Film Friday Weekly Roundup
And… another week is conquered! Which is what it feels like sometimes – you grab that week and wrestle it to the ground, just beat it into submission. Of course, those are the best weeks. On the not-so-best, it beats you into submission. The jury is still out on this one, friends and neighbors. But stuff is looking up at PCF headquarters. It’s Friday, the weather is beautiful, and the spoils of my latest Kino binge arrived this week. Looks like my weekend is booked solid! Now, down to business – what went down on the interwebs this week? Happy reading and happy viewing!

More good news from the film preservation front – The NFPF awards grants to save 60 movies.
Film Junk reviews the upcoming Blu-Ray of The Gold Rush.

Last but so not least… exploitation studio Troma, has been generating marginal and low-quality entertainment for 40 years, and to celebrate their streaming a whole load of so-bad-they’re-good movies on YouTube. Check back often cause they’re gonna update. Might I recommend A Nymphoid Barbarian in Dinosaur Hell! to start?
