The Truth about Dare

dare falcon gay pornI always thought director Jett Blakk’s extremely clever, plot-driven movies would be a good match for Falcon, whose movies — especially lately — have been pretty flat, story-wise. I made some introductions and the powers that be hired him for a multi-picture deal. Jett thanked me by stabbing me to death in Dare, his first movie for them, which started out as a remake of Flashpoint but quickly took on a life of its own.

We filmed the scene at the LA County Fair last September and it was a really fun day. Despite an ambitious shooting schedule, Jett, my murderer (old-school gay porn star Lou Cass) and I found time to eat corn dogs, go on rides, and gab about horror movies. For the climax of the scene, Lou stabbed me in the Spook House and I even got to use fake blood (it was ketchup, but still). I posted a few pictures from the day on my Flickr account (warning, these pictures contain absolutely NO nudity).

The weather was crazy that day: sunny one minute and torrential downpour the next. As a result, a drop of rain was on the lens in a few of the shots so Falcon asked for a re-shoot. Second time around we shot the scene up here in San Francisco; it wasn’t as fun but the final product looks great nonetheless:

Falcon ended up releasing Dare as their big release of 2007. At the GayVNs, Dare was nominated for best orgy and best screenplay and Lou got nominated for best non-sex performance. Neither won (GayVN judges seem a bit biased against Falcon the last couple of years), but I’m pretty sure it will do better at the Grabbys. Make no mistake: I have no delusions about my contribution to Dare. I have no aspirations of becoming an actor and I realize that most people will end up fast-forwarding right through it to the actual hot parts, but it was fun and I got to feel like star for a day so what more could I ask for?

    I kept waiting for Lou Cass’ sex scene in DARE…too bad it never happened, he’s sexier now than when he was working regularly in porn.

    Always have been a Jett fan, with his style he just may be a great reason to start watching falcon again. Course it never hurts that Roman Heart is involved.

    I know the director of this flick has a connection to this site but lets be real. This was no great flick. With the amount of BIG talent, this should have been video of the year. The cover is given to some C list guy. Only the orgy scene is good. I dont know why, blogs like this keep trying to make this video something that it is NOT… a good video. Not only was this not even that great of a video, but it could never even compare to Flashpoint. Let’s please be objective.

    It seems like after you say, “It’s my last batch,” that you take the teddy bear and are outta there, which seems duplicitous. I don’t blame him!

    Brian, you first. Your opinion (and that’s really all it is) is hardly objective. And neither is mine. I have to say that I was and am a fan of FLASHPOINT. It’s one of Falcon’s classics. But I don’t think it has aged well. What I find lacking in it is what I like best about DARE: an intriguing, sometimes fascinating story. I know storyline XXX isn’t for everyone, but I love it, and Blakk is one of the best in the biz. FLASHPOINT doesn’t even get me off anymore, but DARE not only does (especially the scene with Bond and Burke), but I often watch it just for the story. DARE really is a notch above the average porn. I rented it twice, then bought my own copy.

    I second the post about Lou Cass. Can’t someone talk him into coming back into porn? Would have loved for the intro to DARE to have been a sex scene with Lou fucking Jack.

    No suprise, GAY PORN seems to be dying a very PAINFUL DEATH, with one BAD movie after the a consumer I think there studios and directors need to take a pageout of the classic Falcon Porn etc..first off get models that seem to have bodies that you might want to aspire to have..kinda like the guys in porn back in the 90’s..some chemistry between the models might help..and how bout a little imagination..scenery..some clothing props..these days i walk into the adult stores look at the new release shelves and walk right back for the movie was awuful ..orgy scenes are tricky..if not done well it could look a mess with just too much going on..which was the case here..GET IT TOGETHER STUDIOS or most are going to online porn!

    I liked Dare and while I thought it was better than average, certainly better than anything Falcon has done lately including Endless Crush and Velvet Mafia, I was a bit disappointed. I was expecting a fullblown Jett Blakk picture but it seemed stumped somwhow. I’d like to see him do anohter one but this time let him go balls out full guns.


