The 10 Year Plan is a gay rom-com by director J. C. Calciano, starring Jack Turner and Michael Adam Hamilton. I watched it with a friend because we wanted something fun, light, and gay, and I am not exaggerating when I say that we needed recovery time after all the cuteness. This movie is literally the most adorable shit ever.
Director: J. C. Calciano
Genre: Romantic comedy

Look what I’m bringing back! The last time I posted a review for Queer Movie Friday was in August, which feels like a million years ago. Today I’m talking about the wonderful movie Boys don’t cry, which was released in 1999 and directed by Kimberly Peirce. It focuses on transgender issues and is based on the real story of Brandon Teena, a trans guy who was raped and murdered in 1993. (So, obviously, trigger warnings for that!)
Director: Kimberly Peirce
Genre: Biography, drama
Average rating: 7.6/10

I’m gonna be completely honest with you guys: the only reason I watched this is that it stars Daniel Radcliffe and Dane DeHaan. Radcliffe is (obviously) the guy who played Harry Potter, and Dane DeHaan is one of the most attractive people I’ve ever seen, so, yeah. Gay Harry plus really cute other guy? Sign me up.
The movie follows poet and literature student Allen Ginsberg in the 40s as he attends university and meets the fascinating and attractive Lucien Carr. He promptly falls for him and gets dragged into a lot of trouble, including a mysterious murder.
Director: John Krokidas
Genre: biography, drama, romance
Average rating: 6.5/10

I am so tired, you guys. I stayed over at a friend’s and then had to drive all the way home, and driving is still really exhausting for me, since I got my licence only ten days ago. So I slept all day, and now I am in one of those I-just-woke-up-from-a-nap moods, and honestly all I wanna do is go back to sleep.
But I have a blog that I’ve worked on a lot in the past months, and the last thing I want is for it to become another one of my abandoned projects, so here I am, blogging! The movie I am reviewing today is not the one I had planned originally – I wanted to talk about a very different film, but then my mom randomly said she wanted to watch Philadelphia, and I got excited because it seemed like the perfect way to combine family-time and blogging-research.
Philadelphia is a movie from the 90s, about a gay man who is fired from his law firm for having AIDS.
Director: Jonathan Demme
Average rating: 7.7/10
