The fact that "Maurice" is on that list, gives a certain validity to it.
|by Screen Gem||reply 2||09/20/2010|
All that list does is show how there are so few good gay films.
I'm surprised they could come up with 50 and keep a straight face.
|by Screen Gem||reply 3||09/20/2010|
I actually thought that Bareback Mountain sucked!;)Maurice on the other hand was a gem for the ages.....
|by Screen Gem||reply 4||09/20/2010|
"Jeffrey" plummets from #18 to #44.
|by Screen Gem||reply 5||09/20/2010|
The list is pretty good imho, but some choices like Scott Pilmgrim at #45 seem a bit odd since I don't think it's a 100 % gay themed movie per se (haven't seen it yet though).
|by Screen Gem||reply 6||09/20/2010|
Ok, let me try to digest this one.
Eating Out? I Love You Philip Morris?
Two of the worst movies ever made, gay or straight.
but not Law of Desire, Capote, Farewell, My Concubine, The Kids Are All Right, Death in Venice, or Mala Educacion?
W.H.A.T. T.H.E. F.U.C.K.!!!!

I can't even believe "Burnt Money" isn't on that list. The most fan-fucking-tastic gay-themed movie, with two of the most gorgeous actors ever. Go figure.

Casper Andreas must be having a meltdown about now.
|by Screen Gem||reply 9||09/20/2010|
#9, jokes aside I think Between Love and Goodbye is a pretty good movie.
And I prefer the sequel of Eating Out over the first one even though Ryan Carnes isn't in it. Trashy fun entertainment.
Another one I like and didn't make it on the list is Make the Yuletide Gay with Canadian Italian twink Adamo Ruggiero.
Still I like the list, because it has a fair amount of foreign releases (like the German Summer Storm, or the Frensh Love Songs or Just a Question of Love).

"Big Eden" wins just for shirtless Tim DeKay playing gay in his pre-White Collar days. But, "Were the World Mine," really?
|by Screen Gem||reply 11||09/20/2010|
ANOTHER COUNTRY should be on that list
|by Screen Gem||reply 12||09/20/2010|
That fact Brokeback is in the top ten makes this list very suspect. It was a horrible movie.
|by Screen Gem||reply 13||09/20/2010|
"Brokeback Mountain" was # 1 three years in a row.
|by Screen Gem||reply 14||09/20/2010|
Shelter and Latter Days may belong in the Top 50 -- but they certainly aren't Top 10 material.
|by Screen Gem||reply 15||09/20/2010|
Why don't just call it the "Gay People's Choice Favorite Gay Films" because that's what it is. What a joke list! Oh how the young forget their gay history. LOL!
|by Screen Gem||reply 16||09/20/2010|
Total joke of a list.... I agree.
|by Screen Gem||reply 17||09/20/2010|
It does say "favorite" in the title, R16, not "the best" or "greatest." Now unclench your sphincter before you break your buttplug.

Props for including Rocky Horror Picture Show.
But, no Showgirls?
No Clue? No Steel Magnolias?
Gay movies have to be *about* being gay? They can't be films beloved by gays that capture their humor, voices and obsessions? How literal.
|by Screen Gem||reply 19||09/20/2010|
It's a reader's poll, which explains the emphasis on recent films and the inconsistency of what's classified as "gay."
|by Screen Gem||reply 20||09/20/2010|
I loved Soapdish! I also liked Big Business (gay theme in that film, a well)

|by Screen Gem||reply 22||09/20/2010|
Good to see Dawson's 50 Load Weekend made the list!
|by Screen Gem||reply 23||09/20/2010|
There are no PRON movies on the list.
|by Screen Gem||reply 24||09/21/2010|
No "Come undone" or "Broken Sky"?
|by Screen Gem||reply 25||09/22/2010|
"I can't even believe "Burnt Money" isn't on that list. The most fan-fucking-tastic gay-themed movie..."
|by Screen Gem||reply 26||09/22/2010|
The problem with Burnt Money is that despite having two of the most beautiful men in history playing lovers, we never see them making love. But we sure as hell see a lot of het sex.
Do agree that Broken Sky should be in the top 5.
|by Screen Gem||reply 27||09/22/2010|
We do never see them making love in "Burnt Money." Except for that scene near the end when they are cradled in each others arms, shirtless on the floor, and Noriega kisses Sbaraglia and then reaches up and starts rubbing Sbaraglia's peen.
That doesn't count in your book, I know, but it should be just enough to rate somewhere on the list. Or at least be enough to knock some low quality crap like any of those "Eating Out" movies off the list. Just saying.

I almost thought Weekend wasn't going to be on r29's list and I was prepared to go into a rage.
