  • Daydream Nation (DVD Review) Awesome Canadian dark comedy set in a small town where the new girl in town decides to cause trouble and create her own love triangle. Stars Kat Dennings, Josh Lucas & Reece Thomspon and is the directorial debut from Michael Goldbach who wrote Childstar.
  • Down Terrace freaking brilliant must-see UK crime drama
  • The Mechanic (DVD Review) this hard edge action flick is a remake of 70's flick of the same name with Charles Bronson, this version stars Jason Statham and Ben Foster as mentor/mentoree assassins.
  • Vanishing on 7th Street (DVD Review) Horror/thriller set Detroit and where almost everyone has disappeared during a blackout. Stars Hayden Christensen and directed by Brad Anderson (The Machinist, Transsiberian).
  • The Roommate (podcast review) When the trailers for this on came out I was surprized at how much it looked like Single White Female... and turns out this thriller starring Minka Kelly, Leighton Meester and Cam Gigandet actually *is* a remake. Who knew? Now *you* do.
  • Modra I'm aching to see this coming of age film set in Slovakia from director Ingrid Veninger (Only), starring Hallie Switzer & Alexander Gammal.
