The David Lynch Collection | DVD | (25/08/2008)
from £9.49 | Saving you £10.50 (52.50%) | RRP
Set Comprises: Inland EmpireDavid Lynch's first film since the award-winning Mulholland Drive (and his first shot completely on digital) is a complex Hollywood mystery that blurs the lines between fantasy and reality and features an astonishing performance by Laura Dern. Dern plays Nikki Grace an actress preparing for her biggest role yet a Hollywood movie from an acclaimed director (played by Jeremy Irons) opposite an amorous leading man (Justin Theroux). But when she finds herself falling for her co-star she realizes that her life is beginning to mimic the fictional film that they're shooting. Adding to her confusion is the revelation that the current film is a remake of a doomed polish production that was never finished due to an unspeakable tragedy. Mulholland DriveBeautiful bizarre and strangely addictive Mulholland Drive begins as a botched hit results in the meeting of bruised brunette amnesiac Rita (Laura Harring) and blonde would-be Hollywood actress Betty (Naomi Watts - King Kong 21 Grams). Taking the viewer on a memorable neo-noir trip through Hollywood's dark underbelly Lynch dispenses with a conventional narrative in favour of an hallucinogenic assault on the senses that will stay with you long after the credits roll. Elephant ManDavid Lynch creator of Twin Peaks and acclaimed director of 'Eraserhead' 'Blue Velvet' and 'Wild At Heart' directs this bizarre but true story of courage and human dignity. John Hurt gives the performance of a lifetime as John Merrick the worst ""freak"" known to Victorian medical science a man whose body is hideously distorted into a grotesque parody of an elephant. Rescued from a travelling freak show by Sir Frederick Treves Merrick gradually reveals himself to be a strangely sweet and gentle man remarkably unembittered by the degradation and torment he suffered at the circus. Beautifully shot by Freddie Francis and with an excellent supporting cast including Sir John Gielgud Anne Bancroft and Dame Wendy Hiller 'The Elephant Man' is a compelling moving and enchanting story. The film was nominated for eight Oscars including Best Picture Best Director and Best Actor.

The Warriors | Blu Ray | (13/10/2008)
from £7.89 | Saving you £12.10 (60.50%) | RRP
The Warriors combines pure pulp storytelling and surprisingly poetic images into a thoroughly enjoyable cult classic. The plot is mythically pure (and inspired by a legendary bit of Greek history): When a charismatic gang leader is shot at a conclave in the Bronx meant to unite all the gangs in New York City, a troupe from Coney Island called the Warriors get blamed and have to fight all the way back to their own turf--which means an escalating series of battles with colorful and improbable gangs like the Baseball Furies, who wear baseball uniforms and KISS-inspired face make-up. Pop existentialism, performances that are somehow both wooden and overwrought, and zesty, kinetic filmmaking from director Walter Hill (Southern Comfort, 48 Hrs.) result in a delicious and unexpectedly resonant operatic cheesiness. --Bret Fetzer

When a new sergeant James takes over a highly trained bomb disposal team amidst violent conflict he surprises his two subordinates Sanborn and Eldridge by recklessly plunging them into a deadly game of urban combat. James behaves as if he's indifferent to death. As the men struggle to control their wild new leader the city explodes into chaos and James' true character reveals itself in a way that will change each man forever. Winner of the BAFTA Awards for Best Film Best Director Best Original Screenplay Best Cinematography Best Editing and Best Sound. Winner of the Academy Awards for Best Picture Best Director (Kathryn Bigelow) Best Screenplay Best Editing Best Sound Mixing & Best Sound Editing. Play.com Review One of the best films of 2009 The Hurt Locker bears similarities to David Simon and Ed Burns' Generation Kill in its non-judgemental depiction of military life and the motivations of soldiers. It's a complicated and sometimes uncomfortable look into a world in which most of us will never get closer to than on our TV screens. The fact is some soldiers for one reason or another like the thrill of war. Sgt. James (charismatically played by James Renner - 28 Weeks Later) is one such soldier. Not one to do things by the book James is right at the centre of this devastating action film. Unhinged but not without his demons James regularly comes into conflict with his new teammates: the aspirational but conventional Sgt. Sanborn (Anthony Mackie - Notorious) and rabbit in the headlights Spc. Eldridge (Brian Geraghty - The Guardian). The proverbial 'hurt locker' is one they barely keep shut. There's a job to be done even if it does draw them closer to hell with each passing moment. Film buffs will be pleased to learn that The Hurt Locker features sterling cameos from Guy Pearce (The Road) David Morse (16 Blocks) and Ralph Fiennes (briefly reunited with his Strange Days director). Bigelow knows her action as Point Break K-19: The Widowmaker and Near Dark fans will testify and here she has created a battleground where even the camera is nervous - danger even when it doesn't come feels like it's everywhere. Moving through a series increasingly fraught bomb disposals the movie presents an apolitical view of soldiering that whilst not being unique to the genre (Kubrick's Paths Of Glory Coppola's Apocalypse Now and Fuller's The Big Red One) captures a chaos and intensity seldom seen elsewhere. It's refreshing to watch a war film that doesn't preach endlessly about the nature of war but shows you enough horror for you to make up your own mind. Overall we can't urge you strongly enough to open The Hurt Locker and experience this masterpiece from a master director - it's an experience you will not forget in a hurry.

