Another year has dragged by, the German occupation since the failed 1943 Jewish Ghetto uprising in Warsaw was still as strong as ever. The Polish resistance alongside the Polish Home Army commanded by Bor Komorowski decided to launch a surprise attack on the German occupiers.

Walter Hill's updated (1984), highly stylised take on biker movies still looks like a determinedly eccentric project that happens to work at times, but not at others. Michael Paré plays a biker who agrees to rescue his ex-girlfriend (a rocker played by Diane Lane) from kidnappers (led by Willem Dafoe). The ensuing battle against a nocturnal background of industrial blight, chrome, and loud music is like some fever dream of a Springsteen fan who listened to the song "Born to Run" far too often. The audacity of the film carries it a long way even after it becomes clear that Hill's experiment is crumbling under its own weight. Dafoe, who looked even spookier back then than he does now, is memorable, as are Amy Madigan and Rick Moranis. Music is by Ry Cooder, with an appearance by the Blasters. The DVD release has a widescreen presentation, optional French soundtrack, optional Spanish subtitles. --Tom Keogh

Review of Aberdeen in general
Advantages: Great food at a reasonable price Disadvantages: Trying to find the toilets
...main street for a nosy. It offered a good selection at a price that was acceptable to us all so we wandered in, getting a friendly good evening from the bouncers as we did so.
For those of you who are unfamiliar with Aberdeen, this pub actually has the address of 1, Union Terrace, and is just beside the bridge on Union Street that overlooks the park that heads off towards...
Advantages: Good food and atmosphere Disadvantages: Can be pricey
...This is the second year in a row my company Christmas Party has been held here, at the Dover Street Restaurant and Bar. The restaurant is on Dover Street (surprise, surprise!) in Mayfair, not far from Green Park tube station.
Lucky me, the meal and drinks were all paid for! However the a la Carte menu, Party menus and wine lists, with prices, are available in pdf format on their website...
