[url=http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/dt/assoc/tg/aa/xml/assoc/-/B00023P4IS/hollywoodbitchsl/ref=ac_bb1_] Never Die Alone (Fox) [/url]
Longtime Spike Lee cinematographer Ernest Dickerson (JUICE) directs this violent gangster film with oodles of style, using contrasting films stocks, odd camera angles, and multiple narratives. Adapted from the novel by African American pulp novelist Donald Goines, NEVER DIE ALONE tells the story of King David (DMX) a big time old-school street thug who is murdered shortly after returning from jail on a quest for redemption. After his death, an aspiring novelist (David Arquette) comes into possession of a series of tapes King David recorded, telling the story of his life which is then relayed in a series of brutal flashbacks (involving pimping, drug dealing, and murder). Meanwhile we also learn what led to the actions of Mike (Michael Ealy), King David's assassin. Fast moving and pulling none of its hard-to-the-gut punches, the film is steeped in rich shadows and contains a pervasive sense of karmic fatalism that links it with the classic film noir of the 1940s and 50s. Performances are generally strong with Ealy a standout and rap star DMX (in his second starring role after the action hit CRADLE 2 THE GRAVE) earning full acting props for his ability to make the larger-than-life character of King David simultaneously savage, sympathetic, and--most importantly--believable. He also contributes to the rich soundtrack which also includes such diverse artists as Curtis Mayfield, Bilal, Lil Scrappy and Vivaldi.

In this labyrinthine sequel, the Immortal MacLeod (Christopher Lambert) saves the people of Earth from immanent ozone layer-related destruction by building a shield that deflects sunlight.

Moreover, bounty hunters from the Immortals' home planet, Zeist, have given chase, and it could mean curtains for us all unless MacLeod and an ecologist can liberate the Earth and banish the assassins.

[url=http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/dt/assoc/tg/aa/xml/assoc/-/B00023GG9Y/hollywoodbitchsl/ref=ac_bb1_] The 5th Musketeer (Columbia/Tri-Star) [/url]
Based on Alexandre Dumas' classic novel THE MAN IN THE IRON MASK, THE FIFTH MUSKETEER is a tale of intrigue and deceit, played out on a grand scale. Set during the reign of King Louis XIV, the story focuses on Dumas' famous musketeers, D'Artagnan, Athos, Porthos and Aramis. The quartet now wants to replace the reigning ruler with an identical "twin" -- a man who has been locked away his entire life because of his uncanny resemblance to the tyrannical Sun King. Beau Bridges gives a dual performance as both Louis XIV and his twin brother, Philippe.

Basil Rearden's little-seen crime caper THE ASSASSINATION BUREAU is a tongue-in-cheek action-comedy about a society of assassins operating in early-1900s England. Post-Avengers Diana Rigg stars as the prim and proper Miss Winter, an aspiring reporter who stumbles upon the covert organization and sets out to expose the group with the help of aristocratic newspaper publisher Lord Bostwick (Telly Savalas, sporting a faux British accent). After meeting with bureau leader Ivan Dragomiloff (Oliver Reed), Winter challenges the assassin to a game of cat and mouse that sweeps across pre-WWI Europe from the brothels of Paris to the palaces of Venice--unaware that Bostwick has some shady motivations of his own.

[url=http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/dt/assoc/tg/aa/xml/assoc/-/B00020X88E/hollywoodbitchsl/ref=ac_bb1_] Take the Money and Run (MGM) [/url]
Woody Allen's directorial debut, TAKE THE MONEY AND RUN, is a hilarious mockumentary about the life and crimes of one Virgil Starkwell--a man who always ends up getting his glasses crushed. Familiar newsreel voice Jackson Beck narrates the tale of the hapless criminal and his ridiculous plans that repeatedly blow up in his face--sometimes literally. When Starkwell, played by Allen, falls in love with Louise (Janet Margolin), he tries to change, but he comes to realize that he is a born criminal--and a born loser. Allen fills the film with sight gags galore including his escape from prison using a gun made out of soap and then getting caught in the rain, and his parents being interviewed wearing Groucho Marx disguises. Many bits from his stand-up routine are also scattered throughout the screenplay, co-written with Mickey Rose. Numerous themes in this film show up in Allen's later work, but here they are played exclusively for laughs--and the laughs come nonstop as Virgil puts together a gang and plans a big bank job that he believes will get his family back on their feet. Allen's wonderful documentary style influenced such later mockumentaries as THIS IS SPINAL TAP and THE RUTLES. It is relentless in its verbal and visual attack on the senses--a worthy debut for a filmmaker who changed the face of comedy in the decades following.

