Description: 

12435__quincinera_l Kao svaka prosječna gay domaćica uredno sam nakon ručka ubacio ovaj meksikanski film u dvd player ( kao zamjenu za špansku seriju ) i pripremio papirnate maramice, dok je gay muž otišao sa društvom da odigra partiju fudbala!

Film je počeo sa nečim nalik na 15-tim rođendanom mekskanke Magdalene, koja sa porodicom živi neđe u USA. Muzika, dirljivi govori, prijateljice koje se dive novoj haljini, ukratko ništa nije izostalo. Podsjetilo me kad sam ja imao 15 godina. Iako nisam imao ovakav rođendan, dobio sam po jedan poklon od omiljenog rodjaka i od najboljeg druga! ( obadvojica su mislila da su oni ti koji su mi uzeli nevinost! )


Sve u svemu Magdalena ubrzo nakon rođendana izgubi nevinost od jednog lokalnog momka i pri tome ostane trudna! Bezobrazni momci iskoriste pa te ostave u takvom stanju! A niko ne misli kako će te okolina posmatrati sa tolikim stomakom. Sva sreća te sam se ja oduvjek pazio i koristio kondome!
Ali Magdalena nije. Otac, primitivac meksikanski je izbaci iz kuće i ona morade da ode kod starog ujaka koji je živio sa njenim daljim rođakom Carlosom, poštenim i vrijednim gay momkom, kojeg bi mogli svrstati u one gayeve koji sve te seksualne radnje dobro rade ali se ne hvale sa time!

 
jesse-garciaCarlos se sticajem okolnosti zaljuibio u lokalnog bogatog bijelca koji ga je iskorištavao i trošio njegov veliki penis. Kada je Carlos otkrio da tom bogatom gadu nije ništa do seksualna igračka pao je u depresiju iz koje se teško izvlačio. Još kada se tome doda da mu je u kuću dola trudna Magdalena nije mu bilo lako!
Ono što me oduševilo kod Carlosa je kad je Magdaleni predložio da je oženi kako joj dijete ne bi bilo bez oca. Na ovo su sve gay domaćice zaplakale , pa i ja! Ode mi pakovanje papirnatih maramica, jedva sačuvah jednu za večernju masturbaciju!

 
Carlos svojim velikodušnim gestom dobija mnogo uz malo truda. Ima bebu i ženu , a da nije morao da svoj penis umače u tu groznu vlažnu rupetinu!
Naravno neću vam ispričati film do kraja, pa da me poslije kritikujete kako sam vam pokvario ugođaj gledanja filma.
Baš se iznenadih koliko sličnosti ima meksikanso-američka kultura sa ovom našom balkanskom! Čitajući novine vidim da još uvjek ima slučajea da roditelji izbace djevojku iz kuće jer je maloljetna ostala trudna. Samo malo je gay momaka koji bi potrčali u pomoć!

 


'Quinceanera' needs some spice
By JANE STEVENSON - Toronto Sun


PLOT: Complications arise when a 14-year-old Latino teen in L.A. discovers she's pregnant just before her Quinceanera -- the traditional celebration of her 15th birthday. Shunned by her family, she goes to live with her open-minded elderly uncle and gay cousin.

 
jesse_garciaThe same filmmakers who brought you 2002's The Fluffer -- a supposedly lighthearted look inside the world of gay porn -- switch gears dramatically with their new movie, Quinceanera.
Directing-screenwriting team and real-life partners Richard Glatzer and Wash Westmoreland were inspired to write the kitchen sink drama after being asked to photograph the quinceanera -- the wedding-like and traditional celebration of a Latina's 15th birthday -- of a next-door neighbour.

 
Newcomer Emily Rios plays Quinceanera's lead role of Magdalena, a Latina teenager living in L.A.'s predominantly working class and Mexican Echo Park, who aspires to have the same fancy quinceanera as her cousin Eileen.
Instead, Magdalena will have Eileen's dress dyed pink -- and it is during its alterations that family members begin to have their suspicions that she's with child.


