    Two Point Campus (Xbox Series X) Review

    by Ian Collen
    Two Point Campus (Xbox Series X) Review
    Sure, it’s only a little bit more than Two Point Hospital in a different outfit, but there’s still a fun and satisfyingly challenging sim that’s worth more than just a quick study.

    She-Hulk: Attorney at Law (Disney+) Premiere TV Show Review

    by Cas Harlow
    She-Hulk: Attorney at Law (Disney+) Premiere TV Show Review
    She-Hulk lands as a fully-formed super-hero in a frothily, frivolously, fun first episode that only briefly oversteps into spoiled brat territory and massively benefits from 100% Ruffalo/Hulk participation.

    Memory (Amazon) Movie Review

    by Cas Harlow
    Memory (Amazon) Movie Review
    Neeson continues to churn them out, with a remake of a better Belgian original that would have actually probably been a whole lot better without him blazing his guns through it.

    Orphan: First Kill Movie Review

    by Tom Davies
    Orphan: First Kill Movie Review
    Esther returns in her very own prequel revealing just exactly what happened between her leaving a mental institute in Estonia and arriving with Vera Farmiga and Peter Sarsgaard. Is it better than the first one? I think it might be better? Maybe?

    by Simon Crust
    Dog Soldiers 4K Blu-ray Review
    Perhaps Neil Marshall's best film gets a 4K makeover and a limited edition release from Second Sight, the results have us barking at the moon.

    Ghosts of the Ozarks (Sky/NOW) Movie Review

    by Tom Davies
    Ghosts of the Ozarks (Sky/NOW) Movie Review
    Sky scoop up an interesting one in its otherwise lacklustre roster of releases for the summer. An American folk horror with a healthy dollop of metaphor... ugh, actually I think I'm full. I can't actually manage that much metaphor. Can I just get a small side salad?

    Edge of Tomorrow 4K Blu-ray Review

    by Mark Costello
    Edge of Tomorrow 4K Blu-ray Review
    Doug Liman and Tom Cruise’s fiercely intelligent and hugely entertaining sci-fi Groundhog Day remains one of the 21st century's most effortlessly entertaining blockbusters. And now it’s on 4K… bet they never saw that coming, did they? Oh… they did, huh!

    Nope (IMAX) Movie Review

    by Tom Davies
    Nope (IMAX) Movie Review
    Jordan Peele steps it up a gear in his thrilling UFO movie. Also in his bitingly satirical movie about the workings of Hollywood. Also in his horror comedy movie. It’s… they’re all… it’s the same movie.

    by Cas Harlow
    Day Shift (Netflix) Movie Review
    The Chad "John Wick" Stahelski-produced directorial debut of stuntman J.J. Perry is a pretty fun Netflix effort, with Jamie Foxx having a Blade Trinity-esque blast.

    Black Site (Sky/NowTV) Movie Review
    Michelle Monaghan gets dirty in a vest for a grand total of 90 seconds of action in a 90 minute too long Sky Original where everybody armed with a gun gets inexplicably stabbed to death.

    by Tom Davies
    The Sandman (Netflix) Season 1 TV Show Review
    Netflix, like so many others, draws from the well of popular Vertigo Comics from the 1990s to find its next big hit and pulls up a bucket full of sand. But is Neil Gaiman’s Sandman a dream or a nightmare?

    Father of the Bride (2022) (Sky) Movie Review

    by Cas Harlow
    Father of the Bride (2022) (Sky) Movie Review
    Andy Garcia gives it his grumpy all in this reimagining of the Steve Martin classic, itself a remake of the Spencer Tracy original, with a nice new Cuban flavour and enough going for it to just about stand up as a watchable Sky flick.

    With the Momentum 4 Wireless, Sennheiser has taken a different design approach to its previous three noise-cancelling headphone models and set the cat among the pigeons with its pricing strategy too.

    Heat 4K Blu-ray Review
    One of the greatest crime movies of all time sees its 2017 4K remastered 'director's definitive edition' finally earn a full 4K release... but it's still not very definitive is it?

    The joint best film made by someone with the names ‘Paul’ and ‘Anderson’ finally gets a disc treatment worthy of its neo-cult classic status. Although there’s always something to be disappointed about... isn’t there?

    Luck (Apple TV+) Movie Review

    by Cas Harlow
    Luck (Apple TV+) Movie Review
    Stringing out a pretty fun premise to tiresomely banal extremes, Luck really does mean well, but takes 105 minutes to make an eighty minute story feel like a two hour slog.

    Thirteen Lives (Amazon) Movie Review

    by Mark Costello
    Thirteen Lives (Amazon) Movie Review
    Detailed document of the real-life rescue of thirteen members of a junior football team from the flooded Tham Luang caves in Thailand in 2018 that does a much better job of explaining the story and the heroics of those involved than emotionally engaging the audience with it all…

    LG S80QR Soundbar Review

    by John Archer
    LG S80QR Soundbar Review
    The LG S80QR second-rung-from-the-top soundbar breaks from LG's usual tradition and bundles in physical rear speakers with the main bar and wireless subwoofer. While it loses a few channels against the flagship S95QR, it keeps plenty of other features - so does it deliver better all round value?

    Bullet Train Movie Review

    by Mark Costello
    Bullet Train Movie Review
    The highest of high action concepts is turned into a gleefully fun romp by Brad Pitt, David Leitch and a delightfully witty MVP turn by Aaron Taylor-Johnson that still manages to work despite an overreliance on its tricksy plotting that’s never quite as clever as it thinks it is.

    Sizzling with the electric chemistry from its two leads, Out of Sight is the best Clooney/Soderbergh collaboration, Jennifer Lopez's best role, and one of the best adaptations of cool crime writer Elmore Leonard's works, even if Kino Lorber's 4K release is NOT cool.

    “As a means of motivating people to be cruel or inhumane[…]there may be no more potent force than religion.” So said Jon Krakauer in his book, Under the Banner of Heaven. If there’s one thing this new Disney+ show based on the book demonstrates, it’s that.
