Does anyone care about this? I loved the show. I don't know how I feel about some of the casting or the fact that it may be G rated.
Speed Racer Movie
I've hated every remake of every cartoon. Hollywood completely destroys and exploits everything that was good about the originals. Because it's a kids movie and because it's an already established name, it will probably make 50 mill no matter how bad it is. It makes me sad. If they are going to make these movies, they should be limited to like a $6 milion dollar budget to give it an independent feel.
So I liked it in case you haven't read my review: http://www.comicvine.com/speed-racer/43340/news/&newsId=947
It was a fun film. Not an award-winning movie but I was entertained. That's all that matters. It's not realistic. It's not meant to be.
I also dug out some of my comics from the late 80s and wrote up a bit about Speed's origin. I was surprised I was able to find them pretty quickly. Got lucky I guess.
