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.

Drink Me (UK)

I was starting to wonder how come my recent stint of gay films have been quite decent and chances were quite high that I would son be watching a real crap movie soon, and behold here it is. This film is an attempt to mix vampire craze with tons of sex, wafer thin story line and expect to do wonders for everyone involved.

James and Andy are a perfect couple, until Andy loses his job suddenly. In order to make their ends meet, James recommends they allow a lodger to stay with them. In comes Sebastian, a loner, good looking, tall, muscular but weird guy. Andy goes through all kinds of dreams every day and begins to wonder that Sebastian is hiding something and is very scared of him. He suspects that Sebastian could be the killer who has been stalking the streets of their neighbourhood and responsible for so many people seemingly disappearing into thin air. James on the other hand doesn’t notice anything. The film ends at a bizarre note something similar to how it started in the first place.

The opening shots in the film really tell you what you’re in for. A bizarre dream sequence followed by a really long sexually charged shower scene between the couple. There is no doubt where this film is headed. with a lot of odd camera angles and equally impressive male nudity, the makers must have their target segment right tin their head. But c’mmon; no one in their gift mindset would wanna watch all these sex scenes with the backdrop of a really weird film which logically makes absolutely no sense whatsoever. Might as well sit at home and watch porn. So many unanswered questions about what are these dreams that Andy keeps getting randomly, why isn’t he just looking for job rather than sitting at home, how does he leave house in shorts and return in jeans (lol), why is a lodger the rational choice for these two? And many more. Most bizarre scene is where James is naked and in a dream sequence is caressing a tree for some reason. I guess the makers wanted to make this film more about atmosphere and mood rather than substance, which is a shame since James and Andy were not bad actors per say and given a chance they could do better; its the director who IMO is just bad.

I dare you to watch this film sitting still in one place and not wanting to blow your head off. It is a bad film on all accounts minus a LOT of sex scenes and nudity. And my rating is only for that. (2.5/10)
