Hi there Movie Clubbers,

We've come to the end of another fortnight and once again, your local Network store has a heap of great new titles for your eyes only. So, let's stop wasting time and get Up, Up and away!

Yes, if Up doesn't get you excited, nothing ever will! This is another Pixar stunner featuring a couple of unlikely heroes in 8-year-old Russell (Jordan Nagai) and his grumpy old friend, Carl Fredricksen (Edward Asner), a pensioner in his 70s. If Up isn't enough to spoil those kiddies rotten, Aliens in the Attic will do the trick. Ever thought your kids were in a world of their own? Well, in this flick, they really are! Led by 15-year-old Tom (Carter Jenkins), a group of children must save their families from being zombified. Yep, we're scared too!

Now, for the adults: how about some Funny People to get you excited? Judd Apatow (Knocked Up, The 40-Year-Old Virgin) teams up with comedy double-trouble Adam Sandler and Seth Rogen to produce a drama (what?). Funny People deals with a serious subject matter (death) in a way that won't leave you depressed (thanks to Apatow's witty writing). Similarly, The Soloist manages to avoid completely bumming you out as it follows the story of Nathanial Ayers (Jamie Foxx), a former student at the prestigious Julliard music school who ends up homeless and roaming the streets of Los Angeles. Don't worry; The Soloist will have you believing that anything is possible.

There are more great movies where these great titles came from. Head down to your local Network store and enjoy!

See you in-store.

The Soloist

Nothing But the Truth (M)

There have been many journalist-inspired movies since 1976's All The President's Men and Nothing But the Truth ranks as one of the finest. Rachel Armstrong (Kate Beckinsale) practices journalistic ethics to the highest degree: she'd rather go to jail than name a source. The story in question blows the cover of a CIA operative, Erica Van
