Movie Review: Crash

Two black teenagers eye a wealthy, white couple. A Middle Eastern man argues with a gun salesman he’s trying to buy from. A black cop makes love with his Hispanic partner. Where do all of these storylines go? You’ll be surprised how artfully the storylines are interweaved in Crash.

What makes Crash so unique is that it doesn’t shy away from conflict. It confronts the viewers’ racial, political, and moral beliefs. With a directness that recently has been absent in other films, Crash will leave questions splattered in your mind long after the credits finish.

The genre of Crash is formally drama. This is only useful information for finding where it’s located in Blockbuster. Like all great movies, Crash defies any single genre. The single best word to describe it is not drama, but revelation.

Crash recently upset Brokeback Mountain for the Academy Award for Best Picture for 2005. Go borrow Crash and find out why.
Then let’s talk about the ending. My mind is still blown away by how paradoxically beautiful Crash is.

Restaurant Review: Japonais

Hours: Thurs.-Saturday: 11:30am-2:30pm, 5-11pm
Sun.- Wednesday: 5-10pm

Location: 320 N. Walnut Street

Sushi tends to carry a love/hate relationship for most but no matter which way you side, Bloomington’s newest Japanese/Sushi Bar restaurant “Japonais” has something to offer you. The atmosphere inside ranges from unique architectural designs that are ideal for romantic dates to private party rooms where groups can enjoy the “big game” on flat screen TV’s. The food selection, price and portions all are typical of any other Japanese restaurants. The only food difference that puts Japonais over the competition is their unique selection of sushi, which includes IU favorites such as the “Hoosier roll,” “Indiana roll” and the “Sex and the City roll”. For those sushi haters, the menu also includes the western favorite…Chicken Teriyaki. My personal tip to anyone going is to bring lots of friends, lots of money and have lots of fun!!!

What I liked…
– Atmosphere/Restaurant Design
– $1 beer everyday
– Party rooms with flat screen TVs and Karaoke
– Unique sushi creations

What I didn’t like…
– Service was uneducated in the menu and EXTREMELY slow
– Free parking only incorporates 6 parking spots in the front
– Menu selection could be expanded
– A bit pricey for me
