Buster Keaton: 3 Films (Sherlock Jr., The General, Steamboat Bill, Jr.) Limited Edition Blu-ray Boxed Set | Blu Ray | (20/11/2017)
from £27.29 | Saving you £N/A (N/A%) | RRP
Eureka Entertainment to release BUSTER KEATON: 3 FILMS, a collection of essential films from one of the greats of cinema operating at the height of his powers, as part of The Masters of Cinema Series on Blu-ray from stunning new 4K restorations in a lavish limited edition (3000 copies) 3-disc hardbound boxed set on 16 October 2017. Between 1920 and 1929, Buster Keaton created a peerless run of feature films that established him as arguably the greatest actor-director in the history of the movies. Collected here are three key films from that era; Sherlock Jr., The General and Steamboat Bill, Jr. Together they represent a true master at his peak, and The Masters of Cinema Series is proud to present all three films from stunning new 4K restorations available for the first time on Blu-ray anywhere in the world. Sherlock Jr. (1924) A film projectionist (and amateur detective) offers to solve the case of a missing watch, but is instead framed for the crime himself. Desperate to clear his name, the projectionist dreams of being the great Sherlock Jr., and in one of cinemas most iconic sequences, literally steps into the screen to bring his fantasies to life. The General (1926) When union spies steal his locomotive (along with his girlfriend), a plucky railway engineer pursues them doggedly across enemy lines. Containing one of the most memorable chase sequences in the history of filmmaking, The General is widely considered to be Keaton's masterpiece. Steamboat Bill, Jr. (1928) A steamboat captain receives a telegram informing him that his son who he has not seen for many years will be coming to visit. Eagerly expecting a strapping young lad who will help him compete with his arch-rival, he is disappointed with the effete progeny that instead shows up. Best remembered for its climactic cyclone sequence in which Keaton performs a number of death-defying stunts whilst an entire town is destroyed around him, Steamboat Bill, Jr. was Buster Keaton's last independent silent comedy and also one of his finest. BLU-RAY SPECIAL FEATURES: 3 x Blu-ray discs plus 60-page book all housed in a hardbound slipcase 1080p presentations of all three films from stunning new 4K restorations Audio commentary on Sherlock Jr. by film historian David Kalat Three new video interviews with film scholar Peter Kramer discussing Sherlock Jr., The General and Steamboat Bill, Jr Buster Keaton: The Genius Destroyed by Hollywood (52 mins) - A new documentary on Keaton and his struggles working within the Hollywood studio system Buster Keaton on Wagon Train (58 mins) an audio recording of a then 63 year old Buster Keaton in conversation with television writer Bill Cox Sherlock Jr. Original music by Timothy Brock Sherlock Jr. Tour of Filming Locations featurette Sherlock Jr. Movie Magic & Mysteries featurette The General - Original score composed and conducted by Carl Davis The General Tour of Filming Locations featurette The General Video Tour featurette The General Home Movie Footage The General Introduction by Orson Welles The General Introduction by Gloria Swanson Steamboat Bill, Jr. - Original score composed and conducted by Carl Davis Steamboat Bill, Jr. A video essay on the making of the film PLUS: A 60-PAGE BOOK featuring a new essay by Philip Kemp; notes on each film; archival writings; Keaton Family Scrapbook, a selection of Keaton family photographs generously supplied by friends of the Keaton family; and a stunning array of archival imagery

The 4 Marx Brothers At Paramount 1929 - 1933 | Blu Ray | (26/06/2017)
from £29.99 | Saving you £N/A (N/A%) | RRP
The Marx Brothers Chico, Groucho, Harpo and Zeppo are one of the cornerstones of American comedy. Starting out in vaudeville, they conquered Broadway and the big screen in their own inimitable style, at once innovative, irreverent, anarchic, physical, musical, ludicrous and hilarious. With the advent of the ?talkies', the Brothers signed to Paramount Pictures and brought their stage act to cinema audience. They made five films in five years, all of which are collected here: The Cocoanuts (1929), Animal Crackers (1930), Monkey Business (1931), Horse Feathers (1932) and one of the greatest comedies of all time, Duck Soup (1933). The Paramount era represents the Marx Brothers at their absolute finest, retaining all of the energy and controlled chaos of their stage shows. Plots are unimportant it's the gags, set-pieces and one-liners that matter: Why a duck?, Hello, I Must Be Going, Hooray for Captain Spaulding, That's the bunk!, Horse Feathers' Swordfish scene and classic mirror sequence in Duck Soup. LIMITED EDITION CONTENTS: High Definition Blu-ray (1080p) presentations of all five features, transferred from original film elements by Universal Original 1.0 mono audio Optional English subtitles for the deaf and hard-of-hearing Commentary on The Cocoanuts by film scholar Anthony Slide Commentary on Animal Crackers by film historian Jeffrey Vance Commentary on Monkey Business by Marx Brothers historian Robert S Bader and Bill Marx, son of Harpo Marx Commentary on Horse Feathers by film critic FX Feeney Commentary on Duck Soup by Bader and film critic Leonard Maltin The Marx Brothers: Hollywood's Kings of Chaos, a feature-length documentary containing interviews with Leonard Maltin, Dick Cavett and others Three excerpts from NBC's The Today Show featuring interviews with Harpo Marx, Groucho Marx and Bill Marx MORE TO BE ANNOUNCED!

