763) Crash. I get that it's supposed to be twisted and shocking, but it was laughably so and then, after about 30 minutes, it was just boring and stupid. HATE.

764) The Battle of Rogue River. I've gotten to where I don't like cavalry pictures anymore. I'm more of a gunslingers and sheriffs kind of guy. Still, a western is a western.

764 down, 236 to go.

- Wanna see something awesome?

Crash was dumb as shit. I hate when people try to pass movies like that off as "deep" or "artistic" just because it's about someone's freaky kink.

i kind of want to read the book because the only one of ballard's i've read (concrete island) was great and i have to imagine the movie played up the sex more than the book. but probably i won't, i've got a stack taller than me waiting already. i can't wait to read again!

Yeah, I've been reading like mad since my son has been with his grandparents. Just posted a book review btw.

Oh yeah, thanks for letting me know I'm apparently the only person on earth that photobucket is screwing up for!

Crash was idiotically bad.

Especially Matt Dillon. I hate that guy.

I thought this year's Crash was pretty good. Matt Dillon wasn't asked to act or anything, and Don Cheadle and Terrence Howard carried the load. I can't believe you were even tempted to watch Cronenberg's Crash, Todd. It was universally slammed, and it seems like something you DEFINITELY wouldn't like based on your other reactions.

see i didn't know it was universally slammed. i thought it was supposed to be a good movie and, like i said, i had enjoyed the only book by ballard i've read and since this was an adaptation of another one of his books i thought i'd give it a shot. you're right, it's definitely something i wouldn't like. yeah, i liked this years crash. i actually have a weird relationship with matt dillon. i've liked a ton of movies he's been in but i don't really like him.
