In Defence of Speed Racer

Join Ian, Will and Wend for the second episode of “In Defence of” where they defend and discuss the 2008 Warner Brothers film directed by The Wachowskis, Speed Racer, and it’s wonderfully adventurous and imaginative score by Michael Giacchino. Based on the Japanese animation Mach GoGoGo, this poorly-received film faced tough competition upon release and hopefully we can persuade all you lovely listeners out there to rewatch and reconsider your opinion of this beautifully-made and visually-stunning movie!
