JOE's 5 for the Weekend
This weekend you can forget all about Euro 2012's non-Irish quarter-finalists with the Body & Soul Festival or a Borgen box set.
Catch the finest in indie at the Body & Soul Festival
This weekend the Body & Soul FEstival hits Ballinlough Castle in Co Westmeath and we think that its got a fantastic indie line-up of emerging acts.
After "Midnight City" there isn't a radio listener alive who doesn't love M83 (pictured above) but we also recommend catching Django Django, Little Dragon and especially St Vincent.
Find out if the Five-Year Engagement is worth the investment
After his incredible work on The Muppets Movie, we'll watch anything starring Jason Segal and his latest appears to be a perfect date movie. The Five-Year Engagement features Segel and Emily Blunt as a long-term couple named Tom and Violet.
One year after meeting, Tom proposes to his girlfriend, Violet, but unexpected events keep tripping them up as they look to walk down the aisle together. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you"ll hopefully enjoy it - Hollywood' rom-com output has been extremely patchy as of late.
Allow Wanderlust to showcase a hippie-laden comedy
This weekend sees the DVD and Blu-ray release of the Paul Rudd and Jennifer Aniston comedy Wanderlust. The film didn't meet much success at the box office but perhaps it can turn things around in the home video market.
The comedy is Rudd's latest collaboration with Role Models director David Wain and centres around an urban couple that purchases a place in New York. However, once the husband loses his job they have no other options and leaves for Georgia to live with their family.
Along the way, they stay at a bed and breakfast hotel that turns out to be a hippie commune, which houses the tempting delights of the beautiful Malin Akerman. The somewhat less tempting sight in the film is Jennifer Aniston milking a goat... but maybe you're into that kind of thing? JOE isn't here to judge.
Watch the Scandinavians do it again with Borgen
Damn those Scandinavians. With The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo movie trilogy and both The Bridge and The Killing on TV, you'd think they'd have stopped sucking us in to their dour but utterly compelling storytelling. Not so.
With Borgen - released on Blu-ray and DVD this weekend - we're taken into Denmark's Parliamentary building to follow the intricate and complicated lives of politicians, media spinners and the reporters who feed off their triumphs and failures. If you love slow-paced but sumptuous TV then you must try Borgen.
Relive a classic movie with our Cult Film of the Week
This week’s Cult Classic film is the quite frankly extremely disturbing Event Horizon, perhaps the most underrated sci-fi flick of the 1990s.
If you haven’t already, we’d certainly advise you to make your way over to the Jameson Cult Film Club website to check out what the folks over there also recommend.
