10. DVD: Buffering
Never before has a fast broadband connection been so important. Enterprising gay couple Aaron (Conner Mckenzy) and Seb (Alex Anthony) find their love life getting increasingly more, ahem, progressive when they begin filming their sex sessions for an Internet pay-per-view site in an effort to erase their heavy debt in this flesh-filled British comedy.

9. THEATER: Fela!
From the genius of out director-choreographer Bill T. Jones comes this exhilarating musical that pays tribute to the legendary musician, who used his extraordinary music to rebel against the military regimes in his native Nigeria. The Tony Award–winning hit settles into Los Angeles's Ahmanson Theatre for a five-week run beginning December 14. For tickets visit CenterTheatreGroup.org.
8. FILM: Young Adult
Charlize Theron, in her most challenging role since lesbian serial killer Aileen Wuornos in Monster, stars as Mavis, a reckless writer who returns to her hometown intent on stealing her former boyfriend (Patrick Wilson) away from his wife and newborn. Instead, she forms an unlikely bond with fellow misfit Matt (Patton Oswalt), who, although straight, was the victim of a gay bashing at their high school. Diablo Cody’s script is a consistently surprising, twisted delight, which as directed by Juno’s Jason Reitman results in the year’s squirmiest comedy.
