By "not working for you" do you mean it's not playing or it causes very little excitement for the film?

Haha!
Well, I meant "not playing" but I think I prefer your alternate meaning now.
I'm unable to get the thing to load properly, so I was wondering if everyone else was having the same problem. I figure it's not loading for me because I'm at work.

I got it to play. And I wasn't all that excited by it (but then again, I have no sort of connection to Speed Racer. Weep for me.).

Then I got all kinds of excited because I thought that that was Crispin Hellion Glover as Racer X. Then I realized it was just Matthew Fox.

So... square one, I guess.

Alright, I was not getting your excitement over this movie, until now. That looks 4-color fantastic!

I mean, okay, the acting looks pretty stiff, but Hugh Jackman seems to be the only guy capable of acting through the Wachowski Bros' direction, so no surprises there. I just hope the whole movie is about 90 more minutes of the trailer's over-saturated, over-edited pop craziness.

John Goodman and Susan Sarandon are fun casting, but I agree that Crispin Glover would have been much more heartening than Matthew Fox.

Joel - Hugh Jackman?

From everything I've heard I think 90-120 minutes of visual insanity is what we can expect, and that excites me greatly.
I'm beginning to think that a FOURTH WORLD movie could possibly be in the realm of possible possibilities now.

Joel Priddy said...

Oy! Hugo Weaving! How the hell did I type "Hugh Jackman?"

It's funny you mention the Fourth World. I was just thinking that it would make a great opera.

So, we have a pitch the Wachowski's first musical.

Joel - Hugo Weaving as Metron.

We're going to be so very rich.
