Go Speed Racer Go

Some Speed Racer Love

In my various geeky wanderings I happened upon YouTuber "Digibro," whose channel is all about in-depth studies of anime, both of specific series, and of the relationship between anime and western animation, the cultural divide, and so forth. There's a lot of interesting stuff there! But he also posted "Speed Racer (2008)– My Favorite Superhero Cartoon," for which I just want to give him a giant hug. Please watch.

He also pointed out, which I didn't know, that Film Crit Hulk included Speed Racer as one of his favorite movies. This made my little fandom heart go squee.

So yeah. Speed Racer really WAS that good. Suck it, all you critics who pronounced it DOA.

  • Sat, 17:18: RT @mg4h: Whatever the hell you are doing right now, stop it and go see Ghostbusters. Seriously. It's funny :)
  • Sat, 17:29: I’m told there is a local GB cosplay/fandom club w/ “official charter” from the studio and all that, but they are boycotting. Seriously? -.-
  • Sat, 17:29: 1) WTF is wrong with you idiots? and 2) How is that “official charter” not instantly revoked by sabotaging the studio’s efforts?
  • Sat, 17:32: Y’know what? I’ll happily keep enjoying awesome things with my totally unofficial charter, thanks.
  • Sat, 17:33: If you manbabies want to stay home and soak in your own juices, it’s your loss. We had a great time.
  • Sat, 17:36: I don’t like the new Star Trek movies and will happily say so, but I wouldn’t sit around “trying to make them fail." https://t.co/Y1MkBvxyrk
