    The Zone of Interest (Amazon) Movie Review

    by Cas Harlow
    The Zone of Interest (Amazon) Movie Review
    Jonathan "Under the Skin" Glazer's powerful commentary on the Gaza Conflict elevates this an otherwise "ok, you've made your point" slight belabouring into a must-see history lesson on the suffocating horror of dehumanization.

    China O'Brien I & II 4K Blu-ray Review

    by Mark Costello
    China O'Brien I & II 4K Blu-ray Review
    80’s and 90s martial arts superstar Cynthia Rothrock’s most widely known US films - both of which are DTV classics in the small-town Walking Tall meets Chuck Norris vein - get a spiffy new 4K double-pack release from Eureka that doesn’t quite prove how much Cynthia does indeed Rock…

    Abigail Movie Review

    by Mark Costello
    Abigail Movie Review
    Stepping off the Scream Train and jumping right into a bout of gothic supernatural and high camp uber-violence, The Radio Silence crew invite us to spend a night with the petite, polite and deliciously deadly Abigail… that’s sadly nowhere near as fun as it should be…

    Rebel Moon - Part Two: The Scargiver (Netflix) Movie Review

    by Cas Harlow
    Rebel Moon - Part Two: The Scargiver (Netflix) Movie Review
    The out-of-focus-around-the-edges sequel that absolutely nobody sane has been eagerly anticipating lands, with every opportunity to hit the ground running after the introductory first instalment, but also the desire to do a cascade of slo-mo flashback origin stories instead. This is how we make it to SIX films, people.

    Black Files aka Asphalt City (Amazon) Movie Review

    by Cas Harlow
    Black Files aka Asphalt City (Amazon) Movie Review
    Shooting for Training Day-with-paramedics, Sean Penn gives Tye Sheridan a baptism of fire in a moody, stylish and earnest 70s-inflected drama which just can't quite hit the mark.

    System Audio Silverback 1 Speaker Plus Stereo Hub Review
    The Silverback 1 active and wireless speaker pair are designed for on-wall or on-shelf duties. With a versatile Stereo Hub for multiple inputs, it seems that all source options are catered for here. But how do they set up and how do they sound?

    Civil War Movie Review

    by Tom Davies
    Civil War Movie Review
    Civil War absolutely isn't Alex Garland's most ambitious movie, but is it his most successful? A hard-nosed critique of war journalism, this is not the movie promised to you in the trailer...it's much better.

    Ripley (Netflix) TV Show Review
    Pushing past the initially jarring black and white stylisation, Ripley gradually evolves into a lavishly impressive Hitchcockian Hannibal retelling of The Talented Mr. Ripley, and a juicy leading role for Andrew Scott.

    The End We Start From Movie Review

    The End We Start From Movie Review
    Jodie Comer takes to The Road for some low-key indie apocalyptic drama that finds contemporary relevance and ground-level threat in a land beset by debilitating floods.

    Fallout (Amazon) Premiere TV Show Review
    The Apocalypse has never looked or sounded quite so funny, so sprawling, so fascinating or so beautifully designed as in Amazon’s new videogame adaptation that shows its peers exactly how to bring an epic sci-fi game franchise to the small screen…

    Marantz 50 Series Amplifier and CD Player Review

    Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire (IMAX) Movie Review
    Hilariously OTT, Barbenzilla and Bumblekong's latest nonsense is another deliciously silly, visually extravagant excuse for a monster mash-up and bash-up, and is rather surprisingly... fun.

    10 Lives (2024) (Sky) Movie Review
    Christopher "Duck Duck Goose" Jenkins' sophomore animated feature is an utterly throwaway Sky job that means well, and will at least entertain the little ones, but can't hold a candle - in terms of story or visuals - to the similarly themed Puss in Boots: The Last Wish.

    True Lies 4K Blu-ray Review
    The other HD MIA Jim Cameron film finally makes its way to UK shores with possibly the most controversial 4K disc of recent times. However, what may be more controversial is that the intervening years simply haven’t been kind and the film itself is sadly nowhere near as much of a classic as we all remember it to be…

    Wish (Disney+) Movie Review

    by Cas Harlow
    Wish (Disney+) Movie Review
    Disney's Centennial celebration imagines up an entire origin story from the Studio's own theme music, weaving 100 years of nostalgia into its every fibre - right down to the classical animation style - but ironically failing to find any magic of its own.

    Madame Web Movie Review

    by Cas Harlow
    Madame Web Movie Review
    Sony's hilariously misjudged expansion of the Spider-Verse continues with this lazily scripted, incompetently crafted TV pilot of a movie which teasingly teeters on the brink of being so bad it's risibly good, but mostly ends up being resoundingly worthless.

    Classic mid-90s courtroom drama, packed full of acting talent and introducing the world to the Edward Norton, that effortlessly entertains, it’s a shame that Paramount’s new 4K blu release will be found guilty of some of the studio’s usual crimes against ‘filmic restorations’…
