- The Divide DVD Review (BluRay/DVD Combo and DVD Available) Harrowing post apocalyptic film directed by Xavier Gens which played at the Toronto After Dark Film Festival in 2011 at which point I had the opportunity to interview stars Michael Biehn and Michael Eklund - you can hear that interview here, or read the transcripts here: Michael Biehn interview and Michael Eklund interview.
- Shame (BluRay/DVD Combo Review) Greatly acclaimed film starring Michael Fassbender as a sex-addicted man who lives in New York, directed by Steve McQueen (Hunger). Formidable acting, but this one didn't quite speak to me.
- Hunger (BluRay) If you love the combo of Michael Fassbender starring in Steve McQueen film it's a great time to pick up their first foray on BluRay (Amazon.ca only)
- 7 Below (DVD Review) Supernatural/horror of the straight to DVD variety starring Ving Rhames, Rebecca da Costa, Val Kilmer and Luke Goss. Not quite as good or as goofy as I had hoped but interesting story and I was impressed by Luke Goss - will keep an eye on him.
- Freerunner Parkour action films always are on my radar so I'm looking forward to seeing his one with a heist flavour; it stars Sean Faris (Never Back Down) Danny Dyer (Doghouse, Devil's Playground (2010) & Rebecca De Costa, directed by Lawrence Silverstein.
- Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol One of the big action films of our past holiday season, Tom Cruise stars as Ethan Hunt and I can't believe I didn't see it! Heard great things about it, although mostly about the impressive stunts. Which honestly, is way more than enough for me.
- If nature documentaries are your thing you have a few options this week including the film Born to Be Wild and the gorgeous looking series Frozen Planet: The Complete Series.
- Keeping the TV theme we have several TV option this week including the Lifetime original movie Girl Fight starring Anne Heche; plus the following series: Skins (North American Version) Season 1, Ice Road Truckers - Season 5 and Treme: The Complete Second Season.
