Film Fan Fridays for Friday June 23, 2006!!

Hello Film Fans and Fanatics!!!

Well it is a much quieter week on the release front! Two releases today with Click as well as the basketball documentary The Heart of the Game. A few days later we have one of the most anticipated action films of the summer with Superman Returns. I have to say I am very surprized at its release date being so close to but not on the long weekend (Canadian as well as US). There is a late night preview on Tuesday at quite a few of the theatres if you just wait til Wednesday.

Peeve of the week: Reviews that start with "Had the final gripping moments of..."

Well that is about all I have to say about this weeks releases as I've been getting up to date on the following reviews: District B13 / Banlieue B13, Sympathy for Mr. Vengence / Boksuneun naui geot, Three Times / Zui hao de shi guang, Waiting for Guffman, X-Men: The Last Stand

Have a great weekend!!

Shannon
