A Gay Sin Confessed

Well, I feel I've been in the blog world just about long enough to "come out" and confess something to all of you. It's a little hard to say this in such a public forum, but it's just something that I feel I need to do. So without further hesitation or explanation, my confession is this: I did not like the movie Moulin Rouge, and I don't think Ewan McGregor's singing voice is anything to write home about.

I mean, I tried to like it. Part of me even wanted to like it. I know it's not OK to dislike it. I was told that and have been reminded ever since. And still, when my friends are talking about how happy it makes them, and they're wanting to share that joy with me, I just can't embrace it, and I am reminded of how different I am, and I feel a little alone.

There. I said it. I feel like a huge burden is lifted off my shoulders.

I am so disappointed in you. I just cannot believe that you would so something like this! You've betrayed us all!

I've got a confession to make too. I really didn't like it also. It wasn't the best, but it wasn't the worst. It was so so...

C'mon! Ewan singing Elton and the music of Nirvana!

This is one of the reasons movies exist.

(the other being Clue)

I have a dark secret too ... I've never even bothered to watch Moulin Rouge.

Yeah, AND they sing Roxanne from the Police! How dare you not like that?!?

I just found your blog. I enjoy your entries!

Hidden said...

Yeah I didn't like it either. *shrug* Guess we're just "different" and we need to be friends.

iwonder said...

Ok, well I forgive you.

Just as long as you don't tell me you don't like Rent or Dreamgirls. If that happens, then I'm never speaking to you again.

Um...maybe I should just refrain from commenting then? *biting lip*

I mean, Dreamgirls wasn't too bad...as a one-timer. And Jennifer Hudson's performance was pretty powerful.

Rent? Well, maybe I'll just keep my opinion to myself on that one. One confession a week is enough... *whistling casually*

Chris, good to see you. I know several "Chris"es, so if I know you, I'm still not sure who you are, but I'm glad you've enjoyed reading.

BeachBoy--I've loved Clue since I was a wee lad. Great flick!

Don't feel bad. I didn't see The Wizard of Oz until my sophomore year in high school and then I thought it was the dumbest movie ever. Apparently that makes me inhuman.
