Happy Pride Month! With parades and festivals looming, you can do a lot more if you want to celebrate at home – just watch these weird shows and movies! Here are some of the ones I recommend:
First Kill (Netflix)
Look, I don’t care if there are a lot of shows and movies about vampires these days. We have a show of gay vampire and vampire hunter romance and it’s glorious.
“The first kill”- Based on a short story by Victoria Schwab of the same name – about Juliet (Sarah Catherine Hook), a vampire at the age when she wanted to kill her first human. But unfortunately for her, she set her sights on Caliop (Imani Lewis), which would be an easy target – if she weren’t a vampire hunter. To put it bluntly, they get emotional while trying to kill each other.
If that sounds like a little clich आणि and trit to you, then so be it, but weird women like me have never really grown up. We have thousands of clichs straight romance. “First Kill” is not a problem for a strange audience.
Our flag is Death (HBO Max)
Vampires and pirates? Strange content is coming in all genres nowadays. “Our flag is death“It simply came to our notice then Renewal for the second season After a shower of love for the first season, and for good reason – the show is fun and happy.
It follows Stade Bonnet (Rice Darby) who abandons his comfortable life as a member of the British Gentlemen and becomes a pirate, albeit a terrible one. Bonnet and his crew run into Edward Teach (the infamous Blackbird) who offers to help them get better at the craft. The main romance is between Bonnet and Teach, but there are other weird characters and relationships throughout the show. It’s a lot of fun and self-indulgence and a great looking watch before Season 2 comes out.
Alice Osman’s hilarious comic “Heartstopper”Was adapted into the original Netflix series this year, and the show manages to retain its original appeal.
This is the story of a British arrival between Charlie Spring (Joe Lock) and Nick Nelson (Kit Connor) at the start of the new school year. Charlie wasn’t sure if Nick wanted to be friends or something else, but the two stopped. Other members of the recurring cast include Charlie’s friends Tao (William Gao), Elle (Yasmin Finney) and Isaac (Toby Donovan) who are worried about his re-injury.
The show has seemed a bit unfocused in recent episodes, but it’s a very enjoyable watch if you want to calm your heart for a few hours after a long summer day.
Everyone is talking about Jamie (Amazon Prime)
“Everyone is talking about JamieIt is adapted from a stage play of the same name based on the life of Jamie New (Max Harwood), a gay boy growing up in South Yorkshire who wanted to be a drag queen.
With such a setup, and this is a musical comedy film, you wouldn’t be surprised to know that this film is visual. Her costumes and performances are eye-catching and showy, with a touching story about accepting herself and the people around her. In particular, Jamie’s mother is Margaret (Sarah Lancashire) who wants her son to be happy but struggles to support him as a single mother.
It’s heartfelt, it’s funny, it will let you hum and it’s worth watching.
The Prom (Netflix)
What is this Another music? Yes i haveProm, ”Which aired on Netflix in 2020. Stay with me because the movie scene feels worse than a movie or stage show on paper.
“The Prom” follows a group of washed-out Broadway artists who go to a small town in Indiana to get some positive press coverage by helping Emma (Joe Ellen Pelman) get a chance to go to Prom with her friend against her will. Of her homphobic community. There are many story lines that are woven together, but they all come together in a story of finding oneself and not trying to get the attention of others, which is very sweet.
Stage shows and movies are Broadway love letters and are filled with references that will surely excite any music theater fan and I can’t recommend it enough.
