The Week That Was: It’s All Peer Pressure and Paintball

The Week That WasHere at the new (and soon to be improved, I promise) Reject HQ we are in countdown mode for Fantastic Fest 2010. I believe that several of our team members — the likes of Fure, Hunter and Abaius — are packing their bags and getting ready for a week of greasy Drafthouse food, movies in not English and sleeping on a floor littered with beer bottles and piles of Pepto. So the next time I bring you the best of the week in The Week That Was, I may be under the influence of peer pressure and bad food. But until then, it’s business as usual here in Reject Land. And by business as usual, I’m of course referring to copious amounts of shenanigans as we continue to bring you the best, unbiased, no bull-shit, non directorial ball coddling coverage of the film industry on the web today. We also wrote some articles…

Other Things That Happened

Dispatch from Reject HQ

Last week I was very graciously asked to star alongside a talented group of folks in a bumper for Fantastic Fest’s infamous bumper contest. And despite a strange shoulder injury (which, if you follow me on Twitter you know all about by now because I’m a raging vagina who won’t shut up about it), it was a wonderful experience. I look forward to being able to share it with you at some point here on FSR. It will also satiate the fantasies of any of you who have read my reviews and subsequently dreamt of seeing me with half of my face smashed in. Admit it, it’s happened before. Just go back and read my review of Transformers, you’ll remember the feeling.
