Paranormal Activity

Standard

After all the hype around this movie I figured it might be worth it to give it a chance. As I watched the movie a majority of the time I was actually quite bored. If it had been real I would have thought that it was kind of interesting and maybe worth watching. But knowing that it’s not real, it was just boring and not that great a movie.

The only reason this movie has only gotten the amount of attention it has because of all the mystery behind it. The fact that the trailer shows only two seconds of actual movie footage just goes to show that there isn’t really anything in the movie worth watching. I will admit it was suspensful and had one or two jump worthy moments, but they couldn’t save this disappointing movie.

Royal Flush Festival

Standard

This weekend I am volunteering for the Royal Flush Festival. It’s a once a year festival that this year marks the release of Royal Flush Magazine. It includes film screenings, art shows, parties and rock concerts. It started on this past Thursday and runs until Monday.

Yesterday there were several movies screened at the Anthology Film Archives, and the official magazine release party at Crash Mansion. The bands playing this party were Cinema Cinema, Black Water Rising, Goes Cube and Suicide City. They all killed, I did get to check in on the bands every now and then but even while at the door I was able to hear.

Today it continues with more short films, panel discussions, an art show, more live music, and parties. Monday is the last day of the festival, and I highly suggest finding your way to at least one of the many events going on. For a complete schedule go to www.royalflushfestival.com.
