What was I thinking?
I admit it, I was curious and wanted to see what all the fuss was about. So, I gave in and netflixed Brokeback Mountain. I knew better, but curiosity got the better of me.
It was definitely everything I knew it would be: immoral, unethical, unGodly, borderline pornography, sacrilegious, depicted domestic violence, adultery and divorce, etc., etc., etc...
But, even knowing all that you know what the worst part of it was? It was a bad movie! It was just horrible. What were the critics thinking? The story was slow. The movie was lllllooooonnnnggggg! I didn't think it was ever going to end! There wasn't any character development. How in the world did this movie win Best Picture?
I'll tell you how...to have voted against it would have violated everything that liberal Hollywood holds dear! This movie, according to immoral and unGodly people, broke new ground in showing a gay love story. To not support this "groundbreaking" movie would have violated their beliefs. This movie had to have their full a priori support, because if it didn't do well there wouldn't be another one like it made any time in the near future.
This movie was just plain bad! I thought that maybe I could see a good movie even if I found it morally reprehensible. But, I should've known better.
Well...Lord, yet another lesson learned.
Thanks Be to God and Boomer Sooner!
