    The Lost Boys


    Romance between two quiet boys at a juvenile detention facility. The plot is minimal. The focus is on the unrelenting boredom of the prison routine and the strain it takes on mental health. The actors aren’t given much to work with but they can smolder like nobody’s business.

    Still funny on a rewatch. Though the lumpy screenplay could use a tighter edit. Eichner's character wants to be loved without judgement. He never learns to offer the same grace to others. Macfarlane's subtle performance really shines after watching him in Hallmark's bland Notes of Autumn. He's got charm and comic timing that Autumn never let him use.

    Okay. We tried putting gays into the Hallmark formula. Let’s accept that it doesn’t work and go back to telling actual queer stories. This film really wants a black gay man to move from LA to lily-white New Hampshire to be with mopey Michael Urie and his insufferable family. And I just wasn’t there for it.

    Also, you cast Jennifer Coolidge and you don't write her a single joke? What's wrong with you?

    Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe


    Angry teen struggles with his feelings for another boy. The actors are handsome and sweet. But the brisk screenplay doesn’t lay the groundwork for their relationship. It reduces the novel’s key events to snapshots in a scrap book. The ending feels unearned.