[url=http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/dt/assoc/tg/aa/xml/assoc/-/B0002C9DJ0/hollywoodbitchsl/ref=ac_bb1_] Uzumaki (Spiral) (Elite Entertainment) [/url]
Based on a Japanese comic book, Higuchinsky's UZUMAKI follows the residents of a remote town as they inexplicably become obsessed with spiral shapes. Kirie (Eriko Hatsune), a young schoolgirl, first notices this phenomena when she encounters her boyfriend's father (Ren Osugi), maniacally videotaping a snail crawling up a wall. Later, her brooding beau, Shuichi (Fhi Fan), reveals that the odd behavior goes further--his father has filled an entire room with various spiral objects. And that's merely the beginning of the insanity--soon one classmate arrives at school covered in thick, clear slime (and only on rainy days) and the leader of a girl gang begins wearing her hair in gravity-defying swirly strands. Before long, this growing madness leads to a series of gruesome and unbelievably bizarre deaths. Are Kirie and Shuichi next? Unlike most horror films, UZUMAKI is almost entirely unconcerned with explaining its strange scenes; the movie's mono-named director is preoccupied with "how," not "why," these sequences happen and revels in their ridiculousness. The ensuing deaths and transformations--and there are many--are simultaneously amazing, silly, and disturbing. An absurdist thriller of the highest order, UZUMAKI literally wears its weirdness on its twisted sleeve.
DVD Features – 90 mins, Not Rated, Dolby Digital 5.1, Anamorphic Widescreen, Behind-the-Scenes, Interviews, Original Japanese Soundtrack with English Subtitles

British playwright Stephen Poliakoff's acclaimed television play CAUGHT ON A TRAIN probes Europe's changing social landscape through the transcontinental interactions of three strangers on a train. Peter (Michael Kitchen), an ambitious English businessman on an overnight train trip through Europe, is pleased to find himself sharing a compartment with a beautiful young American woman, Lorraine (Wendy Raebeck). But Peter's hope for a potential romantic encounter soon dampens with the arrival of demanding Viennese aristocrat Frau Messner (Peggy Ashcroft)--as well as the discovery of Lorraine's alarming xenophobia. As the trio's differing worldviews comically collide, Poliakoff's drama becomes a poignant contrast of Old World tradition and New World modernity.

[url=http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/dt/assoc/tg/aa/xml/assoc/-/B00023P4N8/hollywoodbitchsl/ref=ac_bb1_] The Celebration (Universal) [/url]
Thomas Vinterberg's contribution to the Dogma 95 collective is an electrifying achievement, driven by powerhouse acting and hand-held digital camera work so realistic that one might forget they're watching a feature film. Friends and family gather to pay tribute to Helge on his sixtieth birthday, but when it's time for the eldest son, Christian, to give the opening toast, the fireworks begin. At times hysterical, at times tragic and heartbreaking, this is a film that has the ability to single-handedly reaffirm one's faith in cinema. Inspiring and brilliant. Winner of the Jury Prize at the 1999 Cannes Film Festival.

An expertly crafted film that allows the daily activities of a pizza delivery man to depict the complicated social structure of modern-day Iran, CRIMSON GOLD is directed by Jafar Panahi (THE CIRCLE) from a screenplay by Abbas Kiarostami (TASTE OF CHERRY). Following Hussein (Hussein Emadeddin) through late nights riding his motor scooter out of the ghetto and into the ritziest neighborhoods of Tehran on his delivery route, and his daytimes plotting a jewelry store heist with his coworker Ali (Kamyar Sheissi), the film is dumbfoundingly simple to the naked eye. However, its bizarre and constant class-conflict situations are fascinating, a truly bizarre puzzle that Hussein responds to with seasoned nonchalance. On one occasion, delivering a pizza to the 18th floor of a high rise, he meets a young, spoiled rich man (Pourang Nakhayi), who lived in America until just recently, and invites Hussein to share dinner with him in his luxurious home. Though it is clear that Hussein's difficult life as compared to this man's--who did nothing to earn his financial status--is enough to make one's blood boil with resentment, Hussein is content to appreciate the newness of the man's home and the remarkable view from his windows. The shocking conclusion to the film comes into stark contrast with Hussein's otherwise patient and kind understanding of the class rifts in Tehran, admitting that even the kindest and most morally upstanding souls have a breaking point.

