Burton and Taylor (2013)

Cover Art This is a concentrated look at just a few months in the tempestuous Burton / Taylor relationship. The twice married and twice divorced pair had reunited for a play on Broadway, and despite the often rowdy slanging matches and wars of temperament, we are ultimately touched and moved by the sensitivity these two souls felt for one another. Helena Bonham Carter and Dominic West are phenomenal. Very good transfer - and widescreen 2.35:1. . Sponsored by Disk Doctor.

Peter Gabriel-Back to Front Live in London (Blu-ray) (2014)
Mike B

Peter Gabriel has been around for a long time, but his celebratory tour marking 25 years since release of the album So proves that he is still going strong. This recording at the O2 arena in London is an absolute cracker with supurb audio & video and imaginative staging. . Sponsored by Fetch.

Jack the Ripper (Shock) (1988)
Ray N

This version of Jack the Ripper is a superior two part drama made for Thames Television in 1988. It has good production values and a stellar cast headed by Michael Caine. In 1888 there were no fingerprints or forensics and no one was tried for the murders in Whitechapel; but what is revealed here is who the producers believe was Jack the Ripper. .

Pompeii (Blu-ray 3D) (2014)

Silly but Spectacular! The mountain explodes impressively wiping out all the bad actors, dodgy dialogue and miscast romance. Great audio and video. . Sponsored by Disk Doctor.

Tue 29.7.14
Tokarev (Blu-ray) (2014)
Ray N

Tokarev, staring Nicolas Cage in a return to form, is one of the better thrillers I have watched this year. It is exciting, brutal, complex, well made and well-acted, with a plot that does not go where expected and a powerful ending. Pity about the aspect ratio though. . Sponsored by Atomic Movies.

Mon 28.7.14
Out of the Furnace (2013)

Here is a dark, bleak and brutal little gem. Reminiscent of old Warners black and white family/crime dramas, this sombre and gritty film glitters with brilliant execution. The direction, filming and - above all - performances are sensational. This is one of the films of the year. No extras! Shame! . Sponsored by Atlantic DVD.
