Comments Douglas Ratcliff says: May 4, 2013 at 3:22 pm I watched this on DVD a few months ago. I grew up with the TV show and it is the first time I was aware of a long term story arc in any TV show. I thought the movie held very true to and actually improved upon the original property which my parents couldn’t stand and would mock the show’s “ooos” and “Ahhhs” dialogue. I thought Speed Racer was beautiful at times but overall the color palate gave me a headache. In general I do like the over saturated color thing but in this movie it was relentless. Of course, probably without those colors it is only a kid version of Fast and Furious. I don’t know, I never saw those movies. I think your ghost friend’s insights were very interesting and it makes me want to give this movie another chance and see if I can see the movie about family and friendship because I’ve been sick of irony 5 minutes after it suddenly cropped up everywhere at once in the 90s. Douglas Ratcliff says: May 4, 2013 at 3:30 pm Speaking of the Wachowski brothers did you guys review/see Cloud Atlas? I didn’t think it was great but it was pretty well done. Possibly the best Wachowski movie since The Matrix. The movie sometimes introduced elements I didn’t think it explained well enough and then seemed to drop. But since it jumps around time and space I probably need to see it at least one more time to make some of the connections I missed the first time. Scott says: May 4, 2013 at 5:23 pm I would definitely recommend giving Speed Racer a second viewing. I wasn’t a big fan of it the first time. I thought it was enjoyable enough but nothing I’d ever have to watch again. After Dean demanded that I gave it a second viewing, I really kind of came to fall in love with it. I own it now and look forward to watching it again. And as far as Cloud Atlas goes, I haven’t seen it. I don’t know if Loren has, but I know Dean saw it and dug it. I’m waiting for the Blu-Ray.
