Girls' Night | DVD | (07/06/2004)
from £29.95 | Saving you £-23.96 (-400.00%) | RRP
The Girls' Night of the title refers to Friday night, the one time of escape from the daily grind for longstanding best friends and factory co-workers, Dawn and Jackie. And Friday night means bingo. One evening their dream comes true when Dawn (the cautious, caring one) scoops £100,000, but the savage twist in the tale is that even before she gets the cheque she discovers she has an inoperable brain tumour. Cue Jackie (the spontaneous, irresponsible one) fulfilling Dawn's lifetime ambition with a holiday in Las Vegas ("Come on, we've got an hour to get the plane"). And from then on it's a buddy movie with inescapable resonances of Thelma and Louise, though the difference here is that the protagonists are two ordinary middle-aged women. Brenda Blethyn and Julie Walters are a magical pairing, with both giving mesmerising moving performances (honorary mention should also be made of Cody, the one sympathetic male character in the film, magnificently played by Kris Kristofferson). Though death is ever-present, this is by no means a depressing movie; rather the opposite, in fact, with a remarkably upbeat ending. If there's a message to be found here, it's that even the most apparently ordinary people can be extraordinary given the right circumstances. On the DVD: As well as the original trailer, there is on-location feature
Dolphin Tale (Blu-ray 3D + Blu-ray + DVD + Digital Copy) | Blu Ray | (13/02/2012)
from £21.99 | Saving you £5.00 (18.50%) | RRP
Inspired by a true story, Dolphin Tale is about courage, ingenuity, and never giving up. Sawyer (Nathan Gamble) is a young boy who's struggling with school and doesn't have many friends other than his cousin Kyle (Austin Stowell). When Kyle, a star swimmer, joins the army to earn money for college and is called to active duty, it looks like Sawyer is destined to spend his summer alone tinkering in the garage and attending summer school. Sawyer stumbles upon a dolphin that's been severely injured, becomes fascinated by dolphins, and is suddenly intellectually engaged like never before. In spite of his shyness, he forms a friendship with marine rescue doctor Clay (Harry Connick Jr.) and his daughter Hazel (Cozi Zuehlsdorff) and, more importantly, a special and very powerful bond with the rescued dolphin, who's dubbed Winter. As the newly formed team struggles to save Winter's life and ensure her continued safety, financial concerns, an accident that leaves Kyle crippled for life, and a hurricane all seem to join forces against them. In the end, it is Sawyer's determination, coupled with a little bit of luck and a lot of ingenuity from an army doctor (Morgan Freeman) who specializes in prosthetics, that helps make each member of the team, including Kyle and Winter, whole again. The talented cast does a great job of creating completely believable characters, but Gamble, Zuehlsdorff, Connick, Freeman, Stowell, and of course Winter, who plays herself, all deserve special mention. While the story of an injured animal rescued and rehabilitated has certainly been told before, this film is emotionally powerful and will absolutely captivate children and adults alike.

Recently released from prison after serving an eight-year stretch for killing a mob boss ex-cop Hawk (Kristofferson) returns to his native home of Rain City and takes up residence in a room at the back of the caf'' owned and run by his former lover Wanda (Bujold). At the same time a beautiful waif-like young woman Georgia (Singer) her sociopathic boyfriend Coop (Carradine) and their new-born child also arrive in their trailer and make the caf'''s parking lot their temporary home. Desperately in need of money Georgia takes on a waitressing job at Wanda's place while Coop slowly but surely is lured into a life of petty crime. Already a regular customer at the caf'' Hawk soon falls under Georgia's spell and sets out to seduce her during the lonely nights that Coop is not around. Meanwhile Coop's criminal activities have attracted the attention of gangland boss Hilly Blue (Divine) a ruthless crimelord whose method of dealing with freelance crooks operating on his turf extends to drowning them in their cars. When Coop's life is threatened by Hilly and his men Hawk finds himself in a position where he must decide to put his own life on line by helping him or risk losing the woman he most desires. Humorously and stylistically employing the classic film noir themes of crime responsibility loyalty and love Rudolph's film presents a refreshingly original take on the genre one that is brilliantly enhanced by composer Mark Isham's (In The Valley Of Elah; The Black Dahlia; Crash) superbly evocative score.
