Go Speed Go!!!

Monday, May 12th, 2008

Speed Racer was amazing. I was totally impressed by the insane surreal world that was created for the movie. The visual imagery completely sold me. On top of that, I thought that the story was great. Granted, it was a little slow in the set-up, and there was way too much Spritle and Chim Chim for my taste (though as it was made to be a PG kids flick I feel like I can’t judge too harshly). Matthew Fox was great as Racer X, and overall it was a really excellent movie. It was super fun, and helped me remember why movies are fun.

I give it 4 out of 5 stars.

The Graphic Novel Book Club was on location at the Tempe Marketplace last night to catch Ironman on the CineCapri (read: ginormous) screen. We met early for a meal and after Slices ran out of pizza and ice (not as funny as it sounds) we got excellent seats in the theater. All reviews will be in the comments section to avoid accidental spoilers, but let me just say that the movie rocked.

So how did you like the movie?
