More...

The Three Caballeros

Those with a liking for Disney and a fondness for musicals, in particular, will enjoy this DVD.

More...

Office Christmas Party

It may not be the deepest of films, but its absurd party-throwing antics are deemed acceptable because of the film’s ability to root the characters and their relationships in a believable and admirable manner. Directors Josh Gordon and Will Speck have managed a perfectly-balanced film that highlights all their strengths and rarely shows any of their weaknesses. I applaud the film for being able to achieve so much, with a somewhat simplistic concept,

Toy Story

This is one of the best animated features ever made.

More...

More...

Mamma Roma

The least known of Pier Paolo Pasolini's features also happens to be one of his best. It stars Anna Magnani at her most volcanic, hyperbolic, and magnificent as a Roman prostitute.

More...

Cosmos

If you are were to choose one science program to watch then go no further than Cosmos. It is fun as well as brainy.

More...

Pocket Listing

Pocket Listing is a heart pounding dark comedy/thriller that is intelligent, stylish, and a wild thrill ride.

More...

Bad Neighbours

Hollywood heartthrob Zac Efron and actor Dave Franco star opposite Golden Globe nominee Rose Byrne and talented funnyman Seth Rogen in the hilariously funny comedy, Bad Neighbours, about a young couple whose peaceful lives turn to chaos when a fraternity moves in next door.

More...

The Walk

The screenplay be Zemeckis and Christopher Browne, based on the book To Reach the Clouds by Petit, is long and detailed, and yet, incredibly narrow. The first act does give us details about Petit's childhood, his life in France, and how he got into doing wire-walking, but I still felt that I didn't get to know the character very well, and I knew even less about the supporting characters. The bulk of the two hour movie focuses on the caper, and the actual event itself takes place seemingly in real time in some scenes. However, following the conclusion of the event, the movie simply ends. If ever a story needed a prologue, it was this one.

More...

Killing Them Softly

Dominik's film-noir promised an astounding and thought-provoking two-hour venture, but its superficial characterisation and coldness comes in Killing Them Softly's way, keeping it from accomplishing what needs to be accomplished.

More...

Sin Nombre

Coupled with a sensationally well researched film, Sin Nombre connects with the audience on so many levels. Director and writer, Cary Fukunaga is to be commended for compiling such an extraordinary and significant film.

More...

One of the most thrilling new dramas to come from France received an Emmy Award for “Best Drama Series” at the 40th Award Ceremony held in New York on November 19 2012.

More...

More...

More...

Golden Door

More...

World Stars

World Stars features exclusive interviews with, and match footage of, the 20 biggest names in football.

More...

How To Make Love Like An Englishman

it's an American Britspoitation film, based entirely on Pierce Brosnan's charm, with a little bit of McDowell sprinkled in the cast to get old people like me interested. So much story potential and so many talented actors completely wasted by Hollywood accountants.

More...

Belle

Overall the film is enjoyable, believable and entertaining with a storyline that offers meticulous period detail, wonderful character performances, and deals credibly with race, class and gender.

More...

Lion King 3: Hakuna Mutata

”Lion King 3” is more of an alternate angle to the original film. The story follows the events of the original, mixed in with jokes, events and characters that we didn’t get to see before.

The young ones will be suitably impressed but, for older viewers, who wish to rekindle the love for the original, they should probably just stick to that.

More...

5 to 7

This movie is a great romance. The clash of cultures, age, palates, ethics and worldviews is a delight to watch and I wouldn’t be surprised if mature audiences from most ages enjoyed this casually beautiful cinq-a-sept romp.

More...

Get Smart - Seasons 1 & 2

There has been a great deal of time that has gone into the releases. The original episodes are shown - uncut and beautifully re-mastered. It's a release no fan of Maxwell Smart can miss!

More...

From Paris With Love

‘From Paris with Love’ mostly delivers on the action front. This is high testosterone stuff. It is one of those films where our heroes manage to avoid death from dozens of men wielding automatic machine guns.

More...

The Last Horror Movie

It is both gruesome and unsettling, but also entertaining and unavoidably draws the viewer’s attention and has a final twist that is enough, at the very least, to have you checking your locks.

More...

Safe

There have been a lot of bad action movies made over the years, but Safe certainly isn’t one of them. Some great action sequences and a story that certainly keeps you entertained make for a great stylistic thriller.

More...

The Visit

M. Night Shyamalan (“The Sixth Sense”/“After Earth”/“Signs”) writes and directs a low-budget found footage comical horror pic, with a twist and plenty of cheap thrills. It's a riff on the Hansel and Gretel fairy tale. After Shyamalan's promising start as a filmmaker in his following films he has not lived up to those high expectations. Though this little pic is not particularly good, it's much better than his recent bombs.

More...

Plush

More...

Air

More...

The Bridge of San Luis Rey

The greatest thing about this film is the costuming and set design. It is very often a beautiful film to watch, and your senses are sometimes overcome with a silly romantic longing to be eighteenth century Peru.

More...

Taken Volume 1 - Roswell: The Landing

It's an amazing chronicle of mankind’s relationship to the extraterrestrial in our midst and shows Spielberg's vision in bringing a treat for sci-fi fans.

More...

Boy Meets Girl

’Boy Meets Girl’ sometimes looks and feels like a documentary, that is as frightening as it is shocking. It creates a very dark tapestry of images of abuse.

More...

Che Part Two: Guerilla

One thing still. Che's character shows intelligence, cruelty and intolerance. Yet Soderbergh keeps dodging the human side of Che. It's a very brave effort to not delve into the psyche in a long film.

Che Part Two offers some frustration but is generally fascinating.

More...

Finding Nemo

As the biggest animated feature of all time and highest grossing animated film ever released in Australia, the Disney/Pixar film Finding Nemo is now released on DVD and video.

More...

Lust, Caution

Ang Lee is a director who concentrates on forbidden love and the consequences of stifling our passion or swallowing emotions. This is a story about a beautiful spy who seduces and falls for her target in the lush espionage tale Lust, Caution. Like most Lee movies it is a beautifully photographed and one that earned an R rating.

More...

X-Men Origins: Wolverine

Wolverine is a worthy follow-up to the X-Men movie trilogy. It’s a prequel of sorts, spanning 150 years, and follows mutant Wolverine. Hugh Jackman reprises his role as the main character in an action-packed, over-the-top movie, befitting its comic book roots.

More...

I Love Your Work

An interesting film, but one that may leave you a little ‘dazed and confused.’

More...

More...

Camp Rock

The movie will only appeal to a certain age group, and it's definitely not in the class of High School Musical so don't expect similar success.

More...

Saludos Amigos

Made in 1943 Saludos Amigos was the first of the so-called “anthology films”. This is a mixture of musical, comical animation and a cultural documentary of South America.

More...

