She really likes it, and says it's an incredibly well-written and well filmed story. According to her, it's a lot like "The Age of Innocence" which is probably her all-time favorite movie. She doesn't really see BM as a movie about "gay cowboys" as much as a movie about forbidden love and tragic relationships. In her mind, it could just as much have been about two married heterosexuals in Victorian England having an affair - and that the story is all about the struggle and the tension of the relationship - and that stuff that you women supposedly like. (.. as opposed to REAL story-telling, that involves explosions, guns, spaceships and monsters - and maybe boobies)

I guess I can see her point though.

Anyhoo - just wanted to share the fact, in case any of ya'll like movies like "Age of Innocence" or other tragic love stories, and aren't completely freaked out by gay cowboys. It may actually be a really good movie.

Does she have "issues"? Once should have been enough for anyone (not me - I won't give my hard earned dollars to hollywood for a gay flick)

If they put out a lesbian cowgirl movie with two hot young actresses in it I would try to think of a way to justify seeing it twice to my wife as well. I'm just saying...

Well, you don't have to buy a ticket. Just sneak in the back door.

They also have great deals on popcorn buckets with holes cut in the bottom.

Yes - my wife is clearly retarded, and her understanding of a movie that she has actually seen is obviously less than that of people who have not seen it.


In case you didn't notice, this thread is specifically in the Women's Forum, as a "public service announcement" that women who enjoy touchy-feeley movies like "The Age of Innocence" or "Romeo and Juliet" (and who aren't homophobic) might actually like this movie.

Go all out. Marathon Rambo, Terminator and Missing in Action.
Know the Chuck.



But do any of those have boobies?

What makes Startship Troopers such a cinematic masterpiece is that is has explosions, guns, spaceships, monster AND boobs.

Dang good point!
Getting all those elements in one movie is the mark of a master. Not even Kubrick was THAT good!


SST is not perfect. Where's the kung-fu

DK-Prof, Bad news. Even gay cowboys are more manly than a guy in wood shoes.

I don't really want to see gay cowboys, but the movie sounds like classic Ang Lee, which is people feeling trapped by their societal restrictions or circumstances.

Think about his movies, and this is a recurring theme.

I have no doubt it's a well made movie, but boys doing boys? I'll wait till it's on USA and all the gruesome is taken out.

Thanks for sharing, DK but that movie does not appeal to me at all. I will not watch it no matter how many people may recommend it or how many awards it may win.

That was my wife's point - that in some ways it's similar to Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, where there is the "forbidden" love between the princess and the rogue (or pirate, or whatever that wild-haired guy was) and the "forbidden" love between the student and the master. That is the component of the film that I think my wife really enjoyed - the tension and development of the inappropriate relationship over time, and the struggle of the participants with it.

So I guess if you wanted to set a movie about forbidden love in the modern western world (70s and 80s), then you probably have to do something a little more interesting than just an affair, or something like that.


I'm glad that Ang Lee at least went with homosexuality, and not something really creepy like pedophilia.

Your wife told you she went to the movie twice because she liked the theme, and you bought it ?? I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but she's really just going to watch Heath Ledger and Jake Gyllenhall hit the skins...

She said she has trouble dis-associating the guy that played Donnie Darko from his role in that film. I think that's the Gyllenhall guy.

Now THAT's a weird film!
