Image Property of Warner Bros.
So Speed Racer, the Wachowski's totally misunderstood ode to the classic anime, is on TV and we just need to say, WE LOVE SPEED RACER!!!!! We saw it opening night on IMAX and it was one of the most exhilarating movie experiences we've ever had!! We still have a beef with EW for their completely ignorant and misinformed review (though they weren't the only one's who hated it), but luckily they just pissed us off with their terrible and also horrendously misinformed Alice and Wonderland review, so at least they're consistent (Though EW to us is like Megan Fox, even if you don't like her personality, if there's a new picture of her somewhere we'll check it out! and ogle...a lot).
Speed Racer is one of those interesting examples of a terrible trailer campaign mixed with jaded reviewers who didn't understand the source material or that it was a kid's movie, giving it such terrible scores, that no one went to see it. All that being said, pretty much everyone we've ever talked to who saw it, generally LOVED it. Wait, fun at the movies? What's that all about?
Flipping cars! Awesome directing! Live-action anime! Christina Ricci (HOT) and Emile Hirsch! Chim Chim! GO SPEED RACER GO!!!!!!!