Brothers (Brodre)

A beautiful film of twists and turns, many you don’t expect. The simplicity of the script, yet the impeccable acting and the blunt and imposing texture of the filming, together create an atmosphere of unshakeable emotion.

More...

The Victim

Biehn has been clever in ensuring everyone knows that he wasn’t expecting much from this movie. He himself seems genuinely surprised that it’s picked up the cult following it has. We agree with him, it’s not a great movie but what we do hope though is that he keeps directing. The Victim is a good start and could well lay the foundations for him to go from cult actor to cult director and a master of the Grindhouse genre.

More...

A Bug's Life

…the visual sight of this world in computer animation is very good, making the film a real delight. This is a film that grabs the viewer with its imaginative world,…

More...

Essential World Cinema: ITALY

The overall package is fabulous because you won't be able to pick a set of three better Italian films that give that “essential” quality.

More...

The Purge

In an America wracked by crime and overcrowded prisons, the government has sanctioned an annual 12-hour period in which any and all criminal activity - including murder - becomes legal. The police can’t be called. Hospitals suspend help. It’s one night when the citizenry regulates itself without thought of punishment.

More...

Last Vegas

The laughs come along steadily and while they may not be kind of moments that will make you laugh out loud they will at least have you chuckling which is more than can be said for a lot of other films around at the moment. The serious storyline though will railroad the film for younger audience members though who expect a film set in Las Vegas to be full of sex and nudity.

More...

Everybody's Fine

This is a honest and heartfelt account of the trails and tribulations of what it is to be a modern family.

More...

Carmen Electra’s Naked Women’s Wrestling League Volume 1

…the headline on the DVD cover – BUSH vs HUSSEIN. It sets up a tantalising prospect in this first volume of the titillating series of the Naked Women’s Wrestling League.

More...

A Dance To The Music Of Time (4-DVD set)

The production is excellent, and the acting is extremely good. Once you become familiar with the casting arrangements, it comes across as a worthy adaptation, and is well recommended.

More...

Che Part One: The Argentine

The main thrust is the Cuban revolution as Guevara and Fidel Castro land on the island intent on toppling the dictatorship of Fulgencio Batista. Then there was Che's later visit to the United States, during which he addressed the United Nations. The latter segment is actually well shot in a doco-style.

More...

More...

Aladdin 2-Disc Special Edition

There is a vast amount of extra content not seen at the cinematic release and young ones will have a ball with all the extras.

There is something for everyone to enjoy, however, and the games and trailers are well recommended.

More...

The Angriest Man In Brooklyn

While The Angriest Man in Brooklyn is centred on a worthwhile message — pay attention to what matters in life before it's too late — it's ultimately an anxious, exhausting viewing experience.

More...

Spring Breakers

To childhood friends and college students Faith (Selena Gomez), Brit (Ashley Benson), Candy (Vanessa Hudgens) and Cotty (Rachel Korine), spring break was the ultimate goal, the perfect reward for enduring years of study.

More...

More...

Standing in the Shadows of Motown

The Motown sound started in Detroit during the 1950s and the foundation came from a group of musicians known as The Funk Brothers.

More...

Brother Bear

The film lacks some oomph and it's surprising that the writers couldn't come up with a better-developed story and fully realised characters. The film does have a fan base, however, and those who are Disney devotees should enjoy this DVD edition, which provides satisfactory audio/video presentation and very good additional features.

More...

Hidden Figures

Hidden Figures is the remarkable true story of Katherine G. Johnson, Dorothy Vaughan and Mary Jackson, and how they helped the USA send a man into space.

More...

Diary Of The Dead

Romero needs to be congratulated for breaking free from the standard B-Grade zombie flick and making this a film with a conscience. There is an age old debate whether a war journalist should capture the horrors of war or put the camera down and help people and it is brilliantly explored in ‘Diary Of The Dead’.

More...

All About E

All About E is one of those hidden Australian gems that showcases both our on-screen and off-screen talent. It tackles themes of identity and ambitions and deserves a far wider release that it has had so far.

More...

Plastic

The character dynamics in this tale (allegedly based on a true story) contain no surprises - we have the hero-type, his decent back-up guy, the dozy one, and the unreliable one. But the plot roams all over the place, and you are never quite sure how it is going to end up. The young cast does quite well.

More...

More...

The Longest Week

The Longest Week is a hilarious, light hearted rom-com, boasting an all-star cast including JASON BATEMAN (Juno), OLIVIA WILDE (Princess Mononoke), and BILLY CRUDUP (Her), told over the course of one seemingly long and never-ending week.

Untraceable

However, in this movie the problems are noticeable, to the contrived and inexcusably ordinary script. Hoblit's direction saves the film from being one of total lowlights.

More...

Creature Comforts - Series 2 Part 2

Creature Comforts is a very funny claymation series about the lives of animals as told by the animals themselves. Unscripted and unashamedly funny, the British public once again speaks through the mouths of their plasticine counterparts.

More...

Alice In Wonderland 2010

If you have come to see a classic remake of the original Alice in Wonderland, you may be in for a disappointment. It also may a bit too dark and Burton-esque for children.

More...

Carlito's Way: Rise To Power

The film isn’t a patch on the original film. The production values are lesser, the performers aren’t as entrancing, and the storyline’s not really there. But, as a direct to video effort, it’s rather good.

More...

Death At A Funeral

These sort of absurdities often run the risk of going terribly wrong if not handled properly, but director Frank Oz benefits from a solid cast that sells the material well.

The film features a number of in-jokes and cameos from the original series, and the homoerotica that underlies so many cop shows and action movies is played very effectively for laughs.

More...

The Devil's Double

With Dominic Cooper in “The Devil's Double”, we have the case of one of the great dual performances.

More...

Nacho Libre

It's terribly predictable but bizarre, outrageous, entertaining and requires absolutely no concentration.

More...

Danny Bhoy - Live At The Sydney Opera House

Danny Bhoy is a Scottish comedian who has endeared himself to Australian audiences through various comedy festivals around Australia over the past few years.

More...

John Pilger's Australia

But in a time where politicians are riding on a wave of nationalism and xenophobia with the aid of an implicit media, the voice of the loan maverick John Pilger is not only welcome but a necessity.

More...

The Mighty Peking Man

It‘s the Shaw Brothers’ spin on the King Kong theme and might be thought of as cheapening the past classic with cliches and shameless antics. But the film is inviting to watch because of its oddball charm.

More...

The Ghost Writer

The main twist of the film is foreshadowed, but only if you’re paying attention. The film is certainly engaging and intriguing, and I'm sure people well versed in mysteries will have no problems following along and that they will very much enjoy it.

More...

Behind Enemy Lines 2

This film could easily have been its own film. Axis of Evil is surprisingly suspenseful and somewhat of a guilty pleasure. Great credit should go to the filmmakers when it has the ability to “get you in” from the start.

More...

