U2: Achtung Baby. A Classic Album Under Review
Achtung Baby was the album that fired U2 into the 90s. Displaying a broader musical palette than before and with a newfound smattering of irony, the four-piece dramatically overhauled their traditional approach to songwriting. The so-called 'band of the 80s' were moving on. They now reflected their moods in their music, had loosened up and were taking sonic risks - and every single one paid off.
U2 Achtung Baby: A Classic Album Under Review offers a previously unobtainable level of insight into the band during the recording of their most dynamic and well respected album. Via the use of live footage, long forgotten videos and the review, criticism and insight of a panel of highly opinionated experts, this package delivers the finest documentary film yet to emerge on Dublin's favourite sons....

Christina Aguilera: The Girl Next Door
Having first appeared on national television some twenty years back, and since notched up more than a decade as a solo performer, Christina Aguilera stands almost unparalleled in modern pop music. Having refused to compromise on her way to becoming one of the biggest selling female artists of all time, Christina has gained a respect her closest rivals can only dream about. And despite possessing the looks of an angel - which to be frank, haven't held back her career too much - this Staten Island Superstar is as far from the dumb blonde stereotype as it's possible to get. While often controversial and outspoken, her constant reinvention, stunning vocal ability and raw sex appeal have ensured she is rarely out of the limelight for long. Christina Aguilera - The Girl Next Door takes a look back at Christina's staggering career and music and explores quite how she has managed to become such a driving force behind her own success. Including numerous interviews with the girl herself, contributions from her nearest and dearest and previously unseen film footage, photographs and archive material, this programme provides the most insightful assessment yet to emerge on this remarkable woman....
Paul McCartney Really Is Dead: The Last Testament of George Harrison
In the summer of 2005, a package arrived at the Hollywood offices of Highway 61 Entertainment from London with no return address. Inside were two mini-cassette audio tapes dated December 30,1999 and labeled "The Last Testament ^, of George Harrison". A voice eerily similar to Harrison's tells „^vv a shocking story: Paul McCartney was killed in a car crash in November of 1966 and replaced with a double! British intelligence, MI5, had forced the Beatles to cover up McCartney's death to prevent mass suicides of Beatle fans. However, the remaining Beatles tried to signal fans with clues on album covers and in songs.
Until now, the "Paul is Dead" mystery that exploded worldwide in 1969 was considered a hoax. However, in this film, the mysterious voice on the tapes reveals a secret Beatles history, chronicling McCartney's fatal accident, the cover up, dozens of unknown clues, and a dangerous cat and mouse game with "Maxwell," the Beatles' MI5 handler, as John Lennon became increasingly reckless with the secret. The voice also claims that Lennon was assassinated in 1980 after he threatened to finally expose "Paul McCartney" as an imposter!
Highway 61 Entertainment has investigated this stunning new account of the conspiracy to hide McCartney's tragic death and produced this unauthorized documentary thai includes newly unearthed evidence. The mysterious voice on the audio tapes narrates the entire film in what may prove to be the most important document in rock and roll history, leaving little doubt that PAUL McCARTNEY REALLY IS DEAD!...
Rossini, Maurizio Benini: La Cenerentola (Blu-ray)
When the opera begins, the impoverished Don Magnifico, Baron of Mountflagon, is on the verge of social and financial ruin. The only solution is for his daughters to find rich husbands. Years ago, when he still had some money, he married a widow who already had a little girl: Angelina. The baroness bore her new husband two more daughters, Clorinda and Tisbe. Since their mother's death the kindhearted Angelina has had a hard time at the hands of her vain and haughty half-sisters and her stepfather, who joins his own daughters in all the petty humiliations they deal out to Angelina. Nicknamed Cenerentola (Cinderella), and forced to do the most menial housework, Angelina bears it all with patience.
Not far from Don Magnifico's house is the castle of the young and wealthy prince Ramirо. The prince wants a bride, and has chosen an odd way to find one, sending out his tutor, the philosopher Alidoro, all over his domains to look for a suitable girl. He and his valet Dandini follow up Alidoro's leads but, in order to test the qualities of the bridal candidates more conclusively, they pretend that the prince is the servant and the servant the prince.
