Game of Thrones - Season 3 | DVD | (17/02/2014)
from £9.99 | Saving you £28.90 (72.30%) | RRP
In Season 3 family and loyalty will be the overarching themes and many critical plot points from the first two seasons will come to a violent head with several major characters meeting cruel fates. While a primary focus continues to be on King's Landing where the Lannisters barely held onto power after a savage naval onslaught from Stannis Baratheon (brother of the late king) stirrings in the North threaten to alter the overall balance of power in Westeros. Robb Stark King of the North will face a major calamity in his efforts to build on his victories over the Lannisters in Season 2 while further north Mance Rayder (new character played by Ciar&aacute;n Hinds) and his huge army of wildlings continue their inexorable march south to scale the Wall. Across the Narrow Sea Daenerys Targaryen - reunited with her three deadly fast-maturing dragons - attempts to raise an army of slaves to sail with her from Essos in hopes of eventually overthrowing the Iron Throne.

Lockout | DVD | (20/08/2012)
from £2.29 | Saving you £17.70 (88.50%) | RRP
Noisy, boisterous, and ruthlessly propulsive, Lockout crams in such an impressive amount of violence, sentimentality, snarky humour, and general preposterousness that it could only have come from the mind of lunatic French filmmaker Luc Besson (the man responsible, one way or another, for The Fifth Element, La Femme Nikita, and The Transporter, among many others). Clichés abound: While the American president's daughter (Maggie Grace, Lost) is on a humanitarian mission to an outer-space maximum-security prison, the prisoners escape and take over. The authorities send Snow (Guy Pearce, Memento), a government agent accused of a crime he didn't commit, to extract the girl--but Snow has his own agenda. The juggling of motivations is just complicated enough, combined with colourful characters and mid-budget special effects, to keep this rambunctious pulp story in constant motion. Pearce, as charming as ever, has been working out a lot (check out those biceps!), and his chemistry with Grace is entirely suitable. The supporting cast throw themselves into their roles with zest. All in all, far more entertaining than anyone might expect. --Bret Fetzer

Cruising the aisles like some kind of bizarre family-unit the flamboyantly dressed band-members are thrown into crisis when one of their 2 drummers suddenly goes missing. Directed by Ben Gregor and written by Tim Plester 'ANT MUZAK' is a charmingly off-kilter tale of tinned vegetables consumer culture and the fickle nature of fame. Shot over a single weekend on borrowed Super 16mm equipment 'ANT MUZAK' also features a tantalising cameo appearance from former Adam & The Ants bass-player Gary Tibbs. Blake's Junction 7: Imagine the kind of twilight world in which the characters from a bygone British-made space-opera might find themselves making a much-needed pit stop at a Motorway Service Station at 2:45am on a non-descript Tuesday morning...

Happiness - Series 2 | DVD | (08/09/2003)
from £15.99 | Saving you £4.00 (20.00%) | RRP
The second series of Happiness, Paul Whitehouse's rueful midlife crisis sitcom, sees the same cast of characters caught in the same rut but, in the great tradition of sitcom, never really going anywhere. Whitehouse's widower Danny Spencer is still making a tidy living doing the voiceover for a kiddie's animated Kung Fu Nurse Bear, still frustrated that while everyone loves the bear, no one either knows or cares who he is. There are some changes, though: Danny is less sympathetic, more bitter and prattish in this series; Clive Russell's ageing Lothario is still raving and squiring like a twentysomething, but gets a wake-up call; Fiona Allen's Rachel and pathetically, wonderfully whiney husband Mark Heap's marriage suffers a severe blip when the latter lapses hopelessly into an affair with Rachel's best friend Neela. Meanwhile, it's Johnny Vegas and Pearce Quigley as Sid and Charlie, who, having started off their own removals business ("We'll Do Anything!"), provide many of the series' biggest belly laughs, especially in their disposal of a cat they unfortunately run over. A match for the first series, the second year of Happiness is the same mix of ageing baby boomers grumbling over modern pop culture, convincingly inconsequential conversational banter and celebrity guest appearances, including Kathy Burke sportingly playing herself as an obnoxious old trout treating non-celebrities like underlings. On the DVD: Happiness, Series 2 has no extras on the DVD. --David Stubbs

Love Me Till Monday | DVD | (29/09/2014)
from £2.94 | Saving you £10.60 (66.30%) | RRP
Love Me Till Monday follows the story of an English girl trying to find love between the office and her home life. The film looks at how a generation of twenty-something's go in search of love. They don't 'date' or 'grab a coffee' or walk romantically along the Seine in perfectly cut trench coats. They don't hold tight to a handsome man on the back of a Vespa. They dance ironically in circles drink far too much and snog a friend. They eat cheesy chips or cold quiche at 3am. It is a film that lies somewhere between Downton and TOWIE between The City and the countryside between ASBO and PhD. Love Me Till Monday is a story about a 25-year-old middle-middle-class English girl and everything she wants and deserves. A film for the funny ugly and slightly magical English.
