Cam’s Picks of the Week

A driver, a peep show and more modern warfare. 

The Film Pick: Drive (2011)

Nicolas Winding-Refn’s magnum opus is a staggeringly beautiful art-house visual poem. Focusing on intimate thrills rather than no-holds-barred mayhem, Ryan Gosling is the gripping eye of the stunning storm, complemented by a breathtaking soundtrack featuring Kavinsky’s ‘Nightcall’ and College ft The Real Youth’s ‘A Real Hero’.

The TV Pick: Peep Show (2003-2015)

The most quintessentially British sitcom there is, purely because at its heart, it’s a fantastically dull affair. David Mitchell and Robert Webb’s relationship is one many can relate to, and their day-to-day drastic, hilarious mishaps have provided some of the most quotable moments on British TV. “Brown is savoury, white’s the treat. Of course I’m the one who’s laughing, because I actually love brown toast.”

The Game Pick: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 (PS3/XBOX 360)

Simply the best Call of Duty out there. The COD that got many gamers, including myself, into the franchise with its challenging plot (featuring a terrorist mission that got the game banned in several parts of the world) and firm, relentlessly addictive, fun-as-hell gameplay – especially on multiplayer. 1v1’s on Rust are the face-offs of legends now, and don’t get me started on quick scoping. Forget any new releases – remaster MW2 as soon as possible.
