...and the Band played on
(1993 Roger Spottiswoode) 50:-

From Randy Shilts' bestseller comes a powerful, enlightening and moving chronicle of our times.

In the summer of 1981, few knew of the deadly disease we now call AIDS. "...and The Band Played On" follows the struggle of a handful of strong-willed men and women who took on the fight to save lives.

Matthew Modine stars as Dr. Don Francis, a researcher at the Centers for Disease Control who seeks to uncover the cause of a number of mysterious deaths. With little funding for a subject few will even discuss, not only must he fight the disease, but a disinterested public, the government, the media and even the communities where the mysterious virus strikes hardest. But as the death toll mounts, public interest is stirred and Francis' research becomes a desperate race against time.

Quadrilogy 150:-

The "Alien Quadrilogy" is a 9-disc set devoted to the four Alien films. Although previously available as the "Alien Legacy", here they have been repackaged with vastly more extras and with upgraded sound and picture. For anyone who hasn't been in hypersleep for the last 25 years, this series needs no introduction, though for the first time each film now comes in both original and "special edition" form.

"Alien" (1979) was so perfect it didn't need fixing, and Ridley Scott's 2003 director's cut is fiddling for the sake of fiddling. Watch it once, then return to the majestic, perfectly paced original.

Conversely, the special edition of James Cameron's "Aliens" (1986) is the definitive version, though it's nice to finally have the theatrical cut on DVD for comparison.

Most interesting is the alternative "Alien 3" (1992). This isn't a "director's cut" -David Fincher refused to have any involvement with this release - but a 1991 work-print that runs 29 minutes longer than the theatrical version, and has now been restored, remastered, and finished off with (unfortunately) cheap new CGI. Still, it's truly fascinating, offering a different insight into a flawed masterpiece.

"Alien: Resurrection" (1997) always was a mess with a handful of brilliant scenes, and the special edition just makes it eight minutes longer.

Middle-aged philosophy professor Marion Post (Gena Rowlands) would appear to have every advantage. After all, she has a rock-solid professional reputation, an equally secure marriage and enough spare cash to be able to rent a separate flat in which to write her latest book without interruption. But she is interrupted, thanks to an accident of ventilation, by the therapy sessions going on in the psychiatrist's office next door. Voyeuristically fascinated, Marion is particularly struck by the way that the unhappy experiences of his patient Hope (Mia Farrow) mirror her own, and realises that her life is nowhere near as materially and emotionally secure as she's been pretending.
And when she decides to rely less on her beloved logic and reason and open herself up to dreams, imagination and passion, the scene is set for a life-changing transformation.
