Gone Girl DVD review

Gone Girl DVD review

For anyone that hasn’t seen Gone Girl as of yet, you’re in for a tense and thrilling treat of a movie that shows the darker side of a troubled marriage. It makes for an edge-of-your-seat evening movie night in, making it arguably a better film to watch on DVD from the relative comforts of home(…)

Life After Beth DVD review

Life After Beth DVD review

We don’t normally go in for effusive introductions to movie reviews, but for the Life After Beth DVD we’re willing to make an exception thanks to its indie-style, left field comedy approach zombie movies. It doesn’t go out of its way to go after a wide catchment area as there will be plenty of people(…)

Edge Of Tomorrow DVD review

Edge Of Tomorrow DVD review

We’ll inevitably get into the detail of what makes Edge Of Tomorrow such a cool sci-fi film in the rest of our DVD review, but the short answer is that it locks you in for a crazy ride of an action adventure and doesn’t let you flag until the epic final scenes. We’re always a(…)

Let’s Be Cops DVD, Blu-ray and Digital Download review

Let’s Be Cops DVD, Blu-ray and Digital Download review

Having high expectations for a comedy action movie can often be a misguided approach to cinema going, which is why films like Let’s Be Cops can sometimes be overlooked. However, in this case you should probably lift your hopes and get it in on either DVD, Blu-ray or digital download, because it’s a genuine blast(…)

22 Jump Street DVD review

22 Jump Street DVD review

It was never going to be easy for Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum to follow up on the success of the 21 Jump Street film with a sequel, but in 22 Jump Street they managed to hit on enough comedy action gold for it to stand once again as one of the funniest films of(…)

Maleficent DVD review

Maleficent DVD review

Despite the fact that the release of Maleficent came with it a whole lot of hype and high expectations, the film itself sort of falls short on delivering the promise of a genuinely inspired fantasy action film. It’s not that the film is terrible as such, it’s just that it isn’t the special movie that(…)

21 Jump Street DVD review

21 Jump Street DVD review

For some reason, we managed to miss watching 21 Jump Street when it was released both at the cinema and DVD back in 2012, but having finally gotten around to catching up – thanks largely to the release of 22 Jump Street earlier in 2014 – we can say it’s well worth watching. While it’s(…)

In Time DVD review

In Time DVD review

Justin Timberlake (Bad Teacher) hasn’t really had a sci-fi flick to boast about in the past, but in Andrew Niccol’s dystopian thriller In Time, he’s been given a unique opportunity to test out his acting skills in an imagined future in which time literally is money. Starring alongside Cillian Murphy (Tron: Legacy) and Amanda Seyfried(…)

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 DVD review

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 DVD review

With the relative success of the first movie in the Marc Webb directed reboot of the franchise, there was a whole lot of hope and anticipation wrapped into the run up to the release of The Amazing Spider-Man 2. However, the bad news is that the film fails to deliver on so many levels that(…)

Captain America: The Winter Soldier DVD review

Captain America: The Winter Soldier DVD review

We’ve often considered the work of Marvel to be one of but a small number of mainstream fiction to effectively demonstrate the concept of true morality. By this we mean goodness without the goal of a pass into the afterlife or entry into a girl’s affections/pants, so when we do find it we can’t help(…)
