My question is, is it better getting fresh film a week before shooting (from Kodak) or for convenience sake getting it now and freezing it for two months?

However I've heard some terrible stories too....
I'd say fresh all the way.
Is there a reason why you'd purchase it so far in advance?

"Is there a reason why you'd purchase it so far in advance?"
A few factors; I feel better having stock close by, if something develops that I would like to document.
I'm also finishing some shots for a little film I'm doing and I "might" need another 400ft. roll. which is the result of loose planning, ideas in progress, and not getting enough film for what I'm shooting. Not surprising being that I don't have years of experience. It's turning out to be a tough call for me as I usually get a few extra shots that "might" work, but I'd rather shoot them and have them as an option later. In short, I'd rather have too much than not enough.
