    I just got back and MAN that was an exciiiiting thrill-ride. I was breathless for most of the movie.

    Goosebumps through the entire thing. Oh wow.

    9.5/10

    This movie brought everything the original show had, made it even more awesome and epic. The whole off course race with the Mach 5 was the best. This movie was the shit.

    I have to say, I walked away from this movie the way I expected to. As a movie by itself, it wasn't that memorable. But as a fan of the old Speed Racer cartoons, I found the movie induced a very strong sence of nostalgia. Of course the races were FUCKWIN, and I would go to see the movie again just to see them.

    Movie reviews aren't always on the money professional or otherwise.

    Really, professional reviews are just like people reviewing on the internet (or are). They each voice their opinions on a film or such. The only difference? One got ahead.

    Now, professional reviews are good. But if there's a movie you wanna see you generally don't listen to them. In other words, if you wanna see a movie you wouldn't if just some guy on a forum said it sucked, so why would you someone who gets paid to say the same thing?

    Of course, most of us do. XD

    A lot of reviewers act like Arlong Park members who bash Ben 10 (myself included) - they criticize the premise and the movie not based on its merits but to jab at the underground anime fandom, who they dislike for feelings of insecurity or whatever. I've noticed a tendency in people to outwardly criticize that which they feel most threatened by, and for people who are so blatant comic-book cocksuckers it's not surprising they'd bash an anime movie.

    I haven't seen SR nor intend to see it, but the general opinion from the mainstream folks is that "it's an awesome ride", which is really all it needed to amount to be.

    That said, the low gross is a bad thing for the studios but a good thing for me. It means we won't have many more anime movies for the next decade. :)

    No one told them to release the movie against Iron Man.

    Speed Racer is the first movie in a long time I was actually willing to see more than once. The last one that was like that was Snakes on a Plane. But that one was just so bad it was good.

    The only person who's told me it sucked was a radio show talk host, who talks on my favorite radio frequency only in the morning. The thing is, I hate his opinions, so it really shouldn't matter to me. He keeps on talking about how his radio show is all about free speech, yet everybody who calls in says "Hey, love your show". It's funny how the people who call in always say that first. Always. It makes you wonder.
    If you call in and say anything about how you don't like their show, they just won't air you, but isn't that free speech? He's a hypocrite, I tell ya.

    Anyways, that's the end of my rant. I want to see this movie, but I'm afraid I won't get many of it's Anime references, because I have a few faint memories of watching Speed Racer when I was a young boy. Oh well, as long as it's pretty good.

    It's not a particularly deep or plot-heavy show, so you don't really need to know much of anything but the basics. Just that you-know-who is really you-know-who (40-year-old "spoilers" FTW), and that the whole "conspiracy behind the races" thing was essentially the plot of every episode. There'd usually be something "different" each time, like a kidnapping, or something being smuggled in one of the cars, and the like, and Speed and crew had to uncover it and save the day. They just made it a bit more large-scale in the movie.

    That's really all you need to go into it with. Also, keep in mind that the characters are all being portrayed very true to their cartoon counterparts. So yes, Spritle was that annoying to begin with.

    My sister saw this movie and said it was horrible on all fronts, and was not justice to the original series.

    Suffice to say, while I will see Astro Boy when it comes out I don't think I'll be seeing this soon.

    Seriously, I think it was obvious the movie would be bad when the commercials looked like technicolor vomit. Not the most enticing sight.
