Three Films by Jia Zhangke | Blu Ray | (29/01/2018)
from £32.99 | Saving you £N/A (N/A%) | RRP
Three Films By Jia Zhangke Jia Zhangke has become widely regarded as one of world cinema's most accomplished filmmakers and a leading figure of the Sixth Generation movement of Chinese cinema. This collection presents three of Jia's most compelling works together on DVD and Bluray. In 24 City (2008) Jia skilfully combines documentary and fiction film as he charts the transformation of a military hardware factory into a complex of luxury flats, and the social impact this has. The Cannes prize-winner A Touch of Sin (2013) focuses on four people living across China who are driven to acts of violence. An angry miner, enraged by corruption in his village; a migrant who discovers the infinite possibilities of owning a firearm; a receptionist at a sauna who is pushed to the limit by a client, and a young factory worker drifting through the foreign-owned factories and nightclubs of the south. Jia's eighth feature film, Mountains May Depart (2015) is an intimate and moving drama spanning several decades which charts the impact of China's capitalist experiment on the lives of one family.

From the scheming south and the savage eastern lands to the frozen north and the ancient Wall that protects the realm from the darkness beyond powerful families are engaged in a deadly cat-and-mouse game for control of the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros. As betrayal lust intrigue and supernatural forces shake the four corners of the Kingdoms their bloody struggle for the Iron Throne will have unforeseen and far-reaching consequences. Winter is coming. Let the Game of Thrones begin. Season 2The Battle continues in Westeros with feuding families and power hungry rulers. Five Kings vie for a single all-powerful throne in the all-new season of Game of Thrones - an epic story of duplicity and treachery nobility and honour conquest and triumph. Season 2 plays out against the backdrop of a fast-approaching winter. In King's Landing the coveted Iron Throne is occupied by cruel young Joffrey counseled by his conniving mother Cersei and uncle Tyrion. But the Lannister hold on the Throne is under assault on many fronts. There's Robb Stark son of the slain Lord of Winterfell Ned Stark; Daenerys Targaryen who looks to shore up her depleted power through three newborn dragons; Stannis Baratheon eldest brother of the late King Robert; and Stannis' brother Renly who has maintained his own claim since fleeing King's Landing. In the meantime a new leader is rising among the wildlings North of the Wall adding new perils for Jon Snow and the Night's Watch. With tensions and treaties animosity and alliances Season 2 of Game of Thrones promises to be a thrilling journey through a riveting unforgettable landscape. Season 3In Season 3 family and loyalty will be the overarching themes and many critical plot points from the first two seasons will come to a violent head with several major characters meeting cruel fates.

Robb Stark King of the North will face a major calamity in his efforts to build on his victories over the Lannisters in Season 2 while further north Mance Rayder (new character played by Ciar&aacute;n Hinds) and his huge army of wildlings continue their inexorable march south to scale the Wall.

Rambo Trilogy (Three Disc Box Set) | DVD | (10/10/2005)
from £34.95 | Saving you £5.04 (12.60%) | RRP
Sylvester Stallone never courted as much controversy as he did with the screen violence of the Rambo trilogy. From 1982 to 1988, they kept his name above Schwarzenegger's in the muscle hero league, with "Rambo" becoming a descriptive phrase in the language to describe gung-ho aggression (in Japanese, "rambo" means "violence"). The strangest part of the character's success is that originally he had none. Both David Morrell's novel and the original incarnation of First Blood had the Vietnam vet committing suicide after his rampage through small town America. The un-Hollywood ending was changed when Stallone and the producers recognised here was a character with possibilities. First Blood: Part II was co-written by James (Titanic) Cameron, a man who has always recognised box office possibilities. Stallone took a very relevant (to 1985) issue of surviving POWs and created an alternative end to the Vietnam War. This was achieved courtesy of the Cold War animosity that still existed towards the Russians, embodied in a suitably vile cameo from Steven Berkoff. A little love interest helped ground the movie and prevent it from completely turning into a video game, as did the best of Jerry Goldsmith's stirring scores for the trilogy. After saving himself and then his Country, Rambo III was simply about saving his friend Richard Crenna. The code of honour was by this point watered down into a song lyric, "He Ain't Heavy, He's My Brother". Nevertheless the final instalment continues to say something about the indomitable American spirit that will not accept defeat lightly. Patriotism may never have been portrayed quite so bloodily before Rambo's arrival, but at least a generation learned to question attitudes to war veterans, as well as the benefits of carrying a compass in your hunting knife. On the DVD: The Rambo trilogy on disc brings together all three movies in crisp 2.35:1 widescreen transfers. Sadly the extras are a little thin considering how much more was on the old Laser Discs. The first film has but a trailer; the third has a few minutes of behind the scenes material; the second has quite a few mini-documentaries that could really have done with being edited together, and having repeated interviews cut out. But there's still fun to be had hearing how deep and meaningful the movies were in conception.--Paul Tonks
Female Prisoner Scorpion: The Complete Collection | Blu Ray | (08/08/2016)
from £47.99 | Saving you £N/A (N/A%) | RRP
Starring the iconic and beautiful Meiko Kaji (Lady Snowblood, Stray Cat Rock) in a role that came to define her career, the four-film Female Prisoner Scorpion series charts the vengeance of Nami Matsushima, who assumes the mantle of Scorpion, becoming an avatar of vengeance and survival, and an unlikely symbol of female resistance in a male-dominated world. Female Prisoner #701: Scorpion introduces Nami, a gullible young woman unjustly imprisoned, who must find a way to escape in order to exact revenge upon the man who betrayed her. The visually avant-garde Female Prisoner Scorpion: Jailhouse 41 sees director Shunya Ito and star Meiko Kaji re-unite as Nami and six other female convicts escape prison once more. The Gothic horror-inspired Beast Stable finds Nami branded public enemy #1 and on the run. She soon finds refuge with a sympathetic prostitute, but runs afoul of a local gang. The final film in the series, #701²s Grudge Song (from director Yasuharu Hasebe, Retaliation, Massacre Gun), shows a gentler side of Nami as she falls in with Kudo, an ex-radical suffering from physical and psychological trauma caused by police torture. Spiritual kin to Ms. 45, Coffy and The Bride Wore Black, the Female Prisoner Scorpion is the pinnacle of early 1970s exploitation cinema from Japanese grindhouse studio Toei, and one of the greatest female revenge sagas ever told.
