Orphan Girls: Will the Real Orphan Annie Please Stand up?

Did she ever hook up with Pepper?

I was rolling around in a pile of puppies yesterday, and had an epic realization. Queers love orphans. Many of us are, or can relate to being abandoned. It isn’t surprising that we identify. Isolation, persecution, lack of power, and desperation (word to the Oxford comma) are common in queerdom. As a kid, most of my favorite movies involved she-orphans, and when […]

Captain Blood! Errol Flynn was a douchebag

How can you not become a pirate when your last name is Blood?

I originally titled this blog, Captain Blood! A Pirate Love Fest! However, on researching the lead actor, Errol Flynn, I realized I had to change directions..

Wow, I have to say I was daunted when I noticed this movie was 120 minutes long, but by the end, I was wishing it would go on and on. […]

Strait-Jacket, a Joan Crawford Masterpiece

Feminism? Not sure… but satisfying? Definitely.

Warning! This movie depicts ax murders! Warning? More like Welcome! Why stay satisfied with Faye Dunaway’s impersonation, “Christina, bring me the ax!” Instead, you can watch a movie where the actual Joan Crawford swings one around. It’s Joan playing a woman named Lucy, and Diane Baker as her daughter. Also, Lee Majors makes his first on screen performance as her murdered […]

The Incredible Shrinking Lesbian!

Tiny People and Gorillas Save The World!

The Incredible Shrinking Woman: a movie for the people.

First of all, if you didn’t know already, this movie stars the Incredible Lily Tomlin! Take a deep breath, and chant with me… Lily Tomlin, Lily Tomlin, Lily Tomlin! LilyTomlin LilyTomlin LilyTomlin LilyTomlin LilyTomlin.

Don’t you feel a universal awareness that befits you?

Amongst the many things you can learn from […]

The Delicate Smell of Flowers in the Attic!

There were a lot of covers to choose from, but this is the one. All of the children are in the evil-soaked womb of the grandmother!

IF your mother ever says, “Listen, we don’t have anywhere else to go. I just need you all to stay locked in this attic of this mansion a little while longer,” think about it carefully. Actually, don’t think about it. Grab an ornamental […]

Unconditional Love

No, this movie isn’t pre 1970, but it’s fairly unknown, and that’s a crime.

This movie has nothing to do with prison.. maybe… the prison of the closet

Welcome back to a world of queer beauty where you’re perfectly safe from all the things you have to do today. I won’t let them get you.

So, you know how icons such as Barry Manilow (who makes a cameo) […]

Dr. Seuss Goes Homofabulous!

Welcome back to the glamorous world of flaming film! For all of you with a taste for the absolutely absurd I’d like to proudly present to you…

The 5000 Fingers of Dr. T

You know what they say about people with 5,000 fingers…

 

“The 5,000 Fingers of Dr. T” is definitely a contender for the weirdest children’s film. I mean, maybe the […]

But Darling, I’m Your Auntie Mame!

Who rocks sequins during the day, has a room devoted to Marie Antoinette, and drinks gin like water without losing a single social grace (besides my friend Rachael)? Why, Auntie Mame, that’s who!
