I purchased Speed Racer this morning. I didn’t have a chance to watch it until Lucian got home. Just like when I saw it in the theater, it made me feel like a five year old on a candy binge. The electric lights and loud noises only wanted me to turn the volume higher. It was visual audio crack.
I was hooked to the entire movie. Every long scene. Everything was a wonderful little second.
It got to the point where my son and I were sitting in the same position. My wife started to laugh at the wrong place. I looked at her and she pointed out that he and I were sitting in the same position. There we were glued to the television. Five feet from each other and just looking like Forrest Gump and junior watching television.
I don’t know what it is, but watching Speed Racer makes me smile afterwards and like the world is all right.