Deadpool

Marvel Comics’ most famous anti-hero comes to Digital HD. After its successful cinematic run, the digital release of Deadpool comes with a ton of special features attached to it, providing plenty of extra entertainment after viewing an already very entertaining film.

More...

The Body Beneath

The Body Beneath is a cult flick that is, despite its age, bone chilling and extremely violent and is bound to move even the most frequent horror viewers.

More...

Two-Lane Blacktop

Two-Lane Blacktop was largely ignored in its day.

Two-Lane Blacktop remains mysterious and compelling, thanks to its sparse dialogue and enigmatic characters.

More...

The Machinist

Only a short way into The Machinist, styles, imagery, themes and characters from a collection of films and director’s work, begin to percolate through the viewer’s mind.

More...

Get Smart - The Complete Five Seasons

Overall, the Get Smart DVD collection of Seasons 1 to 5 is undeniably one of the finest television releases I've ever seen. The shows look and sound as they should and included with them are many hours of extras.

More...

The Olympic Series Golden Moments

The Olympic Series & the Olympic Series Golden Moments is released in this great Olympic year for London by Beyond Home Entertainment. Each title includes the greatest moments of Olympic sporting history from the Summer and Winter Games.

More...

The Quiet American

“The Quiet American” takes place in Vietnam during 1951-52. The central character is aging British journalist Thomas Fowler, who is covering the French Indo-China War (1946-54) for a London newspaper.

More...

The short films of Francois Ozon

Ozon offers impressive tapas here, with concise, impeccably structured short films. Plot twists are reminiscent of Roald Dahl, while the sensual undercurrents approach Anais Nin’s erotica, without being nearly as explicit.

More...

Slaughterhouse-Five

Writer Stephen Geller has done an excellent job in adapting Vonnegut Jr.’s story, and director George Roy Hill succeeds in bringing to life what I am sure was deemed by many to be an un-filmable novel.

More...

Staten Island

The intricate plot could have easily turned into a convoluted mess, but, thanks to a tight, intelligent screenplay, it remains focused, easy-to-follow and engaging throughout.

More...

The Woodsman

The story can be seen as one where you look into the life of someone that society would like to see put away forever. It’s an unnerving portrait of hard-won redemption.

More...

Live Forever

This is a fascinating and honest look at the rise and fall of British pop music through the mid-1990s.

More...

The Godfather Part III

There isn’t the force and dynamics of the previous two films, but it is still worthy. The opera scenes are superb and Al Pacino’s performance towards the end of the film, particularly his display of emotions, is brilliant.

More...

The End (Fin)

Jorge Torregrossa's The End (Fin) is an apocalyptic thriller which puts forth an unforgettable vision of the end of humanity.

More...

Bambi

Bambi is one of Walt Disney's greatest triumphs and one of the all-time most requested Disney classics. It is widely believed that Bambi has had the greatest impact on viewers of any Disney film. Originally theatrically released in 1942, it has been re-released many times since for millions of fans.

More...

Princesses

Director Fernando León de Aranoa's account of Spanish prostitution is almost all surface, concentrating so heavily on the personal and professional ordeals of its characters that it barely exhibits any bigger interest in the external forces that conspire to place women in such circumstances.

More...

The Godfather

The Godfather is, in my opinion, the best film ever made. This is epic filmmaking at its best.

More...

Before Dawn

…the slow pace and choppy technicalities will deter all but the most hardcore genre fans, although the more determined zombie-philes will find something to sink their teeth into.

More...

The Camomile Lawn - 2 DVD set

This is a highly regarded British series with some excellent acting performances. It came to Australia with great expectations in the early 1990s and it didn't let anyone down as a quality drama.

More...

B-Girl

B-Girl is nothing new in the dance movie syndrome - along the lines of ‘Fame’ and the ‘Step-Up’ series. The movie certainly please if you're looking for some great moves and will satisfy strongly. But as a movie proper, it doesn't really excite.

More...

The Godfather Part II

With a brilliant film structure and exciting acting and cinematography, The Godfather Part 2 ranks, in my opinion, alongside The Godfather, as in the best two films ever made.

More...

The Eye

Although stylish, this film wasn't as horrifying as I was hoping for. The ghosts weren't threatening and the scares weren't long enough.

More...

Picnic At Hanging Rock

A hauntingly beautiful film that helped put Australian films on the map in the mid-1970s.

More...

Melody Time

This film was made in 1948. It’s a collection of 7 shorts and is considered the last of the anthology features of little-known features produced during World War II.

More...

Demon Lover

From the beginning Demon Lover appears to be an unlikely take on the subject it portrays - illegal animated porn. Shot in luminescent light, the first third contains genuine character interaction and appears to be more than just a superficial take on skin flicks.

More...

Ichi The Killer

It's not a stand-alone piece and lacks the charisma of a lasting anime. The plot is cliched but could have worked well if the film weren't so clearly engineered to maximise bloodshed and sexual titillation.

More...

Thirteen Conversations About One Thing

It offers not only some excellent performances, but an interesting set of stories that illustrate life’s pursuit of happiness…

More...

Pooh's Heffalump Movie

As a welcome dose of old-fashioned animation for parents and a delightful, easy-to-follow experience for kids, this is a nostalgic cartoon feature for fans of the Pooh series.

More...

Essential World Cinema: UK

An excellent and diverse collection of British films comprise the latest in the Essential World Cinema DVD sets.

More...

Bombon El Perro

Bombón El Perro is a wonderful story of hope out of despair.

More...

National Treasure 2: Book Of Secrets

It is a pretty good action/adventure treasure hunting film for the family and, while not bad for a sequel, but it's not as deep or mysterious as one might have imagined.

More...

The History Of Mr Polly

The team of director Gillies Mackinnon and screenwriter Adrian Hodges accomplish a solid piece of British drama in bringing this adaptation to television.

More...

The Vow

The Vow is a completely inoffensive experience, yet is never bland. You'll guess the end long before The Cure's “Pictures of You” kicks in to draw the film to a close, but still, the film possesses a charm that ensured I happily went along for the ride.

More...

Strange Planet

Strange Planet follows the lives of two groups of 20-somethings in Australia over the course of a year of their lives. They bounce from relationship to relationship and one emotional crisis after another, all the while searching for love and meaning.

More...

Me & Orson Welles

Fans of theatrical history, especially Orson Welles fans, will find Me and Orson Welles an interesting and entertaining movie to watch.

More...

Watchmen (2 DISC SPECIAL EDITION)

The sets are beautiful: 1980s New York, re-created in Vancouver, is seedy and sophisticated

More...

Ong Bak

Like most other great martial arts film, the story isn’t as important as the action you see on screen. Tony Jaa and his physical abilities provide the impact that makes good viewing.

More...

