Film Fan Fridays for Friday November 5, 2010!

Hello Film Fans and Fanatics!

Welcome to Film Fan Fridays for Friday November 5, 2010! I'm back from my trek in San Francisco and it was an absolutely lovely time attending my brother's wedding. It was a beautiful Halloween day overlooking the water and many good times were had and pictures were taken. Ye-haw!

Now that I'm back in the T-dot I've revised weeks last weeks titles and we are yet again in store for another huge slew of releases hitting the theatres this week!

In limited release this week we have a lot of real in the house starting with documentary A Drummer's Dream, then thrilled inspired by a true story of international espionage Fair Game starring Naomi Watts & Sean Penn and last up for Friday is the summer camp coming of age drama Summerhood. We also have the Thursday November 4, 2010 releases of Le Pere de Mes Enfants / The Father of My Children which is also currently available on Netflix.ca and documentaries Strange Powers: Stephin Merritt and the Magnetic Fields and the extremely acclaimed Marwencol.

In wide release this week we have the Tyler Perry's latest For Colored Girls based on the stage play, 3D animated film Megamind, the Robert Downey Jr. & Zack Zach Galifianakis comedy Due Date and two Bollywood titles with 70's throwback Action Replayy and second sequel Golmaal 3. We also have an oddly placed November Wednesday release next Wednesday November 10, 2010 with Morning Glory.

Another thing to check out this week is Toronto Reel Asian International Film Festival which starts on Tuesday. I'll be there! Be sure to check out my daily coverage at Movie Moxie from November 9 - 14, 2010.

Have a great weekend!
