Apocalypse Now The Complete Dossier
This two-disc set includes both the original 1979 film and the 2001 Redux version, as well as a boatload of extras: a lost scene, a dozen never-before-seen outtakes, a "Redux Marker" that allows viewers to note the differences between the two versions, several featurettes (including one with the terrifying title "A Million Feet of Film: The Editing of Apocalypse Now"just when you thought you'd really seen it all), and especially for the English majors out there, a clip of Marlon Brando reading T.S. Eliot's "The Hollow Men" in its entirety.
This Island Earth
One of the peaks from the oft misappreciated world of 1950s sci-fi, this philosophically minded Cold War allegory concerns a scientist (played by the perfectly named Rex Reason) who gets drawn into an interplanetary war. Amazon.com keywords include "babe scientist," "giant insect," and "human taken to alien planet." Need I say more?
