  • Still Crazy [1998] Still Crazy | DVD | (11/10/1999) from £4.75  |  Saving you £8.24 (63.40%)  |  RRP £12.99

    This gently satirical British comedy chronicles the quixotic reunion of a late, arguably not-so-great and unlamented 70s rock band, Strange Fruit, with a winning mix of humour and poignancy. The "Fruits", as the survivors call themselves without irony, had disbanded after the tragic loss of one member, the mysterious disappearance of another and the aftershocks of internal rivalries, but 20 years later they warily reassemble for a Dutch club tour, a warm-up for a proposed festival appearance. Between that seemingly hare-brained proposal and the fateful festival, director Brian Gibson, working from a sharp script by Dick Clement and Ian LaFrenais, captures the absurdities of middle-aged rockers trying to recapture that lost cockiness.Breathing life into the band is a terrific cast, including Stephen Rea, Jimmy Nail, Timothy Spall and Bill Nighy, each managing to juggle deft archetype with believable character traits: Spall's cheerfully crass, flatulent drummer and Nighy's preening, slow-witted lead singer exemplify the approach, grabbing chuckles yet making you actually care about them. Equally impressive is Billy Connolly as the wily roadie, Hughie, at once pragmatic and devoted to his charges. All are well-served by production details and script points that get the group's lost world of late 60s and early 70s rock exactly right, from costuming and stage moves to the long-forgotten bands they name-check--Blodwyn Pig, anybody?The band's music likewise benefits from inspired insiders, cowriters Mick Jones (Spooky Tooth, Foreigner) and Chris Difford (Squeeze), who hit a nifty combination of bombast (for the silly scenes) and earnestness. When Gibson and his cast risk the story's amiable glow on a darker, more dramatic final act, the music rises to the challenge and the whole project, like its fictional subject, achieves an unexpectedly touching victory. --Sam Sutherland

  • The Crying Game (DVD + Blu-ray) The Crying Game (DVD + Blu-ray) | Blu Ray | (20/02/2017) from £9.49  |  Saving you £N/A (N/A%)  |  RRP £N/A

    The Crying Game offers a rare and precious movie experience. The film is an unclassifiable original that surprises, intrigues, confounds, and delights you with its freshness, humor, and honesty from beginning to end. It starts as a psychological thriller, as IRA foot soldier Fergus (the incomparable Stephen Rea) kidnaps a British soldier (Forest Whitaker) and waits for the news that will determine whether he executes his victim or sets him free. As the night wears on, a peculiar bond begins to form between the two men. Later, the movie shifts tone and morphs into something of a romantic comedy as Fergus unexpectedly becomes involved with the soldier's girlfriend Dil (Jaye Davidson) and discovers more about himself, and human nature in general, than he ever dreamed possible. Like Spielberg's E.T. , The Crying Game was supposed to be director Neil Jordan's "little, personal movie," the one he just had to make, even though no studio was willing to give him money because the story was so unusual. Instead, it became a surprise popular sensation, thanks in part to Miramax's cleverly provocative campaign playing up the hush-hush nature of the movie's big secret. The performances (including Miranda Richardson as one of Fergus's IRA colleagues) are subtly shaded, and the writing and direction are tantalizingly rich and suggestive; you're always trying to figure out the characters' true motives and feelings--even when they themselves are fully aware of their own motives and feelings. The Crying Game is a wise, witty, wondrous treasure of a movie. Director Jordan's credits include Mona Lisa, Interview with the Vampire, Michael Collins, and The Butcher Boy. --Jim Emerson

  • The Crying Game [1992] The Crying Game | DVD | (16/09/2002) from £5.24  |  Saving you £10.75 (67.20%)  |  RRP £15.99

