  • The Flying Scot [DVD] The Flying Scot | DVD | (19/01/2015) from £3.85  |  Saving you £6.14 (61.50%)  |  RRP £9.99

    Dissatisfied with the small profits shown by his petty crimes, Ronnie Cowan attempts to pull off the most sensational robbery of all time. He has learned that the Bank of Scotland periodically sends half a million pounds in one-pound notes to London for destruction, and the banknotes are transported on the famous passenger train, The Flying Scot. Cowan assembles a trusted transatlantic team and a brilliant, seemingly foolproof scheme is put into action...Lee Patterson is the man with the audacious plan and fellow Canadian Kay Callard his most glamorous accomplice in this taut heist thriller. Scripted by Carry On stalwart Norman Hudis and based on a story co-written by Danger Man creator Ralph Smart, The Flying Scot (also known as The Mail Bag Robbery) is presented here in a brand-new transfer from the original film elements in its as-exhibited theatrical aspect ratio.SPECIAL FEATURE:Alternate Title Sequence

  • Day Of The Jackal [1973] Day Of The Jackal | DVD | (05/07/2010) from £4.79  |  Saving you £5.20 (52.10%)  |  RRP £9.99

    With its high-intensity plot about an attempt to assassinate French President Charles de Gaulle, the bestselling novel by Frederick Forsyth was a prime candidate for screen adaptation. Director Fred Zinnemann brought his veteran skills to bear on what has become a timeless classic of screen suspense. Not to be confused with the later remake The Jackal starring Bruce Willis (which shamelessly embraced all the bombast that Zinnemann so wisely avoided), this 1973 thriller opts for lethal elegance and low-key tenacity in the form of the Jackal, the suave assassin played with consummate British coolness by Edward Fox. He's a killer of the highest order, a master of disguise and international elusiveness, and this riveting film follows his path to de Gaulle with an intense, straightforward documentary style. Perhaps one of the last great films from a bygone age of pure, down-to-basics suspense (and a kind of debonair European alternative to the American grittiness of The French Connection), The Day of the Jackal is a cat-and-mouse thriller that keeps you on the edge of your seat until its brilliantly executed final scene (pardon the pun), by which time Fox has achieved cinematic immortality as one of the screen's most memorable killers. --Jeff Shannon

  • Vertigo [1958] Vertigo | DVD | (17/10/2005) from £5.00  |  Saving you £4.99 (49.90%)  |  RRP £9.99

    Dreamlike and nightmarishly surreal, Vertigo is Hitchcock's most personal film because it confronts many of the convoluted psychological issues that haunted and fascinated the director. The psychological complexity and the stark truthfulness of their rampant emotions keeps these strangely obsessive characters alive on screen, and Hitchcock understood better than most their barely repressed sexual compulsions, their fascination with death and their almost overwhelming desire for transcendent love. James Stewart finds profound and disturbing new depths in his psyche as Scotty, the tortured acrophobic detective on the trail of a suicidal woman apparently possessed by the ghost of someone long dead. Kim Novak is the classical Hitchcockian blonde whose icy exterior conceals a churning, volcanic emotional core. The agonised romance of Bernard Herrmann's score accompanies the two actors as a third and vitally important character, moving the film along to its culmination in an ecstasy of Wagnerian tragedy. Of course Hitch lavished especial care on every aspect of the production, from designer Edith Head's costumes (he, like Scotty, was most insistent on the grey dress), to the specific colour scheme of each location, to the famous reverse zoom "Vertigo" effect (much imitated, never bettered). The result is Hitch's greatest work and an undisputed landmark of cinema history. On the DVD: This disc presents the superb restored print of this film in a wonderful widescreen (1.85:1) anamorphic transfer, with remastered Dolby digital soundtrack. There's a half-hour documentary made in 1996 about the painstaking two-year restoration process, plus an informative commentary from the restorers Robert Harris and James Katz, who are joined by original producer Herbert Coleman. There are also text features on the production, cast and crew, plus a trailer for the theatrical release of the restoration. This is an undeniably essential requirement for every DVD collection. --Mark Walker

  • The Departed [Blu-ray] [2006] The Departed | Blu Ray | (13/08/2007) from £5.60  |  Saving you £23.00 (76.70%)  |  RRP £29.99

    Cops or criminals; when you're facing a loaded gun what's the difference? A big-budget Hollywood star power remake of the Hong Kong classic crime thriller Infernal Affairs. Two men operate on different sides of the law; one a mole with the Boston State Police department the other within the Irish mafia. When bloodshed breaks out on the streets each mole is despatched to discover the other's identity in a race against time... Marty finally collected the Best Director statuette at the 2007 Oscars after decades of bad luck. Not only that but the Departed also picked up awards for Best Editing Best Adapted Screenplay and Best film!

  • Face/Off [1997] Face/Off | DVD | (11/06/2001) from £1.50  |  Saving you £12.50 (78.20%)  |  RRP £15.99

    At his best, director John Woo turns action movies into ballets of blood and bullets grounded in character drama. Face/Off marks Woo's first American film to reach the pitched level of his best Hong Kong work (Hard-Boiled). He takes a patently absurd premise--hero and villain exchange identities by literally swapping faces in science-fiction plastic surgery--and creates a double-barrelled revenge film driven by the split psyches of its newly redefined characters. FBI agent Sean Archer (John Travolta) must play the villain to move through the underworld while psychotic terrorist Castor Troy (Nicolas Cage) becomes a perversely paternal family man, while using every tool at his disposal to destroy his nemesis. Travolta vamps Cage's tics and flamboyant excess with the grace of a dancer after his transformation from cop to criminal, while Cage plays the sullen, bottled-up agent excruciatingly trapped behind the face of the man who killed his son. His attempts to live up to the terrorist's reputation become cathartic explosions of violence that both thrill and terrify him. This is merely icing on the cake for action fans, the dramatic backbone for some of the most visceral action thrills ever. Woo fills the screen with one show-stopping set-piece after another, bringing a poetic grace to the action freakout with sweeping camerawork and sophisticated editing. This marriage of melodrama and mayhem ups the ante from cops-and-robbers clichés to a conflict of near-mythic levels. --Sean Axmaker

  • Dead Man's Shoes [Blu-ray] [2004] Dead Man's Shoes | Blu Ray | (21/09/2009) from £8.89  |  Saving you £7.10 (44.40%)  |  RRP £15.99

    The fourth feature from Shane Meadows (This Is England A Room for Romeo Brass) one of the UK's most exciting directors Dead Man's Shoes is a gritty yet fiercely moral tale of gangland retribution. Two brothers return to the hometown they left eight years earlier to find it still run by the same gang of small-time drug dealers and petty thugs. Their purpose it soon becomes clear is not reunion but revenge - a quest of particular significance for Richard (Paddy Considine - Hot Fuzz The Bourne Ultimatum) the leader of the two whose obsessive desire to even the score will lead them into dangerous territory. Evoking Get Carter in its avenging brother scenario and featuring an outstanding central performance from Considine (not to mention a cracking score featuring Bonnie Prince Billy and Aphex Twin) Dead Man's Shoes is Meadows' finest film to date.
