from £11.99 | Saving you £3.00 (20.00%) | RRP
Titles Comprise: Dirty Harry: Harry Callahan is a tough streetwise San Francisco cop whom they call Dirty Harry. In this action classic you'll see why - and also why Clint Eastwood's reputation as a premier film star and moviemaker is secure. A rooftop sniper (Andy Robinson) calling himself Scorpio has killed twice and holds the city ransom with the threat of killing again. Harry will nail him one way or the other no matter what the system prescribes. Filming on location director Don Siegel made the City by the Bay a vital part of Dirty Harry a practice continued in its four sequels. Thirty years after its arrival the original remains one of the most gripping police thrillers ever made. Magnum Force: Underworld figures are being murdered all over San Francisco. One by one criminals who have eluded prosecution are getting the justice they deserve justice you'd think Detective Harry Callahan might approve of with a tight-lipped smile. But if you think so you've misjudged Harry - and so have the killers. Written by future directors John Milius and Michael Cimino this Dirty Harry sequel stars Clint Eastwood in his signature role of Callahan here facing an unexpected kind of lawbreaker: one who carries a badge. Sharpshooting rookie motorcycle policemen have turned vigilante. Their real enemy is the system. But the system is what Harry is sworn to protect. And he does - with Magnum Force! The Enforcer: When detective Harry Callahan stops a liquor store hostage standoff in his own no-nonsense way he gets busted back to personnel. But not for long. When terrorists rob an arms warehouse and go on a blood-soaked extortion spree San Francisco's leaders quickly seek out Callahan: The Enforcer. Clint Eastwood takes dead aim again in this third of his five Dirty Harry films. Presaging her four-time Emmy-winning stint as half of TV's Cagney and Lacey Tyne Daly co-stars as Harry's new partner who has two jobs: nailing the terrorists - and winning hard-boiled Harry's confidence. Stoked with brisk humor and hard-hitting mayhem The Enforcer carves another winning notch in the handle of Harry's .44 magnum. Sudden Impact: Sensitive to outcries of police brutality the superiors of San Francisco Detective Harry Callahan have sent him on an out-of-town assignment until things cool down. But wherever Harry goes things just get hotter. Clint Eastwood hits the mark again in Sudden Impact. Callahan's older dirtier and the world hasn't gotten better. Which means this fourth Dirty Harry movie (which Eastwood also directs) is explosively exciting as Callahan tracks a traumatized rape victim (Sondra Locke) coldly gunning down her bygone attackers. Through the five Callahan films the lawman always struck a powerful chord. But Sudden Impact is particularly potent fueled by the line that became a national catchphrase: Go ahead. Make my day. The Dead Pool: Fame isn't detective Harry Callahan's style. He dislikes being grouped with a rock star a film critic and a TV host all slain celebrities in a macabre betting pool called the 'Dead Pool'. Another name just got added and it's his...
Lethal Weapon 1-4 | Blu Ray | (15/11/2010)
from £9.99 | Saving you £40.00 (80.00%) | RRP
Starring Mel Gibson & Danny Glover Lethal Weapon is the first buddy action film franchise. Directed by Richard Donner (Superman 1-3 16 Blocks) the films were a phenomenon in the genre spawning a legacy of films on the heels of its success. Get all of the heart pounding action and side splitting comedy in high-definition Blu-ray for the first time ever! Featuring all 4 original theatrical releases of the ground breaking franchise available in a special collection with a new bonus documentary Lethal Weapon: Martin Riggs (Mel Gibson) is no ordinary cop. He's a Mad Max gone maniacal a man whose killing expertise and suicidal recklessness make him a Lethal Weapon to anyone he works against. Or with. Roger Murtaugh (Danny Glover) is an easygoing homicide detective with a loving family a big house and a pension he doesn't want to lose. Imagine Murtaugh's shock when he learns his partner is a guy with nothing