Black Narcissus | DVD | (26/09/2005)
from £14.99 | Saving you £-2.95 (-14.80%) | RRP
When Bernardo Bertolucci went to the Himalayas to film Little Buddha, so the anecdote runs, he was disappointed by the scenery. Somehow, the real thing didn't quite live up to what he'd been led to expect by Powell and Pressburger's Black Narcissus. It's not hard to see why he felt let down. Their film is almost ridiculously gorgeous--a procession of saturated Technicolor, Expressionist angles, theatrical lighting and overwrought design. It has a good claim to being the high watermark of lushness in the British cinema (and, incidentally, every original foot of it was actually shot in Britain). No wonder it took the Oscar for colour cinematography (shot by Jack Cardiff) as well as for art direction and set decoration (created by Alfred Junge).Audiences loved it on its first release, but the critics were cooler: hadn't the story been upstaged by the baroque images? Well, probably, but that's not altogether a bad thing, since the plot--quite faithful to Rumer Godden's popular novel --isn't wholly free of corn. A group of five Anglican nuns, led by Sister Clodagh (Deborah Kerr) establish a school and hospital in a former harem among the Himalayan peaks. The wind blows, the drums pound, the Old Gods stir, and one by one the celibate sisters succumb to unchaste thoughts, above all Sister Ruth (Kathleen Byron, terrific in the role), so consumed by erotic yearning for the one Englishman in sight (David Farraar) she puts on crimson lipstick, wears her wimple-free tresses like an early Goth and takes a downward turn. (Black Narcissus features the greatest scene involving a nun and a high place this side of Hitchcock's Vertigo and Jacques Rivette's La Religieuse.) Silly, to be sure, but also sublime at times and as curiously entertaining as it is picturesque. --Kevin Jackson

Mallard - Steams Ultimate Speed Machine ( Official N.R.M product ) | DVD | (21/10/2013)
from £29.14 | Saving you £-11.15 (-62.00%) | RRP
Marking 75 years since Mallard broke the speed record. Born of a century's technological development experience and scientific discovery Mallard was the greatest steam train ever created. She was not just sleek powerful and quick; she was also beautiful. Sir Nigel Gresley the genius who created her had vast workshops as well as a huge industrial battalion to do his bidding and could tour the world seeking the most advanced technologies. The Pacific A4 class of locomotive including most famously Mallard was developed at a critical point in history: the Goldilocks moment when the age of steam was at its height and before the shadow of the Second World War eclipsed the splendour that had been the railway age. In the 1930s two British railway companies (the LNER and the LMS) offered rival services from London to Scotland but they could not compete on price as the Government had introduced a national ticketing system. What they did instead was usher in the age of elegance and luxury on the rails in the LNER's case famously with Sir Nigel Gresley's Teaks probably the most elegant British railway carriages there ever were. All the others were just coaches or compartments: Gresley's Teaks were carriages. In addition there was the Race to the North the unofficial but deadly serious rivalry between LNER and LMS over journey times between London and Scotland. This DVD tells this incredible story.

Follow A Star | DVD | (12/11/2001)
from £5.50 | Saving you £-2.99 (-29.90%) | RRP
In The Square Peg Norman Wisdom plays one of a pair of council workmen who, while repairing the road outside an army base, come to illustrate the oxymoronic nature of the phrase "military intelligence". Finding themselves drafted, the workmen are sent to repair the roads ahead of the Allied advance through war-torn Europe by the sergeant they previously embarrassed. Norman finds himself behind the German lines, joins up with French Resistance, gets captured then sets out to rescue British prisoners from a German military HQ by impersonating General Schreiber. Of course Wisdom plays Schreiber too. The Square Peg is the film that introduced Norman Wisdom's famous catch-phrase, "Mr. Grimsdale!". Also here Hattie Jacques gets to sing a remarkable duet with Wisdom, and a pre-Goldfinger Honor Blackman provides the love interest. Following his rising star was just what Norman Wisdom's audience had been doing all through the 1950s and, by 1959, and after six films with director John Paddy Carstairs, it was time for a change. Hence Robert Asher made his directorial debut with Follow a Star. The plot is a comedy version of A Star is Born (1954), with Norman yet again playing a dreaming shop worker, this time aspiring to singing stardom. Vernon Carew (played by Wisdom regular Jerry Desmonde) is the fading singer who schemes to use Wisdom's talent to sustain his own rapidly failing career, while the girl is overlooked starlette June Laverick. Norman is surrounded by a particularly strong supporting cast, with Hattie Jacques returning from The Square Peg (1958), Richard Wattis, John Le Mesurier, Fenella Fielding, Ron Moody and, uncredited, future Bond villain Charles Grey. --Gary S Dalkin

The 4400 Complete Collection (Series 1-4) | DVD | (27/10/2008)
from £22.89 | Saving you £6.01 (20.80%) | RRP
Suddenly and inexplicably 4400 missing people are returned all at once exactly as they were on the day they vanished. Unnerved and unsure of the implications of this event the government investigates the 4400 to uncover where they've been and why they've been returned. It becomes apparent that the individuals have not aged or been harmed in any way and have assumed paranormal skills that they did not previously possess. The 4400 is a thought provoking and superbly constructed series of stories following the 'returnees' as they attempt to resume normal life once more. The dramatic content of each beautifully filmed plotline is enhanced as the discovery of abnormal powers in some of the people begin to generate widespread and unwanted interest resulting in further alienation and trauma. A young man has the power to restore life or bring about the onset of death in people ; a young girl has the ability to see in to the future and a pregnant woman carries an unborn child that may unlock the secret to the universe...

