    Actually, you can see them all the time in Buckhead and occasionally in East Cobb. Though, the only reason you would drive a lambo around here is as a public display of your love for S&M (we've got rough roads in Georgia).
  6. Great, I need some speed.

    Dreamworks never made such low-budget schlock...

    Better have explosions.
  11. The last good Need For Speed was Hot Pursuit 2 while Hot Pursuit (2010) does look decent. The developers really "steered" away from the good old classic racing with detailed show case of each car with great music. Nowadays it's 3D models with over the top modding, over
    sexualised woman and "tagging the streets".


    I want this back!

    Im willing to give this movie a chance. Now as all of us gamers know, what sounds good as a movie sometimes doesnt MAKE a good movie. I can point to ANY number of games made into movies that flopped so hard. Mario......anyone?? Money doesnt mean it will be a good movie, just that they can throw lots at their Special effects budget. I will do as I usually do in situations such as this. Wait.....and see.

    Hey I know what sells really well these days, movies where people get framed or accused of doing something they didn't do and then having a car chase span the entire movie. Wait that's like the sad attempt at a story every N4S game has had to date. Then lets make a B grade movie and push it as an A grade movie, no one will ever know, Faster got away with it, Half the Fast and the Furious movies got away with it, and countless other movies that seem to follow the exact same formula... Not going to pay to see this, wait for the download, do yourself a favor.
