Lots of stuff from The Beeb (that's the BBC, not Justin Bieber), plus a few movies that you may not have saw at the cinemas, but still are worth watching, for this week.

Starting with the movies, we have Al Pacino's Danny Collins, the story of an aging rock star who discovers a previously undelivered letter that may just change his life. It include a star studded cast consisting of Annette Bening, Jennifer Garner and Christopher Plummer, this underrated film is definitely worth a watch, especially if you're a fan of music.

Another underrated film from a couple of years back is Super, starring Rainn Wilson (the ever so annoying, but at the same time lovable Dwight from The Office), this less-than-super-hero movie also stars Ellen Page, Liv Tyler and Kevin Bacon, and is also often confused with (the far superior, IMO) 'Kick-Ass', despite being fairly different movies in terms of tone at least.

Other interesting flicks range from the 2004 Roman Polanski version of Oliver Twist, Miley Cyrus before she went a bit out there in So Undercover, and the answer to the trivia question "name the movie that Eddie Murphy and Robert De Niro starred in together", Showtime.

To the other Showtime, this time the US cable network, and their deal with Stan brings another "First on Stan" series, Dice, this new comedy series has already gotten some good reviews and is worth a look if you like a laugh (who doesn't though?).

And as mentioned previously, a lot of new BBC content has been added this week to Stan. The highlights include Kennedy's Suicide Bomber, about the plot to kill JFK years before the actual assassination (good companion doco to 11.22.63 methinks), the delightful (if you're a sci-fi nerd like me, that is) The Real History of Science Fiction, the funny The Wrong Mans and the original BBC version of Getting On (it was remade by HBO and even the remake has an IMDb rating of 7.7, so you know you can't go wrong with the original).

So plenty for everyone to enjoy this week!
