    by Kumari Tilakawardane
    Mank (Netflix) Movie Review
    Fincher's deep dive into the life of Hollywood screenwriter Herman J. Mankiewicz, who clashed with volatile genius Orson Welles on his magnum opus, is a beautiful film about the Golden Age of Hollywood.

    Falling Movie Review

    by Tom Davies

    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.

    Akira 4K Blu-ray Review
    Katsuhiro Otomo's 1988 cyberpunk classic is arguably one of the greatest anime features ever created, earning itself a gorgeous HDR-infused native 4K presentation in a set that is not without its potentially deal-breaking drawbacks.

    by Cas Harlow
    Jungleland Movie Review
    Writer/director Max Winkler (yes, son of the The Fonz) doesn't quite hit third time lucky with his latest, an indie rehash of familiar boxing/fighter/brother dramas with earnest performances from Charlie Hunnam and Jack O'Connell.

    by Ed Selley
    JBL HDI 1600 Standmount Speaker Review
    The HDI Series is designed to bring some of the benefits of ‘big’ JBL speakers in a less dominating form factor. Does it work?

    Samsung Q80T (QE55Q80T) QLED Review
    The Q80T is the replacement for last year's Q70R and has a 50-zone FALD VA panel along with a sleek design and one HDMI which can accept 2.1 features for gaming and 4K/120. With a price now under £1K for the 55-inch, it could very well be a bargain gaming and movie viewing set...

    Hillbilly Elegy (Netflix) Movie Review
    Based on a controversial best-seller by J.D. Vance, Ron Howard’s Hillbilly Elegy is ostensibly a true story, though the film goes out of its way to make it seem like pure cinematic fiction.

    Like it or not, it’s pretty much the most wonderful time of the year. Even through lockdowns, a pandemic and worldwide upheaval, Christmas does not care about your melancholy. Not keen on all this Christmas spirit and seasonal magic? You should probably steer clear of Jingle Jangle, which is not merely just a Christmas film, but also a musical to boot.
