'Brokeback Mountain' Leads Globes With 4 Awards (No more movies for me)
FoxNews ^ | 01/17/2006 | FoxNews

Posted on 01/17/2006 5:12:11 AM PST by devane617

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. — The "gay cowboy movie" "Brokeback Mountain" led the Golden Globes Monday night with four prizes, including best dramatic film and the directing honor for Ang Lee. As expected, it was a triumphant night for films dealing with homosexuality and transsexuality. Along with the victories for "Brokeback Mountain," acting honors went to Felicity Huffman in a gender-bending role as a man preparing for sex-change surgery in "Transamerica" and Philip Seymour Hoffman as gay author Truman Capote in "Capote." "I know as actors our job is usually to shed our skins, but I think as people our job is to become who we really are, and so I would like to salute the men and women who brave ostracism, alienation and a life lived on the margins to become who they really are," Huffman said.

He's talking about Conservative actors in Hollywood? Or men who boink sheep?

I see several movies per week, but vow today that my movie viewing days are over. I refuse to give money to Hollywood after last night's mess. We control the money, it is now tome to show them...

I've said it before: In Frank Capra's day, Hollywood was just as dirty, but they knew who paid the bills and had the stars under their thumbs. "Press agents" went around and made sure that if Agnes Moorehead was a lesbian, you didn't hear about it. They produced Biblical epics because that sold in the Midwest, and the movie business then was a business, all about making what people wanted to buy.

Today? It's all about impressing your peers in the little pocket Hell called Hollywood. And they wonder why receipts are going down...down...down.

No, just go see the decent ones. Hollywood knows one thing, the bottom line. When movies like The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe make a killing and the crap like this are a bust, they will begin to correlate the two eventually. Support those who make decent films and boycott those who don't, it will get through to them eventually.

Brokedick Mountain, queers and steers / fags on horses.

and

The Palestinian film "Paradise Now," a dark tale of two Arab friends tapped to carry out a suicide bombing in Israel, won the prize for foreign-language film that glamourises and sympathizes with terrorists.

The awards are meaningless. I don't think Narnia got anything but has out-grossed Broke Back by $230,000,000 and both have been out 6 weeks.

Keep your teenagers from spending money at the boxoffice and you'll be more effective. Much of the Follywood slop is aimed at the youth market, though somehow I can't imagine too many straight eighteen-year-olds wanting to see "Homos on the Range."

Oddly patronizing, the Paradise movie. Would Hollowwood have ever come within a hundred miles of a story regarding a CHRISTIAN Paradise?

I think you are mistaken. Hollywood would rather push their warped agenda and reflect their corrupt values than make wholesome, family oriented movies. Even if they are profitable. Look at the stink they made about, "The Passion of the Christ".

Look at the success of FoxNews. They are the only cable news channel gaining viewers, yet instead of emulating their right of center viewpoint, all three networks and the other cable news channels continue with the liberal bias.

I agree with you. Look how HW has changed family-tv. Take a look at the crap that is on every night of the week. Think HW does not have an agenda? Even the commercials have pushed over the line.

Hollywoods sweet smell of success, smells more of rump wranglers and their stinky habits.

I will only go to movies that do not offend my sensibilities.

Wanna see a real cowboy movie, try "Open Range" or "Unforgiven"

So, no more watching on cable or renting DVDs either? They get a cut from all of that, of course.

Friend of mine was an investigator for a district attorney's office. He had to interview a pervert who had been having sex with a pig. The quote is his response to my friend 'being funny'.

"No. I’m not funny when I try to be. Seems I get better results just trying to talk normal. Of course, there were a few times in court I had the judge with his head down and shoulders shaking. Now one that was a bit funny, was my tape statement about asking the pig f****r if he knew if the "Pig In Question" was a male or female. Of course, he got real offended that I might even suggest that he would have sex with a MALE pig. Didn't want anyone to think he was a perverted, homosexual pig porker! Oh heavens No...thought never crossed my mind.

They edit my tape statements now. Hmmmm .."

The 'decent ones' are the ones that are financing the agenda-driven ones.

Money the public pays to see Narnia helps offset the losses of Brokeback.

I have long held the view you suggest. However, though perhaps it's my cynicism, but I wonder if Hollywood makes such movies as "Chronicles" - which thus far has grossed over $540 million - just so they can subsidize the other propaganda dreck they cram down us?

Hollywood = Homo on the Range

HoooooMoooo on the range,
Where the queer and the gerbil both play,
Where often is heard,
A "Fabulous" word,
And the sheepherders eat pudding all day.

I have been to a movie theater about five times in the past ten years. I would consider two of those movies decent.

I realize it may be detox to some people, but not going to the movie theater is not a difficult thing. :]

I really see Hollywood for the bad acting and hype they are full of.

Think of the money one can save... Buying movie tickets supports liberal and socialist endeavors.

It is true. :]

Doesn't work.

They simply use the huge profits from those films that you do see to subsidize the ones that you can't stand.

And thats how it works. - You still pay for them to produce this crap.

Absolutely true. So much more money could flow into Hollywood, if they just made the movies that most people want to see. But they don't. They have a "business model" which is not aimed at money. The Leftists and the Pink Mafia that run the studios care only for their agenda.

Welcome to our little group (the wife and I). We haven't been to a theater since "Dances With Wolves" in 1990.

There's nothing we ever want to see so why bother. I guess that makes us 'sticks-in-the-mud' but what the heck!

As of Jan 13-16 weekend Narnia has grossed $263,441,000 and Brokeback Mountain has only grossed $32,088,000. Of course Brokeback has only been released to 683 theaters as compared to 3224 for Narnia. But that breaks down to $81712 per theater for Narnia compared to $46980 for Brokeback. With those numbers I know which one I would be showing in my theater if I owned one.

Well said and true. What these people did in their private lives was never an issue for me. From my youth through my maturity I always enjoyed their product and spent my money (I'm 62).

Today, instead, it's a different story. I'd still feel the same if they'd 1) Keep their mouths shut; 2) Keep their immoralities to themselves; 3)Provided a product worth seeing. They don't follow any of these ethical or rational business practices, however, and the wife and I have been a 'no show' at theaters since 1990.

Oops, gotta run - need to crank up the DVD recorder and see what's on the Westerns Channel and TCM!
