The Top 114 Groovy Gay Movies to Watch in 2014

Great list, Marc! I loved a good portion of this film.

I love "Maybe, Maybe Not," a film largely forgotten by filmgoers. I don't think it is even available for purchase anymore (sad).

Thanks for the trip down the yellow brick road.

Love your lists and the fact that you embed trailers. Great help in picking movies.

"Querelle" is strange. I'm glad to see "Three Day Weekend" wasn't on the list (a waste of time) but "Trick" is (another waste of time). "Rocky Horror Show" and "La cage a folles" are always fun!

All my favorites made the list!

Very comprehensive Marc! I was surprised that I had seen all but about a dozen of these and queued up the ones that I haven't that are available on Netflix. Thanks!

Taxi Zum Klo and Salo Sade should have been in this list

Malcolm Drain said...

Hello..you really should add 'Weekend' to your list....brilliant film starring Tom Cullen and Chris New.

Hey, Doug, I think you're right that Maybe, Maybe Not is not available on DVD - but it should be!

Alan, Trick is one of my favorite gay films. To each their own.

Anonymous, thanks for the movie recommendations - maybe they'll show up on my next list.

And, Malcolm, Weekend is #104 on my list.
