The Bridge On The River Kwai | Blu Ray | (06/06/2011)
from £7.00 | Saving you £12.99 (65.00%) | RRP
Based on the true story of the building of a bridge on the Burma railway by British prisoners-of-war held under a savage Japanese regime in World War II, The Bridge on the River Kwai (1957) is one of the greatest war films ever made. The film received seven Oscars, including Best Picture, Director, Performance (Alex Guinness), for Sir Malcolm Arnold's superb music, and for the screenplay from the novel by Pierre Boulle (who also wrote Monkey Planet, the inspiration for Planet of the Apes). The story does take considerable liberties with history, including the addition of an American saboteur played by William Holden, and an entirely fictitious but superbly constructed and thrilling finale. Made on a vast scale, the film reinvented the war movie as something truly epic, establishing the cinematic beachhead for The Longest Day (1962), Patton (1970) and A Bridge Too Far (1977). It also proved a turning-point in director David Lean's career. Before he made such classic but conventionally scaled films as In Which We Serve (1942) and Hobson's Choice (1953). Afterwards there would only be four more films, but their names are Lawrence of Arabia (1962), Dr Zhivago (1965), Ryan's Daughter (1970) and A Passage to India (1984). On the DVD: Too often the best extras come attached to films that don't really warrant them. Not so here, where a truly great film has been given the attention it deserves. The first disc presents the film in the original extra-wide CinemaScope ratio of 2.55:1, in an anamorphically enhanced transfer which does maximum justice to the film's superb cinematography. The sound has been transferred from the original six-track magnetic elements into 5.1 Dolby Digital and far surpasses what many would expect from a 1950s' feature. The main bonus on the first disc is an isolated presentation of Malcolm Arnold's great Oscar-winning music score, in addition to which there is a trivia game, and maps and historical information linked to appropriate clips. The second disc contains a new, specially produced 53-minute "making of" documentary featuring many of those involved in the production of the movie. This gives a rich insight into the physical problems of making such a complex epic on location in Ceylon. Also included are the original trailer and two short promotional films from the time of release, one of which is narrated by star William Holden. Finally there is an "appreciation" by director John Milius, an extensive archive of movie posters and artwork, and a booklet that reproduces the text of the film's original 1957 brochure. --Gary S Dalkin
Kelly's Heroes | Blu Ray | (17/04/2019)
from £7.59 | Saving you £10.40 (57.80%) | RRP
Kelly's Heroes reunited Clint Eastwood with his Where Eagles Dare director Brian G Hutton, then added The Dirty Dozen star Telly Savalas in MGM's quest to turn WWII movie celluloid into box office gold three times running. The result, a sprawling adventure about a group of soldiers led by Kelly (Eastwood) on a private mission behind enemy lines to recover a cache of Nazi treasure, echoed its predecessors but wasn't as successful. While Where Eagle's Dare was somewhat tongue in cheek, Kelly's Heroes went for a cynical comic amorality with many plot parallels to 1969's The Italian Job, written by screenwriter Troy Kennedy-Martin the year before. Donald Sutherland, who also starred in the big-screen M*A*S*H (1970), plays a hippie tank commander decades before his time, and it's hard not to see both movies as more commentaries on Vietnam than on the wars in which they were ostensibly set. Though it is intermittently very funny, and despite some expertly staged action, Kelly's Heroes never really convinces as satire or adventure. On the DVD: Kelly's Heroes is presented on disc in a 2.35:1 anamorphic transfer which is immaculate and taken from a virtually perfect master. The images are so clean and sharp they look brand new, outclassing many current theatrical prints. The three-channel sound concentrates most of the action to the centre speaker but does an excellent job of capturing the often turbulent soundtrack. The only real extra is the original trailer, presented anamorphically at 1.77:1.--Gary S Dalkin
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

The Hurt Locker | Blu Ray | (28/12/2009)
from £3.99 | Saving you £18.00 (72.00%) | RRP
The Hurt Locker presents an intense and unflinching portrayal of elite soldiers who have one of the most dangerous jobs in the world: disarming bombs in the heat of combat. 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.

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.
