Sorry I couldn't help but think of this:
I'll go see the movie looks interesting and I liked the old Speed Racer.
Edit: Maybe I should have read the story all the way first, as that youtube vid is referanced.
This isn't one that ever did it for me, and I missed the original, so no nostalgia draw.
But Wachowskis + "car fu" - crappy Christ symbolism - weak-ass new age philosophizing = potential win
I don't know about you guys, but the colors and screen caps they use in that article are giving me a headache. I'm a fan of the old show, but I'm not sure about this. I'll wait for the trailer to say more.
missed the hoopla back in the day but that looks killer.
I watched the original and the late 80's early 90's remake that was over here, but I'll have to wait and see on this. Been hearing a lot about it, but I'm still not sold that well on it. But, in all honesty, I think something like Speed Racer would be a hard sell no matter what.
The new movie seems kinda cool. I never really watched any of the cartoons, but I may give the movie a whirl.
One good thing- The voice acting may not be as hokey and clunky as the original, and the sotry shouldn't be as bad as the 90's version.
Nevermind, I didn't see the scrolling pictures thing.
Here's some video, showing the Racer X car.
The cars look badass, the costumes the actors were wearing in that video clip...
What's the most opposite that you can get from badass?
I keed! I keed!
Cheesy, Camp, Lameass, Insipid, Take your pick.
Speed Racer and his family should have been Japanese - it just doesn't seem right to me otherwise.
yes, well just wait and see what they do with the Evangelion Movie.
God, please don't remind me of that coming abomination...
Still debateing if I'm gonna see it but probly will
I will definitely see this for the pure cheesiness.
I'll watch it.
I'm more interested in the transgender media frenzy that will closely coincide with the release date.
