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.
The Sony A8 is the company's latest 4K OLED TV that has Dolby Atmos, Dolby Vision, HDR10, HLG (Hybrid Log-Gamma) and now includes X-Motion Clarity 120Hz Black Frame Insertion, IMAX Enhanced certification and Netflix Calibrated mode. So it has everything, bar the Master Series title...
The Arcam AVR30 AV receiver finally arrives for review with seven channels of built-in Class G amplification and 9.1.6-channel processing. There's Dolby Atmos, DTS:X IMAX Enhanced and Auro-3D decoding, along with eARC, built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, and support for Apple AirPlay 2 and Google Chromecast. But was it worth the wait?
I'm Thinking of Ending Things (Netflix) Movie Review

Charlie Kaufman returns with an adaptation of Iain Reid's mind and genre-bending novel and it's his most assured directorial effort yet. A film about wanting to break up with someone...Sort of...Not really.

by Andy Bassett
