Just A Guy Thing?

Is it a drama? Check.
Is it action/adventure? Check.
Is it a romance? Check.
Is it a historical docu-drama (with creative license) ? Check.
Is it the greatest movie ever made? IMHO, Check.
Is it my favorite movie ever? Check.

Braveheart was released in the spring of 1995 on this very weekend. It went on to win Best Picture. It was a rather tumultuous period in my life. And yet, somehow, the all-encompassing spell of this movie drove me to pay three times to watch it in the theatres. I've rarely if ever paid to see a movie twice. I'm watching it right now... and am spellbound as always.

I know the blood & guts battle scenes are the first to come to mind when thinking of Braveheart, but there is so, so much more. From the avenging of one woman's death - to the war to free a nation. From blood-lust, to revenge, to eternal, undying love. From simple, dirt farming roots to altruistic patriotic oaths. No movie has ever cast such a wide net and reaped such bountiful rewards.

I'm curious to know your thoughts on my favorite movie. Feel free to disagree with me. My feelings won't be hurt. Besides, if you don't like it, you're just silly anyway!

Ah, Its you again, Your Angel Feathers and your Blood Stains...

Good movie choice, one that I really enjoyed, but haven't seen in forever. I do remember Mel Gibson being so powerful in that role, and I remember crying, so it must have been very moving. I wish I had more to share, but my recollection of the movie is fuzzy. Besides, I really just popped in to say nice ass

Memory is a bit fuzzy, eh? How old did you say you were???

One of those movies I could watch 4-5 times a year and see something I didn't see in it the time before. I could do without some of the more violent scenes, and more of the beautiful love story.

ps glad you're back I was have Doc withdrawal.

docdirk replies on 5/29/2006 5:58 pm:
Every time I see it, I want to skip over the ending. Very painful to watch. I love how he continued to be driven by the memory of his wife, avenging her death by defeating an entire nation!

Doc withdrawals? Maybe I should prescribe something for you?

Good choice, Doc! I loved it. I think I like the rawness of it all. The hard life, the hurt a man feels for his family, the struggle for freedom ... in short: NOBODY FUCKS WITH MEL! They cut his balls off (ouch!) but NOBODY FUCKS WITH MEL!

docdirk replies on 5/30/2006 5:30 pm:
Oh yeah, the ending was tough to deal with!!!

But Mel was Mr Bad Ass - no doubt!!

So, you're a biter, eh? Well, if you feel a good biting is what I need, who am I to say no?

Glad to hear it! I was blown away from the first moment the first time I saw it. It's almost too much to take if viewed often, so I try to space out my viewings. No matter how long I wait, however, it never loses it's ability to touch me.

Thanks for stopping in. Help yourself to the free coffee in the lobby!

I love that all of you ladies agree about the flick. I still run across people who have never seen it that think it's nothing more than Lethal Weapon in kilts!!! (Although I like LW too!)

Thanks for stopping in, saying hi, and most of all - agreeing with me!

I never watched it all the way through! I rented it once years and years ago... before DVDs... and watched only the first VHS tape. It ended with some guy getting stabbed in the face and there was lots of blood and I didn't bother to watch the other tape. Never to this day have I made an attempt to watch it again. I know... I know... its great and epic and has Mel... but I still won't watch it.
