This Weekend’s VOD Favorites

We’re always working to expand selection of new and old gay-themed movies available for your viewing pleasure. Here’s just five of our current favorites that you may have missed – ALL available to watch INSTANTLY!

 

Benjamin
British comedian Simon Amstell wrote and directed this charmingly offbeat gay romantic comedy about a filmmaker juggling the excitement of his upcoming film premiere with the fear and awkwardness of a burgeoning romance. Always ready with a self-defensive quip, indie film director Benjamin (Colin Morgan) nervously prepares for the premiere of his sophomore feature when he meets and falls for hard for Noah (Phenix Brossard), a young French musician. Will Benjamin’s insecurities and anxieties get in the way of success and happiness? Will his film be a critics-savaging disaster and he, a one-hit wonder? Benjamin is a charming, laugh-out-loud look at one man’s land mined road to success and love.

 

The Last Straight Man
Lewis (Mark Cirillo) is a closeted gay man throwing a bachelor party for his straight best friend and secret crush, Cooper (Scott Sell). Unexpectedly, the two men end up in bed together during the night. After this initial uncontrollable urge of drunken sex together, the two men decide to meet in the same hotel suite on the same night each year to hook up – and catch up. Written and directed by Mark Bessenger (Bite Marks, Confessions), The Last Straight Man is a sexy and bittersweet exploration of a secret relationship as it evolves over the course of twelve years. We see four additional nights that depict how these two men grow and how their friendship – and deep affection – changes.

 

Between Love & Goodbye
Kyle and Marcel (Simon Miller and Justin Tensen) fell deeply in love at first sight. Marcel, who is from France, marries his lesbian friend Sarah (Jane Elliott) so that he can stay in the United States with Kyle. Enter Kyle’s sister, April (Rob Harmon), a former prostitute who needs a place to crash. Taking a quick disliking to Marcel, April methodically drips poison into their happiness. But where Marcel sees a conniving woman with a not-so-hidden agenda, Kyle only sees his sister in need. The perfect couple soon falls headlong into possessiveness, jealousy and rage – trapped in the tangled emotions found in that space between love and goodbye. Can their love survive the pressure?

 

Seek
Evan (Adrian Shepherd-Gawinski) is a hot, young, gay newspaper writer who has just recently had his heart broken. Attempting to shake off his melancholy, he takes on an assignment profiling Hunter (Ryan Fisher), an alluring up-and-coming young gay club promoter. Around the guys are a host of other twenty-something urbanites, all longing for the same thing – approval. Whether it’s by the in-crowd, the hottie across the bar or in the industry in which they work, all of them are striving for something greater, failing to appreciate the beauty of what they already have. Written and directed by Eric Henry, Seek explores fresh territory in gay cinema – and is all the more tender and heart-wrenching for it.

 

Body Electric
The summer is coming and Elias (Kelner Macêdo) has been dreaming of the sea a lot. In his daily life, he’s a bit “at sea” as well. In the garment factory where he works, his responsibilities seem to be consistently increasing. He’s drowning in responsibilities. After one more night working overtime, Elias and his employees decide to go out and have some beer together. Though he knows it’s not advisable to mix his work life and his social life, this night proves to be exactly what Elias needs. Suddenly, new encounters and desires open up to his horizons. Though it is light on plot, Body Electric is a smart, warmhearted character study about breaking free from expectations and finding your place in the world.

Eating Out 2: Sloppy Seconds

2006, United States

Boasting a cast of hunks, Eating Out 2: Sloppy Seconds is packed with more sexy, irreverent fun. Returning to head up the cast are gay “American Idol” finalist Jim Verraros as Kyle and Emily Brooke Hands as Gwen. New to the cast, along with an array of studs, is John Waters veteran Mink Stole in a hilarious turn as Kyle’s mom, Helen. When Kyle and Marc (Brett Chuckerman) have a breakup that doesn’t quite feel final, Marc goes off in search of other prey while Gwen, Kyle and Tiffany (Rebekah Kochan) head to art class, where Troy (Marco Dapper) will model nude. As the trio lusts after Troy, they can’t quite figure out who he likes: boys or girls? Troy and Kyle leave class together and head off across campus where they bump into Jacob (Scott Vickaryous) and his ex-gay group, “Coming In”. Kyle, who is ultra-gay without a butch bone in his body, decides to pretend he’s an ex-gay to see if he can get into mixed-up Troy’s pants. There’s lots of room for comic craziness as the charade heats up. Funnier and wackier than the first edition, Eating Out 2: Sloppy Seconds is a total farce, without any intent to educate or illuminate any serious topics. Enjoy!
