Ghost in the Shell: The New Movie (Blu-ray) (2015)
Ghost in the Shell: The New Movie continues to fill in the gaps in the Ghost in the Shell universe, sitting in between the Ghost in the Shell: Arise OVA’s and the original film.

99 Homes (Blu-ray) (2014)
99 Homes is a focused little character-centric thriller with fascinating insight into the US housing crisis and how it affected the working class. It's not the definitive film on the topic, but it is valuable all the same, and a worthwhile companion piece to the recent The Big Short. Madman's Blu-ray release is slightly underwhelming. Audio is strong, but video is average and there isn't much in the way of extras. I'll give this one a mild recommendation on the strength of the movie itself, however.

Assassination Classroom (Ansatsu Kyoshitsu) (Blu-ray) (2015)
Assassination Classroom is wry and funny and has a simple premise; Class 3-E must kill their teacher within the year to save the world from destruction. Mind you, that is harder said than done as the teacher is a yellow, three metre high octopus who moves at a speed of Mach 20 and cannot be killed by normal weapons!
