FUN CANCER AND CONVERSATIONALISTS (One Week and Pontypool)
Just a quick note to say if you're not up for Giant Naked Blue Men there's a number of other good movies in theatres.
I already raved about Pontypool. It's open now. Cerebral horror flick. The best kind.
Also in theatres is One Week staring Joshua Jackson. I wanted to mention this, because the movie is fighting an uphill battle.
Yes, it's a movie about a guy with terminal cancer. Yes he gets on his motorbike and rides West, across Canada.
But here's the thing...
Wry, surprising and not as sentimental as you think.
Josh does a nice job and the narration by Campbell Scott is really what sells it.
Give it a second chance, i think you'll be surprised.
