Can This Be Love? (Filipino Series)

The synopsis says "A romantic comedy series about a young catechist named Caloy and an old transgender named Dora making their way in finding what true love means. Find out how they answered the question, Can This be Love?" I have seen so many bad gay movies/series including Asian BL ones that my skin has become so thick, so when I see another absolute trash, at this point, I can't do anything but just laughs it off. This 7 part, 20 minute each series is as trashy and bad and transphobic as it can get.

A young boy Caloy has an interesting love-hate relationship with old trans woman Mamma Dora. The duo along with another friend go to a 'Can It Be Love' resort to help them sell resort since Dora is an agent. The owner, another young boy, shamelessly flirts with Mamma Dora. There are a few other random boys working, living near resort and then another trans female character, a friend of owner, comes to mix it all up while these people try to find love.

I dare you all to watch all 7 episodes of this show without fast forwarding this show. It is sooo bad, that its hard to express in words how annoying and downright disgusting this is. In the very first episode, we see Dora tasting a boy's puke. Yuck!! And the series just gets bad to worse. How is this comedy, is something that's beyond me. Every single aspect of the show, from writing to acting to editing to direction is outright pathetic and embarrassing. How can anyone, in their right mind, would want to be associated with this crap. I am so mad at myself (again!) that I wasted my time on other shitty production. Don't let the colorful poster fool you. Run away form this one. (0/10)

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

One Summer Night (Korean)

I really wanted to like this film but for non native speakers, these movie leaves a lot to be understood and the way scenes were unfolding in front of me, I wasn't sure many times what was really going on. The story had potential button getting any back story on any of the characters limited my ability to empathize with any of these actors. Film starts with two North Korea military guys Yong Joon and Jae Sung having sex and they are caught red handed and they run. Three years later we see Yong Joon in Seoul leading a very mundane and poor life. He has a boyfriend Tae-Kyu, who is a weird guy. He is carefree, doesn't do any work and is completely emotional and financially dependent on Young Joon. In fact, even Yong Joon will go to any lengths to protect him , fend for him and taking care of him to the extent of even taking up prostitution. Suddenly one day Jae Sung appears in their life again. His motivation is not clear but it is obvious he wants Yong Joon back in his life, who

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,
