Oh, and also. . .

Mel and I happened to catch "Brokeback Mountain" last night on cable.

Could someone PLEASE tell me why there was all the hype about that movie again? It was so bad, it was comical. Honestly, Mel and I were laughing at it, and I'm pretty sure that's not the reaction it was going for.

Key quote, from Mel: "There was a lot more emotion when Mom found underwear that wasn't Dad's in the driveway."

Yeah, it was presented in full screen this past weekend. If you woulda saw it in widescreen, you might have come to a different conclusion about it (any dramatic movie presented in fullscreen typically comes off as nothing more weighty than a TV-movie).

I get the impression you're pretty into widescreen viewing, Thomas?

I saw it at the theatre and thought the scenery was pretty, but the movie was horrible. I didn't believe the relationship, wasn't very impressed with the acting, and noticed the accents came & went throughout the movie. When leaving the theatre I noticed people were either in awe & loved it or wanted the previous 2 hours back to get a root canal or something equally as fun. Maybe I was expecting too much after all the hype.

i was much more moved by the performances of the women in that film than the oh-so-unbelievable male gayness. particularly Michelle Williams' performance - i really felt for her. i know a lot of people had trouble with her character because they'd watched her on Dawson's Creek, but since i never did, i had no preconception about her at all. randy quaid was also pretty good - but yeah, the scenery really stole the show on the big screen.
