Hi there Movie Clubbers,

Another fortnight gone, another heap of great titles waiting to be discovered at your local Network store. This time, we're starting with a highly anticipated title.

The master of genre mixing is back. Who is it? Who else but Quentin Tarantino, this time with Brad Pitt and Inglourious Basterds (what a combo!). Here, the cheeky duo combine to depict the horrors of World War II and they sure do pull it off. Speaking of a winning formula, nothing comes more highly recommended than Balibo. Based on a true story, this movie explores the killing of five enthusiastic young journalists back in 1975 through the eyes of the forgotten sixth journalist, Roger East (Anthony LaPaglia) and emerging Fretilin diplomat, Jose Ramos-Horta (Oscar Isaac). Balibo will have you holding your breath and keeping those eyes closed!

Want more action? Look no further than Bangkok Dangerous starring Nicolas Cage. Joe (Cage) is a globe trotting hit man who goes about his work meticulously, taking out his targets and getting rewarded nicely for his work. You'll stay out of Joe's way if you know what's good for you!

Everyone needs a little laughter in their life and The Ugly Truth will have you fighting back tears (the good kind!). Gerard Butler and Katherine Heigl team up to play Mike Chadway and Abby Richter respectively. Abby is one tightly wound woman lookin' for some love. Can Mike be that guy despite his slightly chauvinistic ways? This flick proves the truth isn't always ugly.

So we've served you the entrée version of titles available. Head to your local Network store for the main course (and if you're good, some dessert as well).

See you in-store.
