One of the last to see.....

Ok, so I'm one of the last people to see B-back Mountain. I didn't go see it in a theater. I waited for it to come out on DVD. I did buy it when it first came out, but didn't start watching it until Saturday night.

It was late when I started watching, so I shut it off half way through. I finished it tonight.

I read the story a year ago. And I'm sure this comment will put me in jeopardy of losing my gay card, but I didn't think it was that great of a story. I found the dialog, difficult to read and the story seemed to drag in several spots. It was ok, but....

Then I heard all the gossip about the movie. Jake Gyllenhaal and Heath Ledger didn't impress me as good choices for Jack and Ennis. I have to admit, they did do a good job in the parts. However, I have the same comments about the movie, that I had about the story. The movie does follow the story fairly well, but I had difficulty following the dialog and thought it drug it spots.

I don't know, maybe if I watch it a few more times, it will grow on me.
