Let's See the Movie and Discuss it Here!
« on: July 14, 2009, 08:59:05 pm »
Here is the place for us to discuss our revisiting of the movie Brokeback Mountain this summer. Please view the movie before July 20, 2009 and then it will be fresh in our hearts and minds for a new discussion!

Have you noticed how many theaters are showing BBM this summer? Even Lincoln Center in New York City!! Brokeback Mountain and its message is timeless, and even more relevant in the summertime!!

(Aussies, please substitute winter here!!)

Unfortunately I'm not gonna make the July 20th deadline, but I do feel and itchin' to watch the movie again.  I ain't seen it since seein' it on the big screen at the Samuel Goldwin theatre last August.  (That screening was such perfection, I didn't want anything to mar it.)  But, I'm gettin' the itch...

You say there are theatres showing it besides the Lincoln Center?  Where?  Do you have a list?

Did ennione have a chance to see BBM again last weekend? I was fortunate to see it again in late June in high definition, along with fellow Brokies. I had some interesting new thoughts I would like to share...as long as I know there would be others out there interested in discussing!

It's showing August 1 in Paris and August 11 in New York City. Surely you can make it to one of those places!! No?? Well, then, have an exclusive showing on your own computer or TV!

I did check Fandango, imdb and a few other places, but no luck finding out where BBM is being revived this summer. Please let us know if it is playing in your city.

By the way, welcome DozyEmbrace! Great to see you here!!

Who has watched Brokeback Mountain again this summer? What have you noticed that was different?

For me, it was the colors. I had forgotten how saturated and passionate the colors were in the movie. Especially the reds, as in Alma's lips and clothing, and the blues, as in Jack's eyes and the clothing and jeans.

I really want to watch the movie again, but I'm waiting for the perfect moment, or the perfect big screen showing.  It's been a year now since I seen it last...

Well, friend, we are now at the week of the big storm coming in from the Pacific...I believe the exact date was August 13, 46 years ago. A perfect time as enni, don't you think?? Grab that DVD, make yourself a nice margarita, and go for it!! And know that somewhere a true Brokie is watching the same time as you...