A brigade of cutthroat police inspectors use "narcs" to supply them with information regarding a drug syndicate.

[url=http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/dt/assoc/tg/aa/xml/assoc/-/B00026L7MW/hollywoodbitchsl/ref=ac_bb1_] La Ceremonie (Home Vision) [/url]
In Claude Chabrol's LA CEREMONIE, the wealthy Lelievre family live in a grand estate in the calm isolation of the French countryside. All that lacks in their lustrous lifestyle is the perfect maid, who they believe to have found in the shy and recalcitrant Sophie (Sandrine Bonnaire). The match seems to be perfect and Sophie proves to be "a bit bizarre, but a real pearl" according to Madame Lelievre (Jacqueline Bisset). Sophie remains distanced from the family and only comes out of her shell when she meets Jeanne (Isabelle Huppert), the spirited and gruff local postal clerk with a grudge against the Lelievres. The two spark a friendship based on their mutual distrust of the slightly aloof Lelievres and they soon learn that they have similar secret pasts. But as Sophie and the postal clerk work themselves into a veritable frenzy of hatred and disdain, Sophie hides an even more troubling secret that fills every moment of her life with shame and terror, and only serves to increase her antagonism towards the Lelievres. Claude Chabrol masterfully guides what starts as a seemingly slight drama into his patent Hitchcockian terrain of explosive psychological melodrama, all couched within a brutal yet detached critique of the bourgeoisie. Bonnaire is icily terrifying as the intense and mysterious Sophie, and both Huppert and Bisset give powerhouse performances in this vision of the evil that lurks just below the surface of civilized society.
DVD Features – 102 mins, Anamorphic Widescreen (1:66), 2.0 Stereo, In French with Optional English Subtitles, The Making of La Ceremonie, Director Filmography, Original Theatrical Trailer, Essay by Film Historian and Critic Jonathan Rosenbaum of the Chicago Reader

A writer (Robin Renucci) thinks he's been hired to write a biography about former game show host Christian Legagneur (Philippe Noiret), but after getting to know the quirky figure, he wonders if he, in fact, might be the victim of Legagneur's murderous ways.

In this French suspense drama directed by Anne Fontaine (DRY CLEANING), Charles Berling stars as Jean-Luc, an established physician whose comfortable, middle-class existence is thrown into turmoil by the reappearance of his absentee father Maurice (veteran French actor Michel Bouquet). Maurice had abandoned his family decades earlier to practice medicine in Africa, and Jean-Luc still harbors hurt and resentment at his father's unexplained rejection. Now Maurice is back in his son's life, but rather than offer remorse and reconciliation, the father casts a cruel and judgmental eye on the bourgeois existence Jean-Luc has chosen for himself. What ensues is an oedipal tangle in which Jean-Luc can no longer avoid confronting his own past and the emotional damage that has shaped his life.

[url=http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/dt/assoc/tg/aa/xml/assoc/-/B0001WTVSE/hollywoodbitchsl/ref=ac_bb1_] Seaside (First Run Pictures) [/url]
Julie Lopes-Curval's debut film is a lushly photographed and mature work. Set over the course of a year in Cayeux, a once-luxurious coastal town in Northern France, SEASIDE follows the lives of a group of residents who are struggling to find happiness. Rose (Bulle Ogier) is a compulsive gambler and mother of Paul (Jonathan Zaccai), who lives with the beautiful, but unhappy, Marie (Helene Fillieres). Across town, Albert (Patrick Lizana), finds himself becoming disillusioned with his marriage. As the seasons change, time continues to stand still for these individuals, who can't seem to escape the confines of their town's haunted past. Co-written with Francois Favrat, Lopes-Curval's deeply poignant drama captures life in a small seaside town with unflinching honesty. Almost painterly in its composition (compliments of director of photography Stephan Massis), the film pulls the viewer into the characters' world, and keeps them there for the entire year. Winner of the Camera d'Or at the 2002 Cannes Film Festival for best first feature, SEASIDE marks the arrival of yet another important French director.

