Go Speed Racer, Go!

Egads, I have a new favorite movie and it's the Wachowski brothers' rendition of Speed Racer. The movie is such an amazing piece of work. How good is it? Speed's characteristic gasps of astonishment can be heard throughout and the movie still rocks.

The colors are blaring and vivid. The directing of conversations and announcers is perfect and innovative. The fight scenes add a nice anime touch and the car fight scenes are ludicrous and downright kickass. The casting is perfect and even Spritle and Chim Chim add to the movie. My only complaint is that Rain just needs to stop going "whoo!" in every scene he's in.

It's a live action cartoon; it's supposed to be ridiculous.
