I went to see The Golden Compass this weekend. It was a fun and entertaining movie, but nothing special. Check out Craig Outhier’s movie review for more. The highlight of the movie was seeing the trailer for the new Wachowski Brothers picture, 1960’s Japanese animated cartoon turned live action adventure movie Speed Racer. I don’t know much about the Speed Racer cartoon, but what I do know is that the Wachowski Brothers make excellent movies (V for Vendetta, The Matrix, Bound) and I’m sure this will be no different. The cast is solid, featuring actors Emile Hirsh, Christina Ricci, Susan Sarandon and John Goodman, and the NEW TRAILER looks freakin’ sweet. Speed Racer zooms into theaters on May 9.
