So we did manage to get in to see Robot and Frank Friday night, which was fantastic. After the movie, the director, writer, and cinematographer did a Q&A, which included an impression of Christopher Walken.
We chose Robot and Frank, one of my must-sees for our first feature length movie at Sundance. If this film is any indication, we are definitely off to a great start.
After breakfast today, which was free and delicious, we headed into Park City. I really had no idea what to expect. However, everyone we met was beyond friendly and helpful. The festival is very casual and laid back.
So what could the Sundance Film Festival have in common with Elvis? You would think nothing, wouldn’t you? Well, guess again! On our way to Park City, Utah, we had an Elvis sighting.
The comparison is impossible not to make. Fox’s Alcatraz, a new thriller series by J.J. Abrams, is always going to be compared to his hit series Lost. Unfortunately, this is going to be Alcatraz‘s downfall. Even worse? The show does not even come close to the qualities that made Lost so wonderful: mysterious storylines, great writing and fantastic acting.
I woke up Friday morning to a direct message from the folks over at Bing that I had won a contest to the Sundance Film Festival this week. Completely unbelieving, I sent my phone number and email address and before I know it, I was signing an affidavit that stated I did not work for Microsoft and would not hold Microsoft responsible if I break my neck in a skiing accident. I ran to the bank, got the form notarized and started searching for a traveling companion.
I must admit that I’m not entirely sold on The Avengers yet. I like the individual Iron Man and Captain America movies, but the idea of putting those two superheroes together plus more (including Scarlet Johanns0n, who still hasn’t convinced me she’s a good Black Widow) makes me rather uninterested.
If you happen to love Star Trek and its technology and have a little know -how, you could build your very own tricorder. But even better, if you build a tricorder, you could also win $7 million from Qualcomm.
Happy Friday the 13th! In honor of what could very well be a spooky day, I’ve decided to post a video that serves as a prequel for the upcoming season for of the UK’s Being Human.