The Cat Returns

The Cat Returns is not just a story for children, but a film that can inspire and delight people of all ages. The issues of fate and the necessity to believe in oneself in life are conveyed throughout the film, causing any viewer to reflect on their own life.

More...

Warm Bodies

Warm Bodies is rather funny, charming and entertaining when it's not trying too hard to make its point. While by no means a horror film, its new spin on some very familiar zombie tropes makes for a rather enjoyable time regardless of its shortcomings.

More...

Sex And Fury

…there is an real elegance to the film, especially the action sequences. It's the type of film that Quentin Tarantino often refers to as an inspiration behind the Kill Bill films.

More...

The Incredibles

Being a leader in the animation game, Pixar would be ecstatic in its success over the past ten years. Now, The Incredibles sits high up amongst the pack. This film is extremely humorous in its look at family values and the quest for peace.

More...

Kill Bill Vol.1

Tarantino fills Kill Bill with fantastic moments. There are scenes and shots in this movie which are outstanding, with a fantastic and distinct style…

More...

La Strada

This 1953 Italian movie won Federico Fellini the first of his four Best Foreign Picture Academy Awards. It was well deserved - this is a wonderful piece of filmmaking. La Strada is brilliant and compelling viewing.

More...

Girls Of The Playboy Mansion Season 1

The lovely young ladies allow us into their unique daily lives as they laugh, love, play, and party hard, giving rise to why theirs is a prestigious position. One can only wonder how many other young women are in the queue behind them waiting to get into the inner sanctum.

More...

Princess Mononoke

Writer/director Hayao Miyazaki has made a very good film. The story is compelling and the characters interesting. The animation is beautiful, the music is superb, and the visuals are spectacular. What is really impressive, however, is the intelligence and empathy behind the story.

More...

Love & Rage

Love & Rage is meant to be a story of obsessive love, but it never builds up sufficient momentum to generate suspense.

More...

Fight Night - Boxing's Best Part 1

This is a very special DVD for fight fans as it covers the careers of three legendary heavyweight fighters of the 20th century – Rocky Marciano, Jack Dempsey, and Joe Louis.

James Cameron's Deepsea Challenge 3D

DEEPSEA CHALLENGE follows the dramatic story of Cameron’s personal odyssey as he undertakes an expedition of such historic proportion and risk that it has been compared to putting a man on the moon.

More...

Boxing Day

It’s a unique film and worthy viewing for those who appreciate uncompromising drama with high production values.

More...

Cry Wolf

This is classic Wes Craven-style horror: the pervasive eeriness, the cat-and-mouse murder scenes, the predictable twists.

More...

The Far Pavilions

At times this movie was slow-moving, but the battle scenes were spirited and the snobbishness of the social scene was deftly portrayed. Overall though, The Far Pavillions shows India as it has never been seen before on film.

More...

Hyde Park On Hudson

Set just prior to the Second World War, Hyde Park on Hudson is a sweet, charming and comical depiction of the relationship between then American president Franklin Roosevelt and his distant cousin Daisy Suckley,…

More...

Hollywoodland

This is director Allen Coulter’s debut film, and it takes a unique look at the famous Superman through the tragic life of one of the many actors who donned the cape.

More...

Dreamgirls

The glitz of a Broadway musical is well transferred to the screen in this colourful story that follows the rise of girl group “The Dreamettes” and the struggles they encounter as they try to make their way to the top of the charts.

More...

Chasing Amy

There are some wonderful moments in “Chasing Amy”, both from the performances by Adams, Affleck and Jason Lee, as well as the dialogue from Smith, which is both very funny and very honest.

More...

Fun and Fancy Free

It is Disney’s 9th full-length animated film and is the last time that Walt Disney was the voice of Mickey Mouse.

More...

Jaws - 30th Anniversary Edition

Based on Peter Benchley’s book, this was a ground-breaking and brilliantly made in its day. It brought Steven Spielberg to prominence.

More...

Knife Edge

One main problem with the film was the building of tension. It took far too long, and was incredibly dull and sometimes forced, spoiling the horror aspect of the film.

More...

Reds: Special Edition

The film encounters the social and cultural changes in Russia - greater expression of politics and art and sex.

More...

Mulan 2

While the film's overall effort is not as sensational as the original, it offers solid family entertainment, healthy female role models, and a handful of catchy songs.

More...

Butterfly Kiss

‘Butterfly Kiss’ is a tender yet disturbing story of a relationship formed between two women, and takes the viewer deep into the psyche of a murderesses mind.

More...

Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides

The temptation to do something fresh is often outweighed by the fear of losing whatever it was that made it successful in the first place. This tries to do both, but ends up just trying too hard.

More...

Bande a part (Band Of Outsiders)

This is one of Jean-Luc Godard's most accessible and most enjoyable films. It is spirited early 60's New Wave in how he contravenes movie convention, and not so abstract like he became a few years later.

More...

Looking For Eric

…Looking For Eric has a lot of heart, and the performances are very good. Cantona's thick French accent gets by adequately. It isn't a bad watch, even for those of a non-football type.

More...

Cinderella - Special Edition

It is a timeless story that is just as good and relevant now as it was many years ago when it was created. Disney has made something that will be around forever…

There is a disc packed with extras, including deleted scenes, lots of music, documentaries, galleries and more.

More...

Making Venus

An interesting documentary, “Making Venus” tells the story of Jason and Julian, two friends who want to be the new ‘superstars of the film world’. Documentary maker Gary Doust was on set to chronicle this dynamic duo producing “The Venus Factory”, a low budget Australian film about an actor with high hopes who is drawn into the world of porn.

More...

Grease 30th Anniversary Edition

To think it is thirty years and the film still stands tall in dialogue, performances and the general production. It is been fully remastered and restored with great sharpness and colour.

More...

Dark Days

Dark Days is a documentary from the US released in 2000, but shot over a number of years before that, by first time filmmaker and British expatriate Marc Singer. It chronicles the daily lives of a community of homeless people who have made their home in the subway tunnels beneath Penn station in New York.

More...

Trouble Every Day

Interesting to observe the little dialogue and visual manners by the protagonsists and how the slow piecing together of what is going on is a key factor in this controversial and somewhat disturbing film.

More...

The Girl Who Leapt Through Time - 2-DISC SET

Japanese Anime is outstanding in that it can transcend western animation and adapt storylines to suit an adult audience. The Girl Who Leapt Through Time is no exception, with the story of Makoto both enchanting and poignant.

More...

World Trade Centre

World Trade Centre is one of the most inspiring true stories made to film.

More...

A Mighty Heart

A Mighty Heart is a genuine and heartfelt account of tragedy. The excellent performances reflect a true sense of the frustration and suffering of all those involved.

More...

Eat Pray Love

While there is a lot to admire in this film, most of it is the scenery. There’s the stunning architecture and food of Italy, gorgeous sunsets and temples in India and the hillsides of Bali will take your breath away.

