    The Driver 4K Blu-ray Review

    by Cas Harlow
    The Driver 4K Blu-ray Review
    It certainly wasn't just the name that led people to suspect that Nicolas Winding Refn's 2011 masterpiece, Drive, may have been inspired by Walter Hill's ultra-cool neo-noir, gifted a 4K restoration by Studiocanal.

    by Mark Costello
    Casque d'Or 4K Blu-ray Review
    Jacques Becker’s cult classic that influenced so many of the French New Wave directors that followed in his footsteps is given a new 4K restoration thanks to Studiocanal… but it seems they forgot to include one teeny, tiny, but all-important element…

    Orphan: First Kill 4K Blu-ray Review

    by Mark Costello
    Orphan: First Kill 4K Blu-ray Review
    Ignoring any sense of trying to hide the insanely stupid but gloriously brilliant twist of the first film, this decade-too-late prequel to the bonkers ‘Orphan’ instead tries to out-gonzo it. And goddamn it, it almost succeeds…

    by Cas Harlow
    Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Review
    Kevin Reynolds' 1991 Box Office hit is a rip-roaring old school action adventure with prime Costner, prime Rickman and prime Freeman tearing up the screen, and Arrow's lavish set doing them justice in 4K.

    The War of the Worlds & When Worlds Collide 4K Blu-ray Review
    No one would have believed in the early 21st century, how 4K Blu-rays would be watched keenly and closely, by cool and envious eyes, with a view to taking over the world, and slowly and surely they drew their graphs against us

    The Wolf of Wall Street 4K Blu-ray Review

    by Mark Costello
    The Wolf of Wall Street 4K Blu-ray Review
    Martin Scorsese’s glorious grotesquery of 80's excess still packs a massive punch thanks to a powerhouse turn from muse Leonardo DiCaprio and a sense of hedonistic revelry that matches its subject beautifully. And now on a 2160p disc from Arrow that shows its paltry 1080p cousin how it should be done...

    Winning 8 of its 13 Oscar nominations, including Best Picture, Best Director and Best Adapted Screenplay, Fred Zinnemann's 1953 adaptation of James Jones' classic novel is a stark early reflection of messy military mayhem on the eve of war, and a worthy entry in Volume 3 of the 4K Columbia Classics Collection.

    The first - and arguably least - of three successive social race & relations features the legendary Sidney Poitier embarked upon, this role-reversal to his earlier Blackboard Jungle, and precursor to Dangerous Minds is a quaint and well-meaning fairy tale that only Poitier could steer, included in Volume 3 of the 4K Columbia Classics Collection.

    Scream 2 4K Blu-ray Review

    by Mark Costello
    Scream 2 4K Blu-ray Review
    Only Wes Craven and Kevin Williamson at the absolute height of their powers could have conjured up a horror sequel that worked as both a skewering of the notion of reruns and retreads yet in some ways, not only equals but surpasses its originator... and Paramount, in an unironic twist, also delivers yet another stellar 4K re-release that corrects all the horrible digital problems of the first one…

    One of the best blockbusters in years, one of the best sequels of all time, and - nostalgia notwithstanding - not only a better follow-up than anybody could have possibly hoped for, but arguably the better film too. And now... the best 4K release of the year.

    Raw Deal 4K Blu-ray Review

    by Mark Costello
    Raw Deal 4K Blu-ray Review
    Sandwiched awkwardly between perennial cinematic masterpieces Commando and Predator, John Irvin’s Raw Deal half-heartedly tries to convince that Austrian man mountain Arnold Schwarzenegger can go undercover in an organised crime family. But you just can’t keep a good Arnold down. Or even a relatively poor one... especially not in 4K.

    Highlander 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Review
    Russell Mulcahy’s music video writ large transcends every part of its subjectively flawed DNA to become and remain an all-time classic. And Studiocanal do it true justice with this glorious 4K set that thankfully leaves its yellow and teal leanings where they belong… the '90s.

    Bram Stoker's Dracula 30th Anniversary 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Review
    Lavish and luxurious, Coppola's magnificent ode to Bram Stoker's epistolary novel is the auteur's last great feature, a flawed but fabulous fable that earns a curiously convenient 30th Anniversary 4K reissue with added Dolby Vision.

    by Tom Davies
    Take Back the Night Movie Review
    Both admirably scrappy and disappointingly scrappy, Gia Elliot's film walks a similar route of hyper-allegory as Jordan Peele's US but falls short when it comes to the nitty gritty.

    Where the Crawdads Sing Movie Review
    Delia Owens' novel makes for Olivia Newman's sophomore directorial effort, giving Normal People's Daisy Edgar-Jones another deserved lead vehicle, but playing it too safe, clean, whimsical and ultimately YA for its own good.
