    Lyngdorf MP-40 AV Processor Review

    by Phil Hinton
    Lyngdorf MP-40 AV Processor Review
    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?

    by Cas Harlow
    London Has Fallen 4K Blu-ray Review
    Making its 4K debut in a German trilogy, London Has Fallen gets the better presentation, even if it's the worse movie... although it does redeem itself somewhat on a lowered-expectations rewatch.

    Over the Moon (Netflix) Movie Review
    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.

    Borat: Subsequent Moviefilm (Amazon) Movie Review
    Reportedly secretly filmed during lockdown, Amazon drops the sequel to 2006's Borat, an unsurprisingly awkwardly funny farce which works best when it's taking stabs at Trump America.

    The Right Stuff (Disney+) TV Show Review
    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.
