  • Jaws 2 [1978] Jaws 2 | DVD | (06/04/2009) from £3.00  |  Saving you £6.99 (70.00%)  |  RRP £9.99

    Judged entirely on its own merits, Jaws 2 isn't a bad film. It even has some passably scary moments (Brody discovering a charred body in the waves; the swimming boy racing the shark back to his dinghy). But it's absolutely impossible to judge this movie on its own merits. Despite being given a great big Panavision camera to play with director Jeannot Szwarc can't hide his TV-movie origins, nor can the script, both of which spend far too long landlocked with the bickering inhabitants of Amity Island. Where the original film boldly set out to sea with Robert Shaw's Ahab-like Quint, in a misplaced desire to attract a teenage audience this movie dwells at interminable length on the courting rituals of the local youth; where Spielberg's original is a masterpiece of pacing and carefully timed tension-building, Jaws 2 sags terribly whenever the plastic shark swims out of sight. Roy Scheider comes off best, reprising his role as Chief Brody, while Lorraine Gary's role as his wife is expanded (she must be a glutton for punishment: she also starred in Jaws 4: The Revenge). Taken as a sequel Jaws 2 is inferior in every way; taken as an unassuming TV movie it's a respectable, workmanlike effort; but looking forward at what was to follow, it begins to look like a minor masterpiece. --Mark Walker

  • Rear Window [1954] Rear Window | DVD | (17/10/2005) from £5.00  |  Saving you £6.99 (58.30%)  |  RRP £11.99

    Like the Greenwich Village courtyard view from its titular portal, Alfred Hitchcock's classic Rear Window is both confined and multileveled: its story and visual perspective are dictated by its protagonist's imprisonment in his apartment, convalescing in a wheelchair, from which both he and the audience observe the lives of his neighbours. Cheerful voyeurism, as well as the behaviour glimpsed among the various tenants, affords a droll comic atmosphere that gradually darkens when he sees clues to what may be a murder. Photographer LB "Jeff" Jeffries (James Stewart) is, in fact, a voyeur by trade, a professional photographer sidelined by an accident while on assignment. His immersion in the human drama (and comedy) visible from his window is a by-product of boredom, underlined by the disapproval of his girlfriend, Lisa (Grace Kelly), and a wisecracking visiting nurse (Thelma Ritter). Yet when the invalid wife of Lars Thorwald (Raymond Burr) disappears, Jeff enlists the two women to help him to determine whether she's really left town, as Thorwald insists, or been murdered. Hitchcock scholar Donald Spoto convincingly argues that the crime at the centre of this mystery is the MacGuffin--a mere pretext--in a film that's more interested in the implications of Jeff's sentinel perspective. We actually learn more about the lives of the other neighbours (given generic names by Jeff, even as he's drawn into their lives) he, and we, watch undetected than we do the putative murderer and his victim. Jeff's evident fear of intimacy and commitment with the elegant, adoring Lisa provides the other vital thread to the script, one woven not only into the couple's own relationship, but reflected and even commented upon through the various neighbours' lives. At a minimum, Hitchcock's skill at making us accomplices to Jeff's spying, coupled with an ingenious escalation of suspense as the teasingly vague evidence coalesces into ominous proof, deliver a superb thriller spiked with droll humour, right up to its nail-biting, nightmarish climax. At deeper levels, however, Rear Window plumbs issues of moral responsibility and emotional honesty, while offering further proof (were any needed) of the director's brilliance as a visual storyteller. -- Sam Sutherland, Amazon.com

    In the high-stakes edge-of-your-seat thriller The Call a thin thread of survival separates a teenage kidnap victim from her only hope: a compassionate steady voice on the other end of a cell phone marshalling all the resources she can to find her. Veteran 911 Emergency Call Centre operator Jordan (Halle Berry) has the kind of job that's not for the faint of heart: navigating the public's distress in order to save lives. But when a young woman's frantic report of a prowler ends tragically Jordan is devastated. Reassessing her life Jordan wonders if perhaps she's experienced her last fraught-filled phone call. With a supportive cop (Morris Chestnut) for a boyfriend maybe it's time to step back enjoy life and teach others the ins and outs of her high-pressure profession. That lifeline to strangers isn't over yet though. When average American teenager Casey (Abigail Breslin) is abducted by a serial killer (Michael Eklund) she manages to place a 911 call from the trunk of the killer's car. Jordan leading a group of new recruits through the massive Call Center operation is in earshot of the call. It's an all-too familiar scenario for this experienced public servant but before long Casey's situation reveals itself as eerily shockingly familiar.

  • Inherent Vice [DVD] [2015] Inherent Vice | DVD | (08/06/2015) from £5.49  |  Saving you £14.50 (72.50%)  |  RRP £19.99

    “Inherent Vice ” an adaptation of Thomas Pynchon’s seventh and funniest novel is the seventh film written and directed by Paul Thomas Anderson—and the very first film adaptation ever of Pynchon’s legendarily inventive culturally kaleidoscopic work. A surf noir the story dives headlong into the smoky haze and neon afterglow of the American counterculture via a psychedelic spin on the classic detective yarn. When private eye Doc Sportello’s ex-old lady suddenly out of nowhere shows up with a story about her current billionaire land developer boyfriend whom she just happens to be in love with and a plot by his wife and her boyfriend to kidnap that billionaire and throw him in a loony bin…well easy for her to say. It’s the tail end of the psychedelic '60s and paranoia is running the day and Doc knows that “love” is another of those words going around at the moment like “trip” or “groovy ” that’s being way too overused—except this one usually leads to trouble. With a cast of characters that includes surfers hustlers dopers and rockers a murderous loan shark LAPD detectives a tenor sax player working undercover and a mysterious entity known as the Golden Fang which may only be a tax dodge set up by some dentists...it’s part California noir part hallucinogenic romp and an all-out cinematic homage to a Pynchonian world of far-out characters dead-on insights and deep yearning.

But this is the world of film noir a tough sour place where nothing quite goes as planned… For his third feature Stanley Kubrick adapted Lionel White’s Clean Break with a little help from hard-boiled specialist Jim Thompson (The Killer Inside Me) and in doing so created a heist movie classic one to rank alongside John Huston’s The Asphalt Jungle and Quentin Tarantino’s Reservoir Dogs. The robbery itself is one of cinema’s great set-pieces as taut a piece of filmmaking as you’ll ever find expertly controlled by Kubrick who called The Killing his “first mature work”. Starring Sterling Hayden (Johnny Guitar The Godfather) perennial fall guy Elisha Cook Jr (The Maltese Falcon The Big Sleep) and Marie Windsor (The Narrow Margin) as his duplicitous wife The Killing is quintessential film noir still as brutal thrilling and audacious as it was almost six decades ago.
