So FUCKING FUNNY, is an understatement is all I can say. This movie required my buddy Ross and I to pause it so that we could finish laughing at the awesomeness of the Dialoge. To say that these bitches are CUNTY is also quite inadequate!
When I first decided to watch this I was kind of tipsy as was Ross and we figured we might have made it through the first ten minutes, but no! It starts out hilarious and just keeps on going. Though this is about as low budget as you can imagine it is very worth your time.
Now these “trannies” are more like drag queens with breast implants, in that they work at a club and do performances (however it does seem that they live their lives as women). But the main story line is that there is some violence that takes place against them, they learn some skills and then seek revenge on their attackers.
Watch this movie! The dialogue is spectacular and it never gets to awfully heavy. Trust me, this is not a waste of time. I had my doubts at first and if your really leery (thinking that it may just be for gay audiences) give it 10 or 15 minutes and you will not be disappointed.
This shit was funny as fuck yall. Now originally I was hesitant, especially since it was released in 1990 and I didn’t recognize any of the actors names. But I’m always a sucker for Upper East Side Manhattan and a comedy of manners. So with those combined in the description I was ready to watch this.
Now to say this movie is slow moving is actually pretty fair. It isn’t a fast paced physical comedy with laughs generated from people falling down. Instead it is entirely driven by the dialoge. Now it is made and set in 1991 Upper East Side Manhattan during debutante season. The script is what really makes this movie so freaking good. The lines are great but its the subtle wittiness that keeps you laughing the whole time. There were several times whilst watching this that I had to ask “did he really just say that with a straight face”
In fact I thought this movie was so funny that I watched the first ten minutes and knew that I could not watch it alone. I had to wait for my buddy Ross to come over and boy I’m glad I did. This movie is so quotable is ridiculous. I highly recommend this movie, There are a few attractive guys in it and the early 90’s clothes provide a great reminder to how great living in 2011 is, at least for chicks (this movie had some horrible dresses) but upper class men’s clothes really haven’t changed much.
So if you’re in the mood for a witty yet laugh out loud comedy this is for you!
Though the title makes it sound intrguing, low budget and possibly just humoursly bad. It is in fact only one of those three: Low Budget. I talk alot about the 10-15 minute test but when it was time for me and my buddy Ross to call it quits on this one we had only made it through the first 9 minutes.
This movie is HORRIBLE, disturbing and just downright confusing. From what I saw it was some kind of girl-got-raped-ritualistically-and-now-is-seeking-vengeance-if-she-can-get-off-the-drugs type story line.
Really people Don’t waste your time with the utter piece of shit.
So I decided to give this flick a try because of to main factors: It’s Australian and It’s classified as “Satanic Stories” on Netflix. I tend to find demon possession kind of scary if not at least interesting, and I really haven’t been let down by the Aussies yet when it comes to movies.
So the premise of this movie is that a newly single mom movies to suburban Australia with her college aged son and two smaller children. Well in the intro to this movie (which takes place 30 years ago) there is a crazy cultish demon worshiping thing going on. I personally was still kind of confused about what happened in the beginning. Anyway, most of the evilness revolves around this odd clubhousey type building in the backyard. And guess what, the demon presence has a particular taste for currupting children.
Now there was a point where I turned this bullshit off because I thought it was going to go into the realm of “creature feature” and actually show a demon stalking around but that turned out not to be the case much to my relief. The acting in this movie is pretty horrible and there are only two attractive guys (not even really hot but at least pleasant to look at) one of which is the douchy real estate agent and the other is the college aged son. Alot of movies I watch I find that I would enjoy them more watching them with other people but that is definetly not the case with this one. Though it was somewhat entertaining I would feel bad making somebody else watch it with me.
So I just finished watching the first four seasons of this show that are available for instant on Netflix. All I can say is WOW! When I first heard of this show I thought that it would most likely be pretty lame, but then I heard some people whose recommendations I trust say good things about it. So when I saw it show up as a new arrival in the tv shows section I figured I would give it an episode or two to see if I liked it.
Well six hours later I found myself fully immersed in this show. Lifetime did not disappoint with this one. Not only are the four main women and one man pretty good people but they don’t make the show all about complaining and they keep the caddiness to the side characters. Now don’t get me wrong, there are some points where this show becomes a crytacular and reduces the watcher to a blubbering mess but over all you’re excited for these people and their spouses and really wish them well.
I won’t give any spoilers because I do think that this show is very much worth watching but I will say that somehow this show manages to have a villain type character for the first couple of seasons that results in an amazing and satisfying come-upins. Though I will say there is very little sexually related drama. People for the most part are not sleeping around. Also the husbands are pretty attractive especially Pamela’s husband Chase. He is possibly one of the hottest men on tv. As for celebrity presence. There are special appearances (Wynonna Judd and Jill Biden) but the cast is pretty much unknowns save for Catherine Bell (of JAG fame) and Kim Delaney. I tend to prefer when shows have mostly people I haven’t seen before that way I don’t think back to their characters on other shows.
Now do I think that it is very realistic? I can’t really say. I was in the Navy, and I did know some good wives there but for the most part I don’t think they were anything like the chicks and one husband on the show. And there is alot of what would probably be unrealistic mingling between Officer and Enlisted wives. This show is also very pro-military which I liked but may not suit everyone.
