DeRomefrom readthehorn.com – Peter de Rome Grandfather of Gay Porn is a new documentary by Ethan Reid. It chronicles the life and work of British filmmaker Peter de Rome, who began shooting erotic gay shorts in the 1960s, at a time when homosexual sex (and pornography itself) was still illegal.

What most struck me about the film was how charming de Rome is in it. He really does feel like a grandfather – the kind of grandfather I’m sure a lot of LGBTQ individuals wish we’d had growing up. Reid agreed, saying that in addition to being charming, de Rome was “educated, well-spoken, and an encyclopedia of film knowledge. Also Greek myths. He had so many interests.”

Review – The Enchanted Organ: A Porn Opera

pornoprafrom newyorkclassicalreview.com – There is never enough irreverence in opera, so works like Gordon Beeferman’s The Enchanted Organ: A Porn Opera are always welcome. Couple that with, as the title indicates, a mockery of the inherent absurdities of pornography, and integrate burlesque into the concept and staging, and most everyone is guaranteed to enjoy a happy ending.

The Enchanted Organ is still in-progress, and Beeferman and director Beth Greenberg presented selected scenes Thursday in a one-night only show at Drom in the East Village. That was the second half: the crowd, lubricated with alcohol, was stimulated by an opening burlesque show, itself with operatic overtones. Along with an amazing act by contortionist Topher Bosquet, some flashy theremin playing by Cornelius Lloyd, and a striptease from emcee and porn star Chris Harder (who, costumed as a giant hot dog, entered to the doo-wop strains of the Oscar Mayer Wiener theme), Dangrrr Doll stripped off her armor, fondled her sword and flapped her extravagant wings to the “Ride of the Valkyries,” and soprano Sarah Screams removed her corset, and much more, while singing a bel canto version of Khia’s “My Neck, My Back” (totally NSFW).

In the second half, the time and space available were sufficient for only a distorted experience of the opera—or the pressures of time and preparation away from the stage distorted the quality of some of the music. While there was not enough material to render a comprehensive judgment, there was plenty to make one look forward to the finished version.

the300from craveonline.com – Ever wonder what happened after the events of Zack Snyder’s 2006 mega-hit 300?

Well, I guess we know what happened after the events of that movie because the titular 300 all died. That’s not a spoiler. That’s history. 300, that ultimate slice of beefcake, told an ultra-stylized and not really historically accurate version of The Battle of Thermopylae (480 BC) wherein the Spartan army of only 300 men managed to hold off a Persian invasion of thousands for several days before succumbing. In the movie version, Spartan king Leonidas was played by Gerard Butler as a screaming, pep-talking frathouse leader, and his Spartans were cape-wearing hoo-rah Marines with the most chiseled abs this side of gay porn.

Review – Thor XXX: An Axel Braun Parody

February 19th, 2014 Comments off

Thor-XXX-Enchantressfrom craveonline.com – Axel Braun is perhaps a bigger comic book geek than Kevin Feige and Joss Whedon combined. Sure, the high-rollers have billions of dollars to bandy about on their comic book properties, and they can most certainly afford better special effects, slicker photography, and ostensibly better actors, but it’s Braun – with his now-extensive string of superhero porn parodies – who has more accurately captured the mood and the spirit of comic books. Despite how true-to-the-page something like The Avengers or Thor: The Dark World may claim to be on the surface, Thor XXX actually bothers to cut deep, producing spot-on costume reproductions, gleefully involving obscure characters only the biggest fans know about, and often referring to actual recorded comic book backstory, rather than inventing an ever-so-slightly altered version of it. So Thor XXX is going to be a more faithful adaptation of the Thor comic books. Only there’s more fucking.
