I am horrified at the reactions to Broke Back Mountain. I never knew how many people we so anti-gay in my community until that movie came out and everyone seemed to have an opinion on whether is was a "good" movie or not even though most of the people who commented on it hadn't even seen it. Now, it seems, the world it going to hell and self-appointed saviors are living among us.

Reading the "I haven't seen this but I hate it" comments on this site, I'm reminded of an Al Franken anecdote in which he compassionately relays the distress of a woman offended by his tricky Earth-logic. I'm paraphrasing, but her conservative polemic went, "It's not fair how when some political question is debated on TV, the Republicans always stumble, and then they're always opposed by some very smart liberal like Al Franken." Her objection poignantly underscores the liberal bias of the press and the universities; those institutions are unfairly overrun with smart people. It's diabolical how ideas that champion the dignity and deservingness of the many over the greed and fear of the few always seem to flow from the pens of the articulate and, thus, purloin a public hearing. No wonder y'all are outraged.

Passion of the Christ received three Oscar nominations:

Best Achievement in Cinematography
Caleb Deschanel

Best Achievement in Makeup
Keith VanderLaan
Christien Tinsley

Best Achievement in Music Written for Motion Pictures, Original Score
John Debney

But nothing that actually matters.

"Anti-Christian, anti-Israel, pro-terrorist, pro-atheist, pro-homosexual-transgendered and all the rest.

Hooray for Hollywood!

I need to take a shower".

Me too, but Hollywood needs to gargle.

Have no desire to see any of the mentioned films, probably like the rest of America (judging from the combined box office revenues). Won't see any Clooney movies; there's no way in hell he's getting a dime from me. "Good Night and Good Luck" was specifically written to counter Coulter's "Slander."

I read enough of "Brokeback Mountain" reviews to learn one of the scenes amounts to rape if it were straight sex.

Some of the most funny stuff I've read about BM was that it's not about gay sex...it's about two people in love who don't know what to call it.

Hell, I do. Gay.
