The lot of us were eyeing BK's StreetDance 3D (2010) blu-ray last night so we agreed to give it a spin. Hot damn. This flick gives Step Up 3D a run for its money. It's street dance mixed with ballet in a very formulaic storyline. Definitely loads of fun if not quite as good as SU3D. I dusted up a few times from the pure joy of it. Surge are so awesome. "S" 7.6/10
The Loved Ones (2009), Brian was game giving it yet another re-watch (had to be his 4th or 5th time). I'd been wanting to see this from the first early word out of SXSW. While not entirely perfect as a teenage hostage Aussie horror flick it does have its moments and I really like this film immensely. A few memorable scenes make me look forward to screening this at a future movie night. 7.5/10
We left to grab some sandwiches and returned to view The Disappearance of Alice Creed (2009), which none of us had seen. I think it lives up to the small buzz its generated as a competent and compact thriller. Nearly all of the film takes place in one setting. Completely forget that the woman was Gemma Arterton. Cool seeing Eddie Marsan again. Good watch. 7/10
After that, Noah and I said our goodbyes and headed home so we could catch up on the day and crash. A very nice way to wind down post-BTSNAT and to close my weekend in Austin. Thanks again to Brian and Noah for their generosity. Really made me wish I lived nearby to enjoy more times like that.
