    Default Brokeback Mountain

    Watched this on channel 4 last night, I have wanted to see it for a while.
    I was pleasantly surprised, it was a very good film and the acting was brilliant.
    I can see why it was oscar winning etc.. and I did shed a wee tear at the end.
    Well worth watching

    i seen this film ages ago and i totally agree with you i had a good cry at the end of the film and i have done a few times again when i have watched it

    I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain.ROY'S DEATH BLADE RUNNER 1982

    I just watched it, it was okay but a bit boring in parts.

    Nobody could accuse Brokeback Mountain of being romantic!

    The film caused a long, vituperative thread on the general forum upon its release. I commented then that I didn't fancy the prospect of kissing cowpokes - or even handy holding hombres. My views haven't change but I'd probably watch it now.
    I missed its recent screening. One day I'll catch up with it but I'm in no hurry.

    p. Jake Gyllenhall wa s on in 'Proof' last night BBC 2 - which perhaps I should have stuck with. It seemed a highly unusual film. An eleven hour drive had made me tired though. He is the image of my next door neighbours Grandson.

    I have seen this once as I bought it for my wife, I thought it was pretty good but the scenes of the blokes kissing made me cringe. In the words of Austin Powers .. "that's not my bag baby"

    I am waiting for the remake called "Thrownonyourback Mountain" starring two playboy bunnies who become hot oil wrestlers and develop an attraction for each other ... now that I would watch.

    funny shelley mine does to, but if it was 2 cowgirls it would be a different story.

    I watched it on 4 as well just to be a modern man and I think I would rather a good John Wayne film anyday.

    Doesn't bother me seeing them kiss, but might be different if I saw two girls going at it hammer and tongs... The story is a good one though and the cinematography is just superb, but I did find it was hard to catch what Heath Ledger said in places.
