I wanted to go see Crash at the movies, but unfortunately it wasn’t showing around here anymore so I had to watch a bootleg DVD from the internet. Anyway Friday night I got together with a few friends and watched the movie. I would very much recommend it to anyone. The movie is very powerful. At times I did think there was too much going on and the scenes would change too often, but it was still entertaining and extremely thought provoking. It is probably not the type of movie you would want to watch after drinking a six pack of Abita Amber, but they type of movie you rather watch, they go get a cup of coffee and talk about it with your friends.
Among the many strengths of this movie is an amazing cast including Don Cheadle (btw, I know he was good in this movie, Hotel Rwanda, Oceans 11 and Traffic, but I think his best performance was the doctor on ER with Parkinson’s, give the brother an Emmy already), Sandra Bullock, Terrance Howard, Thania Newton, Matt Dillon, Brendon Fraser, plus many others. But the one actor who stood out the most to me was Chris Bridges, better known as Ludacris. I’m not a big fan of the current crop of rappers turned actors, but
