FightCast - Round 2: Speed Racer Trailer and The Golden Compass
December 7, 2007
In this week’s FightCast, we fight about the newly debuted Speed Racer trailer and The Golden Compass, two of the biggest topics of discussion heading into this weekend. The very first trailer for the Wachowski Brother’s adaptation of the Japanese cartoon Speed Racer arrived yesterday, and is getting quite a polarized response. Alex loved it, while Peter thinks it's going to suck. The Golden Compass is a fantasy adventure film based on Philip Pullman’s novels that stars Nicole Kidman, Daniel Craig, Eva Green, and Dakota Blue Richards, and is directed by Chris Weitz. Peter enjoyed it a lot but had some problems, and Alex has a similar opinion.
If you're looking for high production value, look elsewhere. This isn't even a show, it's a conversation between two film geeks. The official website has launched - and for all future episodes and to subscribe to the podcast, head right to: FilmFightCast.com!

i laughed a few times throughout. Only listened to the speed racer portion. "The Wachowskis can't fuck up."-Alex Damn straight.

Sorry, I want to listen to this but the audio is unacceptably bad. I can't understand what you are saying.

Heh, looks fine to me! I'm not going to see it expecting a freaking masterpiece... Way over the top and surrealistic is exactly what I'd expect from a remake of Speed Racer
