Can you say BARF. The only thing worse that the acting in that movie was the dumb ass stunt the did. Worse than fake.

I had a friend killed a few years ago "drag racing" so I personally think movies that promote this activity are pure trash.

The cars were cool though...

Favorite car chase movies:

1. Bullitt
2. Road Warrior
3. The French Connection
4. The Seven Ups
5. The Blues Brothers
6. Dirty Mary and Crazy Larry
7. Ronin
8. The Italian Job
9. Mad Max: Beyond Thunderdome
10. That movie...can't remember the name...but the car/driver gets it at the end from a bulldozer...anyone know?

Ugh. Terrible movie, terrible cars.

While they may have had real power, the exteriors of them were so... rice. Therefore, even though the cars in the movie were fast, they looked just like your run of the mill honda civic in the high school parking lot- and thus also giving all the morons driving their rice-rockets the impression that their cars are as good and/or as fast as the ones in the movie!

I couldn't count the number of MORONS that tried to race me within the weeks following the release of that movie. It's really funny to have some moron next to you who wants to race, not acknowledge him, and then accelerate normally- only to beat him trying to go at 11/10ths. <img src="graemlins/smokin.gif" border="0" alt="[Chilling]" />

I heard also that with the DVD of the movie, they're including a NOS window sticker. So, there's gonna be a huge crop of morons putting MORE stickers that mean nothing on their cars! I mean, if the point of the movie was to show that there is something other than performance-less rice, why does it perpetuate the problem by includign a piece of 'rice' in the dvd?

good points. I guess I'm the only one that actually likes the "rice" look. I must admit that the riced Jetta looked like shit. I think the civics look ugly too. Eclipse's are the best then the Integra. I'd probably get shot though if I owned a rice-rocket. At least where I live there are no white kids driving ricers.

You can blame my ass for bumping up the Linkin Park thread, grovey. I've been a bit slow in checking out threads in this forum. When I read that funnyass shit about how creative and original they are, well, I couldn't help but put my 2 cents in.

I guess I just bumped this lameass topic too.
I suppose it's only normal to get wet over a bunch of cgi effects and half-bit actors cuz the cars are "tight".

If you want to watch more cinematic excellence like this, I know a place where I can get you both "Flintstones" movies for cheap!

My good friend in China just bought a souped-up Lancia. I myself don't like the "rice" look (glad to know there's a name for it).
post #10 of 18
As one of the few people who refuses to purchase a car (yay for extreme environmentalism), I thusly know nothing about them--nor the terminology surrounding underground racing cars. So someone please clue me in: What the hell is 'the rice look'?

My imagination is running wild with speculatory ideas involving spray glue all over the exterior of a car and a few people with sacks of rice...you can imagine the hideous outcome. So please, tell me!

Oh, I did see this movie (just last night as a matter of fact) and I felt what I imagine old computer-illiterate people feel like when their grandkids rant on about computers when it came to all that car talk.

Example Below:
Kid: "Hey Grandpa! I just got 300 more megs of BLTs for my VDU in my Hal2000! Do you wanna defrag my scandisk on my secondary slave partition of my mothers board?!"

Grandpa:"Uhh, that's quite the shiny computin' device you got there Timmy..."

The lines in the movie were like "I got my turbo-charged NOS-engaged 2001 johnson-rods in the real axel secondary storage compartment outfitted with B-S 810's." HUH?

rice doesnt refer to rice itself, but to the fact that most of the cars that are "riced" are japanese. hence, riced out american cars (wannabes) are a joke because they arent even japanese. like those dumasses in mustangs w/ big wings on the back w/ altezza taillights...what idiots...

riced out cars basically are determined by the modefied style to the body of the car. alot of riced cars i run into have only body mods and no engine mods, which makes the car only for looks, and basically useless when it comes to racing. i run into those occasionally and destroy them in street racing. its a joke, and really not even funny.

the mods include: clear tail lights, big wing, custom paint job, HID lights, fog lights, general extreme style body kit, black lights, neon lighting under the car, lowering, etc.

personally, i only make engine based and driving performance mods (when i can afford them), as i race semi-pro, so looks dont mean much when u drive to win. of course, my car looks damn good anyway...so theres not much need to mess w/ it.

alliance &gt; Thanks for explaining that to me. Lots of things can be done to cars, more than I imagined. I've yet to see one car driving down the street here with all those enhancements/modifications. But I have seen a Volkswagon with green neon underneath it. Looked kinda neat.

yeah, well the car that i race (a honda S2000) looks damn fast w/out any mods to it, but i think its funny when people try to make a car look fast, when its really dog slow. im tempted to take my other car, an integra GS-R, and throw some engine and suspension mods in it w/out any body work. then when i race, noone would think its fast. i think being a "sleeper" is much more fun, cause u destroy yer opponent when they think they got a sure win.

btw, i see riced out cars all the time. hell, ive even seen riced out trucks. now, those are idiots...what good is a lowered pickup?!?!?!
i cant believe the morons that exist in the human race...

Riced out trucks! LOL! What a waste. I should get some spoilers and neon for my tricycle while I'm at it.

If you're going to drive, do so in a Dodge Caravan Base 2.4L inline 4 cyl. (I'm sorry to report that it IS a double overhead cam. I tried to get wimpier, but oh well)

Never quite figured that out either...

I just saw a lowered truck with a cool paint job though:

PRAISE THE LOWERED

Kind of a cool phrase... even if the truck was gay as hell.

Huh? Where I'm from (SoCal), lowered minis have been around far longer than "rice rockets".
