    Do think SpeedRacer was a complete show off ? I thought Speedracer was a ham of a character.

    I loved Speed Racer as a kid. I understand that by today's standards its really crappy but I lov eit for the nostalgia that's involved. A bunch of my friends and me plan to go up and watch it on the day it comes out. Personally I think the movie is something only meant for those who either grew up with it as a child and loved it, or little kids around the age of 6. As for the new cartoons that were made. I really didn't much care for them. Speed Racer X wasn't bad but this newest one isn't something that should've been made or at least should've been made better.

    I'm not too into Speed Racer, but seeing the trailers, I'm kind of liking what I'm seeing. I think it just might be a little too colorful though...

    Re: Speedracer

    I wonder if they'll slip in the song made about the original series? Basically I mean the song I mentioned earlier, which has a bit of the theme song, then some similar music as it goes on about some guy gotten beaten by Speed Racer a year ago, & now is the time for their revenge (or something along those lines), the racing sound effects & some lines from the show, the girl telling Speed he was wonderful after he wins, then finishes with the bad guy saying "You have beaten us Speed Racer, but I solemnly swear you will pay for our defeat. We will race you again, soon! And we will beat you *Evil laughter*". There also was a more adult version, but I'll keep this G rated...

    Might be alright for a chuckle, maybe even a good movie considering who's working on it, but I won't get too excited. I'll stay open minded on this, see what people who have watched it think first...

    The Madman previously known as Daniel219

    Wish I could get on here more often. *Sigh* The down side to night shift...

    Speed Racer

    What do you guys think about Speed Racer? Speed would be cool if it didn't look so F**king gay. Why couldn't they have made it more serious like the new batman movies. The people that seen the cartoon(Anime) in the past are grown up now, and want something more serious, not some movie that looks like its on acid. I guess they want to appeal to the little kiddies?

    I know the original was that way but i was looking for something different.

    I'll see it. But I'm going to wait for it to come out on DVD and rent it first. It doesn't really look all that great to me. Sure the Mach 5 looks okay and for those that need it, it has all of the classic elements of the original. But, truth be told, I'm more excited about Iron Man than Speed Racer.