After two pregnancy tests confirm as much, Magdalena's religious father, Ernesto, turns his back on her, despite her claims she's never been with a boy in the biblical sense.
"A woman who hasn't been with a man, doesn't end up with a baby. Period," he says.
But Magdalena's assertions will have further significance as the story progresses.


quinceEnter into the picture Eileen's brother Carlos (Jesse Garcia of The Shield fame), a tough-looking, heavily tattooed car-wash worker who's also been shunned by his family for being gay.
Carlos lives with an elderly and kind uncle Tomas (veteran actor Chalo Gonzalez) and two dogs in a small garden house in the backyard of a home owned by a gay couple, and the two outsiders open their doors to Magdalena.
Things become further complicated when Carlos, who's initially involved in a three-way with the landlords, begins an affair with just one of them.
While Rios, Garcia and Gonzalez are all good in their roles, more time should have been spent on the story and script, which was written in a paltry three weeks and it shows.


The virgin birth aspect of the film doesn't really go anywhere and the back story of Tomas, elegantly played by Gonzalez, who steals most of the scenes he's in some 37 years after his debut in Sam Peckinpah's The Wild Bunch, is often more intriguing.
Still, the filmmakers show off Echo Park, where they actually live, in all its vibrant glory, and flesh out the significance of the quinceanera with larger issues of neighbourhood gentrification, teenage pregnancy, homophobia, non-traditional families and tolerance.
Quinceanera, which won the Dramatic Grand Jury Prize and Audience Award at Sundance earlier this year, is in English and Spanish with English subtitles.
BOTTOM LINE: Despite some nice performances from newcomer Emily Rios, Jesse Garcia (The Shield) and Chalo Gonzalez (The Wild Bunch), this film about a pregnant teenager in L.A.'s predominantly Mexican and working-class Echo Park neighbourhood needs some story and script work.

Duration: 15 min
Rating: 6.1/10

Actors: J.T. Tepnapa, Brent Corrigan

 

 

Description:


Nedelja baš i nije dan za gledanje horor filmova , al danas me nekako zapalo da skinem i pogledam ovaj kratki film režisera Jody Wheelera koji sudeći po nekim člancima na netu ima više ovakvih filmova!
Uz jutarnju kafu ovaj 15-to minutni film pogledajte sami ili u gay društvu je film u klasi soft porn kategorije začinjen hororom na kraju!
Ono što me je dojmilo je rečenica koju je nakon seksa izgovorio onaj momak koji je okončao u ormaru: "Budi hrabar, ne zovi me, ja ću ti se javiti!"
Slično i ja izgovorim kada više ne namjeravam da se vidim sa nekim! Srećom još nisam završio u nekom ormaru! ( ili plakaru ! )


Review: Brent Corrigan’s In the Closet screened last night at OutFest, the Los Angeles Gay & Lesbian Film Festival, as part of a shorts program titled “Rough & Ready.” Written and directed by Jody Wheeler, the film is a short, sharp bite (no pun intended) of creepy fun. Spoiler alert: Stop here if you don’t want to know anything else. Mr. Corrigan plays a shy young pup who lures home an experienced older stud (J.T. Tepnapa) for his first bout of sex. But, natch, there are darker motivations at play and monsters lurk in the corners… Ten-minute running time heightens the pull of dread as the inevitable denouement unfolds. Corrigan is quite good as the young hottie harboring a deadly secret. He layers his character’s tentative, awkward mannerisms with an undercurrent of regret. One line reading? ”Monsters don’t live under the bed”? chilling and provides the kind of squirmy thrill fans of horror dine out on. Costar (and producer) Tepnapa’s easygoing swagger melts away during a moment of tenderness that underlines his particular appeal to Corrigan even as it seals his doom. Tech credits are solid, including saturated sound, ominous shadows and seamlessly integrated special effects.

Description: 

