Film Fan Fridays for Friday February 10, 2012

Hello Film Fans and Fanatics!

Welcome to Film Fan Fridays for Friday February 10, 2012!

In limited release this week we have just two releases to choose from and from them are the highly acclaimed and anticipated We Need to Talk About Kevin by Lionel Shriver and starring the formidable Tilda Swinton and we also have the French drama The Snows of Kilimanjuro.

In wide release this week we have and interesting array of choices including political thriller/action flick Safe House starring Ryan Reynolds and Denzel Washington or if you are revving up for Valentine's there is The Vow starring Channing Tatum and Rachel McAdams as a couple that go through the challenge of memory loss together. If you are looking for adventure there is Journey 2: The Mysterious Island with The Rock (which might be my pick this week!), the 3D releases of Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace and the Bollywood release of Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu.

If you are looking for a new Valentine's Day pick we do have a mid-week release on February 14, 2012 with This Means War starring Tom Hardy & Chris Pine as two men both trying to win the hear of Reese Witherspoon. Oh, and they are both ...spies. I love both those actors but it looks like their characters spend more time wreaking havoc on each other than trying to woo the girl. Not quite *that* romantic...

Have a great weekend!
