Thanks to the kind folk over at Fabulous Films, we have 5 copies of G'ole on DVD signed by composer Rick Wakeman to give away over at our Facebook page!

The World Cup is one of the greatest shows on earth. Its about football: but its also about drama and dreams, passion and heartache, defeat and triumph. GOLE! captures the highly charged atmosphere of those few weeks in 1982, when the Worlds top 24 teams gathered to do battle in Spain. It brings together the best players of all, in the ultimate test. It shows their brilliance, their determination, their disgrace... Distilled into 100 minutes of all out excitement, with the powerful music of Rick Wakeman and stirring commentary by Sean Connery GOLE! is pure football magic...

REWIND AWARDS 2016 WINNERS!

Tuesday 3rd January 2017

It's time to announce the winners of our 2016 Awards! Thanks to all those that voted (twice as many as 2015) and congratulations to all those who won, and those who have received an honourable mention. 2016 has been a great year for home entertainment. May 2017 also flourish!

Best Independent British Distributor - Winning for the second year on the trot is Arrow Films who have had a huge year, especially with all the fine box sets they have released in both their Video and Academy ranges. Honourable mentions go to 88 Films and Eureka.

Best Independent American Distributor - A close contest between three companies, but like the UK category, for the second year running, Shout Factory is victorious. Just behind them were Vinegar Syndrome and Criterion.

Best Rest of World Distributor - Finally, we come to a new king on the throne, with French company Carlotta just edging Australian outfit Umbrella Entertainment to the crown. Both of these companies have had huge years, with Umbrella in particular really stepping up their game on previous years.

Best Newcomer - To be brutally honest, this one wasn't even a competition with over 95% of the votes going to the latest company to come from the UK, Powerhouse Films. You only need to see our reviews of their titles to see why they are deserving of this annihilation of all in their path.

Best Major Studio - This was pretty evenly contested, but by a single vote, MGM wins this award despite no longer releasing their titles themselves. One of our voters said it the best; MGM should win for having the brains to license their titles to companies that will show them the love they deserve.

Best American Release - Another closely fought contest, though in this instance the two releases in the fight both came from Criterion. The eventual winner was One Eyed Jacks, just beating out Lone Wolf and Cub.

Best UK Release - This years winner was one of the most critically acclaimed releases ever, Dissent and Disruption: Alan Clarke at the BBC, from the ever reliable BFI. The only other release within touching distance was Donnie Darko from Arrow Films.

Best Rest of World Release - This is always a tough category, with so many champion releases available around the world, but the clear winner for 2016 was Night of the Living Dead from Umbrella Entertainment.

Best/Worst Retailer - For the second year running, Amazon takes the best retailer award, although in a strange coincidence, were only three votes from also winning the worst. However, Zavvi takes that honour.
