This thing premiered on Entertainment Tonight and for the first time in a long while they got me to watch the show.? Except they didn’t really premiere the trailer and? they stupid hosts kept talking over the footage.? Anyway, after seeing this thing, it’s evident the Wachowski’s are operating on a plain of existence separate from the rest of us.? Speed Racer isn’t so much a live action cartoon as a trippy, dayglow fall into the rabbit hole.
I’m not even sure how to explain what I’ve just seen, but I think it looks cool.? Some might think this looks stupid and too “videogame-ish” and I wouldn’t disagree, but I’ll reserve judgement until I see more.? It’s almost refreshing to see a family-friendly G-Rated movie that doesn’t look like anything from Pixar, Disney, Dreamworks Animation, etc.