Desert Fox, The / The Desert Rats | DVD | (02/06/2003)
from £3.49 | Saving you £10.00 (66.70%) | RRP
James Mason plays Field Marshal Erwin Rommel in both The Desert Fox (1951) and The Desert Rats (1953), a WWII double-bill on DVD. The Desert Fox, released six years after the end of the War, is a solemnly respectful tribute to Erwin Rommel, Germany's most celebrated military genius. James Mason's portrayal of this gallant warrior became a highlight of his career iconography. The film itself is oddly disjointed, though: a pre-credit commando raid to liquidate Rommel is followed by a flashback to the field-marshal's lightning successes commanding the Afrika Korps--a compressed account via documentary footage and copious narration (spoken by Michael Rennie, who also dubs Desmond Young, the Rommel biographer and one-time British POW appearing briefly as himself). The dramatic core is Rommel's growing disenchantment with Hitler (Luther Adler), his involvement in the plot to assassinate the Fuhrer, and his subsequent martyrdom. The Desert Rats stars Richard Burton in only his second Hollywood role (between Oscar-nominated turns in My Cousin Rachel and The Robe), as a Scottish commando put in charge of a battalion of the 9th Australian Division defending Tobruk. The Aussies don't like him, and with a year of grim North African duty already under his belt, he's not too crazy about his new responsibilities either. The outfit is charged with staving off the battering assaults of Field Marshal Erwin Rommel for two months, to give the British Army time to regroup in Cairo and prepare for a counterattack. In the end, the "desert rats" play hell with the Desert Fox for 242 days, during which time they and their commander develop some mutual respect. This is a solid, workmanlike World War II picture that, having been made in 1953 rather than 1943, can acknowledge a degree of eccentric humanity and soldierly professionalism in the enemy. Featured guest star James Mason reprises his Rommel from The Desert Fox, playing all his scenes in German except for a scene of ironical repartee with Burton. Another distinguished Brit, Robert Newton, gets costar billing as a boozy, self-confessed coward who used to be Burton's schoolmaster. However, a goodly number of Australians--including Chips Rafferty and Charles "Bud" Tingwell rate at least as much screen time. Robert Wise directed, with a trimness that reminds us he started out as an editor, and the pungent black-and-white cinematography is by Lucien Ballard. --Richard T. Jameson
Saturday Night, Sunday Morning | Blu Ray | (22/06/2015)
from £7.59 | Saving you £12.40 (62.00%) | RRP
A key film of the British New Wave Saturday Night And Sunday Morning was a great box-office success - audiences were thrilled by its anti-establishment energy the gritty realism of its setting and most of all by a working-class hero of a fresh and outspoken kind. Based on Alan Sillitoe's largely autobiographical novel the film is set in the grim industrial streets and factories of Nottingham where Arthur Seaton spends his days at a factory bench his Saturday evenings in the local pubs and his Saturday nights with Brenda (Rachel Roberts) wife of a fellow factory worker. Played by Albert Finney with an irresistable animal vitality Arthur is anti-authority (Don't let the bastards grind you down) and unashamedly amoral (What I'm out for is a good time. All the rest is propoganda). With powerful central performances cracking dialogue by Sillitoe and a superb jazz score by Johnny Dankworth Saturday Night And Sunday Morning still stands as a vibrant modern classic.
Mosquito Squadron | DVD | (05/05/2003)
from £3.75 | Saving you £6.58 (50.70%) | RRP
World War II aviation buffs may quibble with the details of Mosquito Squadron, but they'll love it just the same. It's an average war movie, capably directed by Boris Sagal, who thrived in television before he was tragically killed by a helicopter rotor in 1981. At the peak of his post-Man from UNCLE success, David McCallum plays a melancholy RAF ace, leading his squadron of De Havilland "Mosquito" bombers on low-altitude strikes over Nazi strongholds in Germany and France. His ground-based dilemma involves the grieving wife of his best friend, a fellow pilot presumed dead but later discovered alive with other POWs held at a French chalet where the Nazis are developing advanced V-class bombers. The RAF employs bouncing "highballs" capable of penetrating difficult targets, and the rousing climax doubles as a rescue mission and treacherous bombing run. Explosive action compensates for predictable melodrama, and Rocky Horror fans will enjoy seeing Charles ("the Criminologist") Gray as a stuffy RAF Commodore. --Jeff Shannon
