Snatch - Two Disc Set | DVD | (19/02/2001)
from £4.45 | Saving you £7.54 (62.90%) | RRP
Snatch, the follow-up to the Guy Ritchie's breakthrough film--the high-energy, expletive-strewn cockney-gangster movie Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels--hardly breaks new ground being, well, another high-energy, expletive-strewn cockney-gangster movie. Okay, so there are some differences. This time around our low-rent hoodlums are battling over dodgy fights and stolen diamonds rather than dodgy card games and stolen drugs. There has been some minor reshuffling of the cast too with Sting and Dexter Fletcher making way for the more bankable Benicio Del Toro and Brad Pitt, the latter pretty much stealing the whole shebang as an incomprehensible Irish gypsy. Moreover, no one can complain about the amount of extras featured on this DVD that includes 15 minutes of deleted scenes, a making-of documentary, trailer, storyboards, production notes and commentary from Ritchie himself. And, sure, people who really, really liked Lock, Stock--or have the memory of a goldfish--will really, really like this. The suspicion lingers, however, that if the director doesn't do something very different next time around then his career may prove to be considerably shorter than that of 'er indoors. --Clark Collis
Pulp Fiction (Collector's Edition) | DVD | (14/10/2002)
from £3.52 | Saving you £6.04 (50.40%) | RRP
With Pulp Fiction writer-director Quentin Tarantino stunned the filmmaking world, exploding into prominence as a cinematic heavyweight contender after initial success with 1992's Reservoir Dogs. But Pulp Fiction was more than just the follow-up to an impressive first feature, or the winner of the Palme d'Or at Cannes Film Festival, or a script stuffed with the sort of juicy bubblegum dialogue actors just love to chew, or the vehicle that re-established John Travolta on the A-list, or the relatively low-budget ($8 million) independent showcase for an ultra-hip mixture of established marquee names and rising stars from the indie scene (among them Samuel L Jackson, Uma Thurman, Bruce Willis, Ving Rhames, Harvey Keitel, Christopher Walken, Tim Roth, Amanda Plummer, Julia Sweeney, Kathy Griffin and Phil Lamar). It was more, even, than an unprecedented $100-million-plus hit for indie distributor Miramax. Pulp Fiction was a sensation. It packs so much energy and invention into telling its non-chronologically interwoven short stories (all about temptation, corruption and redemption among modern criminals, large and small) it leaves viewers both exhilarated and exhausted--hearts racing and knuckles white from the ride. (Oh, and the infectious, surf-guitar-based soundtrack is tastier than a Royale with Cheese.) --Jim Emerson

Love, Honour And Obey | DVD | (05/05/2008)
from £3.59 | Saving you £6.10 (61.10%) | RRP
It must have seemed like fun at the time: a group of mates got together to play gangsters, ran around London's streets waving guns, dishing out beatings and shouting profanities at the top of their mockney lungs. It's the kind of game that any group of lads with a camcorder and a six-pack might indulge in on a Sunday afternoon. Unfortunately, these particular mates happen to be famous, so the result--Love, Honour and Obey--actually saw the dark of cinemas.Ray Winstone is Ray, head honcho of a North London crime outfit; Sean Pertwee is Sean, leader of the South London pack. Their organisations co-exist with a minimum of fuss, based on respect for each other's turf. Then Ray's nephew, Jude (Jude Law), introduces his mate, Jonny (Jonny Lee Miller), into the firm and the equilibrium goes up in gun smoke. Jonny's a hothead who disrespects Ray's rules and instigates a private feud with Matthew (Rhys Ifans), his opposite number in Sean's gang, and soon there are gun battles raging through the capital.Perhaps directors Dominic Anciano and Ray Burdis regard their work as avant-garde, a deconstruction of the movie-making myth or a dissection of genre--or maybe they are just having a laugh at our expense. Either way the result is tortuous, egotistical film making. To be fair, Love, Honour and Obey is at least a step up from their last effort, Final Cut, in which much the same cast again paraded under their own names and made utter fools of themselves, but that's like saying the Zeebrugge ferry disaster wasn't as bad as the Titanic. Still, at least it's not all boys playing with their penis extensions: there's also Sadie Frost and Denise Van Outen. --Jamie Graham
24 Hour Party People - Single Disc Edition | DVD | (19/07/2004)
from £5.99 | Saving you £7.00 (53.90%) | RRP
Beginning during the dawn of Factory Records--as Tony Wilson throws himself off a cliff for Granada TV--24 Hour Party People attempts to capture the essence of the ill-fated label which spawned Joy Division/New Order, The Happy Mondays and the venue that started modern Club Culture, the Hacienda in Manchester. Director Michael Winterbottom takes a very different approach to most music biographies, by making the film self-aware that it is a film and ironically looking at its own role within the history of the "Mad-chester" scene. Inspired by Wilson's autobiographical musings, the film is narrated in character by Steve Coogan as Wilson. He offers sporadic moments from his life--his "career" as a presenter at Granada and his several marriages--which in turn influence the destructive nature of the label he founded. Coogan's Wilson gives monologues to camera which remind the audience that what they are watching is only his perspective. Yet with Coogan in the title role it's impossible to ignore the similarities between Wilson and Alan Partridge; and although this adds instant humour to the film it also instantly pins Wilson with the comic "Partridge" tag of fated fool. The cinematography, on the other hand, tries faithfully to embody the feeling of the times, from grainy celluloid for the punk-like Joy Division gigs to bright, clean-cut images for the birth of the Hacienda. The film also benefits from an amazing soundtrack and strong supporting characters. It all adds up to a picture that's purely British in character: imbued with irony, down-and-out inspiration, and a touch of the surreal. On the DVD: 24 Hour Party People comes as a two-disc set, but there really is little need. Disc 1 is loaded with great extras, such as the deleted scenes, commentaries and Mad-chester musings, but the second disc is a little on the dull side. This really could have been just a single great DVD. There's an excellent screen and audio transfer that brings both the music and the lurid colours to life and the disc also offers that all-important function for hardcore clubbers: a hard of hearing option. --Nikki Disney

