premieres and popcorn

I was at a film premiere today! (I know, I know, what a glamorous and classy life I do lead…). I was scratching my head wondering what to wear – was it time to dig out the taffeta ballgown and diamante tiara? But since the event was taking place in the Black Box, a trendy venue in Belfast’s hip and happening Cathedral quarter, I decided that crops and a denim jacket were more appropriate. Now, I was only there cos I’d met Em at Little Shop of Horrors, which I’d only been at because another hootoo friend had mentioned it on Facebook, so it was a real culmination of social networking improving my actual social life (glamorous and classy as it is…). Em had put in a lot of effort, and I was most impressed that she’d not only made popcorn, but also the cone holders for it. So impressed, in fact, that I made my own little movie when I got home.

And the film? Well, it was a spoof rockumentary in the Spinal Tap vein, with some great lines, and some rather good cinematography, showing just what can be done with today’s easily accesible technology. I particularly liked the final scene, where the 3 band members walked away from camera in slo-mo, before fading individually, back into the ether from whence they came (that’s enough pretentious film reviewer bollocks – Ed)
