Crash (just saw the movie)
    #4256958 - 06/04/05 08:40 PM (11 years, 6 months ago)

and it was fucking awesome. I urge everyone to go see it. The lighting, cinematography, acting and plot were amazing. This is the best movie I have seen this year, and probably even last year.

It is all about racism, but not your average movie about racism. It doesnt stretch and struggle to make its points, and everything clicks so nicely in place. Much like 13 conversations about one thing, but that one thing is racism. It makes a very profound statement about how hating someone for being a racist is the same as being a racist, and it makes that point in you as you watch the movie, not in the characters.

written by the guy who did million dollar baby I believe. I will rent it when it comes on DVD, because the only movies i am willing to pay the 11$ for these days are the visually appealing epic-types (i.e. star wars episode 3)

7.5/10? what are some movies that you have given a 9 or 10 before?

*Note: for anyone who hasn't seen the movie and plans to.. stop reading.. I will ruin part of it for you.

Anyway, I really liked the part where the young cop kills the young black guy right after saving the life of the guy in the SUV. You could kind of see it coming but it made the best point of the movie about unconscious constructs we hold. But a lot of the rest of the movie felt like it was reaching somehow.. great acting though.

Aside.. I hated "Million Dollar Baby". I don't hate many things, but I hate Clint Eastwood and I could feel his stamp all over this movie aside from his standard standard character which has less variation than even Tom Cruise. Plus, I couldn't believe how long they dragged out the part where Clint Eastwood euthanizes the girl. Making him struggle over the decision for so long. For one, its a no brainer.. kill her because she wants to die. 2- I hate to think about how most of us will reach a point in our life where our body starts to decay and the best thing to do is just kill yourself... We're all just organisms that will probably live too long for what is good for us through "medical marvels." Plus.. I like movies that play with different emotions, but this movie was too predictable and one dimensional to have such a sad ending.

I never once felt like the movie was reaching. In fact, in my previous post, i applauded it for not ever having to reach to make its points.
The acting was amazing, even sandra bullock kicked ass. I bet a shitload of nominations will come from this one movie. Luckily, Brendan Frasier only had about 4 lines (that dude sucks and blows at the same time).

A Clockwork Orange... American Beauty... 2001: A Space Odyssey... the entire Lord of the Rings... Pulp Fiction... The 1st Matrix movie... The Big Lebowski...

Don't get me wrong. I thought Crash was a good movie... maybe even 8/10.. it just wasn't as awesome (to me) as the movies listed above.  :cool:
