|03.28.06||Alamo South Lamar|| So that let out just in time to get a decent spot in the line for Harryhausen and King Kong. Fortunately some friends showed up when a separate line to buy books started up so i could save my spot while getting the overpriced coffee table book to get him to sign. Luckily he's signing afterwards because the line's really long.|
King Kong... I'm still not in love with it. Maybe it's because I never saw it when I was a kid, but it doesn't have a hold over me like a lot of others. I think it's pretty slow and has a weird structure and doesn't really make that much sense... there are some good things about it too of course... i like how the movie draws sympathy for the monster and the long silent sequence with Driscoll on Skull Island is really cool... but I dunno, I just don't love it.
But afterward, it was cool to hear Harryhausen talk for a bit, then the dude who was at BNAT to show us a 2 minute trailer of this Edgar Allen Poe stop-animated short was there to show us the 6 minute full version... that was basically the same. Then they showed 2 minutes of a movie that looked really funny but I have no idea what it is or if I'll ever see it again.
afterward I managed to get my book and my Clash of the Titans DVD signed, which was awesome.
