Sunday I rented Brokeback Mountain and started watching it while Mike was doing something else. I figured I needed to judge for myself what everyone else was raving about. As soon as Heath Ledger and Jake Gyllenhaal appeared on the screen, Nathan ran over to the TV and pointed right at Jake and shouted "Dad!!!" Mike happened to be walking in at that moment and replied "THAT's not DAD!! That's a gay cowboy!!!" I busted up laughing.
I did not like this movie. It was extremely slow. It was not all that romantic. I knew there was gonna be a kissing scene but nobody told me there was a gay sex scene. I find it a bit inconceivable that there is no prelude to the sex, they don't even seem to know they are gay or attracted to one another, they just all of the sudden start...well...you know.
The scenery and music are gorgeous, but the rest of it falls flat in my opinion. The plot just isn't thick enough. In short, it's a snoozer.
