Week's Films to Stalk: 30th November to 6th December

FilmCamera.jpgWelcome to Filmstalker's Week of Films to Stalk. This lists all the UK releases in cinema and the films on non-subscription television this week that I'd recommend watching, or in a few cases would recommend steering clear of. Watch out for the Filmstalker hotdog award for favourites.

Despite this being for the films in the UK, it's not just about what's on, but about finding some films you haven't seen in a while and a bit of discussion.

This week there's some cracking films, a fair few John Carpenter films for a start, including The Thing, Escape from New York and Christine. Oh, and it's my birthday on Monday.

This week I've decided not to sit for hours and write out commentary on all the films, as the effort I'm putting into it doesn't seem to be getting a good response, so I'm missing that part out. I'll see how this goes for a few weeks and maybe cut it back again, just as part of the revamps of the content of the site in general.
