So ICE FEST 2012 is over! I’m a bit sad that it’s come to a close, but I had a ton of fun watching and reviewing the movies in one big block of Ice. It’s been so long since I’d done a two-week series (about two years since the original SE Event, A Fistful of Djangos), and I had forgotten just how much fun it was to watch the movies as a group. It’s times like these that I get to fulfill my dreams of running and scheduling a theater, and even though the turnout here is always somewhat disappointing to me, I’m truly grateful for everyone that read the reviews and left a comment.
Unfortunately, I still did not receive any links from anyone, so apparently I was the only one that needed some Icy relief from the furious rays of the sun… but don’t fret! I have assembled a couple of reviews that should keep you nice and Icy if my block of nine films wasn’t enough to satiate your urge for coolness.
Nostra over at My Film Views got a chance to see Ice T’s directorial début, Something from Nothing: The Art of Rap right before ICE FEST kicked off! I can’t wait to see this one, and when it drops on DVD there’s a chance that SE will freeze over once again. Anyway, check out his review!
The Daily Grindhouse posted up a trailer and a short write-up on ICE FEST opener: New Jack City!
Don’t forget to check out Movieguide.org’s vintage review of Surviving the Game from 1994! It’s interesting to read a take on the film coming from a completely different perspective than my own.
Perhaps you found my review of Trespass stupid and amateurish! If so, here’s Roger Ebert’s review from 1992!
And at this point I spent an hour or so trying to find some more links that were both relevant and interesting to read and found nothing that really did anything for me. Oh well.
So this ends ICE FEST, be sure to come back next week when we’re back to normal and I unleash my reviews of Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy. OH YEAH!
