With this week, Summer 2010 has officially gone. We are into September and here in Austin at Reject HQ, the temperature is back down into the 90s and we’re looking forward to seeing all of our genre-loving friends at the end of the month for Fantastic Fest. As you’ll begin to notice, we will soon become very preoccupied with what’s happening in the war room over at the Alamo Drafthouse, where the final slate for Fantastic Fest 2010 seems to be coming together quickly. But for now, there are still films in theaters and news from around the globe that have caught our interest. That interest was quickly turned into articles filled with biting commentary. Those articles are assembled here, in a weekly column we like to call The Week That Was…
Other Things That Happened
Dispatch from Reject HQ
As many of you know, I’ve been in the process of moving this week, so my own presence on the site has been severely lacking. That’s probably a welcomed change for most of you, but for some it may be cause for concern. Luckily, we’ve still got the best damn writing staff in the galactic alliance, and the likes of Cole Abaius, Rob Hunter, Robert Fure and many others have been cranking out excellent content. They are doing so well that I might just extend my absence another week… (If I didn’t think they’d put out a hit on me, I’d totally do it.) More from me, including the resurgence of This Week in Blu-ray, this coming week.
Comment of the Week
“Pretty much one of the worst lists I’ve ever read”
Azreal on The 30 Best Films of the Decade, a conversation that still rages daily. Mostly, it’s just random Google searchers who stop for a moment to explain to us why our site is called “Film School Rejects.” We never tire of such follies.
Back next week for more shenanigans in The Week That Was.
