Since the 84th Annual Academy Awards takes place this weekend (Sunday, 02/26/12) I decided to choose some Oscar winning films that you can enjoy right now on Netflix Streaming.


If you are more of a watcher than a reader and/or just want to watch me fangirl out over some of these flicks you can watch me also explaining this post above, or you can just skip that and read through.

Brokeback Mountain (1995) (Available Until 12/16/14)

Ang Lee, Heath Ledger & Jake Gyllenhaal on the set of Brokeback Mountain


(Best Director-Ang Lee, Best Adapted Screenplay-Larry McMurtry & Diana Ossana, Best Original Score-Gustavo Santaolalla)

Brokeback Mountain is the story of two cowboys who fall in love but can’t be together except during a brief time when they are working alone on a mountain. The film stars the late Heath Ledger, Jake Gyllenhaal, Michelle Williams, Anne Hathaway and Randy Quaid.

What Dreams May Come (1998) (Available Until 01/01/14)

Robin Williams in What Dreams May Come


(Best Visual Effects-Joel Hynek, Nicholas Brooks, Stuart Robertson & Kevin Scott Mack )

Robin Williams and Cuba Gooding, Jr. and Annabella Sciorra star in a movie about a man who tries to find his wife in the afterlife after he dies. The problem is that while he was meant to reside in heaven she is damned to hell.

Breakfast at Tiffany’s (1961) (Available Until 10/01/13)

Breakfast at Tiffany's

Breakfast at Tiffany's


(Best Original Song-Moon River by Henry Mancini & Johnny Mercer, Best Score-Henry Mancini)

Audrey Hepburn and George Peppard star in this movie that was loosely based on the book by Truman Capote. Hepburn is a wannabe socialite who meets a writer when he moves into her apartment building.

The Graduate (1967) (Available Until 03/01/13)

Dustin Hoffman & Mike Nichols on the set of The Graduate


(Best Director-Mike Nichols)

I finally watched all of The Graduate last year when I was able to see it as part of a classic film series on the big screen. It’s quite disconcerting. Dustin Hoffman is a guy who’s right out of college and drifting. So he spends his summer drinking and sexing up Mrs. Robinson (Anne Bancroft). Then he decides that he’s in love with her daughter. In homages to the movie Hoffman is usually portrayed as a sympathetic character but he actually seems totally sociopathic.

Good Will Hunting (1997) (Available Until 01/01/13)

Robin Williams & Matt Damon in Good Will Hunting


(Best Actor in a Supporting Role-Robin Williams, Best Screenplay Written Directly for the Screen-Matt Damon & Ben Affleck)


Matt Damon and Ben Affleck made their splash into hollywood when they wrote and starred in this Gus Van Sant flick. Affleck is a janitor at a college who is actually a genius. When he starts attending the college himself he butts heads with the yuppies. Robin Williams, Minnie Driver and Stellan Skarsgard costar.

Girl, Interrupted (1999) (Available Until 11/01/12)

Angelina Jolie in Girl, Interrupted


(Best Actress in a Supporting Role-Angelina Jolie)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yKpibWkTBGg

This is the fantastic adaptation of the Susanna Kaysen novel (which I also recommend) about a depressed young woman. She ends up in a mental hospital during the interim between high school and college. The film stars Winona Ryder, Angelina Jolie, Brittany Murphy and Jared Leto. There’s no doubt that Jolie is great in this but I always felt like it must have sucked that the press on her performance overshadowed Ryder’s leading role. Ryder’s character is basically just misunderstood and being treated in a sexist manner (though she’s officially diagnosed with borderline personality disorder) while Jolie’s character is completely out there.

Boys Don’t Cry (1999) (Available Until 08/01/12)

Hilary Swank & Chloe Sevigny in Boys Don't Cry


(Best Actress-Hilary Swank, Best Actress in a Supporting Role-Chloe Sevigny)

Boys Don’t Cry is based on the true story of Brandon Teena (Hilary Swank) who was a trans man (a person who is born female but gender identifies as a man) who falls in love with the pretty Lana (Chloe Sevigny) and the hate crime that follows. Peter Sarsgaard and Brendan Sexton costar.

Mrs. Doubtfire (1993) (Available Until 07/01/12)

Robin Williams in Mrs. Doubtfire


(Best Makeup-Greg Cannom, Ve Neill & Yolanda Toussieng)

I do believe that Mrs. Doubtfire was the first video tape that I ever begged for (and received!) as a birthday gift. Robin Williams (how is he in this post so much anyway?) is a man whose wife (Sally Field) is divorcing him. He’s a struggling actor who is desperate for both a steady job and a way to see his children more often. Of course the best idea is to dress as an elderly woman and become their maid, duh! I rewatched this again not long ago and it’s still great. Pierce Brosnan and Harvey Fierstein costar.