[url=http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/dt/assoc/tg/aa/xml/assoc/-/B00026L7N6/hollywoodbitchsl/ref=ac_bb1_] Story of Women (Home Vision) [/url]
Claude Chabrol traces the sordid and sad trajectory of Nazi-occupied France during World War II through the tragic, tumble-down journey of one woman. Isabelle Hupert plays Marie, a young woman with two children who has carved out a life for herself during her husbands absence, barely managing to feed her children, gleaning some happiness from jukeboxes and girlfriends, and by performing and occasional amateur abortion for her neighbors. When her shell-shocked husband returns from the labor camps, Marie takes matters into her own hands and turns her skills into a booming abortion business, boarding prostitute friends on the side and taking a collaborator for a lover. While Chabrol details Marie's descent into amorality with brutal honesty, he nonetheless contextualizes her sins and shows her truly as a victim of the chaos of France's confused response to Nazi occupation.
DVD Features – 108 mins, Anamorphic Widescreen (1:66), Scene Comments by Claude Chabrol, Presentation by Critic Joel Magny, Interviews with Producer Marin Karmitz and Writer Francis Szpiner, Director Filmography, Original French Theatrical Trailer, Essay by Film Critic and Author Wheeler Winston Dixon

This little-known theatrical adaptation of the infamous TITANIC story was made in Germany circa 1943. The director, Herbert Selpin, was arrested during production by the Gestapo, and was later found dead in his prison cell. The film was subsequently banned by the German censors who balked over its scenes of panic and terror. The film went on to become something of a Holy Grail for film aficionados, and can now finally be seen in all its glory.

[url=http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/dt/assoc/tg/aa/xml/assoc/-/B0001Z935W/hollywoodbitchsl/ref=ac_bb1_] The Tree of Wooden Clogs (Koch) [/url]
Dramatizing a year in the life of northern Italian peasants at the turn of the century, Ermanno Olmi's THE TREE OF WOODEN CLOGS pays loving tribute to both the neo-realist style of filmmaking and a rural way of life that no longer exists. Hoping to create a better life for themselves, a poor family decide to send their young son to school despite the crushing sacrifice involved. When the boy's wooden clogs break on the long journey home, the seemingly minor incident sets into motion a series of tragedies that reverberate throughout the peasants' lives. Olmi's slice-of-life film--which he wrote, directed, shot, and edited--uses this central story as a launchpad to document, in moving detail, rural life under oppressive poverty. As the camera lingers patiently over women handwashing laundry on the banks of a river or farmers preparing a pig for slaughter, the quasi-documentary images transform these mundane tasks of peasant life into an almost sacramental epic of grace and beauty.

[url=http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/dt/assoc/tg/aa/xml/assoc/-/B00026L7MM/hollywoodbitchsl/ref=ac_bb1_] Un, Deux, Trois, Soleil (Home Vision) [/url]
Bertrand Blier's exhilaratingly surreal coming-of-age drama follows a young Marseilles girl as she navigates through the uncomfortable waters of adolescence. Victorine (Anouk Grinber) is a feisty teenager who can't seem to escape her awful life. Living with a drunk for a father (Marcello Mastroianni) and a kook for a mother (Myriam Boyer), Victorine eventually forms a close bond with the gorgeous Petit Paul (Olivier Martinez). Inventive and poignant, UN DEUX TROIS SOLEIL confirms Blier's status as one of France's most important directors.

[url=http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/dt/assoc/tg/aa/xml/assoc/-/B000244FNM/hollywoodbitchsl/ref=ac_bb1_] Waiting List (Wellspring) [/url]
Mixing sharp social commentary and comedy, director Juan Carlos Tabio's (STRAWBERRY & CHOCOLATE) WAITING LIST brings together a cast of characters who possess drastically different personalities, but who find much in common while they wait (and wait, and wait) for a bus to Santiago. As each person enters the terminal, he or she must sign a waiting list for the next bus. Reflecting the unwieldy nature of Cuban socialism, the line grows longer, and the only buses that seem to stop are full or broken down. In contrast, Tabio also effectively portrays the hardy nature of his subjects and by extension, the hopes for a smoother governmental system. As the passengers get to know each other better, romance develops, friendships form, and everyone gets scammed by a man (Jorge Perugorria) who pretends to be blind for a chance at the top of the list. As they suffer together, the group sets about creating a more welcoming bus stop--an undertaking that echoes Cuban governmental calls for grassroots efforts toward community improvement.

