Rainbow Lagoon (Thai Mini Series)

The couple from the series 'Country Boys' is back with this 2 part series of 30 minute each, with a new story that continues to follow the pattern of a simple love story based on real genuine feelings, unpretentious attitude, and honesty. Just like with their other films, the budget and probably the production house had basic minimal budget. A simple story combined with basic budget tries its best to convert the emotions but sadly it fails short of anything memorable. 

The film starts with Nueng and Ten fighting for the same girl's attention who ditches them both for a third guy. Supposed to be enemies now. Nueng happens to be sitting in a restaurant owned by Ten's mother. Initially not wanting to serve him, his mother forces him to, as he is now a paying customer. The two start to talking and slowly realize that they may have more in common than they think. They begin to know each other and as they do, they become from very good friends to having feelings for one another and are actually in love. They realize that they are more like each other than unlike.

The two actors continue their streak of pure innocence and love. They don't overact, but I also felt that maybe in process of trying tome as natural as possible, they maybe underplayed their part. I would have liked to learn more and understand what were some of thee things that eventually brought them closer not just as friends but lovers. I mean, I have seen instances of two male friends being very close to one another but strictly as friends, so I struggled a little to understand what really prompted the love between these two people. The mother has little to do but I did like the fact that she was supportive of her son's decisions and love. The setting and story were natural and grounded and that does give it the realistic touch. I am all about supporting upcoming production houses, actors, directors. As a story I wish there was more to it, and I think these two actors have proved thatchy are good. Now they need a good director who can bring out that energy from these two and take them to the next level. (4.5/10)

Ultimate masturbation: Shigoki no yama (Japanese) [The Ultimate Masturbation]

I would never know what was the point behind making this film. Was it supposed to be a comedy, cos it wasn't. It wasn't even porn. It was just a silly attempt at making something absolutely senseless and ridiculous. The story, as well as direction is equally shoddy. You could laugh for having seen something so bad, but I wouldn't call that comedy. An old man runs a camp about gay masturbation. The explanation given is that gays masturbate for pleasure unlike straight men, for whom the act is seen as shame or because they can't find a woman. One day a straight man shows up and wants to join the camp for his thesis. After discussion, he is allowed in. Rules include that you can masturbate together, you can masturbate one another, but there is no fellatio or anal sex. Some students of course breaks rule. The teacher then talks about 2 forms of masturbation which gives ultimate pleasure. He shows one without touching and then refuses to talk of the other. Somehow suddenly,

The Shortest Distance is Round 3: Fallen Flowers

Continuing with the weird trilogy of "The Shortest Distance", I am so glad that finally I am done with part 3 and won't have to deal with this again in future. Thankfully, as of now the makers have not announced any further parts; which will save all of us on this earth from the embarrassment of watching this in near future. After the first 10 minutes are used in sort of recapping bits of first two parts, the story moves forward. Haruto is now starting to have feelings for Ruka, the mysterious pole dancer from second part. In a fit of rage, Ruka ends up killing the goat man and to save him and Haruto, Shibahara asks them to go underground. Meanwhile Shibahara continues the search for Seiya (the guy who had cut off Haruto's penis). It turns out Seiya is now also taking care of the original club owner from part 1. Both of them were released after they had informed Shibahara of Aoyama's secret location. Shibahara tortures Seiya's boyfriend leading to Seiya killin

Driver (Thai)

Now, finally, a decent thriller with a gay theme. My last few attempts of watching a film with this genre has been terrible, so I was a bit nervous about this one. Actually to be honest, I did not even know that this was thriller when I started watching but pretty soon, it was obvious. For some reason, one thing that caught my attention in this film was the background music. Somehow it was just really good and perfect and went very very well with the film. I usually don’t even pay attention to such things but this was good. Businessman Tae has not returned from his Korea trip and this worries his wife Kade. She asks her police friend, Tum , to help her out but he advises her to wait for a few more days, because some work emergency may have had come up. But Kade is restless and can’t wait any longer so she asks her husband’s driver Mac to take her to his office to see if she can find something. There she finds an electricity bill for the house she never knows he had. Kade makes Mac
