Based on the true story of Parinya Charoenphol, also known in the ring as Nong Toom, flawlessly played by newcomer Asanee Suwan, champion Muay Thai kick boxer in this is the tale of man who since childhood was not comfortable in his body. As a young boy, he was drawn to lipstick and playing with flowers. His parents attribute his transvestite state to poor karma and send him off to become a monk. This compelling tale finds him later winning his first match by skill and beginner’s luck in the kick boxing ring at a local temple fair. The rest as they say is history. He continues with the sport, eventually wearing makeup in his bouts, so that he can afford his sexual reassignment surgery.
The real Parinya Charoenphol
I really enjoyed this movie. Although his parents were accepting of his sexuality, the very male kick boxing camp was not. So Pari had to hide his sexuality again. His coach finds out because he catches him with his wife, sharing makeup. But this was really on purpose, because he needed a gimmick to get him to the big arena in Bangkok. He wore makeup to one local fight, and was promoted to the big arena in Bangkok. Then the question arose, was he really a transvestite or just faking it? There was really so much more going on, but I don’t like to give the whole plot away in my reviews. Also, there were stunning kick boxing sequences (all performed by real kick boxers) and breathtaking views of Thailand. This movie is definitely worth a look. I give this movie:
**** of five stars.
Rafael Alencar has begun to produce films from his new production company Black Scorpion Entertainment. If the four trailers that are available now are any indication, these new films will be very high quality and might set a new standard for the industry. The music, sets, and action sequences look very tight to me but do have a look at them yourself and let me know what you think. Just click on the banner for the film you wish to see the trailer for. It will look like the one below:

For those of us fans who have been swooning over Quentin’s perfect body and bee-stung lips all this time we finally have a cock shot to drool over.
And here it is:
Good god, he’s even playing with it and it’s hard! He’s even giving his nipple a tweak too! Oh, if only we could be there to help him out!
Now Pete, do tell us where you got this photo and if there are any more!!!

Magdalena, played by Emily Rios, jealously attends her friend’s Quinceañera (sweet 15 party) and plans her own. But her parents have their eyes on the budget, and have the same dress altered. The dress, which was already let out, still is not big enough, leading to suspicions that Magdalena is pregnant. Her conservative parents throw her out of the house and she runs to the abode of her 84 year old great-grand uncle Tomas, played by Chalo González, and gay cousin Carlos (8 inches uncut, if you know what I mean), played by Jesse Garcia, to live. Gay landlords move in and the fun begins.
This movie is guaranteed to make you smile as it examines the interplay between those traditionally cast out by families: pregnant teens and gay teens. Now that is saying a lot about a film! There is quite a bit of charm here, watching Tio Tomas sell champurrado (a thick chocolate brew) from a shopping cart in the neighborhood of Echo Park.
This film really is a must see. How can anything go far from wrong in the world? I give this movie:
**** of five stars.
