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…

NEW Queer Christmas Films & Shorts for 2023

NEW Queer Christmas Films & Shorts for 2023

Last year only gave us three new queer holiday films, which was quite the downturn from 2021 where we had a slew! Thankfully, there’s a couple more queer Christmas films premiering for 2023. The queer holiday film oeuvre has simply exploded in the last decade – and it’s amazing to witness. At this point, there’s just about a queer Christmas film, short, or series for everyone to enjoy. We actually have quite a wide variety…

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…

Best 5-Star Queer Films to Buy/Watch on Amazon & Prime Video

Best 5-Star Queer Films to Buy/Watch on Amazon & Prime Video

I’ve already shared the list of MY Top 10 Best-Rated Queer Films to Watch/Buy on Amazon and Prime Video. In that post, I focused solely on queer & LGBTQ films that I have reviewed here on Queer Film Reviews. However, some of you felt that I had left out some equally amazing queer films from that list. (And some didn’t quite realize that I ONLY included films I had written a full review on…) So…

Queer Coming Out Films

Queer Coming Out Films

Coming out is a special and signification milestone for every queer person. For some, it’s a positive experience as family and friends both welcome and may have already suspected it. For others it may not be the best experience of their lives, but it works out in the end. Mine falls into that category, and you can read all about it HERE. But for many, it still is a negative moment; something that is not…

Queer Animation Films

Queer Animation Films

When you hear the word animation, you normally don’t think of queer films. And some would even go so far as to think of cartoons or “kids” movies. Thankfully, neither misconception is true! And to prove that, this month’s theme focuses on Five Queer Animation Films. But as usual, before we dive deeper into these five selected animation films, what exactly IS an “animation” film? Well, according to good ‘ol trusty IMDb, the animation genre…

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…

Queer Reality-TV Films

Queer Reality-TV Films

“Reality-TV” and “Film” usually do not go together. Which is something I discovered with this month’s theme – despite Reality-TV being a legit genre. Reality-TV shows are typically more a TV/Web series rather than a film, and a film that has a “reality-TV’ genre is quite frankly just a documentary. So what exactly is the difference? And perhaps the bigger question is: does a queer reality-tv film actually exist? I’ll confess that this month’s queer…

Queer Music Films

Queer Music Films

There’s a fine line between a queer musical and a queer music film. It’s subtle but rather distinctive. The first is a film whose plot includes songs pertaining to the story; the latter is a film whose story revolves AROUND music or the music industry itself. Yes, it’s rather confusing because many films have music soundtracks – but aren’t musicals. And there are some films that are both music films AND a musical – including…

Pansexual Films to Watch for Pansexual Awareness Day

Pansexual Films to Watch for Pansexual Awareness Day

May 24 is Pansexual Awareness Day, so you know what that means? Happy Pansexual Awareness Day! Pansexuality is the sexual, romantic, or emotional attraction towards people of all genders, or regardless of their sex or gender identity. Yet for such a simple definition, the application of the word is what often trips many folks up! Many pansexuals explain their sexuality as “gender-blind”, ie not letting a person’s sex or gender determine their attraction towards that…

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….

Queer Biography Films For Pride Month

Queer Biography Films For Pride Month

It’s nearly June, so you know what that means, right? It’s PRIDE Month!!! Well, for folks living in the US that is! (For those of us queer folk living in the UK, Australia, & here with me in New Zealand, our Pride month was actually back in February.) During June, all LGBTQ & Queer sites will be promoting various Pride-related posts, products, etc – and many larger companies will be hoping on the Queer bandwagon…

Lesbian Films to Watch for Lesbian Visibility Week

Lesbian Films to Watch for Lesbian Visibility Week

It’s Lesbian Visibility Week!!! But wait… what IS Lesbian Visibility Week? The entire week is dedicated to celebrate lesbians, promoting solidarity with all LGBTQ women and non-binary folks in the queer community. Interestingly, it was originally celebrated during July West Hollywood from 1990-92. However in 2020, backed by Diva magazine, the weeklong celebration was moved to coincide with Lesbian Visibility Day, an annual celebratory day in the UK for lesbians on April 26 that itself…

Best-Rated Queer Films to Buy/Watch on Amazon & Prime Video

Best-Rated Queer Films to Buy/Watch on Amazon & Prime Video

While many today still consider films that feature queer LGBTQ characters and storylines rather niche, that is actually quite far from the reality. There are HUNDREDS of LGBTQ films, shorts, & series to buy on DVD or BlueRay from Amazon alone. In fact, if we focus on queer films you can stream or watch online, there are THOUSANDS – with over two thousand to be found just on Prime Video! So with such a plethora…

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…

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…
