First Entry

What a rip-off the Jameson Film Festival is... 8 euro for membership and another 9 for each film.. It didn't even have any big celebrities or guests. There is zero atmosphere in the films i've seen, the only thing that feels different is when a festival representative would thank us for coming prior to the screening.
Still, I guess it's a good launch pad for new Irish films such as 'the Mighty Celt' and the controversial '9 Songs.' I've got 2 more films to watch this weekend: Kung Fu Hustle (which i've seen 5 times!) and Life Aquatic-Steve Zissou.
