Nice work on collating the votes.

You know there's a poll function on the forum? Maybe might have been easier to post a poll so people could just poke buttons instead of typing. :lol:
Thanks, I did not know that. Will use next time...

Re: Terrified

8/10 - Also one of my top picks of the festival. There was something different and attractive about the characters and the plot which kept me engaged throughout. And, I enjoyed it even more home at night, because as predicted by the director in the intro, "I scared!!", thinking of that little boy ha...

Re: What Keeps You Alive

7/10 - Generally enjoyed this and even though the plot rumbles a bit, it never seemed too long or too superfluous.

Re: Summer of 84

8/10 - Nice, unpretentious plot with strong acting by the kids. Strong reminiscences of Disturbia. A pleasure to watch

Re: Upgrade

8/10 - Pretty fun to watch, with spectacular visual effects for such a modest budget. Deserves wide release.

5/10

Pretty weak overall, although I actually enjoyed the Hungarian story (last one) very much.

Best 5 of the festival

A lot to choose from for my top 5, even though I saw nothing on disco and I missed Climax. That said,

1. Anna and the Apocalypse
2. Incident in a Ghost Land
3. Upgrade
4. Terrified
5. Ravers

Re: Strong Year?

Sorry, I also deeply disliked Hell is Where the Home is. I am not necessarily hung on plot plausibility, but the sheer stupidity of this bunch was hard to watch.

Re: Strong Year?

For me, a stronger year than the last two or three. I enjoyed every movie I saw, with the only exceptions of Heretiks, Field Guide and Braid (my only walkout of the festival).

Re: Top Five FF17 Films

With 13 votes in I am ready to call this scientific and rule the overall public's choice for top 5 films of FF17. Obviously I have too much time on my hands until London FF18. Lowlife / 68 Kill (8 votes) Killing Ground / Double Date (7 votes) Better Watch Out (6 votes) Worthy runner ups: Tragedy Gir...

Lowlife
68 Kill

Re: Best and worst film?

Best: Lowlife.
Original script, great humour, great acting, complex characters and much more
Worst: Attack of the adult babies.
Terrible idea, badly executed. Hard to watch. Just quite terrible.

A big thank you

Again to Ian, Paul, Alan and Greg and to all the FF family. It is a wonderful feeling to come back year after year to find the same dedication and enthusiasm.

And a wonderful FF17 program, much stronger than the last two editions. And back @ Leicester!! What else could one hope for.

Thanks again
