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.

Men's Mix One (Short Films)

This is a mix collection of gay short films. The primary focus in this series has been th award winning sort flms in various film festivals.

"Blurs" - A young teen boy sees 3 drag queens one day and decided to check out his mom's closet. His parents fearing the worse make him go to wrestling and do other things but when the boy tells about a old man chasing him, the mom puts her foot down and gets a dog instead.
"Touched" - This is set in Philadelphia's gay night life. A sex starved middle aged casting director Mike meets this young handsome man and they come home. We ultimately fid out that young man is homeless because he screwed up his life with drugs and his wife and kid left him. A very touching story when ultimately Mike feels he touched the young man by holding him in his arms.
"10 Pesos" - A weird story of how a 10 peso note travels between different hands.
"Safe Journey" - The Kid has no money, no place to live and nowhere to go. The Man has lost the one he loves. He is losing his eyesight. He's selling all his possessions so nothing will be left to lose. Both are trapped, each alone until Fate brings them together one windy autumn night. A very nice story.
"Gaydar" - This one is hilarious. Everyone in the office is confused about his hot guy's sexual orientation and he keeps the people guessing and he knows it. A guy finds a gaydar machine in yard sale and decided to try it out. After a turn of events, the girl next to stop stops him from doing so because if they find out, one of them will be disappointed and they both want to continue to live in their fantasies.

I loved Touched and Gaydar. Blurs and Safe Journey were ok. 10 pesos was weird. Still watching short films is always fun. (5.5/10)
