Another Gay Sequel: Gays Gone Wild Review


Terrible
If Another Gay Movie was the gay American Pie, then Another Gay Sequel: Gays Gone Wild is the gay Revenge of the Nerds II: Nerds in Paradise. In this chapter of the saga -- with any luck the last chapter -- our intrepid gay foursome heads to Fort Lauderdale for fun in the sun. Fans of the original movie will notice right away that three of the four leads have been replaced by new actors, a fact the film jokingly acknowledges by pointing out that actors' agents tell them it's OK to do a gay part once but never twice, lest you be typecast for life.

That's no problem for Jonah Blechman, who stars again as the supremely swishy Nico, a lovelorn fashion victim who can never seem to get any nookie. Maybe he'll have better luck at this gay spring break, where he and his buddies, the lovable nerd and the "monogamous" couple (Jake Mosser, Aaron Michael Davies, Jimmy Clabots), enter a contest called "Who can enjoy the greatest number of sexual couplings this weekend?" Actually, the name of the contest is much shorter and it starts with an F.

Another Gay Movie Review


Terrible
If one must find something nice to say about Todd Stephens' Another Gay Movie, then it could be that at the very least this is a film that shows gay teens not suffering through identity crises or worrying about coming out but constantly angling for and talking about sex with the same concentration and lack of shame that hetero teens are always depicted. It's a step in the right direction and a sign that, very slowly, films are finally losing the stigma against showing gay characters who are this at peace with who they are. Of course, the film itself is a shockingly incompetent piece of crap, but at least it got one thing right.

After the banal disaster that was his Gypsy 83 - a road movie whose low point where Stevie Nicks-obsessive Sara Rue falls in love with an Amish guy at a rest stop - it's truly mystifying as to how Stephens was able to pull another movie together. And yet, here it is. Since audiences have already suffered through not just one but two grim sequels to American Pie (not to mention the straight-to-video Band Camp), Stephens must have thought there was room for one more; albeit unofficial, and gay.

Treasure Island (1999) Review


Excellent
It's very refreshing, in today's overexposed and anti-climatic realm of moviemaking, that art still can exist in a medium such as film. It is very refreshing to know that there are still individuals on the fringes, trying their damnedest to re-invent the wheel of cinema. Treasure Island is one of those successful ventures of creating an art film for the sake of taking everything learned about filmmaking, piling it up, and lighting the whole mess on fire.

The story takes place during the second World War in San Francisco. Two intelligence officers are assigned to the duty of creating a false life for a dead man - including family letters, tickets to shows, and love letters from kindred souls - and planting him in Japanese territory to confuse the Japanese military of pending Allied military operations. Naturally, the two officers infuse their own personal letters, hatreds, and family situations into the creation of the life of the dead man. The only problem is that these two officers are the two most messed-up individuals I have seen since Hopper in Blue Velvet.
