JOE's 5 for the Weekend
This weekend isn't just about the Euro 2012 final, as there are plenty of other entertainment options to keep you amused, including Matthew McConaughey in Killer Joe.
Watch Matthew McConaughey confound expectations in Killer Joe
After far too many years leaning against Kate Hudson in risible romantic comedy movie posters, Matthew McConaughey is really stretching himself this year, with the weekend's release of Killer Joe and next month's Magic Mike.
His latest is a real departure for the star, as he plays a tough but quiet killer who befriends a young man (Emile Hirsch) who in turn wants his mother murdered. With The Exorcist director William Friedkin behind the camera, this could well be worth a watch.
Visit a ruined Dubai in Spec Ops: The Line
With shades of Apocalypse Now and indeed, its inspiration - Joseph Conrad's Heart of Darkness - Spec Ops: The Line is a shooter with higher ambitions than most.
Players control Captain Martin Walker, who is accompanied into the billionaire’s paradise of Dubai (now ruined due to a sandstorm) by a Delta Force bravo team to extract a US Army Colonel who has gone rogue. Reviews have largely been positive, with some suggesting that the game could be the surprise hit of the summer.
Spend some time with 'Craic Dealer' Dara O Briain
We're typically seen as a nation of begrudgers but who can't be proud of the success Dara O Briain is enjoying since heading across the pond for the BBC? Having begun earlier this year, Dara is taking his 'Craic Dealer' tour to Cork this weekend for Live At The Marquee.
The comedian's always worth the price of admission if you ask us, while repeat viewings shouldn't be out of the question when you consider his improv skills when speaking to the audience. You can snap up tickets here.
Watch the party of a lifetime in Project X
Three high-school lads decide they will throw a party but things spiral dangerously out of control when the whole neighbourhood turns up in Project X, a found-footage comedy hitting DVD and Blu-ray this weekend.
Reviews weren't been too kind upon release but if you're looking to switch your brain off for 90 minutes, you'll make it through OK.
Relive a classic movie with our Cult Film of the Week
This week’s Cult Classic film is The Blair Witch Project, a film that shook up the horror genre and scared the wits out of cinemagoers in the late 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.
