Film Fan Fridays for Friday October 13th, 2006!

Hello Film Fans and Fanatics!!!

More scary films are being released the closer we get to Halloween with this weeks The Grudge 2, looks pretty scary if you ask me. A different kind of scary, well for some that is, would be American Hardcore a documentary on American Punk Rock from 1980-86 - sounds good to me! The warnings included crude content, I wonder what that could be.

My surprize again to a limited release this week with The Queen starring Helen Mirren. I've heard her performance is, as expected, excellent. Also in limited release is Infamous, as well as the Canadian film Kardia, and some blockbusters to round out the week with The Marine and Man of the Year.

Have a great weekend!!
