Fabulous! The Story of Queer Cinema torrent reviews

Scott M (gb) wrote: This documentary succeeds because of the lack of editorial bias by the makers. They simply observe what happens, and have no agenda to push. Still, this does not quite satisfy. Do the members of Pussy Riot seek to generate publicity for themselves through their controversial, provocative acts? These women came across as smart, and courageous, though.

Dave F (kr) wrote: Very interesting! Whether this is true or not, and it is hard to say either way, this is a very well made documentary about a very interesting story. What the significance of all this geometry is I don't know, maybe we're all stupid and the Priory of Sion are all hiding and protecting deep secrets from us about the universe... oh well!

Brian B (fr) wrote: This movie is terrible, but I love it anyway. The creature looks like Stanford's mascot.

Luke D (ag) wrote: Remember back in 1999 when we had a great teen sex-comedy called "American Pie", now ten-years-later we get a terrible teen sex-comedy that misses almost every mark of getting this type of film right. As the humour goes it's lame and not funny, also it's heart isn't really there. Just another boring entery in the "American Pie" spin-offs.

Alex r (nl) wrote: Street Trash is one bizarre horror flick. Street Trash is one of the goriest, most disgusting films, but man is it fun. The plot of the film is fairly simple, a liquor store sells bottles of a drink called Viper that makes hobos melt. Thats all it is. But the strength of the film lies within its special effects and originality. I thoroughly enjoyed the film, even for its flaws, the film was still lots of fun to watch. Street Trash has one of the most simple plots to a horror/exploitation film, and the real star in this film are the gooey special effects. For me, it's what makes this film a must see. Not only that, but there's some very low brow comedy in this film that might appeal to fans of other bizarre horror comedies such as Basket Case. Street Trash is a well made film that is often overlooked because of it's obvious plot. Melting Hobos isn't exactly an interesting plot, or is it? Street Trash though a simplistic film in its execution offers a very entertaining hour and a half that is one of the most memorable, bizarre and horrifying rides that you will take. Director James Muro would later work as a steadicam operator for many big Hollywood blockbusters such as Terminator 2 and Titanic. I find it pretty funny how a film this bizarre would be made by a man who would film some big blockbusters. Street Trash is a fairly obscure title in the Horror genre, and it deserves at least one viewing. The film though eccentric is still fairly original, and evokes qualities of Peter Jackson's earliest directorial efforts.
