Doug Liman and Tom Cruise’s fiercely intelligent and hugely entertaining sci-fi Groundhog Day remains one of the 21st century's most effortlessly entertaining blockbusters. And now it’s on 4K… bet they never saw that coming, did they? Oh… they did, huh!
The joint best film made by someone with the names ‘Paul’ and ‘Anderson’ finally gets a disc treatment worthy of its neo-cult classic status. Although there’s always something to be disappointed about... isn’t there?

Sonic the Hedgehog 2 4K Blu-ray Review
by Cas Harlow
After a fun, family-friendly start, Sonic earns a solid sequel, packed with new and returning fan-favourite characters and large scale chaos.
Sizzling with the electric chemistry from its two leads, Out of Sight is the best Clooney/Soderbergh collaboration, Jennifer Lopez's best role, and one of the best adaptations of cool crime writer Elmore Leonard's works, even if Kino Lorber's 4K release is NOT cool.
Robert Eggers’ staggeringly brave and atmospheric debut remains an unrelenting and provocative force of purest folk horror. But as one of Second Sight’s new and expensive, and now long delayed, 4K limited Editions, how does it stack up in terms of a value-for-money upgrade?
Violently unforgiving, and relentlessly dark, Robert "The VVitch" Eggers' small scale revenger enjoys bursts of well-staged Berserker brutality, and a LOT of raging, mostly coming from the beast that ate Alexander Skarsgård.
Horror legend Dario Argento returned to the giallo after his supernatural dalliances and serves up one of his most celebrated thrillers, one that contains a certain Mr Tarantino’s favourite on-screen death scene of all time. And it’s back in a ubiquitous and gloriously lavish 4K set from Arrow.
Stephen King’s anthology film bears all the hallmarks of the writer’s cinematic output at the time and remains a baffling set of stories that entertain almost by accident. And perhaps even more baffling, Studiocanal now grace us with a 4K release, which I’m confident to say no-one really was crying out for…
The movie that was adapted from a videogame that stole wholesale from a fistful of movies… the cycle is now complete, and cinema has actually started to eat itself with this damp squib of an actioner from Sony and their new PlayStation Productions.
Kathryn Bigelow's The Hurt Locker saw the director and her two young stars doing some of the best work of their careers, oft overlooked now, and never more so than with this elusive US 4K Best Buy Steelbook exclusive release.
Second time around does this new iteration of the Scream franchise no favours at all, with this 4K disc from Paramount going out of its way to remind you exactly what’s so wrong with the film itself...
Spider-Man: No Way Home 4K Dolby Vision Blu-ray Review
by Cas Harlow
Like a live action Into the Spider-Verse, No Way Home blows the doors open to the multiverse and ties up over two decades of Spidey adventures, with Sony's 4K Dolby Vision and Atmos release as spectacular as the titular character(s).