Being There | DVD | (10/02/2003)
from £19.99 | Saving you £-7.99 (-57.10%) | RRP
Hal Ashby's much-praised Being There stars Peter Sellers in what was perhaps his finest comic performance. Chance the gardener has spent his entire life in an old man's house and has no idea of the world outside except for what television has given him. Sellers manages to make his innocence touching and oddly impressive rather than an offensive exploitation of disability. Jerzy Kozinski's screenplay neither entirely endorses nor discounts the twin possibilities that Chance's simplicity and closeness to the natural world give him access to real wisdom, or that he is simply a blank on whom people project what they want to see and hear. What is clear is that he gives his dying friend Ben (Jack Warden) peace of mind and consoles Ben's wife (Shirley Maclaine). Whether he's being groomed for the Presidency or appearing to walk on water, he always does something right, and the same is true for Sellers' minimalist performance. On the DVD: Being There is presented in a widescreen visual aspect of 1.85:1 and has 1.0 Dolby Digital mono sound; it comes with the original theatrical trailer, information about the stars and director and a list of the film's awards. --Roz Kaveny
The Hangover Trilogy - Limited Edition Steelbook | Blu Ray | (02/12/2013)
from £22.12 | Saving you £10.87 (32.90%) | RRP
The HangoverFrom the director of Old School comes a comedy about a bachelor party gone horribly wrong. Two days before his wedding Doug (Justin Bartha) and his three friends (Bradley Cooper Ed Helms and Zach Galifiankis) drive to Las Vegas for a blow-out night they'll never forget. But when the three groomsmen wake up the next morning with pounding headaches they can't remember a thing. Their hotel suite is beyond trashed and the groom is nowhere to be found. With no clue of what happened and little time to spare the trio attempt to retrace their bad decisions from the night before in order to figure out where things went wrong and hopefully get Doug back to Los Angeles in time for his wedding. However the more they begin to uncover the more they realise just how much trouble they&rsquo;re really in. The Hangover: Part IIThe Hangover: Part II is director Todd Phillips' follow-up to 2009's smash hit The Hangover which became the highest-grossing R-rated comedy of all-time and also won the Golden Globe for Best Film - Comedy or Musical. Reprising their roles from The Hangover Bradley Cooper Ed Helms Zach Galifianakis and Justin Bartha star in the film. Jeffrey Tambor Ken Jeong and Mike Tyson also rejoin the cast. In The Hangover Part II Phil (Bradley Cooper) Stu (Ed Helms) Alan (Zach Galifianakis) and Doug (Justin Bartha) travel to exotic Thailand for Stu&rsquo;s wedding. After the unforgettable bachelor party in Las Vegas Stu is taking no chances and has opted for a safe subdued pre-wedding brunch. However things don't always go as planned. What happens in Vegas may stay in Vegas but what happens in Bangkok can't even be imagined. The Hangover: Part IIIIt's been two years. Phil (Bradley Cooper) Stu (Ed Helms) and Doug (Justin Bartha) are happily living uneventful lives at home. Tattoos have been lasered off files purged. The last they heard from disaster-magnet Leslie Chow (Ken Jeong) he'd been tossed into a Thai prison and with him out of the way the guys have very nearly recovered from their nights prowling the seamy side of Las Vegas in a roofie'd haze and being kidnapped shot at and chased by drug-dealing mobsters in Bangkok. The only member of the Wolfpack who's not content is Alan (Zach Galifianakis). Still lacking a sense of purpose the group's black sheep has ditched his meds and given into his natural impulses in a big way-which for Alan means no boundaries no filters and no judgment-until a personal crisis forces him to finally seek the help he needs. And who better than his three best friends to make sure he takes the first step. This time there's no bachelor party. No wedding. What could possibly go wrong? But when the Wolfpack hits the road all bets are off. The Hangover Part III is the epic conclusion to an incomparable odyssey of mayhem and bad decisions in which the guys must finish what they started by going back to where it all began: Las Vegas. One way or another...it all ends here.

