Film Fan Fridays for Friday December 25, 2009

Hello Film Fans and Fanatics!

Welcome to Film Fan Fridays for Friday December 25, 2009! I'm sending this out to everyone a bit early as my family celebrates today, on Christmas Eve and I don't really plan on doing much tomorrow! It's a one in 7 years save leap year interference that we actually have new releases on Christmas Day. I've still never been to the theatre on that particular day but if that is your tradition it looks like you have some stellar choices this year!

There are no limited release this week, all four films that are opening are opening wide! Options of the week included the fantastical wonder that is The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus which I highly recommend. We also have the musical Nine which is a new version of Fellini's 8 1/2, the romantic divorce comedy It's Complicated and then of course we have the highly anticipated redux of Sherlock Holmes from Guy Ritchie starring Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law. Also already in theatres since Wednesday is Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel.

They certainly is something for everyone this week and whether you cozy up inside or visit the theatre I hope you have a lovely holiday weekend!

Shannon
