Film Gudie Friday

[Editor Note: as you know on this post which i like to called Film Guide Friday i like to post every film that will pop up in the Detroit area for the first time this weekend either a Wide speared first run released like The Simpson Movie this weekend to the art house films like the Main Art, Maple Art, Birmingham 8,and the Detroit Film Theater at the D.I.A. to the every popular Discount theater at the Cinamark theater in Warren.

But there is one film that is out this week which star got into a whold lot of trouble this week that have force me to make this move, as you probable know by now Lindsay Lohan was arrest for DUI aging and worst only she was arrest only two weeks after getting out of rehab after she was Arrested for a similar DUI Charge and even worst yet she was caught having Cocaine on her and then trying to pass the blame on other.

And worst yet it all happened on the week her new Movie "I Know Who Killed Me" is out this week which was made during one of her many stint in rehab.

So in a move i don't have to make aging, i am not listing "I Know Who Killed Me" or the Trailer from youtube on this week listing because i am not going to give attion to a film whose star still better than everyone else, but not knowing that she hurting her life at the same time.

so with that on to this week Film guide Friday.]

Brand Upon The Brain!

Winnipeg wunderkind Guy Maddin (The Saddest Music in the World) is back with his most spectacularly outrageous and purely enjoyable epic to date. With a hilariously labyrinthine plot that defies description (we can reveal that it contains a crazed mother who wants to restore her youth, a mysterious orphanage, a mad scientist, a Romania-shaped birthmark and an anxiety-ridden hero named Guy) Brand Upon the Brain! is equal parts childhood reminiscence, expressionist horror movie and teen detective serial, all orchestrated by one of the world’s most original and visionary filmmakers. Featuring a remarkable orchestral score and a narration by Isabella Rossellini, Brand Upon the Brain! – one of the year’s most subversively funny films as well as one of the most improbably touching – received a standing ovation before sold-out houses at the Toronto and New York Film Festivals.

Playing Saturday at 7:00 PM and 9:30 PM
and Sunday From 4:00 PM and 7:00 PM

and this Saturday Weekend Creather Feather
Beging at 2:00 PM

First Men In The Moon
(England—1964—directed by Nathan Juran)

And you thought Neil Armstrong was first. No way! As this playful, exciting, lushly mounted H.G. Wells science-fiction fantasy would have it, an offbeat inventor (the wonderfully comedic Lionel Jeffries) and some friends found a way – in 1899, no less – to fly from their peaceful British Victorian homes all the way to the moon, where they discover a vast, underground lunar civilization, complete with an insect-like supreme ruler who has severe misgivings about his terrestrial visitors. Ray Harryhausen’s elegant special effects shine in this witty and briskly paced adventure, which is unusually faithful to Wells’ original story.

Godzilla vs. King Ghidorah
(Japan, 1991, directed by Kazuki Amori)

in which time travelers from the 23rd century return to 1992 Japan to present a way to rid Earth of the mutated Godzilla. Much to everyone’s dismay, the plan instead results in the creation of a new monster, the fearsome three-headed King Ghidorah!

and Here are some film that are poping up this week at Cinamark 16 in Warren.


Play everywhere in Detroit Next week on my birthday.

Enrolling in public school for the first time, a rich kid becomes the self-appointed underground psychiatrist to the student body.

A year on from Syd Barrett’s death this documentary explores the life, music, influence and legacy of one of the lost souls of British rock music.

From the early beginnings of Pink Floyd and Barrett’s contribution to their pioneering brand of psychedelic pop to the consequences of his exploration of drugs that set Barrett on a tragic path away from the band to a solo career and eventually life as a virtual recluse.

The programme comes up to date with an exploration of Barrett’s passing and the fulsome tributes in the media with comments from editors and journalists about what made Barrett so special when his entire recorded output is just 3 albums.

The programme features new interviews with members of Pink Floyd, manager Peter Jenner, Andrew Male assistant editor of Mojo, Allan Jones editor of Uncut and Barrett's sister Rosemary.

Now they return with Chad Taylor (Tortoise, Chicago Underground Orchestra/duo), mostly recently seen at the Bohemian with Henry Grimes and Roy Campbell. Digital Primitives is slightly more accessable and funky than much of these guys' out-put, but with plenty of the inventive side of their imaginations. With Chad on drums, we can assume that Cooper-Moore will be concentrating on homemade strings and things. Check out their new release on saxophonist Assif Tsahar's Hopscotch label.
