    Clash of the Titans Blu-ray Review

    The HMV Premium Collection concludes its Harryhausen releases with 1981's Clash of the Titans, a flawed but more earnest effort than its flat remake, most memorable for boasting some of Harryhausen's best and last work.

    Wishmaster Blu-ray Review

    1997's b-movie horror, Wishmaster plays off a very flimsy genie-in-a-bottle premise, with some hokey but committed acting and pretty average effects but looking better than ever on this new Blu-ray release.

    Jigsaw Ultra HD Blu-ray Review

    The law of diminishing returns stabs the (Jig)Saw franchise in the neck with a needle full of acid, making this hopefully last entry a limp squid that only further sullies the memory of the first movie.
