Brokeback Mountain

Went to see Brokeback Mountain last night, even though I had reservations about going to see it; in my experience films that get the sort of hype that this has had are usually not worth watching. I have to admit that it is a good story from a good writer, but that is about as far as it goes really. The film is distinctly mediocre, and leaves one feeling that there is something missing, and at two hours fourteen minutes I think that it is about forty five minutes too long; ninety minutes would have been more than enough for the content of the film. The acting, well the best thing that could be said is that it was below average with one struggling to understand what was being said at times, with the best actors being the animals! Best thing about the film - the stunning scenery of the mountain itself. I definitely think that this is a case where the directors name is what has sold the film, but what people seem to forget is that even a good director can produce a donkey from time to time, and this is certainly a donkey, plodding and stubbornly refusing to go anywhere.

On a completely differen note; RESULT! Jodie has gone...
