Pal Joey | DVD | (18/08/2003)
from £14.99 | Saving you £N/A (N/A%) | RRP
First born in the pages of The New Yorker, then translated into a hit Rodgers and Hart Broadway musical, the title character of Pal Joey had undergone quite a transformation by the time he hit the movies in 1957. He was a singer, rather than a dancer, but more importantly he'd had his rough edges sweetly softened; the callous heel dreamed up by novelist John O'Hara was more of a naughty scamp in the film version. However, Pal Joey remains delightfully watchable for two very good reasons: a terrific song score and a surplus of glittering star power. Frank Sinatra, at the zenith of his cocky, world-on-a-string popularity, glides through the film with breezy nonchalance, romancing showgirl Kim Novak (Columbia Pictures' new sex symbol) and wealthy widow Rita Hayworth (Columbia Pictures' former sex symbol). The film also benefits from location shooting in San Francisco, caught in the moonlight-and-supper-club glow of the late 50s. Sinatra does beautifully with the Rodgers and Hart classics "I Didn't Know What Time It Was" and "I Could Write a Book" and his performance of "The Lady Is a Tramp" (evocatively shot by director George Sidney) is flat-out genius. Sinatra's ease with hep-cat lingo nearly outdoes Bing Crosby at his best, and included in the DVD is a trailer in which Sinatra instructs the audience in "Joey's Jargon", a collection of hip slang words such as "gasser" and "mouse." If not one of Sinatra's very best movies, Pal Joey is nevertheless a classy vehicle that fits like a glove. --Robert Horton

Never too Young to Rock - Starring Mud, The Glitter Band and The Rubettes (Official Release) | DVD | (08/10/2012)
from £10.99 | Saving you £4.00 (26.70%) | RRP
Available for the first time on DVD, the zany, madcap Never Too Young To Rock was made at the high point of glam rock in 1975. It offers a unique opportunity to experience the driving, feelgood sounds of the era's top pop combos in their pomp. From the infectious choruses of Mud's 'Tiger Feet' and 'The Cat Crept In', through the catchy doo-wop of The Rubettes, to percussive anthems like The Glitter Band's 'Angel Face', this film provides aural nostalgia at its most intense. The pleasures of this glittery little time capsule don't end with the songs, though: just check out the threads on all those young dudes - the revival of the scarlet, bell-bottomed cat suit with sparkly epaulettes must surely be just round the corner. 'Bless my soul, it's rock and roll'!
John Travolta - Saturday Night Fever | Blu Ray | (11/05/2009)
from £7.99 | Saving you £12.00 (60.00%) | RRP
John Travolta gives a sensual and intelligent performance as the troubled Tony Manero - Brooklyn paint store clerk by day and undisputed king of the dance floor by night. Every Saturday Tony puts on his wide collared shirt flared trousers and platform shoes and heads out to the only place where he's seen as a god rather than some young punk. But in the darkness away from from the strobe lights and glitter ball is a tragic story of disillusionment violence and heartbreak. Without a doubt Travolta's performance made him a Hollywood legend but 'Saturday Night Fever' is more than just a movie that defined the music and fashion of a generation. It's a powerful and provocative urban tragedy that carries as much significance today as it did in 1977.
Cirque Du Soleil - Dralion | DVD | (28/01/2002)
from £6.29 | Saving you £13.63 (68.20%) | RRP
The work of the Canadian circus troupe Cirque Du Soleil, Dralion is a show which has toured worldwide. It features elements of Chinese circus tradition interspersed with the troupe's own pan-cultural sense of stage spectacle. It's a combination of music, dance, clowning and acrobatics lavishly bathed in dry ice, strobe lights and a colourful array of oriental finery, elaborate costumes and props. Here you'l find Chinese women finding the strength from somewhere in their tiny bodies to balance by their hands atop 10-foot poles which are wheeled around gracefully; and young boys tumbling rapidly through revolving golden hoops; and bronzed dancers swinging through the air in balletic arcs from lengths of blue ribbon. What one could do without, though, is the She-Goddess' New Age babble throughout the proceedings, as well as the soundtrack, which is a queasy fusion of world music marinated in bass. There's also an over-indulgence of costume and choreography, presumably the work of the "avant garde" Cirque Du Soleil, though much here is distinctly apres-garde, reminding the viewer irresistibly of the musical extravaganza that was the daily centrepiece of the ill-fated Millennium Dome. All of this at times smothers and distracts from the impressive physical feats of the Chinese performers. Still, for the three million people who have witnessed this show worldwide this will certainly provide a worthy memento.On the DVD: a number of extra features include a featurette about the five-month deadline the troupe had to meet in putting together the show, splendid for those who thrill to the spectacle of tents being erected and dancers being winched carefully into the rafters of giant hangars. There's also a facility for viewing the performances from different angles. The show is presented in 1.78:1 aspect ratio, and is generally pristine in both colour and definition. --David Stubbs
Oh Calcutta! | DVD | (03/11/2008)
from £5.39 | Saving you £14.60 (73.00%) | RRP
The World's Longest Running Erotic Stage Musical! Written by luminaries including John Lennon Sam Shepard and Samuel Beckett this adult musical matched the magic of Broadway with the exhilaration of a peep show over a rock score performed by a live band. Debuting in 1969 and running for a record 17 years the notoriously erotic stage musical Oh! Calcutta! playfully challenged taboos by representing the sexual revolution in a series of uproarious skits dance and naughty musical numbers performed (mostly) in the nude. From an elaborately-concocted scene in which a crafty virgin gets the upper hand on her seducer to a hilarious rendition of awkward first-time swingers Oh! Calcutta! gleefully runs roughshod over prudish no-no's while never taking sex too seriously. Directed by British theatre critic Kenneth Tynan Oh! Calcutta! is equal parts hubris and hilarity acting out on stage what usually never leaves the bedroom to side-splitting and blush-worthy effect.

Mamma Mia! | Blu Ray | (24/11/2008)
from £3.99 | Saving you £1.01 (20.20%) | RRP
The delirious sight of Meryl Streep leading a river of multigenerational women singing "Dancing Queen" is one of the high points of Mamma Mia!, the musical built around the songs of the hugely popular pop group ABBA. The plot sets in motion when Sophie (Amanda Seyfried, Mean Girls), daughter of Donna (Streep), sends a letter to three men, inviting them to her wedding--because after reading her mother's diary, she suspects that one of them is her father. When all three arrive at the Greek island where Donna runs a hotel, Donna flips out and finds that passions she thought she'd laid aside are coming back to life. But let's face it, the plot is not the point--it's a ridiculous contrivance that provides an excuse for the characters to sing the massive hits of ABBA. Regrettably, first-time film director Phyllida Lloyd (who directed the original stage production) has drawn over-the-top performances from everyone involved, even Streep; every production number hammers its exuberance into your eyeballs. Which is too bad, because Mamma Mia! is a rarity: A middle-aged love story. The kids start things off, but the story is really about Streep and the three guys (former James Bond Pierce Brosnan, former Mr. Darcy Colin Firth, and Swedish star Stellan Skarsgard), as well as Donna's best friends (Christine Baranski, best known from the TV show Cybill, and Julie Walters, Calendar Girls). It's a romantic comedy aimed at the people who were around when all these songs were new, and that's an age group Hollywood largely ignores. For that alone, Mamma Mia! deserves to find an audience. --Bret Fetzer
