Hey, everyone. ”Moriarty” here.
I don’t care what you say... I think this looks groovy. If I want a movie about real-world car racing, I won’t watch SPEED RACER, but if I want to see a batshit crazy cartoon from the ‘60s turn into a batshit crazy film using cutting-edge technology, it looks like there’s finally a film to fit that bill.
I love the colors. I love the sensibility we see here. I love the monkey. I love the cars. I love the nighttime scenes on the dark road. I love the shot of the dude climbing the side of the building. I love the teacher yelling, “Speed Racer, slow down!” I love the sheer insanity of the racing. I love how totally serial Matthew Fox is. I love it. And I can’t wait to see this film IMAX as soon as possible.
My son’s got no idea what his little brain is in for in May. Thanks to all 2,000 of you who sent this link to us.
