The third second film in the franchise (keep up at the back) continues directly on from a burning and left-for-dead Michael. Is anyone surprised that he doesn’t die? Is anyone surprised that this isn’t as good as the previous film?
The inscrutable and enigmatic, yet strangely accessible Mulholland Drive from David Lynch gets a spectacular 4K upgrade in typically lavish style from Studiocanal, just in time for the film's 20th anniversary

Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings 4K Blu-ray Review
by Cas Harlow
Whilst Eternals flounders at the Big Screen, Marvel's ode to Wuxia, Shang-Chi, smashes down onto home formats, not only on 4K disc, but actually - arguably more impressively - in IMAX Enhanced 4KDV on Disney+.
James Gunn's sharply witty, deliciously stylish and - above all else - utterly fun sequel/reboot is everything we could want from a Suicide Squad movie, and looks and sounds tremendous in native 4KDV with Atmos.
One of Willis' rare nuanced performances, and Shyamalan's now increasingly rare gems, Unbreakable is an impressively atypical superhero thriller gifted a 4K release which struggles to top Disney+'s 4K DV/DA streaming version.
Reynolds is tolerably committed, Comer is great, and Free Guy is a surprisingly fun blast of sandbox sci-fi mayhem which makes for an interesting 4K disc release when compared to Disney+'s streaming alternative.
Part swan-song, part origin story - for not one but two characters - and all quirky family drama, Marvel's unsurprisingly action-packed Big Screen return enjoys a kooky blend of fun, thrilling exploits.
