I love Brokeback Mountain. Very Happy

I saw the movie alone, and being 13, it's kind of weird seeing two guys do it in a tent. But it's such a great love story, and everything about it is wonderful.

But I also think the book is better. In the movie, they add in a lot of things that didn't have to put in.

Buuuuuuut then again, BBM is one of the first movies to make me cry like a little wimp. I cried at the VERY last second, RIGHT when the credits rolled. XD;;

I saw it with my two friends, and when that happened they were like "...Umm...." and I was all "YESS!"

That film makes me ill. The two times I watched it I woke up the next morning with really bad flu and I was ill for about 2 weeks.

But it was an awesome film, although I think it dragged out a bit in places.

It wasn't as great as I expected it to be, but I loved it.
Like a lot of you, it was the first movie that made me tear up.
I respect Ang Lee so much for directing this movie. ^_^

I know you didn't mean it that way, but that's a stereotype, too. It's like classifying them as different than everyone else. Actually, I'm not gonna get into this.

I swore there was a thread to this, but it appears to have vanished. Anyway, I thought taht this movie was very overhyped. Sure, it was good, and interesting movie with a touching story. However, it was not all I was expecting will such rants I had heard over it. Overall, I doubt I would see it again.

Naw dude, Independent films are those black and white hippy movies. They're always about gay cowboys eating pudding

I dunno why I had to do that o_o

Anyway, I liked the film.

I dunno if this is true, but on IMDb it said that Heath almost broke Jake's nose during that scene.
