    I tried to see if someone had made a tread about this film yet, but didn't see any. Hopefully this is not a re-post.

    What do you guys think of this movie?

    Ho humm! Another GAY movie about GAY guys being GAY for a GAY audience. While I'm sure the story is told very well through great acting and directing, I feel that once you've seen one movie like this, you've seen them all. This is one of the reasons I no longer attend Out on Film (Atlanta's LGBT Film Festival) because it's the same sort of movies every year. Why can't someone make a movie like Godzilla in which the main character just happens to be gay? I've seen quite a few gay movies in my time during the '90s and early 2000s, so this movie isn't really anything new or different. It's just a love story about two men. I think just because it is new and it has good looking men, some gay guys will go see it anyway.

    Overall, I would feel differently about this movie if it had come out in, say, 1995. Back then, a lot of guys, including myself, were in the closet and desperately needed to see a good quality gay film that we could relate to without stereotypes. Weekend is too little too late. In 1991... it would have been perfect. In 2011... it's just late. I want to see a gay guy help Godzilla to fight Mothra, or a gay character negotiate peace talks with extraterrestrial beings, or a gay guy turn into a giant spider and eat people. Give me something different!!!

    hmm... well i generally hate most of the gay movies gays love but I thought that this looked good icon_confused.gif maybe just my mood.

    every movie has been done before, but it's how it's done that counts.

    The movie has gotten fantastic reviews (100% currently on Rotten Tomatoes) I personally think this movie is going to be fantastic and really well done. Many have said that it might be the best love story of the year...Wait and see I guess
