  1. To use a forum metaphor, I had to catch a train.

  2. I have been following this web series since 2012 or 2013... It is QUITE wholesome at times but matures quite a lot and I ended up crying my eyes out at the finale (I am not a crier).

    It is worth the pay off... but I am warning you that it is very ... innocent?

  3. Is it good?
  4. So here is your 2018 updated list of every queer(ish) title mentioned so far. I can't vouch for the quality or even queerness of them all but they have all at least been mentioned in this thread.

  5. Law of Desire is fucking hot. Always here for Antonio Banderas mano e mano-ing it up.
  6. I mean, I assume Call Me by Your Name isn't on here because it's so obvious.
  7. DOH!

    Yeah it's so obvious I didn't even check.
    londonrain and andru like this.
  8. I watched Call Me blabla today.

    Loved it, duh.

    And that ending with the closeup while the credits rolled... damn.
  9. The moment my emotions went from a respectable welling of tears to complete and total sobbing.

  10. American hunties really should watch My Beautiful Launderette. It's tender like Call Me By Your Name.

    And Daniel Day Lewis really just goes for it. Fucking hot beast.
    londonrain, Conan and andru like this.
  11. Torka aldrig tårar utan handskar / Don't Ever Wipe Tears Without Gloves really is terrific. Jonas Gardell who wrote both the script and the books that the series is based on has also written another series series called De Halvt Dolda. It's very easy to find online with subtitles. I don't know how well translated it is, but I highly recommend it. It's not as gay focused as Don't Ever Wipe Tears Without Gloves, but it's damn good TV.
    WowWowWowWow and phoenix123 like this.
  12. I watched God's Own Country a few weeks ago and it's like the anti-Call Me by Your Name. It just feels so barren and harsh where CMBYN feels so lush and erotic but still, it's so beautiful and romantic when it wants to be. And by God, the Romanian guy is drop dead gorgeous. Recommended.
  13. I really enjoyed God's Own Country too, despite the lead actually being a bit of a git (purhaps understandably), and yes, the Romanian guy! Swoons!

  14. Bedrooms & Hallways (1998) deserves a place on that list.
  15. This is amazing! So many to catch up on!

    I would add "Heartstone" (2016) from Iceland, i think it was mentioned a few pages back, but its an fantastic movie.

  18. I watched both The Pass & Soft Lad today and enjoyed both.

  19. Very excited for this. If I'm being honest, visually it looks a bit CW but I am elated there will be a mainstream teen movie about a gay person. I hope it's a massive success.

  20. Same here. To be honest, I'm expecting it to be cute but not a masterpiece, but it's great to see such a mainstream-style movie about a gay kid. Kind of like how a lot of the current string of female-fronted crude humor comedies can vary wildly in quality, but all the same, they're normalizing the idea of female-led movies in a genre that's typically dominated by males.
