    Pride Month 2021 Film #8 🏳️‍🌈✨

    “Suddenly, I felt like going home.”

    I don't know, I don't know. I really wanted to love this, especially after last year when I released my 15 Favorites—Queer Cinema 🏳️‍🌈✨ list, someone on Twitter replied there was a "disturbing lack of Happy Together."

    After that, in no small part, because I'm a Virgo who can't let criticism go, I've been trying to find a way to watch this, even my beloved Netflix DVD let…

    “You said that God put us together for a reason.” 

    I’m sorry, but Lili Taylor acted her ass off in this movie. I wish she were given more opportunities.

    Vera Farmiga and Patrick Wilson are beautiful and make a perfect horror “it” couple.

    A frightful score, terrific set design and so, so many good shots. Peak James Wan. Peak.

    And it still manages some scares despite repeated watches.

    An intelligent, well-made haunted house horror, my favorite type of horror 😌

    You have to understand that I lived and breathed Titanic mania as a baby gay in elementary school.

    I remember telling a classmate at the time, "my favorite actor is the boy from Titanic and my favorite actress is the girl from Titanic" (I…

    “Even if I fail, I have to finish what I started.”

    Wow. What a gorgeous, gorgeous film. Both aesthetically and emotionally.

    I remember seeing Steven Yeun in the second episode of The Walking Dead, he was instantly endearing and lovable back then as Glenn Rhee. Of course, going on to become a fan-favorite and one of the most recognizable actors from that series. This is to say, I remember watching that first season live and thinking this guy is good,…
