"A" is antihero

"es, antihero Jack does meet one of the time-honored antihero ends at the hands of the vile side of civilization that simply cannot abide his 'natural' identity. But our hero Ennis, our upstanding frontier man who stays close to the land but resists nature's temptations, and who wants -- but mostly fails -- to do right by his adoring daughters has an arguably more painful fate (and Ledger makes you feel that pain). He's left alone in his isolated trailer to contemplate what might have been and could never be."

"B" is buttoned-up

ammering from the cold, Ennis, ordinarily buttoned-up and constrained, makes his way inside the tent and soon starts unbuttoning and getting down to business, while buttoning up about it the next morning.

"C" is credentials

exactly Jack and Ennis were picked for the sheep herding job we'll never know, but it doesn't seem anyone cared about their credentials.

"D" is degrees

"ou got a extra blanket?" inquired Ennis, thinking that would be enough to keep him warm even if the fire died and the outside temperature dropped several degrees.

"E" is egregiousness

elling for Monroe was Alma's response to the egregiousness of Ennis's threats.

"F" is fab

ear after year, Ennis and Jack lead pretty dull and gloomy lives, the only thing fab that ever happened was their "infrequent couplings"

"G" is groundswell
« Reply #22526 on: April 21, 2012, 01:47:43 pm »
ep, Brett S. Harrison of South Philly Review, correctly predicted the outcome of the "Best Actor" race: 

Best Actor

The Nominees
Philip Seymour Hoffman, "Capote"
Heath Ledger, "Brokeback Mountain"
Terrence Howard, "Hustle & Flow"
Joaquin Phoenix, "Walk the Line"
David Strathairn, "Good Night, and Good Luck"

Don't be deceived by the groundswell for "Brokeback Mountain." This category belongs to Hoffman, the longtime stage actor who has distinguished himself in numerous character turns on film. He has snagged almost every award he's been up for, but Howard is surprisingly handicapped in Vegas behind Hoffman and Ledger.

Who will win: Hoffman
Most likely upset: Ledger
Stranger things have happened: Howard

"H" is hesitance
« Reply #22527 on: April 21, 2012, 09:08:27 pm »
"a know it could be like this, just like this, always." Jack told Ennis without a moment's hesitance, ready to chuck it all for a sweet life with him.

"I" is intolerantly

earning for a life together was to no avail, when society treated gays so intolerantly.

"L" is lubricated

ou got a extra blanket?" inquired Ennis, so lubricated he could hardly see straight.
