    Rebel Moon - Part Two: The Scargiver (Netflix) Movie Review

    by Cas Harlow
    Rebel Moon - Part Two: The Scargiver (Netflix) Movie Review
    The out-of-focus-around-the-edges sequel that absolutely nobody sane has been eagerly anticipating lands, with every opportunity to hit the ground running after the introductory first instalment, but also the desire to do a cascade of slo-mo flashback origin stories instead. This is how we make it to SIX films, people.

    Ripley (Netflix) TV Show Review

    by Cas Harlow
    Ripley (Netflix) TV Show Review
    Pushing past the initially jarring black and white stylisation, Ripley gradually evolves into a lavishly impressive Hitchcockian Hannibal retelling of The Talented Mr. Ripley, and a juicy leading role for Andrew Scott.

    Fallout (Amazon) Premiere TV Show Review

    by Mark Costello
    Fallout (Amazon) Premiere TV Show Review
    The Apocalypse has never looked or sounded quite so funny, so sprawling, so fascinating or so beautifully designed as in Amazon’s new videogame adaptation that shows its peers exactly how to bring an epic sci-fi game franchise to the small screen…

    Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire (IMAX) Movie Review

    by Cas Harlow
    Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire (IMAX) Movie Review
    Hilariously OTT, Barbenzilla and Bumblekong's latest nonsense is another deliciously silly, visually extravagant excuse for a monster mash-up and bash-up, and is rather surprisingly... fun.

    True Lies 4K Blu-ray Review
    The other HD MIA Jim Cameron film finally makes its way to UK shores with possibly the most controversial 4K disc of recent times. However, what may be more controversial is that the intervening years simply haven’t been kind and the film itself is sadly nowhere near as much of a classic as we all remember it to be…

    Wish (Disney+) Movie Review

    by Cas Harlow
    Wish (Disney+) Movie Review
    Disney's Centennial celebration imagines up an entire origin story from the Studio's own theme music, weaving 100 years of nostalgia into its every fibre - right down to the classical animation style - but ironically failing to find any magic of its own.

    X-Men '97 (Disney+) Premiere TV Show Review
    With an all-in fan-service-only self-assuredness, ’97 takes a decision to appeal whole-heartedly to the Millennial nostalgia which holds the original show in such high regard, recreating the feel of a thirty-year-old show as closely as possible... but is this enough?

    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.
