Richard Corliss Curiously Bestows Speed Racer With a Spot on His Top Ten

Martin Klimas's Amaryllis IV (2007)

Although the practice of throwing a wild card into year-end top-ten lists as a means to assert one's individuality is a tradition as old as time for film critics, Vulture is of the opinion that Time's Richard Corliss might just have crossed over a line in the sands of coolness by including the universally panned Speed Racer on his list. Don't get it twisted: We thought the movie's stoner-friendly visuals were sumptuous (especially on Blu-Ray), but the last time we checked, Time and High Times hadn't (yet) merged. [Time]
