    Arguably the greatest black comedy ever made, Stanley Kubrick's cold war classic is the ultimate satire of the nuclear age. Dr Strangelove or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb, to give it its full title, is a perfect spoof of political and military insanity, beginning when General Jack D Ripper (Sterling Hayden), a maniacal warrior obsessed with "the purity of precious bodily fluids", mounts his singular campaign against Communism by ordering a squadron of B-52 bombers to attack the Soviet Union. The Soviets counter the threat with a so-called "Doomsday Device," and the world hangs in the balance while the US president (Peter Sellers) engages in hilarious hot-line negotiations with his Soviet counterpart. Sellers also plays a British military attaché and the mad scientist Dr Strangelove; George C Scott is outrageously frantic as General Buck Turgidson, whose presidential advice consists mainly of panic and statistics about "acceptable losses". With dialogue ("You can't fight here! This is the war room!") and images (Slim Pickens's character riding the bomb to oblivion) that have become a part of our cultural vocabulary, Kubrick's film regularly appears on critics' lists of the all-time best. --Jeff Shannon, Amazon.com

  • Running Scared [1986]Running Scared | DVD | (11/03/2002) from £9.43   |  Saving you £3.56 (37.75%)   |  RRP £12.99

    This moody 1986 buddy picture and police drama represented a change of pace for both stars. Billy Crystal and Gregory Hines play two Chicago police detectives who, feeling gun-shy about the inherent danger of their jobs, contemplate retirement in Florida. They just can't shake the allure of their work, however, particularly when their pursuit of a notorious drug dealer (Jimmy Smits) turns personal and deadly. While there are more than enough light moments in Running Scared, generated by the easy and convincing rapport between Crystal and Hines, director Peter Hyams (The Star Chamber, 2010) succeeds in straddling the two disparate moods to create a taut and engaging action picture. --Robert Lane

  • The Deadly Females [DVD]The Deadly Females | DVD | (31/10/2011) from £20.23   |  Saving you £-5.24 (N/A%)   |  RRP £14.99

    What would you do if your husband, wife or business partner was making your life unbearable, to the point where there was no alternative but to have them removed- permanently? Could you bring yourself to do it? If not, bored Kensington housewife Joan (Tracy Reed, cousin of Oliver and niece of Carol) offers a possible alternative- for a price, she and her highly trained, all-female hit squad will very discreetly 'take out' the offending party and leave no trace behind .In this dark, bleakly comic and sometimes grimly prophetic drama from Donovan Winter, which, like many of the best British exploitation films, features a story ripped from yesterday's headlines, we enter the lives of both assassin and victim, and discover that in the London of 1975, whether swanky Knightsbridge or deepest suburban Orpington, noone has immunity from murder, and everyone is expendable. Locations also take in the legendary Biba department store, shortly before its closure.As usual, Winter assembles a cast of great performers from both ends of the cinematic spectrum, with future TV stars Bernard Holley (Z Cars, Tripods, Thriller, Dr Who, Phoenix And The Carpet, Birds Of A Feather) Brian Jackson (Revenge Of The Pink Panther, Protectors, Persuaders, Escort Girls) and Rula Lenska (Rock Follies, Take A Letter Mr Jones, Cluedo, Dr Who, Leap In The Dark, Confessions) rubbing shoulders with seasoned blue movie names Heather Chasen and Steve Amber, the former of whom is now a respected actress in her own right. There's also a minor role for horror star Sally Faulkner (Prey, Vampyres, The Body Stealers) which the eagle-eyed amongst you will have fun spotting.Is it the Mafia? Is it the Triads? Is it the Illuminati? The Men In Black? No, it's The Deadly Females - and they've got your name on their books...

  • UFO - Vol. 2 - Episodes 5-7 [1970]UFO - Vol. 2 - Episodes 5-7 | DVD | (18/03/2002) from £11.94   |  Saving you £4.05 (25.30%)   |  RRP £15.99

    UFO was Gerry Anderson's first live-action TV series after a decade of producing such children's animated classics as Stingray (1963) and Thunderbirds (1964). The premise of UFO, which ran for a single season of 26 episodes, was like a more serious version of Anderson's Captain Scarlet (1967)--in the near future of 1980 a hi-tech secret organisation, SHADO, waged covert war against mysterious alien attackers. Ed Bishop played the American head of SHADO--he had had previously featured in Captain Scarlet and Anderson's Doppelganger (1969)--though in all other respects this was a thoroughly British production. As with all Anderson series UFO evidenced remarkable technological inventiveness and groundbreaking production values, coupled with startling lapses in fundamental logic too numerous to list. Much more adult in story and content than earlier Anderson productions, and surprisingly dark with its pragmatic view of human nature and downbeat endings, the show now seems like a forerunner of The X Files and the equally short-lived Dark Skies (1996). Barry Gray's memorable theme and atmospheric music greatly enhanced the overall impact. Stylishly made, though terribly sexist by current standards and featuring eye-catching costumes more fitted for a camp fancy dress party than the front line of a futuristic war, this cult classic eventually evolved into Space 1999 (1975). On the DVD: from the animated menus onwards these DVDs have been beautifully designed and produced. The mono sound is exceptionally strong and the restored and remastered picture is almost unbelievably good for a 1970 TV show. With barely a flaw anywhere the episodes look so clear, colourful and detailed that they could have been filmed last week. --Gary S Dalkin
