Crash isn't the worst movie I've ever seen--it's just the worst movie I've seen in the last six months or so.

You know, I haven't seen it yet. But it never really piqued my interest enough for me to want to rent it.
What's so bad about it?

You can get it from the library for free if you're up for being punched in the face with stories about how everyone is racist.

It was just overwrought, I think. It's the perfect Hollywood "Best Picture" movie: agressive liberal message, lots of quasi-interesting actors, and hyperlink/Tarantino-style structure. Meh.

I have a feeling that any movie that Hollywood 'treasures' is going to big pile of shit. I try not to see movies that everyone thinks is going to win awards because that means it's going to be boring and predictable, regardless of how good the acting is.
I recently saw "Unfaithful" (albeit on TV so no sex scenes) and I don't even understand how it got nominated for ANY awards. It was two actors pretending to be bad actors, and the plot was motherloving ridiculous (there's not even a good reason for her to have started the affair in the first place, except that she's a dumbass). I'd rather see something that's visually beautiful with hardly any plot (like "Marie Antoinette") or something entertaining and insane (like "300") than sit through something heavy-handed and trite.

Sabrina, I agree that almost every movie is predictable and boring, or perhaps taken somewhere else. Sometimes when I go to the cinema and pay money for tickets to see the film that doesn't cost it, I regret. But still I can find some films that can be watched (but not in cinema).

Weird--a robot who watches movies.

I doubt whether there are such films that can really attract everyone's attention. Nowadays there is quite a different understanding of a good film.
