The Summer Screen has been a fantastic event every year so far, definitely recommend it! And I wonder if we'll be having some guest appearances again this year, Mr Wright ... ? wink.gif

It's open to anyone.

Oooh 'Walk the Line', ahhhh 'Rear Window', woooo 'Rushmore'.

I have to say I'd rather see any of those on the big screen than 'Hot Fuzz' again. 'Rear Window' would look incredible on a cinema screen and I've never seen 'Rushmore' (one of my favourite films) on a big screen. 'Walk the Line' is one of the best cinema experiences I've had, the prisoners stamping their feet at the beginning gave me goosebumps - and it's just not the same on DVD.

I'm almost tempted to take that week off work. Or at least Monday so I can go to see 'Rushmore'...

Also, 'Knocked up' up is supposed to be amazingly funny - the reviews are incredible.
Raven
I must say, I'd like to see Rear Window on the big screen as well, and 2001 again.

Speaking of which . . .

I'd like to go to a number of the screenings, but I can only do the 2 Fridays. I'm debating whether to go to the Descent/Thing screening. I've not seen either of them, would anyone recommend them?

I'm going to the HF/PB screening so see you there anyone else who's going. I just checked the listings on Ticketmaster and looks like that one's all sold out, unless they get any returns/release more tickets between now and then.

YES!

Well, I enjoyed The Descent; it's no classic but it was fun. The Thing, on the other hand, is a masterpiece.
CazBag
Cheers Nic, I think you've made my mind up on that. smile.gif

I asked Edgar on his MySpace whether he will be presenting Hot Fuzz at this year's Film4 Summer Screen, and he said:

I shall not be at Somerset House this year, which is a crying shame. Would have loved to have seen the film with a big crowd.

But am sending a little surprise to show everyone in my absence!


Intriguing!!!

Is anyone else from here going?
AusChick
Would that I could.
Looking forward to hearing all about it from you though!

Glad I took your word for it Nic! I went on Friday and LOVED The Descent! It's definitely one for the big screen! It got a great reception from the 2000 screaming crowd which must've been fantastic for Neil Marshall who was there too. The Thing was great fun. It was really funny at the start where the helicopter flies in, a helicopter came flying over our heads at the same time so everyone cheered it. Definitely added to the sound effects laugh.gif

That's a real shame you couldn't get a ticket to the HF screening. I think it sold out pretty much straight away.

If anyone is going to any of the screenings during the week, just be warned that they're being really strict with glass this year. When I went on Friday people were being asked to empty the contents of their jars they'd brought as part of their picnics out into plastic cups, and wine from bottles too. If anyone had perfume, then that was confiscated. Metal cans are also banned. Plastic bottles brought in are ok though.

So ... I went to the Hot Fuzz / Point Break double bill last night at Somerset House, and still stand by the opinion that this has got to be one of the best places to see films. It really is a fantastic venue. Great screen, great sound, fantastic surroundings and always a great crowd. It was absolutely packed last night. For those of you that haven't been there before, it looks like this:



Osymyso did a sterling job on the dj front. There were a couple of suprises too. One being Mr Wright's 'Don't' trailer being shown (cheers for that Edgar), and the second suprise was Mr Frost being there to present the 2 films! Big thank you to Nick! Good job!

Here you go folks, with love from me to you, on YouTube: Nick Presents Hot Fuzz at Somerset House
AusChick
Wow! What an amazing venue.
Sounds like it was a fantastic night.
Thanks heaps for posting that video for us Caz.

Nick is so cute in it. And funny as ever.
Living in Quentin Tarantino's house. What a cunt! laugh.gif

Great stuff.



And once again I miss Summer!

It really is but you have to sit on a bloody hard stone floor, which does your arse no favours.


Well...unless you're me and you get a rather comfortable silver chair. tongue.gif happy.gif

After doing all these Q&As and all sorts of stuff, you would think he would overcome his nervousness.

He did really well by himself.
Anni
Yeah he was great! I could tell slightly that he was nervous though which he really need not be. He doesn't need Edgar or Simon for backup. tongue.gif
dolfyn
Aw, Nick did so well, even though he was "kind of naked"! hehehee. He was cute. happy.gif I liked Edgar's amusing letter, too. Those guys are so bloody funny. biggrin.gif

Feel the love.

AusChick
Nick is pure comedy genius encased inside a lovely cuddly monkey.
I can understand he would feel a little nervous after being used to have all three of them there for the last 5 months, but he didn't need to be nervous. He holds his own perfectly.
AusChick
^ Damn I can't edit now and that sentence is terrible.
Please imagine it with grammatical corrections.
Thanks

Now, see, if you come prepared with a blanket and cushions to sit on then you're ok.

I had to shoot off on holiday on Saturday and YouTube was being incredibly slow uploading so only had time to upload Nick presenting Hot Fuzz before I went away. So here's the second part: Nick Frost Presents Point Break.
