Subject: a bit like crash

It sounds a bit like a Crash deal. I didn't think that Crash was a very good movie and it was hard to believe that it won for best picture that year. Reminds me of the other travesy by the academy for the lord of the ring movie... which was terrible. Anyway... this one looks okay... have to wait and see.
