Peter Fernandez, who provided the voice for the Speed Racer character in the U.S. version of the animated series, "SPEED RACER" back in the 1960s; had passed away from lung cancer, four days ago on July 15, 2010. He was 83 years old. Read more...Collapse )

Today I heard that they got the rights to do an American version of Death Note and I've been thinking about this lately. There's a bunch of live-action anime movies that are supposed to be Americanized and I'm kind of curious why. It all started after Speed Racer. That was supposed to open the door for them. But Speed Racer did horribly. Despite the cult following, it didn't make back the money they spent on it. So why didn't most of the studios drop the projects after seeing how unsuccessful those films do here? I don't think the Dragonball Z film did as great as they expected either.

Anybody have an idea as to how Hollywood thinks? ;)

Despite the fact that I own the DVD--I just turned Speed Racer on because it was on a movie channel. Turns out it happened to be an HD channel and it's gorgeous. As geeky as this sounds, the colors are so vivid that my eyes actually started to tear up. Even now I find myself being stunned by the visuals as if I've never seen this movie before. As if I'm tuning in for the first time.

So, I guess what I'm trying to say is if you haven't seen the movie in HD...do yourself a favor and watch it. It's a whole new experience. (And I'm only 5 minutes in. ;))


Here is my LIST of my top ten (10) favorite movies released in 2008.


I've just seen the Academy Awards nominations list. Disgusted, as usual. Movies like "IRON-MAN" and "THE DARK KNIGHT" receive visual effects nods, but not "SPEED RACER". Like I said . . . disgusted.

Goddamn Racer X
If there was a sequel and Emile wasn't in it, would you still see the movie? They definitely set us up for a sequel with the whole Cruncher Block/Mammoth Car storyline, but because of the poor ratings I don't think it'll happen. Even if it does, Emile fired his agent after Speed Racer so it's probably safe to assume that he wouldn't be back on board.

So, would you want to see it if Speed was played by a different actor?