The Old Mother Riley Collection | DVD | (20/11/2015)
from £21.25 | Saving you £8.74 (29.10%) | RRP
Bridget's Night Out (1936) This was the first appearance of Lucan and McShane on film. Arthur wrote the sketch shortly before the couple's appearance at the Royal Command Performance in May 1934; it was filmed by Butchers late in 1935 and released in 1936. Old Mother Riley(1937) Previously Lost Film. The first of a series of fifteen of the most successful comedies in the history of British film. Old Mother Riley In Paris (1938) Con West's second script for Butcher's Films, produced and directed this time with far greater assurance, by Oswald Mitchell. Filming took place far from Paris, at Nettlefold Studios, Walton-on-Thames, and on location at Gatwick airport. Old Mother Riley MP (1939) "Early in 1939 the Lucans made their third and last Riley film for Butcher's, Old Mother Riley MP. The film was released in August and was a huge box-office success, with Mother Riley taking the Mother Of Parliaments"" by storm." Old Mother Riley Headmistress (1950) "Old Mother Riley Headmistress, was produced for Grand National Pictures by Harry Reynolds. John Harlow directed with John Gilling, and old faithful Con West was back on the script. Here, Mother Riley makes the transition from washerwoman to headmistress with the usual hilarious results. Old Mother Riley's Jungle Treasure (1951) The last film in which Lucan and McShane appeared together or rather appeared to" appear" together because in reality their interminable quarrels had by this time become so intolerable that George Minter decided to film all their scenes separately and edit them later, a fact that accounts for the rather strange atmosphere in many scenes in which Mother and Kitty seem to be talking not to each other but to someone just over each other's shoulder. Old Mother Riley's New Venture (1949) By 1949 it seemed clear that the series of films by music hall to cinema crossover comedians had run its course. Made by Harry Reynolds Productions and the Renown Pictures Corporation, directed by John Harlow with John Gilling. Mother Riley Meets The Vampire (1952) Mother Riley was scheduled to meet a Vampire to be played by Bela Lugosi. As Richard Anthony Baker wickedly put it, "One horrific figure was replaced by another."

The Player | DVD | (30/04/2001)
from £23.98 | Saving you £-17.00 (-130.90%) | RRP
Robert Altman's a biting satire on the Hollywood industry, The Player, has always been acknowledged by insiders as too close to the truth for comfort. Opening with a self-referential nine-minute tracking shot around the studio lot where producer Griffin Mill (Tim Robbins) works, the story's intrigue begins with the first of several postcard death threats from a writer he's angered. After accidentally killing the wrong man, Mill moves from one star-studded lunch table to another. All the while he's hounded by the real writer and an obsession with "Ice Queen" artist June Gudmundsdotter (Greta Scacchi) who'd been the deceased's girlfriend. Altman's tradition of improvised dialogue makes each of the dozens of cameos a fascinating treat for movie fans. Blink and you'll miss Angelica Houston, John Cusack, Rod Steiger, or Bruce Willis and Julia Roberts who appear in the hilarious movie-within-a-movie finale. There's an endless list of terrific support from the likes of dry-witted Fred Ward, fly-swatting Lyle Lovett, or tampon-twirling Whoopi Goldberg. Aside from the star-spotting and a script that crackles with sharp dialogue, this also warrants acknowledgement for being the movie to set off an explosion of independent film in the Nineties. On the DVD: there's a commentary track (which leaves the film's soundtrack playing a little too loud) from director Altman who talks at length about the poor state of today's industry, and writer Michael Tolkin who contributes about ten minutes of veiled displeasure about the treatment of a writer's work. There are five grainy deleted scenes featuring lost cameos from Tim Curry, Jeff Daniels, and Patrick Swayze. Then in a 16-minute featurette a lot of the deleted footage is repeated around an interview with Altman. A trailer rounds out the package. --Paul Tonks

Porterhouse Blue | DVD | (15/07/2002)
from £21.98 | Saving you £-11.99 (-120.00%) | RRP
Based on Tom Sharpe’s satirical novel and set in a fictional, all-male Cambridge College, 1987’s Porterhouse Blue is a crusty delight. Ian Richardson stars as the austere moderniser who takes over as master of Porterhouse with a view to bringing in radical changes; David Jason is Skullion, head porter for 45 years and a bulldog-style traditionalist.Porterhouse Blue is a wonderfully grotesque and not inaccurate depiction of an Oxbridge college that has set itself resolutely and decadently against the modern world. Crammed with hoggish, port-swilling dons who are more concerned that the college stay "head of the river" than with academic achievement, the highlight of Porterhouse’s year is the Founder’s Feast, in which students and tutors gorge debauchedly on roast swan stuffed with widgeon, to the horror of the new vegetarian master. Jason’s Skullion looks on approvingly: he’s a stickler for Porterhouse’s inverted values, disapproving, for instance, of student Zipser (John Sessions), the only fellow at the college actually there to work. When the master eventually fires Skullion, the forces of traditionalism gather in sympathy and attempt their revenge.Unfolding over 190 leisurely minutes, Porterhouse Blue is an elegantly turned comedy in which practically every morsel of dialogue is to be savoured for its delicious tang. Jason and Richardson are reliably excellent in what is an overall exhibition of British TV thespianism at its finest. --David Stubbs
