Film Fan Fridays for Friday July 13, 2007!!!

Hello Film Fans and Fanatics!

Welcome to Film Fan Fridays for Friday July 13, 2007! Oh... Friday the 13th, scary! With the exception of Captivity, all of our releases this week are limited releases. Were they scared away by the release of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, perhaps? I think maybe. Unfortunately I don't have a lot of news to share as I've been scared away from researching to avoid inadvertantly finding out anything about the latest adventures at Hogwart's until I've seen the film.

In other film related news, the TIFF 07 ( site is live and passes are now available for this year's Toronto International Film Festival. I'm really looking forward to this year which will be the first time I will be able to focus 100% on just seeing the films (and posting about it!), and will not have other obligations other than things such as eating and sleeping. Exciting times ahead!

Have a great weekend!
