Spider-Man 3

2-Disc Special Edition

£3.00BuyMenu

The Marvel comics hero returns for more high-flying fun in this third instalment in the series. Peter Parker (Tobey Maguire) is up to his usual Spidey tricks, attending university classes as an awkward geek, and saving New York City from various villains. But Spider-Man's biggest battle is perhaps within himself, when he is taken over by meteorite ooze--a substance that gives him great power, but also turns him into a vengeful, selfish person. Spidey must also contend with his onetime friend, Harry (James Franco), who has taken up where his father, the Green Goblin, left off. The special effects are astounding, but Raimi makes sure the film isn't all action and no talk--he makes Peter's struggle a human one, and one that we can all relate to, regardless of our web-spinning ability.

Stuart Little 2

 

£1.20BuyMenu

A combination of modern technology and more traditional filmmaking, Stuart Little 2 is, like its predecessor, a beautifully innocent children's movie. While the likes of Shrek and Monster's, Inc. have taken human actors visually out of the picture, Stuart Little 2 is more old-fashioned in its approach and themes: the tale of a big-hearted little mouse is familiar to anyone raised on classic Disney. For those who haven't seen the first film a fairly hefty suspension of belief is required, but this is an engaging tale. It may lack the cultural suss of some of its competitors, but Stuart Little 2 is hugely recommended for those wishing to be entertained, young and old alike.

Syriana

 

£1.80BuyMenu

Syriana is set against the world of global oil cartels. An attempt to portray the vast political, business, social, and personal implications of a societal addiction to oil. A major merger between two global oil companies reveals ethical dilemmas for the lawyer charged with making the deal (Jeffrey Wright), and major global implications beyond the obvious; a CIA operative (George Clooney) discovers the truth about his work, and the people he works for. It is a film that deserves to be taken seriously. A fast-paced, heart-pounding, relentless film, Syriana was inspired by the true story of former CIA agent Robert Baer, told in his book See No Evil.

White Noise

 

£1.50BuyMenu

In the 1920s, Thomas Edison speculated that a device would be created which would allow humans to conduct conversations with the dead. Architect Jonathan Rivers (Michael Keaton) has little time to mourn the passing of his wife Anna (Chandra West) when he starts receiving signals from her. From the garbled dialogue Rivers receives, he deduces that Anna is sending him to save the lives of people who are about to die. However, meddling with messages from the dead leads into a world of trouble, producing some startlingly anxious moments, and a spine-chilling consequences.

The Wicker Man

 

£1.50BuyMenu

This 2006 remake veers away from the 1973 film in several key ways. Nicholas Cage as Edward Malus, a policeman thrust into some dangerous detective work by a series of strange events that begin with a horrific car crash. This incident leaves the cop haunted, with images of the accident replaying in his heavily medicated mind. Edward's hiatus from work is interrupted when he receives a mysterious letter from his ex-fiance, pleading with him to help find her missing daughter, Rowan. Against his better judgment, Edward travels to the remote, privately owned island of Summerisle, home to a close-knit, secretive community with a clear dislike for outsiders. Considering Edward an intruder, the Sisters of Summerisle offer little information regarding the missing girl.

Zathura

 

£1.50BuyMenu

Zathura, a smart and stylish kid's adventure, launches into action when Danny (Jonah Bobo) twists the key of a dusty science fiction game -- wrenches Danny's house into orbit around a distant ringed planet, bringing Danny's brother Walter (Josh Hutcherson and sister Lisa (Kristen Stewart) along. Soon a defective robot, a rangy astronaut (Dax Shepard), and an alien spaceship enter the picture. Only by completing the game can the kids return their house to its proper space-time coordinates, but the game board falls into the hands of some nasty, carnivorous lizards. Zathura has some obligatory emotional conflict and resolution between the two brothers. What makes Zathura a delight is the wonderful design, the skillful escalation of disasters.
