Speed Racer wasn't that bad. In fact I feel smarter than all the other people who saw Iron Man for the 11th time. Iron man is so...so last week. Anyway I also saw Son of Rambow which was awesome! Better than both movies.

I posted in my blog over at TheaterHopper.com some geek lament for not seeing Speed Racer. But the negative reviews and stilted box office convinced me that it wasn't a "have-to."

Yer spot-on: SR was too loud, too bright, too fast, too dumb ... not that IM is a work of genius but at least my head didn't hurt after seeing it.

This is exactly what I did, I went and saw Ironman again and ignored Speed Racer. Die Wachowski brothers! Go back to the Matrix, oh wait, even in Matrix 2 & 3 you didn't go back to the Matrix, you went to Zion. Idiots.

I'm really looking forward to see Speed Racer, I liked Iron Man, but the next time I see it I think I'll just wait and rent it on DVD... And yeah the Wachowski brothers kinda screw up the matrix saga, but fuck it! they created it, and I think the first one was a brilliant work, far far more superior than Iron Man. So I'll give them a chance and give SR a shot!

As much as I like Iron Man, I'm not literally filtering a comparison to it for each and every film. Was The Matrix better than Iron Man - hell yeah. It's still being ripped off to this day almost 10 years later. But that doesn't mean Reloaded and Revolutions weren't a naked money grab that took a poorly executed philosophical right turn away from the original film. And, as such, The Wachowski's are under suspicion. Instead of pursuing the more-is-more route with Speed Racer and attempt to outdo the incredible effects work in The Matrix, I think they should scale back and attempt to make a smaller film like they did with Bound. They are visionary creators but you can really see more of their style in something smaller than you can in something big.
