10th Anniversary: A SERIOUS MAN

"I have never seen a film that mixes laugh-out-loud comedy so intimately with dead serious philosophical questioning. It packs so much into its short runtime. " - Dr strange

"This movie is one of my favorites - Michael Stuhlbarg the biggest reason, he's so heartbreakingly fantastically good in everything." -Rebecca

VOTE In Our Thirst Trap Party. We Rounded Them Up For a Sexy NY's

Happy New Year's Eve! One last year in review list during the actual calendar year (though you know 2017 film year doesn't truly end until the Oscars are handed out). Here's Nathaniel R...

[Pictured left: Lady Bird just needed to see some D. We've all been there.]

In a not so festive season when we've all been thinking hard about a lot of terrible thinkings like corrupt governments and oligarchies, sexual misconduct and systemic isms that make life such an oppressive mess for so many people (and damage everyone -- even the opporessors -- since we all are truly in this life together) as well as the terror of both climate change and this particular cold snap  (I'm super sick right now, yay!)  it may feel counterintuitive to be silly and celebrate, I dunno, sexy movie men.

But it is New Year's Eve as I type this (my least favorite holiday since i can remember... I only like to goof off at home and make lists for this one) and we must start the New Year on a positive hedonistic note. Puritanism is bad for you anyway since sex and the enjoyment of sexy things can be a source of immense  joy and pleasure and intimacy and/or whatever both consenting parties have agreed upon. 

If you're a cinephile some part of you loves to look so this one's for you as we ogle some movie men after the jump. We squeezed them into six themed groups in their showoff or coy glory from which you should vote and choose the winners, okay? Okay!  



(It's not our fault one of the mom's took this literally)



Who will sooth their sexy sexy loneliness?


Place your bets, throw your beads, buy your tickets, or just gawk. They love to be looked at.







In the comments we'll gladly take other thirsty suggestions, too!

Arnaud Valois is my 2017 hunk. The quiet/sensitive type has never appealed to me until I saw it in his form.

January 1, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterBushwick

Oscar Isaac in all categories

January 1, 2018 | Unregistered Commentereurocheese

How DARE you suggest I can choose in my current state? Lol
Question 4 is so hard, I almost forgot Arnie Hammer should have been there


January 1, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterG.ShaQ

Twink category should be dubbed Spacey/Singer.

January 1, 2018 | Unregistered Commenter/3rtful

Chris Pine is there - and leader of the pack! - so I'm good, thanks.

Happy New Year!

January 1, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterGena

Those were tough. Thanks Nat. That was fun.
I also loved Alec from gods own country and Arnaud from BPM.

Chris Hemsworth always makes me thirsty....

January 1, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterJaragon

I chose Ludi Lin because (a) he's handsome/charismatic and (b) curiously Asian men *always* get short-shrift in this dept. (Oscar Isaac, though, is hot as hell, so either will do—me.)

January 1, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterMareko

P.S. Jason Mitchell was sexy-sweet in Mudbound, the heartiest of the lot by a country mile. (There's no way Chris Pine competes with him in that dept. None.)

January 1, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterMareko

I love the shout-out to Handsome Devil, a sweet film that should have gotten more traction.

January 1, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterSan FranCinema

Where is Armie Hammer?!!
Poe can do it to me all night tho

January 2, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterCraver

I don't know how there isn't a campy action comedy titled Twink Wars by now

January 2, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterJoey

That Paul Hemy!!! Wow, I have no idea what's going on in that trailer, but if he's going to strip down that much, then I think I need to support him doing that!

Not enough Bears for me here, but that's just me. Armie did look really good in CMBYN, and Hugh Jackman kept on too many clothes in TGS.

Again, we need lists like this. Weekly, if not more, I say. Happy New Year!!!

January 2, 2018 | Unregistered Commenterforever1267

Joey -right? someone needs to pitch it.

January 2, 2018 | Registered CommenterNATHANIEL R


I am totally with you. The man had me swooning that entire 2 and a half hour masterpiece.

January 3, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterJS

I dont get how any selfrespecting gay man can choose anyone in Call me by your name. Like, come on!

January 3, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterPablo

Kofi is a real find. Damn.

January 4, 2018 | Unregistered Commenterbrookesboy

O'Shea Jackson, Jr was pretty swoon-worthy in INGRID GOES WEST. (He's also in my lineup for Best Supporting Actor.) A warm, sweet charm and killer comic timing that gave a beating heart to a movie populated with relentless sociopaths. And that smile!
