|Title:||Feast 2: Sloppy Seconds|
Other Movies Seen By This Director (1)
|09.19.08||Alamo South Lamar||This Screening is part of event: FantasticFest 2008|
So... seeing the first Feast at the first Fantastic Fest was pretty fun. It was better than I thought it'd be, it was fun to see the people from Project Greenlight in person, and it made for a pretty enjoyable midnight romp at the Alamo. It seemed fitting then to see the second one at a Fantastic Fest as well, especially with Gulager patron Clu in tow. Return of the Living Dead! The Killers! Last Picture Show! Clu Gulager! Son in a certain sense, sitting through this movie was worth it just for the Q&A when he took the mic and said all sorts of nice fatherly things about his sons and the production.
I also liked the Q&A because it turned out that the cute tattoo'd biker gang girls who got naked in the movie were sitting right behind me and admitted to all being on a porn site. Of course I didn't pay attention to which (godsgirls.com, there's a free tour).
The movie... Well, I was pretty tired by the end of it. I was expecting it to just end because of how they shot part 2 with part 3 but the ending was pretty damn blunt. The movie also seemed like a lot of talking about doing things. Not much happened. It had the same fun tone jacked up with kitchen sink ideas that probably read better than actual execution allowed (like having a badass biker gang pair up with a used car salesman and midget luchadore brothers), but you know... the idea was fun enough. The problem is that nobody actually did anything. I probably enjoyed the director's brother's role the most. He definitely had the highlight of the film when he tries to save a baby and says "fuck it" halfway through. I also like how he wanted to autopsy the monster but that went on way too long. Everything went on way too long. Ugh.
But the Q&A was fun, especially when someone (whose name rhymes with targill) asked if it was done or if they were still working on the effects. "Also, John, I'd like to ask if you're pregnant or just fat." OK he didn't say that, but I bet Gulager would've had a better time answering. Clu!
