Watch Trailer

I saw this film the other night.  There are 11 Academy nominations.  Directed by the Asian guy, Ang Lee, who also directed BrokeBackMountain.  A beautiful film,
moving, engrossing, provacative thinking during and after. . .for me, anyway. Watching the trailer this morning brought tears to my eyes. . .must be cuz it's Wednesday. . .;-)  Treat yourself. . . . . .justin

The last movie I saw in the theater that I liked was "Skyfall".
And since I let myself be dragged to Zero dark thirty, I've fulfilled my cinema-going obligations for this calendar year.

All the good movies are on Turner Classic.

Just because ZeroDark 30 was violent trash. . . don't be jaded by it. . .so you wasted good money.
I did too and I was dragged there. Plus extra dose to begin: the 7 previews of "coming attractions" were more of the same. ..trash and violence glorified.

I don't know why I do that...allow myself to be dragged there. . takes a a week to get clean again after the filth!

Life of PI helped me "Be cleaned!"

COOPSTA: It just struck me. . from out of your comments, I am now wondering. . I cannot verify this in any way. . .but. .

ARE YOU and I the only ones on here who are about the same age?

Are there any other college-age guys, grad-school age who read/post on this blog?

I suddenly got the feeling it's all an "older crowd". . . . .{crowd, for lack of a better word}

Y'ever feel lonely when you come here?

"ARE YOU and I the only ones on here who are about the same age?"

Oh shit! I've been "outed"

I've been wondering this too Justin, wondering when you'd consider your audience demographic... but wondering if there were others who communcated directly with you.

How can you change your demographic?
Do you wish to be reaching younger people?
I assume so.
How can you achieve this?
Is this a subject for you...a subject that you need to raise with young as well as older gay people?

The bit that concerns me is your comment about feeling lonely here.... I can understand it, but thought that you would have already realised and faced that decision?

Interesting, I'll watch this space.

I watched an interview with the director of this movie and he said it was all about a journey of self discovery and awareness.

That's what life is all about, folks. And that's why we oldies have the edge hehe.

Ipse dixit. . .behold, he has spoken. . . hahahaaa

Thanks for sharing your life- experiences. ;-)

'For Greater Glory' with Andy Garcia.

About the Mexican battle for freedom of religion. This movie will stick in your mind for days... guaranteed!

I am looking forward to the DVD of this movie. My home theater system was built specially for this movie.

As for your demographic, I thought it was an ageless zone here. There ain't no pervin goin on. And don't we all continue to learn, even as we age.

Gary's right, life is about self discovery and awareness. If you think learning stops at university, buckle up, it's gonna be a long ride.
