    Curtis Wittwer was somewhat reluctant to see a film about two cowboys in love. The 64-year-old retired state worker, who saw "Brokeback Mountain" with his girlfriend Tuesday night, said he doesn't ordinarily seek out gay-themed movies. Still, he counted five reasons for seeing the film: It's a western, it's directed by Ang Lee, the screenplay is co-written by Larry McMurtry and it's been getting rave reviews. Plus, he was egged on after reading a New York Times piece by Larry David in which the comedian satirically complains that watching the movie could turn him gay. "It was just a beautiful...

    AP June 9, 2007 Welcome to "Brokeback Bedrock" After a year with major consultations with prominent gay groups, Hanna-Barbera, a unit of Time-Warner-AOL, has announced plans for a new animation movie, "Welcome to Brokeback Bedrock". "The 90 minute movie will bring Fred and the gang out of the Judeo-Christian stone age and into the progressive modern times" said Richard Bonedance, entertainment consultant for the HRC(Human Rights Campaign), the largest gay lobby group in the US. In the movie the way Fred and Barney meet Wilma and Betty, is changed somewhat from the original TV series, but reflects the goundbreaking and...
  • Brokeback Mountin Bombs at Box Office; Holiday BO smells

    A gross of $11,000 per screen is quite good. If you're an autumn Wide Release, opening on 3500 screens across the country. When a movie opens on only 69 of the nation's largest theaters in a few dozen of the largest cities, with almost all of your target audience within range of those theaters, it's pretty bad. Brokeback Mountain played in fourteen times more theaters this Friday than last Friday, and made less than four times as much money, only $760,000. It looks like the movie will make considerably less than its $15 million budget before the Academy Awards come...
  • Hollywood glorifies adulterous sodomy

    In one of the most deadly phenomena of our time – or any time – Hollywood has produced a film called "Brokeback Mountain," which glorifies and glamorizes that male sodomy which remains the cause of so many thousands of deaths by AIDS – and now by syphilis. The Washington Post's Style section reports (with more than apparent approval) that this latest sodomy-acceptance propaganda has lead the year's films with seven Golden Globe nominations. And in Los Angeles, New York and San Francisco (those three leading AIDS-distribution points) this new movie "opened in five sold-out theaters." But the Post also reports:...
  • The Straight Side of Brokeback Mountain (Alert: Studio Issues 'Hetero Friendly' Ads to Fool Viewers)

    It's certainly one of the most favorably reviewed movies of the year, and a major player in the best picture race at the Oscars.But 'Brokeback Mountain' isn't the easiest sell to audiences unaccustomed to films that deal frankly with same sex relationships: even at a recent screening in Los Angeles' liberal Westside, some moviegoers broke into inappropriate (but no doubt tension relieving) laughter at a scene in which the wife of taciturn cowboy (Heath Ledger) catches her husband in a passionate embrace with Jack Twist. (Jake Gyllenhall)Perhaps to remind viewers (and voters) that there is more to director Ang Lee's...
