  • 9:11 All things considered like; the video somehow corrupting, or it's in the footage of how they did the VFX and that's the only video of that footage you could find only the internet. it's probably Adobe Premier Pro, I hate Adobe Premier Pro because of how much it costs, I hate Adobe in general.

  • "Speed Racer" is a terrible film, narratively, its cast lead, and in terms of overall execution. They should have used in-camera effects, and photo realistic digital effects. Why? You can't feel the weight of the cars (betraying the effects), when the vehicles leave the ground/road...and/or when they are impacted by other vehicles. "The Fast and the Furious" sells racing shots much better. Even better than that, are the shots from the "Mad Max"/"Road Warrior" films. If I shot Speed Racer, I'd have used full-sized mock up of the cars...and raced them on a real racetrack. Further. I would have used radio controlled miniatures for some of the more exotic race track shots. The slavish use of CGI, in Speed Racer, was just lazy...and looked exactly like what it was; video game like CGI. The original animated series was better, and the in-camera race shots from "Viva Las Vegas" that inspired the cartoon...were also much better. As per the city environments, I would have created a production design that closely mirrors that of "Blade Runner" and "Akira". Ultimately, Speed Racer should have had the realism of "Bound", "The Matrix", and "V for Vendetta". Instead, we received a dumbed downed version of the cartoon...where there are no consequences for ones actions...and no one ever gets hurt. In the original cartoon, people got killed. That created emotional tension, and made you care about the characters and the attached stakes in a race. Instead, we received the "Spy Kids 3-D" version of Speed Racer. Keanu Reeves would have made a great Speed Racer or Racer X.

    • @Akalanka: You are correct, but that is the problem with the movie. The Wachowskis saw "Spy Kids 3-D" and wanted to make a movie like that for their nephew and here we are. As fluff entertainment for a 5 or 10 year old, who is raised softly, I guess it's perfect--but I was raised with the original "Speed Racer" cartoon, "Star Trek" and TV Westerns--which amid episodic violence, they depicted a moral/ethical dilemma. The characters, good or bad, had a choice to kill or not to kill. This was also in the era of "Star Wars" and "Space Cruiser Yamato"/"Star Blazers"...and even "Johnny Socko's Flying Robot", where real death was depicted. As such, it gave me a certain respect for the heroes and their on-screen sacrifices...to know that they were risking all in order to do good things for others. In other words, there is a certain emotional gravitas to the material--even for shows and movies meant for kids--because the stakes are high--and you are instantly made to appreciate those stakes. In the live-action version of Speed Racer, the consequences for action or inaction where only getting beaten up...or your car turning into a safety ball--thus allowing you to survive. As a result, it ultimately made the movie play flat. Combine that with the poor acting performance of the film's lead (an uninspired casting choice)...and I checked out of the film emotionally speaking--from that point on, there was nothing left to watch but video game style graphics--and pretty wipe style edits. My point is the following. We have seen numerous Star Wars rip-offs...and even numerous poor Star Wars films--each of them had great effects/or CGI (at least to a point)...but of their vast number--the films that stayed with us...were the ones where the stories/plots and the character arcs were great and emotionally weighty--for that is the dividing line between a classic film, and throw away garbage. The live-action version of Speed Racer belongs in the lower tier of films. If they could have only given us a movie like "Back to the Future", in feel...and in terms of casting and acting performances; and most importantly, in terms of sheer great writing and direction--I would have applauded it. Lastly--I saw a making of Speed Racer documentary, and there was a segment that focused on the FX team--that was shockingly eyeopening about the entire production. Instead of having their FX team focus on creating environments and revolutionary effects shots--many of them, as their first task, were asked to make racing car logos for months. They could have easily assigned interns to do that--hell, you or I could have done that. My point? This should inform you of where the focus of the production was--it was all about visual spectacle, over substance.

    • In my opinion, Speed Racer (the movie) is better unrealistic, without the cars being bound by physics, and it wasn't meant to be emotionally heavy with actual death. Speed Racer emulates a cheesy, over-the-top experience of visual ecstasy with trailing lights and flying sparks, putting less focus on the drama and more on the hype. Sure, the storyline isn't great, and the style isn't for everyone, but asking for this movie to be realistic misses what it is. Also, check this: ispast.info/losk/v-deo/pKmre2qyt2exfqQ.html

    Adam FryerAdam Fryer8 dögum síðan
  • the thing freddie mentioned about the emotional energy being expressed through imagery is exactly why anime is so great sometimes, the japanese anime film, A Silent Voice, gives a really good example. near the end, the main character, who had basically shut himself off from the world begins to open himself up to the world again. in the film his connection being cut-off is built around the fact that to him, people's faces are blocked off with giant x marks on their heads, which also symbolises his tendency to even avoid looking at people directly in the face/eye which is also shown in the film. anyways, at the end, he covers his ears, because he's also "cut off" the sound of the outside world, and he slowly lifts his face, and drops his hands, at the same time the x marks on everyone's face around him falls off like a piece of paper, floating on the wind, and the moment is accentuated by the music lifting up to a crescendo of "victory" or joy, and the sound of the actual crowd around him also comes into focus, creating a cacophony of sound showcasing him reconnecting with the world around him in sooooo many different ways, showcasing his metaphorical mental and emotional changes, its honestly an incredibly brilliant piece of art.

  • Speed Racer made my child hood, and I still love the movie. Call it nostalgia, but I genuinely love the way the movie works. It has so much power and emotion in it, and at the very end race scene? I still remember when Speed punches it full throttle, and absolutely destroys the color spectrum. Amazing movie, I recommend it if you have a movie night.

  • I never really bought into the "visionary" label of the wachowskis until I watched speed racer. It was so stunningly well realised with so many amazing visual ideas it was beyond how films were "supposed" to be made. I hate how this film isn't available in 4K...

I think opinions on Speed Racer are changing to a more positive light. The movie did not do well when it came out, which is a shame, because it is really good. I loved it as a kid, and still do! There are fans that are asking for a 4k rerelease of Speed Racer, I’d be so up for that!
