Apparently Speed Racer is awful and Speed Racer is a bomb, but I went and saw it in IMAX with Matt and Emily Saturday afternoon and had a great time. When I read terrible reviews of this movie I cannot relate to anything the critics are saying, I simply feel the opposite about whatever they say. I thought it was exciting, I thought it was cool, I thought it was creative, I thought it was fun. I loved the races, I loved the not races, I loved the fights, I loved the characters, I loved the cast, I loved the snippet of Freebird, I dug it all. I'm definitely more amped about Speed Racer than I was about Iron Man. That's just how it is. I cannot explain it.
I also really liked Daredevil. Go figure.
