‘CRASH’ AND BURN IS MORE LIKE IT
Hollywood just doesnâ€™t know how to do movies about race. That horrible Anthony Hopkins as black man flickâ€¦John Travolta in White Manâ€™s Burdenâ€¦now Crash. Disasters all. Am I supposed to ooh and ahhh when a racist white cop saves a woman from a burning car even though sheâ€™sâ€¦gaspâ€¦black?
Or be shocked that a Mexican guy with tatooes all over his body is a good father?
Oh and donâ€™t forget Chinese immigrants sometimes have accents.
Itâ€™s just soooo crazy, I smell an Oscar.
I guess so, because that is the only explanation I have for the critical success of Crash.
The dialogue is almost as predictable as the â€œironicâ€ situations the characters find themselves in. Of course, the good white cop ends up shooting an unarmed black kid. Or that rich white lady realizes her Hispanic maid really is only â€œfriend.â€ (Yeah, Iâ€™ll be your friend too missus, as long as that check clears every month. Biatch.)
Itâ€™s kinda depressing that in 2005 this tripe is considered groundbreaking.
Yeah, we all have different cultures, backgroundS and economic realities, but hopefully we can all agree that we donâ€™t need to plunk down $10.50 to watch some lame ass movie â€œexploreâ€ those differences.
