A ‘Baz Luhrmann’ film in every sense of the word, the Australian master of gaudy excess dives with gusto into the legend of Elvis Aaron Presley and delivers an experience for the senses befitting of them both.
Jurassic World Dominion Extended Edition 4K Blu-ray Review
by Cas Harlow
Improbably managing to both be worse than the last entry, and waste the return of the original cast, Dominion is shot and edited so incompetently you might find it unintentionally amusing, though that's still not worth 161 minutes of your waking life.
Eureka's first foray into 4K is Jackie Chan's classic Police Story Trilogy, boasting stunning native 4K/DV presentations, and marking the first time that Supercop has been released in the UK in a high def format.
Monty Python’s final messy cinematic masterpiece comes to 4K with songs about sperm, Christmas, all manner of male genitalia and the universe itself, given a new lease of life thanks to its amusingly unnecessary DTS:X soundtrack...
From Antonioni to Chaplin, post war Japanese police procedural to a rain-swept Gotham and a much-lauded crime epic, a Sidney Poitier western to a harrowing gut punch of a classic Vietnam war documentary, this month’s releases will no doubt offer a little bit of everything to everyone. ALSO - Competitions for EIGHT of them!
A year after the first four came to UHD, we finally get the last two original Star Trek movies, with The Final Frontier comfortably the weakest of the lot, but also arguably the one showing the biggest upgrade in native 4K with Dolby Vision.
88 Films makes its 4K bow in style, serving up some of the finest martial arts captured on film in the forgotten Mark Dacascos gem, Drive, gifting it a native 4K DV HDR presentation and stomping Atmos track and shining up all the trashy 90's action very nicely indeed.
Alex "Ex Machina" Garland serves up his third movie and it'll be divisive at best, delivering a first half of staggering trademark tension and a second half of symbolic hammer blows that build in indulgence to grotesque anticlimax.
Hammer, Cannibals and Man-Eating Space Brains sees August's release schedule seemingly warming up for this year’s Halloween. But there’s plenty to offer those non-horror fans out there this month as gritty Italian socio-realism, hard-boiled noir and amusing cowboy fare are also served up for our delicious consumption… UPDATED with competitions for NINE Blu-rays!
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!
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?
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.
Robert Eggers’ staggeringly brave and atmospheric debut remains an unrelenting and provocative force of purest folk horror. But as one of Second Sight’s new and expensive, and now long delayed, 4K limited Editions, how does it stack up in terms of a value-for-money upgrade?
Violently unforgiving, and relentlessly dark, Robert "The VVitch" Eggers' small scale revenger enjoys bursts of well-staged Berserker brutality, and a LOT of raging, mostly coming from the beast that ate Alexander Skarsgård.
Horror legend Dario Argento returned to the giallo after his supernatural dalliances and serves up one of his most celebrated thrillers, one that contains a certain Mr Tarantino’s favourite on-screen death scene of all time. And it’s back in a ubiquitous and gloriously lavish 4K set from Arrow.
