Film Friday: ‘RocknRolla’ & ‘Body of Lies’

Get ready for guns, thugs, and special agents this week, as two big movies try to duke it out for Canada’s Thanksgiving weekend. On the one hand, Guy Ritchie‘s RocknRolla brings the director back to form, while director Ridley Scott debuts the CIA thriller, Body of Lies. Also opening this week is the family film, City of Ember; the sports drama, The Express; and to get you in the mood for Halloween there’s the horror film, Quarantine.
