    by Ed Selley
    Mission 770 Standmount Loudspeaker Review
    Mission’s new flagship takes inspiration from where it all began for the company. Is this the way to audio greatness or shameless nostalgia?

    by Cas Harlow
    The Essex Serpent  (Apple TV+) Premiere TV Show Review
    Apple's adaptation of Sarah Parry's 2016 novel The Essex Serpent is a slow-drawn but well-drawn period mystery enjoying the welcome dual leads of Claire Danes and Tom Hiddleston.

    Uncharted 4K Blu-ray Review

    by Mark Costello
    Uncharted 4K Blu-ray Review
    The movie that was adapted from a videogame that stole wholesale from a fistful of movies… the cycle is now complete, and cinema has actually started to eat itself with this damp squib of an actioner from Sony and their new PlayStation Productions.

    Samsung HW-Q930B Soundbar Review
    This one-step-down soundbar for 2022 features 9.1.4 channels, 17 drivers and a wireless subwoofer with, for the first time at this level, rear speakers included. Largely matching its flagship sibling in features, does the Q930B represent Samsung’s soundbar sweet spot?

    Smokin' Aces 4K Blu-ray Review

    by Mark Costello
    Smokin' Aces 4K Blu-ray Review
    Joe Carnahan’s insanely schizophrenic actioner that’s part freak show, part roller coaster, part everything else, scrubs up nicer than you’d imagine on 4K from Universal…

    The Contractor (Amazon) Movie Review

    by Cas Harlow
    The Contractor (Amazon) Movie Review
    Far from the DTV action flick you might expect from the generic title and more a commendable third reunion for Hell or High Water brothers-in-arms Chris Pine and Ben Foster, The Contractor delivers low-key indie thrills.

    by Cas Harlow
    Shining Girls (Apple TV+ 4K Dolby Vision) Premiere TV Show Review
    Elisabeth Moss finds another show to look permanently disgusted in, whilst Apple stretches a pilot plot out over three long episodes in this new serial killer thriller-with-a-twist, which could live up to its David Fincher vibes if it could just get going.

    In desperate need of Adam "Vice" McKay's satirical wit, Julia Roberts' Gaslit still has a huge ensemble of wild stars, all thoroughly enjoying colouring in the backdrop to the Watergate scandal.

    by Cas Harlow
    DMZ (HBO Max) TV Show Review
    HBO Max's dystopian Rosario Dawson vehicle, based on the Vertigo comic run, loses much of its socio-political bite in favour of derivative gang warfare and undercooked family drama.

While the specs remain largely the same as last year's flagship, there's a host of enhancements and refinements to consider before dismissing this as just another high end soundbar.