Bruno | DVD | (09/11/2009)
from £2.59 | Saving you £17.40 (87.00%) | RRP
Sacha Baron Cohen and 'Borat' director Larry Charles reunite to bring the brilliantly tasteless exploits of Bruno to the big screen! When Europe turns its back on Bruno he crosses the ocean to find fame in the US but how will the American public take to the outrageous Austrian? Very badly! When clueless homosexual fashionista Bruno the presenter of Funkyzeit (the most popular fashion programme in every German-speaking country apart from Germany) is effectively banned from Europe following a disastrous incident at a show he sets his sights on America. With his former assistant's assistant Lutz as his only ally the fashionmonger tries to conquer the US as only he knows how - as tastelessly as possible! Will Bruno achieve the fame he so desperately craves? Play Review Borat helmer Larry Charles (director/executive producer on Larry David's Curb Your Enthusiasm) returns to direct fearless comedy assassin Sacha Baron Cohen (Talladega Nights) in Bruno - a socio-political satire about the American cult of celebrity fashion and the treatment of homosexuals. The third of Baron Cohen's comic creations to make a cinematic bow following Ali G Indahouse: The Movie and Borat: Cultural Learnings Of America For Make Benefit Glorious Nation Of Kazakhstan the flamboyantly homosexual clueless Austrian fashion guru is even more extreme and provocative. So how does he translate to the big screen? Mixing staged scenes with real-life footage Bruno is a mockumentary that pulls no punches. From Bruno's unsuccessful stint on NBC's Medium to an appearance on The Richard Bey Show - where he reveals to the African American audience that he swapped an iPod for his black baby OJ - the film keeps on pushing the line further and further. Exposing narrow-minded homophobia through humour in much the same way as Borat tackled racism it's hard not to watch certain scenes without cringing or sometimes fearing for Baron Cohen's life - the denouement at Straight Dave's Man Slammin' Maxout in Fort Smith Arkansas provokes a near riot! It's a damn funny movie revelling in absurdity confrontation and reaction. Would any other comedian attempt to seduce a former presidential candidate or encounter the homophobic religious group Westboro Baptist Church whilst trapped in a bondage mechanism with another man? Bruno is arguably even funnier than Borat and its satirical elements are certainly stronger and even more provocative. The last of his televised characters to switch to the big screen what now for Baron Cohen? Is he now too recognisable to get away with this style of mockumentary? Personally we'd love to see what Bruno and Lutz did next or even a Borat sequel but maybe it's time for the comedian to step out from behind his celebrated comic guises and tackle something new? If he can top Bruno then we'd definitely like to see it!

Freddy Got Fingered | DVD | (29/04/2002)
from £3.99 | Saving you £9.00 (69.30%) | RRP
Freddy Got Fingered, a quite astonishingly tasteless comedy from director-writer-star Tom Green, is especially for those audiences who feel that there's something stuffily restrained and fuddy-duddyish about the Farrelly Brothers and South Park and that Chris Morris treats controversial subjects with a tactfulness that borders on the overly fastidious. A gawky, goateed 28-year-old who still lives at home, Gordo (Green) wants to be an animator but mostly goofs around in a strangely hysterical manner that goes beyond the expected Jim Carrey style cut-up to become disturbingly like complete dementia. Gordo's main clash is with his tyrannical but also semi-insane father (Rip Torn), but his life also includes a wheelchair-bound girlfriend (Marisa Coughlan) who likes having her paralysed legs caned and a smug younger brother (the Freddy of the title) who lands up in a home for sexually abused kids (they all sit around watching The Texas Chainsaw Massacre on video) when Gordo casually accuses Dad of child abuse during a family counselling session. Typical gags include: Green dressed up in a fresh deerskin being hit by a truck; Green masturbating an elephant to spray Torn with a firehose gusher. Guest appearances: the star’s spouse Drew Barrymore (who featured Green in Charlie's Angels), baseball star Shaquille O'Neal, Anthony Michael Hall, Julie Hagerty from Airplane!. It's more horrible than funny, though there is something almost refreshing about its absolute ruthlessness, which is only abandoned in an out-of-place father-son bonding scene near the end. The film also has an interesting 1970s soundtrack, mostly of punk standards that fit the anything-to-irritate-you attitude. --Kim Newman
