Movie ratings? How do you read them? Who’s do you read? What exactly do they mean?

We usually go to Rotten Tomatoes! Rotten Tomatoes doesn’t write their own review. Their method of scoring is to collect accredited critic submissions – both Gay and Straight. They then give an evaluation of their findings on a percentage scale, or as they call it their “Critics Tomatometer”. They also publish each review they’ve used in formulating their score. We’ve found the best thing to do is check out the “Tomatometer” then form your own opinion of where each review came from. We’ve also found that the Gay press can also be the biggest critic of Gay themed movies!

A quick suggestion – remember seeing a really good movie, find out what review it got here and see if you agree with the critics choices.

Director/co-writer Q. Allan Brocka has created a gorgeously textured film that not only explores the recesses of the human heart, but is charged with sex and filled with laughter. Adapted from the outstanding novel by Matthew Rettenmund, Boy Culture is the story of X (Derek Magyar), a high-end prostitute, and his two roommates Andrew (Darryl Stephens) and Joey (Jonathan Trent), who together have created a family for the 21st century. X is the head of the household who brings home the bacon and sets the tone. He has a serious crush on Andrew, who works at a video store and is waiting for the right man…and in Andrew’s opinion, a hustler is just not the right man. Joey is a 17-year-old whirlwind of trouble, but there’s really only one man he wants: X. The sexual tension between these three men is palpable. X is not your typical hustler; he has only 12 clients and concentrates on making these men happy. When one dies, there’s room for a new client and he chooses Gregory (Patrick Bauchau), a rich, lonely man who hasn’t left his home in eight years.

If, as it is said, the key to making a film work is in the casting, Brocka and his producers deserve kudos for their choices. The four leads are all superb, and extraordinarily natural in their roles. Opening your heart to another person is a risky business, one beautifully told in Boy Culture.
