Gay Films »

Films with gay themes, characters, subtext and/or storylines. In other words, even though I’m a lesbian, these are almost always my favorite films. I think because gay men seem to be my people because they are so much easier to be around and aren’t so bitchy to me and they get my writing way better and don’t want to change my reviews because the lady actresses just wouldn’t approve of the picture I included in the review because the two people who even read my website even noticed?!! And they don’t try to hit on me and steal me from my wife and want me to join them in threesomes that don’t involve my wife and isn’t that kind of rude to invite me to a threesome, but not invite my wife too?? And on top of that I’m supposed to sleep with not one, but two women I just met? Logic, people? I’m a woman, remember? Not a man. And isn’t it surprising that ladies can be as disrespectful of relationships as men too? Well, I sure was surprised. Anyway, even though I’m a lesbian, I prefer films about gay men much, much more because for some reason, they are always better. I’m sorry lesbian ladies, but it’s true. I’ve seen hundreds and hundreds of LGBT films now and almost always the men’s films far outshine ours in artistic achievement and reality and digging deep into our homophobia and fears. I don’t know why that is, it just is, or at least it seems that way to me and that sucks because I’m a lesbian and I’d like better movies about me, please, or as my dad always says of me, “And there’s some fiction and fact from Ali’s almanac.” Apparently, I made this up one day when I was 7, but my dad loved it so much, it became the slogan in my home that was said about me. Yep, we had slogans in our home. We had to in order to survive the Joan Crawford Junior that ran the place. My sister’s slogan was, “The World According To Kelli.” And since she is slowly taking over the world, you might want to brush up on your history of Kelli’s Vision of How The World Should Really Be Run. I know I am! Hers is a world not for the lazy or whiny, so be warned if you fall into one or both of those categories. Our family was, what would you call it, a rather dysfunctional family. But who’s isn’t??!! Even that Beaver Cleaver family wasn’t perfect. Except June Cleaver. June was always so lovely and perfect and had the best damn bras ever! God, I miss the 1950s even though I wasn’t alive back then. When it came to June, I was going to grow up and marry her if Haley Mills wasn’t attached, but neither proved to be available, so I married another hot blonde instead and wasn’t I lucky they weren’t available?! Although, I’m not sure I’m worthy of my wife’s beauty. Well, that got sappy, didn’t it and totally off topic?! What even was the topic in the first place?! Oh yeah, gay films. Go watch some. I know I am after all of that sappiness. No wonder I’m just oh so popular with the ladies. Not after they find out I’m not much of a fan of their films. Oh well. And good! That attention is just odd and proves that women are no more respectful of women in relationships than men are, which is rather interesting since women hate Trump and all the other men in the world like him for that very same reason. Hmmmm…Some of that Alanis Morissette irony there. Don’t you think?
