['success, in this earlier effort again

drolly examines the tangled relationships between men and women. Edinburgh; Filmhouse

O The Thing (18) (John Carpenter. US. 1982) Kurt Russell. A. Wilford Brimley. 108 mins. A remote Arctic outpost is terrorised by an alien organism in this grisly remake of the 1950’s classic. Glasgow; Grosvenor o Thunderblrds Are Go! (U) (Gerry Anderson, UK. 1966) Scott. Virgil. Alan, Brains. Lady Penelope. 90 mins. The world‘s most advanced spaceship falls into the evil mitts of the villainous Hood. Can International Rescue save the day? Will you be able to spot the strings? Three guesses. Edinburgh: Filmhouse

0 Top Gun (15) (Tony Scott. US. 1986) Tom Cruise. Kelly McGillis. 110 mins. Glossy. mindless American pap with hunky pilot Cruise proving his worth in the air and on the ground. Nauseatingly patriotic but some aerial sequences are breathlessly effective. Edinburgh; Marcos Cinema

0 True Stories (PG) (David Byrne. US. 1986) David Byrne. Spalding Gray. John Goodman. 88 mins. Writer/Director/Star and Talking Heads front man Byrne is our guide to the mythical small Texas town of Virgil and its variously charming and idiosyncratic inhabitants.

A lightly humorous. endearing mosaic of non-narrative fiction that some may find a little too ‘precious’ for its own good. Glasgow; Grosvcnor o Twice in a Lifetime (15) (Bud Yorkin. US. 1985) Gene Hackman. Ellen Burstyn. Ann-Margret. 111 mins. Some wonderful performances and perceptive moments illuminate this thoughtful portrait of a typical blue-collar American family and their diverse reactions when solid. dependable ‘grandpa‘ Hackman dumps his wife of long standing in favour ofthe attractive widow he meets at the local pub. Recommended for those who thought American cinema had lost sight ofpost-teen heartaches. Glasgow:GF1‘

o Whoops Apocalypse (15) (Tom Bussman. UK. 1986) Peter Cook. Loretta Swit. Rik Mayall. 92 mins. A reworking of the London Weekend Television series in which a variety of international incidents. from the kidnapping of Princess Wendy to the dispatch of a British task force to Central America. escalate towards the brink of a nuclear holocaust. Reputedly a dim. frantic scattershot black comedy where the misses far outweigh the hits. Glasgow; Cannon Sauchiehall Street. Strathclyde: Cannon Kilmarnockj O The Wraith ( 18) (Mike Marvin. US. 1986) Charlie Sheen. Nick Cassavetes. Griffin O‘Neal. 92 mins. Small town vengeance is the well-worn theme of this unsubtle little thriller in which a mysterious stranger in a black Turbo Interceptor challenged the bad guys and appears to be the reincarnation of someone’s murdered brother. Notable for a cast pregnant with famous offspring. Strathclyde: Cannon Greenock
