This is a great time to be a Doctor Who fan - the show is celebrating its 50th anniversary and we have had two special early releases of new-found shows! I caught up with our good friends at the BBC to discuss all the latest buzz on the Doctor...
Teens are notoriously hard to shop for. While I don’t have any of my own, I do have nieces and nephews, and well, I was a teen myself at one point in time. Trends change on a daily basis, and while you think you have your teen pegged, you might be completely off the mark. So this year, why not give a gift that is sure to please – the gift of music. Whether your teen shares your love of Michael Bublé and Katy Perry, or prefers tunes that sound to you like a mixture of nails on a chalkboard and the screeching sounds of an alley cat in heat, the choice of gifts for music-loving teens is endless.
Written by Sylvester Stallone, Phil Broker (Jason Statham) is a former DEA agent who moves to a quiet city with his daughter to lay low after a huge bust, but there's only one problem - Phil can't lay low.
David Wozniak (Vince Vaughn) has been unreliable almost his entire life, but when he finds out that he is the father of 533 children, he has to decide if he wants to continue down the path of unreliability.
There are some men for whom the status quo is just fine. Why on earth would you want to try a new restaurant when you know exactly what to expect from a fast food joint? Why bike to work when you could be sitting in the comfort of your car instead? And why would you have a pumpkin spice latte instead of the usual morning coffee? Seriously, polluting espresso with the flavour of mashed up squash? It defies logic. Those guys are easy to shop for. Just look at what they’re using right now and buy a new one —maybe in a slightly different colour if you’re feeling brave. For those who think different, you sometimes need to go outside the box when it comes to gifts. Ramp up the portable sound by replacing the standard ear buds with some Dr. Dre cans, or ditch the dumb thermostat that’s been on the living room wall for decades in favour of a smart Nest Learning Thermostat. Guys who love to try new things will eat this sort of stuff up. We’ve got a few ideas if one of these rebels is on your gift list this year.

The first season of Girls generated a huge buzz and if you still haven’t heard of the show, then you’re missing out. Season 2 is now released on Blu-ray and DVD, but before you head out to get your own copy, let’s take a look at season 2.
With the G.I. Joe team being framed for crimes they did not commit, the President of the United States had no choice but to terminate the team. The problem is, there's no stopping the team as they try to figure out who really is in charge and who framed them.
When I first heard about G.I. Joe: Retaliation, I figured I was going to wait for the DVD release, but let's be serious now, when Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson was announced, that basically reserved my seat at the theatres and I'm glad I wasn't disappointed.
In the sequel to Despicable Me, everyone is back, including those funny, loveable minions. Gru (Steve Carell) is now the cool dad on the block and everyone wants a piece of him. When the AVL (Anti-Villain League) finds out there's a new villain in town, they ask Gru to help them catch him, but will Gru be able to juggle the lifestyle of being a dad while looking for the villain?
Mike Wazowski (Billy Crystal) had his eye set on attending Monsters University while growing up and James P. Sullivan (John Goodman) was part of the famous family who had continued to attend Monsters University throughout the years. When Wazowski and Sullivan meet at the university, they butt heads and have their differences , but they need to figure it out fast before they ruin their chances in a competition.

The world is under attack by the "undead" and the 7 billion people that currently live on earth are rapidly diminishing. Gerry Lane (Brad Pitt), a former United Nations employee, is trying to buy some time on finding something to stop the pandemic by travelling to different places in the world to find answers.
The Newsroom has turned heads and is one of the best series on television today. A show created by the wonderful Aaron Sorkin and starring Jeff Daniels, what more do you need to be believe in the hype?
The much anticipated Man of Steel arrives in theatres June 14, but Best Buy and Norton are giving you lucky Torontonians a chance to watch it before anyone else. Don't worry, you don't have to do any crazy stunts to get them!
Dom (Vin Diesel), Brian (Paul Walker) and their crew are off in different places across the world, enjoying their freedom and money from their previous heist, but it all comes to a halt when mastermind Owen Shaw (Luke Evans) becomes a disturbance for Hobbs (Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson). Hobbs offers the crew a deal - pardons for the entire crew if they can stop Shaw, but it means a lot more than that, especially to Dom because he finds out his deceased girlfriend Letty (Michelle Rodriguez) is still alive and working for Shaw.
Nick (Owen Wilson) and Billy (Vince Vaughn) are salesmen who recently found out the company they work for is now closed. With no job, their lives start to fall apart until Billy gets an interview for the both of them for an internship at Google.
In the second installment, the Enterprise is sent back home only to realize there is a one man wrecking crew destroying their world. With Captain Kirk at the helm, will his edgy decisions save the Enterprise and stop this force to be reckoned with?
Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) has had enough with the Mandarin (Ben Kingsley) and his threats, but calling out the Mandarin didn't help Mr. Stark and the people who are close to his heart, as he ventures an uphill battle to rebuild and seek revenge.
