Are these films the 50 best LGBT movies of all time?
The movie: The Wachowskis' pre-Matrix debut is still held in high regard by cinephiles AND lesbians for one simple reason: it's a tightly-wound, cinematic masterpiece that just happens to be about two gay women. There's no time spent on the womens' quibbling about their orientation - because that's a topic handled in so many other movies - this is about getting down to business. That business being the mafia. Why it's worth a watch: Corky and Violet know how to screw over the mob, but for the gay audience, it's way more fun when they screw each other. A movie that gets it right. The movie: There's more than a passing resemblance - and passing of the torch - to the Angry Young Men kitchen sink dramas of the '60s.

Why it's important: You won't need your 3D glasses for this one. Taylor's shark boy sets the precedent of what it really means to be a toned and defined bulge in Hollywood. Although this bulge is on the perky side, it lacks girth circumference that makes for a five-Hamm bulge. Why it's important: Although we have no doubt this gleeful bulge has the potential to make you feel like you're living a teenage dream, it has room for growing in those spacious sweatpants.
