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.

Dirty Magazines (USA)
In the '80s, a mother-son relationship takes a wild left turn after she discovers adult material under her son's bed the morning of his 16th birthday. It is hilarious take on the extent that she would go to first make sure that his son is not gay. This includes even hiring a male prostitute so that nothing could happen. Over the top acting but quite a funny short film.

Fikon (Sweden) [Figs]
'He loved the sperm, especially my sperm, which he said tasted like sugar from all the soda I was drinking daily.' Memories of a brief, passionate affair. In all simplicity strongly portrayed debut with text and images engaging in a riveting battle. A very short film but visual brilliant. You feel like you have just entered the lives of this gay couple and have just witnessed what a beautiful memory they share.

This short addresses the homophobia in football when the coach calls out all sort of faggot jokes to one of the players not realising that the player knows very well that the coach is gay.

Sun, sand, sea, music; everything sounds perfect until Felipe goes for a random fling with an older lady. And this is when reality hits Lucas. He has feelings for his best friend. He may look chill and happy but his heart yearns of this best friend. Lucas is brilliant and so is Felipe. The pain of that first crush and love that you can’t get is so real.

Fuckbuddies (Spain)
2 straight guys are in middle of nowhere in the car. They are trying to have sex but it starts getting uncomfortable in the car. They start talking about their wives and girlfriends while attempting to do it. It just ends up with the two guys sitting in the car, totally nude and just talking like str8 guys. It was pretty cool.

A musical number with a nude man standing in middle of jungle almost naked and different interacting with him. Really weird !!

Swimsuit (USA)
