  1. You know, I thought you had made up these movies, until #3, which is in my queue. Also, netflix is always recommending movies in the LGBT genre for me, because I think netflix is under the impression that I am a gay man. Of course, I love all the movies they recommend, so I guess I'm not setting the record straight. (Jen D)