More...

Intimate Confessions Of A Chinese Courtesan

…the elaborate sets, well-crafted story and exotic characters work wonderfully together to move the film forward. When the action moves up a notch, it's done with a vengeance.

More...

How To Lose Friends & Alienate People

This is a funny film along with being an intriguing inside look of the billion-dollar world of magazine and celebrity control.

More...

Gladiator: Extended Special Edition

This new special extended edition of ‘Gladiator,’ personally overseen by Scott, delivers an additional seventeen minutes of action packed drama to the audience. The new scenes are not ground breaking or story altering; however they add a little more context and drama to the storyline for fans of the original.

More...

Breaking And Entering

A thought-provoking, and ultimately very satisfying, exploration of communication and yearning, Breaking and Entering is a quietly affecting movie, one that sneaks up on you and makes you care deeply about its players without knowing or expecting it.

More...

Oz - Complete First Season

The first series of Oz deals with controversial subjects and gives viewers a close eye into the taboo and unknown of prison with all its gory glory.

More...

Fight Night Vol 1: The Thrilla In Manilla / The Rumble In The Jungle

It remains one of the most compelling fights in the history of the sport and it was said that both men were never the same again, emotionally and physically.

More...

Kill Bill Vol.2

“Kill Bill Vol. 1 isn't entirely successful as one film. It needs its second half.”
It’s clear from the start that Tarantino is going for a different tone in Vol. 2. The pace is more languid, and the dialogue is drawn out for effect.

More...

In The Loop

The characters in this film all co-exist in a state of collective panic, mass ignorance and delusional self-importance, which ensures that the film never wanes in its dialogue heavy plot, but captures the skittish and slippery attempts to make the government appear as if they are actually qualified to run the country.

More...

Time To Go John

Aside from the politics, the empathy of the filmmaking and the clean direction is a great showcase of filmmakers in Australia.

More...

In Enemy Hands

It’s an interesting premise that is handled with absolutely no subtlety by director Tony Giglio, who seems much more at home directing scenes of sweaty panic than anything containing real emotional resonance.

More...

Cedar Boys

Although the story is nothing particularly new, the film makes you genuinely care what happens to its characters, particularly Tarek. You desperately want him to overcome the odds. Overall, Cedar Boys is a worthy film, being a tough-as-nails crime story.

More...

A Fighting Season

The film may leave a sour taste in the mouth on an ethical note but it's worth seeing just for the terrific acting performances.

More...

Caro Diario (Dear Diary)

This is another of those quirky films made by Italian director Nanni Moretti. It's very warm and idiosyncratic,…

More...

Mayor Of Sunset Strip

This is a documentary about Rodney Bingenheimer, a Los Angeles radio DJ who has been a dedicated mover and shaker since the 1960s. To millions of Americans he was the voice of KROQ Radio. Propelled by a hit-packed soundtrack, the film offers a lively, funny look at the status of celebrity.

More...

The Dick Cavett Show - Hollywood Greats

Cavett was able to make each guest feel at ease. This, in turn, makes them feel comfortable enough to talk about their lives and careers.

More...

Into The Shadows

He tackles a subject which has been on the minds of many observers. Consequently, he gathered thoughts from several key players. Scarano compiles an impressive cross-section of views from exhibitors, distributors, actors, writers, directors and other industry folk keen to put in their two bob's worth.

More...

The Root of All Evil?

For a man who preaches the need for evidence, it is surprising to find that Dawkins has none to back his claims, only pseudo-science presented by a man with a respectable title, preaching religious hatred in the guise of free speech.

More...

Hostel Part II

The sequel to the highly successful “Hostel”, writer/director Eli Roth returns with another shocking and brutal foray into the lives of three Americans…

More...

Essential World Cinema: FRANCE

A very good set of French films, especially worthwhile for the acting performances, which are exquisite.

More...

The Chronicles Of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch & The Wardrobe

The script is reasonably tight, the actors have been aptly cast (especially the wonderful Tilda Swinton as the evil Queen of Narnia), while the music is strong and the cinematography is delightful.

More...

Les Murray's World Football Challenge (Interactive Trivia Game)

SBS Head of Sport, Les Murray, has been the mainstay since the broadcaster entered Australian households in 1980 and has been a champion for football throughout the years.

As the “face of football” Les has devised his World Football Challenge, an interactive trivia game where you can test your knowledge on world football in a multiple-choice competition.

More...

L'Avventura

Watch for the stunning sets, lush locations, dexterous camera work, and sexy cast. It makes you forget about cinematic workings.

More...

Indochine

Set in French Indochina in the 1930’s it tackles numerous social and political issues of the time.

More...

The Big Empty

…it is an imaginative independent film for people who like movies that walk on the weird side.

More...

Nick Broomfield – Adventures In The Sex Trade

Nick Broomfield has been making documentary films for over thirty years now, and this DVD set is a very interesting compilation marking his development over that time.

More...

Absolute Beginners

The film opens with a wild dance along the streets – showing this to be a film that emphasises style over substance. The focus of this cult musical lies on teenagers’ growing influence on music, fashion, etc. in 1950s London…

More...

Romulus My Father

The film celebrates the unbreakable bond between father and son.

More...

Wings Of Nature

It's a French documentary and the filmmakers take viewers on a bird's journey.

It complements the excellent “Travelling Birds” documentary from the same filmmakers.

More...

King of Beggars

King of Beggars is a fast-paced and entertaining action-comedy film. Its depiction of imperial China is delightfully vibrant and colourful, …

More...

The Trip

Most of the film is just back and forth banter between the two British comedians. They compare their Michael Caine impressions and they are amazingly spot on.

More...

Don's Party

It is the night of the Australian election, 1969, and Don Henderson (John Hargreaves) throws a party and watches the results come in with all his friends.

His friends are a disparate bunch, with sex and politics being a big sticking point for some.

More...

The Walker

The Walker is a story of a high society male escort who unsuspectingly becomes involved in a murder case.

More...

Europa Europa

Holland has taken a touching subject, aligned a magnificent cast and has successfully processed a movie that captures the realities of war.

More...

Man On Wire

The fate of the Twin Towers is never touched on, instead we are presented with a beautiful documentary that shows us the tenacity of the human spirit, how fragile yet courageous we can be. And it represents the Twin Towers as they originally were – as structural works of art.

More...

The Heckler

Yes, despite the fact that director first time feature director Ben Plazzer and screenwriter, Steve Mitchell really should have done a couple of more rewrites on The Heckler’s screenplay before they went into production, this is a film that actually runs quite smoothly. The film avoids many of the pitfalls that other body-swap films have fallen into over the years and for the most piece this is a nice character driven film that manages to produce a few laughs along the way as well…

More...

Treasure Planet

“Treasure Planet” may not be one of Disney's finest efforts in the past several years, but it's a brisk feature that offers some worthwhile visuals.

