Tuesday, July 22, 2008
2. Repo: The Genetic Opera - Aaron Soto turned me on to this bizarre tale of a futuristic society where you can buy organs to prolong your life. But don't miss a payment or the repo man will come to take them back! & 'Nuff said. (Thursday, 9pm, Room 6B)
4. Harold and Kumar Escape to Guantanamo DVD Release - Dude, you gotta check out Kal Penn, John Cho and Mr. Doogie Howser himself, Neil Patrick Harris. No bongs allowed. (Sunday noon, Ballroom 20)
7. Summit Pictures - This will have a pair of gifted directors I would love to hear from: Paul McGuigan (who did the brilliantly nasty Gangster No. 1 ) and Alex Proyas (whose Dark City is a favorite of mine). (Thursday, 1:15pm, Hall H)
Bonus pick : Technically not a film but do not miss the Spaced Panel. The 1999 Brit-com by Shaun of the Dead's Simon Pegg and Edgar Wright is FINALLY coming out on DVD in the U.S. These guys are seriously funny. You will find the basis for both Shaun and Hot Fuzz in this series chock full of pop culture references. & (Friday, 12:30pm, Room 6A, with a late night screening of fan fav episodes, Friday, 10:15pm, Room 6A)
