  • 24 Hour Party People - Single Disc Edition [2002] 24 Hour Party People - Single Disc Edition | DVD | (19/07/2004) from £5.99  |  Saving you £7.00 (53.90%)  |  RRP £12.99

    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

  • Snatch [Blu-ray] [2000] Snatch | Blu Ray | (12/10/2009) from £5.99  |  Saving you £14.00 (70.00%)  |  RRP £19.99

    Guy Ritchie writer/director of Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels delivers another awe-inspiring directorial masterpiece. Snatch is an edgy and hilarious film about a diamond heist gone wrong a colourful Irish gypsy turned prizefighter and a very temperamental dog. In the heart of gangland two novice unlicensed boxing promoters Turkish (Jason Statham) and Tommy (Stephen Graham) get roped into organising a bare-knuckled fight with local kingpin villain and fellow boxing promoter Brick Top (Alan Ford). But it all goes wrong when Brick Top's fighter who is rigged to win is suddenly knocked out by the boys' wildcard Irish gypsy boxer One Punch Mickey O'Neil (Brad Pitt). Unfortunately things go from bad to worse as Mickey starts playing by his own rules and the duo find they are heading for a whole lot of trouble.

  • The Aristocrats [2005] The Aristocrats | DVD | (30/01/2006) from £5.59  |  Saving you £10.40 (65.00%)  |  RRP £15.99

    No nudity. No violence. Unspeakable obscenity! A smash hit of the 2005 Sundance film festival this is an outrageous star-studded comedy extravaganza that celebrates the art of improvisation and the finest (not to mention the most foul-mouthed) traditions of stand up. Co-creators and veteran alternative comedians Penn Jillette (of Penn & Teller fame) and Paul Provenza capitalise on their insider status to invite over 100 of their closest friends (who just happen to be some o

  • Goodbye Charlie Bright [2001] Goodbye Charlie Bright | DVD | (18/07/2005) from £6.43  |  Saving you £3.56 (35.60%)  |  RRP £9.99

    Goodbye Charlie Bright, Nick Love's 2001 rites of passage drama about a teenage group of petty criminals in a steaming South London summer, was never going to be a massive box-office hit. But it might prove to be a rather significant piece in the long run. If Paul Nicholls' star continues to rise as anticipated, it may well come to be seen as the film which first revealed his genuine potential as a big screen actor. The former Eastenders heartthrob turns in a fine, sensitive performance as Charlie, gradually realising that he has to find a way to escape the constraints of the life that is shaping up in front of him. However, this isn't solely a Nicholls vehicle. Roland Manookian is outstanding as Justin, the dangerous, troubled companion for whom Charlie is the only source of stability. There's another good cameo from the ever-reliable Phil Daniels as an unbalanced Falklands veteran who becomes the catalyst for the rupture in their relationship and Charlie's escape. Other familiar faces cropping up include two more Eastenders veterans Nicola Stapleton and Edna Doré, and television presenter Dani Behr who is particularly good as the nurse Charlie befriends. The story is slight, but between them, partly thanks to Love's tight direction and script, the actors in Goodbye Charlie Bright generate a rather haunting little tragicomedy with moments of real pathos which deserves a long shelf life. --Piers Ford

  • Dirty Sanchez Dirty Sanchez | DVD | (22/01/2007) from £5.59  |  Saving you £14.40 (72.00%)  |  RRP £19.99

    If you think you've seen it all in Dirty Sanchez then you'd better think again! This is the feature-length version of MTV's Jackass-esque stunt crew from the Welsh valleys. The Sanchez team have been challenged by Beelzebub himself to reenact the seven deadly sins in stunt form or their souls are his. They add world travel to the budget and a movie is born. They enact Sloth in the UK Anger in Russia Lust rather fittingly is acted out in Bangkok Envy in Thailand's Koh Phi Phi (purely for the name one assumes) Pride in Tokyo Gluttony in Mexico and Greed in The Dominican Republic. Motorhead's Lemmy provides a sleazy grimy soundtrack.

  • Beerfest [2006] Beerfest | DVD | (25/12/2006) from £2.97  |  Saving you £11.02 (61.30%)  |  RRP £17.99

  • Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back [2001] Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back | DVD | (09/09/2002) from £5.95  |  Saving you £9.57 (59.80%)  |  RRP £15.99

    With sidesplitting dialogue and rampant profanity, Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back reunites Kevin Smith's dynamic duo in supreme lowbrow style. It's the fifth comedy in Smith's celebrated New Jersey "trilogy". Here Quick-Stop potheads Jay (Jason Mewes) and Silent Bob (Smith) wreak vengeance on Hollywood, where Miramax is making a "Bluntman & Chronic" feature inspired by J and SB, but without their permission. En route from Jersey to La La Land, Jay and his "hetero lifemate" encounter sexy jewel thieves (including the delightful Shannon Elizabeth), a precocious orang-utan, a dimwit wildlife marshal (Will Ferrell), and a non-stop parade of in-jokes, harmless (yet controversial) gay jokes, and splendid celebrity cameos. While gently biting the Miramax hand that feeds him, and paying affectionate homage to the Star Wars saga, Smith sheds all inhibitions to give Jay and Silent Bob a stellar send off that's nasty, sassy and undeniably hilarious. --Jeff Shannon

