Mythica: A Quest for Heroes (Blu-ray) (2014)
Mythica: A Quest for Heroes is the first film in a series of five sword / sorcery / quest films. It provides nothing even remotely new but it introduces the characters and the mythical world well, is fun and entertaining and sets up the remaining films of the series.

Hatchet for the Honeymoon (Rosso segno della follia, Il) (Blu-ray) (1970)
With their garish colours, noir lighting and camera gymnastics, the films of Italian giallo master Mario Bava are made for Blu-ray. Hatchet for the Honeymoon remains an entertaining horror film and, even unrestored, still looks pretty good over 40 years after being made.

London Has Fallen (Blu-ray) (2016)
Others are welcome to disagree, but I enjoyed the hell out of London Has Fallen. It's just my type of movie. Roadshow's release is respectable, with solid video and aggressive audio. Extras are in short supply, but this disc still comes recommended, all things considered.

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies (Blu-ray) (2016)
Some titles are self-explanatory: what is Pride and Prejudice and Zombies about? Why Jane Austen with zombies, of course. Yet, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies is good fun because plays its absurdist concept absolutely straight.
