Gay themed summer movies

Gay KissWith summer movie blockbuster commercials now in heavy rotation during every television ad break, I thought I’d give a shout out to some gay themed movies that you may want to check out this summer.  If any of these films catch your attention, contact your local indie theater to see if they plan on showing the film this summer.

Wild Horses opens June 5.  Written and directed by Robert Duvall the film also stars James Franco and Josh Hartnett, and is about a 15-year-old missing-persons case with clues that point to a powerful rancher (played by Robert Duvall), who is grappling with the sudden return of his estranged son (played by James Franco), whom he threw out 15 years ago because he was gay.

Do I Sound Gay? is a documentary David Thorpe created that opens July 10th, which addresses how many gay men grapple with how they sound. Commenters include David Sedaris, George Takei, Margaret Cho and Tim Gunn.

Tom at the Farm (“Tom à la Ferme”) is a psychological thriller from Canada that comes to theaters in the US August 7th.

Saturday night video: Vacation movie trailer

I rarely venture to the movies but this might bring me to the movie theater. I loved the National Lampoon Vacation movies from the 1980s.  I’m sure many of you may have seen this teaser for the new Vacation movie that opens on July 29th.

Rusty Griswold (now a grown man) takes his family on a road trip to “Walley World” in order to spice things up with his wife and reconnect with his sons, all while reminiscing about his childhood memories from when his Dad took him to  visit Wally World.  Check out Chris Hemsworth towards the end of the video. It won’t be his rock hard abs that will have you laughing out loud.
