‘Guilty Pleasures’ Addition: Speed Racer


[ 38% |  31%]

A young driver, Speed Racer, aspires to be champion of the racing world with the help of his family and his high-tech Mach 5 automobile.

This movie was trashed by the box offices, critics, and most of my friends. But I stand firm in my belief that this is on of the better movies of the past few years. Although the story is pretty shallow, it is fun and has a lot of spirit in it, which goes well with the absolutely beautiful ‘cotton candy’ visuals of the film. Emile HirschSusan SarandonJohn GoodmanMatthew Fox, and Roger Allam are all perfect for their roles, and I just think this is one hell of an entertaining movie.
