Hello Film Fans and Fanatics!!
Interesting combination of films this week, 2 sequels both with ice references (Ice Age: The Meltdown and Basic Instinct 2). Or ice pick references... We also have Three Times which has received critical acclaim and was nominated for awards at both Cannes and the Hong Kong Film Awards. I don't even know what to say about Slither so I might just leave it at that. Don't forget the Genie nominated Six Figures starts in limited release as well. Either Six Figures or Three Times would be my pick for the week.
Have a great weekend!
