Long-awaited long-overdue: The Professionals as you have never seen them before. Bodie and Doyle need little by way of introduction but if the series had at all escaped you since its debut in 1977 their boss George Cowley head of CI5 couldn't put it more succinctly than his opening gambit: anarchy acts of terror crimes against the public.

They could fuck the human race out of existence!" warns Michael Madsen in this inevitable--and inevitably contrived--sequel to 1995's surprise sci-fi hit. He's referring to a celebrated astronaut (Justin Lazard) infected with alien DNA from his history-making Mars landing, and the half-alien Eve (Natasha Henstridge), who was created from alien-human embryo splicing by biochemist Dr Laura Baker (Marg Helgenberger) in an effort to discover the alien species' vulnerabilities on Earth. While the astronaut sows his gruesomely wild oats with doomed women (resulting in a bevy of creepy kids in alien cocoons), Eve goes into heat until she and the astronaut can consummate their procreative lust. Sex and death are served up like money-shots in a porno flick, with an emphasis on gory flesh-regeneration, explosive pregnancies and slimy-tentacled intercourse. All of which makes this is the kind of derivative schlock that only a true fan could love, but it's boosted to a tolerable level of entertainment by the returning cast (Madsen, Henstridge and Helgenberger) from the previous film. --Jeff Shannon, Amazon.com

The Krays: Gary and Martin Kemp star in this brutally stark account of the absolute rulers of London's East End underworld through their reign of terror in the 1950's and 1960's. Their power was born from fear their respect demanded by brutality so horrific that eventually even their own turned against them. Chinks begin to appear in the seemingly impregnable armour of 'The Krays' and London breathed a sigh of relief in 1969 as they were sentenced to 30 years each thus marking the end of their bloody career. Bronson: In 1974 a misguided 19 year old decided he wanted to make a name for himself and so armed with a sawn-off shotgun and a head full of dreams he attempted to rob a post office. Swiftly apprehended and originally sentenced to 7 years in jail Michael Peterson has subsequently been behind bars for 34 years and transformed into Charles Bronson Britain's most notorious prisoner.

Based on Peter Barnes' hit play this caustic hilarious and irreverent black comedy has rightly become a cult classic. The House of Gurney has a family problem - namely the 14th Earl of Gurney (Peter O' Toole) who thinks he is Jesus Christ and when restored to 'normalcy' turns into Jack the Ripper. Unfortunately the young earl is also the sole heir to the family fortune so his relatives go to great lengths to trick him into siring a new heir. Then they can institutionalise him and gain access to the money through the child. But the 14th Earl of Gurney has a few tricks up his sleeve... This controversial tragicomedy managed to condemn just about every section of British society - from the public school system to the Houses of Parliament and from the Church to homosexuality. It also boasts some truly inspirational performances including O'Toole (who received an Oscar nomination for his tour de force role) Alastair Sim as a feeble-minded bishop and Arthur Lowe as a hilariously insolent left wing manservant.
