Site moving to a new IP address
Michael D
Over the course of the next week or so, the site is going to migrate to a new IP address, courtesy of the NBN. Last time I moved the site, it was down for a few days, but I have learned from that experience and hopefully this time the move will be almost transparent.

Upgrade (Blu-ray) (2018)

For my money, Upgrade is the film of the year. Smart, exhilarating and slickly-produced, it blew me away with I saw it in cinemas, and it holds up on home video. Coming to Blu-ray from Madman, Upgrade looks and sounds fantastic, ably replicating the cinematic experience. I do wish that we got a 4K release, but beggars can't be choosers - at least it's being released on Blu-ray despite underperforming at the box office. The special features are disappointing in terms of quantity, but Whannell's commentary track is top-notch, making this worth the purchase. All things considered, this one comes highly recommended. .

Every Day (2018)
Ray N

Every Day is a surprise; it avoids the clichés of teen coming of age romances and is a layered and poignant story about identity, relationships, family, understanding who you are, equality and individuality. It is romantic, funny and very entertaining, with a beautiful performance by Australian Angourie Rice. . Sponsored by Atlantic DVD.

Not Another Teen Movie (Blu-ray) (2001)

Not Another Teen Movie is not exactly fondly remembered in popular cinematic lexicon, but it's one of the best parody movies to date. I laughed so hard that I cried, and it stands up to repeat viewings. This one will see repeat rotation in my household for a long time to come. Debuting on Blu-ray for the first time ever in Australia, Shock Entertainment provide the extended director's cut, which is a worldwide exclusive at the time of writing. The video presentation is nothing remarkable, but it's perfectly watchable. The audio, meanwhile, is likewise effective. The complete lack of extras is disappointing, however. All things considered, though, this release comes recommended, but at sale price. . Sponsored by Family Boxoffice.

Counselor, The (Blu-ray) (2013)
Ray N

The Counselor is an original screenplay by novelist Cormac McCarthy, directed by Ridley Scott. With its wordy dialogue, steady pacing and refusal to explain almost everything it has not had good reviews but if you are patient enough to allow it to unfurl at its own pace, and you pay attention, the film has its rewards. A stellar cast including Michael Fassbender, Penelope Cruz, Javier Barden, Cameron Diaz and Brad Pitt does not hurt either. . Sponsored by Disk Doctor.

Ocean's 8 (4K Blu-ray) (2018)

This is a very disappointing release, a shallow and contrived film on a UHD release which is only a little better than the accompanying Blu-ray. . Sponsored by Atlantic DVD.

Blue Planet II (4K Blu-ray) (2017)

If you have splashed out for a 4K setup and do not own this set, run not walk to your local retailer and pick it up. Breath taking, eye popping, stunning, beautiful, incredible clarity and colour - none of these superlatives really do it justice. Needs to be seen to be believed. . Sponsored by DVD Buzz.