Jianxin Huang's THE WOODEN MAN'S BRIDE is a fascinating Taiwanese drama exploring the constricting bonds of tradition and patriarchy in a remote region of northwest China during the 1920s. Kui (Shih Chang) is a young peasant hired to be part of a caravan escorting a beautiful bride, known only as Young Mistress (Lan Wang), through the desert to join her rich fiance in an arranged marriage. When the wedding procession is attacked by bandits who kidnap Young Mistress, Kui bravely rescues the bride and they continue to the groom's family home--only to learn that the husband-to-be has died in a sudden accident. In the name of tradition, the groom's tyrannical mother Madame Liu (Yumei Wang) demands that Young Mistress honor the marriage agreement and remain with her, wedding the bride to a wooden effigy of her son. As Young Mistress chafes under the oppressive stricture of enforced widowhood, she and Kui embark on a scandalous affair that threatens not only the rule of tradition but also their very lives.

LAUGHING MATTERS celebrates the work of four lesbian comics who pioneered queer standup comedy in the 1980s and early '90s, when being out in the entertainment industry was not as common a topic as it is in the post-Ellen DeGeneres era. Alternating candid interviews with live standup performances, comedians Kate Clinton, Karen Williams, Marga Gomez, and Suzanne Westenhoefer offer their comic observations on being funny and lesbian--and the unique challenges involved in both.

More than fifty years have passed, but watching Diz and his men enthusiastically attack bop classics such as Salt Peanuts, Shaw 'Nuff or Things To Come still makes for wonderful viewing. All clips have been selected from the 1947 ling feature Jivin' In Be-Bop.

The reluctant hireling is soon apprenticed to veteran salesman Tommy Rag (Timothy Spall in a manic, over-the-top performance), whose sleazy tactics and all-consuming ambition further aggravate Pete's inner turmoil. Boyle's character study of working-class angst and desperation is brought to life by Jim Cartwright's witty screenplay and cinematographer Anthony Dod Mantle's dizzying digital camerawork, which adds a pitch-perfect sense of unease to the already queasy proceedings.

[url=http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/dt/assoc/tg/aa/xml/assoc/-/B000244EWO/hollywoodbitchsl/ref=ac_bb1_] The Asphalt Jungle (Warner Bros.) [/url]
Directed by John Huston, THE ASPHALT JUNGLE is considered by many to be the defining film of the crime oeuvre. After many years in prison, Doc (Sam Jaffe), a seemingly over-the-hill and retired (i.e. rehabilitated) criminal decides upon his release to make one last go of it. His attempts at reuniting the old gang come up against the intentions of his partner who intends to start a Kentucky horse farm with his share of the take. Doc's lecherous tendencies for young curvaceous women get him nowhere but delight the viewer with standout performances by Jean Hagen and a lusty Marilyn Monroe. The tremendous character development is aided by Huston and Ben Maddow's script, and Huston's direction. Based on a novel by W.R. Burnett. Remade in 1958 as BADLANDERS, in 1963 as CAIRO and 1972 as COOL BREEZE.
DVD Features – 112 mins, Not Rated, Fullframe, Dolby Digital Mono (English/French), Commentary by Author/Film-Noir Specialist Drew Casper with co-star James Whitmore, Introduction by John Huston derived from an Archival Interview, Theatrical Trailer, Subtitles (English/French/Spanish)

Based on Kenneth Fearing's novel, the film was remade in 1987 as NO WAY OUT.

Holden is absolutely riveting in this suspenseful thriller that explores the personal toll of espionage and compromised morality against the colorful backdrops of Stockholm, Copenhagen, Hamburg, and Berlin.

The forerunner of BONNIE AND CLYDE (1968) has become a cult favorite. It inspired a remake in 1992 by former music-video director Tamra Davis and an homage in Jim McBride's version of BREATHLESS (1983). Wild young couple with a love of guns (she was a trick shooter in a Wild West show) and a knack for violence go on a spree. The camera work has a jarring immediacy and the leads have a contemporary-feeling snarling attitude.

