As usual, a link to Mad Hatter to start off. He has noted in previous years how his HotDocs coverage seems attract little attention so he has made sure he has put out all the stops this year to make sure it gets the attention it deserves. He has multiple podcasts associated with the festival and has already - pretty much daily - released reviews. So go there now!
Secondly, I have been privelidged to take part in two podcasts in the last couple of weeks. The distance the UK has from America constantly stops me from being able to take part in many instances. Additionally, most Saturday nights at 8pm I am rarely at my desk typing away - instead, out on the town drinking or crying myself to sleep as I realise I have no friends. But, for the LAMBcast about Scream 4, I managed to be back at 00.30 to take part and Nick Jobe woke him self up early to record a Demented Podcast titled The Simon and Jobe Show. Clever. Be warned, the Demented Podcast features an awful Jimmy Stewart impression (having listened to it, I am now aware that it needs work...) and has my attempt at The Tower... something I should have prepared much better for. Mental Note: Don't Choose 'Dream Films' as a subject speciality.
Thirdly, Fandango Groovers revied Luc Besson's latest film The Extraordinary Adventures of Adele Blanc-Sec. Now, I watched Leon for the first time last night and, I have a funny feeling it is better than this. Having said that, Fandango Groovers gave the film a great review... so if you are interested, have a gander!
