    Rocky IV: Rocky vs Drago - The Ultimate Director's Cut Movie Review
    With Stallone wisely jettisoning and reframing much of the glamour and pomp from his 80s cheesefest, Rocky IV is fashioned into a considerably more weighty Rumble in the Jungle.

    Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition (PS5) Review

    by Rik Henderson
    Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition (PS5) Review
    It's great to revisit the streets of Liberty City, Vice City and the multiple locations in San Andreas. Added to the great stories and acting are new combat and movement controls from GTA: V and some nice looking textures in 4K. Unfortunately, no amount of nostalgic, rose-tinted fuzziness can skirt the fact there are loads of bugs and some odd remastering choices.

    Reminiscence 4K Blu-ray Review
    Lisa Joy's Box Office Bomb of a directorial debut may well be a flawed effort, but it gets points for commitment to the rarely financially successful tech noir genre, and it looks and sounds fabulous in native 4K DV with Atmos.