left to lose; wild-eyed burnt-out Martin Riggs. Lethal Weapon is the trill-packed story of two Vietnam-vets-turned-cops who have just one other thing in common; both hate to work with partners. But their partnership becomes the key to survival when a routine murder investigation leads to all-out take-no-prisoners martial-arts-and-machine-guns war with an international heroin ring. Director Richard Donner moves that war at two speeds: fast and faster. Hot LA days and nights explode in one show-topping scene after an other culminating in a no-holds-barred battle between Riggs and his Angel-of-Death nemesis (Gary Busey) - an electrifying sequence incorporating three martial-art-styles and requiring four full nights to film. Fierce fast and frequently funny Lethal Weapon fires off round after round of can't miss entertainment. Lethal Weapon 2: Murtaugh is still the rock-solid family man. Riggs is still the reckless daredevil but now he counts the odds before bucking them. Fun it is. And exciting from its breathless opening chase through L.A. streets to its raging gun-battle finale. In between there's a six-story plummet from a window a booby-trapped toilet a Houdini-like underwater escape and the incredible destruction of a chic hillside slit house 'With Mel and Danny Joe is the third stooge ' director Richard Donner says. That makes three drop-dead funny guys. And one of them is lethal. Lethal Weapon 3: They're back in their most successful most explosive most hilarious smash hit yet. They come they see they kick butt in a caper that has L.A. police detectives Riggs and Murtaugh ripping into a vicious crime ring dealing guns to the streets. Joe Pesci returns as shady ex-mob accountant Leo Getz and Rene Russo adds a lethal kick as Internal Affairs investigator Lorna Cole like Riggs a born risk-taker. Risks are everywhere: a high-rise explodes into dust a housing tract goes up like matchsticks Riggs takes and 80-foot plunge on a motorcycle. Lethal Weapon 3 isn't just more of everything: it's the most! Lethal Weapon 4: Pure dynamite! The Lethal Weapon team has done it again putting the match to the fuse and putting the wow! back on screen for 'Lethal Weapon 4'. Mel Gibson and Danny Glover return as buddy cops Riggs and Murtaugh with Joe Pesci riding comedy shotgun as chatterbox Leo. Murtaugh is still the family man. Riggs is still the gonzo loose cannon and - what's this? - family man. His will he/won't he marriage to Cole (Rene Russo) is one of the new wrinkles in this powerhouse crowd-pleaser that also stars comedy favourite Chris Rock and international action star Jet Li. Wedding bells ammo shells explosive laughter - this one's fully loaded!

The Godfather: (1972) Considered by many to be the greatest movie ever made Francis Ford Coppola's epic masterpiece features Oscar winner Marlon Brando as the head of the Corleone family. Coppola paints a chilling portrait of a Sicilian family's rise and near fall from power in America and the passage of rites from a father to a son who was previously uninvolved in the business. Godfather Part II: (1974) The Godfather Part II is one of the rare breed of cinematic sequels which is as good as and perhaps better than the original. Al Pacino heads the star cast as Michael Corleone heir to the criminal empire established by his Mafioso father the late Don Corleone. Michael is now in charge of all gambling activities in Nevada making certain that any and all political or mob enemies are quickly bought off compromised or disposed of. Throughout the film Michael's travails are paralleled with the early experiences of his father played in flashbacks by Robert DeNiro. The Godfather III: (1990) In the final instalment of the Godfather Trilogy an aging Don Michael Corleone seeks to legitimise his crime family's interests and remove himself from the violent underworld. Now in his sixties Michael is dominated by two passions: freeing his family from crime and finding a suitable successor. That successor could be fiery Vincent (Andy Garcia)... but he may also be the spark that turns Michael's hopes of business legitimacy into an inferno of mob violence.