    An IRA film with a difference, Neil Jordan's The Crying Game takes the Anglo-Irish conflict as the starting point for a thoughtful, often poignant and sometimes humorous examination of gender and identity. Stephen Rea is the IRA volunteer who befriends a kidnapped British soldier (the gauche but likeable Forest Whitaker), then takes the questions of loyalty and instinct (the "frog and scorpion" fable) with him to London, where he falls for the dead man's girlfriend (the appealing Jaye Davidson). Love and terrorism are fused in a violent and suspenseful denouement, where truth manifests itself in an unexpected yet meaningful way. Miranda Richardson and Adrian Dunbar are persuasive as the IRA agents, and there are excellent cameos from Jim Broadbent as an East End barman and Tony Slattery as a property shark, all making the most of Jordan's stylish, Academy Award-winning script. Anne (Art of Noise) Dudley contributes a moodily atmospheric score, with three versions of "When a Man Loves a Woman" to point up the gender issue. On the DVD: The Crying Game comes to disc with a widescreen picture that reproduces adequately for an early 90s film. The soundtrack, though, has real presence. There are subtitles in English and Russian(!), though the theatrical trailer is hardly a major bonus. An interview or a commentary with Jordan, discussing the motivation behind the project, would really have benefited a film which cuts across genres so successfully as this. --Richard Whitehouse

  • The Musketeer [2002] The Musketeer | DVD | (10/03/2003) from £2.84  |  Saving you £9.61 (64.10%)  |  RRP £14.99

    On paper Peter Hyams' The Musketeer seems like a very good idea--take the traditional material of reliable swashbucklers and pep it up with a lot of Hong Kong wirework and martial arts--and yet somehow the result is not entirely satisfactory. Part of the trouble is that the script takes The Three Musketeers and strips out much of what has made Dumas' book--and earlier films based on it--unsinkable as a audience favourite. Also part of the trouble is that Justin Chambers' D'Artagnan is pretty, and jumps around well, but lacks the charisma to be a future heroic Marshal of France. Tim Roth plays the one-eyed villain Febre like Alan Rickman on automatic pilot; Stephen Rea's Cardinal Richelieu is meant to be impassive but comes across as bored. Of the famous guest stars, only Catherine Deneuve as an infinitely resourceful Queen of France really gets into the spirit of things. There are likable scenes here, and one or two memorable stunts--like a swordfight in a room full of collapsing ladders--but this Musketeer comes way down in the list of Dumas adaptations, far behind Douglas Fairbanks and the 1970s Dick Lester films. On the DVD: The Musketeer on disc includes not especially illuminating documentaries on the stunts and on the casting of Justin Chambers, as well as text files on the production notes and the filmographies of director and cast. It is presented with a widescreen anamorphic visual aspect ratio of 2.35:1 and has the options of Dolby 5.1 sound in English and French. --Roz Kaveney

  • DCI Banks - Series 3 [DVD] [2015] DCI Banks - Series 3 | DVD | (30/03/2015) from £8.29  |  Saving you £11.70 (58.50%)  |  RRP £19.99

  • Babylon 5 : In The Beginning [1994] Babylon 5 : In The Beginning | DVD | (08/04/2002) from £11.90  |  Saving you £8.09 (40.50%)  |  RRP £19.99

    In the gap between seasons four and five of Babylon 5, fans suffering withdrawal symptoms were sated by this first TV movie. As a prequel to the series' timeline, creator J. Michael Straczynski had an awful lot of continuity to consider. Amazingly, there's only one inconsistency throughout (a matter of who met whom and when), making this an essential part of the overall storyline. The tale is told cleverly from the future as the remembrances of Londo (Peter Jurasik), who is now Emperor of a dying Centauri homeworld. He looks back at the beginnings of the Earth-Minbari war and links together many clues strewn throughout the shows' early years. We see exactly how Delenn contributed to the first blows, the death of dignitary Dukhat, and most importantly what really happened to Sinclair (Michael O'Hare) at the Battle of the Line. The FX showcased by the battle are genuinely spectacular, but overshadowed by the make-up department which had the thankless task of making everyone look younger. Their best success is on an uncredited Claudia Christian who appears as an 18-year-old Susan Ivanova dealing with the death of her brother. Being a prequel there's little in the way of a surprise finale, but there's plenty of intrigue along the way. --Paul Tonks
