Started in 2007 to keep a track of gay films that I watched, this blog has come much further than I had planned. There are tons of movies that I need to watch and review here. Through this blog, I want to give you genuine, my personal heart-felt review of the films that I see. These are my personal thoughts and opinions about the films and I would love to hear your thoughts on these films as well. I always reply to comments in a day or two. Please help me make my blog more popular by becoming a member, following it and by recommending it to your friends. As far as I know this is one of the very very few gay movie review blogs where reviews are not linked or copy-paste imdb summary. Enjoy and do keep writing your feedback.

First Out

Another collection of short stories. This one I guess promotes upcoming talent and stories of coming out of people. A good collection in which some were definitely good and some weird.

'A Good Son' - A drama which shows chance encounter between 2 teenage young boys at a game that leads to a turning point in one of their lives. The boy realizes what he really is and accepts it.
'Different' - A comedy film where being gay is normal and if you are straight, you are looked down. A different take on how things would be if things were exactly opposite when straight people would fear to come put of closet.
'Is One of You Eddie' - Another great comedy short where stereotypes are challenged as four attractive gay men unfairly judge their neighbor, Eddie, because he doesn't fit the "West Hollywood" mold. Eddie is a masseur and the neighbors realize how good he is when on very hot man goes out of his room completely satisfied.
'Meet Joe Gay' - A charming documentary by a 27-year-old gay man that expresses his attempts to understand why he is single and what it takes to have a successful relationship. A very realistic documentary and I really liked it.
'The Neighborly Thing' - The Neighborly Thing is a chilling tale about a man who has an overzealous
obsession with his upstairs neighbor.

Out of the five, I really liked the one with Eddie and the documentary. The last one was the weirdest. It did not make any sense. Its difficult to rate but I would give it an ok. (5/10)
