District 9 | Blu Ray | (28/12/2009)
from £3.42 | Saving you £21.57 (86.30%) | RRP
Producer Peter Jackson ('Lord Of The Rings') presents this action-packed instant sci-fi classic. Rich with social and political themes District 9 is also a spectacular effects-driven event picture offering clear evidence that blockbuster movies can have a brain to go along with the brawn! 1982 Johannesburg South Africa: A large alien spaceship hovers above the city carrying hundreds of thousands of ailing extraterrestrial creatures that the population of the 'Joburg' would soon come to unaffectionately refer to as 'Prawns'. Twenty-eight years later and tensions are mounting. The 'Prawns' live in a militarized ghetto zone called District 9 where they are confined in squalor. Munitions company Multi-National United is contracted to remove the extraterrestrial element with force to a distant compound. Unexpectedly bureaucrat Wikus van der Merwe supervises the military charge. However when Wikus discovers an unknown substance and accidentally ingests it he soon becomes the most hunted man in Johannesburg. Alone and stripped of his former life Wikus' only allies are the creatures he once sought to banish. Play.com Review Taking elements from Close Encounters Of The Third Kind David Croneburg's The Fly and cult eighties hit Alien Nation District 9 is an expansion of director Neill Blomkamp's 2005 short film Alive In Joburg. Filmed in a gritty handheld documentary style the movie thrusts viewers right into the heat of the action capturing the full force of mounting tensions between the otherworldly immigrants and the bitter locals. Throw in some scathing social satire remarkable - and sometimes grotesque - special effects (on a comparatively low budget) and some Hollywood-beating action scenes and you've got a movie that ticks all the boxes. As for the cast Sharlto Copley - soon to be seen as Captain 'Howling Mad' Murdock in the A-Team Movie - is a revelation as Wikus; mixing pathos naivet'' and desperation to remarkable effect. And that's not forgetting the alien creatures themselves: veering from super strong insatiable scavengers to thoughtful and intelligent freedom fighters these CGI creations hold up remarkably well and 'Christopher' one of Wikus' only allies is a wholly sympathetic and likeable character in stark contrast to the majority of the nefarious individuals who prowl the slums in search of Wikus. District 9 comes at a time when juggernauts such as Avatar Terminator Salvation Star Trek and Transformers: Revenge Of The Fallen are on the scene and it easily holds its own against the competition. More cerebral and exciting than the average sci-fi action flick we urge you to take a trip to District 9 and experience one of the most exciting and original movies of the decade.

Tron Legacy | Blu Ray | (19/11/2012)
from £9.99 | Saving you £20.00 (66.70%) | RRP
The luminescent lines and shimmering surfaces of Tron: Legacy will tantalise anyone who's lusted after the latest smartphone. The long-ago disappearance of his computer-genius father has left Sam Flynn (Garrett Hedlund, Four Brothers) with existential ennui and a lot of money. When he discovers his father's secret workshop, he gets sucked into a computerised realm ruled by a megalomaniac computer program named Clu--who just happens to be his father's virtual doppelganger. To find his real father (Jeff Bridges, reprising his role from the original Tron, with a bit of his role from The Big Lebowski thrown in for kicks), Sam has to fight in gladiatorial games, drive in digital demolition derbies, and be stripped and dressed by slinky pneumatic babes. For all the techno-babble and quasi-philosophy the characters spout, this is a movie without an idea in its shiny head. It would be pointless to describe the many sillinesses because Tron: Legacy isn't actually trying to be smart; it's trying to look cool. It succeeds. Olivia Wilde (House) looks like the coolest action figure ever (if the entire movie could be nothing but the shot of her lounging on a futuristic sofa, it would be a masterpiece of avant-garde gizmo-fetishism). The facemasks are cool, the glowing skintight outfits are cool, the light-cycles are really, really cool--and let's be honest, it's all about the light-cycles. That's what the audience for Tron wants, and that's what Tron: Legacy delivers. --Bret Fetzer
Terminator Salvation | Blu Ray | (23/11/2009)
from £3.69 | Saving you £21.30 (85.20%) | RRP
Terminator is back! Set in a post-apocalyptic 2018 this fourth instalment of the saga stars Christian Bale as John Connor humanity's last hope in the war against the machines. From visionary director McG this is one adrenaline-pumping thrill ride that no sci-fi fan should be without! The End Begins Now The year is 2018. Judgment Day has come and gone. At the behest of Skynet an army of Terminators roams the wastelands killing or collecting humans. The only hope for the survival of humanity is Resistance fighter John Connor: a man whose destiny has always been intertwined with the fate of human existence. As the future of the world teeters on the brink of the future John has been warned about his whole life something totally new shakes his belief that mankind stands a chance against the machines: the appearance of Marcus Wright (Sam Worthington) a man from the past whose last memory is of being on death row before awakening in this post-apocalyptic nightmare. In the face of an ever-adapting Skynet John must decide whether Marcus can be trusted as he prepares to face the enemy head-on. Play.com Review Director McG's Terminator Salvation sees Hollywood superstar Christian Bale (The Dark Knight) step into the post-apocalyptic shoes of John Connor. Terminator Salvation breathes new life into the series welcoming Tim Burton's favourite composer Danny Elfman (Batman) Bryce Dallas Howard (Spider-Man 3) as Kate Connor - replacing Terminator 3: Rise Of The Machines' Claire Danes - and hotly-tipped Australian newcomer Sam Worthington (Avatar) in the role of Marcus Wright. As with the prequels the film features plenty of terrifying additions to Skynet's arsenal including the Harvester Mototerminators and T-600s but it's the chance to see the first film set after Judgement Day that really appeals. Terminator Salvation is a rollicking chase movie with spectacular action - the escape from the giant robot Harvester is a particular highlight. Meanwhile the dilapidated deserts of California and the LA-based Skynet - a dark lair of pipes pumps gun turrets and factories - provide a fascinating backdrop for the future war. With strong support from Moon Bloodgood and Anton Yelchin - channelling Michael Biehn as Kyle Reese - Christian Bale lends John Connor A-list authority whilst being totally believable in the action scenes - especially when he meets an old foe towards the end of the movie (you'll have to watch to find out!). However the real star of the show is Sam Worthington as Marcus. Sporting the good looks and understated charisma of a classic matinee idol we cannot wait to see Worthington in Terminator and Terminator 2: Judgement Day director James Cameron's Avatar. Ultimately though it's the characters that make Terminator Salvation standout from the slew of event movies remaining true to the spirit of the series - characters you actually care about.

