Post-BTSNAT BK Style

After crashing back at Noah's home sometime just before 6AM, we were back up and at 'em within a few hours for brunch at Enoteca with Brian Kelley and Rusty. Quite an excellent brunch too. We decided we might as well follow up BTSNAT with, what else, more movies!

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

Having not seen Sean Byrne's 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.
