Hey Insiders,

We've been living life with a song in our hearts and many more in our heads, and it's all down to a certain foursome from the Nordic land of Sweden that are more popular than Volvo, Ikea and Swedish meatballs with lingonberry jam combined.

Yes, we've gone a little bit ABBA mad thanks to the release of Mamma Mia! on DVD, and the combination of the irresistibly catchy songs, the totally irresistible Greek scenery, and the amazing cast make this a musical that will appeal to almost everyone. With actors like Meryl Streep, Colin Firth, Pierce Brosnan and the surely-about-to-make-it-huge Amanda Seyfried all belting out ABBA songs like Dancing Queen, SOS, I Have a Dream and of course, Mamma Mia; a good time is only the press of a play button away.

But it's not all Swedish pop this month; we've also got action a-plenty with cinema's most enduring action hero: Indiana Jones. In the very long titled Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, Harrison Ford proves that not only is age just a number, but that he seems to be completely immune to time. It must have been all that lightspeed travelling he did as Han Solo. Full of the barn-storming, derring-do action that the series is famous for, Crystal Skull makes for a worthy fourth addition to the series.

What's that? There's another action hero in the making? Well, the Zohan isn't your normal action hero, and nor is he your normal hairdresser or Mossad agent either. Adam Sandler is his usual unsubtle self in You Don't Mess with the Zohan, in which he plays a (you guessed it) Mossad agent turned hairdresser, and as you'd expect it's full of laughs. In fact, this might be the best Sandler comedy we've seen in quite a while.

And like we say every fortnight, that's just the start of the entertainment. Take a look around this page, there are more great things to watch than you could drive a SAAB into. Oh, it looks like we're back into the Swedish swing of things again, so make sure you get into your local Network store faster than a serve from Bjorn Borg.

See you in-store.
