This Week in Movies – March 22-29

Doing this week’s post a day early to make sure I get everything in.

New Releases

  • The Raid (March 22) – This is exciting.  I just got a pass to see an advanced screening tonight of the film the rocked last year’s Midnight Madness programme at TIFF.  Should be a fun screening (BTW, I don’t like referencing the film with the Redemption subtitle they tacked on for copyright reasons).
  • The Hunger Games (March 23) – Also tonight, I will be going to a midnight screening of The Hunger Games. This is only the second midnight screening for a new release I’ve been to (the last being Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows, Part 2).  Should be good.
  • Tabloid (March 27 or 29) – The latest documentary by Errol Morris plays for three screenings at the Bloor Cinema.  I hope to catch either the Tuesday or Thursday screening.
  • Spirited Away (March 25) – The second film I’m seeing in the Bell Lightbox’s Studio Ghibli retrospective, this is the film that won Hayao Miyazaki an Oscar.  I’ve been wanting to see it ever since it first came out.
