Video Reviews MORE MOVIES ON TAPE

June 24, 1988| Compiled by Terry Atkinson

"Dr. No." "From Russia With Love." "Goldfinger." "Thunderball." "You Only Live Twice." "Diamonds Are Forever." MGM/UA. $19.95. 1962-1971. PG. Once available on another label at a higher price, these were six of the James Bond thrillers to star Sean Connery. They are also, with the exception of the disappointing "Thunderball," the best entries in cinema's longest-running series.

"8 1/2." MPI. 1963. Federico Fellini's surreally autobiographical film masterpiece, starring Marcello Mastroianni, is a film-buff must both on its own merit and for its influence on Woody Allen's "Stardust Memories" and Bob Fosse's "All That Jazz."

"Full Metal Jacket." Warner. $89.95. 1987. R. Stanley Kubrick's Vietnam drama, his first film since 1980's "The Shining," follows Marines from boot camp to battle.

"Ironweed." Vestron. $89.98. 1987. R. Downbeat film about two Depression-era vagabonds (Meryl Streep, Jack Nicholson).

"Nuts." Warner. $89.95. 1987. R. Barbra Streisand and Richard Dreyfuss star in this adaptation of Tom Topor's play about a woman who tries to prove her mental competence in a courtroom. Warner is also repricing four other Streisand films--"What's Up, Doc?," "A Star Is Born," "The Main Event" and "Up the Sandbox"--to $19.95.

"The Couch Trip." Orion. $89.98. R. Satire on psychiatry, starring Dan Aykroyd and Walter Matthau, directed by Michael Ritchie.

"Citizens Band." Paramount. $59.95. 1977. PG. Also known as "Handle With Care," this quirky comedy about CB radio, a small town and a romance (between Paul LeMat and Candy Clark) shouldn't be missed by fans of director Jonathan Demme ("Melvin and Howard.).

"1900." Paramount. $79.95. 1977. R. An epic about Italian families and politics by Bernardo Bertolucci ("The Last Emperor"), this 243-min. film (on two cassettes) stars Robert DeNiro and Burt Lancaster.

"Teen Wolf Too." Paramount. $89.95. 1988. PG. A hirsute Jason Bateman stars in this comedy sequel to the Michael J. Fox-starring original.

"Siesta." Lorimar. $89.95. 1987. R. Film debut of music-video director Mary Lambert stars Ellen Barkin in arty adventure-romance about a stuntwoman.
