He probably will if it looks interesting and/or he hears good things about it, not if not. If you're interested in his take on watching R-rated movies, it's here.

Doesn't seem to me the kind of film he'd be interested in seeing, regardless of the rating.

And he doesn't seem to watch movies just so that he can review them. If he doesn't want to watch it, he just doesn't.

Why wouldn't be interested in seeing it? Because it about gay people? The dude writes about gay people. He's really not a bigot, in spite of what you probably think.

I doubt any of us think that Card is a bigot. Or "biggit" as it is amusingly spelled sometimes.

I've got the impression (feel free to correct me) that Card believes that homosexual behavior is probably wrong. I also have the impression (from the media coverage and the trailer) that homosexuality is the main focus in Brokeback Mountain. Mph expresses the same observation that I have, that Card doesn't watch movies just to review. He seems to watch movies that he is interested in, that are within his (rather large) comfort zone, but he doesn't seem to watch "artsy" or "edgy" movies or ones that essentially center around things which are directly opposite to what he believes. For example, I don't believe that he watched Kinsey, either.

Then again, maybe I'm projecting. And maybe I'm right. Take it for what it's worth.

I, for one, appreciate that he doesn't.

Meh. Ratings reflect the times, most of what is R today would have been unthinkable in an earlier era (if produced for mass consuption, take Salvador dali's film, they can turn the stomach today, and they are rather old) Choosing to see a move based only on the rating is a foolish idea.

Card always suprises me with which movies he'll see and which ones he won't. I was suprised when I read his review of The Good Girl, simply because I didn't think it was his type of movie (the subject matter being adultery). So I won't even try and guess. However, Card has made it clear that an "R" rating is not a factor when deciding to see a movie.

He has reviewed quite a few rated R movies.
