what hidden gems have you seen recently?
The other night i was channel surfing and came across a film called Keeping Up With The Steins.
It was about the lead up to a Jewish boys Bar Mitzvah and the strife his family goes through. it was funny as fuck and more than a little moving as well.
Anyone else come across any hidden gems recently? Also, anyone else know the film im on about?
Answer: Perhaps the most under rated, and definitely most shocking film of the year is Martyrs. This low budget French psychological horror takes a while to get started, but once it does you will be truly horrified - it sticks two fingers up to the torture-porn Hollywood obsession of films such as Hostel.
Red is the story of a man who wants justice after his beloved dog is killed. Sounds strange, but it is a gripping little American film with an Oscar worthy performance from Brian Cox.
In The Loop is a hilarious and sadly all too realistic fictional portrayal of American and British politics, based on the BBC TV show The Thick Of It. Peter Capaldi is absolutely magnificent in this, and there is a great performance from James Gandolfini of Sopranos fame.
And coming to cinemas this Friday is one of the best films of recent years - Kathryn Bigelow's The Hurt Locker. A devastating, realistic and gripping story of a bomb disposal unit in war torn Iraq.

The NEW Doctor has been revealed?
Peter Capaldi, who was the Roman dad in The Fires of Pompeii and the government bloke in Torchwoods Children of Earth has been chosen. I think good! A bit of maturity in the role, very appropriate for the 50th Anniversary.
What do YOU think?
If you dont like the choice, who would you have preferred?

Scary movie with mansion, and people kill each other to win a briefcase of money?
Whats the name of the scary movie where there are like 8 people or something in a mansion and they have to kill each other and the last one alive gets a briefcase of money and the ending scene is like the winner going into a room and they only find some other people with briefcases and it means the game starts over?
Answer: House of 9 (2005)
starring Dennis Hopper, Kelly Brook, Hippolyte Girardot, Peter Capaldi, Susie Amy, Raffaello Degruttola, Asher D, Morven Christie, Julienne Davis, Jim Carter (voice)
Nine strangers - a priest; a dancer; a designer; an aspirant rapper; a former tennis pro; a woman on probation; an unsuccessful composer and his wife; and a detective - are randomly abducted, drugged and locked in a house by a wealthy maniac. They are informed through a public address system that there are seventy-five cameras following them, and only one will survive and win $5 million to keep quiet. The psychological game begins, with fear and greed affecting the participants.
Here's the movie trailer:
There are two endings to this movie. You and I saw this one:
The second ending has Lea emerging out of the light into another house: an exact replica of the last one. In the foyer are four people watching her, each with his/her own large bag of money. The camera zooms in on Lea, who realizes that her bag only contains $1 million. As she grips the shard of glass through her scarf, a resigned and sorrowed look grows on her face as a single tear forms in her eye.
