Steamboy (Sat 13 Aug/Sun 14 Aug/Tue 16 Aug)

After all my bitching about Steamboy, the NFT are showing it before the London Film Festival. The minor issue is that it'll still cost about £12 but at least it's a couple of months sooner than I was expecting to see it.

I'm only interested in seeing that particular film as I've got all the others on DVD (bar Kakurenbo).

Voices of a Distant Star is about the teenage girl who is drafted into a distant inter-stellar war and the effect that relativity has on her relationship with her boyfriend who is left back on Earth. Surprisingly heart-wrenching for such a short film. I wish it could have been a feature-length film, and now that Makoto Shinkai has established himself, perhaps he will go back and remake it.

Perfect Blue is a disturbing and slightly mind-bending thriller/horror about a pop idol who leaves her band to become a film star and then gets stalked by a serial killer. Millennium Actress is a tale of a famous film star who is interviewed to mark the closing down of her old film studio. More Kon weirdness in that the interviewers themselves are in the flashbacks to the past and I think they interact as well (but I haven't seen it so can't say for sure). Tokyo Godfathers is a heart-warming Christmas tale about three homeless people and an abandoned baby, and is about as sappy as you can imagine but lovely for all that.

So, Steamboy. I'm up for it. How about those of you who didn't make the SF Channel Film Festival in February?

Lal's Birthday Party - Saturday July 2nd 3pm
Okay, it's coming up to the end of June again and I'm going to have a party of some description. Not a big blow-out barbecue like last year, but some kind of pub affair in London. I haven't actually decided on a venue yet, so more on that
later. I'd just like to get an idea of who is coming.

Feel free to bring a friend, but if you do, let me know how many you are bringing just so I can keep track of numbers. :)

Batman Begins - Thursday 9pm at the Waterloo IMAX
On behalf of talvalin:

"I'm a self-avowed Batman fanboy, so seeing the new Batman film at the
IMAX has to be done. I have no problem with the £12.50 ticket price,
but I imagine that more than a few people will beg to differ.

If you're interested, then give me a shout."
