I dont' understand the R rating....there isn't anything really in this movie...maybe a pg13...

More like PG. Period. Do they even use that rating anymore?

Again, it's because of the "homosexual element". Of course it is! What else could it be?

It really pisses me off, to be perfectly honest with you. But hey! At least we have our DVDs now! :D

Dogs have owners. Cats have staff.

Yeah I don't get the R rating also, I think it is uncalled for.

As for the stores, many still have Brokeback on the shelves, I think it has a lot to do with it being a low budget, below the radar film. There are a lot of good films that never make the shelves, and if it wern't for the internet no one would ever hear of them.

Funny the details you can see on the DVD, now that the vaseline has been scraped off the lens!

Watch closely through the frosted shower door during the conversation between the mean-spirited (and shrewd!) Jeanne and the guilty Zach. This is NOT a spoiler. I'm just sayin.'   ::)

(You wouldn't have noticed that watching the Chinese video site--and a little help with the DVD 'Commentary' track, heh-heh!)

I will be looking for that. I just paused it to post when Tori brushes off Zach at the grocery store parking lot, she has no tags on her car.  :laugh:

Noticed that too and I haven't even got the DVD yet!  ;D :D

Do they say anything about their tattoos in the commentary?

I have not been able to see it on TV yet, I am at work and saw it on the pc. Can't wait to get home and see the comentary. Can't wait until you get your copy too snork.

JMMG, I looked, I may have to go back and look again.  ;)

And I had always thought those were rectangular rocks Zach and Tori were sitting on, they are bales of hay!

I can see now subtle expressions that add a bit more, like when Zach tells Shaun he had previously been accepted to CalArts, there i this gleems of recognition like "oh, now I understand better where your coming from".
