More about Brokeback Mountain

In the first post, I said that because of the sound loss, it wasn't as moving to me but I don't want anyone to think it's not a good movie. I just couldn't hear it. A friend said go and see it again, but I won't because it will still have crappy sound, plus someone else told me that Heath Ledger mumbles in his other movies. Not a good thing for a hard of hearing person to look for in an actor. :( I think what I might do is read the original story and go from there. I have a feeling in my case the story itself would be much better and would touch me more. I was very disappointed after I saw this movie, but not because of the movie itself. Just because I couldn't hear it. I'm sure no one else had that same problem.

Did anyone else see it and have troubles hearing like I did? I'm going to wait and see it on DVD and hope for subtitles.

And isn't it a pisser that this movie is only playing in older theaters having to do with artsy fartsy films? They have shitty sound systems and it's no wonder people can't hear what they say.

*sigh*

Well, heaven forbid that the mainstream theaters play a movie that has gay cowboys. Fuck, that might mean they're those dirty liberals or something and get boycotted. Don't get me started. I hope BROKEBACK MOUNTAIN wins a ton of awards and goes to DVD with lots of extras like commentary and sells a bunch of copies. The more successful the movie, the more likely we'll get more gay-themed movies. Maybe the ones in the future might not be so grim in their endings. Wouldn't it be nice if we got some decent gay movies where the at least one of the guys doesn't die of AIDS or being gay bashed? Is that too much to ask?

It would be very nice. I would be the first one in line to see a movie that was uplifting and even fun. :) I love romance, so that would be nice too. We'll see how BBM does at the Golden Globes and maybe even the Oscars and see if that doesn't open some doors. :) I hope so.

I'm hoping it does well. Ang Lee is a brilliant director and so I'm hoping for the best.
