Bowtie Boy has been trekking around philly for 3 years. He enjoys theatre, beer gardens and intellectual conversations that lead nowhere. When he's not free-lancing his social media management and digital marketing strategies, he's at home in his underwear watching Dr. Who and eating Reese's puffs.

There are many perks to blogging for PGC (PhillyGayCalendar), and one of my favorites are the pre-screeners I get to watch before Qflix Film Festival hits Philly, so I can make informed decisions on what to reccomend, or what to suggest you avoid! This year, I was blown away by EVERYTHING I watched!!

Something new I tried this year was diving into the "shorts" category with MANLY MASHUP shorts! I'm a not so secret "perv" so when I saw titles like "Blow Job 2017" and "Secret Santa Sex Party" I knew I would be delighted. I'll be honest, on first pass I wasn't blown away (pun intended) by either of the films, but after watching them a second time with a more artistic eye, I enjoyed the creative liberties the directors took to showcase sides of people not regularly seen.

Other shorts worth mention, Bob the Drag Queen's "Deck a Ho" was a fun pesudo music video that had me cackling in my living room, It was part of the Brandon Smithson Shorts collection, of his list I also enjoyed the "Body of Arisce" it was a <2 minute short about a fabulous woman in an epic costume, how could I not love it?

If you're looking for skin or hot, I totally reccomend "The Good Waiter," I can't say much without spoiling it, but the sex scenes are epic and the story line was fun!

As for the full movies I screened, the only one I couldn't make it through was "Utopians", tons of male nudity, but I found the plot to be too eratic for me to follow (even with subtitles!)

I enjoyed "Flatbush Luck," it was lighthearted and fluffy, made for a good snowday movie!

This was just a handful of the countless movies coming to Qflix March 14-19, for locations and times (or to buy an ALL ACCESS pass, visit
