  • Scarface Scarface | DVD | (22/10/2007) from £7.19  |  Saving you £5.80 (44.60%)  |  RRP £12.99

    Scarface (Dir. Howard Hawks 1932): Generally regarded to be the best - and most brutal - of the classic gangster films the original Scarface tells the story of orginised crime's pinch on the city of Chicago during prohibition. Paul Muni plays Tony Carmonte an ambitious hood with a Napoleonic urge to fight his way to number one gang boss. When the last of the old-style crime bosses is brutally slain down the finger is pointed at Tony and Johnny Loro a rival gangster. However Tony's desire to move up the ladder is about to put him in the firing line of his peers and the police. Produced and directed by the mercurial Howard Hawks Scarface is the movie which established both Paul Muri and his coin flipping aide George Raft as major Hollywood stars. Scarface (Dir. Brian De Palma 1983): Al Pacino gives an unforgettable performance as Tony Montana one of the most ruthless gangsters ever depicted on film in this gripping cult crime epic inspired by the 1932 classic of the same title. Scarface follows the violent career of a small-time Cuban refugee hoodlum who guns his way to the top of Miami's cocaine empire and makes some ruthless friends and enemies on the way to oblivion...

  • Randall And Hopkirk Deceased - The Complete Series 1 [2000] Randall And Hopkirk Deceased - The Complete Series 1 | DVD | (29/10/2001) from £8.95  |  Saving you £4.44 (22.20%)  |  RRP £19.99

    This is the entire first series of Reeves and Mortimer's long-awaited take on the cult classic Randall and Hopkirk (Deceased) and it's surely the most re-watchable of television series, not least because of its improbable plots. The anticipation which preceded the show was a drama in itself. How will it compare with the original? Would Reeves and Mortimer be able to cut it in acting roles? Will the cast be upstaged by her wardrobe? The answers were, of course, "perfectly", "no problem" and "probably not, but the BBC wardrobe department certainly excelled themselves for this series". In fact, the premise of this humorous supernatural detective fantasy (a genre which probably contains nothing other than this series and the original)--a dead private detective comes back as a ghost to assist his partner, who is the only mortal who can see him--could easily have occurred as one of those surreal narratives from the duo's comedy shows. A must-see. On the DVD: the DVD includes a lively behind-the-scenes documentary (broadcast at the beginning of the series), an unfunny collection of outtakes and a rather better music video which comes on like Blue Velvet "re-imagined" by Cubby Broccoli.--Roger Thomas

  • The Day After Tomorrow - Two Disc Edition [2004] The Day After Tomorrow - Two Disc Edition | DVD | (18/10/2004) from £3.19  |  Saving you £21.80 (87.20%)  |  RRP £24.99

    Supreme silliness doesn't stop The Day After Tomorrow from being lots of fun for connoisseurs of epic-scale disaster flicks. After the blockbuster profits of Independence Day and Godzilla, you can't blame director Roland Emmerich for using global warming as a politically correct excuse for destroying most of the northern hemisphere. Like most of Emmerich's films, this one emphasises special effects over such lesser priorities as well-drawn characters and plausible plotting, and his dialogue (cowritten by Jeffrey Nachmanoff) is so laughably trite that it could be entirely eliminated without harming the movie. It's the spectacle that's important here, not the lame, recycled plot about father and son (Dennis Quaid, Jake Gyllenhaal) who endure an end-of-the-world scenario caused by the effects of global warming. So sit back, relax and enjoy the awesome visions of tornado-ravaged Los Angeles, blizzards in New Delhi, Japan pummelled by grapefruit-sized hailstones, and Manhattan flooded by swelling oceans and then frozen by the onset of a modern ice age. It's all wildly impressive, and Emmerich obviously doesn't care if the science is flimsy, so why should you? --Jeff Shannon

  • Gladiator (2000) - Two Disc Set Gladiator (2000) - Two Disc Set | DVD | (20/11/2000) from £2.95  |  Saving you £21.80 (87.20%)  |  RRP £24.99