Dirty Dancing (1987) (Available Until 07/01/12)

Jennifer Grey & Patrick Swayze in Dirty Dancing

Franke Previte


(Best Original Song-(I’ve Had) The Time of My Life-Franke Previte, John DeNicola & Donald Markowitz)

I wish that I could be nonchalant and say that I don’t even like Dirty Dancing but alas, no, not true at all, I have one of the special edition DVDs and eveything. The late Patrick Swayze stars as the older dance instructor that teen Jennifer Grey falls for, while developing her dirty dancing skills.

The Fly (1986) (Available Until 06/01/12)

Chris Walas


(Best Makeup-Chris Walas & Stephan Dupuis)

This David Cronenberg horror film stars ex-married duo Jeff Goldblum and Geena Davis. It’s about a scientist who accidentally merges his body with a fly.

Misery (1990) (Available Until 05/01/12)

Kathy Bates in Misery


(Best Actress-Kathy Bates)

Kathy Bates stars in this horror movie based on a Stephen King book. She’s an obsessive fan who snaps when her favorite author (James Caan) has stopped writing his huge hit book series that she loves. So she kidnaps and cripples him to force him to write a new book in the series. Lauren Bacall costars as his literary agent.

All About Eve (1950) (Available Until 04/01/12)

Anne Baxter in All About Eve


(Best Picture, Best Actress in a Leading Role-Anne Baxter, Best Actor in a Supporting Role-George Sanders, Best Director-Joseph L. Mankiewicz, Best Costume Design-Edith Head, Charles Le Maire, Best Screenplay, Best Sound Recording)

This drama stars Bette Davis, Anne Baxter, George Sanders, Celeste Holm and Marilyn Monroe. It’s about an aging actress and a young actress who usurps her popularity.

The Age of Innocence (1993) (Available Until 04/01/12)

Michelle Pfeiffer in The Age of Innocence

Gabriella Pescucci


(Best Costume Design-Gabriella Pescucci)

This is a such a good costume drama. Michelle Pfeiffer is fantastic as woman who is considered to be scandalous because she’s left her husband. Daniel Day Lewis starts seeing her on the side despite being engaged to the adorable young Winona Ryder.

Death Becomes Her (1992) (Not Currently Available)

Meryl Streep in Death Becomes Her

Ken Ralston, Doug Chiang, Douglas Smythe & Tom Woodruff Jr.


(Best Visual Effects-Ken Ralston, Doug Chiang, Douglas Smythe & Tom Woodruff Jr.)

Death Becomes Her is definitely a favorite of mine. The stunning Goldie Hawn and Meryl Streep star as vanity obsessed women who fight over Bruce Willis. They will do anything to stay young looking, even take a magical potion from Isabella Rossellini. It’s awesome that this movie won for visual effects because they still stand up today.

Beetlejuice (1988) (Not Currently Available)

Alec Baldwin in Beetlejuice

Michael Keaton & Steve LaPorte on the set of Beetlejuice



(Best Makeup-Ve Neill, Steve LaPorte & Robert Short)

Yes, Beetlejuice! A married couple (Geena Davis and an adorabley young/faux nerdy Alec Baldwin) die and discover that they are still trapped in their home. When some annoying yuppies (Jeffrey Jones and Catherine O’Hara) and their gothy teen daughter (Winona Ryder) move in they hire a bio-exorcist to scare them away. They don’t realize that this guy, Betelgeuse, (Michael Keaton) is worse. You don’t know how cool I was when I played a copy of this PG masterpiece at my 6th birthday party.

Toy Story 3 (2010) (Not Currently Available)

Tom Hanks & Lee Unkrich


(Best Animated Feature Film of the Year-Lee Unkrich, Best Original Song-We Belong Together by Randy Newman)

Toy Story 3 is cry worthy even for adults. When Andy grows up his favorite toys, Woody and Buzz, end up accidentally being thrown out. They arrive at a daycare center with some scary, stern toys and then must escape.

The English Patient (1996) (Not Currently Available)

Ralph Fiennes & Kristin Scott Thomas in The English Patient

(Best Picture-Saul Zaentz, Best Director-Anthony Minghella, Best Actor-Ralph Fiennes, Best Actress-Kristin Scott Thomas, Best Actress in a Supporting Role-Juliette Binoche, Best Screenplay Based on Material Previously Produced or Published-Anthony Minghella, Best Art Direction-Set Decoration-Stuart Craig & Stephenie McMillan, Best Cinematography-John Seale, Best Costume Design-Ann Roth, Best Film Editing-Walter Murch, Best Original Dramatic Score-Gabriel Yared, Best Sound-Walter Murch, Mark Berger, David Parker & Christopher Newman)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dr_xAhg_qV4

I haven’t watched this in forever, despite it starring the delicious Ralph Fiennes, because it’s depressing. You’re going to want to check it out at least once though. Plot: “At the close of WWII, a young nurse tends to a badly-burned plane crash victim. His past is shown in flashbacks, revealing an involvement in a fateful love affair.” (via IMDB.com) The film also stars Kristin Scott Thomas, Juliette Binoche, Willem Dafoe and Colin Firth.

