When last we left our saga, Steve from Akron was eagerly anticipating a complimentary DVD of Ang Lee's Brokeback Mountain.....

Hi Neal, Well I want to thank you for the chance to see the Movie Brokeback Mountain. My wife and I just could not get passed the kissing scene. The first encounter in the tent was bad enough, at least it was in the dark. The mountain country was great. I thought it seemed to start slow but that did not bother me as much as the above. My wife would have watched more but she could not stand me making my comments. She will finish it when I am not around. I am sorry about it but it is just not my type of movie.

Now the good part I did love the Worlds Fastest Indian. I am going again with my son Thanks for letting me know that it was playing in Montrose when it comes out on DVD I will get it. Thanks Steve.

I’m really glad you took the time to watch the film and write back. I agree that it’s not for everyone, but at least you were open to the idea of watching it. People have their perceptions and limitations, but that becomes much worse when there’s a refusal to check out the other side.

Glad you liked Indian, too.

Take care,

    Hey now - at least Stevo gave the thing a shot, which is more than we can say for many. One small step for man.

    Dear Steve,

    I hope you enjoy United 93 this weekend. Watching a lot of innocent people die will surely be more palatable than two men kissing. Or maybe you'll just pop in that worn-out DVD of Con Air for another watch.

    Yours eternally,
