Queerty’s Weekly Entertainment Guide: James Dean, Dan Savage And “Cruising”



  Cruising Arguably the most controversial gay-themed movie ever made, Cruising stars Al Pacino as a jittery cop who infiltrates New York’s S/M scene to investigate a series of unsettling gay murders. Director William Friedkin’s 1980 mystery, which inspired James Franco‘s recent Interior. Leather Bar., remains one of cinema’s most unfairly-maligned thrillers. It’s again available on DVD after a lengthy moratorium. Watch the trailer below.
MM-CD-Cvr HR-lo Where It All Began, Matthew Morrison The Glee star and Broadway vet has released his latest album, a dazzling collection of standards that originated on the Great White Way. A portion of proceeds from the pre-order of the album will go to the Human Rights Campaign. Watch Morrison’s video for “It Don’t Mean a Thing” below.
quadron_2013_1379_re1_lo Avalanche, Quadron It’s all about Coco O. As the Danish duo’s first U.S. single “Hey Love” attests, few vocalists can put across bouncy electronic soul like the Quadron singer, who was recently a stand-out on The Great Gatsby soundtrack. The band’s album Avalanche will be available June 4 on iTunes. Watch their video for “Hey Love” below.
245124C1_2D Identity Thief Jason Bateman and the fearless Melissa McCarthy are such reliable comic actors they frequently energize this uneven romp about a straight-laced exec who becomes the victim of a credit card scam. Now on DVD/Blu-ray.
51x4gCITpHL._SY300_ Kylie Fashion For the past quarter century (!) Kylie Minogue’s cheeky fashion sensibility has been an integral part of her appeal as a global icon. The singer has now co-written (with William Barker) a glossy coffee table tome filled with her own exclusive archival images. As further proof of her fashion bona fides, the foreword was penned by Jean Paul Gaultier.

8934009 Joshua Tree 1951: A Portrait of James Dean Director Matthew Mishory’s lush, mostly black-and-white take on the pre-fame years of James Dean (portrayed with the right mix of dewy naïveté and cunning by James Preston) is filled with evocative, dreamlike imagery and no punches are pulled when depicting the screen legend’s randy bisexuality. Now available on DVD. Watch the film’s trailer below.


I Do

Green card immigration and marriage equality are merged in this 2012 festival hit, which gets a limited theatrical release today. Watch a clip from out director Glenn Gaylord’s gentle rom-com, which stars Jamie Lynn Sigler and Maurice Compte, below.

    I Do. Is a horrifyingly dull movie. It’s an hour and a half of nothing. Pacing…horrible. Actors…acceptable.
    Aside from the often shirtless lead, there isn’t much of a reason to watch this film.
