You know that….when….

You know you have been watching too much anime when you are watching Star Trek and you keep expecting the characters to bow.

I went to the public library tonight to see if I could get in on the Anime on the Edge meeting. Well I was not allowed because I’m over 24 and the meeting was for 18-24 year olds.  So I was directed to Adult services so I could request a program for us oldsters and when I asked the lady at the desk she gave me a look.  What a look!, like I had two heads and a tail.  She said she has never had a request for an adult anime group and does;’t think it is needed and I said there probably are more people than she thinks interested just they haven’t bothered to ask.  OH WELL.  I guess I’m SOL on this one.

Speed Racer

I posted this on MTV Movie Blog

Well I sure don’t work for any branch of the movie industry. I and my family LOVED Speed Racer. My hubby was glad that they kept the ‘cartoony’ aspect and didn’t try to make it too real. I think they did a good job with casting. I’m no Matrix fan either but the script worked for this story very well. It was true to its roots while still being updated and 21st century. We made sure our 11 year old had a background in the original cartoon before we took her too. But I don’t think it would have been necessary for her to enjoy it. If people don’t understand the action or the plot they are either dumb as bricks or trying to see what isn’t there. It was supposed to be fun and it was. I can’t see how it was a @@@* of the original either when the original was all campy and flash to begin with. It isn’t so much a racing movie as it is ‘kung-fu’ with cars. My daughter who dosn’t like very much and never wants to see anything again was bugging to see it again as we walked out of the theater. The bottom line is ‘never listen to the critics’ , they’re idiots.
