Hello BJ!  Welcome to the Ultimate Brokeback Mountain Forum!

My name is Chuck (USA/ New Jersey) and I'm one of the moderators who helps run the place.

It's always great to see new members find us and join up!

I can see from your increasing post count that you're searching around the forum!  Good!  I'm going to supply you with a few links that you may find helpful.  You may have already been in a few threads in these sections, but you may find some new topics you want to post in.  If you see that a topic is "old", please don't feel that you shouldn't post.  You never know what conversation would be started because you posted.



In this section you can find threads to compare the movie to the short story (Film Vs. Book), your favorite quote from the movie or book, and general discussion of Brokeback.



In this section you can find threads about reactions of the audience, how the movie affected you, and other topics.



Here you will find threads that talk about various scenes from the movie. 



This is where you'll find threads that talk about Jack, Ennis, their relationship, the women of Brokeback, and other elements.


There are other sections as well where you'll find chat threads (The Diner,  Le Bar Slash) fan fiction discussion, TV, movies, music, and countless other threads.


Oh, and one more thing, BJ.

Now spending my days reading 11 years worth of all of those insightful thoughts and interpretations, adding mine here and there. It would be nice to have somebody to engage in discussion, but i suppose everybody is already past this phase.

Please don't let that stop you from posting your thoughts!   You never know what  conversations could start  because you posted.

If you come to a thread and post, and then you get a message about the thread being "old", as long as the thread is unlocked, you can post there, so please do!!!


Have fun exploring!

Hi Chuck! Thank you very much for your welcoming and the detailed walk around :). I'm finding myself reading all this mass on information and moving on little by little.
This movie IS a masterpiece in all its different aspects!

Hi Chuck, thank you!
I am indeed trying to find my way here. I must confess I have been reading from time to time for months but hesitating to register, I am paranoid that way. But I get sometimes kind of desperate for finding someone to talk about this amazing movie and book. BJ, I totally get you ;)
Took me time to get here, been attacked by this angry BBM virus for years now, but I hope it will get better in company.
Thank you for keeping this up!

Welcome, Gazapete! :)
There were only the two of them on the mountain flying in the euphoric, bitter air, looking down on the hawk's back and the crawling lights of vehicles on the plain below, suspended above ordinary affairs....

It makes you sad....it can make you laugh...it makes you angry...
it makes you ask  "why" ?.....it makes you long for the love what they had....
it takes over your mind....it makes you want to forget it all....but you can't.
It gets deep into your soul and it won't let you go. That's BBM.

Welcome Gazapete to our world. :)

Thank you all guys, I forgot to say where I am from, I come from Spain originally but live in Germany, please be patient if my English sounds strange. My real name is Elena, but I love how many of you assumed Pete as my name, I like it better than my old boring one!

You're English doesn't sound strange to me at all.

I often find  that some of our Euro members will make that comment, and then their English is better than  some Americans I know!  :laughL
