Yesterday morning I delivered Julia to the airport for her to make her annual trip to visit family in Tucson. Unfortunately for the second year in a row, my schedule didn’t line up so I could accompany her. My loss is your gain, however, because that also means for the second year in a row it will be the Julia’s Outta Town (J.O.T.) Film Festival here at Naked But For a Loincloth!
My plan will be the same: try and watch at least two movies each day she’s gone (Monday through Thursday) and provide short reviews. Since today is already Tuesday, that means I already have two movies from last night to report back on, which I hope to do yet this afternoon. These movies (ahem, excuse me, films) will be ones that I wouldn’t necessarily watch with her. So either stuff I want to re-watch (she isn’t a big re-watcher), stuff she thinks I should see because she already has, or stuff I want to see that I doubt she’d like, or that she has already said she doesn’t want to watch. Expect nothing but the best.
Meanwhile, here is a recap from last year’s event, which also covered four days.
Day One: Haywire and Underworld: Awakening
Day Two: Batman Night, featuring Batman Begins and The Dark Knight
Day Three: Winter’s Bone and American Grindhouse
Day Four: True Grit
Looks like last year had some problems, and kind of fizzled out at the end (i.e. X Night never happened?!). I’m better prepared this time around, with movies already rented and ready to watch. The excitement . . . can you feel it?
