    Flash Gordon 4K Blu-ray Review

    by Cas Harlow
    Flash Gordon 4K Blu-ray Review
    Wildly overacted, nonsensical, with cheap effects that haven't aged well at all, Flash Gordon is an unbelievably entertaining ride, held together by some tremendously over the top set and costume design and one hell of a score from Queen - all of which makes for an unmissable native 4K box set.

    Gangs of London Blu-ray Review

    by Cas Harlow
    Gangs of London Blu-ray Review
    The bone-crunchingly-wincing hit TV show from Raid's Gareth Evans brings the exquisitely choreographed ultra-violence he's become renowned for home on Blu-ray.

    A Rainy Day in New York Blu-ray Review

    by Cas Harlow
    A Rainy Day in New York Blu-ray Review
    Hardly a sunny time in his own career, Woody Allen's latest rainy New York rom-com aims for knowing meta satire but often comes closer to just plain irritating.

    Fantasy Island Blu-ray Review

    by Cas Harlow
    Fantasy Island Blu-ray Review
    Needlessly attempting to leverage a franchise name from a 70s show few people will even remember, Fantasy Island's attempt to infuse horror into the 'classic' cautionary tales only succeeds in an all-round resounding failure.

    Pennyworth Season 1 Blu-ray Review
    Nobody ever asked for a prequel series about Batman's butler, Alfred, but we got one - the surprise is that it's pretty good.

    Dolittle 4K Blu-ray Review

    by Cas Harlow
    Dolittle 4K Blu-ray Review
    Dolittle looks and sounds stunning in 4K but no amount of perfected animal CG can fix this faux Welsh dubbed mess.

    Sonic the Hedgehog 4K Blu-ray Review

    by Cas Harlow
    Sonic the Hedgehog 4K Blu-ray Review
    Sonic gets a big screen makeover in this energetic romp, which is a little like a PG Quicksilver solo movie, and looks stunning in native 4K with Dolby Vision and Atmos.

    Days of Thunder 4K Blu-ray Review

    by Cas Harlow
    Days of Thunder 4K Blu-ray Review
    Cheesy and over the top, Cruise's Top-Gun-with-cars is still an absolute blast of a guilty pleasure, with some of the best race sequences of all time, looking and sounding better than ever in native 4K with Dolby Vision and Atmos.

    Onward 4K Blu-ray Review
    An unexpectedly touching father-son(s) story, Disney/Pixar once again hit your heart hard with this rocking ode to fantasy role playing games that enjoys a particularly fun, boisterous turn from Chris Pratt.

    A Beautiful Day in the Neighbourhood Blu-ray Review
    Tom Hanks earns himself another Oscar Nomination, in a considered although hardly revealing role, for a thoughtful sideways biopic of American icon Fred Rogers.

    The Iron Mask Blu-ray Review

    by Cas Harlow
    The Iron Mask Blu-ray Review
    Arnie and Jackie Chan reteam for this low budget messy fantasy romp that means well, and wouldn't have been out of place in Jackie's earlier catalogue, but could do with a lot less out-of-sync ADR and a lot more refinement for a 2020 audience.

    Bloodshot 4K Blu-ray Review

    by Cas Harlow
    Bloodshot 4K Blu-ray Review
    The world's first self-proclaimed multicultural megastar tanks another leading vehicle, cementing the notion that only his ensemble Fast and Furious films work. However, Bloodshot is still a watchable - if ironically bloodless - comic book actioner and certainly looks and sounds tremendous in 4K with Atmos.

    Bad Boys For Life 4K Blu-ray Review

    by Cas Harlow
    Bad Boys For Life 4K Blu-ray Review
    Somehow spanning a quarter-century, the Bad Boys franchise survives the loss of Michael Bay, and impossibly endures the protracted delays since the last chapter, with the boys making a welcome return, and the actioner impressive in 4K.

    1917 4K Blu-ray Review
    An undeniable technical feat, Sam Mendes' quest for sound, fury and the impression of single-take continuity overshadows all else, leading to an audiovisually stunning native 4K release with Dolby Vision and Atmos.

    The Boys Season 1 Blu-ray Review
    Preacher's Seth Rogen/Evan Goldberg duo bring Garth Ennis' extremely graphic comic to life, putting a very dark spin on life with superheroes who are anything but, and landing on Blu-ray for those who didn't catch it on Amazon.

    by Cas Harlow
    Rogue One: A Star Wars Story 4K Blu-ray Review
    One of the best Star Wars films of all time, Rogue One reworked The Dirty Dozen to sublime effect, finally giving this universe a much-needed War movie, and exploding onto 4K with a superb native 4K presentation and Dolby Atmos, albeit currently only in the US.

    The Gentlemen 4K Blu-ray Review

    by Cas Harlow
    The Gentlemen 4K Blu-ray Review
    Guy Ritchie's latest is less Lock Stock and more Knives Out; a gangster whodunit that's not quite as clever as it thinks it is, but is a perfectly engaging crime flick which looks suitably dapper in 4K.

    Star Wars: Episode VIII – The Last Jedi Ultra HD Blu-ray Review

    by Cas Harlow
    Star Wars: Episode VIII – The Last Jedi Ultra HD Blu-ray Review
    Star Wars The Last Jedi, Rian Johnson's controversial and divisive follow-up to the much safer The Force Awakens, is a bloated combination of spectacular setpieces and monumental missteps that stuns in 4K.

    Star Wars: Episode IX - The Rise of Skywalker 4K Blu-ray Review
    J.J. Abrams contrives to conclude Disney's trilogy in George Lucas' universe, rounding out an up-and-down 9-film series in a scattershot approach to satisfying a demanding audience, and turning in a feature that, at the least, looks and sounds stunning in native 4K with Dolby Atmos.

    Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith 4K Blu-ray Review
    Finally, the prequels hit the mark with this darker final chapter that is packed with fateful, memorable confrontations, and is a contender for one of the most impressive discs in the 4K set.

    Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones 4K Blu-ray Review
    What could have been about the greatest untold era in Star Wars - the Clone Wars - was instead an anticlimactic prologue replete with head-smackingly bad romance and wooden delivery, but at least this 4K presentation impresses.

    by Cas Harlow
    Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace 4K Blu-ray Review
    Often derided as the worst entry, the latest flawed sequels might afford this a reassessment, with Lucas on visionary form in terms of world-building, and seminal moments like the saga-best Duel of the Fates, although a messy 4K upgrade is hardly going to help win you over.

    Jumanji: The Next Level 4K Blu-ray Review
    After the surprisingly hilarious and innovative Welcome to the Jungle, this sequel capitalises on its two Dannys - Glover and DeVito - for more hilarity and looks and sounds amazing in 4K with Atmos.

    Six long years later and this sequel proves worth the wait - not quite matching the wonder of the first but providing a magical new adventure nonetheless, and looking and sounding absolutely stunning in 4K with Atmos.

    Doctor Sleep 4K Blu-ray Review
    40 years after The Shining, Doctor Sleep delivers the impossible: a superbly atmospheric and disconcertingly creepy sequel to the 1980 classic and also an adaptation of King's sequel to the original book, earning a spectacular 4K release and a three hour director's cut, albeit not in 4K.