[url=http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/dt/assoc/tg/aa/xml/assoc/-/B000244EX8/hollywoodbitchsl/ref=ac_bb1_] Murder, My Sweet (Warner Bros.) [/url]
Director Edward Dmytryk put himself on the map with this impressionistic adaptation of Raymond Chandler's detective novel FAREWELL, MY LOVELY. It was also a big turning point in the career of Dick Powell, who before this film was known only as a young male lead in countless musicals opposite Ruby Keeler and Joan Blondell. Here he shows grittiness and snap as the hard-boiled detective Phillip Marlowe, who finds himself ensnared in an elaborate net of murder and deceit. At the center of the mystery is a missing jade necklace and a dim-witted but dangerous thug named Moose (Mike Mazurki) who's hired Marlowe to find his lost girlfriend, Velma. In one memorable sequence, Marlowe finds himself vividly hallucinating after waking from a drug-induced stupor. He also gets beaten up and later seduced by a mysterious hard-as-nails blonde (Claire Trevor). Otto Kruger, Miles Mander, Anne Shirley, and Ralf Harolde are but a few of the interesting faces in the cast. Film noir doesn't get much blacker or more enjoyable than this moody classic.

[url=http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/dt/assoc/tg/aa/xml/assoc/-/B000244EZ6/hollywoodbitchsl/ref=ac_bb1_] The Set-Up (Warner Bros.) [/url]
Considered one of the most realistic and gripping boxing films ever made, THE SET-UP is an emotionally charged story of the dirty dealings of boxing and an aging boxer who ignores them and fights to win. Filmed in real time, the film essentially chronicles 72 uninterrupted minutes of one night. Robert Ryan is Bill "Stoker" Thompson, who, against his wife’s (Audrey Totter) pleading, prepares himself for an unimportant fight but one he believes will put him on top again if he wins. Stoker’s crooked manager, Tiny (George Tobias), has already taken money from a hood, Danny (Edwin Max), in return for Stoker's throwing the fight. Danny’s boss, Little Boy (Alan Baxter), is a local gangster who’s invested heavily in Stoker’s opponent (Hal Fieberling). Even Stoker’s trainer (Percy Helton) is involved in a cut of the money. All of this occurs without the boxer’s knowledge, as they all assume he has no chance to win anyway. A grueling fight ensues, enhanced by magnificent cinematography by Milton Krasner and director Robert Wise’s expert pacing. THE SET-UP, based on a poem by Joseph Monsure March, is poignant, action-packed, and totally absorbing, a unique viewing experience.

Martin Ritt's adaptation of the John Le Carre bestseller THE SPY WHO CAME IN FROM THE COLD stars Richard Burton as Alec Leamas, a burnt-out spy soon to retire from British Intelligence. For his final assignment, Alec must pose as a drunk who wants to defect to East Germany, where the chief of operations for the Communists, Hans-Dieter Mundt (Peter van Eyck), has captured several British spies. His acting works: Communists throw Alec into jail for public drunkenness and for having an affair with a young member of the local Communist party, Nan (Claire Bloom). In jail, he is approached by Mundt's agents and asked to defect. They take Alec to East Berlin where he is grilled by Mundt's top man, Fiedler (Oskar Werner), who believes that Mundt is actually a double agent. Shot in stark black and white in documentary style, Ritt's film is a realistic portrait of the grim life of a spy, revealing all of the profession's complexities in a style that is equally as thrilling as an elaborate action scene in a James Bond movie. At the heart of the film is Burton's bitter and world-weary Alec, and his performance here ranks among the best of his career.

[url=http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/dt/assoc/tg/aa/xml/assoc/-/B0001ZX0CY/hollywoodbitchsl/ref=ac_bb1_] Hercules: The Legendary Journeys (The Complete Fourth Season) (Anchor Bay) [/url]
Based on the Greek myth of Hercules, the son of the god Zeus and a human woman, HERCULES achieved permanent cult status in its short four year run. When Zeus' wife Hera becomes jealous of his relationship with the mortal woman, she causes Hercules, in a moment of insanity, to murder his own family. Now racked with guilt, Hercules (Kevin Sorbo) roams the land, along with his friend Iolaus (Michael Hurst), using his incredible strength to help those in need, fight fantastical creatures, and bring justice to all. Star Kevin Sorbo, resembling a Greek god with his abundant muscles and flowing hair, brings a relaxed panache to the sword-wielding title character, as he puts down the enemy with ease and causes women throughout the ancient land to swoon at his sight. In addition to Sorbo's allure, and the expert swordfights and breathtaking battle scenes that make HERCULES one of television's best fantasy action series, the series infuses stories with a sly, 20th century pop culture humor that helped to create a rabid fan base and spawned countless similar fantasy/sci-series that successfully mixed action and humor, such as XENA: WARRIOR PRINCESS, ANDROMEDA (also starring Sorbo), FARSCAPE, and RELIC HUNTER. This program contains the series' complete fourth season.

