    I was so shocked that Crash did so well, to be honest. It was really some of the worse acting I've seen in a while....and that is saying a lot. The story line was terrible, I honestly hoped when I saw that movie..it would be amazing. I was so damn disappointed, and actually wanted a refund!

    I forgot how unpopular Crash was around here.

    I liked it, though. It was a little heavy-handed and preachy at times, but still a good movie.

    Sandra Bullock: "I was just... so... so... polite to them because they were black, because that would be racist otherwise. And then they go and rob me, those f**king n***ers!"

    Yeah, real sympathetic stuff. Didn't she slip down the stairs and blame the black man who was fixing their front door? I guess if I ever wear slippery socks and tumble down some stairs I'll have to take the matter all the way to Taiwan...

    edit: Actually no, I want to go on. I enjoy picking on it.

    The whole movie was odd. Like that girl got shot but because she was ethnic... gasp!... the bullet couldn't hurt her! The bullet didn't want to be called racist!

    And the whole movie everything was spelled out, sort of like Julie Meyer's acting in Desperate Housewives. "SAD.

    HAPPY.

    CONCERNED.

    ANGRY.
    "

    Sigh I wish I could explain that better. Trust me, it makes sense in my head.

    ^I get it. I know what you mean.

    The little girl didn't get shot because there was blanks in the gun.

    The scene with Thandie Newton and Matt Dillon in the car wreck was fantastic. Especially when she starts going mental on him. I hated the scene with Ryan Phillippe and the black guy he picks up and gets worked up for no reason because he thinks the black guy is laughing at him; I didn't get that, what a paranoid fucker. The guy said a hundred times 'I'M NOT LAUGHING AT YOU' too. That scene was just stupid. Ryan Phillippe's character was more unlikeable than Dillon's racist prick.

    Happy Evil Dude, I agree with you about Crash!!
    Giovanni Ribisi, just seeing this guys name in the credits will cause me to turn away from the movie. I can't think of another actor that gets on my nerves as much as him.
    No Country For Old Men, I thought it was good and I knew to expect some weird Sh!t simply because it's a Coen brothers movie. The writing and dialogue is brilliant. I can't say Bardems acting was any better than Josh Brolin or Tommy Lee Jones though.

    Add me to those who hated Crash. I understood that the characters were meant to be seen as symbols, really and that's why the script was so unbelievable (like the same cop who had felt up Thandie Newton's character would be the one to get her out of the car...). I just didn't buy it. Ryan Philippe's character intrigued me. I think he was a closet homosexual and the whole thing with the guy he picked up just messed him up more inside and that's why he killed him. I'm not sure how I got to that conclusion while watching the movie but I got that vibe.

    ^Yeah i didn't get why Thandie Newton was so upset. I wouldn't be if I had Matt Dillon's fingers in me. OK, inappropriate I know. I'm an asshole for that comment.


    Anyway...

    I just suffered through Pledge This; curiosity got the better of me. And I think I've got fewer brain cells after watching that. Parisite is SO lame, SO SO lame. "We are the hottest sorority ever!" Oh! Oh!" I spent the whole movie wishing I had a frying pan to smack her (and Simon Rex) with. But the fact they do close ups of her face like it's supposed to be a thing of beauty never failed to amuse.

    We watched two things last night.

    First we watched The Hitcher, the remake. I loved the original. This one, expectedly, didn't stand up to the first AT ALL. However, I'm not going to knock it completely, it kept me entertained enough. Wasn't terribly bad, and I like stupid horror movies. My husband kept rolling his eyes at the ending though.

    Then we watched Revolver. Not as good as LS&TSB or Snatch but I still enoyed it, it was more of a psychological film. The direction was phenomenal. Probably not one I would see again though, whereas I could watch Snatch over and over. Jason Statham proved himself to be a better actor than originally suspected, the elevator scene towards the end was pretty damn good.

    last movie i watched was 'bird's nest - herzog & de meuron in china', about the 2 swiss architects that designed the new national stadium in beijing for the olympics. great documentary. started a thread about it for all the architecture lovers here: For the architecture buffs: Herzog & De Meuron in China

    Welcome Home Roscoe Jenkins. It had some funny moments, but it wasn't that great.

    Dude your post is so full of inanities I don't even know how to respond. For your information I'm not trying to pass 8th grade lit when on GR and on a side note literary subjects have always been my strongest back in school allowing me not only to pass, but kick ass. Yes I'm praised for my writing and I obviously don't spend hours figuring out what my lead character should do when posting on an Internet forum. However fellow rockers generally appreciate it when I go on a little funny skit of fiction, which I do from time to time. Anyway it's obvious that you think your shit don't stink and since you're so smart every movie is pedestrian and lame why don't you go and worship your cock or whatever it is you cool kids do these days.

    PS: Hey you forgot to mention the "aboots" don't cha know?

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------

    I'd like to give a shout-out to Raspberry Gashes, S&R's Mom and Kingcap72...Really you guys are great, give yourselves a raise!

    Anyway, more on Crash here (may contain spoilers if you haven't seen the film):
    Crash is not a movie about racism, racism is only a part of that movie. Though racism plays throughout the movie, only two characters are truly "about" racism. The Matt Dillon and Ryan Phillippe ones.And it was pretty much the point that Ryan ended up more unlikable than Matt. As I said the movie isn't about racism, it's about character. Who we are, who are others? Who do we think we are, who are we really, who do we pretend to be, who do we think others are, who are those people really and who are those people pretending to be? Obviously the girl didn't die because the gun was filled with blanks, unbeknowst to the Iranian dude, because those were the bullets his daughter bought at the beginning of the film. The belief that they weren't blanks however affects the Iranian deeply, as seen by his closing dialogue. Sandra Bullock was an angry bitch BEFORE slipping down the stairs and realizing who the people around her really were. Matt Dillon is a racist because he loves his father but it is overt racism and deep down he's a good person. Ryan Phillippe however pretends to be a "good person" but is actually 100% insecure and prejudiced. Etc, etc... This obviously doesn't even come close to scratching the surface of a very deeply layered movie, but hey I have other things to do. If you did like it, I'm glad you were able to appreciate it, if you didn't, well too bad, better luck next time. This is one movie I can't understand how you can just downright dismiss every part of however.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Anyway, I went to see August Rush, at the cinema => A bucket full of cheese all right, but they forgot to mix in the cotton candy. It's obviously predictable as hell, and doesn't really bring anything to the table. It's technically conventional and the performances are ok, all the actors have done more interesting jobs elsewhere. And for a movie which centers around music so much the main theme by Mark Mancina & Hans Zimmer is allright, but certainly not spectacular (ok, maybe it is for a 12 year old). Alexandre Desplat's & Aaron Zigman's theme to Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium blows it out of the water. Actually Magorium blows August Rush out of the water, period.

    Also, Saboteur (1942), by Alfred Hitchcock, at home => Really good. A classic "wrongfully accused" film which still holds really well, in both story, mood and visuals. Not much more to say about it. Great film.
