While not a gay film, 'Pirates'Ě deserves mentioning if for no other reason than the budget allotted for production. This one million dollar lavishly produced and fully scripted film produced by Digital Playground and Adam and Eve has, without a doubt, created the most talked about adult movie of the year.
Poised to take most of the coveted DVD and Film Awards at the 2006 AVN Awards ceremony in January at Las Vegas, Pirates has already seen sales that run rings around most traditional full-length porn productions. Who'd of thought that porn actors and actresses could actually speak and act?!¬†Pirates is a solid effort with a well written script, better than average acting, computer graphics, comedy, and one of the best looking casts ever assembled for any production. And they also managed to produce some totally hot sex scenes.
Such a lavish production is unheard of in the adult industry, and with the sound of a cash drawer that's constantly ringing up sales, I'm betting it won't be the last one. My guess is that studios and producers in a position to compete with both talent and money are scrambling to come up with scripts and scenarios that will start to rival the quality of films usually reserved for Hollywood budgets.
The possibilities will give you sweet wet dreams if epics like Gladiator and Troy were recreated with full on gay sex scenes. Just the idea has me wanting to polish my sword '