“…it’s okay you didn’t like Broken Hearts Club or Kiss Me Guido. Let me tell you a little secret that we try to keep within the community, gay movies suck, but until the law is changed we’re still obligated to go see ’em” – Will & Grace

I tend to disagree with W&G on that one but it’s gives me a chuckle.

I just discovered the fun classic film blog Garbo Laughs and their Queer Film Blogathon recently. It’s a great idea and open to all film bloggers. According to the site “The Queer Film Blogathon will be held on June 27, 2011. The focus is on lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, or otherwise non-heterosexual, non-gender-binary depictions or personages in film.” So even if you found it late, like me, you should go contribute. This is to celebrate that June is Gay Pride Month. P.S. Congrats New Yorkers! Same-sex marriage was legalized Friday in the state of New York.

I am always realizing that there are genres that I need to add to the Netflix Instant Streaming category.

Click the film titles to be taken directly to the film on Netflix.

RuPaul’s Drag Race (2010) (Seasons 2-3) (Available Until May 22, 2013)

This is one of RuPaul’s reality shows that airs on the Logo network. They have various competitions to determine who the best drag queen is. I actually haven’t gotten around to watching it yet because I always realize it’s on when the season is already halfway through. Luckily I can watch the whole second season all the way through now. I have watched Drag U though which features drag queens who give women makeovers to improve their self esteem and win, of course. I really want a drag queen fairy godmother. It would so fun. In the meantime you can use the Dragulator, I did.

I Love You Phillip Morris (2009) (Available Until February 03, 2013)

Yes, I have previously mentioned my love for this film. Jim Carrey stars as the highly intelligent Steven Russell in the dark comedy I Love You Phillip Morris. He is a middle aged man who comes out and then becomes a con man to support his extravagant lifestyle. Ewan McGregor costars as the love of his life, Phillip Morris. Leslie Mann costars. The film was adapted from the book, I Love You Phillip Morris: A True Story of Life, Love, and Prison Breaks by Steve McVicker, which is based on the real life of Steven Jay Russell.

Dorian Gray (2009) (Available Until February 16, 2012)

Dorian Gray was a pretty good adaptation of my all time favorite book, The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde. They stick to the story, the dialogue (!) and there is plenty of debauchery. My main peeve is that the lead, Ben Barnes is a little odd looking. Dorian Gray is the story of a young, handsome man who finds out that the painting that was painted of him is what will age and show his sins while he stays eternally young looking. You can imagine how much bad stuff one can get into in that situation. There is a gay kissing scene, which is why I included it. Colin Firth (yum) and Ben Chaplin co-star.

Puccini for Beginners (2006) (Available Until March 20, 2022)

This is a romantic comedy starring Gretchen Mol (The Notorious Bettie Page), Elizabeth Reaser (Grey’s Anatomy), Justin Kirk and Julianne Nicholson. It’s about a lesbian who starts wondering if she’s really gay after a breakup. It’s a good little movie with a great cast.

Brokeback Mountain (2005) (Available Until December 16, 2014)

When two seasonal sheepherders unexpectedly fall in love they have to deal with their own feelings, their wives and life in general is this stormy drama. The leads are played by the fantastic late Heath Ledger and Jake Gyllenhaal. Their wives are played by Michelle Williams and Anne Hathaway. Randy Quaid, Linda Cardellini and Anna Faris costar. The film was directed by the super talented Ang Lee (The Ice Storm). If you haven’t seen this yet then you must, as soon as possible.

The L Word seasons 2-5 (doesn’t include 1 or 6) (2004) (Not Currently Available)

The L Word was the lesbian answer to Queer As Folk. It’s definitely more downbeat but still a great show. I simply chose a picture of Katherine Moennig as Shane because she’s my favorite character.

Tying the Knot (2004) (Available Until October 11, 2013)

This is a documentary about same-sex marriage laws in the US. It is from 2004 so I’m sure that much of the info is out of date but it looks interesting. If you want to get riled up you may also want to check out another documentary, 8: The Mormon Proposition, which is about the LDS trying to prevent the gay marriage bill in California. Reviews by Mormons say it’s biased, but of course it would be. That’s the point, to show how ridiculous their views on this are.

