I can't complain but sometimes I still do. Life's been good to me so far.

So where do you think we stand on the lineup now?
In other words how many more films do you think will be added or are we at the limit now?

I ran the numbers last weekend, and since we have several shorter length movies, we can add a lucky 13th.

Alright troops!

Looking at the schedule, I like it!

MAN WHO FELL TO EARTH - like it, don't love it, but I loved Bowie!

STARMAN - 70mm! Yeah baby

INVASION OF THE BODY SNATCHERS - always great to see on the big screen

PITCH BLACK - now we're talkin'! 'bout time we showed this kick ass flick!

DONOVAN'S BRAIN - send mo brains!

HIGH TREASON - should be fun to see this rare movie

IDIOCRACY - You of earth are idiots! Never caught this before so I'll check it out

NEVER LET ME GO - snore. hopefully a dinner break or middle of night nap

TRIP TO MARS - with live music? count me in!

THEY LIVE - put on your glasses and see what's really happening. Another kick ass pick!

BIG ASS SPIDER - ok. guess we need some cheezy big monster stuff

EX MACHINA - haven't seen it. great place to see it

excited!

According to the latest lineup I read via email, this is a another banner year for the SFM.  I can't wait!   Cheesy (Well, OK, I know I have to, but I'd rather just start now.  Good thing I have a Festival ticket!)

Especially anticipating "Invasion / BodySnatchers" (love that 1st version!), "Himmelskibet" (sp? love silents w. live music!), "High Treason" (heretofore unknown to me, so a true adventure), "Man Who Fell to Earth" (never shown at the 'Thon, so I've never seen it!), "Blade Runner" (what's not to like?)...  Looking forward to others, as well, of course.
Meanwhile, think "MELT!"
