Hi there Movie Clubbers,

Once again, it's another fortnight jam-packed full of great titles at your local Network store. And we're kicking off this fortnight with a hot one.

If we mention the name Zac Efron, we think we know what kind of response we're gonna get - high pitched girly screams. Hey, we get it; the dude's a hottie and a half. But in 17 Again he shows that he's also a pretty handy comedic actor, playing a thirtysomething guy (who looks a lot like Chandler from Friends) who suddenly reverts back to his 17-year-old self. He quickly discovers that going to high-school in the late '00s is a lot different from the early '90s, and we aren't talking about different haircuts. This is a fun comedy that the whole family will enjoy, if you can hear it over the teenage girly squeals.

Now for something completely different. You might know Russell Crowe for his phone throwing, fist flying, beered-up brawly antics. But before he was known as Hollywood's Bad Boy, he was actually a pretty decent actor; and in State of Play he proves that a few fights haven't taken any toll on his dramatic skills. Here he plays a news reporter who uncovers a scandal big enough to send shockwaves through Washington, if he can keep himself alive long enough to make it public. This tense political thriller has a great cast (Crowe, Ben Affleck, Helen Mirren, Rachel McAdams) and they're all in top form here. If you crave quality from your movies, this is what you've been searching for.

And finally, on a completely different bent is the provocatively named Lesbian Vampire Killers. Set in England, two lovable slackers, Fletch and Jimmy, set off on a great adventure that sees them become prey to a group of lesbian vampires. As sexy as they are deadly, they want to make our hapless duo into their latest snack; and while Fletch and Jimmy want to get close to the girls, they don't want to get close to their fangs. This is mindlessly fun stuff that delivers sufficient amounts of scares, laughs and nudity to make it a fun night in for the boys.

But if the combination of hottie Efron, punchy Crowe and sexy vampires isn't enough for you, come on over to your local Network store; you're sure to find something that you love.

See you in-store.

Fired Up

If there's one thing that will never change about movies, it's that you can always make a movie just about guys trying to get girls. That's basically the plot of Fired Up, but it's the lengths that some guys go to that makes this stand out from the crowd. Nick
