    The Purge: Election Year Blu-ray Review

    The Purge: Election Year rounds out a trilogy which has gone from strength to strength, delivering a politically-infused thriller leagues ahead of its home invasion horror origins.

    Agent Carter Season 2 Blu-ray Review

    Whilst Agent Carter's short-lived Marvel prequel series goes out with less of a bang and more of a whimper, at least it does so in glamorous 40s Hollywood style.

    Mining its own back-catalogue for revisions and remakes, Disney revisits Pete's Dragon to wonderfully homely effect, and gives us another demo Blu-ray release.

    The Transformers: The Movie Blu-ray Review

    Despite the commercial decisions dictating its plot twists, this has far more heart than anything Michael Bay has directed, earning a much-deserved 30th Anniversary Blu-ray release.

    Finding Dory Blu-ray Review

    Finding Dory doesn't quite find the magic of the original but does find its way eventually and certainly makes for a demo 2D/3D release.

    Preacher: Season 1 Blu-ray Review

    An astounding, outstanding vision of a near-unfilmable graphic novel series, Preacher receives a much-deserved, lavish steelbook Blu-ray release.

    Captain America: Civil War Blu-ray Review

    If you thought Winter Soldier changed the shape of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, wait until you see the Blu-ray release of Civil War.

    The Jungle Book Blu-ray Review

    Jon Favreau's live action vision of the original Kipling tale is certainly a labour of love, marrying visual majesty with impassioned performances, imbued with the same magic that made...

    The Huntsman: Winter's War Blu-ray Review

    Using a 300: Rise of an Empire template, Winter's War adopts a prequel/sequel approach to continuing the story from Snow White and the Huntsman.

    Batman: The Killing Joke Blu-ray Review

    Alan Moore’s 28 year old one-shot, The Killing Joke, is arguably the best Joker-centric graphic novel ever published, but it was never long enough to be adapted into a feature film.

    Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice - Ultimate Cut Blu-ray Review

    There’s something undeniably seminal about pairing up DC’s two biggest hitters and even if the Ultimate Cut doesn't smooth out all the myriad flaws, this is an impressive Blu-ray release...

    Zootropolis Blu-ray Review

    Title-changes aside, this is another great effort from Disney, delivering smart laughs and colourful but clever chaos and once again hitting home with the young and old. And the...

    Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan Blu-ray Review

    Not just the greatest Star Trek movie, The Wrath of Khan is arguably one of the greatest movies of all time, and this new Blu-ray release does it justice.

    London Has Fallen Blu-ray Review

    The sequel to Olympus Has Fallen fails to even deliver retro 80s-style one-man-army action in a world of shifting geo-political landscapes. At least the Blu-ray is solid, even if there...

    Deadpool Steelbook Blu-ray Review

    Wild, witty, brash and bloody, Deadpool is a real labour of love brought to marvelous life by long-term fanboy Ryan Reynolds and delivered up on a tremendous Blu-ray release.

    Independence Day 20th Anniversary Blu-ray Review

    Twenty years on we return to the 1996 hit ID4, which arrives on UK Blu-ray with an impressive 4K-remastered dual-cut 2-disc feature-packed release.

    Creed Blu-ray Review

    A rare and elusive remake/reboot/spin-off which not only stays faithful to its legacy but also forges its own compelling path, Creed could very well be the start of its own memorable...

    The Hateful Eight Blu-ray Review

    Engaging but over-indulgent, Tarantino's foray into duplicitous murder mystery hooks you in the build-up, but doesn't deliver in its pay-off. Thankfully it impresses in every other...

    Ip Man 3 Blu-ray Review

    In what may well be his last martial arts-centric lead role, legendary Hong Kong action star Donnie Yen returns to one of his most memorable characters, that of Bruce Lee’s mentor, Ip Man.

    The Color of Money Blu-ray Review

    Scorsese’s 1986 sequel to The Hustler may be a highlight in the latter half of Newman’s celebrated career but this Blu-ray steelbook release is a disappointment.

    Crimson Peak Blu-ray Review

    Crimson Peak blends ghosts, horror and romance but fails to excel beyond its lavish gothic trappings. Still, the Blu-ray disc is largely excellent and even includes a DTS:X soundtrack.

    Macbeth Blu-ray Review

    Stylish and atmospheric, yet eminently faithful to the original text, Justin Kurzel’s sophomore mastering of the classic Shakespeare tragedy Macbeth is an accomplished, resonant piece.
