Hello Film Fans and Fanatics!
Welcome to Film Fan Fridays for Friday January 2, 2009!
Happy New Year and welcome to 2009! It is a really quiet week for releases, with Revolutionary Road being our only release hitting the theatres and it is a limited release screening at just one location. The good news is that the buzz on it has been positive so far and I know I'll be checking it out.
If you are looking to catch up on 2008 releases I'd recommend checking out The Bloor which has a fantastic selection of films programmed in January to get us ready for awards season showing many films that have graced top (10 or otherwise) lists for 2008 such as Let the Right One In, Man on Wire, Happy-Go-Lucky, Wall-E, The Dark Knight and My Winnipeg. Some are even the films that are on my list of favourites from 2008! Haven't made your list yet? Wondering what came out in 2008? Look no further and check out these handy dandy lists of 2008 releases: alphabetically or by release date.
If you are done with 2008 and are looking to the future I have something new in store for you! Just added to Movie Moxie is an upcoming schedule of 2009 releases, with director & cast details as well as website, IMDb and trailer links when available. Release dates are all subject to change but it's always fun to look and see what is on the horizon.
Have a great first weekend of the year!
