ET.

i mourn the loss of my innocence.

also, Titanic gets me, NOT when Leo dies or when anyone else dies, but at the very end when the ship comes back to life and all the classes are united and Rose and Jack can finally be together in a better world where there is no first class and no steerage class and we're all one but not the same and everyone who loves each other is treated equally and the people are gathered together to applaud true love no matter in what form it might take and that's really the message of the movie because with the sinking of the Titanic came the sinking of man's own hubris because how small is he compared to the might of nature and it was also the end of a pre-WW1 extremely rigid class system that was the direct result of the industrial revolution (as was the boat).

beautiful, in an almost nothing-to-do-with-the-actual-movie kind of way.

and, yes, kids, Brokeback Mountain destroyed me for a week or so.

That is the part of Titanic that always get's me the most too!

Brokeback Mountain just caught me completely off guard

No.
I haven't seen it and have no immediate plans to do so.

I just saw it for the first time last week. I thought it was good as well.

There are some commercials that make me cry. A few years ago, i think it was for a computer, there was one about kids on a bus. There was a deaf child on the bus and no one sat next to that kid. So this other kid goes home, gets on the computer and learns some sign language. The next day she sat next to the deaf child and signed something. Damn, that commercial made me cry!

why so empahtically anti-Brokeback?

it won, like, 3 Oscars and was far and away the critical consensus for best movie of 2005.

I thought it was well done, a great love story, and I cry every time I see it. The end did catch me off guard. My husband had no interest in seeing it, and I almost literally had to kick him out of the room when I watched it, because I didn't appreciate his usual mockery of whatever I'm watching, especially with the storyline of the movie. The acting and storyline... everything about it was great. It should have been best movie that year. Then again, I didn't see all the other nominees, only 'Goodnight & Good Luck'. Winner that year: Crash, which I have yet to see. I Tivo'd it, but it got deleted somehow (or bumped),Brokeback Mountain” (Focus Features)

Brokeback Mountain
Capote
Crash
Good Night, and Good Luck
Munich

Some co-workers at my work saw it and specifically commented on the actual "theme" regarding the movie. (or should I say "plot" ??) They all left the theatre rather upset ... as it was NOT what they expected the movie would be.
(I can't tell you though if they stayed through the whole showing of the movie ... or if they left early ... I don't really remember.)
I guess they didn't read the reviews about the movie, first ... fortunately, I did ... and I never was interested any further to go and see it.

What did your friends expect? I'm confused, because it was pretty well publicized what the story involved.

As far as explicit sex, well I've seen much much more in movies about heterosexuals.

Unlike some of the film's characters.

Sorry, too easy to resist.
