Hello Film Fans and Fanatics!!!
We have a couple of heavy hitters this week with Bobby and Volver. I am surprized to see that Volver is in limited release, I though an Almodóvar film would be on more screens. It will be on my list to see for sure, just as The History Boys is - I just can't resist inspirational teacher flicks. Add to that it's British and based on a play, I'm so hooked. For those looking for a tone, or should I say tune? check out Jack Black and Kyle Gass in Tenacious D in The Pick of Destiny.
The rational behind our mid-week releases last week has now become clear... It was US Thanksgiving on the 23rd. Happy Turkey Day to those celebrating, have a good long weekend.
Have a great weekend!!
