    Spider-Man: Homecoming Ultra HD Blu-ray Review

    by Cas Harlow
    Spider-Man: Homecoming Ultra HD Blu-ray Review
    Burdened by the weight of previous film versions, Spider-Man: Homecoming still manages to tell a fresh new story, with decent characters and fluid integration into the MCU, and with a stellar 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray release.

    Beauty and the Beast Blu-ray Review

    by Cas Harlow
    Beauty and the Beast Blu-ray Review
    Disney's live-action retread of its classic animated feature Beauty and the Beast is a hit and miss affair that fails to compete with either the original or innovative live-action spin-offs like Maleficent.

    Innerspace Blu-ray Review

    by Cas Harlow
    Innerspace Blu-ray Review
    Joe Dante's fantastic sci-fi action comedy thriller is a timeless 80s classic alongside Back to the Future, making its UK Blu-ray bow here with a steelbook release.

    by Cas Harlow
    Bad Boys Steelbook Blu-ray Review
    Back when Smith, Lawrence and Bay were all happy to embrace unabashed, unrestrained fun without pretentious aspirations clouding the vision, we got Bad Boys.

    The Purge: Election Year Blu-ray Review

    by Cas Harlow
    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

    by Cas Harlow
    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.

    Pete's Dragon Blu-ray Review

    by Cas Harlow
    Pete's Dragon Blu-ray Review
    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

    by Cas Harlow
    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

    by Cas Harlow
    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

    by Cas Harlow
    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

    by Cas Harlow
    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 Disney's classic animation so beloved.

    The Huntsman: Winter's War Blu-ray Review

    by Cas Harlow
    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

    by Cas Harlow
    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

    by Cas Harlow
    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 for a milestone event film.

    Zootropolis Blu-ray Review

    by Cas Harlow
    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 Steelbook Blu-ray release is a stunner inside and out.

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

    by Cas Harlow
    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

    by Cas Harlow
    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 is no DTS:X track in the UK.

    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

    by Cas Harlow
    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 franchise, and it's Blu-ray release is a knockout.

    The Hateful Eight Blu-ray Review

    by Cas Harlow
    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 respect on Blu-ray.

    by Cas Harlow
    Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens Blu-ray Review
    Undoubtedly better than anybody could have ever expected, this resoundingly good reboot breathes new life into the Star Wars franchise, and Disney's Blu-ray release continues to impress as it hits UK shores.

    by Cas Harlow
    The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2 Blu-ray Review
    Although the flaws only further emphasise the fact that these two parts could have been combined into one, Mockingjay Part 2 remains a fitting enough conclusion to a solid franchise and this is a good, if not exceptional, release to close things out.

    The Good Dinosaur Blu-ray Review
    Blending a Land Before Time setting and theme with a typically innovative Pixar twist or two, their latest animated feature makes for a top tier Blu-ray release with superb video, audio and extras as well as an impressive steelbook package to boot.

    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.

    The Last Witch Hunter Blu-ray Review
    There’s some strong world-building here, so it's a shame to realise that the flawed efforts of the director and unrealistic enthusiasms of the star have probably killed this franchise before it even got started.

    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.

    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.

    Sicario Blu-ray Review
    Thrumming with a violent intensity, Denis Villeneuve’s latest mystery thriller pulls no punches in its assault on South American drug cartels, and this UK Blu-ray release pulls no punches with its presentation.

    Bad Boys II Blu-ray Review
    Bloated and blunt, Bay’s blockbuster sequel lost much of the freshness of the first outing but nevertheless proved that more from these Bad Boys was welcome. This Zavvi Exclusive Steelbook marks the only way to pick up the long-awaited film by itself on Blu-ray.

    Legend Blu-ray Review
    Despite providing not one, but two, striking central performances, even Tom Hardy's committed efforts can't quite make Legend a memorable gangster film, although its Atmos-enhanced Blu-ray release certainly makes a strong impression.

    by Cas Harlow
    Pixels Blu-ray Review
    Loud, ludicrous, brash, stupid, silly and strangely - unpretentiously - harmless fun. And with demo video and audio, and a striking, vibrant steelbook, not a bad result after all.
