MC FILM Still Rents Out Movies
We are pleased with the Oscars giving reverend thanks to the classic gay award nominee “Brokeback Mountain” up for the Oscars in 2005 by director Ang Lee. NBC anchors had a “Best Romantic Movie” episode and Brokeback Mountain was brought up a couple of times.This year Ang Lee’s spectacular film ” Life of Pi” won a number of Academy Awards.
Since 1989 we have had a large collection to share with the Tampa Bay community. MC FILM has most of the Academy Award Films on DVD along with 8600 great classic, foreign and GLBT movie titles For Sale & For Rent!.A lot of the GLBT DVD’s come from the directors themselves from film festivals and have little known community awareness or circulation but are great films to see and enjoy.

You Just Can Not Make This Up- Continued From Last Week
Part Two – The trip to Moscow
At this time The Ukraine had just separated from Russia. Both countries were in a changing mode and 3rd world acting. We were taking the train from Kiev, Ukraine to Moscow, Russia. Arriving at the train station after dark, it was very surreal. There was only one light bulb in each of the big waiting rooms. 100’s of people all wearing dark clothing, walking around everywhere and nobody was talking. Our security guides ushered us into the 1st class car section. It was anything but 1st class; but compared to the other cars it was very over the top. The front cars had wood benches for passengers to sit on for the 10 hour train ride. We asked our guide how much it would be to buy and extra cabin to party in. They were very surprised and said it would cost at least 4 one way tickets. OK how much we asked? He answered $20 total. We smiled and said YES.
After the train started to move a couple guys in our group went to purchase drinks. The guide insisted on going with them They returned with 24 quarts of beer and 2 bottles of vodka. Originally they paid $8 for everything then our guide & security guide stepped in and they paid the local price of $3. Thank goodness none of us got too cocktailed that night. Around 2 AM the train came to a stop in the middle of a field. Armed, stern looking, Russian soldiers came on board the train to check our paperwork & passports. It was so surreal; like a scene from an old war time movie and we were secret agents with the needed papers!. People were being tossed off the train while others were trying to sneak onboard. After we passed the check point we were told to lock ourselves into the cabin just in case they have stowaways on board. The next morning the young Russian man we had met the night before stopped by our cabin to drink cognac with us. Hello Moscow here we come… Next Week part 3: Red Square
