 A great TV movie about the rise and fall of Boy George and Culture Club.   

A strong and attractive cast bring all the familiar names back to life in this biographical drama.  Douglas Booth who plays George is far too beautiful, but that alone is the reason you forgive that little excess ... after all, we would all choose someone stunning to play us, wouldn't we!  A very interesting and moving drama, very well written and beautifully executed.  A must for all fans of the early 80's as it includes Steve Strange, Marilyn and others.

Christopher And His Kind

A beautiful cast, a beautiful story, hot scenes and tear jerk moments. 
So well crafted that it is easy to become emotionally attached to the characters and their lives.  Shows how freedom and joy was stolen away by the rise of the Nazi’s and the fanatical support they got from the deluded masses.  A fascinating and open memoir by writer Christopher Isherwood becomes a high quality gay movie that is a must watch!   Douglas Booth (Boy George in Worried About The Boy) is even more stunning here!

A bit arty, a bit grimy. Suspenseful, dreamy and brutal.

A clear statement about the hypocracy of the church.  Overall a dark and tragic story.  It suffers from the way it jumps about, creative, I know, but it would have been more effective if the story was linear and more impacting as well.

Is It Just Me?

Mr Gay Average is a writer who shares a home with Mr Gay Hot the go-go boy.
Looking for love is hard when most are looking for sex ... but is it possible?   
Can you find love in the Big Gay City, or will you miss it completely if it walks in the door?

A tightly written, directed and well acted Gay Rom Com that shows the true winners are the ones like us who spend their Saturday nights watching these great movies with their long-term partner and enjoying their quiet life in the suburbs.  The complete opposite to what the world thinks we are like.  Heart warming and amusing, reminds us that we should all be who we are and not pretend to be who we think others want us to be.  What a tangled web we weave when first we practice to deceive!  Don’t jump to conclusions, take a chance!
It made me cry, so it is good!

If you are a famous Soapie hunk who has just been outed, where do you go?
If you are a high profile gay marriage activist who has just been divorced,
where do you go?
How about an intimate gay resort in Palm Springs that promises quiet anonymity?

Well, maybe not!  This delightful gay romantic drama is high on story and dialogue, low on action, but it is still engaging and beautifully acted and executed.  It is easy to fall for all the characters in this movie and want only the very best for them.  Another movie that has a very limited setting that works perfectly for the overall effectiveness of the story.  There is also no lack of appealing male bodies to keep your eyes glued to the screen!

Just Say Love

An interesting and fresh approach to presenting a gay drama/ love story ...

Staying close to the stage presentation style of this play, the movie is set inside a studio with sparse stage sets ... and it work perfectly.  The performances from Matthew Jaeger and Robert Mammana are powerful and moving.  Most impressive is the underlying message and purpose to the story that love is all that matters, and it comes in any number of forms and combinations. Soul mates can reach beyond one lifetime!

The Bible talks about “being all things to all men” which is the perfect mantra for a male hooker!

Life can sometimes remind us of being lost in an apartment block and not able to find the stairs to get out ... you have to get through all the lessons you came here to learn before you can leave.  There are a fascinating variety of characters that the hustler encounters as he journeys through  the apartment building ... some good, some bad, all important to his growth.  This is a different and engaging gay drama.

Lucky Bastard

Don’t believe everything that is written on the cover ...
though the stretched pics should have been a giveaway!

Love fights against lust.  A clear message that drug use destroys people’s lives, and can easily destroy those around them.   Choices are also an important message in this drama.  The very attractive cast help hold attention when things get a little confusing, not the sharpest script but it has a lot to say and can really stir an emotional response in the viewer.

Easier With Practice

A beautiful package does not make up for a lack of engaging content!

This does not make much sense or hold much interest until the twist at the end, in fact, I would not really call it a gay movie.   It was mostly “fast forward” most of the way as even the cast were not that appealing.  Save your money!
