Love The Beast Tickets GET!
It’s not very often that I get excited about movies coming out. Sure there have been some great movies that have come out over the past 2 years, but for 2009 I would say there is one movie. Eric Bana’s Love The Beast. Technically its not really a movie but more of a documentary film about Eric Bana and his 25 year long relationship with his “Beast” (or in other words his car). Here’s an excerpt from Madman’s Facebook page:
Eric Bana casts himself in his perfect role: exploring the meaning of a 25-year-long relationship with his first car, “The Beast”, and ultimately the importance of the bonds that form through a common passion. Filmed over 2 years, we follow Eric on an – unexpectedly – emotional journey from inside the race car to the surreal world of the red carpet as Eric considers the importance of family, friends and what it means to keep your dreams alive. LOVE THE BEAST is as full of heart and the defining moments in life as it is about driving fast… really fast.
I first heard about the docufilm during last year’s Bathurst 1000 where Eric Bana was doing a plugin and previewed a small clip of it. At that point I knew I wanted to watch this film and that it won’t be something as horrendous as The Fast n Furious. Being a revhead myself, I can understand the relationship a person has with his car as my car is something special to me. I could go on about me and my car but I’ll leave that to another day.
Anyway Madman had a small promo on their Facebook page of giving away 5 double passes to see the movie. I don’t visit my Facebook often and wasn’t sure if I should enter, but gave it a chance anyway and within a few minutes got an email saying I won a double pass. Yesterday an envelope arrived with my tickets, but I thought it was a rather large envelope just for tickets. Opening it up I found a bunch of promo flyers, posters, stickers, and the two tickets. I’m not sure why I got so many flyers but oh wells. Anyone want a poster?
Even though it’s a double pass, unfortunately I can’t take my dear Erika. If this was an otaku world then that’s different. And if I had a girlfriend, I would want her to at least have some interest in cars. Anyway I’ll be taking good friend Roobar, even though he has no interests in cars he still came with me when I went to watch Top Gear Live. Plus who could say no to a free ticket? Too bad this ticket can only be used between Monday and Friday, wish I could use it on weekends.
And for those who actually have a slight interest in the film as well, here’s the trailer for it:
So thanks Madman Entertainment for the free tickets.
Also I hate trying to embed clips in posts. I should really upgrade my theme and WP.
