The Moment: Since (Thai Mini-Series)

The sequel to the original series follows Bay and Mok and their new love during their beachside vacation. In this five 15-minute each series, the couple is trying to spend sometime together but something keeps interrupting them. Sadly, there is nothing in the name of story here in the show. Literally as the title suggest, it feels just like watching moments of a newly couple trying to confess their feelings and nurturing them.

As Bay's birthday approaches, the duo decide to go to beachside resort of holiday. Tok is hoping that he will use this opportunity to take their love further. Unfortunately, Bay's boss Boston, who has a secret crush on him, shows up at the same resort with another friend Jimmy. Now Tok has competition not just from Boston but also from jimmy who shows more than a keen interest in Bay and is not shy from making it obvious. Mok also feels inferior to the two men, since Boston has an accomplished reputation and Jimmy is smoking hot with six-pack abs. Despite constant interruptions from the two uninvited guests, the duo do manage to spend sometime together finally leading to that first kiss. Initially shy, they both slowly overcome their hesitation, start to get comfortable with one another and maybe this is indeed a start of a beautiful relationship.

My first thoughts after finishing the show was what was this made? And mostly because there is nothing here in the name of story. It sadly exists. There is one full episode of the two men drinking men, walking around and just feeling Lovey-dovey. The scenes were so slow. I understand to emphasize on love and growing fondness and what not, but I do feel that the way these two supposedly grown boys were behaving was more like a 15 year old teenage would behave. I feel some of these BL shows need to come out of the cute romantic filmy fully stuff and be more realistic and natural. Many events in the show are just happening and really add nothing to the story, which as I mentioned earlier hardly exists. The only one good thing about this show was the mouth watering hot six pack abs of Jimmy. The moment he takes off his shirt, I was not expecting what I saw and Mok's expressions at that moment are priceless. The acting was alright, the guys are cute but please give us something more. I guess I am too old for this over the top romantic stuff which is so romanticized in people's fantasy and reality is something so different. This mini series was worthy of just a short film, a very very short film. (4/10)

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
