An Oscar favourite, some classic must-see movies, and a new British thriller. These are just some of the highlights this week. Read on to find out more.


The heavily promoted new Stan exclusive series Insomnia has arrived, with the first two episodes of the thriller available to stream and new episodes coming every Thursday.

There is also the newly added miniseries Butterfly.

Season 15 of American Ninja Warrior has also been added.

Movies, Documentaries:

Anatomy Of A Fall features some great acting from the human and animal stars of the film and was one of this year's Oscar favourites.

For those who love concert videos (personally, I just can't get into them), Lady Gaga's Chromatica Ball is what you need.

The rest of the movie highlights features a bit of everything, and so in no particular order, here they are.

Flashdance is one of two '80s movies that features a very memorable final dancing scene with some very memorable music.

Before you watch the remake, the original version of The Crow, controversial and tragic as it is, is worth your time. As is Face/Off, one of those over-the-top '90s action films that you have to see just so you still get the culture references (less of an issue these days).

The Fault In Our Stars has two co-stars with great chemistry and a story that will ensure you have something in your eyes at the end of the film.

The Core was not particularly well received, but I love disaster movies with dodgy sci-fi, and this movie definitely has it all.

Films about prodigies are a sub-genre of their own, and X + Y is a good entry into this sub-genre.

And finally, a lot of people have two careers, but Renee Gracie has two very different careers and Revealed: Renee Gracie - Fireproof follows her attempt to return to her original career after success in her second one.


The third episode of the "Famous Five" series, The Famous Five - The Eye of the Sunrise, has just arrived - fans of the book series should definitely check it out.
