I hate the film Crash. It is a terrible movie. I’ve repeatedly seen people on this board express the opinion that people dislike Crash because it was awarded the Oscar over Brokeback Mountain. The latest was in this thread http://boards.straightdope.com/sdmb/showthread.php?t=541035
Where RealityChuck writes “Batman and Crash: the criticism of them is generally based on the fact that there is another good film they’re compared to, with the false assumption that they can’t both be good films. Both Batman and The Dark Knight are excellent film, as are Crash and Brokeback Mountain, but many people can’t hold that concept in their heads.”
I’m putting an end to this. I have never seen Brokeback Mountain. I think Crash is a terrible film. It’s been a while since I’ve seen it but some of my major complaints are:
Gee wiz, did you know that people who aren’t white can be racist! Did you know that a racist person can have other redeeming attributes! Thank you Crash, for enlightening me.
That Persian guy who shot the blank, not knowing it was a blank, at the Mexican locksmith, congratulations, that’s attempted murder. You should be arrested. Oh and the Persian girl who gave her dad the blanks not telling him they weren’t real bullets, great way to get your dad killed.
Matt Dillon’s cop character who groped the black women then saved her from the car crash should be fired from being a cop and arrested. You don’t get a free grope because your dad is sick, and this behavior should never be tolerated even a little bit from a police officer.
So join me Dopers! Who here thinks Crash sucked and doesn’t base their opinion on any sort of comparison to Brokeback Moutain? Crash lovers feel free to comment as well. Normally I’d have prejudice against you Crash lovers, but Crash taught me to that you can’t judge individuals based on their group. Unless they’re Chinese, because the Chinese are slave traders who can’t drive.