Nip/Tuck Seasons 1-6 (full series) (2003-2009) (Available Until July 1, 2014)

Man, I love Nip/Tuck and it’s over the top lifestyle and problems (many caused by their own egos) of 2 handsome plastic surgeons. Over the course of the show creator Ryan Murphy (Glee) featured many LGBT plots including transgender arcs. There was also a bit of a tease plot line about Christian (Julian McMahon) worrying that he might be gay (he’s a real horn dog for the ladies).

Wet Hot American Summer (2001) (Available Until October 1, 2013)


(gif source: fuckyeahguyskissing)

Wet Hot American Summer has to be included for the young, giddy makeout scene between Bradley Cooper and Michael Ian Black whilst a bit of a way away their friends are talking about how to get them chicks. From the mind of David Wain this is a hilarious satire of camp counselor movies. The cast also includes David Hyde Pierce, Janeane Garafalo, Molly Shannon, Paul Rudd, Michael Showalter, Amy Poehler, Elizabeth Banks, Marguerite Moreau and Ken Marino.

Boys Don’t Cry (1999) (Available Until August 1, 2012)


Boys Don’t Cry is based on the true story of Brandon Teena (Hilary Swank) who was a trans man (a person who is born female but gender identifies as a man) who falls in love with the pretty Lana (Chloe Sevigny) and the hate crime that follows. Peter Sarsgaard and Brendan Sexton costar. Netflix also has The Brandon Teena Story, which is the documentary about the real Brandon Teena.

Edge of Seventeen (1998) (Available Until September 1, 2012)


Plot: “A gay teen finds out who he is and what he wants, who his friends are, and who loves him, in this autobiographical tale set in middle America in the 1980s. Growing up, learning about life, love, sex, friends, and lovers.” (from IMDB.com). I was a big fan of this adorable movie as a teen. It stars Chris Stafford, Tina Holmes, Andersen Gabrych and Lea DeLaria.

Billy’s Hollywood Screen Kiss (1998) (Not Currently Available)

This comedy is uneven but it starred Brad Rowe (who Bop promised me would become a star, what happened?) at the height of his hotness. It’s no wonder that the movie is about Sean Hayes’s photographer character trying to turn him gay so he can romance him.

Kiss Me Guido (1997) (Available Until April 1, 2012)

Kiss Me Guido is definitely one of my favorites. Back before Jersey Shore (ew) not everyone was into the macho Italian American guy from NYC. Nicki Scotti (Detroit Rock City) plays this guy who really wants to be an actor but is working in a pizza shop. He’s a few slices short of a loaf so when he sees GWM in an apartment ad he thinks that it means “Guy With Money” instead of “Gay White Male”. When he meets his new effeminate, gay roomie (in the theater scene, score) laughs and friendship ensue. My sister and I still use that abbreviation incorrectly today for giggles. The movie costars Anthony Barille, Anthony DeSando, Craig Chester and Jennifer Esposito.

Chasing Amy (1997) (Available Until April 1, 2012)

Chasing Amy is a great comedy that proposes the question “Isn’t Ben Affleck so hot that a lesbian would fall for him?”. Just kidding, she falls for him as a person. The problem is that he can’t get her exes out of his head (which could happen in any relationship). Because it’s a Kevin Smith film (from his View Askew oeuvre) it has his trademark filthy humor but is also touching. Plus they are all comic writers (or tracers) so it’s like a good geek fantasy. The film stars Joey Lauren Adams, Jason Lee (Banksy!) and Jason Mewes. Characters from this film make a cameo in his later film, Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back.

In & Out (1997) (Not Currently Available)

Yes, I did already mention In & Out in one of these and while I don’t usually do repeats I had to do so with this film. You have to love Kevin Kline as teacher who struggles with coming out late in life but in a quite silly manner. Tom Selleck plays his love interest. The film costars Joan Cusack, Matt Dillon, Debbie Reynolds, Wilford Brimley, Bob Newhart, Shalom Harlow, Shawn Hatosy, Lauren Ambrose, Selma Blair and Glenn Close. It was directed by Frank Oz.

The Birdcage (1996) (Available Until January 1, 2012)


The Birdcage is a lot of fun. It’s one of those movies that any time that you come across it on TV you have to watch it, yet again. It’s a remake of the 1978 French-Italian film La Cage aux Folles. The adorable Dan Futterman is about to marry a pre-Ally McBeal Calista Flockhart. The problem is that his fathers (Robin Williams and Nathan Lane) are both gay and the owners of a drag club while Flockhart’s father (Gene Hackman) is a Republican Senator. So Williams fakes a different profession, Lane dresses as and pretends to be Futterman’s mother and they pretend not to be Jewish. Of course tons of hilarious scenes ensue. Diane Wiest, Hank Azaria and Chrstine Branski costar in this Mike Nichols film.

