Portrait of Michael J. Deibert, owner of Queer Film Reviews

Hi, I’m Michael!

I have amassed a massive collection of queer and gay-themed films, shorts, series, and more. I’m here to let you know which ones are worth watching – and which ones aren’t!

This site is about Queer, LGBTQ, and Gay-Themed cinema.

My goal is to work through my massive collection of films, shorts, series and other relevant cinematic media and review them for you. Unlike other Queer or LGBT film review sites that currently exist, my reviews will not just regurgitate each film’s IMDB info. Nor will not find any streaming  or viewing sources on my site. What you will find are honest reviews – if a movie is utter garbage and not worth spending time watching, I will let you know!

My reviews are currently sorted by Genre, by my Rating Score, by Format, and by the LGBTQ Spectrum. Feel free to search for your favourite title or peruse through the everything to find something interesting. And don’t hesitate to suggest a film for review if you don’t see it listed yet!

Lastly, subscribe to my mailing list to be notified when new reviews are posted!

Queer Western Films

Hark! The Herald Michael Sings!

Ok… first off, I am NOT singing! (I mean, I can sing – but not today.) But I do have a rather difficult announcement to make: I’m putting Queer Film Reviews “On Hold”. Why? Well, while I haven’t shared too much on my personal life, my life has been full

Queer Action Films

When you think of what defines an Action film, certain images or scenes come to mind. Car chases, gun fights, battle scenes, and more. In fact, in order to claim the “Action” genre tag from IMDb, a film must contain “numerous scenes where action is spectacular and usually destructive. Often

When You Cannot Stream or Buy – Ethical Issues Within Queer Cinema

While supporting queer writers, actors, artists, etc are fundamental to continue creating new queer content – what happens when you cannot actually FIND a queer film? Older films, and most foreign queer films, don’t often have the same distribution as mainstream studio releases. Independent films, TV Movies, or even films
