The weather's too depressing for our liking so we're going to get a cosy blanket, a hot cup of cocoa and distract ourselves with these DVDs...

Magic Mike

Before Channing Tatum made it as an actor, he did a spot of male stripping to pay the bills. Luckily for us he decided to make a film based on his stripping past and Magic Mike was born.

The plot revolves around Adam, a nineteen-year-old who enters the world of male stripping through a friend as a quick way to make money and get girls. But soon this get a bit more complicated and soon we realise life in the world of strip clubs isn't as fun as it might seem.

The film was directed by Steven Soderbergh so it is a lot more indie than people might have expected but hey we get to see Channing Tatum, Matthew McConnaughey, Alex Pettyfer, Matt Bomer and Joe Manganiello dancing around in next to nothing.

Is there anything else left for us to say about this?

Magic Mike, £9.99 ,


Seeing as Twilight is officially done and dusted, we're holding on in every way we can. When we're not looking at films to replace the saga, we've been looking at flicks starring some of the Twilight cast.

Ashley Greene gets all retro in Skateland alongside Shiloh Fernandez in this coming of age film. Set in the early 1980s, in small-town Texas, dramatic events force a 19-year-old skating rink manager to look at his life in a very new way.

All we could think watching this flick is how much we need to go to a skating rink next summer. Bet we'd spend most of the day on our arses but it'd still be worth it!

Skateland, £13.19,


Revenge is the brilliant story about the arrival of the mysterious socialite Emily Thorne (Emily VanCamp) who buys a beach house in the Hamptons next door to the powerful Grayson family.

As the residents try to figure out more about their new neighbour, we learn that Emily is actually Amanda Clarke, the daughter of the man the Grayson's framed for giving supplies to a group which led to a terrorist attack.

Now she's back in town to make the Grayson's and everyone who helped them pay for breaking her family and causing her father's wrongful imprisonment.

Top of the list is Victoria Grayson (Madeleine Stowe), the woman who betrayed her father the most and what better to hurt a woman that to go through her family?

But soon Emily starts to struggle with her emotions and wonders if she can continue to carry out her plan for revenge!

This show is intense and complex but once you get into this world you can't wait to find out what Emily is going to do next...

Revenge, £29.99,

The Amazing Spiderman

The film that brought Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone together as one Hollywood cutest couples, this is one remake that ticked all the right boxes.

We were still happy with the Tobey Maguire Spiderman flicks but someone decided Spidey needed a relaunch and Andrew Garfield was the man for the job.

In this retelling, Peter Parker finds a clue that might help him understand why his parents disappeared when he was young. His path puts him on a collision course with Dr. Curt Connors, his father's former partner.

There's a lot more laughs and even better CGI so what's not to love?

The Amazing Spiderman, £9.99,

Step Up 4: Miami Heat

Yes the Step Up series is still going and it's all down to the fact we all do love to watch the amazing cheroegraphy created for these types of dance flicks. Step Up 4 has a nice twist to the usual story as it builds on the recent popualrity pf flash mobs and gives it a more urban edge.

You have your cute girl lead and your hot male dancer who shows her a new world of dance. While nothing can beat the original Channing Tatum/Jenna Dewan combo, we can still enjoy what Miami Heat has to offer.

Step Up 4: Miami Heat is out on DVD from 3 December 2012
