29th December 2003:

All I Want (£19.99) - Elijah Wood (The Lord of the Rings Trilogy) stars as seventeen-year-old Jones, an aspiring writer who shelves plans for college and rents a room in a boarding house, where the quirky tenants teach him a lot more than any classroom ever could. Between bouts of longing for his mother's (Elizabeth Perkins) love and his father's address, he fantasizes about enhancing his romantic prospects. First, he buys a bed from the oversexed Ma Mabley (Deborah Harry), who offers to help him break it in. Before long, he becomes involved with struggling actress Lisa (Mandy Moore, A Walk to Remember). However, it's the enigmatic Jane (Franka Potente, The Bourne Identity), a photographer, and a few years older than he, who really gets his pulse racing. When Jane has a car accident and her ex-boyfriend shows up on his motorcycle, things get complicated. Jones enlists the aid of Brad (Aaron Pearl), hos wacky downstairs neighbour, and they concoct a scheme that could get him what he wants...and a lot more!

Scenes of the Crime (£19.99) - When a routine delivery goes terribly wrong, young mob wheelman Lenny Burroughs (Jon Abrahams, TV's "Boston Public") finds himself holding Jimmy Berg (Jeff Bridges, Seabiscuit) - one of LA's top crime lords - hostage in a van on a busy downtown street. Surrounded by Jimmy's bodyguards who are led by the ruthless Seth (Noah Wyle, TV's ER"), Lenny soon discovers he's secretly been working for rival mob boss Trevor Morrison (Brian Goodman), who's got a $7 million score to settle with Jimmy. Taking orders from Trevor over the phone, and negotiating in the van with the smooth-talking Jimmy, Lenny realizes he's exactly where he doesn't want to be - right in the middle of a feud with two of the city's most ruthless and powerful gangsters.
