Captain America: Civil War (4K Blu-ray) (2016)

Cover Art I've been anxiously waiting for a 4K upgrade since Captain America: Civil War first hit home video, and the results are very encouraging. The 2160p transfer is outstanding, showing great improvements across the board. The Dolby Atmos track, meanwhile, is pretty good, though it falls short of perfection. And alas, there are no extras. Still, on the technical merits of the disc and the excellence of the movie, this one comes highly recommended. . Sponsored by Family Boxoffice.

Toy Story 4 (Blu-ray) (2019)

Toy Story 4 may not seem necessary, but it's a wonderful epilogue to the exceptional Toy Story trilogy. It's miraculous that the Pixar team were able to find such fertile narrative and thematic material for this fourth instalment. The technical presentation is marvellous, with a few minor caveats. The vivid animation (reportedly rendered at 4K) translates to Blu-ray with amazing results, and the lossless 7.1 track is impressive for the most part. The selection of extras is adequate, but I expected more, given the production's significance and success. All things considered, this Blu-ray comes recommended. . Sponsored by Disk Doctor.

Sing Street (Blu-ray) (2016)

I love every frame of Sing Street, and I bought the soundtrack album before I even finished watching the film. This is writer/director John Carney's best film, and it's one of the best movies of 2016. On Blu-ray, Sing Street looks and sounds superb, with a few very minor caveats. Unfortunately, the disc comes up short in terms of extras, but the technical presentation makes up for it. This one comes highly recommended, especially given the disc's consistently low price point. . Sponsored by Disk Doctor.

Running Man, The (Blu-ray) (1987)

Others are welcome to disagree, but I love The Running Man. It's cheesy, hilarious, violent, entertaining, and eminently quotable. For Arnie fans, it's an essential watch. Umbrella has brought yet another cult classic to Blu-ray for Australian consumers, and their continued efforts should be commended. The Running Man looks and sounds great on Blu, and I had tremendous fun watching this gem once again. The lack of extras and subtitles is disappointing, but if that doesn't matter to you, this one comes recommended. . Sponsored by Family Boxoffice.
