Film Fan Friday for Friday May 25, 2012

Hello Film Fans and Fanatics!



Welcome to Film Fan Fridays for Friday May 25, 2012!

In limited release this week we have and interesting variety of films to choose from, I've got my eye on documentary Indie Game: The Movie that follows video game developers and just played during the Hot Docs. More documentary goodness witn Last Call at the Oasis looking and the diminishing supply of water. We also have the Canadian film Barrymore, a film adaptation of the play starring Christopher Plummer as John Barrymore in preparation of 1920 Broadway production of Richard III. Keeping it historical we have Hysteria, a romantic comedy set during the invention of the vibrator. More comedy this week with the Lebanese film Where Do We Go Now? and smart kid looking for his father in Jesus Henry Christ.

In wide release this week we have just two films to choose from including the extreme tourism horror flick Chernobyl Diaries (I'm so seeing that...) and science fiction comedy three-quel Men in Black 3 (in 3D, naturally).

Have a great weekend!