Jeffrey (1995) (Not Currently Available)

Jeffrey handled the fear of Aids with humor, not easy to do. Wings era Steven Weber stars as Jeffrey who is worrying but falling for a guy while trying to be celibate due to his fear. Definitely a flick that I’ve watched quite a few times. The film costars Patrick Stewart, Nathan Lane, Michael T. Weiss and Sigourney Weaver. Weber even tweeted about the movie Friday night in reference to NYC’s gay marriage approval.

The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert (1994) (Available Until January 1, 2012)



Yeah, you probably already know how awesome this movie is but we still have to address it now. I loved this movie so much that I used to covet this bus when I was young and imagine traveling cross country having adventures in it. It’s about a group of drag queens who travel across Australia to perform in fantastic outfits and deal with prejudice on their awesome bus, Priscilla. Terence Stamp, Guy Pearce and Hugo Weaving costar. If you’re already a big fan then you may want to pick up the Blu-ray which, according to the screencaps, here, looks amazing.

Heavenly Creatures (1994) (Available Until January 1, 2012)

This drama is about the tumultuous friendship of two young ladies played by Kate Winslet and Melanie Lynskey that leads to horrifying revenge. I recommend checking out the Film Experience’s Best Shot thoughts on it as well as Melanie Lynskey’s on the same site.

My So Called Life The Complete Series (1994) (Available Until March 1, 2013)


Though most of us first recall ah, Jordan Catalano (i.e. Jared Leto, front man of a pretty so so band) in all of this teen angst about high school we not only got to see Angela (Claire Danes) break out of her shell with the help of her drunk bestie Rayanne (A.J. Langer) but also their other bestie Rickie Vasquez (Wilson Cruz) who was actually out, in high school, in 1994, that takes balls. It’s a fantastic show that despite it’s super quick cancellation is discovered by new crops of teens every year, who still identify with it. It can also bring back the nostalgia for those of us who are a bit older but were here for the 90s.

Another Country (1984) (Available Until July 7, 2012)

I watched this flick a few months ago during one of my revisiting Cary Elwes phases. It’s a story about a young gay student (Rupert Everett) attending a boarding school in 1930s England. It’s very slow moving but worth checking out to see all of these hot guys in their super young days, including Colin Firth!

Longtime Companion (1989) (Available Until May 1, 2013)

Plot: “Perhaps the first film to put a human face on the AIDS epidemic, Longtime Companion follows the lives of a small circle of friends from the first mention of the disease in the New York Times in 1981. First referred to as “Gay-Related-Immune-Disorder,” we watch the effect of the disease as it devastates the lives of our protagonists. Jumping between Manhattan and Fire Island, vignettes carry us from the it-couldn’t-happen-to-me mentality of the early days of the disease to the invasive effect it has had on all of our lives, today. The title of the film comes from the New York Times’ refusal to acknowledge homosexual relationships in their obituary section during this period. Instead, survivors were referred to as “Longtime Companions” of the deceased.” (from IMDB.com). This drama stars the talented cast of Campbell Scott, Stephen Caffreey, Patrick Caddiy, Brian Cousins, John Dossett, Mary-Louise Parker and Dermot Mulroney.

The Rocky Horror Picture Show (1975) (Not Currently Available)



The Rocky Horror Picture Show was not only the first movie that introduced me to a sweet transvestite but also overpowering horniness in general as a child. It was one of my dad’s favorites. It’s an awesome musical about sci-fi, rock and roll and horny oddballs that a square couple meet on their honeymoon. Tim Curry and Susan Sarandon are fantastic. The whole cast is pretty amazing though (I still need to be Magenta for Halloween one day!). The whole cast is pretty amazing though (I still need to be Magenta for Halloween one day!). The film co-stars Barry Bostwick, Richard O’Brien and Meat Loaf. The movie has a huge following and tons of live shows as well as audience participation shows (that are sometimes aired on TV for Halloween) are often going on. A really neat looking Blu-ray book set was released for the film’s 35th anniversary in 2010.

Mango on SNL


“You cannot have the Mango!”

Chris Kattan played the adorable male stripper who could hypnotize any man into falling for him on Saturday Night Live during the late ’90s. Kattan was a cast member from seasons 16 through 23. There isn’t a definitive list out of each episode that featured Mango but you can watch Saturday Night Live The 1990s and Saturday Night Live The 2000s to find out. My sister even got me a Mango birthday cake back in the day, super neat.

Unfortunately Kattan used to get ragged on all of the time by his cast members for this character so in later episodes his unknown (but we were assuming at least bi) sexuality is revealed to be straight and he’s married, boo. SNL has also featured The Ambiguously Gay Duo cartoon mainly through those years but also once last season as well (with Jon Hamm and Jimmy Fallon as the live action versions). You can read a little more on gay sketches on SNL here.

