I'm not passive aggressive. I'm aggressively passive.
It's true, the stills from the Wachowskis brothers' new Speed Racer (starring Christina Ricci) do look like some sort of completely new form of animation-cum-live-action. UPDATE: the trailer.
This is totally the way to make movies now. I haven't actually seen Beowulf yet, but in general I think its approach -- continuing down the path of slavish devotion to pixel-perfect realism -- is the wrong one. Better to go for decoupaged hyper-reality a la 300 or (it appears) Speed Racer. (Yes, decoupaged!)

Who needs the stills? You can see the trailer here: www.speedracerthemovie.com

Maybe I'm retarded, but I don't think there's a trailer on that website.

No but there is a trailer here -
And it's pretty amazing.
The Wachowskis the most exciting filmmakers of our time? Did I really just write that?

I mean, I don't even know if that's animation, CGI, or whatever-all I know is that I wanna see this movie, like, now. and I have to agree with Gavin- the Wachowski brothers are insanely innovative and talented

My bad. I had gotten the link confused with the AOL movie site.
