Planet Earth | HD DVD | (12/11/2007)
from £8.15 | Saving you £1.00 (2.00%) | RRP
As befits the BBC's reputation for producing some of the world's best nature documentaries, Planet Earth is an epic travelogue, focussing on different ecologies and the unique animals that inhabit them. Once again, Sir David Attenborough provides the narration, as the cameras fly across the surface of the earth, zooming in to give us a bug's eye view one minute, zooming out to give us an eagle's perspective the next. The BBC's cameramen filmed more than 200 locations, resulting in some truly spectacular footage, much of which has never before been seen--such as the rare sight of an endangered snow leopard hunting in the Himalayas, or great white sharks leaping from the water as they hunt. The creators of Planet Earth endured some of the world's most hostile environments, from the deepest ocean depths to an Antarctic blizzard to a fetid, cockroach- and bat-infested cave, just to grab a few moments of film; it's worth watching the "Making of" shorts that accompany each episode, in order to see just what lengths they had to go to. The three extra episodes here--Planet Earth: The Future--provide a sobering finale, as Sir David practically pleads with viewers to cherish the animals that we share this planet with, before it's too late. --Ted Kord
Full Metal Jacket | HD DVD | (20/11/2006)
from £5.10 | Saving you £N/A (N/A%) | RRP
A superb ensemble cast falls in for action in Stanley Kubrick's brilliant saga about the Vietnam War and the dehumanising process that turns people into trained killers. Joker (Matthew Modine) Animal Mother (Adam Baldwin) Gomer (Vincent D'Onofrio) Eightball (Dorian Harewood) Cowboy (Arliss Howard) and more are all plunged into a boot-camp hell pitbulled by a leatherlung D.I. (R. Lee Ermey) who views the would-be devil dogs as grunts maggots or something less. The action is savage the story unsparing the dialogue spiked with scathing humour. 'Full Metal Jacket' from its rigors of basic training to its nightmare of combat in Hue City scores a cinematic direct hit.
March Of The Penguins | HD DVD | (07/05/2007)
from £6.50 | Saving you £N/A (N/A%) | RRP
Coming from a French director Luc Jacquet the Oscar-winning family documentary March Of The Penguins would have to be a love story. And it is in that it follows the mating rituals of the emperor penguin one of the most resilient animals on earth. Each summer after a nourishing period of deep-sea feeding the penguins pop up onto the ice and begin their procession across the frozen tundra of Antarctica. Walking in single file they are a sight to behold. Hundreds converge from every direction moving instinctively toward their mating ground. Once there they mingle and chatter until they find the perfect mate - a monogamous match that will last a year through the brutal winter and into the spring. During that time the mother will birth an egg and then leave for the ocean to feed again. The father will stay to protect the egg through the freezing blizzards and pure darkness of winter which would be deadly to practically any other species. Finally with spring the egg hatches and the baby penguins are born. Mothers return from the sea to reunite with their families and feed the starving newborns while the fathers are finally relieved of their protective duties after months without food. The film is remarkable in its story which is narrated by Morgan Freeman whose dignified voice gives the penguins the grave admiration they deserve. But even more incredible is its photography which shows the penguins hunting underwater sliding on the ice and in the midst of kissing. At one point the camera even zooms inside the mouth of a penguin as it regurgitates for its young. A story of love and more strikingly survival March Of The Penguins is any eye-opening and educational experience.