“When they mix the sexuality and the violence, I like it” – Forgetting Sarah Marshall

If you were a character in an erotic thriller then how would you know? Are you worried that one of the people that you are sexing up on the regular is getting ready to murder you? Bingo!

Special Treatment (2010)

Well the cover of this movie is quite misleading/odd once you realize that the main character is a middle aged prostitute. However is a quite interesting movie. Plus both the lead actress and actor are quite talented. The yang to her yin is a psychiatrist with OCD and a crumbling marriage. If you enjoy a peek into a hooker’s life, ala a darker Secret Diary of a Call Girl, give this a watch. This French drama includes optional English subtitles.
Unrated

Diary of a Nymphomaniac (2008)

This disturbing coming of age tale focuses on a lusty French woman who decides to become a prostitute. She also has an absorbing yet destructive relationship with an older man. This flick is in Spanish with optional English subtitles.
Unrated

8MM (1999)


“If you dance with the devil, the devil don’t change. The devil changes you.”

Since 8MM involves a snuff film you might think that this is a sick addition. Seriously though, look at Joaquin Phoenix in this movie, so hot. He helps Nic Cage with his search. Of course they do have to associate with all different types of shady people, including people in the porn world, so I think that warrants its inclusion. I also recommend the direct to DVD sequel 8MM2. While it has nothing to do with this movie it has sex, deceit and hottie Johnathon Schaech.
Rated R for strong perverse sexuality and violence, and for strong language.

The Advocate (aka The Hour of the Pig) (1993)

This movie doesn’t sound/look that sexy to me but those who have reviewed it say that it is so I think that I’ll have to check it out. It stars a younger Colin Firth who’s rockin’ some shaggy ass hair. He’s a lawyer in a medieval court who apparently can’t keep his britches on. You can watch the trailer here on IMDB.com.
Rated R for elements of strong sexuality.

Basic Instinct (1992)

I still have no idea how it came to be that in the early ’90s every woman was supposed to be attracted to/obsessed with Michael Douglas but some how it just worked. This is, of course, the very famous movie starring Sharon Stone as an erotic novelist who is also the suspect in a murder case. Douglas is a detective who crosses the line with her. Yes, this is the infamous Sharon Stone snatch flashing movie. Is it the best thing ever? No, but as a fan of both actors I recommend checking it out at least once.
Rated R for Strong violence and sensuality, and for drug use and language.

Bad Influence (1990)

“You know, you make a funny face when you come.”

Bad Influence is fun because we usually see James Spader as a conceited asshole in movies but in the beginning of this movie he’s very meek. He becomes friends with Rob Lowe, who is basically all id, and teaches him how to be a player, while also toying with his life.
Rated R-may include adult themes, adult activity, hard language, intense or persistent violence, sexually-oriented nudity, drug abuse or other elements.

Stormy Monday (1988)


I haven’t seen this yet but it just went into my queue. This is Mike Figgis’ first film. It’s about seedy politicians and a nightclub. The movie stars Melanie Griffith, Sean Bean, Sting and Tommy Lee Jones. I recommend this post by a woman who appeared in the film.
Rated R for adult themes, adult activity, hard language, intense or persistent violence, sexually oriented nudity and drug abuse.
NOT CURRENTLY AVAILABLE

Chloe (2009)


“Am I your secretary or am I your daughter? Maybe I’m your seventh grade math teacher you always hated. All I know is that if I do it just right, I can become your living, breathing, unflinching dream, and then I can actually disappear”

A woman has a chance meeting with a high class escort which spurs her to hire the escort to test her husband’s fidelity. At the same time she herself is drawn to this sexy, young woman. This movie was even better than I expected. It stars Julianne Moore, Amanda Seyfried and Liam Neeson.
Rated R for strong sexual content including graphic dialogue, nudity and language.

Basic Instinct 2 (2006)

“You know how some guys are into blondes and some guys are into killers?”

Plot: Novelist Catherine Tramell is once again in trouble with the law, and Scotland Yard appoints psychiatrist Dr. Michael Glass to evaluate her. Though, like Detective Nick Curran before him, Glass is entranced by Tramell and lured into a seductive game.-from IMDB.com. I’m not actually a big fan of the Basic Instinct movies but there are some hot scenes in this. It stars Sharon Stone, David Morrissey and David Thewlis.
Rated R for strong sexuality, nudity, violence, language and some drug content.

Cruel Intentions 3 (2004)

“The only problem with fucking with someone as twisted as you is that you’re fucking with someone as twisted as you.”

I wasn’t sure whether I should include this movie because it’s tamer than the other films but I am a big fan of the series so, why not? Cruel Intentions 3 has completely different characters from the first film and the TV pilot (that was later released direct to DVD as a psuedo prequel). Of course they are supposed to be related to the other characters or something but who cares? What you need to know is that Kerr Smith (Dawson’s Creek) is so hot in this. The “plot” is about bored, rich college kids who toy with each other.
Rated R for strong sexual content and language.

