Do you have something to hide (Out this week - 18/02/11)

We're on time this week, but only because we're unbeliebery short on theatrical releases, unless you're into Canadian you tube sensations (not that I'm prepared to give that particular movie space here). In fact if you like docs the fascinating Inside Job is probably the film to watch this week, however I'll stick to my fiction rules whilst also continuing my 2011 commitment to non-English language cinema so the film of the week is Confessions


School-based drama/horror that looks into the cycle of revenge and violence within the culture of bullying based on the novel by Kanae Minato it offers universal truths along with it's dissection of Japanese youth culture.

Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, the lovable chums at the centre of Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz and "Spaced" team up again for this potty-mouthed, creationist baiting version of E.T. which is apparently a lot better than the trailer suggests. Sigourney Weaver probably steals the movie in a cameo.

Big Momma's: Like Father Like Son

I doubt you need to be warned away from Martin Lawrence's latest installment in this laugh-free comedy franchise. Fat suits and stereotype reinforcing dialogue abound.

Our final release of the week - which is actually a holdover from last week - is this Tamil movie. Admittedly Tamil movies make most Bollywood entries seem easily accessible, but this hijack centred plot could be worth going on for the ride.
