New Speed Racer Trailer

Here is a new trailer for "Speed Racer":

I'm sorry, but every image, every video clip I have seen of this film suggests to me that its going to be a CGI-filled, creative-devoid schlock-fest. Full of stupid catch phrases, inside jokes and little more than superficial eye candy. It will probably be a weekend smash hit, maybe even for the second week, but my guess is that critically, the film is going to suck eggs.

The Wachowski's are cashing in on the interest of the 30-somethings that grew up watching the badly drawn Japanese cartoon on TV when they were kids. I always wanted my own Mach 5, and dreamed about that. This looks a little like that dream...had I taken acid before going to bed.

Seriously, I have absolutely no faith that this film is going to be even remotely good.

Watch the clip and tell me what you think.

Ha. I think it's going to be fun. I was not an avid watcher of the cartoon but I saw enough to understand the love....I'm going to see it---of course. Visually it looks awesome (well to me..ha) story wise...well that'll have to wait until I see it. I do love story. So I won't be an easily sale. But I also love fun.
