I think if I ever sign up for Netflix or something that I'll put that on my list of movies to see. seems that a lot of you have favorable reviews about it.

I really don't know what my 'co-workers' expected from this movie. You know, sometimes people just go see a movie because the box office ratings are so high during the weekend it came out (that they assume it will be a GREAT movie, because of the high ratings) and some never even read the reviews or hear about the actual plot before going to see it. (I think that was the case, with my co-workers) Then they were really talking about it the next day at work and how they didn't enjoy the sexual content between men. So that must have been why they were upset with the movie ... that is why I 'guessed' that they didn't read the reviews first, either.

yes, Brokeback was only about men having sex.

that's all it was about.



there might be 90 seconds of man-on-man action (and probably a whole 180 seconds of heterosexual sex).

but don't worry, straight guys, you won't get too uncomfortably turned on.

I don't understand why people would get so upset over the sexual content, sex is sex in movies and it's uncomfortable or not to watch depending upon individual comfort levels. I have seen hetero sex scenes in mainstream movies that are so graphic that it is very uncomfortable for me to watch.

Yes I will admit that it felt "odd" for me at first to watch the very little bit of sex that was in Brokeback, only because I've never seen that in a theater in a mainstream movie. Honestly not in any other type of movie either. But like Irvine said that's not what the movie was about, and once it starts unfolding it fits into the plot and story perfectly. The sex becomes completely secondary, and that's certainly not the case in so many mainstream hetero movies where so often it's just banging for the sake of banging, to be blunt about it.

I really am a big cry baby

^ Saw the old b&w version, I think there's a new one...and yes, I cried. Forgot all about it. And Mask (not Jim Carrey, the Cher one).

Interesting that more people were put off by the guy/guy action in Brokeback than the ass-raping scene in Deliverance. Not picking at anyone, just an observation. BTW I loved Deliverance, cool movie...I didn't cry thouth heh.

That movie made me hysterical when I was little. The scene where Dumbo visits his mother always made me bawl, especially when they wave good-bye to each other.
