    Yeah, I took the showing of the beating to be what really happened, too, with his wife creating a story. I honestly never thought of it as being something that was just going through Ennis' mind. So that is an interesting idea.

    And you know, in a sad (almost twisted - for lack of a better word) way, Ennis was kind of to blame for what happened to Jack. It was sad that he just couldn't accept himself as he was. Because if he would've accepted himself, you know Jack would've been with just him. He never would've gone down to Mexico - I am going to assume that he was down there again (I honestly can't remember whether they said or not). And he never would've been killed. Of course, Jack didn't have to do what he did, but if he could've been with Ennis - which is what you know he wanted - he wouldn't have done anything like that again. I really don't think so.

    That is funny that you say that about Heath Ledger because I remember people complaining about how hard it was to understand what he was saying when the movie was out. I wonder if it would've been easier to understand in a loud movie theater.

    And you know what? I use the subtitles for everything. I was watching the third Lord Of the Rings - this was years ago - and I couldn't understand a word they were saying. I gave in and used the subtitles and I have used them ever since. They are quite convenient sometimes. And I find myself getting mad when a movie doesn't provide them.

    I know it was a short story. I never read it before the movie. So I had no idea how it was going to end. And I remember thinking that I bet it wasn't going to be a happy ending, but I didn't think it would be that unhappy. Also, if they would've just hinted at (or even came right out and said it) what happened to him, OK. I didn't think it was necessary to show it happening to him. I think that didn't help the overall heavy feeling of this film at the end. Know what I mean?

    What did you think of the two of them overall? Did you ever think it would've been something that would've worked out? The opportunity was definitely there at the end.

    I'll discuss Brokeback with you. I thought it was a really depressing movie, too. I swear that when I first saw it (and that wasn't until it was first on DVD), I felt like it was kind of a waste that I watched it ONLY because I thought it was so depressing. So I then made my mother watch it. Why not depress her, too, right? And when I was done I asked her "Do you kind of feel like you just wasted 2 hours and 15 minutes of your life?". She thought so, too. Not because it was a bad movie, but because it was so depressing.

    Yeah, i completely ignored everything you said. Honestly this is a countdown that NEEDS your votes. Other than the host i think i'm the most passionate about Docs in the site!! I get what you said, but could you not at least throw your 25 into random.org? Whether you do that or not, i think... eh
