Speed Racer (DVD) (WS)
The Wachowski Brothers bring a classic anime to the big screen: Matthew Fox, John Goodman, Christina Ricci and Susan Sarandon star with Emile Hirsch as Speed Racer! Fearlessly hurtling down the track, careening around, over and through the competition in his thundering Mach 5, Speed Racer was born to race cars. But when Speed turns down a lucrative offer from Royalton Industries, he not only infuriates the company's maniacal owner but uncovers a terrible secret--some of the biggest races are being fixed by a handful of ruthless moguls! The only way for Speed to save his family's business and the sport he loves is to beat Royalton at his own game. With the support of his family and his loyal girlfriend, Trixie, Speed teams with his one-time rival the mysterious Racer X to win the race that took his brother, Rex Racer's, life: the death-defying, cross-country rally known as The Crucible]]>

I've read that Warner Home Video wanted to keep the Speed Racer BR to a single-layer disc, so they cheaped out on HD sound to maximize the picture quality. The movie was already shot in HD, and that's why the transfer is near-flawless if not completely so.
Some users at Blu-ray's official forum... Read More

|Sprittle or Jar Jar Binks:Most annoying movie sidekick?||
Jar Jar hands down. Spritle & Chim Chim were like the animation counterparts so can't really complain. Jar Jar absolutely ruined the film along with Jake Lloyd. Phantom Menace and and the other 2 films could have been so much better...
