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.
