Time Magazine Wants To Make Me Violent!!!

December 8, 2008

I rarely care about or put much stock in any list coming from a major publication, but I have to call shenanigans on Time’s Ten Best Films of 2008. Arguably, most of the films are more than deserving of acclaim, but how in blue perfect hell does Speed Racer get a spot on the list, while The Dark Knight is conspicuously absent? On the one hand, you’ve got not just one of the best comic book films of all time, but one of the best films in a generation, overall. From the action to the drama, to Heath Ledger’s career-defining performance, the film is a remarkable achievement. On the other hand, Speed Racer is sugar-frosted fuckery of the highest order. If there’s anything groundbreaking about the film, it’s that it actually gave my eyes cavities!