Romancing The Stone / The Jewel Of The Nile | DVD | (13/08/2001)
from £5.39 | Saving you £9.60 (64.00%) | RRP
In 1984 Romancing the Stone was a huge hit for director Robert Zemeckis (who later went on to make Forrest Gump, Contact and Castaway among others) thanks in no small part to the winning team of Michael Douglas, Kathleen Turner, and Danny DeVito. The chemistry between all three stars is infectious, but Turner steals the show from the guys, playing a pushy romance novelist who gets stuck among some dangerous figures in Colombia and has only a rumpled guide (Michael Douglas) as an ally. Zemeckis--whose specialty at the time was creating set pieces of raucous action (as in his Back to the Future trilogy)--keeps things hopping with lots of kinetic material. --Tom Keogh, Amazon.com The Jewel of the Nile is a moderately entertaining sequel that pales by comparison to its predecessor. Romance novelist Kathleen Turner and retired soldier-of-fortune Michael Douglas return as a now-complacent couple. Bored with life on a yacht, they find excitement thrust upon them when she accepts a speaking engagement in the Middle East. Once there, she is abducted and finds herself involved with the "jewel" everyone is chasing. Douglas teams up once more with Danny DeVito to rescue his love. Less charming and more predictable than the original, this suffers for one simple reason: the characters have nowhere to go. In the original story we watched Turner blossom from timid storyteller to lusty adventuress. In this flick she is too much like all the other action adventure babes we've seen before. The same trio of stars reunited to better effect in DeVito's dark comedy The War of the Roses. --Rochelle O'Gorman, Amazon.com

The Crow : Special Edition | DVD | (27/01/2003)
from £5.45 | Saving you £14.54 (72.70%) | RRP
The Crow set the standard for dark and violent comic-book movies (like Spawn or director Alex Proyas's superior follow-up, Dark City), but it will forever be remembered as the film during which star Brandon Lee (son of martial arts legend Bruce Lee) was accidentally killed on the set by a loaded gun. The filmmakers were able to digitally sample what they'd captured of Lee's performance and piece together enough footage to make the film releasable. Indeed, it is probably more fascinating for that post-production story than for the tale on the screen. The Crow is appropriately cloaked in ominous expressionistic shadows, oozing urban dread and occult menace from every dank, concrete crack, but it really adds up to a simple and perfunctory tale of ritual revenge. Guided by a portentous crow (standing in for Poe's raven), Lee plays a deceased rock musician who returns from the grave to systematically torture and kill the outlandishly violent gang of hoodlums who murdered him and his fiancée the year before. The film is worth watching for its compelling visuals and genuinely nightmarish, otherworldly ambience. --Jim Emerson

The Lord of the Rings Trilogy (Extended Edition Box Set) | DVD | (10/12/2004)
from £22.49 | Saving you £42.50 (65.40%) | RRP
The extended editions of Peter Jackson's The Lord of the Rings present the greatest trilogy in film history in the most ambitious sets in DVD history. In bringing J.R.R. Tolkien's nearly unfilmable work to the screen, Jackson benefited from extraordinary special effects, evocative New Zealand locales, and an exceptionally well-chosen cast, but most of all from his own adaptation with co-writers Fran Walsh and Philippa Boyens, preserving Tolkien's vision and often his very words, but also making logical changes to accommodate the medium of film. While purists complained about these changes and about characters and scenes left out of the films, the almost two additional hours of material in the extended editions (about 11 hours total) help appease them by delving more deeply into Tolkien's music, the characters, and loose ends that enrich the story, such as an explanation of the Faramir-Denethor relationship, and the appearance of the Mouth of Sauron at the gates of Mordor. In addition, the extended editions offer more bridge material between the films, further confirming that the trilogy is really one long film presented in three pieces (which is why it's the greatest trilogy ever--there's no weak link). The scene of Galadriel's gifts to the Fellowship added to the first film proves significant over the course of the story, while the new Faramir scene at the end of the second film helps set up the third and the new Saruman scene at the beginning of the third film helps conclude the plot of the second. To top it all off, the extended editions offer four discs per film: two for the longer movie, plus four commentary tracks and stupendous DTS 6.1 ES sound; and two for the bonus material, which covers just about everything from script creation to special effects. The argument was that fans would need both versions because the bonus material is completely different, but the features on the theatrical releases are so vastly inferior that the only reason a fan would need them would be if they wanted to watch the shorter versions they saw in theaters (the last of which, The Return of the King, merely won 12 Oscars). The LOTR extended editions without exception have set the DVD standard by providing a richer film experience that pulls the three films together and further embraces Tolkien's world, a reference-quality home theater experience, and generous, intelligent, and engrossing bonus features. --David Horiuchi
