    Benedetta (Mubi) Movie Review

    by Cas Harlow
    Benedetta (Mubi) Movie Review
    Paul Verhoeven's 'biographical' tale of a 17th century lesbian nun who Jesus speaks through lacks much of the shock value it would have had back in the day, but still tells a compelling tale bursting with trademark sex and violence.

    by Cas Harlow
    The Terminal List (Amazon) TV Show Review
    Chris Pratt ditches his more goofy MCU/Jurassic persona for some gritty Navy SEAL revenge and The Terminal List defies its meh title to provide above-meh entertainment.

    by Simon Lucas
    Devialet Dione Dolby Atmos Soundbar Review
    The Devialet Dione is big, beefy and bold with the eye-catching ORB acting as a centre channel. It's at the top end of the single device solutions for Dolby Atmos TV audio and will have to prove its worth against a serious rival...

    Exposure 3510 Integrated Amplifier Review
    New Exposure products don’t happen terribly often and the 3510 replaces a product that was a true modern classic. Can it meet expectations and do you need one?

    The Man from Toronto (Netflix) Movie Review

    by Cas Harlow
    The Man from Toronto (Netflix) Movie Review
    Mildly amusing and hardly offensive, Man from Toronto rides on Woody Harrelson and your appreciation of Kevin Hart's schtick, from the director of The Hitman's Bodyguard... and its sequel.

    Beavis and Butt-Head Do the Universe (Paramount+) Movie Review
    If a bunch of great TV shows weren't enough to get you onto Paramount Plus, then maybe Mike Judge's Beavis & Butthead will do the job, on another time-and-space-defying quest to score.

    The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie 4K Blu-ray Review
    Luis Bunuel’s Oscar and Bafta winning surrealist comedy on the absurdities of the upper classes is now an even sharper satire in 4K from Studiocanal…

    Lightyear IMAX Movie Review
    Pixar gives us a sort-of origin story for one of its most beloved characters and delivers a much more grown up and interesting tale that sadly never pulses with that traditional Pixar magic.

    LG Eclair QP5 Soundbar Review
    The LG Eclair takes the 'size matters' argument and flips it - size does indeed matter here but it's the smaller footprint that may prove to be the selling point for gaming, music and TV fans that are short on space. Does a smaller size mean a reduced audio stature though?

    Jurassic World Dominion Movie IMAX Review
    The finale of the blockbuster dino-franchise, while bringing back some much-welcomed familiar faces, ignores all the interesting set-up of the previous entry and falls back on tired old storytelling tropes, reliant on some admittedly extraordinary set pieces and little else.
