  • Strapped For Danger
    by noreply@blogger.com (Unknown) on July 14, 2019 at 11:10

    I can't believe the amount of good reviews this film has received online. I understand that this is a camp film, wanna be comedy laced with over the top acting but there should be something to keep a viewer's attention. I caught myself rolling my […]

  • A Queer Story (Cantonese)
    by noreply@blogger.com (Unknown) on July 6, 2019 at 13:49

    This film was surprisingly a very pleasant watch. I wasn't sure what to expect. Even though at time the film felt a bit stretched, but wonderful performances by its two lead actors made sure as an audience you are never bored. The story is a little […]

  • A Star Is Born (2018 version, but somehow this review very quickly turned into my love of the 1937 version instead)
    by Ali Naro on May 20, 2019 at 17:30

    Starring – Lady Gaga, Bradley Cooper, Sam Elliott and some other people, I guess, who cares really, because those other people weren’t Janet Gaynor nor Fredric March, and if Janet Gaynor and Fredric March aren’t starring in A Star […]

  • New Sauvage Trailer – The gay prostitute movie that divided Cannes is coming soon
    by Tim Isaac on January 28, 2019 at 22:16

    I’m always a bit dubious about reports that a film prompted walkouts, as it can’t help but sound like a marketing ploy. However, there were apparently quite a few people who didn’t get through to the end of the screenings of Sauvage at Cannes, due to its graphic approach to its story. However, many of […] New Sauvage Trailer – The gay prostitute movie that divided Cannes is coming soon from Big Gay Picture Show […]

  • thoughts on The Mummy (now on HBOgo)
    by noreply@blogger.com (jeffreygmm) on July 11, 2019 at 22:19

    We're not even three minutes into The Mummy and Gus Kenworthy's boyfriend (who's really good in Gayby) is pretending to be a British reporter! The fat guy from gladiator who threw a phone at a receptionist and ruined the Les Mis movie is wearing a wig and introduces "the mummy" by saying she's "beautiful and cunning" - accordingly, this movie posits that all women are evil.  It's been […]

  • Look on my works, ye mighty, and despair...
    by noreply@blogger.com (jeffreygmm) on July 11, 2019 at 22:11

    "You want me to do what?" - Susie Garret, probably. I've talked at length about the power Punky Brewster had in teaching me how to navigate beyond my caste in society, but I completely neglected to mention the time the Punky Brewster writers got ravaged on hallucinogens at Burning Man and wrote the most horrific hour of television ever made - THE PERILS OF PUNKY. "The Perils of Punky" […]

  • dick on the brain
    by noreply@blogger.com (jeffreygmm) on July 11, 2019 at 22:10

    Admittedly, I have a type.  Whatever.  I'm human.  That said, feel free to skip this post because I cannot be trusted when it comes to Brain Damage. Horror nerds love Frank Henenlotter's Basket Case, but Brain Damage is better.  It's better because the male lead in this film is, to quote Claire Danes, so beautiful it hurts to look at him.  That's enough for me. Brain Damage is a mov […]

  • i only make passes at guys who wear glasses
    by noreply@blogger.com (jeffreygmm) on July 11, 2019 at 21:54

    Once upon a time, I talked about prolific queer filmmaker David DeCoteau and his particular brand of direct to DVD horror movies in the aughts.  David appears to be a sweet man in real life and one can't help but respect how specific his work is (i.e. hundreds of films that feature shirtless straight boys right off the bus from Iowa willing to do anything on camera for their big break even if […]

  • i miss her every day
    by noreply@blogger.com (jeffreygmm) on July 11, 2019 at 21:46

    It's not Friday.  It's Thursday.  As if that weren't enough a blow to my well-being, I have a summer cold and I can't work out and I also seem to have hit an age wall where I'm gaining, on average, about a pound a day.  This is a dark time.  Then I remembered Ma (2019). Ma is a movie where a lady invites a bunch of kids to her basement and makes them totino's pizza rolls and let's them […]
