  • Serenity (Blu-Ray) Serenity (Blu-Ray) | Blu Ray | (05/01/2009) from £7.00  |  Saving you £12.99 (65.00%)  |  RRP £19.99

    Can't stop the signal... Beloved television cult director Joss Whedon (Buffy The Vampire Slayer Angel) makes a spectacular first foray onto the big screen with Serenity the cinematic adaptation of his wildly popular but short-lived sci-fi series Firefly. A mix of space western comedy and drama Serenity follows captain Malcolm Mal Reynolds (Nathan Fillion) and his ragtag crew as they trade their way around the edges of civilized society. Of particular interest are two passengers they take on Simon and River Tam (Sean Maher and Summer Glau) a brother and his telepathic sister on the run from the corrupt governing Alliance. As notorious former members of the anti-Alliance opposition Mal and his crew make it difficult for Simon and River to stay hidden. Everything goes completely awry when a government assassin is sent to retrieve River. As Mal is forced to choose between his close-knit crew and the brother and sister newcomers it becomes apparent that River harbors both a dangerous secret and astounding fighting powers and Mal decides that discovering the truth about what she knows might just be worth his time. Many of the film's action sequences revolve around Summer Glau's martial arts skills in her portrayal of River. Glau prepared for her role with Hong Kong stuntwoman Ming Lu as well as stunt coordinators Chad Stahelski and Hiro Koda and as a result performed nearly all the stuntwork herself. In addition to the stellar stunts realistic graphics and an often haunting score the film's actors display a rare chemistry that brings viewers both into their lives and into a possible version of humanity's future.

  • District 9 [Blu-ray] [2009] District 9 | Blu Ray | (28/12/2009) from £4.69  |  Saving you £20.30 (81.20%)  |  RRP £24.99

    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.

  • Mad Max [1979] Mad Max | DVD | (01/06/2006) from £2.74  |  Saving you £9.90 (70.80%)  |  RRP £13.99

    The story of Mel Gibson's stately anti-hero begins in Mad Max, George Miller's low-budget debut, in which Max is a "Bronze" (cop) in an unspecified post-apocalyptic future with a buddy-partner and family. But, unlike most films set in the devastated future, Mad Max is notable because it is poised between our industrialised world and total regression to medieval conditions. The scale tips towards disintegration when the Glory Riders burn into town on their bikes like an overcharged cadre of Brando's Wild Ones. Representing the active chaos that will eventually overwhelm the dying vestiges of civil society they take everything dear to Max, who then has to exact due revenge. His flight into the same wilds that created the villains artfully sets up the morally ambiguous character of the subsequent films. --Alan E Rapp, Amazon.com

  • Starship Troopers 3 - Marauder [2008] Starship Troopers 3 - Marauder | DVD | (29/09/2008) from £2.99  |  Saving you £14.50 (72.50%)  |  RRP £19.99

  • The Chronicles of Riddick [2004] The Chronicles of Riddick | DVD | (04/07/2011) from £1.61  |  Saving you £4.99 (49.90%)  |  RRP £9.99

    Bigger isn't always better, but for anyone who enjoyed Pitch Black, a nominal sequel like The Chronicles of Riddick should prove adequately entertaining. Writer-director David Twohy returns with expansive sets, detailed costumes, an army of CGI effects artists, and the star he helped launch--Vin Diesel--bearing his franchise burden quite nicely as he reprises his title role. The Furian renegade Riddick has another bounty on his head, but when he escapes from his mercenary captors, he's plunged into an epic-scale war waged by the Necromongers. A fascist master race led by Lord Marshal (Colm Feore), they're determined to conquer all enemies in their quest for the Underverse, the appeal of which is largely unexplained (since Twohy is presumably reserving details for subsequent "chronicles"). With tissue-thin plotting, scant character development, and skimpy roles that waste the talents of Thandie Newton (as a Necromonger conspirator) and Judi Dench (as a wispy "Elemental" priestess), Twohy's back in the B-movie territory he started in (with The Arrival), brought to vivid life on a vast digital landscape with the conceptual allure of a lavish graphic novel. But does Riddick have leadership skills on his resumé? To get an answer to that question, sci-fi fans will welcome another sequel. --Jeff Shannon

  • Dracula Has Risen From The Grave [1968] Dracula Has Risen From The Grave | DVD | (28/06/2013) from £N/A  |  Saving you £N/A (N/A%)  |  RRP £17.99

    It took a long time for Hammer's 1958 version of Dracula to turn into a franchise, and it was ten years before Dracula Has Risen From the Grave, the third film in the series, continued where Dracula--Prince of Darkness (1965) left off. The vampire count is accidentally resurrected by the blood of a priest when Monsignor Muller (the excellent Rupert Davies replacing Peter Cushing, whose Professor Van Helsing is absent) exorcises Castle Dracula. The Lord of the Undead soon has the priest under his power, and sets about claiming the Monsignor's niece Maria (Veronica Carlson) as his bride. Maria is in love with Paul (Barry Andrews), more a 60's English "angry young man" than a Victorian hero, yet only he can save the day, the film contrasting his atheism against much Catholicism. Working as a taut, Gothic thriller, the intensity is maintained to a large degree by James Barnard's excellent score and, of course, by Christopher Lee's magnetic interpretation of Count Dracula. The eroticism is stronger than in previous Hammer Draculas, the palpably electric blood-lust marking the movie as a high-point before the series' gradual decline, beginning with Taste the Blood of Dracula (1970). --Gary S. Dalkin