  • Sexy Beast [2001] Sexy Beast | DVD | (13/01/2003) from £3.50  |  Saving you £4.64 (46.40%)  |  RRP £9.99

    Fed up with the seemingly endless succession of Brit gangster flicks? Or just wish that someone would reinvent the genre? Either way, Sexy Beast is for you. While reintroducing some of the well-worn characters of recent years, the film at least attempts to take a sideways look at the genre. Centred on the lives of two ex-con ex-pats and their new lives in Spain, the story is one concerning the conflict between the past and the present. Ray Winston is Gel, who, enjoying his life of early retirement in the sun, finds his loyalties called into question when asked to return to Britain to take part in an audacious heist. There's not much else to say plot wise, but the script and cast is so strong that the film gets away with it. Eschewing the younger brat pack in favour of the likes of Winston, Ian McShane, Amanda Redman (sadly under-used) and Ben Kingsley (whose ultra foul-mouthed Don steals every scene) gives the film a calm authority. Quite violent--although more in language than action--but not without its moments of brilliant humour, Sexy Beast is an intelligent, enthralling and welcome addition to the gangster-film genre. --Phil Udell

  • Festival Festival | DVD | (28/11/2005) from £5.59  |  Saving you £14.40 (72.00%)  |  RRP £19.99

  • Zack And Miri Make A Porno [Blu-ray] [2008] Zack And Miri Make A Porno | Blu Ray | (23/03/2009) from £5.39  |  Saving you £19.60 (78.40%)  |  RRP £24.99

Lifelong platonic friends Zack (Rogen) and Miri (Banks) look to solve their respective cashflow problems by making an adult film together.

  • Spun [2003] Spun | DVD | (05/04/2004) from £5.59  |  Saving you £14.40 (72.00%)  |  RRP £19.99

    Spun is an unclassifiable ensemble piece, intentionally bleached of soulfulness and high on visual invention and comic depravity. Set in northern Los Angeles, where meth freaks lurch from one motel room to another in search of companionship and a score, the film stars Jason Schwartzman as Ross, whose life is rapidly disintegrating. Fielding phone messages from his mother and trying in vain to reach an old girlfriend, Ross spends most of his time on a feverish circuit with the half-mad Cookie (Mena Suvari) and Nikki (Brittany Murphy), the dangerously paranoid Spider Mike (John Leguizamo), and a macho drugmaker called the Cook (Mickey Rourke). Director Jonas Akerlund's story is non-existent, but then again Spun is driven by the blurry, hellish energy of a life lived on speed. An obvious influence is Darren Aronofsky's Requiem for a Dream, but Akerlund is interested in nightmarish set pieces than tiny horrors of misfired nerve endings and ravaged time. --Tom Keogh

  • Jay And Silent Bob Strike Back [Blu-ray] Jay And Silent Bob Strike Back | Blu Ray | (19/09/2011) from £8.89  |  Saving you £16.10 (64.40%)  |  RRP £24.99

  • Don Jon [Blu-ray + UV Copy] [2013] [Region Free] Don Jon | Blu Ray | (24/03/2014) from £5.99  |  Saving you £17.00 (73.90%)  |  RRP £22.99

    Jon Martello (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) is a strong handsome good old fashioned guy. His buddies call him Don Jon due to his ability to pull a different woman every weekend but even the finest fling doesn't compare to the bliss he finds alone in front of the computer watching pornography. Barbara Sugarman (Scarlett Johansson) is a bright beautiful good old fashioned girl. Raised on romantic Hollywood movies she's determined to find her Prince Charming and ride off into the sunset. Wrestling with good old fashioned expectations of the opposite sex Jon and Barbara struggle against a media culture full of false fantasies to try and find true intimacy in this unexpected comedy written and directed by Joseph Gordon-Levitt.

  • Cecil B Demented [2000] Cecil B Demented | DVD | (10/09/2001) from £6.71  |  Saving you £12.00 (60.00%)  |  RRP £19.99

