Best Minority View

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.

Stop it. You seriously liked Daredevil?? I don't believe you. How can someone like FNL (evidence of perfect TV/movie taste) like Daredevil? :)

I know, it's hard to explain. People talk about it like it was the worst movie ever made, I sat there and I enjoyed it. Thoroughly. Start to finish. That's just how it was.

But here's something...

Jason Street is in Speed Racer. When he popped up on screen I shot out of my seat, pointed and yelled "That's Jason Street!"

Watched At the Movies last night. And Richard Roeper and Michael Phillips both really liked it, too. So if it's a minority at least we're in good company.

Good to know. I think I'll have to go see that.

Thanks for the heads up

I think you would have liked Iron Man better if you didn't watch the previews.