So If you are also a fan of shows like JAG and NCIS and even Battlestar Galactica, then you would also probably like this show. At least give it an episode or two before casting judgement.
Finally finished watching this show! Its only two seasons and since it is a BBC Drama and the English don’t know how to keep a show on tv the two seasons are good and leave you wanting more. Now I do have to admit that I stopped watching after I finished the first season but got bored and decided to finish it today and boy am I GLAD I did.
This show is a post apocalyptic series but instead of a commonly used zombie scenario everybody is just dead. A flu type virus kills off 99% of the human population and the only people that are left are the ones that have some form of natural immunity. The first season is really good and is mainly about a group of people that just happen to find each other and are now trying to survive. They meet many other groups whilst on the road and drama ensues. The second season focuses more on a conspiracy that doesn’t come to a head till the end of the show in the second season.
What I took away most from this show is a wondering about what people are actually like deep down. Are we inherently good or are we inherently bad. Its a question that is never asked on the show but by watching peoples actions one is left to figure that out on their own. This show is definitely worth watching and is lamentably only 12 episodes. However; the brits did know that it was going to end so the show does not leave too many questions unanswered. It was made in 2008 and I assume since it is now 2011 there will not be anymore seasons.

Another low budget gay movie, what a surprise! This one however is really not bad. Its primarily about three friends on Halloween. One friend is a guy that is now engaged to a woman, the other is a pretty Twinkie but cute and not campy gay, the third is the hag. Apperently back in High School (which I’m guessing was only maybe three years ago at the most) these kids went on a camping trip that resulted in the “straight” guy not being so straight. Well those issues come up again as the three friends plus a tag along newer friend traipse around San Francisco on Halloween night in a quest to find some Ecstasy.
Now If your thinking High-pace, crazy drug dealers, in sane antics similar to GO type of movie then you are very wrong. The pace of this movie is slow but it works, it’s almost more reflective than it is slow. I liked this movie but I really don’t find to many gay movies that are completely devoid of a positive aspect, though there are a few.
More than anything this flick is about unrequited passion, lust, and love. Its not one to watch with friends and try and have a good time with. I didn’t cry during this movie but came pretty close, though I did watch it in the dark, by myself and was kind of drunk. But before yall roll your eyes and think you know how this movie plays out, I can tell you for a fact that it does break the standard norms of the gay unrequited love genre. However if you’re looking for a third wheel fag hag character who actually has a purpose, you’re not going to find it here. The chick speaks about three lines the whole movie and just kind of wanders off aimlessly a few times.
Overall I enjoyed this movie, and it really brought up alot of my own personal shit, so if you are the type that journals or a diarist then make sure you keep what you write in close at hand. And yes there are some funny scenes but honestly not to many, this isn’t a comedy even by accident like so many low budg movies turn out to be.
This was a little gem I found in my “top picks” section. It’s just an hour and was filmed in 2009. It’s about a woman that owns a kind of upscale private Manhattan hair salon. Now the movie isn’t really about her, it’s about her clients and how all they ever talk about whilst getting their hair cut now a days is the recession and not being able to find work. Now her clients, some of which are pretty wealth or in this case were pretty wealthy, would be considered for the most part upper middle class. There really is no racial or ethic diversity it’s really all white business type people that come through despite what the description says on Netflix.
So If your in the mood for something educational but entertaining and from a first person point of view then this is a good pick. Also If you’re like me and like to watch something while you eat dinner but don’t want to have to worry about following plot then this is really good choice.
Highly entertaining but possibly one of the most Ghetto things I’ve ever seen in my life and Belly is one of my favorite movies. The description of this movie is that it’s Method Man’s directorial debut and is showing his serious side. BULLSHIT! Yes it’s a documentary about strippers from across the country but at the very begining of the movie he tells the viewers to “roll somthing up, smoke it and pass it around” and yes if it is your thing, a little weed would make this movie better.
Periodically other rappers hang out with Method Man as he travels to five citites and samples the strip joints (West Chester NY, Atlanta GA, Miami FL, Huston TX, and Los Angles CA). Now he does meet some interesting girls on this tour and things they same are really crazy most of the time. Now I have been to alot of strip clubs in my day but have never really been to a Black strip club before and that is what this movie is about. There are only about three white people in this whole movie. So from a sociological point of view it’s pretty interesting.
But the girls are what this movie is about and you do learn quite a bit about them. A few times through out this flick Method Man (when he isn’t high as shit) talks about how he wanted to learn what these girls were like in real life not just on stage. The viewer does get a glimpse in to their real lives, a few are lesbians in committed relationships, a few are just single girls trying to save money to start their own business, and most have families to support. But to often the personal lives of the girls in this movie is eclipsed by questions like ”Are there problems with girls not washin properly?” “can you do any special tricks”(Mind you these girls do got some tricks now).
Is this movie watchable? Yes. Is this a feat of cinematic art? Fuck no! It’s about ghetto strippers for God’s sake! So if you want to have a little bit of a laugh and see somethings you might not normally get to see then give this movie a try. and since I hate spoilers all I’ll say is in LA even Method Man was speechless about what happened.
