WE LOVE SPEED RACER!!!

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!!!!!!!

Muse Takes the Tardis for a Joy Ride!

Doctor_Muse
Have you heard the Muse song Uprising?

Geek World thinks maybe they were inspired by an adventure in the Tardis because the beginning of the song sounds almost exactly like the Doctor Who theme!


I'd be less suspicious if the working title of their next project wasn't "The Resistance against the Black Holes created by the Daleks and Cybermen to reach an Absolution to the Time War"

The Traditional Arcade Gets A Next-Gen Makeover

POWERSURGE

We were at the Howard Hughes Center (Wave of the Future! Wave of the Future!), in Culver City and we were very confused by the new business next to the IMAX. Powersurge? What's that? We like video fun and fitness, maybe this is something we should investigate further! We went in and realized that the OG arcade is getting a reboot! Gone is the stank and the sticky quarter slots, now it's a clean place with large screen plasmas and X-Boxes !!!!! (and Wii's) Seems pretty cool, we grew up at a time when kids still went to arcades, so the idea of physical social interaction making a comeback seems great! Unfortunately this revitalization of the arcade might be too late for us, much like The Tick's Bi-Polar Bear, "I just can't seem to get out of bed this month!"

Book Em' Boomer!

Playing Boomer/Athena didn't give Grace Park enough opportunities to strut around in a bikini, but luckily for all of us the Hawaii Five-O remake plans to leave us all smiling (and wiping the drool from our mouths)! Now we can only hope this is her new uniform!
