Film Fan Fridays for Friday January 6, 2012

Hello Film Fans and Fanatics!

Welcome to Film Fan Fridays for Friday January 6, 2012! It's a really quiet week we have with only 2 releases here in Toronto which means it's great timing to check out Canada's Top Ten 2011, the 10 best Canadian films as decided by TIFF which plays at Lightbox this week and has lots of special guests included.

Our one limited release this week is Players, a Bollywood remake of the 2003 version of The Italian Job, which brings up the interesting question of if it's a remake of a remake, it it not in fact a remake of the original? I'm not sure but it's making my mind really think, which is a good thing

In wide release this week we have 1 film: The Devil Inside. It wouldn't be January without a supernatural film to get the year started, and with The Devil Inside exorcisms are on the menu with a personal history tale of a woman who researches them to hone on the truth of her own family history including her institutionalized mother who was exorcised many years ago.

That isn't much to choose from this week but if you are curious to what else we have at the year ahead I have created a 2012 Upcoming Films list, which pictures, synopsis & trailers to give us a snapshot of what to us for the next little while. And if you are staying in this weekend I'd highly recommend checking out the dark Irish comedy The Guard which made both my Best & Most Enjoyed List of 2011; it was released on DVD earlier this week (see more DVD releases here).

Stay warm, and have a great weekend!
