It's been a very long time since I last posted anything, I know.  I guess I've just been continuing with the job-hunt and spending time with my family.  This past weekend I went through the Commencement ceremony and all that jazz back at CSUF.  It was good to see everyone but boy was it HOT!

Anyway, to my point.  I've been kind of upset with critics and box office performance lately.  I'm sure most everyone saw and loved Iron Man, which I must admit was a damn good movie but I'm sure very few people saw Speed Racer.  Personally, I loved Speed Racer much much more than Iron man.  "Why?" you might ask...
The Mach 5...  I rest my case.

Now I can understand people saying it was too long, it was a bit lengthy, but I honestly can't think of anything that could have been left out.  I thoroughly enjoyed the story, the characters were FAR more lovable and interesting than Robert Downey Jr. playing his usual coked up lovable douchebag self and the action scenes were astonishing.  The colors were a little overbearing at first, but it was easy to get used to them, and emerging from the theatre and into the drab real world was a little heart-wrenching.  First and foremost though, the cars were SO RAD!

Now, I'm not saying Speed should have beaten out Iron Man in the box office, because Iron man WAS good, but it should have at LEAST beat out What Happens in Vegas...  come on people!
