My Keychain (Thai Mini-Series)

This 4 part mini-series lasting about 45 minutes isa very amateurish attempt at making a BL drama. The story hardly exists, which is made worse by a very cheesy high school romance. I almost felt guilt to watch these younger than high school looking boys, in their contrived romance. Even though, ,the probable target audience of this show is pre teens, the plot of full of flaws, and I can't see why anyone would like this.

Tin is a young ordinary student walking home from school. One day, he encounters Na, a student from another school, who bumps into Tin, because of which the keychains of their bags get tangled together. Reluctantly, Na forfeited his bag to the stranger he had just met. They make arrangements to meet up again once their schoolbags are separated. In their next meeting, Nan accidentally grabs the wrong bag. This mistake gives the characters another opportunity to communicate and interact. Na seems friendly during their exchanges, even though Tin is reluctant to get closer to him. As they chat after school, Tin almost falls down the stairs out of carelessness. Na tries rescuing him, but he ends up falling down and hurting himself in the process. He has an injured leg as a result. Tin feels terrible about what happened to Na. He starts paying more attention and taking care of the injured student. As they spend time together, feelings develop between the pair. However, their budding relationship faces interference from other friends, classmates, and bullies.

The adolescent romance between two leads feels very awkward, which, I mean, you would expect of these silly teenagers with their iffy interactions. The main characters have a barebones relationship and hardly know each other in a meaningful capacity. The leads are strictly ok and do what they are asked of but sometimes their expressions don't match the plot line and that is a very glaring fault of the director. This mini series has absolutely zero memorable scene and you can't help but get confused and frustrated by this ridiculous storyline and even a weirder title. Just ignore. (1/10)

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