  • The Watch [DVD] The Watch | DVD | (26/12/2012) from £4.93  |  Saving you £14.20 (71.00%)  |  RRP £19.99

    As the advances in CGI special effects have continued to keep action-movie audiences roaring for bigger and better displays of digital bombast, a trend in Hollywood comedies has upped the ante in a parallel way. Raunchy, risqué, and just plain filthy humour is standard fare for audiences who like their vulgar laughs as much as their superheroic explosions. The two worlds collide in The Watch, a dirty shoot-'em-up whose comic core counters the extreme sci-fi story of an alien race that can't take a joke. Fortunately, the decidedly non-superhuman heroes battle it out with equal parts punches and punch lines. The first-rate cast is headed by Ben Stiller, who has plenty of experience with filthy humour and big-budget action. He also has the movie-star charisma to bring high concept down to the toilet or the gutter, whichever happens to be funnier. Stiller plays Evan, the upstanding, uptight manager of an Ohio Costco who starts to really care about crime after one of his security guards is brutally murdered. The police can't really be bothered (Will Forte is excellent as a pompous local lawman), so Evan starts a neighbourhood watch as a way to take back the night. Unfortunately his recruits turn out to be a less than vigilant vigilante group, with Vince Vaughn as a brawny motor mouth obsessed with protecting his teen daughter, Jonah Hill as an off-kilter arms expert who was rejected by the police academy (for good reason), and the indeterminately ethnic Richard Ayoade (excellent, as he was in The IT Crowd), who's focused only on the kind of action that involves sex and females. The quartet's individual issues are played at maximum laugh-per-minute volume and remain part of the story even after the team realises their crime problem isn't from the inner city, it's from outer space. Turns out a hive of aliens have commandeered Evan's Costco as a base of operations to dominate humanity. After all, what better place to stage an Earth takeover than a place that has everything? (Costco should get a big-box good sport award for signing off on such wall-to-wall product placement.) The script by Jared Stern, Seth Rogen, and Evan Goldberg (the latter two's brilliant writing career also includes Superbad and Pineapple Express) is chock-a-block with jokes. The Watch tries so hard for nonstop laughs that it can't help but yield a high rate of success, especially when the material is worked by such an estimable ensemble of comedy pros. It's clear that director Akiva Schaffer fostered a strong improv vibe on the set (his background is directing shorts on Saturday Night Live). He's best at capturing a spontaneous sketch-comedy tone that drives the constant one-upsmanship between the filthy, shocking shenanigans of the four leads. They get ample help from the supporting cast. In addition to Will Forte as the disinterested cop, Rosemary DeWitt is terrific as Evan's demanding wife. And in an extended, uncredited cameo Billy Crudup plays the weirdest, most enigmatic creepy-insinuation-guy ever. Talk about hiding a dirty secret! There's an overall hit-or-miss quality of comedy and action in The Watch, though there are plenty more tick marks in the hit column. It's all bad-mannered good fun with the badge of a hard-15 rating worn as proudly as a giant splooge of green alien slime. --Ted Fry

  • Pitch Black [2000] Pitch Black | DVD | (28/05/2001) from £2.75  |  Saving you £10.20 (78.50%)  |  RRP £12.99

    Pitch Black is a guilty pleasure that surpasses expectations, even though it owes a major debt to Alien and its cinematic spawn. As he did with The Arrival, director David Twohy revitalises a derivative story, allowing you to forgive its flaws and submit to its visceral thrills. Under casual scrutiny, the plot's logic crumbles like a stale cookie, but it's definitely fun while it lasts. A spaceship crashes on a desert planet scorched under three suns. The mostly doomed survivors include a resourceful captain (Radha Mitchell), a drug-addled cop (Cole Hauser) and a deadly prisoner (Vin Diesel) who quickly escapes. These clashing personalities discover that the planet is plunging into the darkness of an extended eclipse, and it's populated by hordes of ravenous, razor-fanged beasties that only come out at night. The body count rises, and Pitch Black settles into familiar sci-fi territory. What sets the movie apart is Twohy's developing visual style, suggesting that this veteran of straight-to-video schlock may advance to the big leagues. Like the makers of The Blair Witch Project, Twohy understands the frightening power of suggestion; his hungry monsters are better heard than seen (although once seen, they're chillingly effective), and Pitch Black gets full value from moments of genuine panic. Best of all, Twohy's got a well-matched cast, with Mitchell (so memorable with Ally Sheedy in High Art) and Diesel (Pvt. Caparzo from Saving Private Ryan) being the standouts. The latter makes the most of his muscle-man role, and his character's development is one more reason this film works better than it should. --Jeff Shannon, Amazon.com
