The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus | Blu Ray | (29/03/2010)
from £7.87 | Saving you £17.12 (68.50%) | RRP
The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus tells the story of the titular Doctor and his travelling 'Imaginarium' where audience members get the chance to choose between light and joy or darkness and gloom. Doctor parnassus long ago made a bet with the devil trading his immortality for youth on the grounds that when his first born reached its 16th year he or she would become the property of the devil. Dr Parnassus' daughter Valentina is now approaching her 16th birthday and he is desperate to protect her from the imminant handover. The devil arrives but as a betting man makes another wager. Now in order to win Valentina the victor must be the first to seduce five souls. Joined by many wild and eccentric characters in his journey Dr Parnassus promises his daughter's hand in marriage to the man that helps him win. This new Terry Gilliam flick will be notable for being the last film Heath Ledger worked on his role in the film being unfinished before his untimely death. As the story is centered on a 1 000 year old magician with a magic mirror that serves as a portal the film was saved by Johnny Depp Jude Law and Colin Farrell all playing versions of the same character portrayed by Ledger changing as they pass through the mirror.
Star Trek XI | Blu Ray | (16/11/2009)
from £9.97 | Saving you £10.01 (33.40%) | RRP
Reinventing Star Trek was always going to be controversial but Lost's J.J. Abrams has pulled it off with style creating a bold vision that is faithful without being slavish. The young cast step boldly into iconic roles and the action is bigger and more epic than ever before! Director J.J. Abrams (Alias) re-teams with his MI: III screenwriters Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci to bring a new vision of the greatest space adventure of all time. Play.com Review When Paramount announced that J.J. Abrams and Transformers Revenge Of The Fallen writers Robert Orci and Alex Kurtzman would tackle Star Trek few fans doubted that the creator of Lost would deliver but even the most optimistic fan could be forgiven for not expecting it to be this good! We'll get straight to the point: this is the best Enterprise adventure since Wrath Of Khan - and plenty would argue that it's even better. So what's so good about the latest adventure? Let us boldly tell you... Influenced by Spock's appearance in Star Trek: The Next Generations: Season 5's Unification and Star Trek: The Original Series: Season 1's Balance Of Terror where Kirk becomes the first human to encounter a Romulan Abrams' movie is deeply rooted in the lore of the series but some bold decisions reinvigorate the franchise. A sort of re-boot re-imagining and prequel all in one this origins story toys with the space-time continuum effectively creating a parallel universe in which the characters can exist as new versions of their former incarnations freeing the story from the constraints of past movies and TV shows. Depicting the characters in their formative years the cast of relative newcomers are a resounding success. Playing Kirk like a cross between William Shatner's original Tom Cruise's Maverick and Harrison Ford's Han Solo Chris Pine (Smokin' Aces) is charming and hilarious but he's always building to become the iconic hero. Heroes star Zachary Quinto successfully channels Leonard Nimoy (who also appears) as Spock exploring the character's dual heritage. Meanwhile Zoe Saldana captures the strength and sexuality of Nichelle Nichols' original Uhura easily capable of holding her own against the egos onboard the Enterprise. Her romantic leanings might surprise a few old Trek fans too. Elsewhere Karl Urban brilliantly plays Bones Simon Pegg amuses as Scottie Anton Yelchin (Terminator Salvation) adds humour as Chekov John Cho appears as Sulu; and that's not forgetting Eric Bana (Black Hawk Down) as Romulan baddie Nero. The actors are fantastic but it's Abrams' handling of the spectacle that made this movie the highest grossing Star Trek. Never before have we seen such intense action and such gripping set pieces; the opening is one of the most immediate impacting scenes in a blockbuster for many years. Overall fans will love the references and creative decisions whilst newcomers will enjoy the intense action-packed spectacle and accessibility of a world that might have previously seemed inaccessible such is the depth and scale of the Star Trek legacy. Did we mention two sequels are on the way? Wish we could warp speed!

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.

Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen (3-Disc) with Bonus Digital Copy | Blu Ray | (30/11/2009)
from £3.99 | Saving you £23.60 (78.70%) | RRP
Pure. Popcorn. Entertainment. That's an exact classification of director Michael Bay's Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. The action is nonstop, with battles and explosions from start to finish. The camera (without any subtlety) exploits Megan Fox's hotness to the max. As if she weren't enough, a new sex kitten (Isabel Lucas) is thrown into the equation. Shia LaBeouf is as charismatic as ever, and fills the starring role with ease. And then there's the humour. Sam's parents (Kevin Dunn and Julie White)provided some semi-raunchy laugh-out-loud moments in the first movie, but now they take it to the next level. Sometimes it seems like they are trying a little too hard, but it is still hilarious. As far as the ?plot? goes, the writers didn't waste much time--it's really just a context for the giant-robot death matches and dramatic slow-mo sequences. The movie kicks off two years later where the Autobots have formed an alliance with the U.S. government, creating an elite team led by Major Lennox (Josh Duhamel), in an effort to snuff out any remaining Decepticons that show up. The bad guys keep coming, and it turns out that a much more menacing force than Megatron is out there--and it is looking for something on Earth that is tied to the very origin of the Transformers race. Fans of the franchise will be delighted by the addition of many new robot characters (there are well over 40 in the sequel, versus only 13 in the first). The second Transformers has shaped up to be one of the worst reviewed and most successful movies of all time. This strange pairing is really just an indication that this movie has one purpose: to entertain. The creators didn't want to waste time bogging down the action and drama with substance--which was arguably a good decision. --Jordan Thompson
