Why would anyone see a movie when they can write a review instead?

So, how can I trust anything you say?

LOL! Wrong focus on your part.

Just because attendance doesn't factor in to the Oscars doesn't mean that there isn't an agenda behind the Oscar nominations. Or that there isn't an agenda at work with the "Sold Out" sign.

I am just wondering why you'd make such a bold claim when you didn't know what you were talking about. I am going to be seriously suspicious of everything you say now because of that. Why would there be an agenda behind the oscar nods? Most conservatives don't pay attention to the oscars...so what exactly would the 'agenda' be? And have you seen the movie? For all you know it's a GREAT movie...

Ok...besides all that...

What is it about this movie? Why do you assume there is an agenda? It's just a movie. That's all. Why are you assuming that it is more than just that.

I've actually been wondering this for a few days, that is why I stumbled onto this site.

I understand that you aren't fond of homosexuality. I understand that you don't like hollywood, but why do you believe this particular movie has some motive other than, it was a short story that was well recieved and someone thought it'd make a good movie?

Some people may like it, some people may not...but I don't get why everyone is jumping on THIS movie...Help me, I really really really don't get it. And I'd love to understand.

Suspicious of me and what I post? No problem, there are tens of thousands of others here, filter and question everything we all say.

You are asking questions that could be described as 'flavor of life' questions. The short answer and best answer I think is to explore other threads here at FR and see the flavor.

There's a whole lot more to life than a movie. As you can see by how quickly this thread died, most of us think so.

Good luck.

Will you just answer my questions please? Your fancy foot work is duely noted.

I don't really know a damn thing about this place. I typed in "Michael Medved Brokeback Mountain" into google and I ended up here...among clones of my father who worships talk radio (my eyes are rolling incase you can't sense it)...

Just answer my questions, get real please.

You insulted me, you insulted my husband. My questions were honest to goodness plain questions. I know very well that people tend to project thier own behaviors onto other people but I have no other motive than to have you answer the qusetions...they are not "flavor or life" questions...JUST QUESTIONS...so JUST ANSWER THEM...it's easy. :)

I know the "flavor" of this place, you ALL say the same things the other rightwingers in my life say, word for word, more or less just repeating the nonsense you hear from those on daytime talk radio.

So suprise me be just being direct and answer my questions...I beg you.

Two points in response:

My answers would strike you as ' just repeating the nonsense you hear from those on daytime talk radio'.

The bigger misconception you have is that we are just repeating what talk radio, Fox News, and all those others are spouting.

You've got it backwards. it is THEY who are feeding back to us things we've believed in our whole lives. When I first heard Rush, nearly 15? years ago, I was riveted. For the very first time in my life, I was hearing commentary that reflected what I believed my whole life. The moment I realized he was not just making up a speech to give on air, but that he really believed what he was saying, I was hooked. As were millions of others.

I've lived my life as a conservative since I was a kid, and to hear my beliefs being echoed was, and still is, very satisfying.

Roll your eyes, even laugh, I can take it.

Not only that, I have tremendous faith the the majority of the American voters see things my way. Test this out for yourself. I'll wager you have a good idea what answers the 'reighwingers' would give to your questions. Post them here, and I'll bet they align closely with what I would answer. I'll read them and let you know.
