Fantastic Fest 2012!! Woohoo!

I am about to start a week of pure AWESOMENESS!  Last year was the first time I experienced Fantastic Fest and now I can not imagine missing out…ever.  Why?  Well, this is a film geek’s dream.  More accurately, a sci-fi-action-gory-strange film geek’s dream. The tagline for the event is ” A film festival with all the boring parts cut out.”  And boy, do they live up to that promise.

From the shaky face picture for our badges (mine is lovely!)–strange foreign films–cool activities–awesome parties to the hilarious icon chart (so you can know what to expect in each film), FF is NOT your ordinary film festival.  It is way too much fun!

Last year I just did one post and listed all my favorites (I will be attempting 29 movies this year–whew!) and ones to look out for.  I am probably doing the same this year, since it is too difficult to try and post each day.  It’s tiring watching movies all day and eating delicious food at the Alamo Drafthouse.  😉

I will try to post on fb (Nereida Mercado)–so if you want to friend me there you may see some updates and pictures.

Until then!

Here is the link to my tentative schedule:

About nediunedited

Who is nediunedited? A lover of cinema since the age of seven! All kinds–all genres. Films (TV and Books, too) have shaped my life–they were my escape, my inspiration and even my first role models. I do not rate my films in the traditional sense (no stars, grades, etc.)–instead I give you my opinion and my take on it–I do not give traditional plot summaries either, because I want you to go in clear–ready for your own experience. There is nothing better than discovering a fine film, without any other influence. (Personally, when I want to really see something I practice media shut out–I refuse to watch too many trailers, viral promos, reviews, etc–I have been known to cover my eyes and ears in the theater during trailers–LALALALA!) That’s me–hope you come by and visit! I will definitely make the rounds and find some of you out there, too.
