  • Murder By Decree [1980]Murder By Decree | DVD | (17/03/2003) from £N/A   |  Saving you £N/A (N/A%)   |  RRP £12.99

    Murder by Decree has the distinction of being not only one of the best Sherlock Holmes films, but one of the best pastiches (i.e., a Holmes fiction created by someone other than author Sir Arthur Conan Doyle) featuring the late-Victorian detective. Christopher Plummer is very good as Holmes, and James Mason redeems the many mishandled screen portrayals of Dr John Watson with a rare, insightful performance. The story may not be unique in post-Doyle Holmes adventures--the private investigator pursues Jack the Ripper during the latter's murderous reign in foggy London--but the script by John Hopkins (Thunderball) is keenly intelligent, developing concentric circles of power and evil with great subtlety. Before losing himself in Porky's, director Bob Clark did a masterful job of surprising audiences with Murder by Decree, convincing viewers they were watching one kind of drama but then unleashing something very different, very unsettling. --Tom Keogh

  • Stiff Upper Lips [DVD]Stiff Upper Lips | DVD | (18/02/2019) from £8.79   |  Saving you £N/A (N/A%)   |  RRP £N/A

Aunt Agnes is desperate to marry off her spoilt, virginal ward, Emily. But Emily's momentary dalliance with a rough villager frustrates Auntie's choice of effete suitors and a Grand Tour of Italy and India is undertaken in a last-ditch attempt to loosen Emily's scruples...

  • Lifeforce [1985]Lifeforce | DVD | (11/02/2002) from £18.69   |  Saving you £-4.44 (N/A%)   |  RRP £12.99

    Director Tobe Hooper's Lifeforce, the follow-up to his most popular hit Poltergeist, is a film that must be seen to be believed. That's not really a compliment, though, since Lifeforce isn't much of a movie when all the sound and fury is over. But you've got to admit there's something crazily admirable about a picture that starts out as a science fiction mission to Halley's comet, turns into an alien-invasion thriller featuring a beautiful naked woman (Mathilda May) who's a vampire from space and escalates into an end-of-the-world disaster flick. Armed with a big budget and a special effects crew led by Star Wars pioneer John Dykstra, Hooper and Alien cowriter Dan O'Bannon have whipped up a concoction that's got everything anyone could ask of a horror movie--from zombies running amok in London to rotting corpses and energy bolts that signal the apocalypse to come. Keeping it all together is Steve Railsback as the Halley-mission survivor who holds the key to mankind's salvation--but what fun is saving the world when you could be seduced by a sexy naked space vampire? Check out Lifeforce to see how it all turns out. --Jeff Shannon

  • Johnny And The Bomb [2006]Johnny And The Bomb | DVD | (04/09/2006) from £N/A   |  Saving you £N/A (N/A%)   |  RRP £17.99

    Based on the book by Terry Pratchett Johnny And The Bomb is a time-slip adventure that takes Johnny Maxwell and his pals back into the Second World War. Johnny just happens to be on hand when time-travelling Mrs Tachyon is blown quite literally from 1941 to 2005 landing in a heap almost at Johnny's feet. While poor Mrs T is in hospital Johnny inherits her shopping trolley and its unusual cargo - the Bags of Time. Everything revolves around the 21 May 1941 when the small Pennine town of Blackbury suffered its only air raid of the Second World War. Along with Mrs Tachyon Johnny's Gran and Grandad were there - of course they were only teenagers at the time - but they fell in love when Grandad Tom Maxwell made his epic bike ride to raise the alarm and saved the residents of Paradise Street (including his future bride the pretty young Rose Bushell) from the horrors of the Blitz. Tom and Rose survived to get married and the rest is history - at least it was until young Johnny started messing with the Bags of Time! Johnny and his friends slip back to the Second World War and with the best of intentions start 'bumping into things'. And this is where Terry Pratchett asks the big question - if you could go back in time would your actions make any difference or is history already written? In the world of Pratchett everything makes a difference... maybe not a big difference but a difference. This edition blend all 3 episodes together to create one full-length movie.
