- Frisson des Collines (DVD Review) Charming 1969-set French Canadian film following a preteen boy who has his heart set on going to Woodstock and seeing Jimi Hendrix.
- The Ledge (DVD Review) films that put the thriller genre full of religious philosophy are few and fair between, in fact this might be the only one I've ever seen that's done it. And it's keep me thinking every since watching it, strong performances from Charlien Hunnman especially and asked some interesting questions.
- True Legend pretty spectacular historically set martial arts film following two brothers: the family man & successful Su Can (Vincent Zhao) and the power hungry adoptive brother Yuan Lie (Andy On). Fantastic fights & fabulous settings & art direction made this very exciting to watch and I think it has one of my favourite posters of the year. Those hands,... they are coming to get you!
- The Butcher, The Chef and The Swordsman / Dao Jian Xiao Not one but 2 martial arts flicks out this week! I've not seen this one but it's on my list!
- Carlos (Criterion) Blu-Ray biopic/crime film that's so long it's sometimes not called a film but always talked about with affection gets the BluRay Criterion treatment.
- Lost Future Wow, Sean Bean films have been coming out of the woodwork since Game of Thrones! This one is a post apocalyptic made of TV flick also starring Sam Claflin (The Pillars of Earth, Snow White and the Huntsman). I'm thinking it's Lost World fast-forward to the future?
- The Boxer and the Bombshell This is another wild card is a love triangle boxing style & femme fatale style starring Rose Byrne, Hugo Weaving and Matt le Nevez.
- Call me Fitz The Complete First Season Multiple Gemini winning Canadian series starring Jason Priestly as a car salesman who in to a little bit of everything shady.

- Queen as Folk Complete UK Series I can't believe it's been over 10 years since this fantastic TV series debuted. Wow. Own it all today!
- Footloose (DVD & Blu-Ray) Deluxe Edition With the remake around the corner it's time to kick off your Sunday shoes and dance up a rebellion to the original film with Kevin Bacon.
- Transformers: Dark of the Moon Ah, I'm not likely to watch this 3rd after surving the first two of the super-shiny-fast-spinny-robots in disguise film but I will admit I do think the trailer for the film is one of the best of the year. Crazy. But true.
