BROKEBACK MOUNTAIN...  


I just got back from seeing Brokeback Mountain with my younger sister...we drove down to Annapolis to see it! Luckily, we got there early, because the theatre was packed.

I don't want to give away any details to those of you who haven't seen it, but I loved it...although it was extremely intense. This is not an action flick or a happily ever after romance...it's real...intense...and the feelings are deep. IMHO, if Heath Ledger doesn't get that 'Best Actor' Golden Globe, it's a travesty!
The scenery in the mountains is absolutely overwhelming in scope and beauty...this was such a good film!
I don't want to slight Jake Gyllenhaal here...his acting was also incredible and memorable as was Michelle William's!
I knew a very basic story going in, but a few things really shook me...sis and I had a pack of tissues that we placed in the cupholder between us! LOL!! Don't laugh...she used many more than I did!!!

I just saw it last night.
Films don't 'move' me... I'm not emotional that way.
This one did. (damnit!)
Heath gave one hell of a performance in this.
The scenery is fantasitic. It should be seen on the biggest possible screne you can find!
And... and...
I could go on and on about this film... but I just put a review on Garys board.
http://p209.ezboard.com/fgaryjrfrm18.showMessage?topicID=222.topic

I saw it alone (thank god) I may see it again. If I can muster up the strength to see the ending again.
Mark: gay brokeback mtboywondermark on January 1st, 2006 11:37 pm (UTC)
Phil...my heart hurt after seeing it! I had no idea about the ending! OMG!

( I keep thinking...Jack 'Fucking' Twist! LOL)
Su: Isshin Shibaralphiere on January 1st, 2006 11:17 pm (UTC)
I soooo want to see it!! I'll add it to my neverending list - we never get a chance to go to the movies (boy do I love netflix!).
Markboywondermark on January 1st, 2006 11:38 pm (UTC)
I still haven't seen Narnia! I also want to see Casanova and Tristan and Isolde!!

I want to see that so bad! No one closer than 90 miles from here is showing it that I can find. Can we say DVD?
Mark: gay brokeback mtboywondermark on January 2nd, 2006 04:10 am (UTC)
You'd think it would be at all the theatres in Baltimore, but we had to drive to Annapolis!
Dennissixperfections on January 2nd, 2006 04:26 am (UTC)
I was amused at the "big sex scene", it slipped in so easy! I was thinking "right, it's that easy" I did like the film though.

I actually watched Memoirs of a Geisha right after for the double header, I liked that film better actually. It's visually stunning.

Santa get you any Bel Ami vids for Christmas?
Mark: gay brokeback mtboywondermark on January 2nd, 2006 10:06 pm (UTC)
Hahahahaha! Yeah...I was thinking, "OMG...NO LUBE!!!".

No vids for Xmas, but Jase keeps me supplied through downloads! *grin*

Ennis DelMar was a terribly repressed, backward kinda guy...his mumbling was appropriate to his character, IMO! I found his character very sad, but very endearing.
lomelinde_sama on January 2nd, 2006 07:51 am (UTC)
I hope to see it very soon ... I managed to carch the book by Annie Proulx at the store and read the short story on which the movie is based, and ... even the words are violent, hitting you like a punch in the guts.
Mark: gay brokeback mtboywondermark on January 3rd, 2006 12:04 am (UTC)
OMG! Some of the things in the movie I know were more explicit in the book...not sure I could read it!
rookwoodcard on January 2nd, 2006 09:59 pm (UTC)
Hey. I was just looking up an interest on the directory and came across your LJ, and voila, your first entry is on BBM. I saw it a couple weeks ago. I was still depressed all the next day. Damn good film. *sniff*
Mark: gay brokeback mtboywondermark on January 3rd, 2006 12:44 am (UTC)
Glad you found me, Pixie! What interest did I pop up on?!

OMG...I'm glad someone else reacted like me...I'm still feeling so down from it! It's excellent, but really hits you in the gut!

crying...
Everybody in the theater knows who the gay guy was! ;-)

I had a feeling our cowpoke Mark was going to cry at the movie. I hope you're feeling better.

I haven't seen the movie yet - I might see it this weekend, and of course give my usual dgreatone analysis.

I'll have an excuse though - I got a cold.
Mark: gay brokeback mtboywondermark on January 7th, 2006 02:24 am (UTC)
Re: crying...
If I do cry, it's not like anyone would know unless they sit next to me...I don't boo hoo or blow my nose...I just have the tears run and I wipe them away! LOL
BiSexual BadAsshotbastard on January 12th, 2006 10:35 am (UTC)
I saw the movie a couple of days ago, very good, very sad, but I didn't cry. I really loved Heath Ledger in the movie, very cowboy, even to the end, but you could tell he loved Jack and he wished he could be with him forever. One thing that bugs me about the movie is that it is a little overhyped. And everyone calling it a gay cowboy movie, good grief, Its a story about 2 BISEXUAL cowboys who find true love with each other. :) Like I always said woman can be called bisexual, but nope bi men are ALWAYS categoried as gay because as a man your either gay or your straight, its just that black and white. :( If the story was about two cowgirls they'd be called bisexual. End Invisible Bisexual rant.
Mark: gay Bel Ami 2boywondermark on January 12th, 2006 02:30 pm (UTC)
LOL! I actually has a woman at work say, "If I want to see a cowboy movie, I'll watch John Wayne!"...WTF! This is not a western...it's a love story where the two main guys happen to do cowboy work!
Heath Ledger was amazing...I've always liked him ever since I first saw him in the TV show "ROAR".
You are so funny, HB...your rants are NEVER invisible! *wink*
