Fantasia awards 2004
Overall, I'm surprised with a lot of the choices. One Missed Call was my favorite of the festival, and I don't see it anywhere. Maybe it was shown too late to be included?
Ju-on, best Asian film voted by the fans? That threw me for a loop, I was really let down by it.
I'm pleased One Point O got a lot of recognition. It was something else, that's for sure.
And it figures the two movies I wanted to see but didn't (Shaun of the Dead, Last Life) and one movie I bought a ticket for but couldn't see (Uninvited) took home top honors. C'est la vie.
Has anyone seen Into the mirror?
I had my ticket but I couldn't go.
How was it?

A touching and original love story about two people who fall in love with each other without ever having met... tragic and a little twisted. Very well done. This and LAST LIFE IN THE UNIVERSE have been my fave films so far... Let's not forget IMMORTEL:)

Tonight it's FAILAN and OAN HON... hope I fare better than yesterday...
My last film will be on Friday - ONE LAST CALL, I think I'll pass on SAVING PRIVATE TOOTSIE,
so if anyone wants the ticket....
ROMASANTA and OKUL were interesting in that you had a pretty girl's face to look at at least:)
OKUL was really a teenage "horror" ghost/comedy/love story... no blood, no gore... really for kids, it was a message film for Turkish youth!
ROMASANTA, started off with promise, but turned lame mid through. I wasn't expecting a serial killer film,
but interesting to know it was based on a true story.
the bitter taste of "what?"
Romasanta was a bit of a disapointment. i wish whoever writes those blurbs would actually WATCH the movie beforehand. it'd really be a help to all us poor suckers who have to rely on it. that was NOT a werewolf movie (though it did contain an original transformation sequence). the werewolf part was an incidental side-note, barely worthy of notice. based on a true story, apparently. and, for the second time, i was cheated of my foreign film. can't any of these films be in their original language, other than the Asian ones? meh.
just one more movie left for me: Red vs. Blue on Sunday, and since i've already seen it, no surprises there. a good way to end the festival, i think. Why does this tank have 6 pedals but only goes in 4 directions!? Current Mood: disappointed

DJ XL5 movies?
I was at the showing of DJ XL5 on Saturday, and I was wondering if anyone here would know where I could download the clips they showed there. Specifically, I'm interested in:
- Kaiju meet commercials (I went to www.kaiju.com but couldn't find where to download them, and still don't understand what it's about)
- Micheal Jackson and Barbie having sex at the travel agency
- The Crippled Masters (I think there's also a full length film with them)

Saw Killing Words tonight... I really liked it, a lot of twists and turns and a great performance by Dario Grandinetti. It reminded very much of A Patricia Highsmith novel, and was directed by a woman for a change. All in all a good thriller that relied on a real psychological mind game.

Would someone be interested in buying one ticket for Angel's Egg, August 1st at 16:45 ?
If yes, e-mail me at jgoulet005 (at) sympatico (dot) ca

caught The Uninvited last night ~ it was an excellent movie. disturbing, yes, and either the film or the camera kept going out of focus (very annoying) but overall i highly recommend it. it wasn't anything like the blurb advertising said. a complete mind-fuck, with a disturbing amount of people committing suicide and/or being killed, but i definately recommend it. everything's done in 2s, and there's some gorgeous camera angles and shots. Current Mood: awake
I forgot to mention this two days ago.
For those of you who really enjoyed the Exorcist
and The Shining
re-created by bunnies in 30 seconds can go here
to find the two newest flash animations from the duo. This time they cover Titanic (very good) and Alien. Enjoy!
