Are you going to go see Brokeback Mountain aka the gay cowboy love story movie starring Heath Ledger and Jake Gyllenhaal
Why or why not?

I am. It's based on one of the best stories I've ever read (by one of my favorite authors); and, really, it's less about being gay and much more about how we have no control over who we fall in love with. -Ali

I must admit, I am interested in the film, but apprehensive about the story.
Plus I wonder if Bubble Boy and the dude from A Knights Tale can convince me that they are in love. Even though I believe that Jake Gyllenhaal is secretly gay himself...though I have no proof of this allegation.
What about everyone else?

cube said...

Nope. I don't go to many movies anyway, but this one is not the kind of movie that appeals to me.

Amy said...

Since the only person I go to the movies with is my hubby, no. We saw the review on Ebert & Roeper the other day and once he saw there'd be gay men kissing he said no way.

Proof that Jake is gay (I never thought about) - he's dating Kirsten Dunst, who I do not think is anything special at all.

Jessey said...

I also only go to the movies with my husband and since the last movie we saw together in a movie theater was Dodgeball and that was on our first anniversary and that was a year and a half ago, I think we probably won't see the gay cowboy movie.
I watched part of the special about the movie on VH-1 last night, if only to try to decipher why in hell Heath Ledger was wearing sunglasses while being interviewed, ostensibly while indoors. Very odd fellow.

Amy: Kirsten Dunst, like Cameron Diaz, is one of those blondie mushfaces, who I also see no special attractiveness in. Her appeal is lost on me.

Jessey said...

Proof that Jake Gyllenhaal is gay, or at least partially queer...not that there's anything wrong with that...

Amy said...

Ooh, I think the same thing about Cameron Diaz. I would not say she is ugly, but she is nothing special. The only time I have liked her was in Something About Mary, where her character was so nice I could see why everybody wanted her. otherwise, no go. I think I want to be famous because once you are you are just the most gorgeous creature ever, unless you're super talented (i.e., Meryl Streep) in which case your looks don't matter.

I also don't see the big hooie over Angelina. Again, not ugly, but I would never say she's the most attractive creature to ever grace the earth. Her lips are always in need of a swipe of chapstick. I think the draw is that guys figure she'd be into some crazy kinky sex stuff.

I haven't even heard of this movie, but I'll probably watch it at the theatre - alone.

Heck, I'll say it, CAMERON DIAZ IS UGLY! That girl has more acne problems than a 14 y/o kid. I don't think she's at all pretty.

I agree with Amy on Angelina, those lips are scary.

Jessey said...

Angelina's lips look painful, like you would always be saying "ooh ouch, my lips are so chappy"

It's amazing how pretty $20 million per picture can make a person.
And on this subject, what is up with Justin Timberlake? First he is with Britney mushface, now Cameron mushface. He must like the mushfaces.

I asked my husband if he was going to see the gay cowboy movie.

Bob: Uuuuummmmm no.
Me: Why not?
Bob: (stares at me blankly)
Me: Is it because you're afraid of the gay feelings it will awaken in you?
Bob: Ummmm. No.

Amy said...

You should trick your husband into watching Kinsey. There is a full frontal of Peter Saarsgard and as he is full frontal he moves in and starts making out with Liam Neeson. My husband got that movie because he thought it'd be all about sex and he'd see Laura Linney naked and that would make up for my no porn rule and all he got was a two second boob shot but lots of penis. Haha! And that was two weeks after the nice Leo tush show in Aviator.

Jessey said...

That would be so mean!
I think he would be pretty upset to have seen two naked dudes making out.
It might scar him for life.
