Brokeback Mountain nearly broke me

I rented Brokeback Mountain last night, because honestly I wanted to see what all the hype and all the awards were about. Well, I should have kept my 4.00 and bought coffees out of it. WHAT A DUMB MOVIE. We ended up turning it off it was so boring. This morning, after I came back from taking Colby to preschool, I thought I would watch the end, because, well, the affair had been going on for 20 years, how much longer could the movie be?? 30 freakin' minutes, that's how long. Nicole showed up just as I put it on and even she couldn't believe it. What a waste of time. I was not impressed. The storyline was weak, it jumped about way to much, and it honestly was very boring. I had to fight to get it out of the DVD player in the bedroom, and when I put it in the DVD player in the livingroom it kept asking for a parental control(which we have not set up on the DVD player). I should have taken that as a sign and not watched it. If you haven't seen it, DON'T. Save that 2.5 hours of your life and do something productive. Like... breathing in and out, washing your car in the rain, polishing your vacuum, anything.

Sorry you didn't like it Tina. I saw it at the Oxford while I was home over Christmas, but while it was a bit slow going, I fount it poignant and thought provoking... but to each their own right?
