24. Fantasy Film Festival Hamburg

Every year in the middle of August it is time to enter the Cinema for some wonderful, great, innovative, thrilling and shocking movies. It is time for the Fantasy Film Festival

My wonderful boyfriend and me are always keen to see those movies as they aren’t Hollywood produced movies and it is very refreshing to see very good movies without the A-Liga Stars with well-known names.

From 18.09 until 25. 08 they showed 101 movies. It was again very hard to decide which films we are about to see as you can’t sit in then cinema for 24h. We cut it back until we had 3 movies left. We have seen Solomon Kane

on Saturday and it simply blowed us away. A great Story, stunning pictures and great characters. The second movie called Centurion also a movie played  in the wonderful United Kingdom. I simply love Michael Fassbender and he played again very well. An epic, rough but great movie. Very deep Characters and amazing Nature scene. We have seen our last movie yesterday evening. Not a typical Fantasy movie but extraordinary still. Maybe someone knows Four Lions ? It was hilarious from Minute 1 until the end but it truly has some deep moments and some where you ask yourself if it is appropriate to laugh or not. I really can recommend those movies and maybe you agree and see one after watching the trailer.

Would love to hear from you if you have seen some of the movies already or after you have seen them.:)

The funny thing about a Fantasy Film Festival is…yes the movies but right after that…the PEOPLE, who are going to see these movies. I love to watch people and I nearly cracked up as I saw that there are a certain bunch of people. Some would call them *Nerds or *Geeks or *Freaks or *IT’s or *Gamer or *Roleplayer… what so ever. The most of the things they shared was 1st. an i-phone 2nd a Gamer-Shirt with a geeky sentence on it or a pixel drawing or some large animals mostly the shirts were in black.  3rd the Glasses. A large group of these people had large black glasses on their noses. And some of them had books carried with them-can you guess it-  they were all Terry Pratchett books and OF COURSE in English. Last but not least I distinguish two groups of Fantasy Film Festival people. The tall and skinny dudes with huge glasses and long hair and the well, the thickly dudes with almost no hair and no glasses.

I am not a hater or so. I simply find it funny that there were so many people on that Festival but they had such a similar taste in clothes, cellphones, books and of course movies. A large Community and I am sure I will see them again-next year.

    The film festival sounds fantastic!

    Watched the trailers and for me Centurion stands out as one I would watch. Looks pretty darn good.

    Terry Pratchett fans are pretty awesome. 🙂 I met a bunch once whilst waiting to meet Terry at a book signing years back. I wasn’t a fan myself then, but I am now and have read the majority of the discworld series. Must reads.

    Great second blog post and look forward to your next.

    All the best
