I guess I am. Crash was great. I love Don Cheadle.

Maybe the real question should be, are you afraid of being called a homophobe (a homophobe-ophobe) because you dared to like a movie better than tha gay agenda movie, bareback mountain?
16 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Saturday 3/18/06 - 5:59:28 PM EST (GMT-5)
No, my question is a lot better.
16 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Saturday 3/18/06 - 6:00:10 PM EST (GMT-5)
This question doesn't make a lot of sense. Both films were great.

It would make plenty of sense if you weren't a suckah. It's a joke and a shot at the homosexual backlash against 'Crash' winning 'Best Picture'. Many gays are saying that Hollywood and the Academy are homophobic and that's the only reason they didn't give it to 'Brokeback'.

16 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Saturday 3/18/06 - 6:04:27 PM EST (GMT-5)
I find that rather funny. You can't get more liberal than Hollywood, yet people still feel the need to call it prejudice.
16 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Saturday 3/18/06 - 6:11:26 PM EST (GMT-5)
No, I am not a homophobe or a homophobe-ophobe.
16 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Saturday 3/18/06 - 6:22:31 PM EST (GMT-5)
Heh, I thought Brokeback Mountain was better than Crash, but I think it's silly to say that the reason Brokeback didn't win Best Picture was because of homophobia, especially because Brokeback actually won as many Oscars than Crash (3 each), even if it didn't win Best Picture.
16 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Saturday 3/18/06 - 6:25:59 PM EST (GMT-5)
I'm far from being a homophobe, but I did like Crash better.

Sorry for being a suckah. I didn't pay attention to the awards and all that stuff. Oh well. Seems a bit of a stupid reason to backlash.

16 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Saturday 3/18/06 - 7:12:45 PM EST (GMT-5)
No. I love teh gays.
16 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Saturday 3/18/06 - 7:16:08 PM EST (GMT-5)
I haven't seen either, but I am the furthest thing from a homophobe!
16 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Saturday 3/18/06 - 7:26:48 PM EST (GMT-5)
If they thought 'Brokeback' was better than 'Crash' would that make them racist?
I liked Transamerica the best.
16 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Saturday 3/18/06 - 10:40:15 PM EST (GMT-5)
I havn't seen either, but I want to.

uh- wait, what?
a) The Gay Agenda?! What are you on?!
b) This is the stupidiest question ever. Who approved this?!
I'm all about the gay people, but I liked Crash. I didn't see either all the way through, though. That's how AWESOME movies are.
16 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Sunday 3/19/06 - 12:09:41 AM EST (GMT-5)
c)Shut the f*ck up.
16 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Sunday 3/19/06 - 12:10:13 AM EST (GMT-5)
I never saw Crash; it looked stupid.
BB Mountain was good, but I wasn't surprised it didn't win Picture of the Year.
16 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Sunday 3/19/06 - 12:39:59 PM EST (GMT-5)
Haha, I must be a bisexual homophobe, apparently.

On a serious note, though, I preferred Crash over Brokeback. I could more easily relate to it.

God. I don't even know what to say.
Something that moronic barely even warrants comment.

The movie Crash was a lot of things (though I don't know how you'd judge the film without having seen it), but "stupid" wasn't one of them.

16 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Sunday 3/19/06 - 12:59:17 PM EST (GMT-5)
Oh jesus god. I'm NOT a homophobe but Crash WAS a better movie and deserved that Award.
The people who made Brokeback Mountain would be ashamed of this question, you know. This is exactly what they DIDN'T want. I mean a gay movie gets accepted into the Oscars and all it does is give a negative after effect? Christ.

Anne Proulx wouldn't.
If you look in Generals, there is a thread about how offended she was that BrokeBack wasn't "Best Picture."

I really don't understand why she was so crushed by it, though. It's not as though Brokeback was completely ignored. It was nominated for several other awards.

16 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Sunday 3/19/06 - 1:05:50 PM EST (GMT-5)
I believe it WON at least one award, whoever that woman is (not familiar with her-don't care), she needs to accept the fact that she didn't make the best movie of the year, and just because something is semi contraversial doesn't mean everyone has to pay attention to it just because of that. When you honestly compare the two movies and put aside the fact that either of them are contraversial... Crash still wins. And it's over, everyone needs to get over it.

Um?

Anne Proulx is the author of the short story that the movie Brokeback Mountain was based on.

I'm surprised at how many people in here lack a sense of humor or just willfully misunderstand this question.
16 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Sunday 3/19/06 - 5:42:14 PM EST (GMT-5)
^Ann Proulx just wrote it... didn't direct/produce/cast it. Sooooo it doesn't really matter who she is. The fact is, she didn't write the best story in Hollywood, this year, or any year. So she can shove it.

& .. Oh, I understand this question plenty. I just think it's stupid to even ask. I mean, there are too many people who take that movie so seriously who really DO think if you didn't think it was the best you're just a homophobe. That's why I'm not laughing, it's just not a funny topic, it's old.

Without her, there would have been no director/producer/casting, because there would have been no movie at all.

Who? If someone were to acknowledge the excellent quality of that film, yet still believe it wasn't "the best", I highly doubt they'd be seen as homophobic by anyone.
