An Early Christmas Present!

An Early Christmas Present!

Because Queer Film Reviews has been steadily increasing in popularity since launching last year, it’s time to expand a bit further! (OK… it *might* have something to do with the TONS of Queer films out there – and the many more that keep premiering each year. But let’s pretend my reviews are becoming more popular!) It’s time to “unwrap” your present…

NEW Queer Christmas Films Coming In 2021!

NEW Queer Christmas Films Coming In 2021!

Last year, 2020, was full of a LOT… a year that will not be forgotten for ages to come. But there were some good things – such as all of the Queer Christmas films that broke new ground! Hallmark finally released a film with a gay storyline with The Christmas House, Lifetime progressed from the gay sub-story to a true gay Christmas storyline with “The Christmas Setup”, and we had a few other films that…

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…

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…

Queer Christmas Films for 2021

Queer Christmas Films for 2021

Last year saw a huge surge of new Queer Christmas films – it was wonderful to see! I actually recapped the highs and lows of last year’s bunch in my earlier post: “8 NEW Queer Christmas Films Coming in 2021.” The Queer Christmas films sub-niche within the queer film oeuvre has grown exponentially in the past few years. [And thankfully that doesn’t seem to be stopping!] In fact, if I look at my total queer…

Queer Christmas Films To Look Out For!

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…

Queer Christmas Shorts for 2020

Queer Christmas Shorts for 2020

Welcome to the kickoff of my NEW weekly Queer Shorts reviews! And what better way to start off this Christmas present, but with Queer CHRISTMAS short films! Excited? I hope so – because now I have even more work to do. Kidding! I enjoy watching films, especially the queer ones. While I feel I am still developing my voice as a reviewer, I find joy bringing these queer films to your attention. While many are…

Queer Christmas Shorts for 2021

Queer Christmas Shorts for 2021

Last year I debuted my Queer Short Film Reviews for Christmas with “Queer Christmas Shorts For 2020“. Until life got in the way, I think it was a great way to kick off a new part of my site & my second newsletter – AND I gave you all some extra Christmas cheer! Even though I took a break for much of 2021 because… well, I needed a break. Given the events of 2021, I…

Queer Kinda Christmas Films

Queer Kinda Christmas Films

AKA: Queer films set at Christmas, but aren’t actually Christmas films. Confused? That’s OK! So was I while watching a few of these films. When searching for queer Christmas films to review this year, these five films showed up within the results. But most of their posters don’t scream out “Christmas” so I was left rather puzzled. It was only upon further examination within their synopsis that you learn that all of these films are…
