  • The Hannibal Lecter Trilogy -- The Silence of the Lambs / Hannibal / Red Dragon [2002]The Hannibal Lecter Trilogy -- The Silence of the Lambs / Hannibal / Red Dragon | DVD | (19/05/2003) from £17.94   |  Saving you £22.05 (55.10%)   |  RRP £39.99

    Based on Thomas Harris's novel, Jonathan Demme's terrifying adaptation of Silence of the Lambs contains only a couple of genuinely shocking moments (one involving an autopsy, the other a prison break). The rest of the film is a splatter-free visual and psychological descent into the hell of madness, redeemed astonishingly by an unlikely connection between a monster and a haunted young woman. Anthony Hopkins is extraordinary as the cannibalistic psychiatrist Dr Hannibal Lecter; Jodie Foster is equally memorable as the vulnerable FBI agent-in-training Clarice Starling. --Tom Keogh Hannibal is set 10 years after Silence of the Lambs, as Dr Hannibal "the Cannibal" Lecter (Anthony Hopkins, reprising his Oscar-winning role) is living the good life in Italy, studying art and sipping espresso. FBI agent Clarice Starling (Julianne Moore replaces Jodie Foster), on the other hand, hasn't had it so good. The film is so stylistically different from its predecessor that it forces you to take it on its own terms. Director Ridley Scott gives the film a sleek, almost European look that lets you know that, unlike the first film (which was about the quintessentially American Clarice), this movie is all Hannibal. Hopkins and Moore are both first-rate, but the film contrives to keep them as far apart as possible. When they do connect it's quite thrilling but it's unfortunately too little too late. --Mark Englehart Anthony Hopkins returns as Hannibal Lecter in Red Dragon, a prequel to The Silence of the Lambs and a remake of 1986's Manhunter, Michael Mann's fine film of Thomas Harris's terrific book, in which Brian Cox carved the ham thinner as a more menacing, less hokey cannibal. This film beefs up Lecter's role, as FBI agent Will Graham (Edward Norton) consults Lecter on the Tooth Fairy case, which means some pointed and familiar conversations, and the film then shifts focus from the investigation to the life and troubles of the mad and murderous but also abused and sympathetic Francis Dolarhyde (Ralph Fiennes, with a major tattoo and a harelip). It's hard not to compare the current cast with Mann's excellent players. Still, Red Dragon is a solid film of great material, with all the sudden shocks and disturbing whispers in places. --Kim Newman

    Fill a bowl with alpine strawberries, break out the Château Lafite (1899, of course) and bask in Brideshead Revisited, the 1981 miniseries based on Evelyn Waugh's classic novel, adapted for the screen by John Mortimer (Rumpole of the Bailey). In his breakthrough role, Jeremy Irons stars as Charles Ryder, a disillusioned Army captain who is moved to reflect on his "languid days" in the "enchanted castle" that was Brideshead, home of the aristocratic Marchmain family, whose acquaintance Charles made in the company of an Oxford classmate, the charming wild-child Sebastian. Anthony Andrews costars as the doomed Sebastian, whose beauty is "arresting" and "whose eccentricities and behaviour seemed to know no bounds". The "entitled and enchanted" Sebastian takes Charles under his wing ("Charles, what a lot you have to learn"), but vows early on that he is "not going to let [Charles] get mixed up with [his] family." But mixed up Charles gets. He becomes a friend and confidante, not to mention a lover, to Sebastian's sister Julia (Diana Quick). Meanwhile, the self-destructive Sebastian's life spirals out of control. Brideshead Revisited boasts a distinguished ensemble cast, including Laurence Olivier in his Emmy Award-winning role as the exiled Lord Marchmain, Claire Bloom as Lady Marchmain, and the magnificent John Gielgud as Charles's estranged father. Grand locations and a haunting musical score make this a memorable revisit of an irretrievable bygone era. --Donald Liebenson

  • The Scarlet Pimpernel [1982]The Scarlet Pimpernel | DVD | (18/09/2001) from £N/A   |  Saving you £N/A (N/A%)   |  RRP £15.99

    It's tough trying to beat the 1934 version of the popular adventure-romance story, starring Leslie Howard as the 18th-century British hero who poses as a fop in London society but runs a secret mission to rescue the doomed in Robespierre's Paris. But this 1982 television version, starring Anthony Andrews (Sebastian Flyte in Brideshead Revisited) as the Pimpernel and Jane Seymour as his beloved but estranged wife, is quite a treat. Andrews and Seymour expertly capture the essence of a relationship suffering from misunderstandings and elusive passion, and there is plenty of crackle to the action sequences. Clive Donner (What's New, Pussycat?) brings some strong cinematic qualities to this television presentation. --Tom Keogh

    At the crumbling stately home of Hazelwood Manor life for its few remaining downstairs staff is about to take a dramatic leap upstairs when their small syndicate beats the unlikely odds and wins the lottery. Overlooking the seaside town of Scarborough the once impressive manor has been in the family of Lord Hazelwood (Anthony Andrews Brideshead Revisited) since his ancestors built it in the 18th century. There used to be more than thirty staff at the house but now with a mounting debt of £6.5 million and counting there are just five remaining since Lord and Lady Hazelwood (Alice Krige Thor: The Dark World) were forced to let the others go.  Gardener and math enthusiast Godfrey (Lenny Henry Othello Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban) housekeeper Sarah (Cara Theobold Downton Abbey) cleaner Dawn (Elizabeth Berrington Mr. Turner) cook Julie (Melanie Hill Stardust) and gamekeeper-cum-groomsman Sean (Richard Rankin The Crimson Field) all have to pitch in and do more than one job just to keep the household running smoothly. Now Lord Hazelwood’s health is failing and the second Lady Hazelwood and her son Spencer (Sam Phillips In The Flesh) - who have grown a little too accustomed to their lives of grandeur - are more concerned with maintaining their lifestyle than sorting out the estate’s disastrous finances. With the future of Hazelwood in question and their jobs on the line the unthinkable happens - the staff wins the lottery! This touching drama from BAFTA award-winning writer Kay Mellor follows the highs and lows of their journey from downstairs to upstairs… There are now 14.5 million reasons why the lives and loves of the staff of Hazelwood Manor are about to change beyond recognition - but will the dream of instant riches be different from the reality?

  • Ice Cold In Alex [1958]Ice Cold In Alex | DVD | (18/04/2005) from £N/A   |  Saving you £N/A (N/A%)   |  RRP £13.99

    The title Ice Cold in Alex refers to the beer the heroes of this 1958 British World War Two classic plan to drink in Alexandria, once they have escaped from the Germans, negotiated minefields and survived both mechanical failure and the killing heat of the North African sands. The setting is Libya in 1942, at the height of the campaigns featured in The Desert Fox (1951) and The Desert Rats (1953), and a disparate group in a military ambulance--which include a Nazi agent to add tension of one kind and a beautiful nurse to add tension of another--must make an epic journey to safety. Staring John Mills, Sylvia Sims, Anthony Quayle and Harry Andrews the terror and poignancy comes from our certainty that not everyone will survive, such that the suspense sometimes reaches near unbearable levels. Director J Lee-Thomson was clearly inspired by the then recent French masterpiece, The Wages of Fear (1952) and handles both the character drama and set-pieces with great skill. He would go on to make another great war adventure, The Guns of Navarone (1961), also starring Anthony Quayle, who then returned to the desert for the ultimate British war classic, Lawrence of Arabia (1962). --Gary S.
