The Crow. Definitely one of my favorite movies.
Just in case you’ve never seen it (You’ve seen it, right? Right? You better have.), here’s a super quick plot summary:
It’s a dark movie based on a comic book. Eric Draven and his fiancee are brutally murdered on Devil’s Night, but a crow brings Eric back to life to punish the gang who killed him.
If the people we love are stolen from us, the way to have them live on is to never stop loving them. Buildings burn. People die. But real love is forever.
Like Empire Records, the movie has a great soundtrack. I wonder if subconsciously I judge movies based on their soundtracks. Hmmm.
Just to be safe, if you ever meet me in person, you may want to hum an awesome song right after introductions. May I suggest the Wonder Woman theme?
Anyways, here’s what I learned from The Crow:
- “Morphine is bad for you.”
- “It can’t rain all the time.”
- “Onions make you fart…big time.”
Unfortunately, Brandon Lee died while filming. He was shot. So the most important thing I learned from this movie is Never play with guns.
If you’ve never seen The Crow, that’s your homework assignment this weekend: to watch it.
Also, apparently, there are four Crow movies. I’ve only seen the first two. Has anyone seen all of them?
