Hello mardu!  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.

Have fun exploring!

Hello everybody!  I'm from Poland. I'm Jake Gyllenhaal's fan, liking all his movies with Brokeback Mountain on a first place.

Hi Mardu - we've met before on the 'Prisoners' thread  :)

My name is Sonja, I'm from The Netherlands. It's great to see you here! Another Jake fan! Oooeee!
Enjoy the forum!  :)

Hello all. My name's Sara and I'm from Canada. I just watched Brokeback Mountain for the first time tonight and I loved it! I am not estranged to the gay community, being that I have many gay friends. I actually already have Jack and Ennis kissing by the stairs of Ennis' place as the screen saver to my cell phone. Great movie with one big nitpick, which I guess I will get to write about in one of the boards. I can't wait to chat about BM, I'm a big writer.  ;)
Love each other despite our imperfections.

Thank you for the welcomes everyone! And don't worry Sara, we share a very popular name. Though for both of us having no H at the end is a wee bit more scarce. Just don't tell me you're left handed because that would be too weird. lol :D

No, not left handed! And I'm pronounced like Sarah, not Sah-ra. But I am half Canadian, though I tend to forget about it, as my mother came to live in England when she was 10.

Hello, just wanted to let everyone know that the 5K walk I participated in this past Sunday to raise money for the ALS Society was a success. Thanks to Forum members for their support! I was able to raise over $7000, and with my other team members we were able to raise collectively over $10,000. Here’s a photo of me during the walk. As I was feeling quite weak that morning, I completed the walk in a wheelchair, and was pushed by family members who were walking with me.

hey mark, congratulations.  maybe its time to speak to the als society or your hospice people about getting a power chair to buzz around in.  i know that my aunt who had als was exceedingly well cared for, and every need was anticipated.  they were a great help for her family as well.  i don't pray in the classic sense, but know that i wing supportive thoughts your way.  if you get a visit to hawaii on your bucket list, i'll be right here.
