Why was it bad? Five questions for the pair who made Speed Racer.

Title is self explanatory.

 

What were you going for with the colour scheme? Usually when things have such an unusual colour scheme they do so with a specific goal in mind. For example, Pushing Daisies saturates everything to help add the feeling that it’s a fairytale show despite the corpses, and Sweeney Todd makes everything dull and grey except for blood because that’s how life is for the titular character, he can only get satisfaction from killing. But I can’t see much point in making everything neon in your movie, it was interesting, but didn’t even look that good, certainly not the money you must have spent on it. Why did you decide to make everything look the way it did?

 

I get that the little brother and the monkey were supposed to be comic relief. All their scenes feel like they were written in five seconds, with no thought given as to making them actually funny, instead just expecting the audience to laugh at any old wacky antic. Also, they didn’t fit into the rest of the plot at all, and oh yeah, I was constantly getting an urge to chop his head off, because he was just that irritaiting. So uh, how long did you spend writing their jokes and did they have some purpose other than comic relief that I missed?

 

So, there was that thing with Racer X. You know, the thing where he’s actually Rex, then he isn’t, then he is again, then he isn’t, then he is, then he isn’t, then he is, then he isn’t, then he is, then he isn’t, then he is, then he isn’t, then he is, then he isn’t, then he is, then he isn’t, then he is, then he isn’t, then he is, then he isn’t, then he is, then he isn’t, then he is, then he isn’t, then he is, then he isn’t, then he is, then he isn’t, then he is, then he isn’t, then he is, then he isn’t, then he is… I’m sure you get the idea. Could you make up your bleedin’ minds?

 

So uh, when Little Speed asked Little Trixie if she wanted to see his car collection, was that an euphanism? Maybe I have a dirty mind, but it did kinda sound like one.

Seriously, what the fuck was up with the floating head wipes? By the final race they were literally being used every five seconds. Giant floating heads flying across the screen gets really annoying when they’re constantly being used for TWO FUCKING HOURS. Is there a flying head fetish that one of you two is hiding?
