On Tuesday, October 28 at 7:30 PM at Tom Sheaffer’s house he will be showing the second film in a mini-series of gay films, Bridegroom.
Bridegroom
BRIDEGROOM is a documentary directed by Linda Bloodworth-Thomason that tells the emotional journey of Shane Crone and Tom Bridegroom, two young men in a loving and committed relationship that was cut short when Tom was killed in a tragic accident. The story of what happened after this accidental death – of how people without the legal protections of marriage can find themselves completely shut out and ostracized– is poignant, enraging and opens a window onto the issue of marriage equality like no speech or lecture ever will.

On May 7, 2012, the anniversary of Tom’s death, after a year of documenting his own grief, Shane decided to make a video tribute to his partner entitled “It Could Happen To You.” This film, posted on YouTube, received over 3.4 million views and has been translated into over 20 different languages.

There will be soft drinks. Feel free to bring light snacks to share.

PLEASE DO NOT PARK ON THE NEIGHBORS’ LAWNS. THANK YOU.

Tom Sheaffer 1810 NE 41st Street, Oakland Park 33308

The Adjustment Bureau

Very very mixed reviews of this movie. Seven guys showed up for this movie. Four of us gave it 4-stars while one person gave it a total thumbs down. Another said it was anti-climatic and another said it started very slowly.

Personally, I gave it 4-stars. I usually don’t like sci-fi, but I do like political thrillers and this had that element. I was able to buy into the concept of an outside force controlling our “free will” and I loved the fedoras. Matt Damon is a hunk, no two ways about that and a great actor on top of that. Emily Blount has never much impressed me as a lead actress, but I thought this role showcased her talents and gave her a charismatic character that I empathized with. She was in love with Matt Damon. The ending was pretty predictable.

Plot:
‘Black Swan’ follows the story of Nina (Natalie Portman), a ballerina in a New York City ballet company whose life, like all those in her profession, is completely consumed with dance. She lives with her retired ballerina mother Erica (Barbara Hershey) who zealously supports her daughter’s professional ambition. When artistic director Thomas Leroy (Vincent Cassel) decides to replace prima ballerina Beth MacIntyre (Winona Ryder) for the opening production of their new season, Swan Lake, Nina is his first choice. But Nina has competition: a new dancer, Lily (Mila Kunis), who impresses Leroy as well. Swan Lake requires a dancer who can play both the White Swan with innocence and grace, and the Black Swan, who represents guile and sensuality. Nina fits the White Swan role perfectly but Lily is the personification of the Black Swan. As the two young dancers expand their rivalry into a twisted friendship, Nina begins to get more in touch with her dark side with a recklessness that threatens to destroy her.

Burlesque’ reminds me of the movie ‘Cabaret’, one member of our group commented. Yes, I agree, Cabaret without all those nasty Nazis, and the underlying plot. Instead of worrying about anti-semitism, police brutality, censorship and the collapse of western civilization as we know it, Cher was behind on her mortgage payments and being foreclosed. The villian (gasp, better sit down for this) was going to tear down her burlesque club and build a 20-story office complex. And we thought Liza Minnelli and Joel Grey had problems. But plucky Iowan Christina Aguilera comes to the rescue; saves the club, and gets the cute guy.

Ok, if you’re upset that I just spoiled the ending, then don’t go see Titanic either. The ship sinks in every movie of that name.

All seriousness aside, everybody enjoyed this movie despite the lack of plot, character development or acting. The pajama strip tease of Cam Gigandet is worth the price of admisson. What a cute tush and we want some of his Famous Amos Cookies. Cher is, as always Cher. But Christina Aguilera made this movie. She’s so adorable and what a booming powerful voice.

Overall, there are some cute scenes and the soundtrack is awesome, the Plot was predictable, but again, everyone liked the movie.

We had 11 guys show up at the Gateway to see the movie and a few more went to Coral Ridge. Eight of us went out to Peter Pan afterwards to grab something to eat.

Cher on Gays; “I think gay men either love you or they don’t even notice you’re alive on the planet. And if they do love you they kind of stick with you through thick and through thin, even when you’re not popular. They recognize kindred spirits that don’t really fit into socitety, either. And of course, there’s sequins.”

Great turnout for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part I, 15 guys showed up to watch the 6th movie in this series. Good choice John.

The theatre was packed with kids. Want to thank AMC management for coming out and making a special announcement warning the kids to be quiet. That kept them to a dull roar. But it was a movie geared towards kids and so we all expected that audience and this was opening weekend.

The movie started at 7:30, or I should say the coming attractions started at 7:30. We watched a half hour of coming attractions of movies geared towards kids; Narnia, Green Hornet, Green Lantern,Behind the Green Door (oops wrong genre), Yogi Bear and my favorite title; Cowboys and Aliens, although I have no intention of seeing any of these.

The movie was 2 and 1/2 hours long and yet was only the first half of the 7th and last book. Everyone gave the movie at least an ok review, but almost all remarked that it was slow and long. The special effects were good, but it was not in 3-D, so our sense of awe has been raised by previous 3-D special effect movies.

The movie had a lot of beef-cake shots of Daniel Radcliffe in his bare chest. I think he must like showing off that lean body. Better do it now while you’re young. As he dove into a frozen lake, we all wondered about shrinkage and I personally wanted a magic wand to cast the spell ‘Extendo”. (All Harry Potter spells are a botched version of English-Latin, so if I went to Hogwarts that is the spell I would master.) He kept his shorts on so we don’t know if Harry Potter had a hairy pooter or not.

All in all it was a good movie and I will go to see the final movie of this series, but I think some of the original magic has gone. My favorite part is being with friends.

Afterwards, 10 of us went to Peter Pan for a late snack.
