MOVIE: Crash

DIRECTOR: Paul Haggis


Crash is an Academy Award-winning drama film directed by Paul Haggis. It premiered at the Toronto Film Festival in September 2004, and was released internationally in 2005. The film is about racial and social tensions in Los Angeles. A self-described "passion piece" for director Paul Haggis, Crash was inspired by a real life incident in which his Porsche was carjacked outside a video store on Wilshire Boulevard in 1991.[1] It won three Oscars for Best Picture, Best Original Screenplay and Best Editing of 2005 at the 78th Academy Awards.

I think I liked babel better, though I havnt seen crash for a long time, I know they are kind of similar, but I like babel because its on a much wider scale, kinda like the chaos theory.

The battleship Missouri is about to be decomissioned. Casey Ryback is Captain Adam's personal cook. And Ryback is always butting heads with the ship's XO Commander Krill but the Captain always intercedes. One day, after the President visits the Missouri, which is also the Captain's birthday, the Captain learns that a helicopter has been cleared to land on the ship by Commander Krill, which he was not informed of. When questioned Krill tells the Captain that it's a surprise for his birthday, the Captain then allows it. Later after another one of their scuffles, Krill has Ryback locked in the freezer. During the party, the rock band reveals themselves to be mercenaries, led by William Stranix, a CIA operative, who is in league with Krill to unload all of the ship's nuclear warheads. They lock up all of the crew and make preparations to remove the warheads. And Krill remembers Ryback, Stranix sends two of his men to take care of Ryback, only thing is that Ryback took care of them. Upon discovering their bodies, Stranix deduces that Ryback is more than a cook. He then sends Krill to check on him, and Krill discovers that Ryback's a NAVY SEAL, who got busted down to a cook after an incident in Panama. And Ryback continues to create trouble for them, so Stranix tries to hunt him down. Along the way, Ryback meets Jordan, a former playmate, who was supposed to entertain at the party but was also forgotten.

JUMPER, cool effects, not a bad story line, good beginning to what will hopefully become a series of sequels... I thought it was short, seemed to be over quickly and almost left me hanging, but then I realized they must have done this to lead us into the 2nd movie... They better release a 2nd one! Same actors/actress', keep it going, I give this a A- good for all ages!

I was not impressed, thought Pitt did his worst job yet... I liked him better back in the "fight club" days... Think he is getting lazy and is losing his skills... Did not think this movie was anything special and blown completely out of proportion... Sorry no offense, just didn't like the film much... One watch and probably never again...

Ok. Here it is:

Cruise+Valkryie= Refund Please!!!!

I recently attended a mega-private screening of Brian Singer's "propaganda" lets kill Hitler flick "Valkyrie" which is a desperate attempt for the German people to recover a last shred of human decency, for allowing such an wannabe anti-Christ as Adolph Hitler to rise to power and destroy the good name of the German people. More below-

SOURCE:

goldderby.latimes.com...

Tom Cruise's Oscar hopes dim for 'Valkyrie'?

Our first clue that "Valkyrie" might be a big, Nazi (stink) bomb came when it was saluted at the end of the last Razzie Awards ceremony as one of the pix most likely to be hailed next year.

Tom_cruise_valkyrie_1

Tom Cruise fans have been praying for the opposite, of course. Since the superstar is rather overdue for an Oscar, they hope he can be helped by portraying a real, heroic person in a World War II flick (think past winners Adrien Brody in "The Pianist" or William Holden in "Stalag 17") directed by a chap who got Kevin Spacey that Oscar in the supporting slot for "The Usual Suspects" (Bryan Singer).

Now Roger Friedman of FoxNews.com says that, contrary to recent reports, that very public lunch Tom Cruise had with Sumner Redstone last week wasn't a sign that the heartthrob's life is increasingly yummy.

"For one thing, sources tell me it was Cruise who called Redstone, not the other way around," Friedman says. "The fact that Cruise groveled in public with Redstone would indicate that the actor knows just how bad 'Valkyrie' is and that he’s trying to shore up his future before the eye patch hits the fan this fall.



CONTINUED DK3000 REVIEW

-I knew a few of the critics who couldn't wait to make a rope of words from hyperbole, politically correct-expletives, and disdain from which to hang Cruise with, so naturally, I was not surprised when they dashed out and away from the usual drink swigging vacuous executives, agents and assorted/related parasitic sycophants fleeing the aftermath of this cinematic holocaust!

As usual, the self-aggrandizing emptiness filled the room with hollow compliments praising no one, for no reason, with the utmost sincerity and well wishes at the box-office. Those who remained were really there for the booze and the models(hookers/prostitutes) to disguise the bad taste in everyone's mouth, this same ritual continues until you stumble, slur or nab a deal or a meeting from someone more inebriated than you- hoping beyond hope that their hang-over never wears off enough to cancel the meeting at the last minute on the promised date!

I prefer the suck-up opera (screening reception) to the actual movie because 95% of the time its more entertaining than the film itself- in an oddly sickening way.

Brian Singer knows how to make a movie or at least he used to. If you know how to make a movie you do not cast Tom Cruise if you want to be taken seriously- If Tom is part of the deal- then any serious film maker with credo and integrity would pass due to a very busy schedule of making real films.

Cruise delivers his usual gift of, not much with the same monotone vocal timber, in a vain effort to convince himself that; he is an artist with an Oscar to prove it- so you had better listen when he delivers his dialog as if there is no other actor (or anyone else for that matter) on the set. I just want to say to him; Tom- you had me at..."I don't think so". So unfortunately, like a Scientologist never giving up on a potential convert who stupidly agreed to take the personality test- Cruise remains throughout this horny epic digital propaganda flop. Cruise should kick David Miscaviage to the curb and make some real money without annoying the rest of us. Being that Cruise will not engage his feminine side for publicity reasons he runs in circles chasing his patriarchal tail making the rest of us dizzy not unlike "The Blair Witch Project", in all of his films.

While Cruise chews through everything including the scenery like a hungry dog- his better- mannered co-stars dine on this subject matter with proper utensils- hoping he will pick up the proper fork and sit at the table. With all of the examples around him he never seems to learn proper etiquette- which is why, I cannot help but wonder why he keeps getting invited!!

There is a preview trailer on the link provided and it does show Cruise's best moments- I can assure you it doesn't get any better than that(IMO). So take the free appetizer and wait for this dreck to show up on cable programming. Better yet- if you must see this - wait until it shows up in a "5 dollars for three movies" DVD bin at Walmart, Target or whevere else it is you pick up your corporate poison.

Don't get someone to pay for your "Valkyrie" movie ticket, because that's just mean!

Its bad enough that the German people were unable to de-throne Hitler- but to have Tom Cruise rub your failures in your face is plain hateful and unnecessary.

Cinematically this film is adequate at best with a sparsing of stunning moments. The supporting cast politely phone in their dialog reminding us all they too have to pay rent. Tom Wilkinson's insider tongue waggling is sheer perfection as he shows us all who can "see" he has a sense of humor in collecting his rent money without crapping on his co-stars!

(Kenneth Brannah- please learn how to do this- we saw Conspiracy and the lesson was from Stan Tucci and now from Wilkinson- please pick up this technique or next time I give you a review as an "aging Tom Cruise with a British accent!!!). I am pulling for Kenneth even though I saw "Dead Again" and forgot I could leave the before the movie ended.

One thing I did like about Cruise's character was the "eye-patch"- I just wished it was about 2 inches lower and 1 1/2 inches to the left!
