30 Days Of: Film, Days 16 – 20

Due to some health issues and some problems with technology, I’ve missed out on 30 Days Of a few times this week, so here’s this catch up post.

Day 16: Who is your favourite actor?

I’ll have to go with Paul Rudd for this one. He’s exceptionally versatile, and a lot of his movies are some of my favourites. He can obviously do comedy really well, but he’s also a really great dramatic actor too!

Day 17: Who is your favourite actress?

For as long as I can remember I have loved Keira Knightly. I don’t particularly have any strong feelings for period dramas, but I will watch them if she’s in them. I don’t even know why I love her so much, I just do.

Day 18: What is the most overrated movie?

So, since it came out, I really don’t see the hype behind The Dark Knight. I think it’s okay, sure, but is it the best movie in the Nolan Batman trilogy? No, that’s Batman Begins. People get so agitated when I say I don’t like it that much, but I just think it’s pretty alright.

Day 19: What is the most underrated movie? 

I really don’t see enough appreciation for Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping. It’s genuinely a hilarious film, and the soundtrack is amazing. I have a few close friends who love it, but outside of them I haven’t really heard of anyone else having seen it, which is a shame because it’s one of the funniest films I’ve ever seen.

Day 20: Who is your favourite character from a movie?

Oh wow, this is a tough question. In a general ‘this character is really fun’ way, it’s probably Marty McFly. The Back to the Future films probably aren’t deep enough to have any properly meaningful character development, but Marty is a really fun character anyway!

Day 3: Your favourite action/adventure movie

I kind of struggled with this question as I wasn’t sure what defines the genre, but after looking on IMDB I’ve come up with an answer!

My favourite action/adventure film is Back To The Future. I was fairly late in watching BTTF, having my first viewing at around 19. Since then, it’s become a film that is really close to my heart, and I’ve watched it multiple times. I was lucky enough to be given a press pass to the Secret Cinema event when that was on, and I loved every moment of it.

Through conventions I’ve met both Michael J. Fox and Christopher Lloyd too, which is really cool! (Though looking at the photos now, they’re pretty bad ones of me!)

Secret Cinema presents Back to The Future: The Verdict

Sub_Film2

After nearly a week of cancellations, the Secret Cinema finally opened its doors to legions of Back To The Future fans on Thursday 31st July. The event, which saw the building of the fictional town of Hill Valley from the hit movie, and stage the Hill Valley Fair, was held in a secret London location. Though punters were sceptical in the lead up to the event, and on the journey from the unmentionable train station to the event itself, all doubts were erased as soon as you set foot onto the property.

Secret Cinema really live up to their name, and all information was withheld until the last possible minute, including the location of the event which was emailed out to revellers just the day before. Unusually for a Secret Cinema event, the film was disclosed which helped to create the hype – normally customers don’t even know what film they’re watching until it rolls on the night.

Armed with dress codes and new identities, attendees could put in as much, or as little, effort as they liked. The result was overwhelming, and it made you feel a part of something special. The word ‘immersive’ has been paraded around a lot in relation to the event, but rightly so.
