    Relic Blu-ray Review

    by Cas Harlow
    Relic Blu-ray Review
    This year's answer to The Babadook isn't quite as adept at trading in metaphorical (and actual) horror, but nonetheless affords welcome depth to the dementia-driven drama.

    Roadkill Limited Series (BBC) Blu-ray Review

    by Cas Harlow
    Roadkill Limited Series (BBC) Blu-ray Review
    BBC's four-part drama, Roadkill, enjoys placing the ever-watchable Hugh Laurie centre-stage in this compelling tale of politics and corruption.

    Perry Mason Season 1 (HBO) Blu-ray Review

    by Cas Harlow
    Perry Mason Season 1 (HBO) Blu-ray Review
    HBO's Perry Mason is a challenging slow-burn; a blend of Chinatown and a period-set Goliath which just about comes together in the end, and makes for a solid Blu-ray release.

    Train to Busan Presents: Peninsula Blu-ray Review

    by Cas Harlow
    Train to Busan Presents: Peninsula Blu-ray Review
    Train to Busan's sequel loses some of the emotion but doubles down on the intense ferocity, blending elements of Fast and Furious, The Raid and Mad Max to trashy but pretty entertaining effect.

    The Godfather Coda: The Death of Michael Corleone Blu-ray Review

    by Cas Harlow
    The Godfather Coda: The Death of Michael Corleone Blu-ray Review
    Attempting to reposition the third movie as less a sequel and more an epilogue, Coppola's new 'Coda' cut isn't drastically different, but does afford an opportunity to revisit this often maligned entry.

    The Night Porter Blu-ray Review

    by Cas Harlow
    The Night Porter Blu-ray Review
    Controversially polemic director Liliana Cavani kick-started her "transgressive" trilogy with her most notorious feature, 1974's The Night Porter with Dirk Bogarde and Charlotte Rampling.

    Children of Dune Blu-ray Review

    by Cas Harlow
    Children of Dune Blu-ray Review
    As we painfully await Denis Villeneuve's hopefully epic adaptation of Frank Herbert's Dune, there's no better time to revisit this surprisingly good TV miniseries sequel, based on Herbert's later Dune novels.

    White Snake Blu-ray Review

    by Cas Harlow
    White Snake Blu-ray Review
    Based on the Chinese fable, The Legend of The White Snake, this debut directorial feature is a striking animation which enjoys its wuxia aspirations and delivers some superb action, almost balancing the interests of children and adults alike.

    Last Exit to Brooklyn Blu-ray Review

    by Cas Harlow
    Last Exit to Brooklyn Blu-ray Review
    This cult classic adaptation of Requiem for a Dream author Hubert Selby Jr.'s even more controversial novel Last Exit to Brooklyn is an unsurprisingly tough look at traditionally utopian 50s America, earning a belated UK Blu-ray release courtesy of Lionsgate.

    Batman: Death in the Family Blu-ray Review

    by Cas Harlow
    Batman: Death in the Family Blu-ray Review
    The seminal Batman tale, Death in the Family makes for a pretty effective and innovative interactive first for Warner/DC, delivering bloody violence in this multi-faceted look at revenge.

    El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie Blu-ray Review

    by Cas Harlow
    El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie Blu-ray Review
    Over a decade after Breaking Bad first landed, and long after it ended with some finality, this excellent spin-off sequel proves there was clearly still some unfinished business to address.

    Finding the Way Back Blu-ray Review

    by Cas Harlow
    Finding the Way Back Blu-ray Review
    An excellent character piece with Ben Affleck on fierce, fine form, after missing its Theatrical Window and premiering on digital, this underacknowledged gem at least gets a Blu-ray release.

    Superman: Man of Tomorrow Blu-ray Review

    by Cas Harlow
    Superman: Man of Tomorrow Blu-ray Review
    Possibly a soft reboot of the DC Animated Movie Universe after the excellent but climactic Apokolips War, Man of Tomorrow reintroduces a young Superman, and throws the bounty hunter Lobo and the Martian Manhunter into the mix too.

    Walkabout Blu-ray Review

    by Cas Harlow
    Walkabout Blu-ray Review
    Nic Roeg's classic eschews the Criterion treatment on this side of the pond, instead landing a lavish brand new 4K-scanned Limited Edition Blu-ray packed with exclusive features.

    Deathstroke: Knights and Dragons Blu-ray Review

    by Cas Harlow
    Deathstroke: Knights and Dragons Blu-ray Review
    After Mortal Kombat: Scorpion's Revenge, DC goes similarly ultra-violent for this superb reimagining of sometimes villain, sometimes anti-hero Deathstroke.

    Gangs of London Blu-ray Review

    by Cas Harlow
    Gangs of London Blu-ray Review
    The bone-crunchingly-wincing hit TV show from Raid's Gareth Evans brings the exquisitely choreographed ultra-violence he's become renowned for home on Blu-ray.

    A Rainy Day in New York Blu-ray Review

    by Cas Harlow
    A Rainy Day in New York Blu-ray Review
    Hardly a sunny time in his own career, Woody Allen's latest rainy New York rom-com aims for knowing meta satire but often comes closer to just plain irritating.

    Fantasy Island Blu-ray Review

    by Cas Harlow
    Fantasy Island Blu-ray Review
    Needlessly attempting to leverage a franchise name from a 70s show few people will even remember, Fantasy Island's attempt to infuse horror into the 'classic' cautionary tales only succeeds in an all-round resounding failure.