Femme Fatale (2002)

not creepy at all

totally integral to the plot…like all faux lesbian scenes


(spoilers)

 

“I’m a bad girl Nicolas. Real bad. Rotten to the heart. “

“C’mon, Nicolas. You don’t have to lick my ass. Just fuck me!”

Plot: A woman tries to straighten out her life, even as her past as a con-woman comes back to haunt her.-from IMDB.com. I’ve been a big fan of this movie since it came out. It stars Rebecca Romijn, Antonio Banderas and Peter Coyote.
Rated R for strong sexuality, violence and language.

Murder By Numbers (2002)

“Please, that chick spreads like peanut butter.”

Plot: Two gifted high school students execute a perfect murder and then become engaged in an intellectual contest with a seasoned homicide detective.-from IMDB.com. This film was released years ago when Sandy Bullock was trying to be taken seriously as an actress. Her dramatic films didn’t cause droves to turn out to the box office so she went back to romantic comedies aside from that time that she won an oscar by showing her range (blonde hair and an accent). I wouldn’t call it a must see but it’s decent. The film costars Ben Chaplin, Ryan Gosling and Michael Pitt (the latter 2 are always sorta sexy in a creepy way).
Rated R for violence, language, a sex scene and brief drug use.

American Psycho 2(2002)

(crap, now there’s a pic of William Shatner on my blog!)

You mean you’ve never heard of this direct to DVD movie starring Mila Kunis as a murderous college student? Get on that! It costars the aloofly hot Robin Dunne (also seen in Cruel Intentions 2, The Skulls 2 and Species 3, he’s the top reason to rent direct to DVD sequels!)
Rated R for violence and language.

Original Sin (2001)

Original Sin stars Angelina Jolie back when she was still smokin’ hot plus Antonio Banderas and Thomas Jane (yum). It’s about a mail order bride who isn’t what she seems.
Rated R for strong sexual content and some violence.

Eyes Wide Shut (1999)

“So, because I’m a beautiful woman, the only reason any man wants to talk to me is because he wants to fuck me? Is that what you’re saying? “

This is, of course, Stanley Kubrick’s last film. It took years to make this movie and Kubrick was not known for being easy to work with. However if Kubrick wanted to cast you and your wife as the leads in his film even though it might contribute to the end of your marriage you’d probably still say yes, cuz it’s Kubrick. The basic plot is about Tom Cruise’s doctor character exploring different types of hidden sexual environments after his wife (Nicole Kidman) upsets him. This is my second favorite Kubrick film (A Clockwork Orange is tops). I was anticipating its release back in the day and it killed me that I had to wait for the DVD release because I was 16 (our movie theater had just started enforcing ratings). The film costars the late Sydney Pollack, Thomas Gibson, Leelee Sobieski, Vinessa Shaw and Alan Cumming. If you enjoy the film I recommend reading Like Being in Another World’: Vinessa Shaw on the 10th Anniversary of Eyes Wide Shut.
Rated R for strong sexual content, nudity, language and some drug-related material. (on Netflix, you can also buy or rent the NC-17 version).

Devil in the Flesh (1998)
Devil in the Flesh 2 (2000)


“No means no. Don’t you guys get that? What is it, you stop understanding English when you get a hard-on?”

The awesome Rose McGowan stars as a poor, unpopular, unhinged teen who falls for her teacher after she gives herself a skanked out 5 finger discount makeover. So good. The sequel, starring Jodi Lyn O’Keefe isn’t as good but is worth checking out if you get a kick of the first one.
The original is Rated R for strong violence and sexuality, and for some language.
The sequel is Rated R-may include adult themes, adult activity, hard language, intense or persistent violence, sexually-oriented nudity, drug abuse or other elements.

Never Talk To Strangers (1995)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lK3kZ19_8vo

“This is how I like my men, wet and naked”

Plot: Sarah Taylor, a police psychologist, meets a mysterious and seductive young man, Tony Ramirez, and falls in love with him.-from IMDB.com. It stars Antonio Banderas, Rebecca De Mornay, Dennis Miller and Harry Dean Stanton. Teen and pre-teen girls of the ’90s grew up with huges crushes on Banderas, so there you go.
Rated R for violence, language and some strong graphic sexuality.

Disclosure (1994)

“You stick your dick in my mouth and now you get an attack of morality?”

