Hello Film Fans and Fanatics!!!
Well, not tons of choices this week and I am very surprized to see that here on Canada Day weekend there are no Canadian films! I am so aching for a good Canadian film and I don't think there is one out there right now. But, I will forgive as there is a film that involves fashion with The Devil Wears Prada. I laugh each and every time I see the preview, I will admit it. We also have The Road to Guantanamo which appears to blur the lines between drama and documentary and doing so with critical acclaim. Maybe films don't want to compete agains Superman Returns, which is not just playing in regular theatres but also is playing in IMAX 3-D. Hehe, 3-D haven't heard that one in a while.
Peeve of the week: When while waiting to watch a film in the theatre, rented or on cable you are shown previews, trailers, teasers and product placement ads for the films you are about to see.
Favorite line of the week: "The line up doesn't start unless some starts the line" - one guy to his friend the first two who could possibly start the line for Superman Returns in IMAX
Have a great Canada Day weekend!!
