Frankly, I dont like movies that are funded by big oil companies.
I think the only Matrix-esque contribution was the slo-mo. The rest of it is just 5H1TTy kid`s film crap. And there I was thinking it wasn`t going to be that bad. Anyone who wants to see this movie is aged 8 or under and gets dragged in by any advert that`s vaguely persuading. And knows nothing about cars.
An ad says that a life sized Speed Racer (I can`t believe that`s the character`s actual name) car has been built, on Yokohama tyres. Why?
sorry, pass on this one.
And THEN, it will be AWESOME.(Because there`s no way in hell any of us can watch it while sober.)
I think in the end this movie is simply a victim of trying-too-hard syndrome. It tries to please the fans of the classic Speed Racer, and at the same time attempts to appease today`s NASCAR/Burnout generation. It`s impossible to go both ways. The worst part is they try to compensate for the animation->live-action transition by making everything look over the top like freaking Mario Kart.
I think this movie would have been a lot more successful if they went with a more underground feel, like a Futuristic Fast and the Furious. Keep the effects, sure, but take all the colour and the frivolity out of it. The movie looks like everyone was driving drunk on the Royal Rainbow and got into a huge pile-up accident.
Ironman was amazing btw.
A well-animated Speed Racer would be cool, especially if it was as frantic as the show. It always seemed like they were on caffeine/hard drugs.
Someone should upload the Dexter`s Lab version of Speed Racer. :D
Not actually, for the Wacky Races. I wasn`t one of the cartoonists working on it. I mean cars that went in the Wack Races in my imagination.
It`s so cliche, how can you NOT want to see it? I mean, the actors aren`t half bad, and even though the visuals are kinda crappy, they grow on you. The only reason I want to see it is because it`s Speed Racer for gods sakes! Who doesn`t love Speed Racer!
Go Speed Racer!
It doesn`t look THAT bad. Looks like it would be good to watch high, at any rate.
YES I used to watch Speed Racer almost religiously as a child.
It IS going to be a lot different but I can separate the film from the cartoon. The plot`s going to be crap but I can deal because it looks so damn pretty.
I just wish Speed Racer looked more like Speed Racer. :[
Apparently, it was supposed to have the same "feel" as the show. That means they made it to be crap.
And this doesnt really look interesting at all.. Where is the shtty dialog? they couldnt even keep that part intact... Ohdamnisthereatraponthenextrurn? lookslikeiwillhavetogokillmyself. Go speedracer, good speedracer go?
::lifts fists to the sky::
I agree strongly but one thing, IT`S AMAZING not pretty good (sorry LittleMissQT =])!! I will pay to go see it in theaters in a heartbeat!!!
I guess i could open my mind to the style of it, if the plot is good. I`m pulling for the W brothers that they havent screwed up one of my childhood memories...
