     'JADE CITY' BOOK
TO BE TURNED INTO EPIC SHOW
Jade City is the first book in the saga
If you are in the mood for a series in the vein of Into The Badlands and Warrior, NBC's streaming service Peacock has bought TV series adaptation rights on JADE CITY, the first book in the fantasy trilogy The Green Bone Saga by Fonda Lee. Breck Eisner will be one of the producers of this epic saga of magic and martial arts where two rival clans will fight to the bitter end for love, honour and power. Set in an Asia inspired fantasy metropolis reminiscent of 70s Hong Kong, Jade holds mystical powers and our two warring families will fight to the end over its control. Dave Kalstein will also produce beside writing the script.

     1ST 'SUBLET' CLIP
AN ISRAELI GAY ROMANCE
The movie will get US release next year
And another delightful gay movie for you today as well after those two from yesterday: Israeli movie SUBLET will play in US cinemas next year directed and written by Eytan Fox. It sees Tonny award winner John Benjamin Hickey playing a New York Times travel writer who comes to Tel Aviv after suffering a tragedy. The energy of the city and his relationship with a gorgeous younger man (Niv Nissim, in his debut performance) brings him back to life. They are  from different generations and have had very different lives, but have so much to share with
The movie contains delightful male nudity and sex
each other. Sublet already had its premiere at The Tribeca Film Festival 2020. The film celebrates the freedoms that we had before covid and that we miss today: to travel, explore, make connections and get a new take on the world!

  1. I love John Benjamin Hickey. He was hilarious as the gay bipolar brother in that miniseries of a few years ago, "The Big C." I'll watch for this movie!

  2. Jade City probably isn't for me, but I do think Sublet looks delightful.

    1. Gay films are often so nice and cute, I've watched Argentinian film THE BLONDE ONE this year and it was one of the most beautiful little films I've seen in my life, just raw emotion and characters unveiled and naked in their simple humanity and search for love.

    2. I'll have to see if that one is available here. If you enjoyed it that much, I probably will too.

    3. It is indescribably beautiful in its natural mellowness and slow, but meaningful dynamics. I loved it almost as much as God's Own Country which is the best gay themed film ever.

  3. Neither Jade City nor Sublet ... I like both of them. And I will watch. I don't feel uncomfortable watching gay movies because I really respect the privacy and nature of someone who was born that way.

  4. Sublet looks like fine!! It scares me when you say freedoms pre-covid. We have to be set free soon, right?! :( How are you guys doing with your numbers?

    1. Numbers are still high, but we are more freaking out about our dictator of a president who is effing us blind on a daily basis than about covid. The school starts September and parents are freaking about that too.
