First Day At Sundance 2008

sundance 2008 First Day At Sundance 2008I drove up to Park City yesterday and ran into a few movie blogger friends of mine: Alex from FirstShowing.net, Peter from /Film and Neil from Film School Rejects (yes, that’s really the name of his site).

I hung out with them while they got settled in at their condo, then we went out for a bite to eat where I dropped $24 on a cheeseburger and a Guiness. Yeesh! After that we attended the premiere of In Bruges, which I’ve reviewed. It’s a hard movie to describe, so if you’re interested just read the review. I don’t think it’s going to do very well at the box office but that’s not because it’s necessarily a bad movie… it’s just kind of odd.


After that we headed to the party for the movie, where I wasn’t on the RSVP list but one of the gatekeepers finally let me in. I left before I was able to see anyone famous, but I hung out with a bunch of other movie bloggers including representatives of Bloody-Disgusting.com, Chud.com and ComingSoon.net. I also got to meet “Quint” from Ain’t it Cool News and he was a very nice guy.

I left before any of the actors from the movie showed up, but after I left some of my buds had the opportunity to rub elbows with Colin Farrell, who was excellent in the film.

The party was jam-packed with people and the music was very loud. Lots of folks were of the “beautiful people” set. icon smile First Day At Sundance 2008 Me, I’m more of a Comic-Con party guy, so I took off fairly early.

I’ll be heading up again sporadically to cover films of interest to myself and to you guys. I was going to head up tomorrow to see George Romero’s Diary of the Dead, but not one, or two, but THREE people whose opinions I respect saw it and said it was awful, so I don’t think I’ll do 2 1/2 hours of round trip driving to go see it. icon smile First Day At Sundance 2008

Look for more Sundance coverage and reviews in the upcoming week.

    Vic…
    …the ONLY thing guiness should be used in is an Irish Car Bomb.

    Don’t think I could stomach it straight and with food….

    Keep up the great work nonetheless.
