Today I went to see Crash. I wanted to make a "joke" about this, but I couldn't come up with anything good. I was going to pretend that I went into it blindly thinking that it was a biopic about Lawrence 'Crash' Davis, who was fictionalized for the classic baseball movie Bull Durham. Either that, or that I thought it was a redux of David Cronenberg's film of the same name. I never saw the Cronenberg movie, but I know for sure that it wasn't a redux. Actually, the only thing I know about the Cronenberg vehicle is that there was a shitload of really graphic sex scenes.
A little bit of incidental information about "Crash" Davis. The real Crash Davis was a shortstop/2nd baseman who played three partial seasons in the Major Leagues, and never hit more than a couple of homers. Costner's character spoke of going to "the show" for just a few games. He was a catcher who hit a boatload of home runs.
Enough aboat that
I was actually a bit miffed because there weren't any previews. None. There were a shitpot of Coca-cola commercials, but no previews. I'm not going to give a long movie review or anything like that. I don't want to spoil it for anyone who hasn't seen it. And if you haven't, you should. That is, if you like movies. I was recently handed brickbats for not giving a "spoiler warning" about a SFU episode, so I'll completely refrain from giving spoilers here. Save this: Jennifer Esposito is an attractive woman.
At some point in the near future, I'll see Batman Begins, but probably not until next week.