Cocoon (1985) (30th Anniversary Special Edition) (Blu-ray) | Blu Ray | (18/07/2016)
from £7.69 | Saving you £10.30 (57.30%) | RRP
In 1985 Cocoon was a significant trend-bucker amongst summer blockbusters. Whereas other genre efforts were devised to lure a teenage audience into FX extravaganzas, this looked like one for their grandparents. Except that it turned out to be a gentle, affecting tale for all ages. Adapted from David Saperstein's novel, director Ron Howard took great delight in focusing on family relationships and the encroachment of old age (themes that reappeared in nearly all his work from here on). The plot is rather surreal in summary: a group of Florida OAPs befriend aliens in next-door's swimming pool and are rejuvenated to youthful well-being. It's in the FX and characterisations that the story comes alive. Both were acknowledged with Academy Awards; with Don Ameche's supporting role deserving praise for more than just the moment when he does some bodypopping on the dance floor. Wilford Brimley is the real star, a bluff old codger wanting to do right by everyone. Steve Guttenberg provides comic support and allows for a little non-wrinkly nudity with foxy space gal Kitty (Tahnee Welch). ILM's visuals remain polished and inspired, but never allowing us to lose sight of the characters basking in their dazzle. --Paul Tonks
Ghosts of Mars | Blu Ray | (30/01/2017)
from £15.59 | Saving you £N/A (N/A%) | RRP
John Carpenter's Ghosts of Mars attempts a productive combination of SF elements (a largely terraformed Mars with its long-lost civilisation) and horror (mass possession that turns the victims into rampaging, self-mutilating monsters that kill and burn). A police-force detachment turn up in a mining community to collect a bandit, whose last heist was uncharacteristically violent, and soon find themselves under siege from rampaging hordes who used to be solid citizens. This is a fairly simple set of variations on stock Carpenter elements--a hybrid between Assault on Precinct 13 and In the Mouth of Madness. However, there is some powerful chemistry between Nastasha Henstridge's icy, drug-abusing police lieutenant and Ice Cube's bandit, Desolation Williams, made stronger by the lack of sexual tension. Other characters, such as Pam Grier's tough commander and Clea Duvall's nervous rookie, are more or less defined by plot functions; the mobs never become more than faceless, or facially distorted, anonymous menaces. This is one for die-hard Carpenter fans only. On the DVD: Ghosts of Mars on disc comes with Dolby Digital sound and its original widescreen ratio of 2.35:1. A sparky commentary by Carpenter and Henstridge is included, which is informative, but otherwise there are uninspiring documentaries on the musical score, the special effects and the difficulties of shooting at night in the Mexican desert, as well as filmographies and the theatrical trailer. --Roz Kaveney

Independence Day: Theatrical And Extended Cut | Blu Ray | (30/05/2016)
from £16.50 | Saving you £N/A (N/A%) | RRP
If you?ve got your high definition television set up, and your Blu-ray player or Playstation 3 at the ready, then surely home cinema demo material rarely comes in better shape than Independence Day. The spectacular 1996 blockbuster stars Will Smith in the early part of his movie career and, of course, tells the tale of invaders from other worlds bringing mighty ships to the Earth. And particularly in the first half, Independence Day wrings so much tension and style from their arrival that few films have equalled it since. The sheer spectacle of set pieces such as the blowing up of the White House, or the massive battle in the skies, simply deserves to be seen and enjoyed in high definition. Independence Day, of course, does go a bit daft as it goes about wrapping up its simple-yet-compelling premise, but it?s really very hard not to forgive it. So ambitious were the effects at the time that they still stand up now, and as far as science fiction blockbusters go, this remains one of the finest in recent memory. Of course, high definition does it wonders. The film looks razor-sharp, and coupled with a punchy sound mix, Independence Day is quite superb demo material. That it?s also a fun blockbuster too is an added, and very welcome treat. --Jon Foster
