5.0 out of 5 stars Nazi Propaganda, 20 Sept. 2017
Bought them as a gift for my neighbour Mr Purdie (81) and he already had them.
He did like the swastika soles though and said they'll look good on display (soles up)in his museum of Nazi memorabilia (dungeon beneath his house)

3.0 out of 5 stars Difficult Second Album (now on Blu Ray), 5 Sept. 2017
GOTG V2 takes everything you love about the first film and ramps it up to the point where its slightly irritating. It also features an absolute shed-load of exposition in the dialogue and the first half features next to no plot. The humour this time round misses the mark consistently (most of the time at the expense of the drama) and the visuals bounce between unique and downright ugly. Obviously CGI is required in this type of film, but it honestly reminded me of the Star Wars prequels at times and that is never a compliment. The soundtrack is excellent, definitely as good as Volume 1.

This Blu Ray has an absolutely stunning transfer, easily one of the best since the MCU Blu Rays started. It is insanely well detailed, razor sharp with fantastic colours.
The bonus features consist of 37 minutes of documentaries covering soundtrack, effects, cast, story (Eng, Span and Por subtitles)
A gag reel, deleted scenes, a James Gunn audio commentary and 'Guardians Infoerno' music video featuring David Hasselhoff.
The disc is region free and contains English, Spanish and Portugese subtitles.

3.0 out of 5 stars 2017 Blu Ray Release Review, 27 Aug. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This 2017 Arrow Blu Ray contains disc 1 of their 2013 previous deluxe release only.
It comes in a standard clear Amaray case and has a reversible sleeve(reverse of which is the original 'Breakfast Club' style poster)
You get nothing new here that wasn't available on the previous version.

The transfer itself is hit or miss for me, with some unforgivable grain in places.
The film itself starts off strong but descends into loud, unfunny and poorly made.

If you own the 2013 Arrow release, you DON'T need this. If you DON'T own the 2013 Arrow release, you,eh, STILL don't need this!

The features consist of the below
High Definition Blu-ray (1080p) presentation from a digital transfer supervised by Director of Photography Richard Kooris
Optional English SDH subtitles for the deaf and hard of hearing
Audio commentary with director and co-writer Tobe Hooper, moderated by David Gregory
Audio commentary with stars Bill Moseley, Caroline Williams and special-effects legend Tom Savini, moderated by Michael Felsher
It Runs in the Family A 6 part documentary looking at the genesis, making-of and enduring appeal of Hooper s film. With interviews including star Bill Johnson, co-writer L. M. Kit Carson, Richard Kooris, Bill Moseley, Caroline Williams, Tom Savini, Production Designer Cary White and more - RUNS 87 MINUTES TOTAL
Alternate Opening sequence with different musical score
Deleted scenes
Still Feelin' the Buzz - Interview with horror expert Stephen Thrower, author of Nightmare USA - RUNS 28 MINUTES TOTAL

3.0 out of 5 stars Fletch Lives On Blu Ray, 6 Jun. 2017
Fletch Lives is a very likeable, easily watched yet disappointing sequel to the original classic. The blu ray is unexpected but as bare bone as you can get. Nice cover with original poster, really solid transfer and decent sound, but no features, no subtitles and no audio options. You put this disc in and press play or scene selection. Still thought, its Fletch Lives first separate release in the UK since VHS, and it looks much better than it or the DVD from the double pack. Not worth £14.99. Closer to £8.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Very Strong Season, Another Nice DVD Boxset, 12 Nov. 2016
I love how consistent all 19 Seasons of South Park have been on DVD, its turned into a great collection over the years.
Packaging is the same as always, a cardboard sleeve with a cardboard fold out cover. Its slimmer, like Season 17 and 18, due to being a 2 disc set as opposed to the previous 16 seasons having 3 discs.
You get 5 episodes on each disc. Each episode has English, German and Dutch subtitles available. Each episode also has English and German audio.

Disc one also has deleted scenes, a trailer for the upcoming video game and a new feature. On the previous boxsets, each episode has a mini commentary at the start of each episode from Matt and Trey. This season has a 28 minute commentary covering the season as a (fractured but) whole. I personally preferred watching each episode, then watching the start again immediately after with commentary but this new way of presenting the commentary is still worth your time.

The episodes themselves are superb. I think South Park hit a massive slump from season 14 - 17. I think the shorter seasons and the fact that each episode of the season is now connected has completely reinvigorated the series. Where the likes of The Simpsons and Family Guy have become a struggle for me to watch, Im delighted that South Park is still around to give me genuine and consistent laughs.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's A Wonderful Life 2016 Platinum Anniversary Edition Blu Ray, 11 Nov. 2016
It's A Wonderful Life [Blu-ray] [2016]

It's A Wonderful Life is in my opinion one of the greatest films ever made.
This 2016 Blu Ray release offers nothing new that I can see. (Other than new but very looking cover art)
It comes in a standard blue Amaray case and features nothing fancy like posters or art-cards from previous releases.
If you don't already own this film on Blu Ray, It offers a stunningly detailed transfer and a theatrical trailer along with an admittedly well done colorized version of the film. (which shall remain un-watched until the day I die)

Both versions of the film have 2.0 mono sound, full frame presentation and English subtitles.

So basically, if you've never owned this film on Blu Ray I highly recommend it. If you already own it, you almost certainly have a better presented Blu Ray.
Considering the packaging states its a Platinum Anniversary Edition, I don't see anything new or special on offer here, which is disappointing.

3.0 out of 5 stars Poor Release, Decent Little film, 4 Nov. 2016
This review is from: Elvis & Nixon [DVD] (DVD)
Elvis And Nixon is a very slight film and has a seriously miscast Michael Shannon as the King, but I couldn't help but like it.
Its a warm, funny and sweet little film. Minus the credits the film runs a brisk 78 minutes but I found it very likable and never boring, and it has a solid supporting cast.
Give it a shot, it wont take up much of your time and its overall quite a good natured, albeit little, story.
There are no Elvis songs on the soundtrack which is a shame, but I'd say its due to the films small budget and the high licensing fees for The King's tracks.

DVD only release in the UK. Picture quality is average - I would have appreciated a Blu Ray version.
DVD comes with a cardboard slipcase. The disc has English subtitles and is presented in 2.40:1 widescreen. There are no bonus features but its a new release for £7 so it was OK value.

3.0 out of 5 stars Marvel At Its Most Middle Of The Road, 3 Nov. 2016
I was looking forward to Doctor Strange but very early on I felt like this is Marvel on autopilot.
Im a huge MCU fan but there have been blips, and I consider Doctor Strange very nearly one of them.
Benedict is excellent as the title character. Tilda Swinton is great as The Ancient One. Everybody else is simply 'there'
The villain is severely underwritten and underwhelming. The special effects are very imaginative but the film itself is not.
The pacing is odd as the first hour is quite plodding but everything else feels choppy or rushed. It does have one of the better scores in the MCU, I thought it was more memorable than normal.
I simply did not get invested in this film. It feels like 'been there done that' and this film offers exactly zero surprises.

Doctor Strange is sadly a lesser entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It ranks slightly above Iron Man 2 and Thor 2 but thats pretty much it.
I really am looking forward to seeing the character again though, in Infinity Wars.
Poor villain - check
Awkward jokes - check
Amazing visuals - check
Origin story - check
Disappointing finale - check
