I think it was a little over a year ago I was at my nephew D's birthday party(It was held at my sister M's house). My mom, dad, my oldest sister C, my other sister M, my sister M's boyfriend(now fiance), my other sister's husband(that she's separated from), my nephew T(who's 7), my other Nephew D and his girlfriend were all there.
So we were all sitting around and my nephew D was looking for a movie to watch when he made a joke about Brokeback Mountain. I think he said something along the lines of "Awww...you don't have Brokeback mountain?" he said it in a really sarcastic/joking tone of voice and then laughed(he was a 16 year old boy, what else do you expect?). My sister M said "Nope I havn't seen that one" and then unexpectedly my other sister's husband said "It's actually a really good movie"...........I was like huh???? HE watched a gay movie and liked it??? wowza. Not that he's like a homophobe or anything. I actually have no idea what his views are on gay people so I was just surprised.
I knew that he and my sister have had the DVD of Brokeback Mountain for a few years now but they get all sorts of DVDs really cheap from a friend. I remember when I was at there house a few years ago and me and my nephew D were looking through the DVDs and I saw BM and I was like "why do they have Brokeback Mountain?" and he was just like I don't know and laughed.........We used to joke around about it. I was always curious though, as to whether or not they actual watched it. I guess I got my answer, although I don't know if my sister C watched it or not. Hmmm....
Actually when Brokeback Mountain first came out on DVD my parents rented it. I remember being SO surprised that my dad rented it and I was actually happy cause I really wanted to see it. We started to watch it but then once it got to the sex scene he turned it off and wouldn't watch the rest. He was all "Why do they have to do that? They don't need to show that" So needless to say I never had the oppourtunity to watch it that weekend.
I did eventually get to watch it just over a year ago when they played it on The Movie Network on TV. I though it was pretty good but I didn't like it as much as everyone else, maybe someday I'll explain. Right now though, I'm off to read some journals:D
