We present our 2020 awards for the very best TVs of the year over a number of categories. This year has been difficult for us all, but we have also seen some excellent new TV models with some of the best picture quality we have seen yet, so let's announce the winners...
Kurt Russell returns for a well-meaning, bigger budget, but slightly less endearing follow-up to last year's surprisingly enjoyable Christmas Chronicles, which should at least remind us that the Holidays are coming.
Paul Verhoeven's classic 1990 sci-fi action-thriller, Total Recall, is one of Schwarzenegger's all-time best movies, earning itself a stunning native 4K release courtesy of Studiocanal, complete with Dolby Vision and Atmos.
The MP-40 is the smaller venue based AV Processor from Lyngdorf with 12-channels of decoding for Dolby Atmos, DTS:X and Auro 3D, along with RoomPerfect calibration and full system integration. It offers exactly the same performance as the MP-60 but in a smaller package, so just how good is it?
Jeb 'Die Hard' Stuart's new project for Netflix is the story of one of the Second World War's most diverse units and its harrowing and brutal 500 day trek from Sicily to Dachau. But does its live action/animation blend work?
Launched in time for the fireworks - Election or otherwise - the Wachowskis' follow-up to The Matrix trilogy, an adaptation of Alan Moore's seminal, politically-infused dystopian thriller, earns an impressive native 4K release with Atmos.
Philips' 2020 flagship TV offers a stunning design, excellent image accuracy and video processing along with an Atmos speaker bar from Bowers & Wilkins. So is this the luxury TV you have been waiting on?
The Mandalorian Season 2 Premiere (Disney Plus) TV Show Review
by Cas Harlow
Rogue One notwithstanding, Jon Favreau's The Mandalorian is arguably one of the best Star Wars properties since the original trilogy, returning for a second season brimming with promise right from its excellent opening episode.
A fitting conclusion to a basically perfect trilogy, Back to the Future Part III goes wild in the Old West, and completes the new Ultimate Trilogy 4K Box Set, with easily the best native 4K Dolby Vision-enhanced video of the bunch.
Pearl Studios, the Chinese production company behind Abominable, teams up with Netflix Animation for its second movie, a familiar-feeling but no less engaging romp into Chinese mythology, which has more than a little Tron: Legacy-lite at its core.
One of the best sequels of all time, Back to the Future Part II doubles-down on the time travel hijinks, looking even more impressive than the first movie in 4K, with Dolby Vision and Atmos leaving it in the best shape it's ever been.
We take a look at the first-ever 48-inch CX OLED TV from LG to see if it can match the 55- and 65-inch versions for image quality. Plus, is this the perfect screen size for HDMI 2.1 gaming? Let's find out...
The Haunting of Bly Manor (Netflix) TV Show Review
by Tom Davies
Mike Flanagan steps back to produce the second season of his successful 'The Haunting of...' anthology. But between a poorly observed script and terminal lack of scares, it's unlikely to match the popularity of its predecessor.
More Mad Men-lite than For All Mankind, Disney+'s first and only non-Star Wars series of note - courtesy of National Geographic - is a visually lavish period piece embalmed in rousing, patriotic chords, but it feels like it may be a long ride with little new or interesting to add.
Twenty-eight films into their 4-film distribution deal with Adam Sandler, and Netflix churns out another harmless bit of all-star nonsense, repurposing a spin on Sandler's Waterboy character for this very mildly engaging stupidity.
Zack Snyder's stylish 2007 adaptation of Frank "Sin City" Miller's iconic Spartan graphic novel 300 gave us the definitive angry action man in Gerard Butler, and now charges onto the definitive 4K format with a thunderous new Atmos track.
Beating its way through a dual character study and psychological drama, Whiplash is a tremendous film which deservedly landed actor J. K. Simmons his first Oscar, now earning a 4K and Atmos upgrade from Sony.
Amazon recently launched a whole host of new hardware but for TV fans the standout announcement was the arrival of the next-gen Fire TV Stick and the Fire TV Stick Lite along with a redesigned Fire TV interface.
Netflix's franchise-in-the-making adaptation of the first book in Nancy Springer's Enola Holmes series affords us the teen-centric Sherlock movie nobody asked for, but also gives Millie Bobby Brown another opportunity to utterly shine.
The TCL 65C815K is a 65-inch edge-lit LED LCD TV which uses a 100Hz VA panel - is compatible with all the major HDR formats currently available - and features Freeview Play and Android TV. So is it the bargain it appears to be?
More American Horror Story than anything even tangentially related to One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, Ryan Murphy's Ratched is full of Bernard Herrmann's sound and Sarah Paulson's fury, but offers nothing new, and plenty old.
