Need for Speed

Saturday Dillon and I went to Speed Racer. I loved it! I have never seen the old cartoons or anything, but Dillon has and he liked the movie too. It was a feast for the eyes. I love bright, vibrant colors and this movie was full of them. It was seriously beautiful. At one point in the movie, Dillon and I were both reminded of Who Framed Roger Rabbit - it was at the exact same time, kind of eerie how much we think alike sometimes. All the people are actual people, but so much of the scenery is computer animated. It's great.

I could not get enough of the little boy and the monkey either. They had me cracking up the entire time. The young Speed is super cute too.

They left the movie wide open for a sequel, which I was very excited about. Then on Monday I heard how poorly it did in the box office and was bummed. Stupid Ironman! No, that was a pretty good show too, but it's sucking the life out of Speed Racer.

If you haven't seen it yet, do it now. I give it three thumbs up - bet you didn't know I had an extra thumb, huh? I would love to see it again in the theater and I will be buying this on Blu-ray when it's out.

BTW, I think Susan Sarandon has had a boob job. They look good for a 95 year old...

I saw it, too!

I was VERY suprised by how much I liked it!

The visuals were a feast for the senses and the humor at times teatered on the verge of corny, but never quite crossed the line.

In short, I loved it too! YAY!

Best quote from the movie:
"I'm gonna pinch these turds OFF!"
