I felt an a-ha moment when I saw today that Crash made the list of Worst Oscars Ever. I guess I wasn't the only one who thought it was an overrated piece of garbage. And I disliked it for the same reasons that I disliked Brokeback Mountain: it was all agony and no hope. It was depressing for the sake of being depressing. I couldn't stomach a straight love story with that message.

And now I just spent twenty minutes looking for an old quote I read about Transformers so I could tie this blog post up with a pretty bow, but I can't find it so I am giving up. No poignant ending.

Sarah, this is off topic, but a while ago someone linked to a very good post about PTSD. I thought I'd gotten there through you, but cannot find it again. I need to send that link to some good friends, and was hoping that maybe you remember where that might have been.

I hated CRASH myself. I found it to be a little to unrealistic.

Note to Sarah, critics thought it was so good that it will be coming to prime time television as a series. I can't remember the channel, but watch out world.

Uh, oh, Ronin loves the Transformers. I'm dying to know what you were thinking about here...the old movie or the new one from this past summer?
