  1. 😉 Yeah I mean a lot of the gay theme movies you can probably find on Amazon Prime- they erotic I leave up to you
  2. This is one of those movies were all the elements are so right you wish it was better
  3. It goes from $29.99 a month to $16.99 a month depending what plan you choose- they also have discount offers check it out.
  4. They have two streaming services one for gay theme movies and another for gay erotic films ( for those who are interested in this sort of thing)
  5. Marco Berger the director specializes in this type of gay cinema in which cute Argenitne boys ogle each other for most of the movie but nothing really happens; but he knows how to cast good looking young actors....
  6. Mike Flanagan has adapted Henry James classic ghost story "The Turn of the Screw" into a miniseries for Netflix. It's more drama than horror and anyone familiar with Jack Clayton's "The Innocents" will see recognize the familiar plot. Nanny is hired to look over two children in an English country state and she begins to suspect that there are supernatural forces haunting the house. Flanagan has updated the story to modern times and I think that's his first mistake. This sort of ghost story is better in a period setting. He also had to modernized the characters and now for example the malevo
  7. The movie had a lot of things going for it- specially Donald Glover as Lando but the bottom line is that its story we really did not need to see
  8. "Ghost House" (1988) Italian made rip off of "Poltergeist" about the usual group of young people investigating paranormal events and getting killed instead. The main culprit seem to be an overgrown little girl and her sinister clown doll. The death scenes are pretty dull for Euro horror. It will make you very very sleepy- out on Blu Ray from Scream Factory or better yet watch it on You Tube
  9. Good choices specially Deneuve who would have been a classic Hitchcock blonde. Alain Delon good choice too. Connery would have been perfect but he was too associated with James Bond by then and this is a more realistic spy movie- notice how Hitchcock seems to avoid any action scenes.
  10. "Dr Jeckyll and the Wolfman" (1972) Paul Naschy continues his Valdeman Danisnky saga - this time the Wolf Man hopes to find a cure for his lycanthropy by consulting the great grandson of the infamous Dr Jeckyll- this of course is not a good idea. If you are expecting Mr Hyde and the Wolf Man to go mano and mano the movie does not go in that direction. This is well crafted Naschy production with plenty of classic Universal horror atmosphere . You can watch it for free in a decent print on You Tube which for some reason deletes this opening credit sequence. On you Tube the film is dubbed into
  11. Yes I agree or his film like "God Told Me To" were too ambitious for his low budgets.
  12. Yeah I know what you mean it's starts off really good
  13. "The Majorettes" (1987) also released as "One By One". This starts off as the usual slasher with high school cheerleaders as the main target- the script by John Russo based on his novel throws in other elements including a crazy nurse, red neck bad guys and plenty of young female bodies on display. The most surprising part of the movie is when Kevin Kindlin who plays the jock hero takes off his shirt and turns into a Rambo like avenger. You can see it on Amazon or on You Tube
  14. "American Horror Story" has been on the air since 2011-like most anthology shows it's a mixed bag of good and bad episodes well in this case each season tells one story. They all look fantastic and have amazing cast but Ryan Murphy, it's creator seems to be running out of ideas and repeating himself. I caught Season 8 "Armageddon" and thought it was really insane and stupid at the same time- the show starts off with a nuclear attack and how various characters including Joan Collins try to escape to fancy bomb shelter. Two young people Timothy (Kyle Allen ) and Emily (Ash Santos) are taken
  15. This is one of those movies that less you know the better- Nick (Alex Pettyfer) and his younger brother Sam (James Freedson-Jackson) are on the run after escaping from a crime scene. But what is the true nature of their relationship? And how is it linked to the crime they might have committed. Writer /Director Christopher Radcliff and his co director Lauren Wolkstein create a disorienting eerie atmosphere which keeps you guessing until the end. Pettyfer and Freedson- Jackson are excellent. This is not a film for everyone specially those who were upset by the intergenerational romance i
  16. "Blood Hook" (1986) made in Wisconsin regional horror about a deranged fisherman using a hook to kill his victims. The movie was barely released by Troma now has been given a deluxe blu ray treatment . It has some gory bits and lot of unintentional laughs
  17. Forsythe had a long career for a reason - he was the reliable mid 20th century American male type. Stafford is an attractive man but he seems to be sleep walking in "Topaz" he seems a bit more exciting playing the french James Bond. I thought Gregory Peck as the lead for "Topaz" but how was he going to play Deveraux? He is too American
  18. Frederick Stafford played a French version of James Bond maybe that is one the reasons he was cast in "Topaz"- he is a bit more alive in this trailer
  19. Stafford does look like Grant but he lacks Grant's star charisma. He is closer to John Gavin. Maybe you are right and Hitchcock might have wanted Grant. The problem I have with the Deveraux story line is that he is never in any real danger not even in Cuba- but Hitchcock seems to want to avoid any real action scene- we never see son in law's encounter with the Russian agents. Forsythe is as usual dependable but dull. I kept hoping he turned out to be Deverauxe's lover ! I mean he keeps interrupting the relationship with the boring French wife- another role that would have benefited from a s
  20. Alfred Hitchcock's "Topaz" (1969) it's an interesting but flawed film. I always thought it was probably Hitchcok's dullest movie until I re watched on blu ray. It's better than I remember- the blu ray has Hitcchock's original long cut with the the three different endings as extra. The first problem is the episodic script about spies during the cold war. We never really care about Deveraux( Fredrick Stafford) he seems send other people to do his spy work and there is never any sense that he is really in danger. The best part of the movie to me was the section set in Cuba with Karin Dor and
  21. The first "The Fast and the Furious" has a very homoerotic subtext- in the rest of the series they acted more like brothers
  22. I also think that Crowley's play is in the Broadway tradition of sophisticated comedy which were often about the upper class. The first act is essentially funny- it only gets mean and nasty in the second act.
  23. Crowley based in on his personal experience so I imagine these are the upper middle class gays that he knew- well the black guy works in a book store,Emory is now a Latino Robin de Jesus who gives one of the best performances and the hustler in the youngest. The characters might be more radicalized later
  24. Yes it's the Broadway cast but it's a movie not just a video of the play
