Video review: Campus Crush


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.

VIDEO REVIEW: Koverboyz 2009

Another run-of-the-mill gay flick which shows several situations of supposedly hunky male actors/models in quirky locations which you could held your quick tryst which stars Xander whom i previously featured under ‘Ohhh-La-La Asian Hunks’

My verdict: do not attempt to buy. Just borrow from a friend who were cursing the high heaven why did he even bought the ‘thing’.  His hard earned money were thrown out in the gutter by buying this DVD.

‘what am I thinking?’ I guess it’s the same thing that I have uttered after I finished skipping each scenes.  It would only take you one and a half minute to finish it.


According to its short synopsis, M2M EYEBALL is a collection of vignettes psycho-sexual encounters by Pinoy males who go for the same sex eyeballs or meet-ups through the internet.  One is mischeviously making his own video scandals and posts them on the internet while another takes pleasure in collecting them.  A Bi-couple attempts a tryst and another falls to their ‘trick’.’  A project of QUEERiosity and directed by Cris Pablo.

My verdict: do not attempt to buy. or better yet…please dont even buy it. Just borrow from a friend who were cursing the high heaven why did he even bought the ‘thing’.  His hard earned money were thrown out in the gutter by buying this DVD.this video gives us the impression that all we think about is sex.  were human …yes…but we don’t breath and live for sex.

‘what am I thinking?’ I guess it’s the same thing that I have uttered after I finished skipping each scenes.  It would only take you one and a half minute to scenes.  these type of straight-to-vide0-indie-flicks ‘give gay guys a bad name’.


I just watched the film ESKANDALO last night in lieu with current events that lurks showbiz-landia and the lobby of justice system against celebrities out to ‘kill’ each other in public.  It made public last year created by Joven M Tan starring Ms. Snooky Serna, Paolo Rivero, Emilio Garcia and Andrew Schimmer. The movie itself revolves around Benny (Emilio Garcia), the only son of well known family whose father were a retired general has well kept her sexuality to a minimum level until he met Lance (Andrew Schimmer) who works as a masseur and moonlights as a hustler. Though the story line is thin and the dilemma were quite shallow (Though lance has the physique and the looks of an Adonis, his penis is too small that leads his wife to leave him and triggers insanity every time he was mocked by his customers because of his inadequate ‘offer’), the creator has been able to deliver and etched out underlying values that keeps the movie afloat including – love, honor, family duty, poverty and the life of an old gay man who lives in a box and still confused of his actions.


Thank God with its actors and supporting cast this gives the film bearable to watch. Hooray to Ms Snooky Serna on making a leap off from her comfort zone and taking the character as it is as Andrew’s overbearing sibling who sees his brother no less than a one peso coin. Though some scenes are too theatrics and some are too lengthy (including each dining scene of Benny’s family) , the film has gave enough promise that even I would recommend.

Emilio Garcia’s performance has captured a character of an older gay professor who classically displays an out and proud homo in front of other people but still hides its true self in front of thy family. . He gave a face to matured old gay guys who came out maybe round their late 20’s who is just starting to know and explore the ‘gay life’ . . So you bet my ass that they are still naïve on some details of being gay that they are scared to explore when they were still young and too old to make mistakes including falling in love with a hustler /masseur and hoping that he is the knight in shining armor that “all girls hoped for”.

I love Emilio!!! He played the part so well that I have been able to see myself in bits and pieces. As we all know, I’m no longer on my tweens and will be joining the ranks of fully pledged 30’s. I like how he handles his lines whenever he talks with his friend and colleague played by Paolo Serrano. Lines such ‘hoy bakla, itigil mo nga yung bunganga mo at baka may makarinig”.
I always love Paolo Rivero!!! The classic ‘paminta’ looking with a mouth of a thrasher which I dearly love. A lot of my friends have a foul mouth such as that – frank, honest until your teeth bleeds. Nevertheless, I still treasure them friends since they are the only people in the world who could give an honest advice if I needed some spanking. They will also be the first people who will lift me up when I’m laying at the gutter. One scene that I like so much is by the time he visits Emilio at his house after he were confined for several days. He has a bouquet of flowers as a token to Emilio. But instead of giving in a classical fashion, he throws it instead. Hahahahahaha! I don’t know, maybe it’s just me who enjoys it.



Andrew Schimmer’s debut performance as a masseur / hustler is not considerably the ‘peak of his performance’. Given the fact that he this is his debut and the actor needs more workshops, we could give him the benefit by giving all the full efforts in playing the apart. What makes him passed my scorecard is his ability to speak through his eyes. He got this set of eyes which gives him an edge off from new actors who tried the ‘sexy’ path to gain popularity. We cannot ignore the fact that he got a great body but any Juan Dela Cruz has the same package which they could offer the audience. Hell, you could even gain the fantasies of gay men even without clothes and posing in magazines but no one could beat you if you have the ability to act.

“VERDICT: watch the video.