  9. Str8-Jacket March 22nd, 2008 at 4:15 PM

    I dug Dare. Loved the gang bang and the intro. Jett should have thanked you Jack, by having Lou Cass stab you, if you get my meaning.


  10. Jett Blakk March 22nd, 2008 at 10:19 PM

    I learned a long time ago that you can’t be all things to all people. I consider myself lucky that I get, so often, the freedom to make the projects I find interesting, even if they don’t always fit the mold of the typical porn project. But I try my hardest, as most directors do, to make the best film I can and hope that it is enjoyed by as many viewers as possible. To those that are with me on this ride, thanks.

    As far as my connection to this site: Jack & Mike are my friends, my buddies. I respect them as writers, humorists and critics. But I have always encouraged them, when reviewing my work, to be completely honest, because it keeps ME honest. I don’t need my ass kissed. I have a husband for that. Besides, if you can’t trust your friends to be honest with you, then you can’t trust your friends at all. And what’s the point of having them?

    By the way, Jack, you ARE a star!



  11. Jack March 23rd, 2008 at 7:30 AM

    I didn’t even know Falcon was still around!


  12. Casey Scott March 23rd, 2008 at 7:34 AM

    Brian, the cover was given to the two STARS of the movie! Why would they put one of the Falcon exclusives on the cover? They were background performers, the story focused on Riley Burke and Braxton Bond, hence they get the cover.

    I naturally disagree with all of the naysayers; DARE was one of the best videos to come out of Falcon in a long time, and one of Jett Blakk’s best recent projects. And yes, it was much better than FLASHPOINT thanks to the lack of gay-for-pay performers (so prevalent in the 90s) and the infusion of chemistry between all of the scene partners.

    Is it me or does the comment by “Ralph” seem especially incomprehensible and most likely written by some bitter old queen showing the early stages of dementia? He so clearly hasn’t seen the movie we’re discussing and using this forum to bash Falcon. Snore. “Porn back in the 90’s” Dude, get laid!


  14. Salami Joe March 24th, 2008 at 1:04 PM

    I really liked DARE. I follow the gay porn industry a bit and was surprised that it didn’t get more GAYVN nominations. I thought the GRABBYS would correct that, but they were a let down too! One of the unsung hit points in porn history I guess.


  15. ChicagoCub March 24th, 2008 at 3:07 PM

    Porn should go back to the 90s??? Oh HELL to the no.

    Those Falcon movies of hairless, totally shaved, bleach blond boys having sex by pools?

    Heck no! I like the hairy real man look of the current stars. Hot House, Titan, Raging Stallion all raised the bar on the real men look.

    If you want to see young boys rent Bel Ami.


  16. chriso March 25th, 2008 at 1:29 PM

    I’m sorry, “ChicagoCub”, but if Titan is a representation of real men (‘roided out, body hair sculpted within an inch of it’s life) then I’ve apparently never seen a real man. Studios like Titan and Hot House are starting to have more and more men that look as cartoonish as the hairless queens of the 90s, the only difference is body hair.


  17. ChicagoCub March 25th, 2008 at 2:52 PM

    Criso –

    Maybe it depends on where you’re from. At a truck stop in the midwest you will see guys like Jake Dekkard – you won’t see blow dried, bleach blonde hairless boys.

    If I wanted hairless bleached blandness I’d marry a woman.

    Not to say there isn’t a young blonde man who I find attractive. (and there are exceptions – A big cock can win me over)

    I’m just saying that fake California look is over and it should stay gone.


  18. chriso March 25th, 2008 at 10:22 PM

    Well, as long as you’re dictating how everyone in the world of gay porn should look…because that’s a refreshing stance that gets everyone’s interests and desires represented, doesn’t it?


  19. charlie April 21st, 2010 at 7:20 AM

    Loved the scene of your (fake) stabbing! (BTW you are Really cute! Would’ve loved to see the Funhouse Murder version.) I really like it when a porn film goes out of the way to tell a story. (So Kudos to Jett Blakk for taking Dare there.)

    Making porn is an interesting mix but I applaud guys who care about adding layers of fun and storytelling to the sexperience.

    The truth is I have not seen Dare (yet).
    But I do like the discussions that your blog seems to incite…I mean inspire.
