Film Fan Fridays for Friday March 2, 2007!!!!

Hello Film Fans and Fanatics!!!

Ahh, here we are in Post Oscar-ness. I thought it was a really fun one this year, Ellen was a lovely host and there were a lot of fun moments. Forest Whitaker's acceptance speech was my favourite. I was very surprized The Departed won best pic and well as got the most wins, but it was an unpredictable year! Congratulations to all the winners, and all the nominee's! It was a pretty interesting year.

Looking ahead, or in the now depending on how you look at it, we can have a look at this weeks releases. Mixed bag this week, the only one I had ever heard of outright was Zodiac. We also have the Canadian film Missing Victor Pellerin, a martial arts film from director Tsui Hark Seven Swords and biker buddy movie Wild Hogs. There is also Black Snake Moan, which has received some critical acclaim and although appears intriguing I think I will give it a pass as it also appears quite dark. Actually, all of the films this week do. Now, that is the way to recover from the February blahs! Maybe I'll just go watch Gidget instead...

Have a great weekend!!!

R wants to see the motorcycle movie, LOL. It may be fun actually. I really want to see Zodiac but I may wait until video. We saw The Number 23, I bet it isn't getting great reviews but we enjoyed it and I'm glad I saw it before hearing too much about it. Some of the story telling elements were wonderful.
