Moni - you are so right. I've watched several films since BBM and haven't really enjoyed any of 'em. Even while watching Proof, all I thought was "Gwyneth doesn't make for a good Ennis."

Tee-hee, I was thinking the same thing!!! The chemistry between Jack and Ennis was a thousand times better than the one between hal and Catherine, although Jake was great in the love scenes with Gwyneth. Come to think about it, Gwyneth never does a good romantic scene, although she can play quite well otherwise. Like a player who never knows how to pass the ball.

Ray and I agreed that Crash would have been MUCH better if it didn't win the Oscar..

I saw it.  It was a fairly enjoyable film but after an hour, I found myself thinking "oKAY! I get it! Racism = Bad.. please stop punching me in the face with it!!!"

My pick after BBM, would have been Goodnight and Good Luck. David Strathairn is one of the most underrated actors of our time.
Chut up!

LMAO!!  That's SO true - for ANY of Jake's romantic movies.  He had the best chemistry and most convincing onscreen relationship with Heath!  No contest!!   :D

I voted none, since none of them were my favorite. I didn't see Munich, but finally got around to seeing the others. I like Good Night and Good Luck, but Constant Gardner was my favorite behind BBM. And I like Pride and Prejudice a lot too.

Same here. Even after all the years between, I haven't seen a single one of them. Not out of spite, but out of lack of interest. Albeit Munich probably is worth it.
I remember that after Brokeback, I couldn't watch any other movie for months. :o
Not on TV, not on DVD, not in theater - no movie held my interest for more than ten minutes. OTOH, I probably wouldn't even had the time to find the two hours, I pulled enough night shifts on the interent as it was. :laugh:

The only one I think I saw anything of was Capote. Don't remember much though

I watched Crash just to view the competition.  It wasn't a film; it was a blunt instrument, and I had no desire ever to see it again.  

I saw Capote and liked it fine.  However good PSH was, it's still just an impression of a real person.  Heath created Ennis out of thin air, and incredible accomplishment.