vlcsnap-2009-08-29-21h46m21s86 Različit od koga? Italijanska komedija koja će nas slatko zabaviti humorom zasnovan na gay stereotipima koji su u današnje vrijeme postali pravilo kada se pomene gay populacija.
Na primjer ženstveni pederi se uglavnom bave modom, umjetnošću i novinarstvom! Sva ostala zanimanja su uglavnom za nepedere ili manje ženstvene muškarce i žene.
Karikaturalna definicija savremenog pedera, zar ne!
Al šta kada se neki gay aktivnist usudi da uđe u zonu koja je rezevisana za "prave muškarce"? Sva štampa i mediji ima da bruje o tom čudu današnjeg doba! Peder koji se bavi politikom? Kakva grozota! Neko bi rekao da će takav lik ofarbati parlament u pink boju prošaranu cvjetićima! Još kada se u takvo zdanje usele frizeri, kreatori, novinari modnih i sličnih časopisa, sve počne da izgleda na naučnu fantastiku!
argentero-041-575x383 Film neide toliko daleko ali Piero koji sa ponosom govori svima kako je 100% peder nekim čudom se nađe usred političkih previranja u svom gradu! Prinuđen je da sarađuje sa Adelom, uspješnom političarkom koja je sve posvetila da što više liči na uspješnog muškog političara ( jedini način da žena uspije u muškom zanimanju). Potpuna različiti i naizgled nepomirljivi stavovi Piera i Adele iz početka dovode do sukoba, ali imperativ da moraju da usklade svoje tradicionalističke poglede na svijet sa pederskom preobrazbom novog svjetskog poretka dovode do neočekivanog obrta u kojemu njih dvoje izlaze kao savršen par koji nadopunjuje jedan drugog!
Kao vrhunac svega Pier koji ve 14 godina živi u braku sa Remom ulazi u ljubavnu i seksualnu avanturu sa Adelom! Peder koji je u trenutku poludio za pičkom! Eto desilo se, bar u ovom filmu! Pier jedva da prihvati sramotu da je postao biseksualac! Kakva uvreda za pravog i 100% pedera!
dicheccossa_400 Klasična Italijanska komedija koja će nasmijati svakoga ko imal poznaje talijanski mentalitet.
Film me je podsjetio na detalj iz mog života kada je moj "najbolji prijatelj" priznao svojoj curi da me voli na poseban način, i to nakon seksa!
Cura koja je inače bila moja dobra prijateljica je nakon minute ćutanja pitala: "A ko koga...?" Nije imao srca da joj kaže da ja i ona dijelimo istu stvar !
Sutradan je došla kod mene i rekla: "Ovo što nam se dešava je divno, pa mi smo prava trojka. Svak voli svakoga, Ja volim tebe i njega, on voli tebe i mene, a ti voliš i njega i mene! To je već bilo previše za mene, samo sam čekao da kaže kako će nam roditi bebu!

 


Author: claudette-crivelli from Italy


vlcsnap-2009-08-29-21h48m42s210 This is an unusual Italian release. It doesn't aspire to more than what it is and what it is, is rather nice. What's good about it is mostly thanks to Luca Argentero and Filippo Negri. Argentero is rapidly becoming a big star and with reason. He has a compelling presence on the screen and you can sense a lot of room for improvement, so, I'm sure that when he meets the "right" director he will become transcendental. Filippo Negri is perfect as his loving foil and their scenes together reeked of an unexpected truth. Claudia Gerini however, more restrained than usual but not restrained enough still plays to the camera for laughs. She doesn't seem to trust her own delivery or anything about her character. The script should be applauded for so many daring things but the structure is faulty to say the least. Gerini's change of heart is far too fast, for a cunning political woman, the fastness contradicted everything about the character but, let me say, I was amused and I was taken by the intentions. Not a film by one of those unbearable "auteurs" and not a mindless Chrismas comedy either. Than in itself makes it a welcome oddity.

Evo se ljeto bliži kraju, al ja i dalje radim nesmanjenim tempom. Da se ne pravdam mnogo jer sam zanemario blog, znate i sami da ljeto baš i nije neko godišnje doba kada se mnogo gledaju filmovi. Ljepše je ići na plažu sa dobrim društvom i uživati u raskoši ove današnje omladine obučene u speedo kupaće u kojima se nazire njihovo manje ili veće bogastvo!

Zato je i ovaj blog bio na čekanju na neka bolja vremena! Međutim ovih dana sam malo vršljao po netu i iznenadih se da nekih kvalitetnijih filmova baš i nije bilo u zadnja 2-3 mjeseca. Bar ne na onim sajtovima i blogovima koje redovno posjećujem.

Uz to još nisam riješio problem kako da Vam “serviram” linkove za filmove , a da mi ovi “najvjerniji” čitaoci ne zaprijete sudom, ko da ih ja uploudujem po netu!

Za sada se potrudite da sami pronađete linkove po ovim blogovima čije sam linkove postavio tu sa strane.

A za danas pogledajte Gay Top Gun! Eh da su sve vojske svijeta ovakve ratovanje bi se pretvorilo u zanimljiv vic!

Do slijedećeg čitanja ,

Vaš Orvel

As you see in last two month i didn’t post any movie on this blog. Who can watch movies during summer on the sea. Too much handsome man walking around me and make me horny all the time!

Better have good sex than watch any movie! I hoppe you  agree with me!

For today you can watch the best army on the world: Gay Top Gun!
