Film Fan Fridays for Friday June 22, 2007!!!

Hello Film Fans and Fanatics!

Interesting mish mash of films with week ranging from the inspiration sport film Gracie to 1408 a thriller based on the Steven King story. In between those we have the highly acclaimed A Mighty Heart staring Angelina Jolie and the biblically inspired comedy Evan Almighty. That’s a lot of might! I am curious to see Eagle vs. Shark from New Zealand, as director’s short Two Cars, One Night was quite phenomenal. If you are looking for something that is already hit the theatres I have on good authority that Pierrepoint: The Last Hangman is an excellent film. So much to choose from!

I really want to see the Stephen King movie but I doubt we'll have time this week. Next week we're totally seeing Die Hard or Sicko, haven't decided which but both look amazing.

I've only seen the posters so far for Sicko, but Michael Moore does tend to make provocative films, I am sure it will be interesting!

I've heard it's quite entertaining, I can't wait. Oh, I saw 1408 last night and it was GREAT! Finally a movie I really enjoyed this summer. I recommend it. It is scary but it isn't gory the way most movies are these days.
