Django Unchained | Blu Ray | (20/05/2014)
from £12.08 | Saving you £N/A (N/A%) | RRP
From the moment Jamie Foxx throws off a filthy, tattered blanket to reveal a richly muscled back crisscrossed with long scars, it's obvious that Django Unchained will be both true to its exploitation roots but also clear-eyed about the misery that's being exploited. Django (Foxx), a slave set free in the years before the Civil War, joins with a German dentist-turned-bounty hunter (the marvelous Christoph Waltz, Inglourious Basterds), who has promised to help Django rescue his wife (Kerry Washington), who's still enslaved to a gleeful and grandiose plantation owner (Leonardo DiCaprio, plainly relishing the opportunity to play an out-and-out villain). What follows is a wild and woolly ride, crammed with all the pleasures one expects from a revenge fantasy written and directed by Quentin Tarantino. Plot-wise, some things happen a little too easily (for example, Django instantly becomes a master gunslinger), but the moral perspective is not glib. For all its lurid violence and jazzy dialogue, this is a still-rare movie that paints slavery for what it was: a brutal, dehumanizing practice that allowed a privileged few to profit from the suffering of many, a practice guaranteed by the gun and the whip. Think of it as the antidote to Gone with the Wind. Tarantino is more heartfelt in Django Unchained than in any of his previous movies--without sacrificing any of the pell-mell action, tension, and delicious language that made Reservoir Dogs, Kill Bill, and Pulp Fiction so very enjoyable. --Bret Fetzer

from £N/A | Saving you £N/A (N/A%) | RRP
John Wayne hams it up as a one-eyed, broken-down marshal in this 1969 adaptation of Charles Portis's bestselling novel. Kim Darby plays the formal-speaking adolescent who goes to Wayne for help tracking down her father's killer, and singer Glen Campbell straps on his guns to join the quest. Directed by old lion Henry Hathaway (Rawhide), True Grit is largely a showcase for Wayne (who finally won an Oscar), but it is also a decent Western with a particularly stirring final act. --Tom Keogh

Their contrasting tales will be tightly interwoven into one engaging and entertaining narrative playing out over the course of an extraordinary day - a day packed with dramatic highs and lows. Our heroes may be small but they're also deadly and able to pack a punch well above their weight. The challenges that each creature faces almost defy belief. A sudden rainstorm releases raging torrents that can wash away the grasshopper mouse's home in seconds; to a bug a falling acorn is as catastrophic as a crashing meteorite! This is a world where dirt stings like gravel and a sudden gust of wind feels like a tornado. Time has a whole different meaning too in these Hidden Kingdoms. Here a minute can play out like an hour and every second counts. It's a pressure cooker environment where creatures live their lives in fast forward - it's drama on a different scale! Of course our heroes don't live in isolation they share the Hidden Kingdom with a rich and colourful supporting cast of mini life forms that will astound and delight audiences with their beauty and bizarre natural behaviour. It's 'Mini meets Mighty' as our tiny heroes face huge adversity from large animals that live in a dimension beyond their miniature world yet unknowingly have a huge influence upon it; threatening our heroes' lives as they go about their own. We will be 'turning up the dials' in all senses - amplifying these magical hidden realms through amazing images and specialist sound design to create heightened realities. Unusual filming angles and unexpected perspectives will allow us to enter small corners of these worlds that we've never seen before.
