The Law of Violence (La legge della violenza) (1969)
Ray N

The Law of Violence is a minor spaghetti western from 1969. It has a fabulous score by Stelvio Cipriani and is more a drama than an action spaghetti western, raising issues about hypocrisy, corruption, prejudice, violence and the rule of law that are not common in this genre. Pity about the incorrect aspect ratio though. . Sponsored by DeVoteD.

Samurai Warriors (Sengoku musou) (2015)
Ray N

16th Century Japan was a period of warring clans. Hideyoshi Toyotomi almost succeeded in bringing peace but his untimely death left the Toyotomi and Takugawa clans competing for the control of Japan. Samurai Warriors, based on the video game, is an anime set in the midst of the conflict; two brothers find themselves on opposite sides. In the end, who will survive? . Sponsored by DeVoteD.

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales (4K Blu-ray) (2017)

Not as bad as I had feared but nowhere near as good as it rightfully should be, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales is another hit-and-miss entry into this tired franchise. It's only for devout fans. Disney's 4K Blu-ray, however, is a winner from every conceivable angle. The 2160p video presentation is simply spectacular, raising the bar for the format and easily emerging as reference material, while the Dolby Atmos audio is flawless. The included standard Blu-ray comes with an array of supplemental material, as well. Try before you buy, but if you're a fan, buy with confidence. . Sponsored by DVD Buzz.

Attack Force Z (Blu-ray) (1981)

More of a historical curiosity due to the actors involved, Attack Force Z is a decent but unspectacular Australian war movie which does have its fans. It's not particularly memorable or remarkable, but it comes to life at certain points. Umbrella's Blu-ray release should please the movie's fans, who can finally retire their old VHS copies. The video presentation is better than expected, though the source does limit how good the image can look, while audio is fine and there is an interesting selection of special features. This is a good disc on the whole. . Sponsored by Family Boxoffice.
