    Rocky IV: Rocky vs Drago - The Ultimate Director's Cut Movie Review

    by Cas Harlow
    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.

    Spencer Movie Review

    by Cas Harlow
    Spencer Movie Review
    Kristen Stewart is outstanding in Pablo Larraín's second First Lady biopic after Jackie, here taking a richly fish-eyed look at isolation and mental illness in the land of the blindly privileged, and paying fitting tribute to a lost soul.

    Riders of Justice (Sky/NOW) Movie Review
    In Anders Thomas Jensen’s black comedy, Mads Mikkelsen takes on a biker gang in a movie about accidents, coincidences, computer hacking, large Danish barns and, perhaps most surprisingly, the psychological toll caused by a quest for revenge.

    Reminiscence 4K Blu-ray Review

    by Cas Harlow
    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.

    Cowboy Bebop (Netflix) Season 1 TV Show Review

    by Tom Davies
    Cowboy Bebop (Netflix) Season 1 TV Show Review
    The genre defining “bounty hunter in space” story, Cowboy Bebop, returns to television screens after more than twenty years. Bringing live action and faithful production design but leaving behind the Real Folk Blues and, sadly, any heart.

    The Wheel of Time (Amazon) Season 1 Premiere TV Show Review

    by Tom Davies
    The Wheel of Time (Amazon) Season 1 Premiere TV Show Review
    With Amazon still searching for its Game of Thrones, the adaptation of Robert Jordan and Brandon Sanderson’s best-selling series of novels manages to mostly set aside teen angst to craft an uneven but pacey high fantasy adventure.

    Ghostbusters: Afterlife Movie Review

    by Mark Costello
    Ghostbusters: Afterlife Movie Review
    A supremely charming and hugely fun sequel that strikes the near perfect balance of nostalgia and modern-day sequel that has its heart firmly in the right place and is truly worthy of the Ghostbusters' name.

    Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings 4K Blu-ray Review

    by Cas Harlow
    Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings 4K Blu-ray Review
    Whilst Eternals flounders at the Big Screen, Marvel's ode to Wuxia, Shang-Chi, smashes down onto home formats, not only on 4K disc, but actually - arguably more impressively - in IMAX Enhanced 4KDV on Disney+.

    Cry Macho Movie Review

    by Cas Harlow
    Cry Macho Movie Review
    This undeniably slight road movie is a heartfelt but melancholy affair, mostly because it might be the last starring work we get from the 91 year old legend that is Clint Eastwood. Plus win a 40-film Eastwood Box Set.

    by Cas Harlow
    Doom Patrol Season 3 (Starz) TV Show Review
    Continuing to stand out amongst the rest, Doom Patrol enjoys leaning into its horror roots for a superb season of zombies, resurrections, astral projections, time travel and dance numbers.

    Red Notice (Netflix) Movie Review

    by Tom Davies
    Red Notice (Netflix) Movie Review
    Continuing the streak of thievery themed Netflix output, Red Notice is a vacuous husk of a heist movie with a lot of star power, some odd daddy issues, and very little else.