More...

The Little Mermaid

The Little Mermaid is an important film in animation and has an entertainment value that supersedes age or gender.

More...

Hong Kong Legends - Iceman Cometh, The Master, The Odd Couple

Universal Pictures releases three martial arts films under its Hong Kong Legends banner. More accurately, the films are re-releases, utilising the digital format to freshen up what traditionally well-worn prints. But despite their crisp looking transfer, the films have lost none of their B-movie appeal, evoking a time before the multiplex, when a trip to a rundown theatre to catch a chop-socky double feature was a guilty pleasure.

More...

Deja Vu

Visually, this is a very enjoyable and compelling film. It has solid action credentials with director Tony Scott at the helm and Jerry Bruckheimer in the producer's chair.

More...

The Town is Quiet

This movie has underlying issues as well, ones that are not quite so confronting. Globalisation, war, politics and lack of parenting love, are all things that contribute to the eventual demise and destruction of Guediguian’s characters. It is these subtler messages that make his movie so intriguing and unpredictable.

More...

Eurotrip Uncut

Overall, “Eurotrip” is entertaining and had some very funny moments. There is a little more nudity and swearing in the DVD version.

More...

The Wrong Man

The Wrong Man is a comic thriller that twists and turns its way through an underworld of crime and revenge where nothing is as it seems.

More...

The Perfect Man

The rest of the movie however, is just plain ordinary. The plot is silly. The writing is poor, creating situations with no realism whatsoever, not to mention the transparent characters.

More...

The Hunter

Hearing that this film secured international sales just after I viewed the film came as no surprise at all as this is a thriller that would translate into any language. It’s story is strong enough to suck you in and the beautiful visuals of the Tasmanian wilderness make it a pleasure to look at.

More...

Lion King 2: Simba's Pride

From the hilarious humour of Timon And Pumbaa to the magnificent, adventure world of the Serengeti, an all-new story is created.

More...

Jersey Girl

There are a few nods to Smith’s past films here and there, and as usual, there are some familiar faces from his previous work. Smith’s recent experience of becoming a father obviously informed the film.

More...

An Inconvenient Truth

It's amazing how a lecture becomes such compelling viewing. An Inconvenient Truth is little more than a series of graphs and charts,…

The documentary works well due to Gore's passion and thorough research…

More...

Black And White

This is an inspirational story from Australia’s recent past and is about bigotry, social injustice, and a real-life murder trial that was headline news in the late 1950s.

More...

The Tunnel

The tunnel is both a political thriller and historical drama with an authentic documentary feel. Apart from some questionable sub-titles, the film is packaged well on DVD.

More...

Pirates Of The Caribbean 2: Dead Man's Chest

It's a swashbuckling ride of devilish humour. Admittedly, the plot is a thin one, but who really cares when a movie is this much fun to watch.

More...

Dan In Real Life

There are probably too many cliched characters and wasted ideas for Dan In Real Life to fly high as a totally enjoyable viewing experience.

More...

Tarzan and Jane

Like most other Disney direct-to-video sequels, Tarzan & Jane isn’t up to the usual Disney standard. Unfortunately, it isn’t well animated and it lacks the spark to be seen as a great DVD package.

More...

Suffragette

Find out the beginnings of women’s rights with the inspirational film that tracks the story of the foot soldiers of the early feminist movement in the UK. SUFFRAGETTE reveals the intensity of the time for women fighting for the right to vote, from the genteel and educated classes to the working class, a protest movement that still has an impact upon the world today.

More...

Mao Shan Jiang Shi Quan (The Shadow Boxing)

This is a very strange film, but also an interesting mix of genres and an original attempt at a vampire style film.

More...

Aunty Jack's Wollongong The Brave

Popular characters from the ABC hit series The Aunty Jack Show are marked for recognition in this DVD. These are four stand-alone features from the team that brought Aunty Jack.

More...

Oranges & Sunshine

More...

Carmen Electra’s Naked Women’s Wrestling League Volume 2

The women's championship[ is on the line with the amazing Twin Peaks in combat aginst Wicca St.James for the title.

More...

Reno 911!: Miami

Based on the Comedy Channel's television series, it is difficult to translate into a full length feature film, but fans of the show will no doubt appreciate it.

More...

Essential World Cinema: GERMANY

The overall set of films is good but perhaps one could be mislead into thinking that if these are indicative of the standard of “essential” German cinema, then it falls short compared with other nations.

More...

Diary Of A Mad Black Woman

Diary of a Mad Black Woman may be considered a little too ambitious and tonally schizophrenic for its own good, but it does demonstrate Perry's promise,…

More...

Eye Of The Storm

It looks beautiful, the performances are excellent, the themes and characters are explored confidently and in all their intricacies, and the dialogue is well-crafted. Highly recommended.

More...

Stargate SG-1 Series 10

STARGATE SG-1 fans can now rejoice in having the opportunity to purchase the final Season 10 of the long running series on DVD.

More...

Wilfred Series 2 (2-DVD set)

But what is so charming about this show is that the absurdity of Adam and Wilfred’s relationship, set in suburban Australia, is enough to keep this comedy highly addictive.

More...

The Shadow Whip

Although a simplistic story, ‘The Shadow Whip’ boasts numerous kick-ass fighting scenes with more whip lashing than you’re likely to see anywhere else.

More...

Beautiful Boxer

Beautiful Boxer is the antithesis of any Rocky movie. It substitutes Stallone’s brawn for self development, in one of the most gracefully done and touching foreign films of recent years.

More...

The Sorcerer And The White Snake

The martial arts sequences are disappointing, mainly overwhelmed by unconvincing CGI, and Jet Li fans should probably wait for his next outing.

More...

Submarine

This is a film that will most likely become a cult favourite, but it feels like it may also be a film that needs a couple of viewings before you totally fall in love with it. Not quite as good as some of the black-humour films to come out of the U.K. of the last few years, but still an okay watch.

More...

Goya's Ghost

Goya's Ghosts is a sweeping historical epic, told through the eyes of celebrated Spanish painter Francisco Goya…

More...

The Barry Sheene Story

A double DVD Special Edition celebrating life of one of Britain’s greatest motorcycle champions. It comes twelve months after the tragic death of a much-loved sporting personality.

More...

Joan Rivers - (Still a) live At The Palladium - Allegedly

This is Joan Rivers at her ultimate best. She doesn’t give an inch as she sets out to ridicule, indulge, and berate whoever needs the treatment. She does it in a terrific stand up routine - a high quality show.

More...

Futurama: The Beast With A Billion Backs

The story line is a bit messy but if you love Futurama it works just like a supersized episode. Definitely one for the fans.

More...

Suite 16

This is an erotic thriller directed by Dominique Deruddere and set in the French Riviera. It tells of two men; Chris, an arrogant, good-looking young man, and Glover, a wealthy man confined to a wheelchair, sitting it out in a comfortable hotel.

