WWE: Wrestling's Greatest Factions [Blu-ray] <b>Blu-ray</b> ~ Hulk Hogan
This is another strange release from WWE. Sounds like a classic on paper - chuck the greatest factions in wrestling history together on a bumper Blu Ray then sit back and enjoy the magic. It doesn't quite pan out like that though - there's still much to enjoy on here but due to overcrowding and some strange choices, it's not the 5 star beauty it could be. Perhaps 3 1/2 stars is actually about right, there's fun to be had but there's little here that's absolutely essential. I would've preferred less factions covered and more action from the real big boys.

4.0 out of 5 stars Heart warming/breaking, 20 Sep 2014

Will Forte (almost as good) plays his son David, who after various efforts to prevent Woody from hiking up the highway decides to drive them across country, essentially so… Read more

The Stag [DVD] DVD ~ Andrew Scott
The Stags got enough going for it to make it worth a watch - an eclectic cast of characters and some ridiculous situations raise a fair few chuckles and the odd guffaw.

The set up is quick and effective - Fionnan is about to get married and against his better judgement gets roped into a stag trip in the great Irish outdoors with a few of his best buds and one very uninvited guest.Things don't go to plan though (obviously) and various hi-jinks follow - fires, flesh hungry dogs, gun toting locals, loss of clothes and more.

The cast are good, largely led by Andrew Scott (from TV's Sherlock) and Peter McDonald as "The Machine", the previously mentioned uninvited… Read more
