The Equalizer - Blood & Wine DVD

The Equalizer - Blood and Wine - Out on DVDEdward Woodward is the original and best Robert McCall. The character is a retired covert intelligence officer, wanting to make amends for his sins of the past by offering his services, free of charge, as a troubleshooter, protector and investigator. Aided by a group of former associates who he knows from his undercover days, he protects the streets of New York City, offering his own form of justice to those who reply to his newspaper classifieds advert: “Odds Against You? Need Help? Call The Equalizer. 212-555-4200.”

To coincide with the DVD and Blu-ray release of the hit Sony Columbia movie “The Equalizer” starring Denzel Washington this week, Fabulous Films are putting out a feature- length made for television episode of the original series. “Blood and Wine” guest stars Telly Savalas of Kojak fame, and it’s no small wonder that one of the most well thought-of stories is there as a taster for the four seasons of The Equalizer that are already out on DVD. There should be a huge amount of interest from those who have no memory of Edward Woodward’s defining version of the character, as the Washington movie grossed nearly $200 million worldwide at the box office. And now, thanks to Fabulous Films and Cult TV, you could have had the chance to win one of three copies of “Blood and Wine” up for grabs in our prize competition.

Valley of Eagles on DVD

The hardly-seen Valley of Eagles out now on DVDA priceless piece of tech is stolen, the key to a new alternative form of power, and a Nobel Prize-winning scientist’s wife goes missing in this intriguing adventure film. John McCallum stars as Dr Nils Ahlen, the aforementioned boffin, who goes in search of parts of his radical energy-generating equipment which, in the wrong hands, could be used to propel a missile. He is joined by Inspector Peterson (Jack Warner, the legendary George Dixon of Dixon of Dock Green). They must chase after Ahlen’s high-maintenance wife Helga (Mary Laura Wood) and Ahlen’s assistant Strom (Anthony Dawson), as their journey takes them from the icy Swedish capital to a treacherous, wolf-riddled mountain valley in “Valley of Eagles”.

What begins as an urban detective story evolves into something quite different. As they journey towards the northern frontiers, Ahlen and Peterson come into contact with some Lapp reindeer herders, and ultimately encounter a tribe with a very unusual hunting technique (the clue is in the film's title!).

Bring Me ... Machine Gun Woman

Bring Me The Head of the Machine Gun Woman on Blu-ray and DVD“Bring Me the Head of the Machine Gun Woman” (or MGM for brevity’s sake) is a loving homage to those 1970s grindhouse/exploitation flicks that Quentin Tarantino is so obsessed with. Made by Chilean director Ernesto Díaz Espinoza (“The ABCs of Death”), the movie stars Fernanda Urrejola as the titular, weapon-heavy lady and Matías Oviedo as Santiago, a kind of Chilean version of Chuck, a geeky DJ who gets into very hot water after overhearing some gangsters putting a hit out on someone.

Santiago is given an ultimatum by his unsavoury boss, the absurdly-named Che Sausage (Jorge Alis): kill the Machine Gun Woman within 24 hours or suffer the dire consequences. Fortunately the seemingly useless club employee is more resourceful and observant than he is given credit for, and manages to track the hit woman down. Thereafter the movie descends into a sequence of tense and bloody encounters with a variety of mercenaries keen to put an end to the Machine Gun Woman’s personal bounty hunt.

The Witches Blu-ray/DVD

The Witches - out as dual format DVD and Blu-ray releaseOriginally released in 1966, “The Witches” is a portrait of a disarmingly quaint ‘Little England’ for its first couple of reels, before revealing its credentials as a legitimate entry into the Hammer horror film canon. Based on the novel “The Devil’s Own” by Peter Curtis, you know things are going to take a very dark turn when you see its screenplay came from the pen of Nigel Kneale, the creator of “Quatermass”. And here it comes, digitally restored on a dual Blu-ray/DVD release.

The pre-credit sequence sees our protagonist Gwen Mayfield (Joan Fontaine), an English schoolteacher, working as a missionary in Africa. The cliffhanger leaves her being attacked by a tribe of local witch doctors (look out for a young Rudolph Walker as Mark, one of her assistants). All we know for sure is she has been exposed to the occult, but it is only later in the movie that we find out exactly how deeply she has been left traumatised.

Malcolm in the Middle Season 7

Malcolm in the Middle - Season 7 is the final in the seriesAs we enter this final season of Malcolm in the Middle, first screened in 2005, it is worth reflecting on how is all began back in 2000 when 12 year old Malcolm (Frankie Muniz) was just discovering that he was a genius. Reece (Justin Berfield) was 13 and the then youngest brother Dewey (Erik Per Sullivan) was eight. Francis (Christopher Kennedy Masterson) was 16 and at military school.

The years have changed the brothers and their parents Lois (Jane Kaczmarek) and Hal (Bryan Cranston). All have grown, except perhaps Hal who is just as childlike. Malcolm is now 17 and Reece is 18 but has been held back a year and is in the same class at school as Malcolm. Dewey is just starting to get interested in girls and Francis is unemployed and looking for work.
