3:10 TO YUMA COULD BE A GAY LOVE STORY

yumacut2
3:10 to Yuma was way better than we expected – especially for a western. It’s an entertaining movie and -guess what – there’s a whole GAY way to interpret it. This was pointed out to us by Norman Korpi, and we must have been blind not to notice.( If you haven’t seen the movie, read no further lest we spoil it for you.) Russell Crowe plays the notorious outlaw gang leader Ben Wade who robs stagecoaches. His bloodthirsty right hand man Charlie, played by Ben Foster, (a curly haired slim guy who always wears a tight little stylish jacket and chaps) will kill ANYBODY and do ANYTHING for his boss. According to Norman, they’re a couple, and Charlie is hopelessly in love with Ben. Enter poor but idealistic rancher Dan, played by Christian Bale, and you have a love triangle. Gradually Ben Wade falls for rancher Dan and he ends up killing Charlie. We MUST see the movie again to catch all the gay clues, As Norman gleefully sums it up “Yuma is gayer than Brokeback Mountain.”

    Let people analyze the film the way they want. Not everyone is looking for subtexts. Just because an orange is a fruit, doesn’t mean it’s gay.

    Director James Mangold has mangled every film he’s directed.

    Christian Bale is outstanding in this movie.
    Its a remake, you people need to get over yourselves. It’s a good old fashioned, shoot ’em up western. Peter fonda is also in it. Enjoy it! Its magnificent.

    Then Chester must have been Matt Dillions lover, if this idiot Norman Korpi is reading ‘gay’ into the storyline. There are no men kissing, no brokeback mountain stuff happening.

    I saw the movie it’s very good,,,,even if Christian Bale go’s to burningman in a mask,,he’s a good actor for a santanic cult festival goer.

    Norman is correct,,this movie has a man love triangle undercurrent running thru it. Charlie is in obsessive love with Ben Wade,,,Ben Wade seduces men and women and feels the need to seduce christian bale the rancher,,,He likes a challenge.

    Gay men will understandably always look for gay ‘clues’ in everything because it makes them feel secure and validated, although they won’t admit that’s why they’re doing it. Gay men could find a gay message in Jane Eyre if they wanted to.

    Ben Foster, the actor who played Charlie Prince (the one in love apparently) actually confirmed that his character did what he did purely out of love. There was strong sexuality that they wanted to deal with with the character.

    What I don’t understand is why so many people are having a cow (hur hur hur. Get it?) over someone pointing out (OBVIOUS) homoeroticism in a movie. It’s everywhere, kids, time to get used to it.
    (Ben Wade/Charlie Prince OTP!)

    Awesome website you have here but I was curious if you knew of any community
    forums that cover the same topics talked
    about here? I’d really like to be a part of online community where I can get feedback from other knowledgeable individuals that share the same interest. If you have any suggestions, please let me know. Bless you!

    I agree w/ Patrick on this.

    It’s only gays and lesbos who will think this and try to put everything in their rainbow picture frame.
