Logo's NewNowNext webpage had posted an article concerning this film titled "Did You Catch That Iconic 'Brokeback Mountain' Location in 'Let Him Go'?" Link HERE. They write:

Let It Go is based on a novel by Larry McMurtry Watkins, who is based in Bismarck, North Dakota.

Brokeback and Let Him Go were filmed in the town of Fort Macleod, in Alberta, Canada, so it shouldn’t be a real surprise that the same locations show up in both films. The town is also the home of other productions like Interstellar and the upcoming new Ghostbusters film.


This didn't occur to me:

Let Him Go is directed by Thomas Bezucha, the out filmmaker who also gave us The Family Stone, and the 1999 gay fave Big Eden. Could the use of Ennis and Alma’s apartment be a nod to Brokeback fans — or just a coincidence of Canadian filmmaking? Guess we’ll have to ask Bezucha for confirmation, but in the meantime, we like imagining the Brokeback and Let Him Go cowboys living in the same western town.

With one of my favorite actors - Costner.  Been following his career since "American Flyers" and yeah, I watch "Yellowstone"  ;)

I watched Django Unchained and Nightcrawler this weekend. Nightcrawler I've seen once before, but I always find NEW things on the 2nd viewing of any film. Django.......I don't know, an odd film from Quentin Tarantino, he's IN the film too! Didn't know that before...... ;D

I watched "Now, Voyager" over the weekend. I had seen part of it a long time ago, but I have never really cared for Bette Davis, so really avoided most of her movies. Anyway, I watched the whole movie and really liked it. I loved the transformation of Charlotte and how she finally stood up to her mother. I did not like how the movie ended though. But I am a happy ending kind of person.

I watched Ocean's 8 this weekend, and figured that would be an entertaining time. Lots of famous women leads, story about royal bling, costumes and locations...

But no! It's seriously one of the most Trumpian films I've ever seen. I'm utterly surprised they didn't offer Ivanka a role - maybe they did...  All the leads in the film are grifters and crooks and several truly look like painted plastic. The story centers around the Met Gala, one of those big empty celebrity balls, where a jewelry heist goes down. The moral of the thing was that you should con and grift and thieve your way without qualms, and you will become rich and beautiful and feel empowered, with the ability to spend on wasteful luxury - you know, like gold toilets and the like. You should be proud of your thievery and there won't be negative consequences for your evil. Get that money, girl. 

I HATED it! The only thing that made it worth watching was Cate Blanchett, because she looked so, so hot.

I think it was supposed to be funny, exciting and sharp. It was just annoyance-inducing and empty.

I do agree with you. For some reason, a lot of these movies that are female centric, seem to believe that all the women are supposed to act like the men do in those same kinds of films. I've seen that. I personally don't want women acting like men do in most of those films.

By the way, what happened to subtlety. Even some charm or grace. Your take on this was spot on.

I love the last line of the movie, it seems optimistic enough...

"Oh, Jerry, don't let's ask for the moon. We have the stars."

...and then the gorgeous score by Max Steiner.

I watched Identity Thief yesterday. I couldn't remember if I'd ever watched it before. Anyway, I like Jason Bateman, so that's all I cared about.........it was mindless entertainment!  ;D :P :laugh:

That's really a wonderful line.

Yes, I was surprised I really liked the movie. I really dislike Bette Davis that much.  When people find this out they act like I should be tarred and feathered. But everyone has their favorites and and their dislikes and a few intense dislikes.
