Hype it up!

So I finally saw Brokeback Mountain aka Bareback Mountain aka Bareback Mounting (thanks Scribe) aka Bareback Riders (thanks Nick Stephenson) last night.

I know, I know... it's really after the fact, etc. And to be honest, when I hadn't seen it in its first week of release, I just kept putting off seeing it. So many people kept saying to me 'Oh it's fantastic, you have to see it' which always makes me think... "I'm going to hate it."

And usually I do. But this time, I didn't. I thought it was a very good film.

But that's where my praise ends. It was a very good film but personally, I thought that the plot was predictable. (I won't write why I thought this in case anyone reading this hasn't seen the film yet... ) It will still probably sweep the Oscars. Not that I believe that is indicative of its quality. (I mean, look at 'Forrest Gump'?!?!)

However, Heath Ledger was amazing. And gorgeous.

So congratulations, Heath. You are my new Boyfriend of the Week. Everyone else seems to be in love with Jake, so I thought I would console you. Yes, well done. I know. It's big of me.

i agree completely!

TM is very glad that Ziggy has the same opinion as him...

I saw the film a couple of weeks ago and was..well..bored..

Ang Lee's use of time and the annoying guitar solo that was on repeat was gut rentching...

While I thought it was a good film overall and there was some great eye candy (I am not fussy - I would have them both - biting or not!)...I was not overly impressed!!!

Rocked the Mike? Who's Mike?

scribe said...

While Rome burns, people fiddle on about Bent-Back & Mounted. sad state of affairs...

DaBich said...

Phoenix, was wondering the same thing!

ziggystardust73 said...

I think Mike may have his own blog.

Scribe, I don't think Rome is burning, actually.

DaBich said...

Ziggy, you're right, it's Scribe that's on fire ;X

He looks smelly--why would he be your new boyfriend of the week? Unless of course you've given him a bath.

In Turkey, they call it "Faggot Cowboys". Or so I hear. Which I find weird because I heard the Turks were friendly people willing to bend over forward to please you.

Or is that the Greeks?

ziggystardust73 said...

Bluez... wait till it comes on DVD!

Haily, welcome! - "Faggot Cowboys" just doesn't seem to have the same ring to it though, don't you think? oo-er, I just said ring.

DaBich said...

Bluez I haven't seen it either, and I don't want to see it.

Ziggy ~ ring a ding?
lol

A MIKE people, A MIKE!! otherwise known as a "mic" or a "microphone". Don't tell me you've never heard this expression. Listen to some old school Hip Hop.

scribe said...

Damn Europeans LOL

ziggystardust73 said...

ha ha Anhoni, I knew what you were referring to. I was just being difficult.

I used to have an old school record player which had a built in microphone; the whole unit was built out of red and white plastic. So don't speak to me about old school hip hop ha ha.

Anhoni Patel said...

oooooh. Did you just serve me? Did I just get served??
