanboi Embarassed

What songs would you recommend for someone who has never heard any of his songs besides the ones in the movie?

Anyone know what the song playing during the end credits is called and who it's by (Maybe Jay Chou? Edisen Chen?)?

The end credits song was Jay. As for songs... hmm... I guess it depends on what you want to hear. His music has a big range (rap to semi-ballad...) but they're all in his style so it's all really good, even if you're not a fan of that type of music.

As for songs... I dunno... Fantasy is generally considered his best album, and 8 Dimenions his weakest (though I like it)... lemme pick a random cd off the shelf... 葉惠美 (Ye Hui Mei)

懦夫 (Nuo Fu) is a good example of his rock style
晴天 (Qing Tian) is a softer song...
同一種調調 (Tong Yi Zhong Diao Diao) is a rap-heavy one...

That's just picking off this cd (using jay-chou.net for the names cause, as I said, I don't know Canto Razz) as an example. His other cds have a similar spread across the genres...

Probably his best song is, imo, 簡單愛 (Jian Dan Ai)... a soft song but it's so totally awesome.

Thanks for the recommendations. Hmm...now the only problem I have left is to go and buy some CDs or "acquire" some samples.

Worst. Canto. Ever. Award goes to Jay Chou!

Film wise it wasn't too bad. However the total mis-caste of the main characters sucked the big one. Jay played a decent Takumi he had the whole 1 face exprssion thing down pretty good. However his scenes with the delicious Anne Suzuki was flat and dry, comparable to listening someone run their finger nails across a chalkboard.

Edison still in my mind would have made a better Takumi, and Andy Lau or Ekin Cheng a better Ryousuke. Another thing as good as Anne Suzuki is at been Mogi I felt any number of other HK female actors could have done an equal if not better job. Either one of the lovely ladies from Twins for example Very Happy And the dub job for Anne Suzuki wasn't that good either there are parts where its very obvious its out of sync with her mouth movements.
