Avengers meets Star Wars for some Indy-flavoured full-throttle sci-fi-western-fantasy hi-jinks in the vein of Whedon’s Serenity. Still one of the biggest surprises in the MCU pantheon, Guardians finally goes 4K.
Six long years later and this sequel proves worth the wait - not quite matching the wonder of the first but providing a magical new adventure nonetheless, and looking and sounding absolutely stunning in 4K with Atmos.
Apple TV+'s first movie sees Anthony Mackie and Samuel L. Jackson attempt to right some wrongs in backwards 60s Texas, just about balancing sobering true-tale drama with a more frivolous heist movie tempo.
Released on Early Access Premium Rental, GLOW's Betty Gilpin has a mad blast channelling Jodie Comer in Killing Eve in this satirical action comedy horror Trump-trumping reworking of Hard Target / The Most Dangerous Game.
Amazon's The Professor and the Madman Movie Review
by Cas Harlow
Amazon picks up the messy, shot-in-2016 film whose tale of the impossible task of bringing the Oxford English Dictionary into existence is ironically mirrored by the film's own 20 years of production woes.
Westworld Season 3: The New World TV Show Premiere Review
by Cas Harlow

40 years after The Shining, Doctor Sleep delivers the impossible: a superbly atmospheric and disconcertingly creepy sequel to the 1980 classic and also an adaptation of King's sequel to the original book, earning a spectacular 4K release and a three hour director's cut, albeit not in 4K.
With all the lowered expectations from previously being burned, Dark Fate should come as a mostly pleasant surprise; a competent, tense and aggressive Terminator sequel, and one which looks stunning and sounds thunderous in 4K with Atmos.
Netflix returns for a second season of one of their strongest sci-fi properties, adapting further tales of re-sleeved rebel warrior Takeshi Kovacs, this time played by Falcon's Anthony Mackie, uncovering more mysteries in the future-tech dystopian Blade Runner-esque landscape.
Whilst an unexpected but pleasant surprise to have Angelina Jolie's Maleficent back, Mistress of Evil loses a little bit of its dark magic as it muddles a promising premise, although it looks and sounds great in 4K with Atmos.
More of a Young Adult 'horror' in the vein of Netflix's Lost in Space, rather than Netflix's Haunting of Hill House, this graphic novel adaptation is slick, with some nice ideas, but feels a little watered down and padded out nonetheless.
