    Samsung Q80T (QE55Q80T) Review

    by Phil Hinton
    Samsung Q80T (QE55Q80T) 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...

    by Simon Crust
    Parasite 4K Blu-ray Review
    It may not be Bong Joon Ho’s best film, but Parasite will be his most well known thanks to its Best Picture Oscar award; and it doesn't disappoint in 4K.

    The Christmas Chronicles 2 (Netflix) Movie Review

    by Cas Harlow
    The Christmas Chronicles 2 (Netflix) Movie Review
    Kurt Russell returns for a well-meaning, bigger budget, but slightly less endearing follow-up to last year's surprisingly enjoyable Christmas Chronicles, which should at least remind us that the Holidays are coming.

    Hillbilly Elegy (Netflix) Movie Review

    by Kumari Tilakawardane
    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.

    by Ed Selley
    Pro-Ject Debut Carbon Evo Turntable Review
    Pro-Ject’s latest iteration of the Debut looks similar to those that have gone before but does a combination of material improvements and spec changes make it the best yet?

    by Tom Davies
    The Good Lord Bird (Sky) TV Show Review
    If Showtime's dramatisation of the life of a religious abolitionist and his ill-fated plan to lead a bloody capture of the US arsenal doesn't sound like it might be a laugh a minute, I think I might be able to change your mind!

    by Kumari Tilakawardane
    Jingle Jangle: A Christmas Journey (Netflix) Movie Review
    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.

    The MP-40 is the smaller venue based AV Processor from Lyngdorf with 12-channels of decoding for Dolby Atmos, DTS:X and Auro 3D, along with RoomPerfect calibration and full system integration. It offers exactly the same performance as the MP-60 but in a smaller package, so just how good is it?
