I feel the same about this movie. I'm not sure if I feel as harshly but I understand how you can be pissed about someone having an amazing budget and not to get something mind blowing. I'm curious to know how you felt about the new Speed. I thought it was amazing artistically.

Check out this Spielberg quote for a sad admission that it's all about the money: "I just want to hear one number, which is the Monday-morning number" (http://www.imdb.com/news/ni0242026).

It's fine if the filmmakers want to ruin their brand, but the insulting thing is that they think the audience is too dumb to notice. I haven't seen Speed Racer but from the trailers I can tell that the Wachowskis are at least making an effort on some level.

Frank Darabont (Shawshank, Green Mile etc) wrote an early script for Crystal Skull but it was rejected. Apparenly Spielberg liked it but Lucas didn't. I'm sure it would have made for a much better film though.
