JAY & SILENT BOB STRIKE BACK...

I was lucky enough to get the opportunity to hang out with a couple of schmoes from our site (Quentin and TheNuke aka T.J. and Luke) and was even luckier that these crazy bastards went out of their way to get the few tickets that were going around for the screening of "Jay & Silent Bob..." that night, to which they invited me with their extra pass. BTW, Kevin and Jason Mewes were also sitting in our theatre as we watched the movie with a slew of other hardcore fans, and pretty much everyone there had a blast! (although I'm pretty sure that Jason slept through most of it (or "passed out", not too sure). BTW, our very own Quentin raced to shake Kevin's hand and thank him for his great work and I was right there to snap a picture of the two as it went down. See below:

THE MOVIE WEBMASTERS PANEL

Alright, so even though this is the second year in a row that nobody decided to invite my sorry ass onto this panel, I thought that I would go check this panel out anyway, seeing as my man Garth (from Dark Horizons) would be there. Well, unlike last year, when Harry Knowles (from AICN) and Patrick Sauriol (from Coming Attractions), the two big cheeses in regards to independent movie sites on the Net, were there and had a little fun at each others expense, this year’s panel was a lot less interesting and actually pretty boring. I was hoping to see some conversations about the future of the industry, the advertising debacle on the Net this year, the relationships with the studios, publicists, etc, but it was more like a panel about each person’s favorite movie, favorite story, favorite scoop, etc…

Anyway, it was also weird not to see the dude from the IMDb on the panel, and a couple of folks on it who might not have fit all that (one of the sites was recently bought out by an actual studio and another wasn’t really a “movie site” at all—more like an entertainment site). But alas, I’m probably just bitter because they ignored our cool little thingie over here. All in all, I don’t think that the panel will be back next year either way (unless the “big names” return from last year and talk about more interesting things).

JASON X TRAILER

I finally got to see the trailer for “Jason X” and what else can I say but…BRING IT ON! The film looks like a total departure for the series. It takes place on a spaceship, the costumes are very colorful, there seems to be a lot of "bang, bang" action and the "upgraded" version of Jason looks like The Terminator's endo-skeleton but on steroids. The trailer sells the film as a rollercoaster ride. I highly doubt that it will be scary but then again Jason stopped being scary after Part 4. Yes, boys and girls Mr. Voorhees goes the action way. I smell fun...hope the gore stays in...

ELVIRA’S HAUNTED HILLS

I always dug Cassandra Petersen’s Elvira thang. I like her dry wit and her bobbly cleavage. She showed up at the Con in good spirits to introduce her second feature film ELVIRA’S HAUNTED HILLS. The film was independently financed and that’s basically what she’s been doing for all of these years: getting it to the screen. The seats were uncomfortable, the sound was bad and the film was a rough-cut, but I still got a few perks out of the movie.