More...

Joyeux Noel

Joyeux Noël is a heart-warming story about courage and dignity. Anchored by an excellent international cast this deeply moving and uplifting film features scenes of great bravery, simple decency and extraordinary humour.

More...

Casino - Special Edition 2-DVD 10th Anniversary

Combining extreme brutality with dramatic tension that impacts upon the audience even more than the violence, Scorsese has made an art form of this type of film.
Casino is one of Scorsese's greatest films.

More...

City Of Women

In City Of Women, great Italian director Federico Fellini makes no secret of his obsession with women.

This is the first of many allusions marking City Of Women as another great work from the master director

More...

Paranormal Activity 2

The film stays close to what made the first one such a phenomenal word-of-mouth hit. That may make it infinitely more familiar than its predecessor, but it is still an engrossing and creepy experience superior to most horror movies.

More...

Fudoh – the New Generation

Stemming from a long line of Japanese pop culture that revels in extremes; sex and violence are unashamedly given full frontal treatment and as such it would be a mistake to take Fudoh too seriously. It’s by no means artful filmmaking, with bad writing, cliched moments, stilted acting and some cheesy ideas posing as adroit.

More...

In Bob We Trust

Feisty, spirited, with an insightful wit and compelling backstory, Father Bob has long sided with those pushed out of society.

Killer Klowns From Outer Space

If you’re a fan of b-grade horror films, and have yet to see ‘Killer Klowns From Outer Space’, then now is the perfect time to acquaint yourself with this undisputed classic cult masterpiece. In other words, this deluxe re-release really is a must have.

More...

Charlie & Boots

There’s nothing to really dislike about Charlie & Boots but there’s not much to embrace either. The humour is inoffensive and mostly well meaning but it generates the occasional chuckle rather than laughter.

More...

King Arthur - Director's Cut

This is a rollicking tale full of action and exciting, well orchestrated battles. Director Antoine Fuqua retains the essence of the legend.

More...

Hitler's Holocaust

More...

Crude: The Incredible Journey Of Oil

The gratifying thing is that Dr Smith doesn't paint the bleakest picture. It's a more balanced view covering the best and worst case scenarios.

More...

Winnie The Pooh: Springtime With Roo

A great kids flick with valuable lessons and great interactive features too.

More...

Lovewrecked

Bynes puts in an A effort, yet only receives C results. She's the reason the film gets the small handful of chuckles it can muster, and she's the feeble spark of electricity in the romantic comedy department.

More...

Felicity

From her forbidden pleasures at an all-girl school in the countryside to wanton hungers in the exotic underground of Hong Kong, the budding Felicity finds herself delighted by her deflowering and obviously excited in the sheer ecstasy of encountering the sexual pleasure.

More...

The Navigator

The beautiful photography and haunting soundtrack are clear standouts to what is a sometimes confusing and overly ambitious story. One of the only clues lies within the shift from black and white to color.

More...

Jag: The Complete First Season

This is an enjoyable first season for JAG, a show that developed a very solid audience foundation and kept making solid episodes for their broad niche audience for 10 years. That should be classified as a success.

More...

The Box

As The Box moves forward, you can almost sense the pieces of the puzzle slowly-but-surely landing softly into their positions, and with each scene, more seems to make sense. Writer/director Richard Kelly weaves a web of intrigue and suspense,…

This is the definitive account of the life and times of one of the UK’s best loved sporting icons.

More...

Nora

…Nora’ is very much a period piece and provides an accurate representation of the era in which it is set, and comments significantly on the religious, cultural and moralistic issues of the time.

More...

The Football Factory

The fast-cutting brutal footage, mixed with the slow-paced emotional scenes, makes the controversial film a fascinating account of hooliganism. The different stories about their experiences and lives is told to try and make viewers partially understand the frighteningly real reason behind their actions.

More...

Cuban Fury

It's a funny and energetic new romantic comedy that combines the comedic talents of Nick Frost, Rashida Jones and Chris O'Dowd and gives us a reason to get off the couch and dance!

More...

The Nest

There is little doubt that “The Nest” is a terrific action picture. There's no real characterisation to find, but that's no big mystery,

More...

Game Recognise Game

The Game emerges as a relatively positive person who is interested in charity and growing through life's hardships.

More...

Wimbledon

The DVD quality is superb and the surround channels which deserve the most praise. The effects are just right and whenever Peter is on court there's plenty of effects in all of the channels…

The Skin I Live In (La piel que habito)

The Skin I Live In is certainly one of the most twisted films to hit the cinemas this year. This is a film that you will remember for a long, long time to come. The Skin I Live In is destined to not only become a cult classic but may be regarded as one of the best thrillers ever made.

More...

X-Men: Wolverine's Story

More...

Red Mist

…for the most part it has the elements of an original plot that wasn't exactly executed the right way. It's style is unique and interesting, and it does have some good horrific moments.

More...

The Village

Staple M. Night Shyamalan with the almost too obvious Hitchcock homage, gets there (wherever the hell that is) in his own sweet time. However The Village isn’t so much about the final destination, which is a tad drawn out (yes, yes, we get that you’re clever), but more enjoyable is the journey and beautiful rich imagery and characters along the way.

More...

36 Quai des Orfèvres

The whole movie explores constant splits between loyalty and avenging, family and work, moral and evil and of these, the latter is intertwined the most. This is a theme that has been heavily explored in Hollywood crime movies. Yet, this version, a classy French offering on it, is free of generic characteristics of American crime films.

More...

The Sheltering Sky (2-disc pack)

This is Bernardo Bertolucci’s marvellous adaptation of the best-selling Paul Bowles novel…

More...

Bangkok Dangerous

While Bangkok Dangerous has its moments, little flashes of technical verve that speak to the imagination, they're not enough to make you want to keep watching. There's no denying that the Pangs can engage the mind's eye, but here it's only for a few seconds at a time. If you're feeling adventurous, the original sounds like a much safer bet.

More...

The Lost Bladesman

This combination of talents makes the film one of the big attractions of the Chinese film year, but it's only a partial success.

More...

2000 Maniacs

It’s quite a watchable film, with increased production values allowing a coherent storyline and comes across as something that those, who feast themselves on gore and horror, would appreciate even more.

More...

More...

Raising Helen

A fun-filled movie treat featuring several good acting performances, notably Joan Cusack, John Corbett, and Helen Mirren (Calendar Girls). Generally speaking though, the story is a good entertaining adventure filled with warmth, romance and laughter.

More...

Degrassi High: School's Out

‘School’s Out’ is jam packed with issues of teenage sex, teenage pregnancy, abortions, drink driving, young marriage, monogamy and virginity.

More...

Unleashed

This film definitely has fast and furious action (and superb sequences of it as well). It is a drama, one that switches in tone twice before ending in a basic revenge tale.

