Two days ago my pops and I went to the premiere of Bounty. I went for two reasons, my pops went for one.
The two reasons I went for were:
1. My buddy filmed it. Completely have to support my friends.
2. I’m in it. So you can forget reason number one. I really don’t give a shit that my buddy filmed it. I’m in it, and that’s all that matters.
My dad went for reason number two, as well.
I’m not going to get in what Bounty is about, other than it’s a faux documentary in the style of Blair Witch (minus shakey cam) + “Cops” + “Dog the Bounty Hunter”. Plus some blood and guts towards the end there. I’ll just leave it at that. Get it when it comes out. Don’t worry, I’ll let you know.
So, any who, it was a pretty damn good time. Like I said, my pops came up, but I also saw a ton of people I either haven’t seen in a while or don’t get to see as often as I’d like. There were people I expected to see there, like Joe, Zig, Anne, Kevin, the stars and crew of Bounty (many of which I’m friends with from being on the sets of Kevin’s films) and a slew of other people. But there were also people that I was either surprised to see, or was glad could come out like JP and Dan and Court (who came out on her birthday which was pretty damn cool).
(On a complete side note, I happened to park in the “No Drug Use Allowed” garage. What are the odds. 😆 )
The movie itself was a lot of fun. I really had no idea what it was about, only the basic premise (a team of bounty hunters that are being followed by a documentary crew stumble across something pretty damn dangerous) and that my house and myself were in it. I honestly had contemplated reviewing the film for the site, but then I realized when I raved about it and gave it the five stars it most definitely deserves, people might think I’m biased. I’m not, of course, and would I really be lying if “Under the Bed Fugitivie” really made that movie everything it was? I’m quite sure those that saw it would agree with me. That pimp daddy has skills, baby.
Quote of the night? Easily from my father. When talking about the movie on the way home we were discussing a scene in which a girl comes out of a bathroom naked. He said, “I liked it went the camera kept showing the boobs. It added realism to the documentary because that’s what I would have been filming.” My thoughts exactly, pops.
So when Bounty comes out, be it limited or wide release, make sure you pick up a copy. You’ll be supporting low-budget filmmakers, have a good movie in your hands and have the opportunity to see one handsome motherfucker on your TV screen. Don’t worry, I’ll give you a time stamp. You can count on that.
It’s all about the modesty.
