Film Fan Fridays for Friday July 6, 2007!!!

Hello Film Fans and Fanatics!

So many releases this week from big releases to extremely limited releases, and everything in between. The big release bookend the week but neither are actually out on Friday. These are Transformers (just released) and Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (out next week). Although I want to see both the robots in disguise and witches and wizards get up to mischief, there is much more to explore this week. Numerous award winning films are in this week's bunch including Boy Culture, Bride of Silence and Romanzo Criminale. Critical acclaim has been recieved to both Werner Herzeg's Rescue Dawn as well as You Kill Me. Tough decisions to be made, are you up for them?

Have a great weekend!