More...

Monkey Vol.16

Volume 16 contains three episodes never before seen on Australian television, and provides the viewer with a healthy serving of Monkey at its best.

More...

More...

Bereavement

What is great about this prequel is that it really fits well with its predecessor “Malevolence” and answers a lot of unanswered questions to the mystery of the masked serial killer Martin. This film is definitely not for the squeamish due to some really intense scenes.

More...

Varietease

Bettie Page was America's pin-up queen and Varietease shows how she ignited the world and gained cult popularity.

2008 Video Playmate Calendar follows a similar formula to the previous ventures, showing a short clip of the ladies in scantily clad lingerie and bouncing around happily…

More...

Cafe De Flore

At times Café De Flore is a sensational movie but it is dangerously let my an ending that makes its audience stretch their imagination a little too far. That may be okay in the realm of sci-fi but not in drama. In the end Café De Flore becomes a hit and miss affair.

More...

Walt Disney Treasures – Mickey In Living Colour

This celebrates Mickey Mouse’s career in colour cartoons with 26 original shorts released between 1935 and 1938. Therefore, fans will relish this priceless collection that chronicles Mickey’s first steps out of the world of black and white, ushering in a new era of animation.

More...

L'Innocente

This is one of the more beautiful films Italy had produced in the 1970s. It also marked Luchino Visconti's final film and showcased terrific acting performances. L'Innocente presents the grandeur of 18th century Italian aristocracy, with class structure and sexual double standards.

More...

Deadly Weapons

The direction is very average and the movie, as a whole, looks a mess… and so is Morgan. There is one scene when we get a close shot of her teeth… and they're black with decay.

More...

Apollo 11

It was a gripping and exciting time back in July 1969 when three American astronauts, Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins made history on the Apollo 11 mission.

More...

Hyper Street Racing Type-B

It doesn’t try to investigate the culture of street racing in any serious way, focusing instead on short-lived snippets of car after car crashing and smoking like a drunken bookie.

More...

Walesa: Man Of Hope

Now, the 87 year-old brings us Walesa. Man of Hope, which blends archive footage and dramatic reconstruction to compelling effect in producing a fitting tribute to a man who helped change the destiny of Europe.

Tim Minchin So Live

So Live, recorded in 2006 at the Sydney Opera House, is an amusing and eccentric showcase of Minchin’s wares.

More...

Teaserama

Bettie Page was the top pin-up Queen of the 50's, with her image now even more popular than ever. She was known for her distinctive hair style and figure when she became the most photographed pin up of her generation.
Teaserama was considered as the holy grail of girlie flicks.

More...

Pokemon Heroes

There are some pieces to this movie that might be difficult to understand or digest. You probably need to think like a child. It was at least a story and didn’t just lead-up to a Pokémon grudge match in an arena.

More...

Space-Thing

Friedman is well-known in the field of exploitation cinema and this movie is a perfect example of his skills, as Space-Thing contains all the elements we expect from such a style.

More...

Minder Series 5

It is hard to say whether it is the catchy theme tune, cockney humour or brilliant acting abilities and hilarious shenanigans of Dennis Waterman and George Cole that make the classic British television show Minder one of the most successful shows ever.

More...

Soundtrack To War

The Iraqi people themselves are not well represented in this film, it almost exclusively deals with the US forces in Iraq. There are only a couple of segments dealing with Iraqi musicians, and the odd shot of traumatised civilians. It would have been good to see a bit more of the Iraqi reaction to these foreign troops who have invaded and occupied their country, and whose tanks, humvees and roadblocks are the most obvious signs of the fact Iraq is not a sovereign nation.

More...

Monkey Volume 17

It was great to turn on the DVD and see some Monkey Magic for the first time in about 15 years. The great theme song! The stone egg! The lightning! Monkey bursts out! Sandy! Pigsy! Tripitaka! Monkey whistling up his magic cloud! It had been far too long.

More...

Reign Of Assassins

Directed by legendary filmmaker, John Woo and the talented Chao Bin-Su, the film is a stylish ‘swords and sandals’ adventure that revisits the taut, over the top action style for which Woo is renowned.

More...

More...

Raining Stones

Raining Stones is a film about the slow, grinding horror of poverty, the million petty humiliations and indignities of being poor.

More...

Revenge For Jolly

I know that this film was trying really hard to be a fast paced dark comedy with gunplay but instead it turned out to be a fast paced let down with lots of senseless killing and no real meat to the story.

More...

Blood Feast

It is part of the Blood trilogy of films from director Herschell Gordon Lewis. It set the scene for many others to follow in these bloody footsteps.

More...

Get Rich Or Die Tryin'

It's somewhat of a rags-to-riches story, yet it isn't overly endowed with 50 Cent's music. But it tells of the blossoming of the character; the rapper that grew to what he is today.

More...

Van Wilder: The Rise Of Taj

Well, if you liked the first Van Wilder with crazy personalities and laughs, then I suggest you watch Van Wilder “ The Rise of Taj”.

More...

Team America, World Police

There is a lot of tasteless humour here. It's okay in moderation but in this case it's so repetitive that it starts to lose its effect.

More...

The Battle of Algiers

The Battle Of Algiers is a remarkable and powerful movie. It was filmed in 1965 and described the tumultuous events of only a few years earlier which led to the French quitting their colony of Algeria.

More...

Manufacturing Consent - Noam Chomsky and the Media

This over-long 1992 documentary is quite a slog, but it is definitely of interest. It is essentially a biography of the famous US linguist-cum-dissident Noam Chomsky, with a focus on his activism and ideas on social control, the media, militarism, and related issues.

More...

The Bill: Seasons 1-3

As one of the longest longing and most-successful police shows ever made, it is not hard to see why this is so. It was unique and ground-breaking in its approach to crime drama.

More...

George W. Bushisms

Hosted by the annoyingly sarcastic and lacklustre Brian Unger, Bushisms presents itself as a children’s program complete with translators, dictionary meanings, theatre pieces, animations and music segments. Derived from a series of novels, at barely sixty minutes, it becomes apparent that there is a shortage of content…

More...

Shot Caller

Nikolaj Costner-Waldau delivers his best performance to date. “Jaimie of the Thrones” here aspired to the throne in both fictional incarnations. Earlier as successful stock broker, later as prisoner struggling to position himself in the harsh and unforgiving system.

More...
Darkest Hour

Rather than span the course or Churchill’s accomplished life, screenwriter Anthony McCarten was wise to narrow it down to the span of just one month. The best biopics are the ones that do just this: find a moment in their life and focus on that. This is what makes Darkest Hour work so well…

More...
All The Money In the World

Scott did the unthinkable with the film. How other filmmakers will follow suit in similar instances remains to be seen. It's a rare peek into the generational nuances of a family that's well worth a look.
