terrible tv choices

Since I was craving a bit of mindless movie tonight and vaguely remembered enjoying a couple iterations of Fast & the Furious, I decided I'd give Fast & the Furious: Tokyo Drift a shot. BAD IDEA. It was mindless all right, but it also really annoyed me. See also: white boy protag is THE MOST BORING CHARACTER OF ALL, WHY IS HE THE FUCKING PROTAG-- except duh, he's the only white main character (I see you, Hollywood logic). -.-;;;;;; Also, he was totally the least impressive driver before he got ~schooled~. Seriously, I would have happily watched a movie about Neela-learns-to-drive, or Twinkie entering the drift scene, or the epic bad romance between angstball D.K. and hotass sit-back-and-make-popcorn man Han (Sung Kang ilu!)1, and I am cranky that none of these were the movie that was actually made.

Otoh I appear to be committing the bad romance fic2 in my head at this very moment, so. *hands* (Should've known to kick myself into writing process via getting cranky, heh.) Er, anybody up for beta when it's done?

1. Okay, so I ended up watching for the epic bad romance, but a more central and less subtextual version would have been nice.
2. INSTEAD OF WHITE LOTUS, WHICH I STILL NEED TO ACCOMPLISH. WOES.
