The Boys in the Boat, George Clooney's new film

It sounds so gay.

It sounds like a sequel to The Boys in the Band

Please for the love of God please stop with the 1936 Olympics. Out of all the terrible things Hitler did, staging the 1936 Olympics is pretty far down on the totem pole.

I wonder if it will have loving shots of bare butts. That movie he directed with Sam Rockwell as Chuck Barris is practically a homage to Rockwell's ass.

I could have been a coxswain. I was 110 lbs while at the UW.

Is this about a Gay Cruise?

It sure looks, um, bright. I needed shades to watch the trailer.

Based on a great book

What makes the book so great, R11?

Not one whiff of gayness and not one glimpse of ass. But a pretty good movie all in all, telling a true tale I was not familiar with.

But a bit sun-dappled and hazy in that Robert Redford/A River Runs Through It memory-piece way.

Clooney is a hack and prone to treacle.

Didn't he already do the gay boat movie when he made The Perfect Storm?

One can never make enough young men in boats movies.

Who keeps giving this guy money to fund these boring movies? They always flop.

He is so boring.

When were you at the U r8?

R18, I was there '87 to '91.

This movie is so formulaic. Still, it would've been good if it had half as much dong as Saltburn.

by Anonymousreply 22December 26, 2023 10:54 PM

I'd watch if it will have naked shower scenes full of fondling and molestation.

Yes, Gym, we know

Hey guys... if you want to learn more about the rowers, the documentary, The Boys of '36, from American Experience on PBS is on this evening, 07/09/24 at 9pn ET.

If you only know the movie, haven't read the book, this is an excellent piece of storytelling.

I saw it on a flight. It was a good movie with a lot of eye candy.
