|04.26.07|| Another night at Tim's house watching Fantastic Fest submissions. This time he's got a new 17-foot inflatable screen so he turned the night into a friendly get-together and invited a bunch of people to watch the movie out on his lawn. I got there a little late so a movie had already started. I don't know the name but it was Korean or something and epic and fantasy and whatnot like a House of FLying Daggers rip-off. It looked pretty but made absolutely no sense and I was quickly bored to tears. After sitting through that for like an hour, Tim finally mercifully turned it off and put on this short called Battle for the Serpent Stone. We all quickly realized that this was, in fact, a live-action G.I. Joe short film. It was awesome. I mean, it was a horrible film, but it was awesome.Duke, lady Jaye, and Snake Eyes are pitted against The Baroness and some cobra troops to find some stone. It's all pretty poorly made but the costumes are decent and it's just so awesome to see real live G.I. Joe characters! Can you imagine a full-length R-rated film??? With the dreadnaughts and the evil twins and cobra commander and destro and all those really specialized different kinds of vipers and whatnot?? oh man that would be so great.|
So they we watched this Austrian masochist movie. It's about a couple (Romeo + Juliet) who buy this piece of crap studio. Romeo is real tuff, punching people, doing his kinky girlfriend in parking garages and whatnot, and eventually murdering the sleazy real estate agent. So when he goes to bury the body, some madman knocks him out and buries him up to his neck in the dirt. What follows is about 70 minutes of screaming and spitting and fighting andyelling and whatnot. It's kind of funny and also uncomfortable and... ok I guess. I wasn't a huge fan but i had no problem watching it over, say, staring up at the moon or looking at my hands in the dark like I was doing with the previous movie. It's kind of right up Fantastic Fest's alley though so I won't be surprised to see this title on the schedule come September.
