I was referring to how everyone can sit around and ballyhoo the social statement and talk about how Crash is enlightening and a move for progress. Everyone gets to feel good because we'll all better people for having seen it.


I agree with the second point you made here: that it's a feel good movie in the sense that Hollywood can sit there and pat itself on the back on a 'look, we're addressing racism' tip. But I disagree with the first part of your post. The movie basically ends with the least-despicable character in the whole film being murdered by the character who we thought was least-despicable until said murder, and subsequent cover-up took place.

6 of 7. Very surpised Clooney won BSA over Gyllenhaal, Dillon and Giamatti. William Hurt didn't have much of a chance.

BTW nice pick on King Kong for Achievment in Sound Editing, Tavish. :-D

Hey, hey! Alright for Crash. I know you didn't like it, Amazinz, but I put it right behind Batman Begins as my second-favorite movie last year.

Wonder why Batman Begins didn't get nominated for anything... :-? ;-7 :-D

I can't take all the credit. I was given some Hollywood insider info and it made picking that category the easiest of the bunch. ;-D

No biggie. I'm used to disagreeing with the Academy. Anyway I didn't dislike Crash believe it or not. It's a good movie and Sandra Bullock is the blow-away performance that nodbody talks about. My beef with Crash is that I feel the subject of racism is the only thing that makes it Oscar-worthy. I have no problem with Oscars being given for social commentary in the guise of a movie but I think it should be saved for the gems such as Taxi Driver, etc.

Zing. You have what Dr. Phil would call a critical spirit. O:-)

And you don't think the only thing that made Brokeback Mountain Oscar-worthy was the fact that it was about two gay cowboys? Of the few people I know who have seen it, they said even if you could get past the fact that it was about gay cowboys, it wasn't that good of a movie. Much better love stories out there. I haven't seen it (and don't really care to), and from the accounts I've heard I'm not missing much.