[url=http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/dt/assoc/tg/aa/xml/assoc/-/B00029NKSS/hollywoodbitchsl/ref=ac_bb1_] The Persuaders (Set 2) (A&E) [/url]
Although it only aired for one season (1971-1972), British television series The Persuaders holds a permanent place in the pantheon of cult classics. In addition to its distinguished Brit TV pedigree--producer Robert S. Baker (The Saint), screenwriters Terry Nation (Doctor Who) and Brian Clemens (The Avengers)--The Persuaders also boasts an inspired, once-in-a-lifetime pairing of screen legends Tony Curtis and Roger Moore (in a pre-Bond role). Moore plays bored English aristocrat Lord Brett Sinclair; Curtis is a brash, self-made millionaire from the Bronx named Danny Wilde. Under threat of imprisonment, the unlikely duo are forced into a life of danger and espionage by a judge who wants to track down criminals the court couldn't convict. Together, the two wealthy playboys jet set across Europe in their quest to rid the world of villainy--with plenty of fast cars and faster women to help them along the way. Brimming with '70s charm and a healthy dose of tongue-in-cheek humor, this 3-disc box set collects the final 11 episodes of The Persuaders' one and only season.

[url=http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/dt/assoc/tg/aa/xml/assoc/-/B00023GGAI/hollywoodbitchsl/ref=ac_bb1_] Starsky & Hutch (Season 2) (Columbia/Tri-Star) [/url]
Dave Starsky (Paul Michael Glaser) and Ken "Hutch" Hutchinson (David Soul) are plainclothes cops patrolling the streets of an unnamed American city (portrayed by Los Angeles) in a 1973 red Grand Torino. Dark-haired Starsky, who has an unflagging appetite and a quick quip for any situation, and tall, blond, Hutch, who is more soulful and serious, are not just partners on the job--they are also close friends. But their unorthodox methods are endlessly frustrating for their boss, Captain Dobey (Bernie Hamilton). The duo has a powerful ally on the street, however, in Huggy Bear (Antonio Fargas), a shady character who proves Starsky and Hutch with plenty of inside information. Perhaps the prototypical 1970's American cop program, the series ran on ABC-TV in the U.S. from 1975 to 1980. Season two contains 25 episodes.
DVD Features – 5 Discs, 21 Hrs, Not Rated, Fullscreen, Original TV Promo Spots Narrated by Paul Michael Glaser, Bonus Previews

Television chef Pasquale Carpino is known as much for his opera singing as for the delicious Italian meals he whipped up on his top-rated cooking show on the Discovery Channel. Pasquale's innovative techniques--using everyday ingredients to prepare a full-course meal for four in less than 30 minutes--are on display in this volume of episodes from the popular series.

[url=http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/dt/assoc/tg/aa/xml/assoc/-/B0001Z3HM2/hollywoodbitchsl/ref=ac_bb1_] Project Greenlight (The Complete Second Season) (Buena Vista) [/url]
Ben Affleck and Matt Damon's daring reality show Project Greenlight returns for its second season on HBO. Conceived as a vehicle for aspiring screenwriters, Project Greenlight functions as a contest whose winning script is produced and distributed by Miramax--with HBO recording the entire filmmaking process for a counterpart reality series. This time around, the competition is opened to both screenwriters and directors to allow for a more collaborative and realistic approach to filmmaking. As cameras follow the contestants and eventual winners--screenwriter Erica Beeney and co-directors Kyle Rankin and Efram Potelle--from their initial entries to the grueling interview process, and finally through preproduction and filming of THE BATTLE OF SHAKER HEIGHTS, the series becomes a dramatic and compelling look at the conflicts and compromises inherent in the team-based process of filmmaking.