I am a huge fan of Disclosure. I never really understood why all of the women in 1990’s films were obsessed with Michael Douglas, because even though he’s cool he’s not really a looker. This movie rocks because Demi Moore was so headstrong in the ’90s. Since it’s 1994 one of the plots of the film involves some really ridiculous computer software but the main plot is “As a guy can you really be sexually harrassed by a hot woman?”. Well you can but who is going to believe you. The film costars Donald Sutherland, Roma Maffia, Dylan Baker and Dennis Miller.
Rated R for a very strong sex scene, sexual dialogue and other strong language.

The Crush (1993)

“Nick, ever do a virgin?”

Cary Elwes is a reporter who moves into a rich family’s guest house and becomes the objection of obsession by Alicia Silverstone. He tries to rebuff her but that doesn’t always work out. The film costars Amber Benson and Kurtwood Smith (Red on That 70’s Show). If you are also a big fan of the film I recommend reading The Crush Mansion at iamnotastalker.com and Brockton Point Lighthouse from The Crush at iamnotastalker.com.
Rated R for language and terror violence.

Fatal Instinct (1993)

Fatal Instinct is a spoof of the erotic thriller genre. Plot: A cop/attorney is seduced by a woman while his wife is having an affair with a mechanic. (from IMDB.com). This movie stars Armand Assante, Christopher McDonald, James Remar, Tony Randall and John Witherspoon in addition to 2 fantastic actresses, Sherilyn Fenn and Sean Young.

Rated PG-13 for racy humor.

Poison Ivy (1992)
Poison Ivy 3: The New Seduction (1997)

carrying on a proud tradition of seducing old guys

Back in the early 1990’s when Drew Barrymore was trying to not be seen as a little kid anymore (but before she wanted to be the girl next door) we got great cheesy movies like Poison Ivy and Doppelganger. She plays a teen temptress who gets Sara Gilbert and her dad (Tom Skerritt) to become enamored with her. Later Alyssa Milano decided to go the same route with Poison Ivy 2: Lily (my favorite in the series). After that a Jaime Pressly (My Name Is Earl) also got to take a swing at it. She’s mainly really good at getting people drunk in this movie. It costars Greg Vaughan (Charmed). There is a 4th film that was released in 2009 but I haven’t seen it.
Poison Ivy is rated R for sensuality and language.
Poison Ivy: The New Seduction is rated R for strong sexuality, and for some language and drug content.

Final Analysis (1992)

“Do you come out here a lot?” “No, just in moments of existential anxiety and when I want to impress a date.”

Now I definitely understand an obsession with Richard Gere. He is a psychiatrist who gets involved with his patient (Kim Basinger). Uma Thurman costars.
Rated R-may include adult themes, adult activity, hard language, intense or persistent violence, sexually-oriented nudity, drug abuse or other elements.

Wild at Heart (1990)

Plot: Young lovers Sailor and Lula run from the variety of weirdos that Lula’s mom has hired to kill Sailor.-from IMDB.com. Nic Cage, Laura Dern, Willem Dafoe, Crispin Glover, Diane Ladd, Isabella Rossellini, Harry Dean Stanton and Sherilyn Fenn star in this David Lynch film.
Rated R

Breathless (1983)

Plot: Jesse has to get out of Las Vegas quickly, and steals a car to drive to L.A. On the way he shoots a police man. When he makes it to L.A. he stays with Monica, a girl he has only known for a few days. As the film progresses, the police get closer to him, and the crimes escalate.-from IMDB.com. It stars the very yummy Richard Gere.
Rated R-may include adult themes, adult activity, hard language, intense or persistent violence, sexually-oriented nudity, drug abuse or other elements.

Body Heat (1981)

“Maybe you shouldn’t dress like that” “This is a blouse and skirt, I don’t know what you mean”

 

 

“…besides, maybe she’ll fuck me to death”

Plot-In the midst of a searing Florida heat wave, a woman convinces her lover, a small-town lawyer, to murder her rich husband.-from IMDB.com. I’ve always been undecided as to whether or not William Hurt was attractive when he was younger. After watching this I really don’t think that he is. He does do a great job of getting seduced by the always impressive Kathleen Turner. If you enjoy the film I recommend reading Turner’s autobiography because she goes into detail about the making of many of her films including this one. A young, geeked out Ted Danson costars.
Rated R for adult content, graphic language, nudity, and violence.

American Gigolo (1980)

“How many languages do you speak?” “5 or 6” “Plus the, uh, international language?” “That’s right”

Yes, the 3rd Richard Gere flick in this post! A super young, super hot Gere plays a high class hooker who falls for Lauren Hutton while getting caught up in some shady goings on. Hector Elizondo costars.
Rated R for adult content, adult language and mild violence.

Caligula (1979)

Malcolm McDowell is Caligula. Helen Mirren and Peter O’Toole costar. The film was produced by Penthouse!
Rated R for pervasive depiction of sex and violence. (the streaming version, the real version is unrated and dirtier).
