Have you thought about the Speed Racer movie lately?

Because I have, I say as my head spins around and the next scene of the movie pours from my mouth.

I don't think it's the greatest thing the Wackowskis have ever done, but it's probably unfairly underrated.

Found the Jupiter Ascending fan.

Sure, it's tonally inconsistent (is it a goofy cartoony kids movie or an edgier take on an old classic? Why not both! No problem here!) but darned if it ain't pretty and it's a ton of fun. If you gotta fill a room with bright colors for a couple hours, you can't do any better. You could make a case for Redline or End of Eva (for a certain segment of the population) serving the same purpose - gorgeous visuals without much plot, something to overwhelm the senses.

Ha! No, it would be probably Cloud Atlas or the original Matrix.
