The Round Up | DVD | (17/03/2008)
from £10.39 | Saving you £2.60 (20.00%) | RRP
The Round Up takes place within a detention camp in the remote Hungarian countryside after the collapse of the 1848 revolution against Austrian domination. A formal variation on the main patterns of ritual power Jansco deliberately side-steps revolutionary heroics and focuses on the persecutions and de-humanizations which always accompany conflict. Filmed in hungary's desolate sun scorched landscape Jansco's formidable technique - his austere formalism and stark cinematic vision - has produced a remarkable and terrifying picture of war and its cost.
Hancock | Blu Ray | (01/12/2008)
from £3.95 | Saving you £18.00 (72.00%) | RRP
Hancock turns the standard superhero movie inside-out. The titular character, played by Will Smith, can fly, has super strength and is invulnerable. But he's also a sloppy, arrogant alcoholic who causes millions of dollars in property damage whenever he bothers to fight crime. When he saves the life of a PR agent named Ray (Jason Bateman, Arrested Development), Ray decides to improve Hancock's image--starting by having Hancock surrender himself to the authorities and go to prison for his lawless behaviour. The idea is that once he's in prison, the crime rate will go up and people will start realising Hancock might be of value after all. This is only the first act of Hancock though--from there, the film takes several surprising turns that shouldn't be revealed. Hancock isn't a great movie, but it is an extremely entertaining one. The script, which holds together far better than most superhero movies, has a propulsive plot, good dialogue, some compassion for its characters, and even an actual idea or two. The spectacular action at least gestures towards obeying the laws of physics, which actually makes the special effects more vivid. The three leads (Smith, Bateman, and Charlize Theron as Ray's wife, Mary) deftly balance the movie's mixture of comedy, action, and drama. All in all, a smart subversive twist on a genre that all too often takes itself all too seriously. --Bret Fetzer
The Victors | DVD | (06/06/2011)
from £3.99 | Saving you £6.00 (60.10%) | RRP
Produced, written and directed by Oscar winning Carl Foreman (The Bridge On The River Kwai, The Guns of Navarone, High Noon), The Victors is one of the most important and powerful war movies ever. The Victors follows a squad of American GI's fighting their way across Occupied Europe from the Italian Campaign to post-war Berlin. Impressionistic, chaotic and raw, from the liberation of a death camp to the fate of a single American deserter, The Victors tells it story through a series of unforgettable scenes and images. At the same time, this outstanding film also vividly captures the effect of the war upon the civilians they meet., as the soldiers dall in and out of relationships with broken and damaged women along their bloody way...

from £11.69 | Saving you £4.30 (26.90%) | RRP

Stalingrad | DVD | (22/10/2001)
from £3.28 | Saving you £9.00 (69.30%) | RRP
It's tempting to call the harrowing Stalingrad a World War II version of All Quiet on the Western Front, since both films take the perspective of ordinary German soldiers at ground level. Stalingrad surveys the misery of the battle of Stalingrad, the winter siege that cost the lives of almost one and a half million people--Russian defenders and German invaders alike. Not unlike Spielberg's approach to Saving Private Ryan, German director Joseph Vilsmaier rarely steps outside the action to comment on the higher purpose of the war, assuming the audience is aware of the evil of the Nazi regime. Instead, we simply follow a group of soldiers as they endure a series of gut-wrenching episodes, events that have the tang of authenticity and horror. Vilsmaier has a taste for symbolism and surreal touches, which only add to the unsettling sense of insanity this movie conjures up so well. --Robert Horton
Gift Horse | DVD | (08/02/2010)
from £10.33 | Saving you £2.66 (20.50%) | RRP
TREVOR HOWARD and RICHARD ATTENBOROUGH star in this famous story of a Royal Navy destroyer and her officers and crew during the early years of the Second World War. H.M.S. Ballantrae is an ex-U.S. Navy destroyer - one of fifty lent by the Americans in 1940 to a desperate Royal Navy fighting to keep the Atlantic sea lanes open. The ship is old and desperately in need of a major refit, but is almost immediately pressed into service on escort duty. Her new captain, Lt. Commander Fraser (Trevor Howard), struggles to keep her operational, while dealing with problems arising from his own chequered past. The Crew are mostly new recruits, raw, inexperienced and unused to navy discipline. Somehow, Fraser must shape them into a formidable fighting unit as they run the lethal gauntlet of U-Boats and German bombers. Just as H.M.S. Ballantrae seems to have overcome her problems, she is selected to play a vital role in one of the most daring raids of the entire war - a mission from which the ship is intended never to return... With a fine supporting cast including Bernard Lee, Dora Bryan, Sid James, Sonny Tufts, Joan Rice and James Donald. GIFT HORSE offers an authentic and moving portrayal of life on board a Royal Navy ship during World War Two. It was made with the full cooperation of both the Admiralty and the St. Nazaire Society, and is broadly based on dramatic, real life events.
Auschwitz | DVD | (11/07/2011)
from £3.99 | Saving you £12.00 (75.00%) | RRP
Echoing the sentiments of Schindler's List Auschwitz is a hard-hitting but respectful war film which shows life as it really was at the death camp. Including documentary footage controversial German director Uwe Boll (Rampage Darfur) says 50% of the German population doesn't know anything about the Holocaust. When I realized that there were many people who deny the Holocaust or who had a distorted point of view about it I decided to make this movie and get straight to the point without any metaphors.
Apocalypse Now | Blu Ray | (13/06/2011)
from £18.50 | Saving you £8.90 (29.70%) | RRP
In the tradition of such obsessively driven directors as Erich von Stroheim and Werner Herzog, Francis Ford Coppola approached the production of Apocalypse Now as if it was his own epic mission into the heart of darkness. On location in the storm-ravaged Philippines, he quite literally went mad as the project threatened to devour him in a vortex of creative despair but from this insanity came one of the greatest films ever made. It began as a John Milius screenplay, transposing Joseph Conrad's classic story "Heart of Darkness" into the horrors of the Vietnam War, following a battle-weary Captain Willard (Martin Sheen) on a secret upriver mission to find and execute the renegade Colonel Kurtz(Marlon Brando), who has reverted to a state of murderous and mystical insanity. The journey is fraught with danger involving war-time action on epic and intimate scales. One measure of the film's awesome visceral impact is the number of sequences, images and lines of dialogue that have literally burned themselves into our cinematic consciousness, from the Wagnerian strike of helicopter gunships on a Vietnamese village to the brutal murder of stowaways and the unflinching fearlessness of the surfing warrior Lieutenant Colonel Kilgore (Robert Duvall), who speaks lovingly of "the smell of napalm in the morning." Like Herzog's Aguirre: The Wrath of God, this film is the product of genius cast into a pit of hell and emerging, phoenix-like, in triumph. Coppola's obsession (effectively detailed in the riveting documentary Hearts of Darkness, directed by Coppola's wife, Eleanor) informs every scene and every frame, and the result is a film for the ages. --Jeff Shannon
