I love when I’m surprised by a movie. It doesn’t matter if it’s in a good way or in a bad, I love when I rate a movie at the end and that rating is not at all what I had expected. Now, with that said, I don’t like being tricked by a movie. I don’t like getting one thing when I expected another. But Bound, in both areas, gave me what I wanted; a film that was what I knew it would be, but better than I could have ever imagined.
The story is a classic one; a mob deal gone wrong, everyone suspecting everyone else of stealing the dough, plots within plots, and a few gunfights tossed in. But the real drama revolves not around the Mob, but around the budding romance of Corky and Violet, two women who share a connection in this twisted, underground world. As Vi’s money-laundering boyfriend Caesar weaves his own webs, she and Corky attempt to find a way out; out of the Family, out of his control, and into a world of their very own.
I was blown away; I just didn’t see it coming. Part film noir, part love story, part crime/suspense, part dry comedy, this film has it all. With a David Fincher flare, Wachowski’s directing was superb, with beautifully simple scenes and sensory-heavy moments. The acting was spot on; perfect dead pan humor and crime drama homage. The details were good, but the love story drove the plot. Tilly and Gershon were a perfect pair. This film has a reputation for explicit lesbianism, but it just shows how desensitized we must be to heterosexual sex in modern movies; the love scenes, while quite adult, were far less graphic and vulgar than your typical Hollywood sex scenes. With a great love story, a cool vibe, some terrific acting (especially by Pantoliano), and a wickedly sick sense of humor, Bound may not be for everyone, but it’s a must-see movie for any movie buff.

Any of these concepts is an improvement over the current uniforms. And they show that you can still
honor your past while keeping up with the modern era. The orange helmets have GOT to go, obviously. And some sort of symbol is needed, even if it’s just the letter ‘B’. I really like the first picture and I think Browns fans could get on board with it as well. While playing Madden I created a Browns look featuring a bulldog with colors and symbols much like the third picture, but I think this is perhaps too deviant from the current standard.
Whichever way you want to do it, I think it’s past time to make some waves. Change your uniforms, change your colors, change your attitude, but change something so that the improvements you’ve made in the off-season don’t go to waste.
