Last year, I decided to take a week off work and go watch movies! There’s a genre film festival here in Austin called Fantastic Fest, and I was burned out, and didn’t have money to go far, so I thought that would be a good fit. And it was, in fact, it was incredible! Zombies! Martial Arts! Horror! The Japanese! Other Furriners! More Zombies! I loved it.
Thus, I’m going back this year. Expect to hear less gaming stuff and more movie stuff for the next week.
Here’s a recap from my FF ’09 experience, with all the films I saw and the ratings I give them!
Also, this year you can follow along even if you aren’t coming. A lot of the premieres – Let Me In, Buried – are coming out super soon. And four of the movies are available on demand from IFC Midnight at the same time they play at the festival.
I’ll blog along as I go so you can all enjoy too!