    They say that the best comedy always has a point to make. John Waters' Cecil B Demented is certainly no exception. Using the director's unique brand of melodramatic kitsch comedy the film offers an exposé of popular Hollywood cinema. The Sprocket Holes are a gang of underground cinema anarchists with a life or death goal to destroy Hollywood--"Power to the people who punish bad cinema" cries their leader and director Cecil B Demented (superbly played by Stephen Dorff who appears to have been taking lessons at the Gary Oldman school of acting). After kidnapping Honey Whitlock (Melanie Griffith) to appear in their underground guerrilla film they return to their hideout--an old movie theatre--to begin the dramatic make-over of Honey from Hollywood prima donna to underground cinema queen. Exposing the realms of media manipulation--it's amazing what a little anarchy can do to help your cause--the Sprocket Holes gain notoriety and a fan base from their violent actions. Although Waters seems ill at ease with choreographing violence, the farcical nature of these aggressive scenes adds another level of humour to his exploration of the divide between mainstream and underground cinema. The director could have done more to explore the fickle nature of the movie starlet, however, and the opening scenes with Honey Whitlock as a superficial two-faced star are bland: Griffith is perhaps not made for the part of a Hollywood bitch. Easier to stomach than Pink Flamingos, like Serial Mom before it Cecil B Demented will appeal to a wider audience, who perhaps will come away believing that Forrest Gump is not a cinematic masterpiece after all. On the DVD: The menu is probably the most notable feature of the disc, with a nodding-dog Cecil B Demented and a crazy rodent popping up everywhere it fits perfectly with the Waters style of humour. The special features simply consist of a bland trailer and some mundane interviews with the main cast and crew, which offer little towards appreciating the humour of the movie. With a 5.1 Dolby digital audio track and widescreen ratio the disc at least offers a high standard of viewing pleasure, no budget spared. --Nikki Disney

  • Harold And Kumar Escape From Guantanamo Bay [Blu-ray] [2008] Harold And Kumar Escape From Guantanamo Bay | Blu Ray | (22/09/2008) from £5.39  |  Saving you £19.60 (78.40%)  |  RRP £24.99

  • Holy Smoke [2000] Holy Smoke | DVD | (29/04/2002) from £4.95  |  Saving you £4.61 (46.10%)  |  RRP £9.99

    New Zealand film director Jane Campion is one of a kind. Forget money and fame; she's inspired by the pleasure of sharing her cinematic dreams with friends and film audiences. Her globetrotting heroines (in such films as Angel at My Table, The Piano, The Portrait of a Lady) may be wilful, crazed, self-absorbed, wrong--but who can resist joining these passionate women on their voyages of self-discovery, whether they lead to safe harbour or a dead end? Holy Smoke opens deliriously in a magical India, saturated with light, colour, sensuality. Celebrated by Neil Diamond's opening anthem, "Holly Holy", Ruth Baron (Kate Winslet, delivering a breathtakingly luminous performance) explores a world that encourages spiritual epiphany--and falls hard for the cartoonish guru who opens her "third eye". Back home in Australia, her hilariously dysfunctional, distinctly down-to-earth family hires hotshot deprogrammer PJ Waters (Harvey Keitel, his dyed hair and cowboy boots telegraphing desperate machismo) to cure Ruth. In an isolated Outback shack, the two of them wrestle each other for control of their souls--and bodies, too. This duel's in deadly earnest: Ruth assaults Waters's petrified masculinity; PJ aims to strip this radiant girl of her unexamined faith. Their wild ride--funny, brutal, erotic--towards brand-new selfhood is punctuated by indelible images: Ruth dancing in a white sari beside an emu corral; naked in the night, Ruth offering her lush body to her tormentor; lost in the desert, cross-dressed in red gown, PJ "saved" by a golden vision of Ruth as a magnificent Indian goddess. For those who love the way movies can sometimes project truth and beauty, Holy Smoke is a feast for the eyes and mind. --Kathleen Murphy, Amazon.com On the DVD: Holy Smoke sees good overall quality of the 1.85:1 anamorphic transfer, with the graininess coming from the film rather than the transfer. The soundtrack (which is mostly populated with Neil Diamond tracks) is rich, but what really raises this DVD above mediocrity though (and it had to be something seeing as it is woefully short of extras) is the commentary track. Winslet and cowriter Anna Campion (Jane's sister) are given free reign to talk about their experiences of filming Holy Smoke as well as their thoughts on India, cults and nudity. The result is always interesting, often entertaining and fans of Winslet will fall in love with the graceful star all over again. --Kristen Bowditch

  • Red Mist [Blu-ray] [2008] Red Mist | Blu Ray | (13/07/2009) from £5.99  |  Saving you £10.69 (53.50%)  |  RRP £19.99

  • Pulp Fiction [1994] Pulp Fiction | DVD | (08/01/2001) from £3.76  |  Saving you £17.62 (76.60%)  |  RRP £22.99

    With the knockout one-two punch of 1992's Reservoir Dogs and 1994's Pulp Fiction writer-director Quentin Tarantino stunned the filmmaking world, exploding into prominence as a cinematic heavyweight contender. 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 ultrahip 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. No, it was not the Second Coming (I actually think Reservoir Dogs is a more substantial film; and PT Anderson outdid Tarantino in 1997 by making his directorial debut with two even more mature and accomplished pictures, Hard Eight and Boogie Nights). But Pulp Fiction packs so much energy and invention into telling its nonchronologically interwoven short stories (all about temptation, corruption, and redemption amongst 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
