Blinded by the Light (Blu-ray) (2019)

I loved Blinded by the Light, and whenever I've recommended the movie to family or friends, they thank me for it. It's a feel-good triumph, and it's exactly the type of movie I needed in 2020. It also made me think about my late father, who was a huge Springsteen fan. That kind of profound connection is rare in cinema. On Blu-ray, the movie looks and sound great, with minor caveats. In a perfect world, there would be a 4K release, but I'm not too bothered. The extras, unfortunately, are a bit disappointing. All in all, this one comes highly recommended. .

Sharpe's Sword (Blu-ray) (1995)
Ray N

Sharpe’s Sword is another strong film in the Sharpe series. There is bloody action during assaults on a French fort but this film is more about intrigue and betrayal where Sharpe, near death after being badly wounded and having broken his sword, must unmask a traitor, protect an English spy, capture a French fort and encourage Harper to make an honest woman of Ramona. Sharpe’s Sword is included in the seven Blu-ray, 14 film Sharpe: The Classic Collection released by ViaVision. . Sponsored by Family Boxoffice.

Future Man: Season 3 (Blu-ray) (2019)
Ray N

Sci-fi comedy Future Man in its third and final season remains irreverent, juvenile and very funny, but this season, for a time travel show, is more straightforward without the mind-numbing time travel paradoxes of the previous two seasons. However, time travel continues to throw up a myriad of unexpected complications for those who wish to save the world! . Sponsored by Disk Doctor.

Sharpe's Battle (Blu-ray) (1995)
Ray N

Sharpe’s Battle is a ripper. It is action packed with numerous skirmishes, ambushes and battles but in addition Sharpe must unmask a traitor, whip a brigade of ceremonial Irish soldiers into shape, deal with mutinous troops and engage in a bit of marriage counselling. Sharpe’s Battle is included in the seven Blu-ray, 14 film Sharpe: The Classic Collection released by ViaVision. . Sponsored by Disk Doctor.

Shadow (Ying) (Blu-ray) (2018)
Ray N

Shadow is directed by the great Zhang Yimou (Raise the Red Lantern, Hero, House of Flying Daggers). Set in the Three Kingdoms Period of Chinese history Shadow is a story about loss, love, subterfuge and identity. Zhang has long been known for his use of colour yet Shadow has been made with a black, white and charcoal scheme that resembles Chinese water and ink wash paintings. It looks stunning and seldom has the look of a film so reflected its themes. . Sponsored by Atlantic DVD.
