Well Central and South America are highly religous and I think this would have to do with their faith.

I would have to agree with your dad. You should have talked to that pastor in private about your feelings.

I finally saw the movie last night (thank you, o speedy Netflix!). I thought it was very good, and a good story, although it dragged a little in the middle section.

I was really impressed with Heath Ledger, although I swear I missed half his dialogue due to crappy mixing on the DVD. (Honestly, are they mixing the sound on those things so they only sound good on $6 bazillion dollar home theater systems? The music was blasting out of my TV, but I couldn't hear the dialogue half the time.)

Unless your gay or lesbian then the gloves come off.

Which is why I always watch DVDs using subtitles . Less frustrating than constantly adjusting the volume or rewinding.

A lot of DVDs are, by default, mixed for 2.1 (two speakers, plus subwoofer). Most older TVs, however, are only 2.0 (two speakers). Some DVDs have a separate 2.0 track, so try selecting an alternate audio stream.

You, too?

I thought it was amazing... Very well told, and Heath and Jake were awesome.

And Netflix rules my world... I had it Tuesday night.

Mon Apr 10, 11:10 AM ET

A prison officer faces punishment for showing the gay cowboy movie "Brokeback Mountain" to inmates at the state's largest prison, a corrections department spokeswoman said.

Massachusetts Department of Correction spokeswoman Diane Wiffin said the officer, whose name was not released, had not followed standard procedure for screening the movie for excessive violence, assaults on correctional staff, nudity or explicit sexual content.

She would not reveal what discipline the officer could face.

"I want to make it clear, it wasn't the subject matter — it was the graphic nature of the sexually explicit scenes," Wiffin said Monday.

The officer showed the movie Thursday at MCI-Norfolk, a medium security prison about 25 miles southwest of Boston. According to Wiffin, a deputy supervisor came in as the movie was showing and asked if the officer had screened it first. He said no. Since only 20 minutes remained of the movie, the inmates were allowed to see the end, she said.

Wiffin did not know how many inmates saw the movie and did not know of any other instance when a prison officer was disciplined over a movie.

really? would you see a deeply tragic movie over and over and over again if Halle Berry and Charlize Theron had sex once, were sucked into loveless marriages, forced to keep their love in the closet and live lives of quiet desperation and shattered dreams and diminished expectations because of a society that would rather have them dead than be in love?

yes, i know this is a joke, but it's not like BBM was some kind of soft core porn. it's a serious, tragic, fairly substantial piece of art.

I know it's a joke. There are movies I own that I watch over and over again because there well made movies. I saw BBM in theaters. Of course no one would see it with me. I was called a "fag" for watching it. It was a pretty good and sad movie.
