Re: Overall Thoughts

Some of my own random thoughts: The standard was very high overall this year. On the flipside it meant that it's difficult to pick standouts as I enjoyed pretty much everything. A couple of lowpoints, but nothing major. There seemed a definite shift more towards the 'fantastic' and less straight up ...

there really isn't much of a separation between talent and fan
Case in point last year, when I came back from the loo in the Phoenix to find Barbara Crampton had joined the group I was with. :eek:

Maybe they'll sit down and have a picnic for most of the running time, being nice and still! ;)
That's how the film got its title, they sit on a picnic blanket with their Boots on the Ground. :D

Does anyone know how shaky the camera work will be for Boots on the Ground
It's filmed exclusively by body/helmet-mounted cameras, so I'd imagine high shaky levels.

Re: Site advertising

There are no hard and fast rules as far as I'm concerned. I generally look at self-promotion posts based on their relevance to FF attendees and whether or not there seems to be any adverse reaction from forum members. It's not like the forum is a hive of activity these days, so being overly heavy-ha...

Re: A question about merchandise and Autographs/signing sessions

This year, as it's back in Leicester Square, I was wondering are there planned signing sessions? Particularly for the US guests who don't make it over here that often. My mate wants to meet Kane Hodder and preferably have a photo/autograph, but he can't make the Conversation on the Sunday, but will...

Re: Final Night Soiree - is there one?

I was actually going to post the name of a good Metal/Alternative bar (given there is a decent sized Horror/Roock/Metal crossover, most the bars I'm thinking of are mainstream friendly, by the way) close to Leicester Square, open Until 3am every night except Sunday night, plus a good Metal club on ...

if you walk towards Shake Shack opposite is a shwarma place...they do a very good chicken shwarma.
No idea what a shwarma is, except for seeing it in the after credits scene on Avengers Assemble, but I'm gonna give that a try this year.

Good point on Herman Ze German.

In fact, Old Compton St, which is only a few mins walk away, is a great location for eats. Everything from cream cakes to meat.
That sounds like a Carry On sketch.
They do a really meaty sausage. Matron!

Re: Food

The Tokyo Diner, which is sort of behind the Empire just on the border of Chinatown does great Japanese food. Quick service and reasonably priced.

Also, if you fancy a Burrito, Chipotle is a five-minute walk away on St. Martin's Lane.

Re: Train Travel into London Euston

Nice one Kris, I think I bagged a cut-price first class ticket last year thanks to your heads-up!
