'Broke Back'... Excuses...

Broke Back Excuses...to further honor the know nothing, do nothing, be nothing, self serving, wacked out Follywood crowd.

Off in the distance, someone said..."we're going to make this movie popular no matter WHAT anyone else says!!!" "It can only sell 7 tickets, but we need this for our way of life...we'll MAKE it popular"

Historically, movie companies and actors guilds have celebrated 'themselves' when the rest cast a blind eye. Now, they've gone over the edge (IMHO). This should be a message to everybody there; "sorry, but we're not watching!!!".

    It's all about the money. Long before the Hollyweirdos get to do their thing, many, many people in respectable far flung places write large checks; accountants calculate profit margins; PR firms do their dance; calendars are studied for optimal release dates; and theater owners are told what to do.

    If the unseen forces behind film making thought a dollar could be made on a movie about (insert ludicrous scenario here) they would do it.

    Then again, I rarely go to the movies. Last one I saw was T2 in '91.

    I still remember when Shakespeare in Love beat out Saving Private Ryan for best picture. I give anybody a dollar for anyone who bought shakespeare versus giving me a dime for anyone who bought Saving Private Ryan. Who do you think will have more money?

    don't know anyone who saw this movie, never saw it playing at any theatre, i think all the hype is fabricated so the hollywierds can say "see they love gay people, and it is totally acceptable"

    This movie, though I have not seen it, is just around to piss people off and fodder for witty people. This seems a bit on the hateful side, but the movie is doing its job, I guess.

    Guys, guys. Keep in mind. This is not a movie about Cowboys. They're Sheep herders. Now if'n ya want ta hate 'em...There's plenty of reason right there!
    Anyway, "In a Brokeback Mountain sort of way" has replaced "Buys Clay Aiken CD's" "Big Liza Minelli Fan" and "Prison Romance" in the vernacular of my morning program. It's just fun to have new cultural refrences all the time. Because we were wearing "Clay Aiken" out. But not in a Brokeback Mountain sort of way.

    I can't remember a movie that has stirred up so much
    controversy! It's more than a movie - it's an attack on
    something that I guess has never been attacked before!
    There have been good westerns and bad westerns ...
    butt nevah a western like THIS! [:0][:0][:0]

    They're going to ram this movie down everyone's throat; good, bad or indifferent! We're going to like it; whether we like it or not. Am I a 'homophobe'? No, I just don't like being told what to watch or what I should do because some media giant thinks it's 'good for me'. Give yourself every Oscar, every self serving award you can dream of, but I'll watch what I want to watch, not what someone says I should watch, awards be damned.

    It's just a movie? True, but then why can't I just ignore it if I so choose? Why can't I open a newspaper, or turn on the TV, or flip on the Internet, or listen to the radio without having to see or hear about it?

    I grew up in Wyoming, a state rich in old west history, where there are still some real cowboys (and WY is not unique in this respect). I can assure you; they're not flocking to the theaters to watch this. Are there gay people in WY? Sure there are. Are they welcome? Sure they are. However, does this movie represent the way of the old west? I think not.

    Am I a homophobe? No, but I do think this movie treads on sacred ground, and that bothers me. The old west is an icon of adventure and exploration. Did events like this actually take place there? More than likely, but they certainly were the exception, and not the rule. If hollyweird wants to make a movie about one such event; fine, but don't turn around and attempt to make everyone believe it is the end all, be all, of westerns by lavishing it with every award imaginable...because it isn't!

    What's next? A Kinder Gentler Crusades? Bend Over Vietnam?

    If people want to watch it this movie, fine, they will. If they don't want to watch it that's fine too. In any case, they shouldn't have to tolerate having it bludgeoned into their skull at every opportunity.

    For what it's worth, the Chronicles of Narnia made over 5 TIMES the revenue Broke Back Excuses made in the same 8 weeks ($255M vs $51M), but how many Oscars did it get nominated for?????

    You be the judge.

    Oscar Schmosker...they vote the nominations themselves, then they vote the winners. Pointless.

    This film has all the merits of a quirky, small budget foreign flick. Had it been made in Italy, verbatim frame for frame, it would've garnered some recognition in Cannes for it's cinematography and original screenplay, and then gone on to that Great Blockbuster in the Sky. An assignment for film students to write essays on.

    I think the general dismay here has been how over hyped this insignificant niche film has been. It is most certainly an attempt to push an agenda, but then again Hollywood has always done that.

    It would appear the ticket buying public did not get the message. It is a movie guys, not one that seems very interesting, but a movie, that's all. The "gay agenda" what ever the heck that is, is not catching. It does not rub off. Besides, you are sure giving this movie a lot of attention for one you disdain. You guys can't stop playing games with trolls or picking scabs either, right?

    Why the heck some moron thinks that someone with total indifference towards homosexuals is a homophobe is beyond my comprehension. [?]

    I simply don't care about *, what they do, or whom they do it with and to. Shut up and be a fag all you want.

    God bless your pointed little head, I DON'T CARE!

    If it came down to watching a chick flick about * or a John Wayne war movie while drinking a beer and eating pork rinds; John Wayne is gonna get tuned in.

    There is a difference between being a homophobe (fear of gays)
    and being discusted by someone bringing up the idea of two cowboys
    smooching and cuddling by the camp fire out on the range.

    Urban Legend. All this hooplah is because the guys happen to be cowboys; had they instead been attorneys, no one would be upset or the least bit surprised. Remember Perry Mason? Was he a size queen or what?

    I frankly dont care at all to go and see a movie about a couple of gay guys dressed up like cowboys.

    That being said i have known of one person only to see that movie and that person is a woman.
    So i am curious...Is this thing being foisted on us as something great in moviedom by the gay elite or has it really been a box office success??

    How many homo cowboys has anyone you know ever seen?

    How many people want to be a homo cowboy?

    Not very damn many.

    So why would Hollywood spend millions making a movie about two characters who are probably very, very rare and unlikely to encounter in real life? It is because the film is simply a propaganda film telling the public that it is "O.K." to be a rugged, manly type and still lust after your buddy's butt.

    Next it will be another Homo propaganda film such as two homo cops working together, two NASCAR race drivers getting together, two coal miners getting together, and on and on.

    Nothing but immoral Hollywood earning millions of dollars off of us while at the same time ramming (lol) those homo propaganda films up our.....I mean down our throats..no wait, I mean....well you get the idea. If you just have to see themovie, go to one of the megaplexes and buy a ticket for one of good movies and once inside, slip into the homo propaganda movie.

    How many "cowboys" do ANY of you know? Fact is, that there were and are gay cowboys. Probably deep in the closet, but why would they be any different from anyone else? Why the mythology? What does it say about the men who were cowboys when it was cheaper to hire a cowboy than pay for barbed wire?

    Its the liberal agenda, changing the standards in our country through desensitisation. If ya see it enough it becomes common place and excepted, even embraced.
