Third week of August it was, my lovely readers, which means a whole week full of wonderful movies, special people, who are going out to watch them and delightful atmosphere.
It’s the vibe that always hits me when I line up with all the movie Fans all excited to see movies, which sometimes don’t fit in a specific Genre or have the chance to rule the big Movie Theatres, even though they are brilliant.
It’s the joy of art in movies, joy about well drawn characters, joy of really good music. To sum it up, the joy of being very well entertained.
That is why me and the Mister entered the Fantasy Filmfest for the third time. This year we could only see 2 out of 70 movies as we were in Paris the weekend during the Filmfest. Pity that was but you can’t simply have everything, right?! 😉
The first movie we have seen was a creepy remake from producer Guillermo del Toro named “DONT BE AFRAID OF THE DARK”. I love his way of producing and his talent for weird-looking creatures as you can see in the movie Pans Labyrinth or HELL BOY II The Golden Army. It was such an exciting movie and I was thrilled and creeped out every single minute! 😀 I felt also a tinsy bit special because all the people who watched the movie with us were in fact the first people on this earth who did as we could see it before the US release!!! 😀 Lucky us. Katie Holmes, Guy Pearce and Bailee Madison played the main characters. I simply loved Bailee’s acting she is so amazing!!!
The second movie called “ATTACK THE BLOCK” by Joe Cornish. Its hyper hilarious, fun but also really, really scary at times. You hear the adrenalin pumping in your ears. I havent seen such an amazing movie in years!!! Great young actors, cool coming of age story meets Alien invasion in a huge apartement block in London. Splendid dialogues cracked me up all the time. Fantastic piece of movie with a bloody brilliant soundtrack. Will surly get this one! 🙂
Here comes the trailer:
I so can’t wait for next years Fantasy Filmfest. I love how exciting everyone is after the movie. It’s common sense that you applaud after the movie and for sure give scene applause after a fun, cool or exciting moment! Its how watching movies in theatres should be, I find! Fun, entertaining and with a grateful crowed who really appreciate the movie they’ve seen.
Till next year than when its time for the 26. Fantasy Filmfest!
