My Gritty Day/Night Off

I watched Crash. This movie had it all – a terrific concept with a great storyline and magnificent acting.

But it sucked, and that’s a real shame. Could have been done a lot better. When you combine social commentary and gritty realism with implausible situations and unrealistic character reaction, what you’ll get is something in which I’ll lose interest every fifteen minutes or so.

Then I watched The Da Vinci Code and learned that cinematic mediocrity is a relative concept.

Now I would like to file a lawsuit in order to recover these four hours.
