Nordling And John Ary Wrap Up Fantastic Fest 2012! "Better Than Christmas!"
I'm so sorry I had to duck out before the post-Fantastic Fest party festivities. Just know that for all those I've talked to this week - fans of the site, friends, fellow critics - this has been one of the most rewarding weeks of my career here at Ain't It Cool. I'm so happy that I shared this week with so many wonderful people.
Fantastic Fest truly is an "astonishing festival," to quote Lana Wachowski, and I have to say that meeting the Wachowskis last night was one of those perfect moments that only happens here. I think CLOUD ATLAS is an important cinematic work, and I can't wait to see it again. But that wasn't the only great film I saw - here's John Ary and I to talk about the amazing movies we saw this week.
Counting down the days until next year already, and I still have more coverage and reviews to write about. If you're sick of Fantastic Fest coverage at this point - tough. Strap in.

Any idea when, and where I can see that Shining doc? I have to see that.

The guy just doesn't have the face or voice to really be entertaining on camera, even if he has pretty decent taste.

Did I miss an AICN review? Danger 5 is the ultimate awesome.

Does this mean one of you will be scribbling down something longer later on, or was it the festival equivalent of a speedbump between 'Cloud Atlas' and 'Looper'?

See, you should have done that first. :)

I unfortunately missed Danger 5 and am now regretting it.

Nordling tosses around the word masterpiece like a dickhead. Can't wait to read his review of the MASTERPIECE Alex Cross. I bet Matthew Fox was revolutionary and Tyler Perry's performance is transcendent! Cock.
