Struggling with an issue you'd like to share, kill?


Yes, Grammar. I was an ESL student. But saying "He's gay" sounds wrong to me.

Now that being said, what shows on TV don't have some type of Gay charter? In the last 20 years it seems that most shows have at least on gay or there is at least one gay themed show. You know what? Fine go and be gay, have a sore butt for teh buttseks and get the hell out of my life as I chose not to have teh buttseks and insead have reporductive sex with my wife.

Your wife doesn't do anal? Doesn't she love you?


Are you kidding? I'm sure mrs. Hewey only likes it nice and missionary, like the good lord intended.

OMG, guys! I saw it, and now I have an uncontrollable urge for dick!!! You've gotta help me! The Ghey Agenda is turning me Ghey!!
 
2005-12-13 05:14:40 PM  
Okay, everyone who KNEW that this was NOT Lee's first film involving teh ghey (and no, I'm not counting the Hulk.) Three- four- okay, maybe a dozen. I don't think "Wedding Banquet" got any awards (havn't checked) and this is basically that story transposed on the west in the 60's. I think that, as in the case of the Hulk and Crouching Tiger, Mr. Lee stayed true to the art form of film and badly miscalculated the audience reaction. Given how he's broached this topic before, I'd think that everyone falling all over themselves to declare this the new Gone With the Wind is coming as a real surprise.

Oh. The alternate titles? Farking hilarious. I think "Bareback Mountian" is still the best though.

Maybe off topic, but I once met Annie Proulx who wrote the story - she is the biggest biatch in the world.

Well I knew about James Whale, the director, before I saw Gods and Monsters (which I found completely tedious). I loved his movies, though; Bride especially.

I think it might be too much to ask of a straight person to relate to strictly gay issues. I can't make myself go there. But who cares? It is important that people treat each other decently and with respect, not that we empathize with each other's sexual tastes.

FTA: In addition to Clooney and Lee, best director nominations went to Woody Allen ("Match Point"), Peter Jackson ("King Kong"), Fernando Meirelles ("The Constant Gardener") and Steven Spielberg ("Munich").

This was truly a down year for movies.

I wonder what the director and writer of Chuck and Buck did with all of his Oscars that Hollywood obligatory gives to any movie dealing with homo-sehshual themes?

For someone who really hates this gay stuff, you sure do have some good knowledge of semi-obscure homosexually themed independent films.

I'd go with the pantheon of 80's action films.

TOP GUN - multiple locker room scenes, late for a date because he's too busy playing oily, shirtless beach volleyball
COMMANDO - the villain wore leather pants, a chain mail vest, a flat top, and a pushbroom mustache. he even stated "i don't need the girl." Arnold even saved him for last. gay.
OVER THE TOP - all that oily man flesh. sly's name is Lincoln Hawk. His son's name is Mike... so what is his son's name? Did NAMBLA write that film?
 
2005-12-13 05:23:17 PM  
killdawabbitt: Gayest (unintentionally gay) movie I've ever seen is "Interview with the Vampire". That movie alone probably sent Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt into the Gayan Hall Of Flame(er).

"Unintentional?" You've never read the books, I'd wager, because there's nothing unintentional about it.
 
2005-12-13 05:23:24 PM  
I'm gay, so naturally my friends just assume I want to see this movie. And who knows, maybe I will, but so far I've seen about 200-300 mentions of it online and the only farking thing I know is that it features two gay cowboys.

Literally. That's it. There had better be more to it than that for farking $7. If I wanted to see a weak three minute concept stretched into a movie I'd go see anything featuring a cast member from Saturday Night Live.

And Heath Ledger isn't a strong selling point for me since he's odd looking and about as emotive as Gillian Anderson. Jake G., on the other hand, is well worth the price of admission. Hmm. Will consult the gay magic 8 ball.
 
2005-12-13 05:23:34 PM  
I think this movie deserves praise for being historically accurate. There can be little doubt that a lot of Cowboys have screwed each other.

And sometimes their fans too:

IRVING, Texas (AP) -- As sleet and snow gushed through the hole in the roof of Texas Stadium, ice formed on Steve DeBerg's eyebrows and the tarp froze to the plastic grass.

On the game's pivotal play, one Dallas player lost a shoe and another player lost his way.

Miami coach Don Shula said he'd never seen anything like it. And if he hadn't, there can't be many who had.

On Thanksgiving 1993, the Dolphins beat the Cowboys 16-14 on a field goal by Pete Stoyanovich as time expired. Seconds earlier, Dallas blocked Stoyanovich's kick, but Leon Lett curiously revived the dead ball and the Dolphins recovered.

No, Top Gun was far, FAR gayer than LOTR. At least the elves don't have the slogan, "It's not gay if you're underway."

a movie about two gay cowboys is a good thing???

\I'm not the one who is confused.
 
2005-12-13 05:25:51 PM  
Ok, since it was asked, no Gayness is not a disease that can be cured. It is a chosen behavour that can be started or stopped by choice.

I'll say this again, I don't care if you are gay, bi or strait, I don't want to see it. Not in public anyway. I also don't agree with people trying to push the idea that homosexual intercourse is normal. Just as I don't agree with people pushing sexual relationships with children as normal.

Chose what you want, but don't expect me to congratulat you for it.

I threw in the BS for referance, not to brag as I know many here could have BA's or even MA's as well as BS's and MS's. I did not list it but my first trip through College was for a BFA, Fine Art- Scuplture/Art History so I have been all around teh gay!

I know these are only my opinions and I do not present them as anything else, although feel free to look up the wild dog and Homoseuality research, I am working on an update on what was done in the 70's and 80's and applying it to Lesbian Cats(Seriously).

As for this movie, I will watch it when it is out on HBO or BlowTime or maybe Skinamax, but my opinions are formed from comments here and from people who have seen the movie.

The movie shows two cowboys in the 60's in a gay relationship in Wyoming as a normal occurance, just a little of a streach. Now if it was the story of two bikers in Sourthern California in a Gay relationship I would not have a problem with that.

/yea I'm a career student, what you going to do about it?

News Flash to fundies who hate teh buttsecks:

This flick wasn't made for queers. It was made for your upstanding, flag-waving Red State wives and daughters who are frantically flicking their beans in the shower at the thought of these two hunks of man-meat getting it on. Ang Lee was told as much by the film's producer when he signed on, which is why they ripped off the movie poster design from "Titanic" and not "Can't Stop The Music."

So, the next time you're cramming your mighty two inches into the missus and she's screaming "Oh God," quit fooling yourself it's you she's fantasizing about.

although IMO "clown penis dot fart" is the funniest phrase in the modern english lexicon, I have to say that some of the entries in this thread have been, on the whole, more than agreeable to my admittedly askew sense of humour, in keeping with the grain of the headline.

There. I just saved a few gayans from dealing with some fundies.


Attention Red States: The problem is not Hollywood, they are not out to get you. They refer to your homes as "flyover states". No one is trying to force this movie on you. You have a choice: gay cowboys or giant ape. You can pick which one you want to see. Please listen to my man killdawabbit, he is correct.

When they make a movie about lesbian cowgirls, it gets sent to the backroom and is called porn?

Quit fooling yourself. You try and soften your bigotry by saying you don't care, and then proclaim that it should be banished from the public eye because it makes you uncomfortable. You think your one sexually confused friend gives you the almighty insight to this issue? Well, I've known a few gay folks myself and from what I've heard its not a choice, its who these people are and its what makes them happy.
