Blast of Tempest - Complete Collection (Zetsuen No Tempest) (2012)
Ray N

Cover Art Blast of Tempest is an ambitious and complex anime postulating a battle for the survival of civilization involving death, magic, time paradoxes, predetermination and coincidence, alien intelligence, a mystery, a love story, obsession, revenge, god like trees and Shakespeare. That it does not quite pull it off does not negate the effort and ideas put into the series. . Sponsored by Family Boxoffice.

Marshland (La isla minima) (2014)
Ray N

In 1980 two detectives from Madrid are sent to a small town in southern Spain to investigate the disappearance of two teenage girls. With its well-constructed and intelligent script, solid acting, believable characters and spectacular landscapes, Marshland is a beautifully made, compelling crime thriller / mystery. Comparisons to True Detective are not out of place. . Sponsored by Family Boxoffice.

Inside Out (Collector's Edition) (Blu-ray) (2015)

Inside Out works on practically every level, an old-school Pixar movie with heart and laughs that has limitless appeal. As a 24-year-old male, I found it enchanting and was left on the verge of tears at times. Disney's Blu-ray is extremely good, with a flawless presentation and a generous supply of informative, worthwhile special features. One of the must-buy movies of 2015, Inside Out earns my highest recommendation. . Sponsored by Atomic Movies.

Grave of the Fireflies (Hotaru no Haka) (Blu-ray) (1988)

An incredible animated movie gets a solid Blu-ray release courtesy of Madman. Video is respectable though not without faults, while audio is exceptional and the special features are of good value. A recommended purchase. . Sponsored by DeVoteD.

Buccaneers, The (The Complete Series - Volume 1) (1956)
Ray N

The Buccaneers, a black and white TV series from 1956, is a nostalgic reminder of a time when TV was wholesome and adventures were for the whole family. With ships under full sail, canons, humour, derring-do, swordfights (without blood), good hearted wenches in the taverns and a young and charismatic Robert Shaw, The Buccaneers is certainly worth revisiting. .

Haemoo (2014)
Ray N

In 2001 a group of illegal immigrants suffocated in the hold of a fishing trawler on their way to South Korea. Haemoo, produced and co-written by Korean Bong Joon-ho (Snowpiercer), is a chilling and unsettling story based upon those events, a story that remains all too topical today given the events in Europe at the moment. .
