Long day today! After 3 consecutive movies I felt a bit fatigued. My eyes were straining hard during “The Happiness of the Katakuris,” didn’t help that I really didn’t enjoy that film – but I’ll post my reactions in a bit.

Today I’m most excited for “Color Out of Space” starring Nicolas Cage and adapted from a short story by H.P. Lovecraft – right up my alley. My groups is going to see “The Golden Glove” in the 2:30 slot, but I don’t do well with excessive gore, so I chose “Happy Face.”

It’s not that I can’t handle the gore, it’s just that I get annoyed when it’s gratuitous. A shot lingers on blooding, organs gushing too long and I think “Okay, I get it.”

Really looking forward to the debates tonight too! This being my first legit film festival I see the panels as being a way to give my eyes a break from the screen. Also I love a good debate.
