Moviedays 2010

This time no visit to London for me... but a visit to Germany! After a 3,5 hours drive and a 30 minutes breakfast I arrived in Braunschweig together with fellowcollector Rene for a convention called Moviedays. It was the second time this convention was being held in Germany and the first time I went to pay it a visit. Like woth almost every other convention I drove over there to meet some special guests, not to buy some memorabilia. Well offcourse that can be nice as too :-)

There are always people at those conventions I've already met, but sometimes there are still people at these small(er) shows whom I didn't have to pleasure of meeting (yet). This time there were even some actors I was dying to meet for years now!

Sean Patrick Flanery and Norman Reedus, who play the lead in the cult classic The Boondock Saints and it's sequel, flew over to Germany for this show to meet their fans. I cannot recall a single occasion were they appeared at a show for a signing so I was very lucky to meet them both this weekend.
Sean Patrick Flanery signed my poster of The Boondock Saints and my DVD-boxset of The Adventures of Young Indiana Jones which he really liked. Norman Reedus signed my poster of The Boondock Saints as well and I did a photoshoot with the two saints together which was great!
I was so happy to meet them that I even did a special boondock saints-photoshoot with to two of them together with many thanks to Stjepko!
The other actor I was very happy to meet was Tony Todd, best known for his starring role as Candyman in the Candyman-movies. For me he signed the DVD-cover of The Rock and my poster of "24" in which he plays villain General Benjamin Juma. After the signing we did a photoshoot together. And because he really liked what he was doing we did another one!
Alex Vincent, who played Andy Barclay in Child's Play 1 & 2 signed my DVD-cover of Child's Play and posed for a picture.
After that Rene also got his picture back with Norman and Sean and he wasn't happy, because he looked like Mr. Ed on the picture, after a long discussion and a little help from Stjepko (there he is again!) he was able to get a new one... I also decided to go talk to John Rhys-Davies about his part in Anaconda 3 & 4. It was a very nice (and long conversation) which ended by John Rhys-Davies calling Rene "a disgrace". After this very nice conversation we drove back to Holland and we managed to catch every possible traffic jam possible, which made our ride back a very unpleasant one of 5 hours!

Holy shit, is dit een uit de hand gelopen hobby of is der een rede dat je bij al die premieres aanwezig bent? (zakelijk bv).

Anyway, respect hoor, a true hunter indeed ;-)
