Jason watches "Speed Racer"
Because I felt like seeing lots of bright colors on an IMAX screen. And it delivered that. And I suppose if you bother to care what's going on it's not really a bad movie. There's some sort of plot where Speed--as the independent family racer--can take down the corrupt business leaders of the World Racing League by winning the Grand Prix. But this is more about excessive sensory overload than story. And if that's what you want, that's what you get. And I assume it's better if you know all the characters. I vaguely remember them from watching the cartoon a few times years (or decades) ago. As far as I can tell, they get them right, but I'm no expert.
