sign_of_Zeta: Speed Racer was no masterpiece but it was exactly what a Speed Racer movie should have been.  I thoroughly enjoyed the movie, and in fact, I am going to go buy it today.  Thanks subby.


I did too. I thought it was a fun and entertaining watch. The camera angles and effects were awesome and Christina Ricci looked amazing in that movie. Top it off with john Goodman as pops and a crazy monkey up to crazy antics. Sign me up for a sequel right now.

Also thought john carter was much better than most people gave it credit for.

Gleeman: Speed Racer wasn't bad at all, if you viewed it as a live action cartoon with cartoon physics.

/more like a NONja


If you liked Speed Racer (or if you didn't, but like the idea of a hyper-kinetic racing animated movie) you should check out Redline.

Already own it. When I recommend it to friends/family  I say that it is 50% 'Beyond the Impossible', 50% awesome and 50% testosterone.

Hebalo: DjangoStonereaver: Car_Ramrod: I liked Cowboys & Aliens...

It did have at least one redeeming feature:

Olivia Wilde nude is always a selling point, even if it is only implied.

So sad. People get excited about the thought of nudity to the point that becomes a positive argument for a super huge piece of shiat movie?


With that I would have to wonder if you even saw the movie. It might not have been the biggest blockbuster of the year, but it was far from being a piece of shiat.

Slaves2Darkness: yves0010: Speed Racer was awesome! My nephew and I watch it all the time. Saw it in theaters day 1 and bought the DvD day 1 as well. Then again, I have always been a Speed Racer fan so that would be no surprise. I want another Speed Racer movie. It was very well done and kept the campiness of the original show.

Exactly. It's like the people biatching about the Speed Racer movie never ever saw the horrible one dimensional cartoon that my 8 year old self loved. I mean honestly the cartoon was crap, utter and complete crap, and you had to be a little boy to enjoy it.

The movie was fun, but Susan Sarandon and John Goodman make that movie into something that was awesome.


thatguyoverthere70: I'm in the Speed Racer fan club too. I thought it was a great movie, and I'm pretty picky. It has great visuals and each of the races are fun. Come on, any movie with a beehive catapult should get an automatic pass.

Beehive. Catapult.

And it has an extended flash forward. That's something you just don't see in movies, pretty much ever.

I'll have to bust out the movie tonight too. Subby is inspiring!


This This This. I thought they did a fantastic job translating the cartoon into live action.

FeedTheCollapse: Skyline demands a recount


for what's it worth, maybe it's because it got really bad reviews, but I didn't think Skyline was that bad; probably a bit too presumptuous that it would get a sequel, though.



THIS.

Master and Commander is pretty fine film.

I liked it.  It's not what I consider a great film, but it's decent enough for an alien invasion film.

Daniel Craig and Harrison Ford were especially good in it.   Remove the aliens from the film, and people would think it was an excellent western.

MithrandirBooga: bungle_jr: also, listing a movie that was released THIS YEAR in a listicle about being spared a sequel? come on! they could be working on a sequel that we haven't even heard of yet!

Lone Ranger bombed so hard it may have repercussions on Johnny Depp's career. There's no way there's going to be a sequel. It lost almost $200m


I think LR could be 'fixed' by cutting out all the stupid jar jaresque scenes like the horse in the tree. What's left would be better. Maybe not good, but I doubt it would've bombed so hard.

the issue with skyline was that they blew the budget on effects and ignored the fact that you need decent acting to make the effects look convincing.

it was a decent invasion movie.  Battle:LA and Battleship were both better at that tho.

The only movie on that list that I wish had a sequel is Master & Commander.  Excellent movie.

What, because I disagree with your opinion of the movie, I can't possibly have seen it? I did. It was bad...like stinky, awful bad. Like, I'm glad I didn't pay to see this bad. I had high hopes, but they were quickly quashed.

Master and Commander was great and had a great score to boot, mostly classical pieces mixed with some tribal and original.   Was never clear on why there wasn't a sequel, but the article explains it pretty well.

To me it felt like a more old school film, using suspense and what you don't see as the main plot elements, rather than showy CGI that is obvious.