Babylon 5: Season 3 | DVD | (10/11/2003)
from £9.99 | Saving you £33.01 (60.00%) | RRP
Matters of Honour" launches the third series of Babylon 5 with the introduction of the White Star, a spacecraft added to enable more of the action to take place away from the static space station. Also introduced is Marcus Cole (Jason Carter) who, in another nod to The Lord of the Rings, is a Ranger not so far removed from JRR Tolkien's Strider. In "Voices of Authority" the show finds an epic scale as Ivanova seeks the mysterious "First Ones" for allies against the Shadows, and evidence is discovered pointing to the truth behind President Santiago's assassination. A third of the way through the series "Messages from Earth", "Point of No Return" and "Severed Dreams" prove pivotal, changing the nature of the story in a way previously unimaginable on network TV. Earth slides into dictatorship, the fascistic Nightwatch takes control of off-world security and Sheridan takes decisive action by declaring Babylon 5 independent. "Interludes and Examinations" presents the death of a major supporting character, while the two-part "War Without End" reaches apocalyptic dimensions in a complex tale resolving the destiny of Sinclair and the fate of Babylon 4 (dovetailing elegantly with the events of Year One's "Babylon Squared"), resolving a 1,000-year-old paradox and presenting a vision of a very dark future for Sheridan and Delenn. All this is trumped by the monumental "Z'ha'dum". In the preceding "Shadow Dancing", Anna Sheridan (Melissa Gilbert, Bruce Boxleitner's real-life wife) returns from the dead, no longer entirely human. In the mythologically resonant climax Anna invites Sheridan back to the Shadow homeworld with no hope of survival. Just as Gandalf fell into the abyss at Khazad-Dum, so Sheridan takes a comparable leap into the unknown on an alien world. On the DVD: Babylon 5, Series 3 presents all 22 episodes anamorphically enhanced at 16:9 for widescreen TVs. While not up to blockbuster movie standards these are the finest looking B5 discs yet. Likewise the remixed Dolby Digital 5.1 sound packs a considerable punch in the many action scenes while remaining clear and atmospheric throughout. Reasonable though unremarkable extras are in line with previous box sets, with detailed and informative commentaries by series creator J Michael Straczynski on episodes "Z'Ha'Dum", and the Hugo Award-winning "Severed Dreams". Actors Bruce Boxleitner, Jerry Doyle, Richard Biggs and Ed Wasser offer a more jokey and backslapping appraisal of "Interludes and Examinations". Introduction to Point of Return is essentially a six-minute trailer for the season, while Behind the Mask: Creating the Aliens of B5 offers make-up artist John Vulich, JMS, and producer John Copland reflecting on the creation of various races. Complementing this is a seven-minute look at Building a Better Narn. Designing Tomorrow: The Look of Babylon 5 focuses on the work of production designer John Iacovelli. Finally The Universe of Babylon 5 presents five short character profiles. The set offers an alternative French soundtrack and subtitles in English, English for the hard-of-hearing, French and Dutch. --Gary S Dalkin

La Notte | DVD | (24/03/2008)
from £22.65 | Saving you £-2.66 (-13.30%) | RRP
One of the masterworks of 1960s cinema La notte (The Night) marked yet another development in the continuous stylistic evolution of its director Michelangelo Antonioni - even as it solidified his reputation as one of the greatest artists of the 20th century. La notte is Antonioni's ""Twilight of the Gods "" but composed in cinematic terms. Examined from a crane-shot it's a sprawling study of Italy's upper middle-class; seen in close-up it's an x-ray of modern man's psychic desolation. Two of the giants of film-acting come together as a married couple living in crisis: Marcello Mastroianni (La dolce vita 8 1/2) and Jeanne Moreau (Jules et Jim Bay of Angels). He is a renowned author and ""public intellectual""; she is ""the wife."" Over the course of one day and the night into which it inevitably bleeds the pair will come to re-examine their emotional bonds and grapple with the question of whether love and communication are even possible in a world built out of profligate idylls and sexual hysteria. Photographed in rapturous black-and-white by the great Gianni di Venanzo (8 1/2 Giulietta degli spiriti) La notte presents the beauty of seduction then asks: ""When did this occur - this seduction of Beauty?"" The Masters of Cinema Series is proud to present Michelangelo Antonioni's haunted odyssey in a new digital restoration uncut for the first time ever on home video.
