I don't know. I just... don't know.

All I can say is that it looks stupid as hell, but we'll have to see when it's out in theatres.

Har har... I feel this is a bit too close to Sharkboy and Lavagirl, visually. They're going to have to work really hard to make it work, especially for the 90% of the market who's never heard of Speed Racer before.

How bout keeping that comment to yourself. Doesn't cost you the trouble of starting fights :P.
But anyway, I myself am a fan of the speed racer fan so I can't miss this opprotunity to see this movie. I, as the viewer, will have to decide if it's a good movie or not.

Har har... I feel this is a bit too close to Sharkboy and Lavagirl, visually.

Hell yeah  to that :D! On a visual standpoint it shows a lot of resemblance to SB & LG, but more detailed and more polished. I am guessing they put a lot of effort into the graphical touches of the film, well from what I saw in the previews anyway.

They're going to have to work really hard to make it work, especially for the 90% of the market who's never heard of Speed Racer before.

Well from what I have read in the interviews and previews the film will cover most of the characters and elements from the original show. They will cover the mysteries of the series and more likely won't leave gaps for the viewer. If anything the film will appeal to many, even if they haven't heard of the film gossip spreads like wildfire. One person can say they liked it and pass it on to another friend and so on. Yeah not everybody will like the film, but it's still a great rehash on a highly acclaimed anime series.

EDIT: That's where it becomes rape if you were wondering.

I dunno... the trailer looks corny as hell and I never saw the cartoon. Might be one to miss.

Usually corny needs to be bloody as hell or at least rated R to work, in my experience.  :P

This movie needs Authentic speed racer dialouge.

ZOOMED IN FAST TALKING AND REPETATIVE BUT WITH WORDS THAT COME OUT OF AN ALWAYS OPEN MOUTH! OHHHHH
No, no, he did. In the everything else section, at least. Officially, this makes him king.

eropS stop yelling, it gets annoying :P.

But yes in the old days the cartoon did have extremely fast speech.
They were stereotyping American speech; well so they thought back then.

You can watch the first 3 minutes of the film on IGN and... holy crap is it awful.
