TOP KNOT DETECTIVE on Home Video March 18th from Third Window Films

Samurai, robots, flying tiger sharks, time-traveling baseball players and alien monsters: the legendary – and above all notoriously bad – Japanese detective series Ronin Suiri Tentai had it all. In Japan, the series was strangely enough no more than a modest success. But in Australia, where it was released in the early 1990s under the title Top Knot Detective, the series became a gigantic cult hit.

“Learn the inside story about the greatest Japanese samurai series, you’ve never heard of before.”

40th Anniversary of Ridley Scott’s Alien: A Sci-Fi/Horror Milestone Against All Cultural Odds

Alien (1979)

This year sees the 40th anniversary of Ridley Scott’s Alien, and to mark the occasion 20th Century Fox is releasing a 4K Ultra HD + Blu-ray package that will be available in the UK from April 1st, 2019. Don’t miss the chance of seeing the alien, bursting out of John Hurt’s chest in glorious HD! Alien is one of the most discussed, dissected and academically analysed movies in modern cinema. Considering so much has been said about it, the film seems to be simplicity itself: a tense, linear storyline, an innovatively envisioned setting, sparse dialogue – simple, but close to perfect.

“In space no one can hear you scream.”

Class of 1999 (1990, USA) Vestron Video Blu-ray Review

Class of 1999 (1990)

Class of 1999 is a spiritual successor to Mark L. Lester’s Class of 1984; a tale of revenge that depicted an increasingly violent gang clashing with the music teacher of a troubled inner-city high school. The tagline for Class of 1984“Look at us. We are the future. You can’t stop us. Don’t even try.” – was derived from a comment made in the film by the leader of the gang, Peter Stegman (played by director Timothy Van Patten): “I am the future!”
But that was 1984. The year is now 1999…

“The ultimate teaching machine… out of control.”
