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.

Boys On Film 3: American Boy

Area X
The boy's father unexpectedly picks up his son, sets him up with a hooker with 200 dollars but he is gay and so he runs away. These are just a few of the bizarre events that Paul recounts to Marco, a seductive hustler he meets in a dicey bar on a hidden street underneath New York City's infamous Port Authority Bus Terminal, also known as 'Area X'. Its too late when he realizes that the hustler actually look all his money.

The Young and Evil
Film follows the zero-to-60 path of Karel, a young African-American who is determined to seduce an older man, an HIV prevention advocate, into giving him the virus. The oft-taboo issues of having gay sex but not using protection are amplified by taking place in the African-American community. A bizarre film for me.

It's about this gay high school kid who's attracted to a new kid in the school. The new kid is tall, smokes and is in good shape. The new kid invites him to his house (in the middle of nowhere) one night and thinks just turn dark and ugly. This one was weird for me.

Astoria, Queens
I loved this short film. It was saucy and fun. 4 Kansas City twentysomething misfits navigate their new lives in the Emerald City of New York. Newly single Thom, our Dorothy, discovers NYC in a second 'coming out party'. Jimboy, the brainless Scarecrow, wants to become the first gay white rap superstar. Anisha, the workaholic Tinman, searches for a heart and Callie, a whiskey drinking Cowardly Lion, lacks the courage to make it as an actress. Beautiful.

Overall rating is again based on the mix of short stories. (5/10)
