  • Oliver [1968] Oliver | DVD | (11/12/2000) from £4.19  |  Saving you £15.80 (79.00%)  |  RRP £19.99

    Film buffs and critics can argue until their faces turn blue about whether this lavish Dickensian musical deserved the Academy Award for Best Picture of 1968, but the movie speaks for itself on grandly entertaining terms. Adapted from Dickens's classic novel, it's one of the most dramatically involving and artistically impressive musicals of the 1960s, directed by Carol Reed with a delightful enthusiasm that would surely have impressed Dickens himself. Mark Lester plays the waifish orphan Oliver Twist, who is befriended by the pick-pocketing Artful Dodger (Jack Wild) and recruited into the gang of boy thieves led by Fagin (played to perfection by Ron Moody). The villainous Bill Sikes (Oliver Reed) casts his long shadow over Oliver and his friends, but the young orphan is still able to find loving care in the most desperate of circumstances. Full of memorable melodies and splendid lyrics, Oliver! is a timeless film, prompting even hard-to-please critic Pauline Kael to call it "a superb demonstration of intelligent craftsmanship," and to further observe that "it's as if the movie set out to be a tribute to Dickens and his melodramatic art as well as to tell the story of Oliver Twist". --Jeff Shannon, Amazon.com

  • Down Among The Z Men [1952] Down Among The Z Men | DVD | (24/06/2002) from £5.49  |  Saving you £10.50 (65.70%)  |  RRP £15.99

    Although they made their name in the medium of radio, the legendary Goons also made brief forays into the world of television and, with Down Among the Z Men, film. It captures the team at a very early stage in their career, with Michael Bentine still in the fold, and with their unique, anarchic brand of humour still in its infancy. Sadly, the style and feel of the film does little to suit their comedy style. While radio offered an opportunity for their imaginations to run riot, here the four find themselves tied to a few stock characters, most of whom would make a more animated appearances later in their career. The plot--with its tale of eccentric professors and evil spies--sees a series of musical numbers and a variety performance crow barred into the proceedings. Those who wish to add to an already existing Goons collection may want to consider this, but anyone wondering what all the fuss is about should head straight for the many radio collections available and hear the sound of true genius at work. On The DVD: Down Among the Z Men offers little to recommend, with the DVD lacking in any extras whatsoever. Being taken from an original fifties print, the black and white picture is of reasonable quality yet cannot help but look extremely dated. At best it is the sort of curio that would pass time on a Sunday afternoon but it is hard to consider this a particularly essential DVD release. –-Phil Udell

  • The Bed Sitting Room [DVD] [1969] The Bed Sitting Room | DVD | (25/05/2009) from £9.99  |  Saving you £0.91 (5.10%)  |  RRP £17.99

    Directed by Richard Lester (A Hard Day's Night Superman II & III The Four Musketeers Robin and Marian The Knack) The Bed Sitting Room is based on a play by Spike Milligan and John Antrobus. Set in a post-apocalyptic London nine months after World War III (the Nuclear Misunderstanding) which lasted two minutes and twenty eight seconds - including the signing of the peace treaty. Nucelar fallout is producing strange mutations in people; the title refers to the character Lord Fortnum who finds himself transforming into a bed sitting room. The plot concerns the fate of the first child to be born after the war. The film can be compared to Milligan's work with The Goons but with a savage cynical and more surreal edge. This was probably the first time that Milligan let his creative dark side out into the light. The bizarre set design has been an influence on filmmakers such as Terry Gilliam and Jeunet and Caro (Delicatessen). The cast list includes the cream of British comedic and acting talent from the late 1960's: Rita Tushingham Ralph Richardson Peter Cook Harry Secombe Dudley Moore Spike Milligan Michael Horden Roy Kinnear Arthur Lowe Dandy Nichols and Marty Feldman. Lots of people talk about 'lost classics' but The Bed Sitting Room is a film that truly deserves that description. It was not particularly well received at the box office but that may be due to the profound strangeness of the film. However it's reputation has grown over the years and VHS copies taped from a BBC broadcast 25 years ago have been selling for ridiculous prices online. It beggars belief that such a startling piece of British cinema has remained in the vaults for so long. Over an hour of extras will include interviews from 1967 with Richard Lester Spike Milligan and Peter Cook.
