Inglourious Basterds: Directed by Quentin Tarantino and starring Brad Pitt. In Nazi-occupied France during World War II, a group of Jewish-American soldiers known as “The Basterds” are chosen specifically to spread fear throughout the Third Reich by scalping and brutally killing Nazis. The Basterds soon cross paths with a French-Jewish teenage girl who runs a movie theater in Paris which is targeted by the soldiers. Also on Blu-Ray.
MI-5: S1 BBC. In a world where the roles of the intelligence services and secret agents are being thrown into greater importance, MI-5 is a timely new drama from a first-class creative team and with a superb cast.
