  • Thor [DVD] Thor | DVD | (26/09/2011) from £6.99  |  Saving you £5.02 (25.10%)  |  RRP £19.99

    Of all the folks in long underwear to be tapped for superhero films, Thor would seem to be the most problematic to properly pull off. (Hypothetical Hollywood conversation: "A guy in a tricked-out, easily merchandisable metal suit? Great! An Asgardian God of Thunder who says stuff like thee and thou? Um, is Moon Knight available?") Thankfully, the resulting film does its source material rather proud, via a committed cast and an approach that doesn't shy away from the over-the-top superheroics. When you're dealing with a flying guy wielding a huge hammer, gritty realism can be overrated, really. Blending elements from the celebrated comic arcs by Walter Simonson and J. Michael Straczynski, the story follows the headstrong Thunder God (Chris Hemsworth) as he is banished to Earth and stripped of his powers by his father Odin (Anthony Hopkins) after inadvertently starting a war with a planet of ticked-off Frost Giants. As his traitorous brother Loki (the terrific Tom Hiddleston) schemes in the wings, Thor must redeem himself and save the universe, with the aid of a beautiful scientist (Natalie Portman). Although director Kenneth Branagh certainly doesn't skimp on the in-jokes and fan-pleasing continuity references (be prepared to stick around after the credits, Marvel fans), his film distinguishes itself by adopting a larger-than-life cosmic Shakespearean air that sets itself apart from both the cerebral, grounded style made fashionable by The Dark Knight and the loose-limbed Rat Packish vibe of the Iron Man series. Glorying in the absolute unreality of its premise, Branagh's film is a swooping, Jack Kirby-inspired saga that brings the big-budget grins on a consistent basis, as well as tying in with the superhero battle royale The Avengers. --Andrew Wright

  • Beowulf and Grendel Beowulf and Grendel | DVD | (24/12/2007) from £2.98  |  Saving you £9.00 (69.30%)  |  RRP £12.99

    Adapted from the Anglo-Saxon epic poem Beowulf Beowulf And Grendal is a medieval adventure that tells the blood-soaked tale of a Norse warrior's battle against the great and murderous troll Grendel. Out of allegiance to the King Hrothgar the much respected Lord of the Danes Beowulf leads a troop of warriors across the sea to rid a village of the marauding monster. The monster Grendel is not a creature of mythic powers but one of flesh and blood - immense flesh and raging blood driven by a vengeance from being wronged while Beowulf a victorious soldier in his own right has become increasingly troubled by the hero-myth rising up around his exploits. Beowulf's willingness to kill on behalf of Hrothgar wavers when it becomes clear that the King is more responsible for the troll's rampages than was first apparent. As a soldier Beowulf is unaccustomed to hesitating. His relationship with the mesmerizing witch Selma creates deeper confusion. Swinging his sword at a great stinking beast is no longer such a simple act. Beowulf is a man caught between sides in this great shift his simple code transforming and falling apart before his eyes. Building toward an inevitable and terrible battle this is a tale where vengeance loyalty and mercy powerfully entwine.
