Hi there Insiders!

Hey, do you think you're tough? Do you walk around the street like you've got a roll of carpet under each arm? Do you wear those muscle tops even when you go to the snow? Do you drink in certain suburban pubs? Yeah, you're tough - but we know someone who's tougher. In Gran Torino, Clint Eastwood proves that even in his 70s, he's still not someone to be trifled with. Whether he's laying the smack down to some neighbourhood punk, or rescuing the girl next door from a gang, Eastwood is 100% heavy-duty all through Gran Torino. We'll even go so far to say that this is one of our favourite films so far this year, and we think it'll be one of yours too.

If Eastwood equals tough, than Brad Pitt equals sexy. However in The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, Pitt is the titular character who ages backwards. So as a young child he looks like an old man, but as he gets older he looks younger. Yeah, we know that all of you over a certain age (and we're right there with you) wish that happened in real life, but as Button discovers, it makes having a relationship a bit difficult even when the object of your affections is as beautiful as Cate Blanchett. And for you internet hounds, you'll be able to download Benjamin Button as well as get it from your local Network store - visit www.networkvideo.com.au for more details.

One bloke who does rival Eastwood in the toughness stakes is the burly British brawler Jason Statham, and he's back in Transporter 3, once again playing the suited wheelman Frank Martin. Once more behind the wheel of an Audi, Martin has to deliver a very uncooperative daughter of a Ukrainian diplomat, and then the double crosses start. Look, you don't grab a Transporter film for the story - it's all about car chases, fight scenes and sexy girls - and number three doesn't disappoint. It's a guilty pleasure, but it's still a pleasure.

If we had more space we'd bang on about all the other great movies at Network, but you'll just have to see for yourself. Head on over to your local Network store, and you'll find something you'll really enjoy.

We'll see you in-store.
