Film Fan Fridays for Friday May 25, 2007!!!

Hello Film Fans and Fanatics!

Happy Friday everyone! Well, we have a fair share of new releases as well as four festivals this week, lots to choose from which I know I always like. Choice is a great thing. One interesting thing to note is that Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End had some showings on Thursday the 24th, however all the info states it being released on May 25. Sometimes this happens and they do a late night or midnight show, but the ones I saw listed were more along the lines of 8pm. Bizarre! Also, Pirates has had very few reviews but there is lots out for some of our limited releases such as the critically acclaimed Once and Bug, as well as the Canadian The French Guy. What will you choose?
