Starting this weekend at the Orpheum Theatre, yet another critically praised film: Locke posterLocke, starring Tom Hardy (The Dark Knight Rises; Inception). "A one-man show set in a single confined location, Locke demands a powerful performance, and gets it from a never-more-compelling Tom Hardy." "One of my favorite movies of the last couple years. Great script, Tom Hardy is brilliant!" Chris Busch sees a Best Actor Oscar nomination- "it's a lock." The Orpheum also rocks with many live events. We suggest bookmarking OrpheumTheaterFairfield.com and joining their email list.

Another weekend in the summer movie season, another "blockbuster" release. Opening Friday: X-Men: Days Of Future Past. The buzz is very good: "as intoxicating as a shot of adrenaline. It's what summer movies are meant to be."- Washington Post

This month's free film at the FF Library is Philomena, with Judi Dench and Steve Coogan. It's a wonderful film experience. "A true story that takes unexpected, unusually poignant turns. Dench is not the only reason to see this unapologetic crowd-pleaser, but she is the best one." Friday evening, 7:30.

We'll talk about this, what we've seen and continue our summer movie preview, on the Filmosophers, with Chris Busch & Bruce Miller "where we give our filmosophy of the movies and have filmosophical discussions". Fridays at 12:30 PM, again Sunday mornings 11:30. Locke: "A man, a car, a hands-free mobile device. And it is extraordinary." - Philadelphia Inquirer
