Hello Film Fans and Fanatics!!
We have 5 new releases this week one of which I felt like I already saw the whole thing during the preview, yes that is Inside Man. I find it so strange when they do that with films that obviously are built around suspense. We also have Thank You For Smoking the most shocking title I have heard in a while, even if its tongue-in-cheek. The 2 Canadian releases are These Girls as well as Niagara Motel which from the poster I really was under the impression it was a film based on the show "This Is Wonderland", which it isn't - I think that must have been the day I got my eyes checked. Yeah, that's it. Last but not least we have Stay Alive a horror film based in gaming with a tag line of "You Die In Game - You Die For Real", obviously they forgot to check with any actual gamers cuz that *should* have been "You Die In Real Life" or IRL. I mean really what noob thought that up? w/e...
I've recently decided to take on a few film challenges as a part of my 101 things to do in 1001 days. One of which includes writing about all the films I see over the 1001 days, which I've started, another is seeing the next 5 films recommended to me so if you think there is a film out there that you think I'd like, now is your chance!
Have a great weekend!