    Ridley Scott's glossy historical epic Gladiator revitalised the classic sword 'n' sandal genre, bringing both a modern pop-culture sensibility and state-of-the-art computer-generated special effects to what had seemed like a worn-out formula. Essentially a remake of Anthony Mann's stodgy 1964 Fall of the Roman Empire, Gladiator also borrows heavily from Saving Private Ryan in its stunning opening sequence, and employs Ridley's brother Tony Scott's rapid-fire editing style for the remarkably staged Colosseum fights. The overall effect is a hugely impressive but emotionally empty spectacle complemented by Hans Zimmer's bestselling but derivative score. Russell Crowe cements his star status with a brooding, muscular performance helped along by lots of pithily quotable mock-Shakespearean dialogue. But Crowe's Maximus, along with everyone else in the film, is a disappointing two-dimensional stereotype: there's also the ridiculously melodramatic villain (Joaquin Phoenix), the old flame who's still in love with her hero (Connie Nielsen) and the trusty companion (Djimon Hounsou--who seems stuck in these roles). Richard Harris lacks the gravitas to convince as the philosopher-king Marcus Aurelius, and only Oliver Reed, in his very last film, brings some depth to his world-weary ex-gladiator. Still, if Scott's film lacks the profundity of Ben-Hur, Spartacus or even Cleopatra, it remains a kinetic, exciting thrill ride that gives us some sense of what it must have been like to fight and die with a gladius in hand. On the DVD: Gladiator's two-disc set quickly became a must-have on its first release and remains one of the absolute essential DVD purchases. It set the standard both for picture and sound quality (Dolby 5.1 or DTS) as well as providing a second disc fully loaded with excellent special features. Scott's audio commentary is on the first disc, and the second has documentaries about both the history and the film, deleted scenes, storyboards, hidden "Easter Eggs" and more. --Mark Walker

  • The Saint - The Complete Series 1 [1962] The Saint - The Complete Series 1 | DVD | (17/05/2004) from £15.93  |  Saving you £44.06 (73.40%)  |  RRP £59.99

    Long before assuming the mantle of 007, Roger Moore made his name as suave, ultra-sophisticated amateur sleuth Simon Templar in The Saint. First broadcast in 1962--coincidentally the year Dr No appeared in cinemas--the show ran until 1969, by which time Moore was internationally famous and poised to make the move to big-screen Bond. Simon Templar suits Moore's personality well: he plays Leslie Charteris's creation with the merest raised eyebrow reaction to imminent danger and the unflappable demeanour of a man whose first concern is to prevent any creases in his Saville Row suit. Templar's dialogue is sprinkled with trendy Americanisms and the show is filled with American supporting actors in a blatant attempt to sell it to a transatlantic audience (the attempt failed, which is why Moore took on The Persuaders in 1967). A bevy of exotic women and even more exotic foreign locations establish it as a product of the Jet Set era, even though most of the production is in fact studio-bound aside from a handful of establishing shots. The second episode, "The Latin Touch", is typical: supposedly the action takes place in Rome, but its sense of location is fatally undermined by some distinctly dodgy back projection and the casting of Warren (Alf Garnett) Mitchell as an Italian taxi driver. Sophisticated it once was, but it all seems rather quaint now: the suits, the old school tie, the phallic sports car (a Volvo!), and Templar's smug, patronising attitude all grate on modern sensibilities. This is one for nostalgia lovers, certainly, but it hasn't dated too well. On the DVD:Although billed as Series 1, this 10-disc box set contains the first 39 black-and-white episodes, dating from 1962-64. There are a handful of extra features on the first four discs, including some text biographies and fact files, plus an interview with series creator Robert S Baker. Picture and mono sound quality are generally poor, reflecting the age of the original material, which doesn't appear to have been remastered. Still, it's adequate for what it is and shouldn't deter fans from acquiring this generous collection of a cult TV classic. --Mark Walker

    The heroes of 1899 are brought to life with the help of some expensive special effects in The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. From the pages of Victorian literature come Captain Nemo, Dr Jekyll (and his alter ego Mr Hyde), Dorian Gray, Tom Sawyer, the Invisible Man, Mina Harker (from Dracula), and the hunter Allan Quatermain (Sean Connery), all assembled to combat an evil megalomaniac out to conquer the world. It's hardly an original plot, but perhaps that's fitting for a movie sewn together like Frankenstein's monster. It rushes from one frenetic battle to another, replacing sense with spectacle--Nemo's submarine rising from the water, a warehouse full of zeppelins bursting into flame, Venice collapsing into its own canals. It's flashy, dumb, and completely incoherent. Fans of the original comic book will be disappointed. --Bret Fetzer

With the Surprise badly damaged and much of his crew injured Aubrey - the ""Master"" of the Surprise and ""Commander"" of his men - is torn between duty and friendship as he sets sail in a high-stakes chase across two oceans to the far side of the world to intercept and capture their foe. It's a mission that can decide the fate of a nation - or destroy Lucky Jack and his crew. The film is based on the narrative outline of the tenth book in Patrick O'Brien's legendary ""Aubrey/Maturin"" series of high seas novels about the British navy during the Napoleonic Wars.
