“Eating Out” – The Entire Banquet

“Eating Out” – The Entire Banquet

There are many crazy things people do for love, to land that perfect person. Some people write poems and send flowers, others attempt to arrange serendipity, and some even go for loud obvious displays of affection (something quite common in the plots of most teenage focused films!) But “Eating Out” and the subsequent sequels takes those antics to an entirely new dimension – changing one’s sexuality. However, what seems like a great idea inevitably leads…

5 Christmas Films that are Kinda Queer

5 Christmas Films that are Kinda Queer

While there are a handful of Holiday & Christmas films that feature queer lead characters or storylines, there are even more that continue to use the “gay” character as the sidekick/best friend/brother/et al trope. They’re only “kinda queer”. There’s a handful of reasons for this: Yes, all of these films do have a gay/lesbian/queer character. Or they might have a gay/queer side story. But does that mean the actual film is deserving of the title…

5 MORE Queer Action Films

5 MORE Queer Action Films

Three years ago, I first tackled the Action film genre and compiled the best 5 Queer Action Films. Since then, we’ve had a few more queer action films enter the scene – so it was time for a second look. Thus today, I’m bringing you 5 MORE Queer Action Films! If you recall those first five queer action films (or if you’ve just come back after taking a peak at them!), they may not have…

5 Queer Christmas Film Reviews for 2019

5 Queer Christmas Film Reviews for 2019

‘Tis the season to deck the halls, make ourselves a cup of hot cocoa, and cuddle up by the fire while watching classic Christmas films! Well… I’m actually trying to stay cool and not get sunburn while getting ready for the Christmas BBQ – while singing Christmas carols in jandals… ? This holiday season will be my second Christmas down here in New Zealand, but I am still not sure I can adapt from the…

5 Queer Christmas Film Reviews for 2020

Ho! Ho! Ho! And Merry Queermas! Oh, it’s “Christmas?” Pssh! Whether you want to call this time of year the Christmas season, the Holiday season, or something else entirely – there’s one thing that can never go amiss: Christmas films! While I shared my Top 5 Favourite Queer Christmas Films last year, there are plenty more to fill out this specific niche within the queer film oeuvre. (And there’s even MORE premiering this 2020 Christmas…

5 Queer Christmas Films To Look Out For!

5 Queer Christmas Films To Look Out For!

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas! (Yes… I KNOW it’s only November… but the first film/series premieres tonight!) While this year hasn’t given us too much look forward to, there’s something special about the Christmas holidays. I will freely admit that since moving to New Zealand, I truly miss the cold weather, the snow, and everything else that you think of to bring you into that special holiday spirit. But the one element…

Agender Films to Watch for Agender Pride Day

Agender Films to Watch for Agender Pride Day

May 19 is Agender Pride Day, so you know what that means? Happy Agender Pride Day! For anyone who isn’t familiar with Latin, the prefix “a-” means “without”. Thus, agender means one who is without gender. Folks who identify themselves as agender do not associate with one particular gender. Other terms used include genderblank, genderfree, genderless, gendervoid, non-gendered, ungendered, and null gender. Many use the pronouns “they/them”, however people choose whatever they feel comfortable using….

Dark Queer Christmas Films

Dark Queer Christmas Films

For the last four years each holiday season, I’ve shared a Christmas-themed highlighting five queer Christmas films. I’ve done the “kinda” queer Christmas films (see HERE and HERE) as well as the Queer Kinda “Christmas” Films (see HERE and HERE). While it’s been interesting to note films with those subtle differences, this year I’ve decided to steer away from that and head into brand NEW territory! DARK Queer Christmas Films! When most folks think of…

Even MORE Queer Romance Films

Even MORE Queer Romance Films

When you think of film genres, there are a few that will jump to most folk’s mind: Drama, Comedy, Action, … and Romance! In fact, many of these common genres are often combined as the key elements of each genre work well with others. For example, Romance and Comedy blend into another genre itself: the Romcom! But today, I’m focusing mainly on the Romantic elements – even if some of the films below incorporate other…

More “Kinda” Queer Christmas Films

More “Kinda” Queer Christmas Films

In 2020, I shared my Christmas post that stirred up a bit of discussion: Christmas Films that are Kinda Queer. Having rewatched most of these films since then, I stand by my decision that all of those films are only KINDA queer Christmas films. But there actually are even MORE films that meet the same criteria! Which is exactly why this year’s post was needed. But first, let me refresh you on what defines a…

More Queer Comedy Films

More Queer Comedy Films

Last year I shared five Queer Comedy Films – all FIVE of which are incredible comedies! But it’s time I make a confession… I had quite a difficult time paring down a rather long list of amazing queer comedy films to just five. I simply couldn’t! Somehow I managed to select just ten films. I listed them by IMDb’s rating, and only shared the first five in last year’s post. And now it’s time to…

More Queer Drama Films

More Queer Drama Films

Last year, I shared my list of five Queer Drama Films. But if you recall, I had a difficult time picking only five dramas to make the cut. To be fair, there are TONS of amazing and worthy queer dramas to choose from. So this month we’re going to revisit the drama genre with five MORE Queer Drama Films that are worth watching! If you missed that post, I highly encourage you to go check…

More Queer Romance Films

More Queer Romance Films

‘Tis the month of love & romance – it’s Valentine’s Day! Time to get bombarded with pink & red hearts, Cupid’s arrows, and outbursts of love. While not everyone is ready to enjoy this commercial holiday, it can be hard to ignore the allure of romcoms or romantic films. (For those of you looking for something different, unfortunately this post isn’t for you). If you’re after some great queer romcoms, you can check out this…

Queer Action Films

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 includes non-stop motion, high energy physical stunts, chases, battles, and destructive crises (floods, explosions, natural disasters, fires, etc.)” Oh, and there has to be more…

Queer Adult Films

Queer Adult Films

Today we’re venturing into a bit of a grey area… Queer Adult Films. I’m sure with those words alone, you’ve got a certain kind of film in mind. But wait – Michael, are you actually going to review THOSE kinds of films! Nope! While many folks might not see the difference, there actually is a subtle distinction between queer adult films and porn. So what makes a film an “Adult” film instead of just calling…
