You know, I wasn't all that impressed with the stills. I hope the final product is better.

The League said...

well, with 24 stills per second over 90 minutes, you will have many to choose from.

I'm not too impressed, either. It seems like they're trying to be too literal in terms of translating the look of the cartoon to film. I have a feeling it's going to be CG laden, overly stylized, and hyper frenetic.

The League said...

From the Matrix guys? I find that hard to believe...

Steanso said...

...and most disturbingly, it's going to be brightly colored.

The League said...

You were expecting a moody, Batman-like Speed Racer?

I'm wating for the moment the Architect explains the Racer X -> Speed connection.
