HOT MOVIE pics from the Chicago Gay and Lesbian Film Fest, REELING

 which we are sponsoring  
Saturday  night, 
there are a few more films that I
think are  MUST-SEE’s
 this season at REELING !

Sunday Nov 7th at  5:15

One of the funniest and sweetest gay romantic comedies in years, Is It Just Me? delivers a refreshingly witty take on one gay boy’s search for Mr. Right. Cute, but unaware of his adorableness, newspaper columnist Blaine can’t seem to meet guys, let alone form a relationship.

His beefy go-go boy roommate Cameron—who has no shortage of willing partners—can’t understand why he doesn’t pounce and enjoy some one-nighters. Instead, Blaine hides in his room and searches Internet chat rooms for a kindred spirit. He may have found one in the form of Xander, a shy, recently relocated Texan. But when the time comes to exchange photos, Blaine accidentally sends an image of his hunky roommate, and things go from romantically promising to uproariously confusing. This case of mistaken identity escalates when Blaine begs his roommate to go out with the charming, sandy-haired Xander. When it seems they hit it off, our lonely hero feels love has passed him by again…or has it? Think Cyrano de Bergerac by way of Eating Out: writer/director JC Calciano’s first feature film is a hilarious, captivating winner. And the hot guys aren’t bad either!

She’s Manhattan’s most fabulous fruit fly! At nearly 40, Violet (Mindy Cohn from The Facts of Life) is the racy, fun-loving belle of the gay ball. She spends her nights as royalty, but when the party ends she always heads home alone. Says Mindy, “I was a fag-hag from a very young age!”

While Riley, her co-worker, struggles with his baby-crazy boyfriend Markus (Casper Andreas), Violet’s romantic life is nonexistent. How can she keep hoping to find a straight man in a gay bar? Realizing she’s at a certain age and still single, Violet is at a crossroads.

In the fast-paced world of high fashion PR, Riley tells her she needs only to seek out a straight male version of herself—the mythical ‘Fag Stag.’ But the glamorous guru Salome gives her conflicting advice: to nab a man, she insists, Violet must abandon her gay boys once and for all.

When Violet arrives home from yet another disastrous date to find that a gay sex party has been organized in her bedroom, she decides Salome may be right. In order to get a prized man of her own, Violet strikes out on a hilarious quest to change the woman she is. Chasing love at all costs, she may find it in the most unlikely of places.

JESSE ARCHER wrote the screenplay and co-stars in the film. He says, “As a child star of the 80’s, I saw the bubbly Mindy, which made me think she would be one of those girls sticking up for me for being bullied at school. I modeled Violet after her.”

Sidenote –  this is one of those movies that is getting great reviews, but has not gotten a distributorship yet. So it could be a couple years before it comes to NETFLIX. See it now, while you can!


Sure to sell out early!

This movie has been in legal limbo for a year! The highly anticipated film finally hit’s theatres and is also available right now on DVD. Movie – I Love You Phillip Morris

Steven Russell (Jim Carrey) has a quiet life—he’s a Texan police officer, active member of his church, and attentive husband. Ugh, how dreadfully boring!

Thank goodness Steven finds himself in an atrocious car accident that not only rips his life wide open, but propels him out of the closet and into the gay Mecca of the south: Miami. As he revels in the golden luxuries and bronzed male bodies of his new life, the cost of maintaining it soon catches up with him. To support the lifestyle to which he’s so quickly become accustomed, charming Steven turns to cons and lands himself in jail.

Luckily, adorable Phillip Morris (Ewan McGregor) is his cellmate and the two fall in love. Like, immediately. But when Steven has to remain locked in the pen after Phillip is paroled, he breaks free again and again to find his way to the man he loves… using every method imaginable. Theirs is the kind of love that can’t be contained by cinderblocks and metal bars! From directors Glenn Ficarra and John Requa (Bad Santa), I Love You Phillip Morris is a hysterical comedy, grounded in an emotionally honest (and true!) love story.
