    Stephen King's Cat's Eye 4K Blu-ray Review

    by Mark Costello
    Stephen King's Cat's Eye 4K Blu-ray Review
    Stephen King’s anthology film bears all the hallmarks of the writer’s cinematic output at the time and remains a baffling set of stories that entertain almost by accident.

    Top Gun: Maverick Movie Review

    by Cas Harlow
    Top Gun: Maverick Movie Review
    Top Gun gets the Blade Runner 2049 / Doctor Sleep treatment, with a decades-in-the-making follow up, which proves faithful, warmly fan-driven, gloriously nostalgic and surprisingly organic, showing there may very well still be a need for speed.

    by Cas Harlow
    Tokyo Vice (HBO Max / Starzplay) TV Show Review
    Michael Mann sets the tone for this slick crime drama, with echoes of The Insider meets Miami Vice, and a welcome authenticity partly thanks to Ansel Elgort's predominantly Japanese dialogue - Updated for full season review, now available in the UK.

    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.

    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.

    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.
