I Think I Missed Brokeback Fever  
So I finally saw Brokeback Mountain (yes, in it's entirety, for those of you who know why that's worth noting). The verdict?

Meh, it was okay.

Oh, I wasn't the only one. XD

I know a few other people who were pretty "meh" about it, but I also know a bunch of people who thought it was the greatest thing ever made. I tended to believe the former, because they were my closest friends that I had a lot more in common with and knew my tastes better. I can see where certain people would fall over themselves for it, but the way I figure, any movie where I am constantly checking the time to see if it's over yet isn't that good. But I can also think of a worse use of two hours.

Still would rather spend my two hours and fifteen minutes of "gay time" watching Rent for the thousandth time, though. :P

It's not bad done (well acted, nice OST, beautifully filmed) but is SO BORING. Maybe because I don't like romance/drama no matter how much gay is inside. :/

I personally thought it would have been better had it been condensed greatly.

My view on Brokeback Mountain, that I've repeated to Christine (tolavieboheme) a thousand times: ONE GAY MOVIE! JUST ONE IS ALL I'M ASKING FOR! THAT DOES NOT END IN BREAKUP, DEATH</>, OR BOTH!!

To which she replied by steering me to David Searching, god bless her.

I really need to pick up that move. And Open House. Because I am a sick, obsessive little man I heard they are both very good. But as I said to a friend earlier, my first thought upon finishing Brokeback Mountain was "hmmm...it's two hours, fifteen minutes long. I could have watched Rent again during that time." So I guess enough was said there.

You must see Open House.

I've seen Open House, and the second time I watched it I was talking to Christine on AIM and I was like, "Ho. Ly. Shit. HE JUST SAID FANTABIRIFICOUS!!!" I almost had a seizure I was laughing so hard. David Searching should be coming in the mail any day now...Please god, please.

I'm pretty meh about it too. I was dragged to the theatre by my 13 year old fangirlish friend to see it, and I actually spent half the movie telling her not to stare at the Anthony Rapp look-alike sitting two seats in front of her. I don't like Heath Ledger or Jake Gyllenhaal (or however it's spelt) either, so I also kinda missed out there. I kept my mind open when I went, and came out thinking there were other movies I would've liked to of spent my money on instead.

I'll be seeing it Thursday. I hope it's at least as good as the book. I doubt it will be as breathtaking as everyone gushes about it.

...I recommend the book *nods* I also thought that there was a good hour there that didn't need to be there....along with those 5 minutes of staring off into nothing, or focusing on an actors face that has no emotion on it....

Yea, otherwise I loved it XD
