Hi there Movie Clubbers,

Another fortnight has passed which means it's that time again for us to tell you about some great new titles! To get us started, we've got two Hollywood heavyweights for the price of one with John Travolta and Denzel Washington.

In The Taking of Pelham 123, Walter Garber (Washington) is a train dispatcher who's being investigated for accepting bribes from Japanese businessmen. If that wasn't stressful enough, he's now required to calm down Ryder (Travolta), a crazed gunman who's taken control of a downtown train. Uh-oh! Now for a power struggle of a very different kind, you won't want to miss The Young Victoria. King William IV (Jim Broadbent) desperately wants to keep the Duchess of Kent (Miranda Richardsom) from claiming the throne after his reign is over. He's hoping that his niece, Victoria (Emily Blunt) will come of age before then but she's more interested in her budding relationship with Belgian Prince Albert (Rupert Friend).

If royalty flicks aren't exactly your cup of tea, District 9 is one sci-fi flick that'll have you bamboozled right 'til the end. District 9 is a temporary refugee camp for a group of aliens that have outstayed their welcome on Earth. Wikus van der Merwe (Sharlto Copley) has been enlisted to evict them but when he's exposed to a strange alien chemical that threatens his life, he's forced to befriend two of the aliens out of necessity as he fights for survival.

For something a little more lighthearted, Charlie & Boots is one of those classic Aussie films that'll have you chuckling throughout. Charlie (Paul Hogan) and Boots (Shane Jacobson) are father and son but they've had their share of differences in the past. A road trip will fix all that, or will it? Charlie & Boots will provide you with a whole different meaning to the term 'man trip'.

Has our selection tempted your taste buds? You local Network store has more great titles where these came from.

See you in-store.

Charlie & Boots
After the sudden death of Grace, Charlie is without his beloved soul mate and in a state of grief. 'Boots'- Charlie's youngest son decides to put the current state of their father/son relationship aside for the sake of his Dad's happiness and takes Charlie on a fishing trip to the tip of Australia, Cape York.
District 9
So, you think that if you've seen one alien flick you've seen them all, right? Wrong! District 9 opens with a scene from the 1980s when a giant spacecraft hovers in the sky above Johannesburg. On board were a number of starving and disorientated creatures who

The Young Victoria
If you thought England's history lacked complexity, The Young Victoria will make you think again. In the 1830s, Britain was ruled by King William IV (Jim Broadbent) who didn't claim the throne until the age of 65 (a record that still stands although we think Prince

Funny People
Judd Apatow is the man behind some of the best comedies of late including Knocked Up and The 40-Year-Old Virgin. So, when you combine Apatow with comedy double-trouble in Adam Sandler and Seth Rogen, you think you're in for one funny film! But this film isn't a

The Soloist
The Soloist manages to do something that most Hollywood films can't: it takes what could be seen as a depressing plot and turns it into an uplifting story. It follows the story of Nathaniel Ayers (Jamie Foxx), a former student at the prestigious Julliard music
