i just watched a whole indie gay film over the tube. CAMPUS CRUSH – its about an all-boys school that delivers a gay guys journey to gay-hood. Most likely, its your average glee-esque out take of Kurt Hummel and David Karofsky. But this time, its the WORST version.
I’m not saying that the indie film is any good – it’s NO GOOD AT ALL so don’t you ever buy it in DVD. Actually, i vomited a few times due to bad acting. I cant describe how horrified i am and squeal each time they deliver their lines. I think its like pulling teeth … hard and painful. But anyway i do support the “arts and the gay community” so i opted to finish it anyway. I don’t agree on some scenes and how they placed a spotlight in gay’s life. Though, bits and pieces are likely true but most of the plot were exaggerated and completely far from the truth.
I do regret the fact that they tried to highlight the gay community as “sex-starved money-centered” people who thinks about sex almost every minute. Its NOT how we roll… we also have lives to tend and bills to pay so we cannot just give out i-phone everyday like a piece of candy. Come on… the film is shot entirely in P.U.P. The building are torn and the C.R. are freakin awful. I hope they opted for a better location but i guess due to budget constraint – that will do. If they want an all boys school with a pool, why dont they shoot it on several locations instead. I bet these guys don’t know how to use an I-phone nor own one. I dont even have one but ‘damn it’… i saved my pesos for a samsung galaxy for several months before i opted to rush and buy it.
But i do give ‘two snaps’ to the writers. Bongga yung eksena kung saan pinakita ng flamboyant gay character (the name i forgot) yung pictures niya habang nasa isang meeting gay club. Pinakita niya yung picture niya with the guy whom his best friend is dating with – shocking (somehow) dahil it was him and that guy in a party while canoodling with each other. Horrifying truth!
Its not that it happened to me since my bestfriend from time in memorial may have tried to pull a rag underneath me but how those lines may have struck a string or two. Ang kaibigan, you accept him no matter what … pokpok man siya oh isa sa pinaka-moody na tao sa mundo. You accept him no matter what and you fight for him until you can.
