  1. 'The Little Vampire" (2017) this is an animated version of story which was previously filmed in 2000. The story is about two thirteen year old boys Tony a human and Rudolph a vampire who become "friends". The two boys are clearly in love with each other even when a female love interested in thrown in Tony only has eyes for his vampire buddy. The vampire hunting villains are also gay coded .
  2. The last time I saw it I saw it was a very effective variation on "The Monkey's Paw" - even Stephen King uses it as flash back story in "Pet Sematary" - I don't think it's suppose to be a serious statement about Vietnam or veterans for PTSD just a horror film about the horrors of war coming home
  3. "The Lost Continent" (1968) this maybe the craziest movie Hammer ever produced based on a Dennis Wheatley novel but it feels as if they put three different scripts in the blender- you get a sea going drama plus a disaster movie plus man eating monsters plus the Spanish Inquisition! It's out on Blu Ray from Scream Factory- the trailer is flat but the actual film is wide screen
  4. "How to Make Monster" (1958) a demented make up man turns teens into killer monsters ( and who knows what else)
  5. "How To Make a Monster" (1958) Peter Dumond (Robert H Harris) a genius make up man hypnotizes two young actors Larry (Gary Clarke) and Tony (Gary Conway) into real life monsters to get rid of his enemies. Dumond and his "assistant" Rivero (Paul Brinegar) are gay coded and have a master/slave relationship , Dumond really loves working with the teen stars and one can only imagine what else he would have them do under hypnosis specially Conway- who started off his career posing for physique magazines. The film works as horror and there are a couple of good shocks . Larry and Tony have girl
  6. Martin and Lewis were close friends and obviously comfortable- my take on this could be that the photographer took the full body shot for himself- I mean that would never have appeared in Life in the 1950's but if you go to the Life archives web site is filled with photos of naked athletes in the locker room . There is even a photo of Pat Boone taking a shower! We might think that was a more repressive era but they seem to have no issues with male nudity
  7. You can find in on line for free if you google it- it's not a very good film but there is plenty of camp- the scene with the hooker is specially interesting and would word a lot better if she turned out to be a he. Law was sexier as Simbad
  8. I'll have to check these out- have you seen " 911" with the gay story line between the paramedics?
  9. " The Last Rafter" (El Ultimo Balsero) this is a Cuban American film about a Ernesto ( Hector Medina) a young man who flees Cuba to search for his father in Miami. He meets Lenin (Chaz Mena) a gay man who had been a friend of his father . The film deals honestly with the Cuban American experience . You can see it on HBO Latino. Medina is very easy on the eyes....

    Halston (2021)

    If you want to get a more realistic view see the excellent CNN documentary
  11. "The Love Machine" (1971) is another Jaqueline Sussan camp classic but it's not as funny as "Valley of the Dolls" Robin Stone ( John Philip Law) sleeps his way to the top of the television industry . Dyan Cannon is sexy funny as the wife of one of the network executives. David Hemmings plays Jerry a gay fashion photographer who lust after Stone . The main problem with the film is that John Philip Law was handsome but cold. In the movies most shocking scene he picks up a hooker and beats the crap out of her hen he suggest he is a closet queen. I think the hooker was suppose to be tr
  12. "Boys from County Hell" (2021) a small town is terrorized by an vampire in this good horror comedy from Ireland. If you like "An American Werwolf in London" you'll love it- you can watch it on Shudder on Amazon,
  13. "The Woman at the Window" (2021) no this lame Hitchcock wanna be is not a horror movie well except for the slasher climax but one has a hard time staying awake during the first hour. Amy Adams plays an agoraphobic who witness a murder or did she? The film wants to be "Rear Window" bit it's closer to that Elizabeth Taylor vehicle "Night Watch" . A lot of name actors show up in this movie which thinks its a serious film about mental illness but it's just boring. A big reveal about the character's family is a real downer and yes the climax is exciting but by then who cares- you can see it on Net
  14. This is not exactly a gay topic but any fans of Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis should google to find the recent photos that have surfaced in which the comedy duo is shown taking a shower together. Dino goes full frontal but Jerry keeps a hand over his private. The pictures were part of a 2018 Sotheby’s auction of items belonging to Frank Branda, Jerry Lewis’s driver and assistant. The auction description listed “4 candid photographs of Lewis and Martin in a steam room and shower, Lewis posing modestly, Martin less so.” Of course TCM will never let me post them here. My question is why were t
  15. Good to see the Time was reasonable
  16. You can see on Amazon pride...

    Halston (2021)

    Halston is a anti -hero I mean it's really hard to feel sorry for the guy- even the growing up gay trauma aspect of the story.

    Halston (2021)

    Ewan McGregor plays the gay fashion designer Halston in this fabulous looking mini series on Netflix but unless you are really fascinated by fashion it's a bit long and would have been better as two hour movie. McGregor gives his all even in the energetic gay love scenes but Krysta Rodriguez as Liza steals all her scenes. This woman deserves to star in a movie musical.
  19. This a result of woke culture which has not concept of history- all police officers are not evil- and we should celebrate of the gay men and women who are in the police force- this is a good reason to boycott this parade
  20. Yes and it's a decent print- I love to see it on DVD
  21. You can see it for free on You Tube
  22. Jacklyn Smith goes from small town hooker to Hollywood wife in "The Users" (1978) a made for tv adaptation of Joyce Harber's Hollywood expose novel. Elena ( Smith ) hooks up with Randy Brentt ( Tony Curtis) while he is on location shooting a movie in Arizona. Rock, I mean Randy brings Elana to Hollywood where her talents are put to good use. Smith looks stunning in all her Nolan Miller gowns but she seems too nice for the character. Elana would have been a perfect role for a young Joan Collins. Curtis is good as the Rock Hudson/Anthony Perkins stand in. Randy is bi-sexual but o
  23. One can only imagine what it would look like now if it had been produced by Netflixx
