First Viewing of Shutter Island

The 11th Annual Butt-Numb-A-Thon (BNAT 1138) recently finished up at the Alamo Drafthouse in Austin, Texas. For those unfamiliar, it is a 24-hour film festival in celebration of Harry Knowles (of AICN)’s birthday. The invitation-only (by application) event features secret premieres, clips, and other entertainment. The top programming included a premiere of Martin Scorsese’s Shutter Island as well as early screenings of Kick-Ass, Avatar, Micmas, and Frozen. The new Iron Man 2 trailer was shown as well. Check out some reviews/impressions I’ve rounded up for the most well-received films, Kick-Ass and Shutter Island, as well as the full line-up and a recap by Knowles himself.

5. 1st screening of Martin Scorsese’s very nearly completed SHUTTER ISLAND, which I wrote a terrible review for – due to being rushed in my craziest week to get it up. I personally didn’t want to write one till after a second viewing. Brilliant movie – and thinks anyone that spoils anything of this film should be locked in a cell with Jackie Earle Haley. This film blew a lot of folks away! LOUD applause afterwards and great lobby buzz. Continued Child Death (multiple varieties) and Locket theme and Woman obsession.

Personally I can’t wait to see this film!
