The sign of things to come

Well this is my first post on my new blog here on Blogger. I hope to post some interesting stories, comments and articles as and when I can find the time.  Today's short blog will be all about films.  Enjoy...

Firstly, news of the Belfast Film Festival.  The 2010 programme was released today and it is packed full of interesting cinema from across the globe to go and see, as well as some excellent-looking films from Ireland.  The festival has been extended to 16 days this year to mark the 10th anniversary of the event.  I've had a quick look through the list of films and have got a 'short' list of 22 films to see - better narrow that down slightly to suit the budget!

On other film matters, me and my fiancee are going to see the new Jean-Pierre Jeunet film Micmacs on Thursday at the Queen's Film Theatre in Belfast.  I liked Amelie and Delicatessen although Ellen was not so keen, so it will be interesting to see what she thinks of this new one...we've seen some 'interesting' films recently, although none of them have really blown us away so a good one would be particularly welcome.  Actually, the best film we have seen recently is Taken with Liam Neeson. The story is typical of Luc Besson, but intriguing nonetheless.  Neeson in particular makes a really good tough guy.

Well that is all for now. More soon...
