I see Hollywood is cramming this down my throat and claiming a huge success, but who in the hell is watching this thing?

Oh yes, and let's not forget the DUmmies.

I agree, but sticking the actor's "agenda" where the sun don't shine just can't honestly be acceptable.

Not me. A liberal friend wanted me to go with her, but I declined. Poor friend--she's always asking me to go to the latest movie, and my conservative principles keep me saying no.

Hollywood can stick their agenda where the sun don't shine. From what I understand, God knows why, but apparently they enjoy sticking things up there.

I've mentioned the film to a number of people at work. Most didn't know what I was talking about. I would estimate that only a very tiny minority of average Americans will see the flick. Naturally the elitist libs will flock to the flick to show solidarity with all the other "progressives".

about as hard of part

With regard to this movie do we really want to use "hard" and "part" in the same sentence?

I don't plan to see the movie, but I did read the short story in a collection of Western stories, and from what I recall, the movie is apparently a massive rework and expansion of the story to bring out all of the "sympathetic" angles. The way I remember it, the property owner caught the guys at it, ran them off, and that was it. Been a while, so maybe I'm missing something.

I imagine few people outside large metro areas(with large homosexual+/or liberal populations)will watch it,but i predict it'll get multiple Oscars.

"I hate the term homophobic"


yes, I'm with you.. Fear of homos is not something i've yet experienced. You know, of course, it's just a codeword used as a convenient label for indoctrination purposes. I despise this subterfuge and I don't stand for it....
