    The Amityville Horror 4K Blu-ray Review

    by Mark Costello
    The Amityville Horror 4K Blu-ray Review
    Never have the words ‘Based on a True Story’ had such a profound effect on a generation…and never have they been such a lie, with the controversy around Stuart Rosenberg’s seminal haunted house classic proving to be almost as interesting as the story of the Lutz Family themselves. And with 88 films releasing the 1979 classic on a brand new 4K UHD, we can decide for ourselves what actually happened and what didn’t…

    by Mark Costello
    Starman (Columbia Classics Vol. 4) 4K Blu-ray Review
    John Carpenter’s most emotional film still radiates charm and warmth despite its underlying tone of sadness and loss. And it's all the more beautiful on this stunning new 4K restoration from Sony as part of their ongoing Columbia Classics boxsets…

    Kindergarten Cop 4K Blu-ray Review

    by Cas Harlow
    Kindergarten Cop 4K Blu-ray Review
    After a slew of defining 80s action classics, Schwarzenegger shifted to a decade of alternating action with comedy, with mixed results on both sides. But at least Arnie fans get to come one step closer to completing their 4K collection courtesy of Kino's US disc.

    One from the Heart: Reprise 4K Blu-ray Review
    Francis Ford Coppola’s audacious musical failure still doesn’t right all of its wrongs after over 40 years… but there’s no failure like a Coppola failure, especially now in a dazzling 4K restoration from Studiocanal, complete with a huge number of extras to at least soften the blow somewhat… 4K COMPETITION LINK ADDED.

    The Marvels 4K Blu-ray Review

    by Cas Harlow
    The Marvels 4K Blu-ray Review
    A Holiday Special of a Marvel movie, it's unsurprising to find the 33rd MCU entry amidst the three lowest rated, and once again Disney display a complete disdain towards the very physical media that might help this flop break even, releasing it on 4K HDR after its streaming bow, and without the Disney+ trappings of Dolby Vision and IMAX Enhancement.

    Nightmares in a Damaged Brain 4K Blu-Ray Review
    Romano Scavolini’s grindhouse slasher with delusions of grandeur drags itself out of video nasty infamy and bizarrely onto 4K from genre boutique extraordinaire Severin for their first UHD blu-ray release in the UK. And it looks exactly as it should…grotty.

    Cool Hand Luke 4K Blu-ray Review

    by Mark Costello
    Cool Hand Luke 4K Blu-ray Review
    Another WB classic, this time a counter-culture prison film that utilises Paul Newman’s iconic star power to skewer authoritarian conceits that were on the verge of collapse across the whole of society during the turbulent 1960s. And it’s another wonderful 4K restoration, so authentic you can practically still smell those eggs…
